There's so many wonderful photography challenges out there that I want to try, but one in particular that caught my eye recently is the Sunday Scavenger Hunt . . . each week Ashley Sisk posts five items to photograph during the week and then you post and link them up on Sunday. Since I was busy with Story telling Sunday yesterday, I'm running my scavenger hunt photos today instead. Ashley kindly gives participants until Tuesday to post. This week's items were: High Key, Bedroom, Something Tiny, Off in the Distance and Stripes.
Here are my interpretations:Let's start with a confession - I didn't know what "high key" meant. After seeing others post, I now realize it's a photography technique. Duh. Oh well, I took the prompt literally and took this picture of one of the hawks which is nesting nearby. When they fly, they call to each other in a very high key. It sounds like "skreee". I love watching them soar; they're so majestic. And here's the picture I took for bedroom:
They're the raised garden beds used by one of my neighbors.
It's got to be Gypsy. Paul calls her a "doggette" because she's so tiny.
Next up - Off in the Distance:
Lately, when I drive to my studio, I have noticed this Rooster off in the distance. Today I took a picture and went to go check out the building on which it lives. It's the recently relocated antique shop called "Half to Have It." Here's what the building looks like up close (By the way, if you click on these photos to see close-ups, you will get a much better view of this cool building and its decorations):
There's also goats on the roof and an iron sun on the front of the building. I love the industrial harbor neighborhood where my studio is located!
Finally, for stripes:
It's Henry with a fresh haircut. His "barber" is a 16 year old teammate, and he really likes sporting these stripes.
So, there are my photographs. I don't think they're going to look like anyone else's in the gallery, but they are very "me." A fun little slice of my life - where I live and those I share it with. Right now. Thanks for stopping by and taking a look.
Next weeks clues are: Motion, Waiting to Click, In Fashion, Animal's Perspective, and Many.
