Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

My Wonderful week at the Ocean has come to a end!
We are home now and unpacking!

Now comes the Christmas decorating and shopping
and all the magic that comes with the season..

I am back with this weeks Scavenger Hunt

Without further ado.
Here we go....



Waiting
Fishing is a waiting game..  I watched this lovely lady fish all
day. And she did catch a couple of fish.  Put them in her bucket and
while she wasn't looking a dog came running up the beach took 
her fish and ran..  The guy who owned the dog brought the fish back. 
It was quite fun to watch..  I am wondering if she ate the fish after that!



Foliage
While in California we visited a little town called Ojia.  
The trees there were in full color. Such a beautiful little town.
You just don't see colors like this in Vegas..



Candid
I had to pull this photo from the archives..  I have to say no one
has seen this shot.... till now.  This is my sister at her wedding.
And that is her new Brother-inlaw.
Such a friendly family!!




Knife, Fork, Spoon
Such an easy prompt but boy did I have a hard time with it!




Rules of Thirds

I remember learning about the rule of thirds in my
photography class..  All I got from it was that you should not
bulls-eye your shot..  This photo is SOOC.
I did no editing on it!  I love the way it turned out!


Well that all for now..  I should be by to catch
up on what everyone is doing soon!


To see all the other entries you can head on over to
Ashley's Blog..  Thanks Ashley for hosting such a great challenge..


Thanks so much for stopping by..


Hugs, Linda

Wonderful photos as always Linda....the autumn foliage so rich but soft, your sister's brother in law, what a hoot, but my favourite is the lady fishing. Maybe it's the colours, maybe the shapes or the simplicity, it just says " peaceful" to me. xx
