Scavenger Hunt 5-27

Beneath Your Feet
Sandals. Summer footwear. Great in this hot weather.  My favorite flip flops are on the right.  My second favorites are on the left.  
Capturing Movement
I took several shots of movement this week, but this first one I took became my favorite. It shows movement in my neighborhood, different than what I normally see.  A fireman flushing out the fire hydrant, and an elderly man pedaling away on the bike.  Then there’s the movement of the water, the movement of the man’s arm as he works on that hydrant. 
Homemade oatmeal raisin cookies, made as a bar cookie instead of drop cookies. Either way they are yummy. I use the recipe on the oatmeal box.  No, there are none left. The lighting? I set this on a windowsill in my kitchen and used natural light.
 Face Your Fears
It’s all about those gas prices. Listening to the news I heard the word “fears” in the context of a segment on gas prices this holiday weekend.  I don’t live in fear of gas prices…but they certainly make a great impact on how much we do these days.  (A Lightroom preset was used to get the look you see here.)


I just took this one a few minutes ago. Currently I am watering my little vegetable garden that is just outside my backdoor.  We have not had decent rainfall in at least two weeks, and I’m hoping that will change in the next couple of days. Meanwhile I bought a ‘soaker’ hose, pictured here, which slowly and efficiently drips the water onto the ground.  I’m looking forward to some green peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and kale in a few weeks.

  1. Nice set. Love that triptych. Those homemade bars look wonderful. Living alone, I never bake. How come I don't lose weight then?
    You know-just sayin', back in March those media alarmists said gas would be at $7.00 by Memorial Day-over and over they make people afraid, and most the time for no reason.
    Happy day Deborah. Buy a little extra gas and have fun.

  2. Love all of these! Love how the motion shot just happened in front of you!! I love the sun flare on the soaker hose!! Great capture!!

  3. Yes. Great pictures. Current is wonderful and your neighborhood is great. Texture would not last long at my place. Great shots again. Thanks

  4. These were fun, I really need to try and do this one week. The bar cookies on the windowsill came out great, will remember that for myself. The gas prices effect us a lot, my hubby works about 40mts away from home and a tank of gas doesn't last a week anymore for him. Love the action your in your neighborhood, great photo!!! We need rain for our garden also, hope it comes soon. You will love eating your own fresh veggies.

    Thanks for the fun post, always love reading these.

  5. I really like that last shot. 🙂

    I've always been meaning to try and make cookie bars, but have yet to do so. Seeing your pic is reminding me that I need to cross that off my to-do list soon.
