Scavenger Hunt Sunday...





Colour version of raindrops on a chive
Sun...
Well it's sunlight through raindrops on a chive to be precise.
I used the black and white version of this for
The Weekend in Black and White on Friday.

... and just because you can never mention chives
too often - here's another shot of them
with sparkly raindrops.

Music...
One from the archives.
I just couldn't stand the thought of taking
another photo of my guitar!
This pic annoys me each time I look at it - I didn't have
the camera quite straight so have had to straighten and crop it,
and lose the top of the guitar in the process.


Night Photography...
The entrance to Warwick Arts Centre at Warwick University.
I like the coloured lights that play on the front of the building,
but I'm still a sucker for black and white.


Old and New...
This is Sarah, the lovely young lady
who comes and works with us when she's on holiday
from Uni.  I stuck my head around the office door and took
her photo (very quickly before she threw a stapler or something at me).
She really doesn't need much help to look good but my photo did.
I cropped it, used a high pass filter, lightened the levels,
gave it a gaussian blue to give a slightly soft focus and then sharpened her eyes.
Not bad for a quick snapshot, but she still might throw a stapler at me
on Tuesday if she sees this!!

To mollify her I'll give her some free advertising.
She's studying Craft and Design at Uni and makes lovely
things in glass - these are some coasters she made.

Cheesy...
Yes it's a cheesy and beany type jacket potato.
I know, I know but I was running out of time...

Oh my goodness..you made me laugh with your chive comment, haha. I just adore those chive photos. Loved the one in black and white...but that whole grouping of chives is brilliant! And I really like the texture of those bricks in black and white on your music photo. And isn't it amazing how hard we are on ourselves re: photos when chances are the person looking at the capture won't even notice WHAT bothers you about it?!?!? Terrific set! I always look forward to seeing what you post :)

Despite the lovely young lady, the guitar wins with me. You might even have cropped the bottom a tiny bit to match the top :-)
