It's Sunday!!!!!

      Scavenger Hunt Sunday that is......this past couple of weeks I have felt stuck with so much I want to say and do but not knowing exactly how to say it or where to start. I'm sure I'm not the only one that feels like that every once in a while but I hope it soon passes. I have always said if only I had more arms but I'm sure if I did I will still have so much more I would like to do.
     Yesterday I read something Jasmine Star put as her status on Facebook that made so much sense and everyone should practice. She wrote "Today I'm measuring life in deep breaths, long laughs and love in the in-between moments."

Isn't beautiful?....anyway here are my interpretations.

1.-Long Exposure
I stayed up last night as everyone slept to play with the boys toys and my camera. Right hand held the camera, left hand held the toy but the hardest was try to stay as still as possible.

I just found another fun challenge to join over at
head on over to take a look; you might want to join!

I found yet another challenge to join....(I hope blogger doesn't limit the amount of blogs you can follow or challenges you join hehe!)

For this past week the picture above is one of my favorites notice I said "one of" it's really hard to choose a favorite :)

Click on the button on my side bar so you can go see all the fun entries.

2.- Shapes
This one I literally just took because I didn't know what to put for shapes....my three year old was given this for his last birthday and will probably be one of those toys I will save for him.

3.- Green
     This is one of my all time favorite (SOOC) shots and it just so happens to be green. At this time it had been about a year and three months since my hubby bought me my first DSLR. That's when the learning really began because before that I was on "Auto" all the time not really knowing what you can really do with the little piece of equipment. I was able to capture this picture after an unusual storm that caused tons of damage around my community last October but in my back yard all I found was beauty.

4.- Fruit
I would say one of our favorite fruits during the summer is watermelon.

5.- Childhood Memory
     This is me...not sure exactly how old I was but I think maybe two years. I was being held by my grandma that past away about two years ago and my dad is telling me to look at whoever it is taking the photo. This is one of the few photos I have of me as a child because my mom won't give me any more :( She would rather keep all the photos stuck in a cardboard box than let me borrow so I can scan them all which is pretty sad but one of these days I will sneak that box out of the house without her noticing. 

So there you have all my interpretations if you would like to join in the next week scavenger hunt or even this week (because you have until Tuesday to submit your entry) click on the button on my side bar. It will take you to where you can see the rest of the entries and you will also find info on what you need to do to join this fun challenge.

Happy Sunday!

  13. Hi! I'm new to your blog and I just cannot get over your {green} shot- it is so gorgeous- I'm speechless!

  14. I love the green shot also. Amazing! And I am intrigued by the childhood memory. A stuffed squirrel? And was it a birthday present? I have had some good luck with snapping a photo of a photo when I couldn't scan it. Maybe that could be an alternative until you can get the box out of the house.

  15. Excellent interpretations! LOVE the colorful long exposure, the shapes and green especially!

  16. No wonder Green is an all time fav of yours, it's absolutely gorgeous!
