Scavenger Hunt Sunday..

I thought I would pop in and show you some photos today.
I have to admit I cheated..
I got almost all these photos from my archive.
But I am pretty sure I have never posted any of them before.

So here we go!



Yellow

My Lantanas are all starting to bloom..
The yellow one make my yard look so bright and happy!
But I do love the purple ones also.





Something that makes you smile.

Playing with photoshop always makes me smile.






Ancient or Antique

My Father-inlaw pick up this old camera at an antique shop
for $25 bucks.  I let me snap off a couple of photos of it.
Can you read the date. 1910.  How cool is that.





Splash

This shot was taken in while I was on vacation in California.
I really do need some practice on my splash shots.





In the Sun

This is a palm tree that sits in my front yard.
It was tough trying to get a photo of it cause it sits so close
to my house.


Did you notice there was not a lot of color in my post today.
No that does not mean I am in a colorless mood.  Hee Hee...
I am having a pretty happy weekend so far.

To see all the other entries you can hop on over
to Ashley's site HERE. 
Thanks so much Ashley for hosting SHS!



Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Linda

I did notice all the black and white photos here, but they are just stunning! With or without color, you do take amazing photos, Linda!

Gayle Price said...

The first photo makes up for the lack of colour in the others.....I absolutely love the "splash' ! I don't know if it's the composition, the black and white, the water spilling down the sides or the beautiful decorative details on the fountain...what ever it is, I just want a big blow up of it on my wall. The old camera, how beautiful, love vintage. All beautiful shots Linda. xx
