Scavenger Hunt Sunday [3*20*2011]

It's time to go on a Scavenger Hunt - all you need is a list of items to find, your camera, camera phone, and your creativity! Thanks Ashley from Ramblings and Photos for another great week of hunting.

Camera Phone
I got to use my cool new Hipstamatic app on my iPhone for this picture of my much loved black cherry cowboy boots. They are so comfortable and I love the color. The 60's effect adds to the look of the boots.
 Camera
My beloved Canon 40D has become my BFF and I love taking her with me everywhere. She is big, bold, and delivers some spectacular pictures. She brings out my creativity, imagination, and helps me to see things from a completely different perspective. It's funny how a camera can bring out our best. This is how I can be seen - behind my camera snapping away and loving life!
 Shoes
On Saturday I went to a friend's baby shower and I couldn't resist taking a few pictures (or a ton) for my friend Megan. I am hoping to make a small scrapbook of the event for her. She is a wonderful friend and she will make an absolutely fabulous mom. I can't wait for the baby girl to arrive and take tons of baby pictures for them. She will be so fun to "practice shooting" pictures of. BTW - have you seen Me Ra Koh's brand new photography book on photographing babies first year? It's fabulous and I highly recommend it. I am attending one of her photography workshops in May and I can't wait!!! Anyways back to shoes - or booties.


 Chairs
I was laying on the floor taking pictures of my pups when I noticed the bar stools at our island and I knew I wanted to shoot the design on the back of the chairs. I searched for months to find chairs that didn't cost a fortune but had the style I was looking for. Thanks to Pier One I finally found them and I love them. The design still calls to me and I enjoy eating breakfast here on the weekends and read the paper.
 Imperfection
The wires in our backyard are a bit of an eyesore but unless we are willing to give up electricity, cable, Internet, and our phone line - they aren't going anywhere! It really bothers me and I try to block out the wires but I couldn't help but notice the doves on the wire in the late afternoon. What a way to make the imperfect wires into something a bit more pleasing to the eye.

So there you have it, another fun week of prompts and another fun date with my camera. Let's see what next week has us hunting for.
