Scavenger Hunt Sunday...








Paper boat in bird bath
Water...
There's something incredibly nostalgic about
paper boats.  Here mine sets
sail on our birdbath.
I used the b&w version of this
on Friday, but I do like the colour
as well.

Petal...
Buttercup petals waving in the breeze...

Raspberries Fresh...
Raspberries - mine all mine...

Fresh #2...
Apple Danish - not mine...

Eight...
There are eight boats here,
trust me on this...

Calm...
Not sure what it says about my state
of mind this week that I chose
a picture in a graveyard for this...

Charlie in the sun Calm #2...
Charlie having a 'calm' moment...

We had to laugh at your calling the fire brigade! Charlie, you are a big tease.

Love that raspberry shot. Makes me hungry.

Ooh, I really like the color version of the paper boat too ~ its pretty reflection in the water shows up really well! I agree paper boats are very nostalgic. Yours goes so well with my Penny Farthing velocipede sighting. :-)

Love the exuberant buttercups, and give me fresh raspberries over a Danish any day! You KNOW I love that graveyard shot! I think it evokes a sense of calm wonderfully. Charlie's calm looks ephemeral, the cemetery's a bit more permanent. ;-)

Thanks for stopping by on my blog. I thought I should return the favor and I am glad I did. I am now a new follower via the scavenger Hunt. I love your work! I am partial to the boat in your bird bath. So imaginative. I am also known to photograph headstones and post a few here and there.

Tamar SB said...

These are all amazing! Wate is stunning and my favorite!

MG Atwood said...

Beautiful set. You nailed it. I find cemeteries very calming, if they weren't we should be nervous! Love water, and fresh. (great minds think alike)

Nicki said...

Outstanding collection and I completely agree that a grave site should be about 'calm' - a final resting place.

Nukke said...

Raspberries look so delicious and colorful in your pics !!!! Old cemeteries are so interesting and calm and nice photo from it.

Ida said...

Wow! Your series is awesome.
I loved them all.
My top picks were: Calm, There is something very peaceful about your photo.
Oh and Charlie, well he's adorable. Funny I used a cat for my Calm prompt too.

Loved your Eight shot of the boats and if you notice there is a boat with the #8 on it in the shot.

Paper Boat on the Water was really a fun shot.

Deanna said...

This is a really great series this week. I don't know if I can pick a fav among all this beauty. I actually looked up how to make a paper boat, I think they are so charming. The b&w line of boats is terrific. Love them all!!

RuneE said...

You do have The Photographic Eye :-)

Rachel Hipps said...

Can't choose a favorite-- they're all so gorgeous!

Karen said...

Wow...love all of your photos. I love the cemetery photo....the colors are even calming!

Au and Target - Posky was on that roof for about 9 hours!

Laloofah - Charlie was not calm this morning. In fact he was so bad he got asked to leave the premises!

Melissa - thank you, and welcome :O)

Tamar SB - thank you, am partial to the little boat shot too :O)

MG Atwood and Nicki - I agree about cemeteries, well unless I was in one, alone at midnight, with a high wind blowing and strange noises all around me... (you can tell I used to watch too much Buffy can't you?)

Nukke - The raspberries tasted as good as they looked :O)

Ida - As for Charlie... see my comment to Laloofah!

Deanna - Paper boats are great, and you never see children making or playing with them any more. Their loss...

RuneE - Thanks, I also have the evil eye look usually reserved for Charlie and/or David.

Rachel and Karen - Thank you both :O)

Sharon Wagner said...

The injustice of an apple strudel that is not yours. Is there no fairness in the world!

Barbara said...

:O)))

William Kendall said...

I take it Charlie's not often calm?

Now I feel hungry for an apple danish...

Barbara said...

He is... a strange and unusual cat William!

Ashley Sisk said...

Your compositions this week are perfect - I love the entire set.
