Scavenger Hunt Sunday


Sunday once again.. 
Where the heck did this week go.



ASIAN
This photo was taken at Lowes Home Improvement store.
Good thing my hubby wasn't with me.  The store was
packed and I was on my hands and knees trying to 
get this shot..  He hates when I do that.



WAVY
These cute little birds were just trying to get away 
from the WAVY waves..  I know it's a stretch but hey that's 
what I do..   

By the way I think these long legged cuties are called 
Willet's.  My hubby thinks they are called sandpipers.
What do you think? 




DRAW
  This is one of the drawings from my Art journal.
Pretty scary I know.. That's why I usually don't share them.




SOFT
Our neighbors tree is in full blooms. 
It is so pretty.  But it won't last long.




TEXTURE
This is a strawberry.. 
I do believe these yummy little fruits have lots of texture to them.
This was also taken at Lowes.  A perfect place to go to look for 
Scavenger Hunt Photos. Hee Hee...





Thanks so much for stopping by,
I just wanted to thank you for all your kind comments.


Hugs~

Hi Linda! All nice shots my friend! Love the strawberry, and wish you'd share more of your drawing not as close up...it looks nice!

Kathy McB said...

Fantastic collection this week! Love that first shot. Seriously...looks like you were in Asia and NOT Lowes :)

Carletta said...

Wow, wonderful interpretations and lovely photos!
I really like the Asian shot! My hubby wouldn't care but I haven't reached the point where I'm that comfortable. :)
The tiny hint into your art journal is intriguing and the strawberry for texture is awesome!

Kirsty Vittetoe said...

Your lovely shots always make me smile!!!!

Greetings from Singapore! : )

Crafting Queen said...

Wow, stunning photos!!!

Julie said...

I just love seeing what you come up with, my family laugh at me when I take floor level photos,mine are done at arms length though using point and shoot,not many come out as I want them too but if I got down on the floor it would take me age to get back up lol! Happy Sunday! X

Hannah Brooker said...

Wow lovely set. Texture and soft are my favourites but I like them all!!

Patrice said...

Great shots, Linda - love Asian and I also love that you shared your art journal drawing. I think it looks fab!

craftattack said...

Fantastic photos! I can imagine you on your knees in that shop! Valerie

Shahrul Niza said...

These are great shots, Linda. Yeah, I do think they look a lot like sandpipers :). You are so clever to take photos at Lowe's, I will follow suit soon at my local stores :). This time I'm with you, friend :).

It's me said...

Enjoy your sunday...love Ria...xxx.!

Robyn G said...

I like your Scavenger Hunt finds, Linda. Your soft pink bloom is gorgeous. The green strawberry means gardening time is close!

Outstanding choices for this week's hunt. I love the Asian shot from the home depot store - I can completely relate to the reaction from family members to the lengths necessary to get THE picture. (great quote as well)

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

I love the strawberry pic, I take lots of pics at hardware, grocery, and other stores. Nothing wrong with that.

My wife and I call all little shore birds "gomers." I have no idea how we got started on that.

Jen said...

These are all great! I LOVE the "soft" shot. I laughed at you on your hands and knees in Home Depot. That is something I would do, and my husband would shake his head and walk far away from me! But, you got a great shot and the quote is perfect.

Silvia(Barnie) said...

Wonderful photos - have a great day.

Ros Crawford said...

Lovely shots ... how I wish it would warm up here ... the flowers you showed is so pretty and makes me think of warm days

Deanna said...

You had me giggling with your down on your knees, glad husband wasn't with me comment. Wow, you hit the jackpot at Lowes...love them. I don't know the name of those cutie little birds, but whatever they are, great shot. I love them all.

Julie Tucker-Wolek said...

Your photos are amazing!!! Loving the story about the first one in Lowe's!! LOL!!

TexWisGirl said...

really nice finds! i like the lowe's scavenging. :)

Kathy, PaperPumpkin said...

You're wildly funny AND a great photographer. I love these photos, especially the Soft one. I am picturing you in Lowe's...

Tamar SB said...

Linda, these are fantastic!

Maggid said...

You sure find great stuff at Lowes - I'll have to use "georgy-vision" the next time I'm there . . . and discover another layer of experience . . hmm -
Really like your post -

I looked up "Willets' and you are correct - until you asked, i would have said "sandpiper." too.

Wonderful Day to You!
-g-

Jean said...

the joys of being w/ someone who photographs anything & anywhere b/c we don't care! love that!

the birds, the beaks look more like a willet...

i like your drawing. i like "dark" things. they have a meaning behind each drawing.

Linda B said...

Amazing photos today. I really have to laugh thinking of you walking around Lowe's talking shots of the merchandise... a true photographer! I can't get over the strawberry... I guess I just never really look at them that close... utterly amazing!!!
Have a wonderful Sunday!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

When you said you got that first shot at Lowes my jaw dropped. I thought you had tone to some exotic location. I need to haul myself over there stat! Lol Beautiful focus on the strawberry. Have a great week, Linda!

Justine said...

brilliant and beautiful photographs, I love that strawberry especially. Thanks so much for your wonderful comments, meant a lot!

Ida said...

Super set. - Wow your Asian and Texture shots blew me away. They are amazing.
We don't have a "Lowe's" here but that was a great idea. I think Furniture stores are also fun to use to find prompts.

Asia King (aka Joanna K) said...

I always love seeing how you interpret the prompts with your beautiful photography - as always, real eye candy here! xx

Gayle Price said...

All so beautiful. The awkward pose for the first one was definitely worth it and I love the quote. The blossom photo is divine and I really love the texture and colour of the strawberry. I so love seeing your Scavenger Hunt photos, there's always some little surprises in there. xx

Pride In Photos said...

Well Lowes has to love you on Scavenger Hunt Sunday♥ You show so much detail...we love it.

Cathy H. said...

Wow, great set and a pat on the back for being so brave to get down for that first shot; love your DOF! My favorite is the strawberry; amazing textures and focus!

Catherine said...

Gosh that blossom looks wonderful! And I like your drawings! You should show them more often my friend!
xo Catherine

Lynn Richards said...

Oh Linda, I laughed at the thought of you on your hands and knees at Lowe's!! Next time I'm there I'll be sure to bring my camera.
Love the version of soft. It's dreamy and gorgeous!

I really like the sentiment, Thanks for the wonderful eye candy

yyam said...

Beautiful shots Linda!

P/s: You can draw....share!!!

Dina Lettre said...

What a great take on wavy!

Lisa Gordon said...

I am smiling as I picture you getting that first shot, Linda! I know how this goes. :-)

A really great series of images for SHS. Love, love, love that pink flower.

I wish you a wonderful beginning to your week, my friend. xo.

Sylvia said...

Gorgeous photo's once again, Linda, I would have said Sandpiper's, but I am no bird expert! I love the ocean and the birds! Have a wonderful Monday!

Audrey Pettit said...

I do get a smile thinking about you and your camera at Lowes! And I can imagine your husband's reaction. ;)
But as always, you have such gorgeous photos! Love the texture of the strawberry. The detail is amazing! Love the Buddha and the soft flower, too, and the birds are beautiful. I would think they were Sandpipers, too...

Carrie said...

Just love all of these, I want to re-do all mine again now :)

Charlene said...

Wow awesome pictures you always have!! Love seeing them:-) hugs

Tracy said...

Well if I'm ever in Lowe's and see someone on their hands and knees taking pictures I'll know who it is. Hee hee. The strawberry shot is amazing. Hugs my friend!

Davi said...

Im always intrigued by our amazing photos! The funniest thing about you on your hand and knees getting the shot is thinking of people watching you and wondering what is going thru their minds LOL!! I love the strawberry! And the willet is part of the sandpiper family so you are both right:)

Leave It To Davis said...

lol...it's nice to know someone else embarasses their husband by going to extremes to get a picture of something on the hunt!

Love the texture of the strawberry. I wish I had a better camera and could get good close ups like that! I also loved your neighbors bloom!!! Is that a peach tree?

Cindy said...

All of your photos are fabulous! I love the strawberry, you're right it has great texture.

Wendy said...

hahaha, yes I know exactly what you mean, crawling on your belly to get the best shot and your company ashamed of you doing that :) :) :)
I actually like to sit on the floor in the middle of a (crowded) book shop as well, to take some reading-before-buying time.
Anyway, your photos are fabulous again, great shots of the wavy whatever-birds and the strawberry! Hugs and happy day

Karen @ Pieces of Contentment said...

Gorgeous collection Linda, love your flower, the azalea is so soft and beautifully photographed.

Sandie Edwards said...

Your photographs are so amazing... the detail and what you capture is more than just an image!

Georgianna said...

Hi Linda! I do love your photos here. And I had to laugh about your comment on the photo taken at Lowe's. I'm fortunate that my hubby is also a photographer and gets into more embarrassing positions than I do. :)

Wishing you and yours a lovely Easter!

xo

Lori said...

I can just see you on your hands and knees with your hubby close by and a "good grief" look on his face! Beautiful photos!

Colleen Dietrich said...

What a fab assortment of pics, Linda! The green strawberry and pink cherry blossom are my faves. THose birds...I thought they were called sandpipers too. I hadn't heard of the term Willets. Hmmmm. Something to look up on the internet!

Honey Mommy said...

Missed you last week, but I am glad I stopped by this week. Happy Easter to you! I love your set! I especially love wavy and soft. So lovely! I was also impressed with your Asian shot- very well done.
