Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I'm on the hunt with Ashley again.  This week I hunted with another SHS'er.  It was so much fun to spend the day with her and learn from her.  She is an amazing woman and am so blessed to call her friend.  I am very thankful God brought the two of us together.


1.  SMILE


I need to give a shout out to my friend, Doodlebug, for finding this for me.  (I think he just didn't want me to take another picture of him!) 




2.  STAND ALONE



I struggled with this prompt all week.  I had no idea what to capture to represent Stand Alone and then all of the sudden the words to a song from Sunday School came to my head...

The B-I-B-L-E
Yes, that's the book for me, 
I STAND ALONE on the word of God the B-I-B-L-E.

I am so glad I captured this picture last Saturday when I was out and about!



3.  SOMETHING OLD/RUSTY


Last Saturday when we woke up to all the snow, I decided to go check out this church.  While I was in the parking lot taking pictures, a man asked me if I wanted to see the inside.  While we were inside the church, I took the picture of the Bible and cross above.  He proceeded to talk about the church.  The original church was built in 1860 on a different location on the property but was later moved to it's current location.  The church then burnt down and the current building was constructed on the old foundation.  You can't help but feel all warm and cozy when you step inside the sanctuary, if I closed my eyes I could hear the hymns of yesterday being sung out loud.  My mom attended this church quite regularly as a child and I too, once visited many years ago.  Today my dear friend L, plays piano for the church every Saturday night and sings with the choir every Sunday.


4.  ARTIFICIAL


Isn't he the most adorable thing you have ever seen?  During our travels on Friday, we discovered this cute duck.  Mr. Duck is actually a gourd, or the remnants of one! You can't tell from this picture but he is standing on an artificial goose and in front of an artificial pear and apple.  So you see this picture is really all artificial.  Mr. Duck was so cute and if he hadn't been so expensive, he may have found a spot on my bookshelf.  Oh well maybe next time!
5.  REPEATING PATTERN
A row of shopping carts.   It's not what we actually went into the store to photograph.  This particular store sells all kinds of dips and spreads and jellies and jams.  I wanted to photograph the shelves full of products.  I took lots of pictures however, I wasn't really happy with any of them.  I am a little bummed as I even straightened all the products so the labels were facing forward. As we were getting ready to leave the store, the row of carts just caught my eye!




I had so much fun hunting and can't wait to hunt with my friend again, she has taught me so much already and I can't wait to continue to learn from her.
Thanks for stopping by!  As always, I'd love to hear your comments!
Much love to all, 
~W~

    Darling Artificial - Don't you hate it when something you really like is way to spendy.

  17. WHERE did you find that parking meter???!!??? That is just fabulous, and you probably didn't even have to make a horse and buggy go around you to shoot it too, did ya? :) If you are getting a SHS photo group together, let me know! :)
