{Photo Scavenger Hunt}

My April goal to spend time with my camera coincided perfectly
with Kristi hosting the Sweetsauer Photo Scavenger Hunt. She
chose the categories and announced them on April 1st. We then
had to find a photo for each item on the list by the 30th.
I made it! Slow start and all. Didn't take one photo until the night
of the 10th. Was done with all but one by the 26th. Took that last
one this morning.

I'm not in love with some of these photos, but I am thrilled to
have reached the goal of capturing something for each category
before the 30th. It was more work than I thought it might be
to hunt all this stuff down. I hope you enjoy!

Great job Sam! Love your take on the categories! The reflection one and the something sweet one were my most faves! Great job Ms. Photojournalist Extraordinaire!

Trujen said...

Great job! I can't pinpoint a favorite but I love the play on words with "Something In Motion"! I really like the reflection too.
So many great angles.
You really do have a great eye. We should start a business! Runaway to a beautiful place and take pictures for a living! Sounds like fun to me!

Jennifer said...

Very nice! I especially liked the "in motion" pic. Very funny. I like how you see the world.

I like them all (very funny with the "in motion" pic) but my favorite favorite favorite one is the portrait of Killian. Totally framable.

Are those your toes? I had mine polished tangerine when I went into the hospital to have the baby and everyone kept remarking on how pretty it was, but they'd NEVER think to try orange or be able to pull it off! LOL!
