Scavenger Hunt Sunday 11.13.11

Time once again for Scavenger Hunt Sunday!  I had a fun time searching out this week's items, which are: Before & after (processed image), Opposing lines, Custom bokeh, Which pair of shoes should I wear?, and Little features.  And here are my interpretations ...

{before & after ... before}
before-and-after - before

{before & after ... after}
before-and-after - after
I ran The CoffeeShop Blog's Velvet Truffle action then added a texture from Shadowhouse Creations.
Photography love...

{opposing lines}
I bought this huge wicker chair at a yard sale this summer with the intentions of freshening it up with a coat or two of paint.  Hasn't happened yet.  :)  Although the way it looks now is starting to grow on me.  Kind of rustic.  Maybe.

{custom bokeh}
This was a tricky one for me.  I tried some outdoor shots but couldn't get the bokeh to work right.  So, much to my kids' delight, I broke out the Christmas lights a little early and played.  For this particular bokeh I used a 3-flower punch which is why the shapes are different.  (And I'm finally finding another use for a few of those scrapbooking supplies I have!)  :)

{which pair of shoes should I wear?}
The white horse asks the brown horse.  To which the brown horse replies, "Probably the same ones you always wear."  haha!  (Yeah, I know, but I didn't take anything else that worked with this prompt.)  :)

{little features}
While on the bike trail on Wednesday, Alex took a break from biking to play with some leaves.  His little hands look a little beat up.  The life of my boy.

Thanks for checking out my hunt items!  Next week's items are:

  1. Mainly One Color
  2. Around the Home (Paper Heart Camera prompt)
  3. Reflection (Kamana's suggestion)
  4. Writing (Kamana's suggestion)
  5. Water (Kamana's suggestion)

Have a great week!
