Scavenger Hunt Sunday {July 3rd, 2011}

I am back with 5 new photos for scavenger hunt Sunday! YAY. I thought this week’s items were a bit more challenging then last week’s, but here’s my interpretation of them!

1.) Pop of Color


This is a necklace I made for my Etsy store. Want it? Grab it here for $15 (use code BLOGHER11 for 20% off anything in my jewelry shop!)

2.) Crossing Thresholds


Out of nowhere I saw this abandoned double-decker bus (more photos to come soon!) and I snapped this photo with this specific prompt in mind. To me, it appears one would have to go through the bus to get to the outdoors or to get past the zombies hiding inside. What can I say? I have a crazy imagination.

3.) X-Ray


I had absolutely no idea what to do for this one because I do not have an x-ray on hand. Instead I took my earrings and tried to make them funky and kinda x-ray looking…and I failed. But hey, I tried. Just for reference, here’s the original photo:


4.) Toy


This is a picture I took last year (my one non-new pic) of my sister-in-law playing with her son/my nephew. I love this picture because she looks happy and so does he. It’s like a captured a small moment in time.

5.) Hidden or Farm


I walk on a trail here in town that is 1.5 miles long and is basically left pretty much the way mother nature created it with the exception of the paved trail. There’s a section where all the branches droop down around this one tree to kind of hide it and it ends up creating an interesting canopy effect. Standing outside of it reminds me of a secret passage way to somewhere magical. I wanted this photo to feel a bit ethereal and mysterious. Maybe I should lay off the Harry Potter books, huh? A girl can dream.

Hope you enjoyed my scavenger hunt photos! See you next Sunday with a new set of 5 photos.

    We saw that bus a few weeks ago on our way to Port A! My mother-in-law wanted to check it out and buy it (WHY????) but no one would let her stop the truck! Ha ha!
