This may become a regular thing.

I enjoyed last week's photo scavenger hunt over at Ramblings and Photos so much, I decided to do it again!  Even though I definitely do NOT consider myself a photographer, by any stretch of the imagination, I have my camera handy almost everywhere I go - except when I forget it, like today at our family gathering, and then I want to cry.   This photo challenge gives me things to look for and think about as I am snapping pictures ANYWAY, so why not share them?  OK.  Here they are.



1.  Shadow/silhouette


I couldn't believe both of these turned out almost exactly how I wanted them to, so I have to share them both.  They were taken at a local park which we took bug to as a special fun day treat.


Shadow:


Silhouette:



2.  Motion blur


I could not for the life of me figure out how to purposely MAKE my camera do this.  I tried and tried.  I failed.  And tried again.  I adjusted some things... I really started wishing I had a fancy pants SLR.  Yesterday, at a HUGE zoo about 2 1/2 hours from here, my hubby managed to snap this while bug and I rode the carousel.  It's cool, but since I didn't take it, I was starting to feel like a failure.


And then, while riding the train I snapped a handful of these babies:


Success!



3.  Magazine


I swear, this is not a set-up.  My cat loves sleeping UNDER things - just not blankets.  He climbed under this mag and I had to take a pic.  Take a closer look, it appears as though he's trying to gather some parenting tips.



4.  "Ten"


I wasn't sure what I was going to use for this one, then came across this simple little pic I randomly snapped the other day.  And yes, she's wearing her brother's hand me downs.  So what?



5.  Glass


Another shot from the zoo.  I call it "monkey see, monkey do".



If you want to play along:












And the shutter love theme this week at Trendy Treehouse is "vacation".


Last time we drove from UT here to visit my family, we let Delilah drive for a bit.  It's just too much for us and we were tired.

Your silhouette and motion blur shots are absolutely stunning. Pretty impressive for last-minute shots. Can't wait to see what you can do when you have more time.
