Scavenger Hunt Sunday

We are wrapping up our summer break this week, which is sad and very needed at the same time.  We have hit the wall of boredom, and the need for more structured days.

But honestly, I’m sad because that means no more rest for me.  Overall, this will be good for us.  It is just hard to pull the trigger…in July!

This week, I also pulled my macro lens out after a hiatus, and used it to capture this week’s SHS prompts.  The thing I love about shooting with it, is that still life sits still! No begging and pleading. 🙂

1. Water:

 Simply water in a wine glass.


2. Petal:

I got flowers this week…thankfully! Our yard’s blooms are winding down for the summer.  Excuse the indulgence, but I couldn’t decide between these two.


3. Fresh:


One of the assistants in my husbands office shared some fresh mint with us!


4. Eight


5. Calm

Tea, for me, is a calming ritual.  I added some of the fresh mint to this brewing.  I love this tea cup my husband bought me from Anthropology.  I would love a few more…hint, hint Jack!

  1. Wow. I can’t even choose a favorite, although calm is quite beautiful to me. Really good set.

  2. Beautiful! I think the pink flower and eight were my favs!

  3. Oh, I don’t know where to start . . . love your style! Water in a wine glass, perfect. Love petal -the second is my favorite. Fresh, so simple. Eight, why didn’t I think of that – brilliant, and love the tea cup.

  4. Love eight, so creative! And those petals! And fresh – okay I love them all! Good luck with your back to school, It’s only week 4 of summer here!

  8. that is a very pretty tea cup!

  9. These are wonderful. You have such a unique photography style.
    My favorites: Petal, both were lovely.
    Eight – Very dramatic in the B/W
    Calm – Very pretty tea cup and at times I find tea to be very calming. A personal favorite of mine is Sleepytime by Celestial Seasonings.

  12. I guess I’ll quit bemoaning that my son only has 1 month until he returns to school. I really enjoyed your take on water and fresh (I have mint growing everywhere in my yard and never thought of it – shame on me!). I also enjoy a calming cup of tea.
