Scavenger Hunt Sunday

High Key

Bedroom
love this.my gold-star girl
This is one from the archives - I've been writing all week and all of the bedrooms are not photograph ready.

Something Tiny

Trying to photograph this little pendant was literally exhausting. It is something that my parents gave to m when I was about fourteen or fifteen.

Off in the Distance

This rather pathetic photo is supposed to be a photo of our neighborhood pool "off in the distance" taken from our door. You can see the pool and the tall evergreen trees that surround it - if you look really closely. For something less pathetic here is a favorite one from my archives that fits this challenge well.

Stripes

There were about a million things I thought of for stripes - my stretch marks were one of them - I'm sure you're glad I settled on something else! This is from my favorite mug - it's stripes, right?

Wonderful job Faith - I really like your bedroom diptych. You always remind me of those out of focus pairings to create extra interest. Love that.

I adore Starburst jelly beans! It used to be you could find them anywhere but now they only sell them at Easter (here anyway). A very worthy subject. I'm glad to hear I wasn't the only one who had to Google "high key". I loved seeing your tutorial about how you did it. In my case, I mostly shoot in the evenings since I work all day. I took two pieces of white card stock and shot mine on a shelf in my pantry! It's painted bright white and I used a LightScoop to bounce the light. The card stock was for the background and to block out my canned goods :P I made a copy of my original, used a screen blend then copied that layer and then used Dodge to brush away any remnant shadows :)

Neat tiny shot.

Sure, the mug is nice, but come to think of it, it would be quite challenging if all of us mothers posted our "favorite" stretch mark pics ;-P
