Yay! Sunday...time to link with Ashley for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.
This week I was on the look out for: Walking Empty Streets, Repeating Patterns, Floor, Then and Now, and Fingertips.
Playing In Traffic
Walking Empty Streets: I had a vision for this topic....this isn't it, but I like it anyway. Can't believe I could catch an empty street in high tourist season on a Saturday evening at 7:00. Everyone must have been checking in at their restaurant of choice for dinner. Confessing I did have to clear the roadway between shadows.
Lines with Flowers
Repeating Patterns: I love this topic Kat offered for "exploring with a camera". The more photos I took, the more patterns I saw. This was a lucky find outside of an antique store, closed for the day. I was drawn to the chair, but got the shadows and window panes as bonus. Cha-ching.
Circle Gets the Square
Floor: Ok, weirdo...I'll own that. I don't make a habit of taking my camera to the gym...but each time I use the pool I have the urge to shoot the beauty in light and reflections I see in the water. I'm going to need a water repellent camera. I also found some great patterns in the locker room after my swim. Thankfully it was off hours so no one caught me shooting towel racks, locker doors, and.....shower drains.
Then and Now: In an "art barn" window....an old pitcher still able to be used today.
Had a wonderful and fun day trip to Star Island-a throw back to another era. "Star" is an hour from the coast of NH-access by passenger ferry. No cars only walking, old buildings, a huge old "Grand Hotel" complete with wide front porch lined with rocking chairs (and views to die for), a lobby with tables for puzzles/card games, a dining room for family-style meals, and a piano that someone will randomly play from time to time. It is a center for retreat and conference...appeals to artists, writers, environmentalists and me. They offer all kinds of personal growth and artist conferences throughout the warm weather months. Need a respite from reality? Check it out.
Fingertips: I felt almost guilty taking this shot of a young couple at sundown. There's a part of me that wishes I was that girl. I suppose it would have been good to crop this down, remove the signs, but they were perched there at the edge of the quiet parking area-and I was doing a sneaky grab-and well that's part of the charm of young love-doesn't matter where you're sneaking off to.
Thanks for checking out my scavenger finds, now on with the rest of the day. I hope you have a pleasant and restful one planned for yourself.
