scavenger hunt sunday

This is a first for me.  Ashley over at Ramblings and Photos hosts a weekly photo sharing following a 5 day theme that is suggested for each week.  So I'm joining this week though a couple of my entries are from archives and not shot new this week......

Mainly One Color

A frosty morning here this morning.

Around the Home

A closeup of a glass tray I have with a Kim Klassen texture added.


This is my "cheating" photo - I took it a couple weeks ago at the Seattle Japanese garden.  It was a beautiful day to visit the garden with reflections galore to explore :)


Most of my writing is done at the computer - and on this blog!  However, as you can see from my desk, I haven't totally given up on the handwritten reminder notes!  All those things to do!


If I'd known I'd have a frosty morning, I could have used that for my 'water' shot, but instead I took this of a glass of ice with tea being poured.  The little bit of bokeh on the left is an added texture since I thought the shot was kind of boring.

Check out other interpretations by visiting a few links at Ashley's site.  Or, join in next week when the 5 themes are:  waiting, foliage, candid, knife/fork/spoon, and rule of thirds.
