I’m excited that I finally got my act together and committed to participate in Scavenger Hunt Sunday, hosted by Ashley, over at Ramblings and Photos. I’ve been stalking her site for a couple of weeks and she was even kind enough to refer me to several resources for Photoshop Elements tutorials, etc. My sweet friend, Kristi, also gave me a hands-on rundown of some VERY helpful information as well. I still have so much to learn but I don’t feel quite as overwhelmed by it all.
This week’s Scavenger Hunt Prompts: Macro/Close-Up, Found Texture, Home, Cover and Tree
We went for a walk at Radnor Lake today and came across these leaves that had fallen on a wooden bench. I don’t have a Macro lens, or an extension, but this was taken with the Macro setting on my camera.
2. Found Texture
This is the surface of a light bulb from our flood light out back. I thought the tinting made it more interesting than it actually is.
My sweet neighbor brought me flowers a couple of days ago. They are definitely brightening up our home! And, in honor of Halloween, I included another “Home” shot of our pumpkins on the front steps. I wanted to see what the Watercolor Filter would do to it and I decided to leave it.
This was a tough one and it had me stumped. I decided to pull out a photo from our trip to New Orleans a couple of weeks ago. I guess the beauty of the Scavenger Hunt is that each prompt is open to interpretation. And, in my faith, the beauty of the cross is that it covers my sins.
5. The Tree
It was uncharacteristically foggy this morning. I have been wanting to capture this tree for a the past couple of weeks. It stands right outside our back door, towering above our house and providing shade for our deck. One of the things I love about our house is that it is surrounded by mature trees. Sadly, this one has a rotting trunk and we have commissioned someone to cut it down. I’m so glad I got this shot before it’s gone.
I can’t wait to try it again next week! If you’re interested, grab your camera and link up with Ashley.
