I found Ashley’s photographic blog a few weeks ago, and for the last two Sundays have contributed to her Scavenger Hunt Sunday on my other blog, A New Decade Dawns. I started a New Decade with the intention of solely displaying photos as I travel the journey of learning how to use my camera. The lines are in danger of getting blurred because Scavenger Hunt Sunday requires words too, and that is not the point of the other blog. So, from this weekend I have decided to enter my photos and words using my Hurtled blog.
What is Scavenger Hunt Sunday? At the beginning of each week we are given 5 prompts to inspire us to take creative photos. This week the prompts are:
Macro * Found Texture (natural textures, not applied) * Home * Cover * Tree
It’s been a busy week at work and I haven’t had a lot of time or the opportunity to hunt for photos this week. Yesterday I took my camera down to the beach and set my own personal challenge to find all five interpretations in one place.
There is no shortage of pebbles on our beach, and the seaweed was in abundance this weekend.
This prompt is for natural textures, rather than the cleverly applied textures that can be added to photos after they have been taken, via PhotoShop or similar programs. I laid down on the beach to get this shot!!
This one was difficult, how could I find an interpretation of HOME when on the beach. A spot of lateral thinking came into play when I saw the fishing boats. We are very lucky to have local fishermen who sell their fresh catch on the beach. My HOME photo then is the boats, up on the beach, home from a night’s fishing. A bit tenuous but I hope it is acceptable, I am really pleased with this photo, I think it looks like a painting.
The sailing boats at the sailing club were my next port of call along the beach, where I found lots of covers.
There are not a lot of these by the beach, and certainly not a single tree so in the spirit of artistic licence, this photo is of more than one tree. They are all at an angle, blown that way by the wind off the sea.
So there you have them, my interpretations for Scavenger Hunt Sunday. Now I have a week to find FOOD, PURPLE, IN DISGUISE, SHAPES and PHOTOGRAPHER’ S CHOICE.
Some of the photos I have linked to the blogs belonging to those who have suggested the above items. Please take the time to check them out too, there are some incredibly clever photographers out there.
