Scavenger Hunt Sunday 01.26.14

Welcome to another Scavenger Hunt Sunday!  It has been a cold and snowy week here in Western Pennsylvania.  I didn't pick up my camera as much as I would have liked.  Because of that, one of my photos this week is from the archives.  Just keepin' it real.  :)

LOVE with a little ribbon.

{writing or letters}
Since the kids had Tuesday off of school, Doug took a vacation day from work and we made a trip to Cabela's.  It was interesting ... all the animal figures on display in the store.  It is kind of like a museum.  But not somewhere I plan to visit regularly.  I wanted a photo of the statues outside the front of the store, but I couldn't get them without getting the letters of the sign also.  And no one wanted to stand in front of them for me because it was cold, windy, and snowing.  They just wanted to get to the car as fast as possible.

It is said that no two snowflakes look alike.  But you can't really notice that unless you inspect them closely.  I did just that on Saturday.  These are nowhere near perfect snowflake photos, but still pretty cool for my first attempts.

The silhouette of the trees against the morning sky.

{on water}
The only water around here lately comes in the form of snow or freezing rain.  And while I could have set something up inside, like oil on water or something, I opted to dig into the archives.  This boat was racing on the water in July at the Pittsburgh Three Rivers Regatta.  We didn't stick around to see who won.  It was really hot and sticky that day.  Which sounds really good now considering we are on the verge of another Polar Vortex.  :)

Thank you for stopping by!  Be sure to visit Ashley for more Scavenger Hunt finds!

Great set of images. I love your snowflake shots. That is something I do so wish to achieve. Of course we would need snow first for me to even try.

Love the love sign - so creative! And notice being snow flakes - wow, great idea and gorgeous shots!

I love, love, love the snowflake photos! I will never get tired of seeing those. They look fake.

The love sign was very creative, too! Really cool!

So many great images. The snowflake image is spectacular, as well as the sunset. Very warm and inviting.

A++++++ on the ribbon! So creative, and isn't funny how we can notice, several of the words in one shot? Like your ribbon and letters too, it's so fun! I really like your silhouette, I had a tough time with that one, and had an evening shot too, but then I changed for a more playful one! Great photos!

The snowflake image is amazing! Really, it is. I really like the on the water image as well. Cabela's is one of my favorite stores, and you're right, you can't get a photo of the sculpture without the sign in the background. I think they planned it that way.

very cool water picture! I love the snowflake pics. As soon as I can save a bit of sugar money I'm gonna get myself a macro lens.

This winter really has made it hard to get many photos. Love your snow shots and the sunrise.
