{Photo Hunt #6 Results}

Kristi hosted her sixth Photo Hunt this month. I did it twice before (in April and June),
but then took some time off in the name of busy-ness. It felt good to get back in the
game this time around. I was in three states (AZ, MI, NM) during the short month of
February. That gave me a chance to find inspiration in new places.

NOTE: Kristi will post her favorite pictures from each category throughout March on
the blog she created especially for her photo hunts. Go and vote for your favorite ones!

2. “Main Street” -- Old Town; Albuquerque, New Mexico.

3. Five -- Both from Santa Fe, New Mexico.

4. A dog or cat -- Outside Desert Blooms Gallery; Albuquerque, New Mexico.

And there you have it. It felt great to finish this, and it was fun jaunting around town(s)
with my camera again. The photo hunt got me out taking photos of things I would have
otherwise walked right by. Thanks to Kristi for hosting!! Until next time ... Happy snapping.

I love the cardinal shot! It's beautiful! My mom might love a copy! The handmade pillows in Albuquerque are beautiful too! And I just love the movement in the something romantic with the guitar. Great shot!!! All of them!
So nice you did so much traveling this past month. It's cool to see the different places you were able to get your shots from.

I absolutely love all of your pictures. The tower reminds me of the front of the main building where I went to college, the coffee is really neat. I love your maternity shot, and your selective coloring is perfect!!

Heidi said...

Wow! Your pictures turned out fantastic! i especially love the red cardinal in the tree! Beautiful.
And how do you get those cool leaves in the foam of your drink?
If you'd like to stop by my blog I'm at Cake Crumbs.

These are outstanding!

Your take on five is very fresh.

Cardinals are so stunning to see in the winter -- we have nothing so vibrant in Utah.

I've never made it New Mexico (well other than the corner at Four Corners...), but I would love to go there. Your pictures capture the ancient grace, of the place magnificently.

That maternity photo is lit perfectly -- I love subtle light.

Well done!
