IHF Photo Challenge ~~ Black

This week IHF Photo Challenge is "black".   While I know that there is not a whole lot of black in this photo there is definitely a lot of personality and sassiness!!   This little girl is a natural in front of the camera.

IHF ~ Let Them Be Little

A dream is a wish your heart makes when you're fast asleep.  In dreams you will lose your heartaches.  Whatever you wish for, you keep.  Have faith in your dreams and someday, your rainbow will come smiling through.  No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing, the dreams that you wish will come true.
~ Cinderella


I BELIEVE that this is the one place where everyone can be little (young).  This was taken this last month when a bunch of family members took a trip to Disney World to celebrate my great niece Samantha's 2nd Birthday.   She definitely has the best seat in the house (with the help of her Daddy).

IHF - Tickled Pink

Well I sure have taken a long break from blogging and participating in my favorite weekly challenges.  Been extremely busy with, well just life.   Family coming into town, niece moving to a college town, a trip to Disney, couple trips to Miami, shot a wedding, a baptism, and two of the cutest little girls around. 


Luckily, just this weekend I did the Fabulous Ms L's 3 month's photos and what a delightful little peanut she was.  Here she is with her favorite pink bear just laying around in the front yard enjoying the breeze under her favorite tree in her front yard. 

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Scavenger Hunt Sunday ~ 09/25/2011

This week I decided to to my Scavenger Hunt early since I was going to be busy all day on Sunday. I had an interesting and fun time figuring out the Color Wheel (Monocramatic/Analogous) it put a whole different look on things as I was looking for something to complete that prompt. The Scarf prompt is the only one I dug into the archives. I had one of me, from earlier this month with a scarf wrapped around my hair (very Elizabeth Taylor looking .. haha)sitting in a boat, but since I used myself for the low key I didn't want to overdo ME!! LOL

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my interpretations and I look forward to checking out some of the very amazing shots from all of you.

Happy Sunday and hope everyone has a fabulous week!!

Low Key
I decided to do this for two reasons...one because my husband had already sat for me earlier this week for something else and two since I am starting a 30 day challenge and the First Day (today) is Self Portrait!!  :)


The Color Wheel:   Analogous Color
"Analogous colors are colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel. Some examples are green, yellow green, and yellow or red, orange and yellow. Analogous color schemes are often found in nature and are pleasing to the eye."
This stood out to me....I think it works??

Circle

Scarf
Okay so this one I went into the archives. :)

Phone
I can't tell you how hard it was to fine this phone!  You don't realize there aren't that many around until you start looking for one.   I honestly don't remember the last time I used one of these....Can you?? 

Next weeks prompts:
 
  1. Inspired by a Book or Movie
  2. Brown
  3. Hazy 
  4. Coffee or Tea 
  5. Linger

{Show off Shot} for the week....

So I was visiting Natalie's Blog (checking out her amazing work) and ran into this curious little blog (hosted by And then, she [snapped] ) so I thought I'd join in the FUN this week.

My husband had told me about Cattails and how as a young boy they would pick them, take them home, put them out to dry and then once dry, they would burn them.  And the smell was heavenly.   So he brought one home the other day and last night we burned one.  I have to agree that the smell is quite awesome.  He told me that that smell took him right back to his youth. Funny how certain things, whether smell, food, places, etc. take you right back to  those younger, carefree days. 

So here is my show off image for this week plus I added a few more for fun!  Make sure you all go check out all the fabulous entries at Show Off Your Shot!
















Here are a few more shots of the smoldering, amazing smelling Cattail!!
