Sunday Scavenger Hunt

This is my first time doing the scavenger hunt.  I have been taking photos for it all week but have either used them in my Project 365 or another post.  So I apologize if some of my themes appear more than once.  I will make sure that no picture repeats.
I wanted to do something different than just take a picture of a window or a door.  I had a few other ideas too, but this is the one that became a reality.  My front windows face west which makes this the sun just before it sets.

This was a more difficult photo to take than it should have been.  Theory- put on a movie and she will watch it and I can get my eyelash pictures.  Reality-  my too smart stinker of a daughter (who has decided not to willingly be the subject of my photos anymore) knew that was what I was doing and started blinking really fast just so that her lashes would be blurry.   *sigh*

Borrowed from my dear daughter.

Leaf Veins
I have to tell you that this also was not an easy photo to take.  (I think that I picked the wrong day to try all this... everything worked against me.)  The wind was blowing pretty hard.  This is the white birch tree at my mother-in-law's house.  The beetles are obviously back again.

Faceless Portrait
I'll admit that this subject had me stumped for a while.  I couldn't think of anything that would work except the back of my daughter's head.  The answer came to me when I noticed that my daughter's fingernails were painted two different colors.  One is pink, the other is black.  Then I noticed that her two aunts both had their nails painted the same.  One girl has the black fingernails, the other has the pink nails.  Kiera has one hand to match them both.  How is that for not taking sides?


  1. The light you caught in the eye of your eyelash shot is ahhhhhmazing!!

  2. Wow, all of your interpretations are awesome! Great shots! For not holding her eyes still, you got a great shot for eyelashes. And I really love those leaf veins. But I think my favorite is the window shot. That is a great capture.
