Scavenger Hunt Sunday



Decay

I immediately thought of the downtown area of Augusta - there are so many beautiful buildings there but in between them are these sad, decaying buildings and houses. I could spend all day photographing downtown - but I only had about five minutes. I got a few good ones, here is one of my favorites (I'll post more in a separate post later this week)

Groups of Three
set of three
When I was looking to take a photo for this I suddenly started seeing groups of three everywhere - but I finally settled on taking a photo of my three girls - I don't photograph all three of them together very often. This afternoon I remembered why. Getting all three of them to have a good expression at the same time was really challenging, especially since they too turns not cooperating. I didn't have time to clone together one good shot so here's one of them holding hands. Check out some of the outtakes here.

Kitchen

Here's my little monkey in the kitchen.

Things that make you go hmmmmm
Captain Crunch
I could have a whole series of photos of things that make me go hmmm. One of the things that makes me go hmmm is Captain Crunch. I don't get why anybody likes this cereal, it destroys the inside of my mouth - but the hubs and kiddos love it.

ME Time
"me time"
Me Time? What's that?  My favorite thing to do is light a candle and take a bath. Here's one of my favorite candles with my favorite quilts.

Very cute group of 3!!! My kids love the Captain Crunch also. I know what you mean about it tearing up your mouth and it is too sweet.
Have a good one

Great photos! I agree about Captain Crunch! I'll have to remember the angle on the shot of your girls since my kids take turns not cooperating also! :)

Ashley said...

Oh no! Cap'n Crunch! I have a love/hate relationship with that cereal. About four months ago I bought a box because it was on sale. I hadn't had it for years. I was eating it for breakfast and CRACK goes one of my teeth! It was horrible! In fact, it was so bad that they couldn't even do a root canal on it and I had to have it pulled and will have to get an implant or bridge. Ugh! AVOID the Cap'n Crunch. I know it didn't cause my tooth to crack (the incessant night time grinding did), but it was the last straw that broke the camel's back!

I love your groups of three and me time shots the most. Also, I know what you mean about children not cooperating for photos at the same time and I only have two kiddos!

i love your shots! kids can be hard sometimes, I've stopped trying so hard to get them to smile and look this way....most of the time the pictures turn out cute anyway and can be used against them when pulled out later! i love burning candles in the bath tub as well!!

Melissa said...

The shot of the girls holding hands is adorable. It really speaks to me and I love when photos do that. Great work.

I love your group of 3! All of the shots are great though! I have to confess that I love captain crunch even though I can't explain why. I do not like it in milk though... I have to eat it dry and drink milk LOL... :0)

Your first shot is really cool... Great angle! I want to see more!
I know what you mean about Captain Crunch- it's so NOT worth it!
You cracked me up when you said "Me time? What's that?" I'm there too!
