Scavenger Hunt Sunday 09.29.13

Hello!  Welcome to the last Sunday of September!  Life is flying by at warp speed these days so I'll just get right to the hunt ...
{rule of thirds}
We've been having dew in the mornings now that it is cooling off so much at night.  One morning this week, I was able to get out to have some more fun with my new lens.  

{made me smile}
A friend of mine asked me to take her family photos yesterday morning at their camp by the river.  On the way there the sun was shining and beautiful and I was worried that we should have gotten an earlier start.  But by the time I got down to their campground, it was terribly foggy.  Then I was concerned that the fog would interfere with our session.  Until I noticed a man walking his dogs along the river bank and all I could see were their silhouettes.  Inspiration hit me and this is one of the first photos I took of this lovely family.  A foggy silhouette.  Accentuated a bit in post processing.  It's fun to get artsy sometimes.

Alex has been asking to have his pictures taken on train tracks for a while now.  So Friday evening we set out to find some that we could use.  I'm using this for "lines" as in leading lines.  A technique I still have yet to master.

My baby girl went to her first homecoming dance last night.  Even though she went alone, she met up with some friends there and had a great time.  (On a side note, I would really love it if someone would please slow time down.  I'm not ready for this next phase of our lives.)  :)

The boys and I went to a fall festival yesterday afternoon where there was a civil war encampment set up.  Together, Alex and Nick were trying to figure out how to make this cannon work.  Thankfully they didn't figure it out.  

That's it for me today.  Hope you have a wonderful week!  And be sure to visit Ashley for more great Scavenger Hunt finds!

But before you go, be sure to go check out the books I'm giving away.

Very inspired silhouette image.
I know how you feel about kids growing up. Our oldest grand daughter will be going to her FINAL homecoming and prom this year. Wow! Where did the time go? Have a blessed Sunday.

Love that silhouette! As I said before, Keira looks beautiful in that purple dress. It goes great with her hair.

Wow! I'm sure the family is quite pleased with that simple and lovely picture of them.

Wonderful set. Loved the "Lines" shot and your Made Me Smile (what a great family shot). Sorry but if I could slow down time I would. Your girl is lovely.
