Scavenger Hunt Sunday . . .



 . . . Awww shucks, I've missed some Scavenger Hunt Sundays lately!
What can I say, school is out summer is here and we are busy. And well, we were on vacation one week and I was still recovering from vacation last week! So let's get this show on the road.....

{ sunset }

I took this sitting in the front seat of the car, as a passenger of course because that would be dangerous if I were driving. Not that I have ever done that or anything, I swear.... okay maybe once. This was most likely in the state of Louisiana, on our way home from our trip to Florida.

Oh how I miss thee . . . the Donut Hole in Sandestin . . . absolutely the best donuts ever!! They even
have a glazed red velvet cake donut with a cream cheese frosting, Oh MY! We just had to bring home a box of donuts and this....was....my very ... last one. And I completely relished every bite!! And this is a place where the early bird definitely gets the best selection. I took this with my Android and added a slight texture.



{ hanging around }

It's kinda the strangest thing, that dragonflies always, always just show up almost everywhere I go. And  the strangest part is that they will come and hover straight overhead or in front of me for what seems like the longest time. It's really incredible!


{ funny face }

Football boy and choir girl, being good sports and if you have teenagers you know that can be a big deal sometimes! ;)  And well, if you are ever in Sandestin you now know who to call for fishing or a dolphin cruise.  I didn't even notice it when I took this, I'm guessing that's what they are going for...free advertisement?


{ space }

Oh, the only thing worse than really hard prompts is one that you can interpret a hundred different ways or at least five according to the dictionary. Okay, not that I had to look up what it meant or anything but I was in need of  a little direction because I couldn't choose.  I decided on this one, yes another vacation photo...but there is just something about this space; [ 1.the unlimited or incalculably great three-dimensional realm or expanse in which all material objects are located and all events occur, 2. the space occupied by a body]. The way the first light of the morning cast shadows of the palm trees and the hint of color painted on the walls, and this is an important space as around a few corners it leads the way to the beach,  AND it IS occupied by a body - me myself and I!!


I'm glad to be back this week and can't wait to see what YOU came up with!

Have a wonderful Sunday everyone!!
Love, Kim
XO

Kim - lovely set. I say keep those vacation pics coming. I'm not a donut person but I would be greatly tempted by a red velvet with cream cheese frosting - sounds heavenly. I like your interpretation of space - those lovely shadows and golden light.

the FUNNY FACE shot is hilarious! I know I struggled with SPACE... but, it's such fun to see how everyone interprets each word. Isn't that what makes SHS so much fun!

Absolutely Stunning Sunset.
Wonderful capture of the Dragonflies hanging around.
Fun shot of your teens funny faces.
Space was hard but I like your shot.
Oh and give me about a dozen of those donuts please (with no calories though.)

Kathryn said...

So in love with that sunset shot . . . what was in the middle of that donut???

Breath-taking sunset wherever it was. And that doughnut, you didn't save me even one bite. I have yet to see a dragonfly this summer, how do you manage to get such brilliant shots. And your kids are adorable!! happy summertime!!
