This won't necessarily be a weekly thing, but I thought it would be fun to participate in Scavenger Hunt Sunday over at Ramblings & Photos, so here are my contributions for this week!
Let me know what you think!
1. Red -- I actually had kind of a hard time on this one. Part of my problem is I really prefer to shoot with my old 35mm rather than digital (until I can get my hands on a DSLR!), but I don't develop film frequently enough to use a roll for a weekly contest! Granted, I'm sure I wouldn't have had any problems shooting a full roll, but there's no way I would have gotten back in time for Sunday's deadline! For the most part I knew what I wanted to shoot, just didn't know how to accomplish it the way I wanted with the point & shoot rather than SLR. I suppose that's what this is all about though - learning. What a concept! :)
2. Homespace -- Boy, oh, boy, did I have a hard time with this one! I just couldn't decide what I wanted to shoot & didn't have any bright ideas. For a while I was thinking it was "homestyle" (I had written the themes down on a postit & couldn't remember what they were for sure), and my brilliant idea was to go to Arby's & shoot the fries, so I was disappointed when I double-checked the list & realized it wasn't homestyle.
3. Fence -- This is actually an old picture, one taken on the 35mm. It's always been one of my favorites, and even though I've tried to replicate it, I've never been able to. It's hard to be in the right place at the exact moment the sun is shining through the fence. I don't even know how I managed it the first time! The quality on this one isn't the greatest because it was taken back before I was smart enough to get CDs made with the pictures, so I had to scan it.
4. Rock -- I've had this rock for quite a while, I'm pretty sure I found it up in Duluth, MN back in college. When I saw the rock theme I knew immediately I wanted to find a place to put this rock, and decided I liked the contract against the other white rocks the most.
5. Sharp -- Another older photo, but another I couldn't pass up. Although, driving to work this week I did see some thistles that I thought would fit into this theme nicely, but didn't have a chance to stop. I also tried taking a new picture of the barbed wire back behind the fence, but couldn't come up with anything to compare to this one.
Until next time...
