Scavenger Hunt - Iowa Edition


My 1-year blogoversary is coming up next month and I am hoping to celebrate with a really fun and special week of goodies!
I'm looking for five sponsors during the week of September 12th.
If you are interested in sponsoring, please email me for details {katiellloyd@yahoo.com} and we'll get the ball rolling!

Ok, I think these are the last shots from Iowa...
maybe.

1. Geometry
This is the stairway to a doppler radar tower. This particular one was build a few thousand feet from my grandparents' home. During a recent storm the big ball of this radar tower flew off, over their grain bins and landed in their front yard, missing their new porch by mere feet. But that's not all...some other giant metal part also flew off and landed about 20 feet from their car!
Talk about a miracle! I think God was watching over them that night.
Stairway-to-Heaven


2. Brushstrokes
Just for kicks, who can guess what this is?
Red-Abstract


3. Hanging by a Thread
If living next to a doppler radar tower wasn't bad enough, my grandparents also live under two extremely large radio (?) towers, which are supported by a ton of large cables.
{if they ever sell their home, that realtor has their work cut out for them!!!}

4. Collage
These were all edited using Nelly Nero's Autumn Vintage.
{love this free action!}
And of course the collage template is by Alicia.
{love her massive amounts of inspirational talent!}

5. On the Dotted Line
Pretty self explanatory.

  1. Love the collage!
    There was a house in our town back in England that had two electrical towers in the front yard. I wonder how relators ever manage to sugarcoat that one ;)

  6. Beautiful shots Katie! I'm thinking the red abstract is a close up of one of the ferris wheel seats.

  14. Katie these are so good - I love how you've composed that 2nd one and I wouldn't fancy any of those anywhere near my back garden. With taking a blogging break I missed that template so thankyou for the link. OK you have to explain to me what a realtor is LOL! and I haven't a clue what the brushstrokes is either.

  15. I'm speechless about the radar tower landing on your grandparents front yard. they're truly blessed, despite the neighborhood. radio towers too!! that's a lot of electricity going on around them. no idea what your brushstrokes is. maybe powder? your collage is so summery and the whole hunt is so creative. congrats :) love your work. xo
