Scavenger Hunt Sunday 4.3.11

This week's Scavenger Hunt was challenging.  I learned something that I never knew before, which is always good.  Not sure I succeeded in each category, but I gave it my best shot.  This week's items are High Key, Bedroom, Something Tiny, Off in the Distance, and Stripes.

high-key
These fresh-cut flowers have been hanging on for about 2 weeks now.  Some of them died and had to be pitched, but a few still remain.  For my high key shot, I held this one up outside against the cloudy sky and shot it slightly overexposed.  I didn't do much with this is PSE as I was determined to get my high key shot in camera.  It took quite a few to get it right.  Did I get it right?  Or at least close?  :)  This is definitely something that takes practice.

Bedroom
There is absolutely nothing interesting in my bedroom to photograph, so I took this in my daughter's room.  Her room is decorated with butterflies.  However she will be a teenager later this year and I suspect the butterflies will go the way of posters and something else way more cool.  :)

My baby lost his first tooth on Friday.  *sniff sniff*  It is a tiny little thing.

Notice the cars off in the distance?

stripes
The race track from our church's Wood-U-Race (aka pine derby) has these colored stripes so the racers know on which track to place their cars.

Head over to Ashley's to see more Scavenger Hunt photos.  I promise you won't regret it!
Next week's items are:
  1. Motion
  2. "Waiting to Click"  (Exploring with a Camera prompt - this follows the idea that sometimes we have to wait for just the right moment to get a particular shot)
  3. In Fashion  (April 2011 Photo Hunt item and suggested by Danielle)
  4. Animal's Perspective (Jessaca's suggestion)
  5. Many (next week's Paper Heart Camera prompt)

So that's it for me!  Can't wait to see what you came up with!
