For the first time in months I made a concerted effort to get out with my camera and seek out the word prompts for this weeks scavenger hunt. I enjoyed the challenge and finding some camera time in the midst of a very busy week. (I did have to use one picture from my archives, but it’s a fav so I’m not too upset) All taken w/ Canon Rebel XS. 1. Cracked The bitterest tears shed over graves are for words left unsaid and deeds left undone. ~Harriet Beecher Stowe [flickr id=”8012239378″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] A half-truth, like half a brick, is always more forcible as an argument than a whole one. It carries better. ~Stephen Leacock [flickr id=”8012246606″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 2. Fallen The friendship between me and you I will not compare to a chain; for that the rains might rust, or the falling tree might break. We are the same as if one man’s body were to be divided into two parts, we are all one flesh and blood. ~William Penn  [flickr id=”8012237727″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble. ~Charles H. Spurgeon [flickr id=”8012251903″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 3. Ordinary Color Tyrants have not yet discovered any chains that can fetter the mind. ~Charles Caleb Colton [flickr id=”8012242342″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] Every leaf speaks bliss to me, fluttering from the autumn tree. ~Emily Bronte [flickr id=”8012238893″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 4. Bokeh Autumn is a second spring where every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus [flickr id=”8012240496″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] Time is the justice that examines all offenders ~William Shakespeare [flickr id=”8012238348″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 5. Fence …his affections, like ivy, were the growth of time, they implied no aptness in the object. ~Robert Louis Stevenson [flickr id=”8012241490″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] There can be no friendship where there is no freedom. Friendship loves a free air, and will not be fenced up in straight and narrow enclosures. ~William Penn [flickr id=”5232905593″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”]      Since I’m addicted to quotes w/ my images I’ve started to link to the Sunday Citar over at Fresh Mommy Blog w/ my photo posts every Sunday.

A Little Bit of Everything {Scavenger Hunt Sunday}

My camera went a little bit of everywhere this week with me.  Sometimes we stayed at home, other times we went far. My camera helped me dive into the past…and catch a glimpse of my future. All taken w/ Canon Rebel XS. 1. Forest A man is a bundle of relations, a knot of roots, whose flower and fruitage is the world. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson [flickr id=”7809455176″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] It is not so much for its beauty that the forest makes a claim upon men’t hearts, as for that subtle something, that quality of air, that emanation from old trees, that so wonderfully changes and renews a weary spirit. ~Robert Louis Stevenson [flickr id=”7809462468″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 2. Morning Light Experience is never limited, and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility, a kind of huge spider web of the finest silken threads suspended in the chamber of consciousness, and catching every air-borne particle in its tissue. ~Henry James  [flickr id=”7809465638″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] Character is like a tree and reputation like a shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing. ~Abraham Lincoln [flickr id=”7809459400″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 3. Touch With the ‘touch’ prompt I wanted to compare…some people like to touch a page, others like to touch a screen – as long as we read, should it matter? (And yeah, the book on the Nook is my book due out in Feb. 2013, I couldn’t resist) A room without books is like a body without a soul. ~Marcus Tullius Cicero [flickr id=”7809441854″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] If I could always read, I should never feel the want of company. ~Lord Byron [flickr id=”7809492264″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 4. Newspaper Another bit of fun. I went with old newspapers…one from the day I was born in Buffalo (my dad saved it)…and a newspaper and magazines from man going to the moon (also from my dad). If newspapers are useful in overthrowing tyrants, it is only to establish a tyranny of their own. ~James Fenimore Cooper [flickr id=”7809448810″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] Nothing can now be believed which is seen in a newspaper. Truth itself becomes suspicious by being put into that polluted vehicle. ~Thomas Jefferson [flickr id=”7809444966″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 5. Coffee or Tea Bring me a bowl of coffee before I turn into a goat. ~Johann Sebastian Bach [flickr id=”7812102862″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] All well-regulated families set apart an hour every morning for tea and bread and butter. ~Joseph Addison [flickr id=”7812105648″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”]     Since I’m addicted to quotes w/ my images I’ve started to link to the Sunday Citar over at Fresh Mommy Blog w/ my photo posts every Sunday.

Glancing Back {Scavenger Hunt Sunday}

This coming week my kids go back to school – all 3 in school all day long. At that point I hope to return to full capability to get the Scavenger Hunt items in new and different ways.  This week I’ve been too busy, and so I decided to use the prompts to find some favorites in my archives. All taken w/ Canon Rebel XS, XTi, or Droid phone. 1. Mobile (as in phone) Peace comes from within. Do not seek it without. ~Buddha [flickr id=”5255381313″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 2. Hanging by a Thread Fiction is like a spider’s web, attached ever so lightly perhaps, but still attached to life at all four corners. Often the attachment is scarcely perceptible. ~Virginia Woolf [flickr id=”5066025185″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 3. Collage Colors, like features, follow the changes of emotions. ~Pablo Picasso [flickr id=”5075348428″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 4. Always Look On the Bright Side Just living is not enough…One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower. ~Hans Christian Andersen [flickr id=”6038515587″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”] 5. Home Where we love is home, home that our feet may leave, but not our hearts. ~Oliver Wendell Holmes [flickr id=”6293299563″ thumbnail=”medium” overlay=”true” size=”medium” group=”” align=”center”]     You can find more pictures over at my flickr account.
