Scavenger Hunt - Here, There, Everywhere

1. Long Exposure
This is from the archives. There. I said it.
I was hoping to get out and shoot the night sky, but that just didn't happen in time, so instead I'm sharing light-writing!

In case you're wondering, here's how I did this:
I went to our super dark basement (or any room at night will do!) put my camera on a shelf, set my shutter speed at around 10 seconds or so, then used a flashlight to write my word....I wrote mine out normally, so it ended up being backwards in my camera, but I just flipped to around when editing. I also added the pink hue to my edited version! :)

2. Shapes
I found these terra cotta whatever-they-ares piled back by the bean field at my grandparents' home.

3. Green
This shot is of the leaves from the clematis in our backyard. I did a purple abstract shot for my Scripture & a Snapshot meme. And shared some macros on Saturday.

4. Fruit
Fresh strawberries. 'Nuf said.


5. Childhood Memory
These are just a small sampling of the children's books at my grandparents' house. I wish that I could share with you the musty-sweet aroma that rolls out of the cabinet when opened. That aged book smell makes me smile with fond memories every time!


  1. I really LOVE hehe your long exposrue photo!! Great green photo also!!
    Enjoy your day!!

  2. Can you explain how you did the light writing?

  3. These are amazing! I especially love your green and fruit shots! The books look cool. I love reading books that my mom and dad saved from their childhood. :)

  4. Another beautiful collection girl - I love the light writing. I need to practice more with that!

  5. Oh...the books brought back them!!! And the terra cotta thingies...what fun!

  6. Beautiful interpretations. Love the green and the fruit! I love bright vibrant colors! I migrate towards them!! :0) The long exposure is pretty cool too!

  7. Your photographs are so yummy (even the ones that aren't food!!) hee hee

    I love the idea of a scavenger hunt... I'm going to check that out!

  8. I closed my eyes and I could smell the books. My favorite smell at all times. That is why I love libraries, the smell the old pages... I love your picture by the way :)
    Very cool series here. I need to try the long exposure one of these days. I love the green shot and how it makes me wander. Fruit is just yummy and shapes, I love the texture.
