Scavenger Hunt Sunday



Another one bites the dust . . .
Another week, well almost another month - yikes, where does the time go?
It's still really gloomy around these parts, and I'm getting a little anxious for some beach time!
I'm longing for it actually . . .
But soon enough it will be in the 90's and the a/c bill will be out of control, in April! 
So for now, I guess I'm going to embrace the gray days so that when the sun does shine it will be just that much sweeter. Oh who am I kidding, I'm not doing very well at embracing this weather and I'm feeling
vitamin D deficient! I think a trip to the tropics is in order?

Okay . . .  ready, set, go!


1. Crossed: The bridge you cross when you get to it?




2. A Glimpse: I was enjoying the aroma of pink jasmine when I got a glimpse of this woman through the vine - oh and I may have had a glimpse of the sun for a few seconds as well!



3. Handwritten: A couple of postcards from my grandmothers side dated August 18, 1918, one a picture of a relative that did not make it back from WWI.




4. Bliss: I'm thinking that the flower to the bee is nothing short of pure bliss!!




5. Gray: Is it gray or grey? Well both are correct, but in America it's grAy and in England is grEy. Either way if we're talking skies they are both, dull, dreary, dismal and gloomy. . . and monotonous when it's day after day after day. It did make for some nice tones though and perfect for making into sepia!

Until the next hunt -
Love, Kim
XO

I LOVE that bee shot and something about your glimpse shot really draws me in! Lovely set! (I always spelt it grEy...but I recently found out I wasn't supposed to; must be all that British Lit I read!)

tiarastantrums said...

wow - your last two shots are stunning!

Wendy said...

Great shots this week! Your last two are absolutely breathtaking...but my favorite is glimpse!

Danelle said...

Gorgeous shots, as always. I especially love handwritten. I just love old photographs!

Stasha said...

Glimpse is divine. Wonderful set. And yes grey, gray had me wondering too :)

Andrea Dawn said...

Really lovely set this week, Kim. So hard to pick a favourite, but because I i am deep into genealogy your handwriting shot warms my heart. The glimpse is a very close second.

Barbara said...

Love that glimpse shot - so pretty. And it's definitely 'grey' here in England, if we'd ever written 'gray' at school it would have been marked as a spelling mistake - to me it just looks completely wrong when I see it written with an 'a' :O))

Melanie said...

These are all so beautiful! The bridge was genius, but handwritten is my favorite! Fab set!

Mary said...

Great shots, especially the bridge and the postcards, thanks for sharing...

Leanne said...

These are all lovely!

Kay Rhodes said...

Fantastic shots...I love the bee. Really nice job of photographing it. I'm ready for spring and the flowers.

Tamar SB said...

Those postcards, what amazing memories and treasures! And the shadow on that bridge, stunning! Fab finds, Kim!

Nicki said...

Well done on this week's hunt. I like how you pulled from your grandmother's archives for 'handwritten'.

Southern Gal said...

I love the glimpse and handwritten shots. Military history is one of our passions around here. In fact, we just finished studying WWI in history.

hiflight said...

What a great set of pictures. Crossed and gray really touched me. Thanks as always.

Deborah L. Tisch said...

Love all of these, but that last one is really nice. Do you know what kind of bird that is?

Sherri B. said...

What beautiful captures! I especially love your glimpse photo...and the handwritten image draws me in. I'm always so curious about the lives of people in old images; there are so many stories there. Thank you for sharing!

Limette said...

I wish it was that warm here. It snowed last night! Nice set.

SarahinSC said...

All great shots, but I especially like your glimpse shot. I love how the woman is all bokeh-ey!

Seeing Each Day said...

Superb grey (yes its 'grey' in Australia too) capture - love the set of trees in the back right and the bird flying off.

Ashley Sisk said...

You really nailed it this week - gorgeous shots.

Mad Mind said...

The bee shot is amazing! I love those kind of shots. And who doesn't love sepia? Great set this week!

Deanna said...

Oh love them all....I can't even pick a fav this week. Love the bird in your last shot, and that "glimpse" is really lovely!!

Michelle said...

Nice job on the hunt. The handwritten one is my favorite. Didn't our grandparents generation have such beautiful handwriting?

Bek said...

Your glimpse is breathtaking beautiful! What a great idea and it worked so well.

Patti said...

Love both your glimpse AND your bliss shots!

Shay said...

Great set! LOVE that glimpse shot!

Kathy said...

I totally love those shadows on your bridge shot. But my FAV is your "glimpse" and that gorgeous DOF and how she is perfectly framed with the jasmine flowers and buds. Simply de-vine (no pun intended!!

Ida said...

Fabulous set. They are all very well done and really nice.
My top picks, Bliss and Handwritten

Tracy said...

Kim, I particularly love the last photo...what a gorgeous tree and the hawk that is flying; beautiful!

Cathy H. said...

Oh, I love these! My favorite would be the glimpse! It is so beautiful and brings such nostalgic feelings!

Linda R said...

WOW!! These are all amazing...

Ebony said...

Your macro is great! I especially love Handwritten... so awesome. Great interpretation, and love the tone of the shot.

Marvett Smith said...

Love your handwritten image. Looking back in time is my favorite!

Christine E-E said...

your photos are incredible. Although I loved the shot of the bee, I have to say the handwritten note & photo touched my heart. I love fountain pens.

Sara said...

Beautiful set Kim, all so lovely! I love the history with Handwritten, so sad but so beautiful! Glimpse is gorgeous!

DaenelT said...

Beautiful. The Handwritten is my fave, I think because I used to teach American History and I enjoyed giving the human side to the story.

Chie said...

all are amazing shots...my favorites are bliss and glimpse

Chrystal Oates said...

Wow this set is one of my favorites. Amazing! Following you!

Katie said...

I love your set! The bee and the glimpse shot are great, but I just love your handwritten. It is so cool that you have family artifacts from so long ago!

Amanda M. said...

Pretty photos!

Megan said...

Great photos! Love a glimpse!

Amanda said...

That bee photo is absolutely gorgeous! I also like your interpretation of crossed. Nice job!

Kathryn Dyche Dechairo said...

Beautiful interpretations, loving glimpse.

Nancy Claeys said...

Beautiful, Kim. Love the flowers, the WWI photo and the last shot -- heck, they are all awesome! :)

Nicole said...

Oh wow, so awesome you have a photo/post card dated that far back!

Liz said...

Oh, Kim, these are such wonderful images. I can't choose a favourite. I love the bridge. Glimpse is lovely. The handwritten is perfect. The bee macro... WOW! It's grey in Australia and I think sepia is great for that gloomy shot! :)

Honey Mommy said...

These shots are absolutely wonderful! I love gray, crossed and glimpse... but they are all wonderful!
