It's been a busy, and quite unproductive month. I've not found many of the things on my Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt list, hosted by Maria "Rinda" Ontivero, that I need. But I wanted to be ready for the monthly link-up party that I was late for last month, so here are the only things I have found this month.
3. A skeleton, bone, or X-ray. Lame I know, but I bring it out every Halloween, so of course, I know exactly where it is. 7. A family gathering. I spent two days trying to get my two cats to sit together, and
finally gave up. Now I probably could have gone to the park and found a
family gathering, but I thought this would be as good as any. I have
no living relatives, so these friends truly are my only family! And this is my idea of a family gathering.
8. Art journal page created by me. Mixed media art I created in my Coll-AH-ge Two altered book (sorry this is not an art journal) that also counts for Alternative 1. A lighthouse. That's the closest I'm going to get to a lighthouse in this landlocked US state.
12. A window. I planned to find a stained glass window at a church, but this one appeared on the way to the church, so I chose it instead.
20. Someone laughing. While my friend Sally and I were getting our hair cut, her hairdresser was cutting everyone up with his jokes and fun manner.
When I took his photo (with his permission), I think I embarrassed him.
Alt 2. A baby (human or animal). When I saw this family of snow geese, I was on a busy street.
In order to get a photo, I had to drive about a block away. I was surprised my camera was able to get these in focus.
Not the sharpest photos in the deck, but I was glad they turned out as well as they did considering how far away I was when I got them in view.
