08.29.10 Scavenger Hunt Sunday

In editing these, I realized I took them all today!  Not sure why I haven’t been as shutter-happy this week as I normally am, but I got some shots I’m pretty happy with, though I do have some ideas for the August Photo Hunt items that I’m going to try to get in the next three days.

So, on to my finds for this week’s hunt:

#1: BokehUntil a couple months ago, I had never even heard of the term “bokeh” before – and I have taken several college level photography classes.  I guess we just called it depth of field.  Even though I hadn’t heard of it, I know I use it a lot!  This particular shot is from the invitations I made for Whitney’s wedding.

#2: BusinessI was at first stumped by this one, but then realized I had just finished making a bunch of invitations with my business logo and website on it.  Why not take a photo of that!?

#3: Eco-FriendlyI saw this sign on the window of the grocery store we stopped at tonight.  This is one I’m going to try re-shooting before the end of the month.  It’s not my favorite, but it works!

#4: RepetitionLast year we registered for two really nice camping chairs from Target for our wedding (along with some other camping gear).  We didn’t get them, but did have a bunch of Target gift cards left.  But, when we went shopping last October/November, camping chairs weren’t very plentiful, so we decided to hold on to them until this spring/summer when it was camping season again.  Once again, we waited too long and the selection wasn’t spectacular, but for $20 a piece, you can’t really go wrong, especially since we’re not going to be using them a ton.  I loved the stitching and pattern on the material of the bag, and got these photos while waiting for the concert after church tonight (see next photo).

#5: MusicJohn and  I weren’t sure we were going to go to this free Tyrone Wells concert after church tonight, but decided to anyway, and we were glad we did!  Not only was I able to get a bunch of “music” shots, but we heard some great music and had a lot of fun relaxing and even getting cold (thank goodness it has cooled down here in California – I don’t like this heat/humidity weather stuff!).

So, there you have it!  Be sure  to take a look at the other hunters’ photos and join in next week with these:

1. Red
2. Homespace
3. Fence
4. Rock
5. Sharp
