Sunday Scavenger 148 150/365

Posting in response to Ashely's Scavenger Hunt Sunday over at her wonderful blog Ramblings and Photos.  If I haven't said so lately...stop by.  Her written voice is cheerful and lighthearted.  She takes beautiful photos and is a wiz at editing.  Her blog has helpful tips and insights and her sweet demeanor comes through in all she posts.  She also has a fun cat who appears just often enough to provide a laugh.  While you're there, check out the other takes from this weeks scavenger hunt.

This week's items were: Memories, Silhouette, Doorway(s), Reflection, and Silver.
My Best Friend
Memories:  This is an old shot....from 2007 of me and my dearest friend Laura.  We took a wonderful trip to Croatia with our choral group and had an amazing time.  I had a tough week this week and Laura was there to help-she always is.  For my memories shot I wanted to post a photo of us at a really happy time.  She's the best.

Pink Sky
{150/365} Silhouette:  Yesterday afternoon I met a friend for a chat and a little red wine too.  As I left the restaurant I had just a brief moment to catch the last of a pretty sky.  I love the barren trees in silhouette, especially the one caught in pink.

Doorway:  Rather liked this brightly lit stairway radiating into the dark night.

Coffee Shop
Reflections:  I love all the reflections in these windows.  Sometimes I'm shooting a scene and totally miss was the case here.  I was delighted to see the results at home.  Not only the chairs, but the street and across the street buildings were all a bonus-and I think "make" the photo.

Dishwasher {148/365}
{148/365} Silver:  Okay, maybe stainless?  Love the reflections in the spoon and the distortion of the pegs through the clear plates.

Have to thank Ashley again....when I went to input photos in this post, blogger told me I was out of space.  I wrote Ashley a panic email for HELP, but remembered she mentioned that this would happen and that she uses her Flickr account to post into her blog.  Meanwhile I kept playing and figured out how to, as Tim Gunn would say, "make it work".  But I bet later today or tomorrow I'll find out from Ashley the best way to make this transfer.  I'm thanking her in advance.

You are too sweet! I love your shots this week - especially that silhouette and your silver shots. Hopefully my email to you will make sense. Let me know if I need to better explain. :)

I've loved all your shots!
The doorway shot however is my favorite.
I know I'm going to run out of space soon as well. Thanks for the tip.

These are great shots. You are so creative. I would never have thought to capture the silver in the dishwasher and your reflection shot is amazing, it has so many angles and dimmensions to it!
