Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Yep it's SUNDAY already!!
And each week I think to myself, self this week I will start earlier.
And well, as usual I left my prompts until last minute.
But I did manage to get a few while we were in Galveston this weekend
to watch a reenactment of the Battle of Galveston, so here we go . . .

1. Stacked:  A kettle on an iron grate stacked on top of some stacked firewood. A double stack, yeah me!



2. Winter Wonderland: Well, if I lived in the Panhandle of Texas that would be easy...but I'm on the coast and the only snow I've seen was when they brought in a snow machine to Galveston at Christmas. So the next best thing - take a tree scene, turn it into a black and white and invert it - and bingo, a winter wonderland!




3. Sweet:  After our little adventure today, we stopped in to my favorite chocolate store and lucky for me everyone else had the same idea because that meant I could stand in line a little longer to shoot a few of these....raspberry truffles! (SOOC and slightly cropped)




4. Hole: Before the reenactment we visited the living history enampments where they were preparing their guns with gunpowder. This gentleman was a little surprised when I asked him if I could get a pic of the front of the gun . . .  come to think of it, I was too!



5. Frozen: I thought I was going to have to pull out an archive on this one until I remembered the other morning and how I entertained myself with my coffee, again!  Here you have steam, that I froze with my camera. Yes, I'm easily amused, lol!


Oh, boy I'm excited! I'm pretty sure I'll have most of my prompts before Saturday this week!
Continue to fun, go check out more scavenger hunts over at Ashley's . . . 

Love, Kim
XO

Good morning Kim,
What a wonderful collection. I love the thought that has gone into these and the photos are beautiful.

Cedar said...

I love the winter wonderland...and the hole startled me, but is really a fantastic image! Great set!

Barbara said...

That winter wonderland is so creative - what a great idea. And that is such a great SOOC shot for sweet - I actually though it was cross-processed because of the lovely light.

Buckeroomama said...

So cool what you did for the Winter Wonderland shot. Great capture of the "frozen" steam, too! Wonderful set. =)

Tezzie said...

Fabulous!!! As I scrolled down, each photo kept outdoing the previous. I looove that 'sweet'...doubly amazing that it's SOOC :) The DoF in 'hole' works perfectly, and the frozen steam...breathtaking! (I'd be amused by that activity, too ;D) Great job!!

Seeing Each Day said...

There's such quality amongst all your photos here - the fact that I'm mentioning a couple doesn't dismiss at all that I'm pretty much in awe of them all, but I especially would like to note your winterland and frozen shot.

Krista said...

Wow, great set, I feel like this week I am really playing in the big leagues! Everyone's sets are amazing! Love the hole shot...a little nerve wracking but good.

Wow Kim! I love-love the winter scene--I may have to try that-but living in the North-I can probably get some snow shots-we spend Jan and Feb in Florida-but somehow Palm trees and snow scenes don't mix:)

How do you capture steam? slow shutter speed?? I may have to see what I can do-even in Florida:)
