Scavenger Hunt Sunday


Okay, so I have to say that I was a wee bit excited when I saw the first prompt
this week because getting up close is one of my favorite things to do.  The only problem is
when the macro lens you have is a 40mm it means getting pretty close to your subject, as in
a few inches.  

1. Macro: I found this guy on my front door handle and transferred him to another spot where I could get
    more light to better show off his eyes! ha  That dark spot in his eyes is not his pupils, but the reflection
    of my lens.



2. Found Texture: On a walk my husband and I came across one of our favorite trees that had been cut
    down. I have no idea why it was cut down, but someone counted and numbered the years - 61 !


3. Home:  Home is where the heart is and the fastest way to a teenage boy's heart . . . food!




4. Cover:  And speaking of teenage boys - I don't know any who wouldn't want to be on the 'cover' of
    Sports Illustrated. In fact, he has requested I post this on facebook so it can be his new profile pic!! ; )


5. The tree:  I ran out of time this week to search for the "tree" so I'm digging this out of the archives from a
    post I did in February called - What do you see, the forest or the trees?

  
Hope your having a great weekend!
You can continue the scavenger hunt here.

Love, Kim
XO

That macro is incredible - how many eyes has that wee chap got 2 or 4? Isn't that a lovely compliment when a teen wants your edit on FB.

These are all great photos, Kim. I think I like the trees shot the best, but the one of your boy is a close second.

Hope you are having an enjoyable weekend.
