Scavenger Hunt December 4th

What a week! The hubs left town on Wednesday. Traveled with his bromance to Washington state to fish on the Snake River. Came home with lots of fish, so that's the good news. The sad news of the week, was my sweet kitty got let out by a contractor who failed to shut the front door. Ugh. Hoping I find her soon.
On with the scavenger hunt. This week's prompts were portrait, nostalgic, time, full of light, and motion.
This is my 94 year old father-in-law. Took this a few weeks ago when I was trying to get a group photo for our Christmas card


The antique vanity items sit on my bathroom counter. Cut glass powder box, silver and glass perfume bottle and a monogrammed silver mirror.  Sometimes I wish these could talk and tell me where they've been. No doubt a fine lady used the powder box as well as the mirror.


The time keeping deer.

#1 is in jump rope club at school. I was able to get him a rope to practice. He was so diligent with his jumping. Phew! He jumped and jumped and jumped.


Last Sunday when the prompts were posted, I went looking for shots. The rain was pouring down, and I originally thought I would use this for motion. After looking more closely, I saw so much light reflected in the leaves. Who knew? Even on a gray dreary day, I found some light!

Go over to Ashley's http://www.ashleysisk.com/ and check out the other hunters. I'm so impressed with the photos others take.

Portrait is beautifully done. and the vanity items are so rich and lovely, I just want to pick up each one and handle it. it isn't everyone who could or would notice light in rain, and I love that you did, and captured it. motion is excellent! nicely done. happy week to you!
