Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Oh snap, I did the same thing this week,
lather, rinse, repeat.
I shot first, and then I had to seek.

We went to a festival yesterday where I shot over 700 photos!
And since it's already the wee hours of the morning,
I only had time to go through a handful!

But I will be sharing more next week.
And let's just say I had a close encounter with something of a large kind
but that's okay, I really didn't mind!

  I will however be needing new reading glasses . . . .

Onward, to review my find(s)!

1. Portrait: By the time we got to 'the festival' it was completely overcast and very gray. So I was having to
    work really hard to get any good lighting. This bagpipe group is soon going to be on their way to Ireland
    to compete in the world competition!

2. Nostalgic: I don't know any parent who isn't a bit nostalgic over the baby stage! And check out that pram!
    Did you know that word is short for perambulator, thank goodness! ha

3. Time: This guy was wearing all kings of mechanical things so I went over and asked if he had any
    "time pieces", aka a watch. He did and he was happy to strike a pose!

4. Full of light: Oh, I  do have so many 'full of light' beach photos and sunrises etc., but I have a theme going
     here from 'the festival', and these glasses intruments that he played beautiful Christmas tunes on, were
    bathed in an orange glow from the (orange) streetlights.

4. Motion: Dancers, dancing to the pipers. Some were in motion and some were not. And sometimes you
    can use low light to your benefit since low light equals slower speed or blurred motion.      

And since I couldn't decide, I'm including another one of a horned owl coming in to perch.
What a magnificent bird!

Now, to tackle my pre-lit treet, the one that is no longer lighting!

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Love, Kim

More scavenger hunt items here, with Ashley!

Patrice said...

Great shots! I can't pick a favorite but I LOVE owls!

Tamar SB said...

These are great, Kim! That baby in that pram is super nostalgic for sure! That owl is stunning!

Kathy said...

Wow Kim, you completely OUTDID yourself this week!!! Capture after capture is amazing. "Perambulator" seriously? haha. What a gorgeous profile of that button nose that chubby cheeks (the baby...NOT the bagpipe player). So glad you opted for monotone, it fits perfectly! And I love your interpretation of "filled with light". The glow is so soft and warm. But I think my favs are BOTH your motion shots! That first one I just fine it so striking seeing the blurred dance steps in the background. BUT (butt)....did she mind you were taking a photo of her rear-side? haha. And that owl coming in to land...what an amazing capture, perfect timing my friend. I love how you can see the detail of all the feathers. Gorgeous.

Great job!
