Scavenger Hunt Sunday 10.30.11

Time once again for another Scavenger Hunt Sunday!  Thankfully I had all my items found before Sunday (unlike last week) because as much as I hate to admit it, I am sick.  Ugh.  So we'll be spending a (hopefully) quiet day at home today.  Drinking lots of tea and water and eating leftover chicken and gnocchi soup.

Anyway, this week's hunt items are Macro/Close Up, Found Texture, Home, Cover, and The Tree.  And here are my interpretations ...

{macro/close up}
Friday morning we woke up to our world covered in frost, so I ventured out with my camera and macro filters to see what I could find.  While I enjoyed photographing the frost with my macro filters, I reeeeeeeeeaaaallllly want a macro lens now.  Perhaps for Christmas?  ;)

{found texture}
Nicholas found this wooly worm, which is full of texture, and made sure to bring it to me so I could take a picture.  I have my children trained well.  :)

Shortly after Alex got home from school on Thursday, he yanked out his front tooth that was literally hanging by a thread.  If you'd like to see more photos of his snaggletooth, go to this post ... Snaggletooth Alex.  :)

I think the frost we woke up to on Friday was just preparing us for the snow we would wake up to on Saturday.  While I wasn't ready to see the world covered in snow, Honey absolutely loved it!  (And it is all gone now, in case you were wondering).

{the tree}
The tree in our backyard looked pretty cool with its autumn colors falling off along with the snow.  Guess I better fill that bird feeder!

Oh, and one more thing while you are here ...  my photo (below) is in the running for Favorite Photo of October over on Misty's blog.  I'd love it if you'd go over and vote for me!  Thanks!

That's it for me.  If you'd like to see more Scavenger Hunt finds, head over to Ashley's.  And if you'd like to play along next week, here are the things to look for:

  1. Food
  2. Purple (Shades of Autumn prompt)
  3. In Disquise (Paper Heart Camera prompt)
  4. Shapes (Ginger's prompt)
  5. Photographer's Choice 
Have a great week!

That's a great set of pictures. Your first one of the frost is beautiful looks like little diamonds. What is it about snow that makes me want to go and play in it?

You have trained your children well, that wooly worm is fantastic texture! So glad to have that linked into Exploring with a Camera. But I was captured by the photo of your dog Honey, I've been missing my golden in the last week.

Oh such great finds! Love your macro shot, and the caterpillar, who now shows even a milder winter! Love your shot of Honey in the snow, such pretty snowflakes!

This is just the start of me being jealous of everyone who gets to photograph snow. Those macro ice crystals are fabulous!
