Scavenger Hunt Sunday (September 11, 2011)

For Scavenger Hunt Sunday this week, people took photos related to the following five prompts.

1. Bokeh

In the bokeh (blur) in the background of this Meatless Mondays meal are lemon, cilantro, and Mmmm sauce. (I really like my blurred son in the background of this gelato picture from last month, too.)

2. Process of Elimination

SOOC (straight out of camera)

SOOC serve 1

SOOC serve 2

SOOC serve 3

My day at the US Open gave me a lot of opportunities to practice the process of elimination. Between being too far away or having obstacles blocking my view, I was able to improve my photos through cropping.

3. Remember

(Archive) My older boy entered high school this month. I remember his first day of kindergarten so clearly. This photo makes me so happy and sad.

4. Statues

(Archive) When this “living statue” came to life to thank us for our donation, she startled my little boys, who had thought she was a real statue. Grafton Street, Dublin. (Update–Read about her in this 42-word poem: The Angel of Grafton Street.)

5. Flying High

The flag flew high over a memorial service today to mark the tenth anniversary of 9/11.

  1. Oohh I like that statue – I never realised that they had living statues in Dublin! I must get my mum to seek them out the next time they are shopping there.

    Oh my goodness, your “remember” shot almost made ME tear up! What an expression on his face and sense of motion in that capture. I’m sure it brings back tons of memories. Wonderful collection you’ve got here 🙂

    You have such great examples of the Process of Elimination! Thanks for sharing these. When you can’t get close enough, cropping makes all the difference. So glad you linked in to Exploring with a Camera!
