Scavenger Hunt Sunday

it's been so long.
not blogging has felt like i lost a friend.
a part of me.
so i called my girl on friday and told her this weeks prompts were a challenge and we needed to 'get back on the horse and ride'! ok, not in those words per! she may have rode the other way!
 i picked her up and we headed into the city for about an hour.
that's all we needed:-)

enough babble; i need to share my HUNT!

1)meet me at the corner
love the angle and perspective i get with old, rusty iron gates!

2)mother nature meets technology
flower stands made with old..i don't

3)one step at a time
high school graduate, my amazing son, starting his future 'one step at a time'!

4)what's wrong with this picture my eyes anyway! loved the purity of queen anne's lace against this rusty old gate. i also loved the angle of this iron fence and the blur of the lilies in the background.
not perfect, but i LOVE them!

5)standing tall
i also love old, TALL, architecture!
lot's of it around here.

so there is our quick HUNT trip to the city for an hour!
hope putting together this post makes me miss blogging even more so i will get back on that horse and ride!

  4. Love your standing tall and one step at a time, stunning pictures!

  5. All great photos, hard to choose a fav, but something about the clear purity against the blurred background in #4 (or your words) made it especially touching somehow.

  6. Oh, I loved these. I really liked their on fence with the blurry lilies. Lookes like a painting! Beautiful!

    1. Oh my, I don't know if I messed up or the iPad...the iron fence with lilies looks like a painting. I'm blaming the iPad!

  16. I just took a picture recently of an iron fence that looks very similar to this one, but in between the bars was a red rose. I love the picture of the building and how you caught it at an angle, very nice. There is so much detail in the building. Graduation is a special time. May your son find happiness in the years ahead.
