My final photos for this year's Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt are finally finished. And just in time, since summer officially ends tomorrow. Technically, I have until September 22 at 10:20 A.M. EDT, since autumn begins at 10:21 A.M. EDT. but I am really late anyway, so I might as well get these final photos off my camera and onto my blog. As soon as this post goes live, you'll be able to access all three posts on my Previous Collaborations page.
I want to thank Maria "Rinda" Ontivero for hosting this fun event each year. Now it's time for me to put this scavenger hunt to bed.
2. A footprint or paw print. I took three photos, the first to orient you to my yard.
The second was to show both prints, but I wasn't sure you could see the print in the mud, so
I focused on the footprint in the mud in this photo.
4. Book I read in 2016. This was an interesting book,
but I would have enjoyed it more had it had more mixed media and less drawing lessons.
13. Moon. I had all but given up on this shot, then last night I was looking out my office window and saw the moon big as day. I was super thrilled. I rushed outside before a cloud obscured the view and took this without the use of a tripod or any way to stabilize my camera. I took about 10 shots and this was probably the best that was centrally located. Others were better, but they weren't centered like this one.
16. Map showing a trip taken this summer. Not the fun trip one would expect, but my friend Scott and I took a trip to his parents this summer because his father was having chest pains. He needed to go to the hospital, which ended up being Wichita, where our trip began. His parents live in the country near a small town called Sterling, KS.
17. Twins (and 8, something created in my altered book). I didn't anticipate finding twins, but when I found this article in the archives when I was researching something for our Neighborhood Association, I knew I had to use it. I'll let you read the story I put in my own words.
I used painted deli paper for the background and computer generated the words on yellow paper. Purple ink and purple letters were added to offset the yellow. This spread was created in my Coll-AH-ge Two altered book.
21. Me. Recently, I was at my friend Sally's. I had my camera with me, but was there to help her, not have my picture taken. However, it and my moon shot were all I had left, so I picked up a newspaper and asked her to take a photo of me. I wish I had run my fingers through my hair and checked to see my fingernails were clean before I decided to let her take my photo. I did like how her lighting made my blonde brown hair look pink. In case you can't read it, the date is September 12, 2016, which is in our time frame. Don't forget, Bleubeard, not Elizabeth, is the face of our blog!
Thanks for taking time to view these final photos from summertime 2016.
And thanks to Rinda for hosting.
