Scavenger Hunt Sunday once again…


We have had such beautiful weather here in central Massachusetts this past week that it wasn’t hard to get inspired.  Here are the prompts for this Scavenger Hunt Sunday:  cracked, fallen, ordinary color, bokeh and fence.  And here are my entries for this week…

Cracked:  What is the first thing you think of when you hear the word cracked?  My first thought is of an egg so that’s what I took.


Fallen:  Fall is just starting to fall around here.  Here’s an early fallen leaf that I found on our outdoor furniture.



Ordinary Color:  I wasn’t sure what this prompt meant, but when I was wandering around looking for fallen leaves, I saw that our little daylily decided to bloom again.  It’s an ordinary color.


Bokeh:  Those of you who aren’t into photography, might not know what “bokeh” means.  Here’s the definition:  Bokeh simply means fuzzy or out of focus. It is used to refer to the effect of shallow depth of field that creates a pleasing blur of color behind the subject.



Fence:  I guess this is really a wall but isn’t a wall just a really substantial fence?

Thank you very much for these great impressions and inspirations of what seems to be a whole new world for photography.

Please have a good new week.

That bokeh shot is so dreamy - is dreamy in the definition, if not, it should be. Great set Barbara.

A substantial fence indeed! Great set of shots!

Ida said...

Very nice set.
Yes I did immediately think of a Cracked egg for the prompt but went with the nut instead. I do however like your egg shot.
My favorites from your set,
Bokeh - That is so pretty and
Fence - What a great wall.

These are all incredible! Hard to pick a favorite. But I suppose if I had to, it would be "fence" So dramatic and inviting at the same time. Great job!

Deanna said...

Wow, great series this week, Barbara. The cracked egg is perfect...love ordinary color and the bokeh shot is awesome. That "fence" looks like it came right out of Camelot!

Rose said...
