Oh, boy, that week went by in a big fat hurry. Here we are at Scavenger Hunt Sunday again. This week’s prompts are school, rule of thirds, side profile, small and motion. And here’s what I came up with:
School: This is a picture of the elementary school that my kids attended. However, when they went there, it looked nothing like this. Finally after many years of overcrowding and dealing with impossible open-concept classrooms, the town voted to renovate the existing school building. This has been done in phases and the part to the right in the picture is the old, but remodeled part and to the left is the new part. The old school was a real mess so I am very happy for the kids who are getting to take advantage of this new school building. I especially like the use of school bus yellow as a trim color. Cool! But because it isn’t completely ready yet, the whole regional system is starting a little late this year. But lucky me! I can remain blissfully unaware of such things since my kids are 25 and 28 and way past elementary school age.
Rule of Thirds: One of those standard rules of good picture taking and composition.
Side Profile: One of the things I love about dogs is the infinite variety in the breeds. At one point, we lived with a greyhound and a pug together. Talk about the yin and yang of dogdom. Sometimes it was hard to imagine that they were the same species. Our greyhound has been gone a couple of years now and we miss him. Still, if you photograph a few dogs, it doesn’t take much to show the wide range of types and personalities of dogs. I think my pics illustrate the point pretty well. The first is of our neighbor’s dog Max, a Labradoodle, and the second one is of Olive, our pug.
Small: Barnacles stuck on a pier in Boston Harbor. Pretty darn small.
Motion: Here again is Max, the Labradoodle. Whoever decided that it would be a good idea to put a Labrador Retriever and a Poodle together had a stroke of genius. But, I think that particular mix means it is hard to keep the dog out of the water. Max is a real sweetie wet or dry!
