Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Wow!

Did this week go as fast for everyone else? It seems time is on warp speed lately, but then
again Christmas feels like it was forever ago......

Thank you for your comments last week regarding  my monitor. I think the bionic women gig is over tomorrow when I go to the doctor for my stress test, hopefully I live to tell about it! ha

Okay, onward we go . . .

1. Smile:  Pulled from the archives this week, and this was a smile I will never, never forget. This is the smile of a very happy and content little girl, you see, she had just been reunited with her daddy after almost a year. I had the privilege of being invited by a friend to welcome home her husband and his troop from Iraq almost 2 years ago . . . an emotional day, one that is hard to explain in words. 




2. Stand Alone:  Last weekend I went to a concert by Josh Wilson, a contemporary Christian artist and at the very end of the concert  the other members of the band left the stage, and Josh "stood alone" and played the instrumental version of Amazing Grace. You can see more of Josh in concert here.



3. Rusty or something old:  Yikes, I had to pull another from the archive. This one from a turn of the century fence in Galveston.



4. Artificial:    Since I started back to my metals class this week after taking almost a year off I had jewelry on the brain, and pulled out my imitation diamonds and simulated rubies . . . real or not I do love sparkly things!




5. Repeating patterns:  At the risk of repeating myself . . . I know, bad joke, I'm sharing yet one more monarch butterfly this week. Nature has some of the best patterns around!! 


And as always I can't wait to see how everyone else interpreted the prompts this week.
Join me, over at Ashely's . . . .

Wonderful! Especially love that first image. Oh so very sweet!

Each one of these is perfect for the prompts this week. My top two faves are the butterfly wings (love that!) and the first photo of the little girl being reunited with her father (it almost brought a tear to my eyes).

Deanna said...

Stunning!! I can't even pick a fav this week.

Andrea Dawn said...

Amazing set . . . each one is just great! Love the rust shot and those gems are just gorgeous.

Patti said...

Your smile shot really speaks volumes!
Love this set!

Kathy said...

Oh Geez Bionic Woman...where to even begin???? I can FEEL the emotion in that first shot so I can't even IMAGINE what it must have been like to actually be there in person. I'm not sure if I got the chance to post earlier in the week when I saw these, but the spot light on the performer is so brilliant in b/w. Love that! Plus the lighting on his hair from it...sigh. And your butterfly wings...honest to goodness...I hope you have that blown up and displayed somweere in your home!

That first one rips my heart right out. What a special moment! My brother is on yet another tour in Afghanistan right now- I can't wait for him to come home.

Ross said...

Just amazing pictures! The father reuniting with his daughter hands down is my favorite! I can't imagine the emotion there must have been.

Kim C. said...

Smile is amazing! What a real moment. Stand alone has gorgeous light and I love the fake stones!

Tracy said...

great photos and you are eight; nature has some fantastic repeating patterns but my favorite as most of your commenters already indicated; the smile! there's nothing more precious than a reunited parent-child...

Very nice series.
Smile - Sweet and Precious
Stand Alone - The light is perfect with the player/singer all alone on stage.
Rusty/Old - This is my favorite.
Artificial - So sparkly
