Scavenger Hunt Sunday


Another week has flown by like the speed of light.
And keeping with the them of going fast, 'Gone With The Wind' would have been an appropriate movie for the first prompt
but the first book/movie that came to mind was my favorite,
'Charlie and the Chocolate factory'. The only problem, I couldn't find a chocolate river or any oompa loompas.

So since I actually had an adventure this week with a praying
mantis that actually looks like something straight out of a sci-fi movie, we'll just go with that.

 1. Inspired by book or movie: I did a little manipulation in picnik since I still haven't learned how to use my photoshop elements.
{Linking this with Photo Art Friday at Pixel Dust Photo Art}

2. Brown: Had a nice walk this week early in the morning and came across these egrets in this brown grass.




3. Hazy: That's how my brain felt this week, hazy. Can't photograph
that . . . so I pulled this from the archive of a sunrise one morning
on the beach in Galveston.



4. Coffee or Tea: Definitely coffee, Texas Pecan with a generous shot of french vanilla creamer.


 
5. Linger: As we were driving home last weekend I made the
hubby do a u-turn when I spied this old car . . . it appears it has
been lingering for some time now.




Hope you're having a great weekend - join me in checking out the rest of the scavenger hunt!!

Love, Kim
XO

I liked your 2. last photos most !!! But your praying mantis looks very interesting too !

Jenni said...

They are all fabulous and very atmospheric..the praying mantis is a bit too sci-fi creepy for me! I love the bird and the old car, love the colour of the last two.

These are superb!! Love your movie pic and your hazy pic, amazing finds!

Oh Kim you're in a sepia mood like me just now - these are all lovely. I was thinking about doing Charlie and the Chocolate factory aswell. What a cool take on sci-fi and the processing especially in blue. You certainly get some great opportunities to shoot some wonderful wildlife shots

Katie said...

Nice shots! Love the tea cup you used in coffee!

Bonnie said...

Kim, you have a great artistic eye. Can't imagine what you will produce when you add PSE magic to your creative mix!

Love all the photos here. Your submission to Photo Art Friday looks like it is right off of a sci-fi movie poster! Fabulous.
Thanks for sharing it with P.A.F.

Susan said...

Kathy said...

Kim, great set but those last three are outstandling! Love the monotone of the coffee/tea shot, that abandoned car is just chock-ful of photo possibilities...I'd probably STILL be there if I found it! haha. And that hazy capture...sigh.

Great shots. That hazy shot is REALLY hazy. I have to say that coffee sounds yummy and the picture is so pretty. I am used to my hubby drinking his coffee in a mug and my mom drinking tea out of a tea cup. Great eyes noticing that car lingering there.
And the praying mantis definitely looks like it is out of a sci fi movie.

Kathy said...

Coming to you via Photo Art Friday...great shot of the pray mantis. I love the editing treatment you did...very artistic. Great shots on all of them.

I love your shot for brown. So lovely and peaceful!

I have never seen a preying mantis that color before! Was that post processing? In any case it looks cool.

Deanna said...

Wow, that praying mantis is spectacular and I love the soft sepia look on the coffee and linger shots.

I think I messed up on my comment before. I love this series of photos. The insect which I believe you edited in Picnik is terrific. Who needs PS when you have Picnik?
