SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY.....4/15/2012

This week's prompts for Scavenger Hunt Sunday: Simple, Grain, Transportation, Stitch and Bubble(s)

Simple - My favorite new bottle (formerly containing wine), turned into a vase... I used it for the beautiful white rose given to me by our neighbors. I added a layer showing a hint of the rose.

Grain - Oh yeah...In case you haven't tried it, quinoa is great. And type it into Google to see the health benefits!!

Transportation - For this one I had to use a photo I took a month ago. This was one of those times when you drive past a house and do a double-take...a garage filled with some kind of an airplane and an old car. I added a Kim Klassen texture layer to give it an "aged" look.

Stitch - A little girl I photographed at an art fair (I also took this shot a couple weeks ago)...She was wearing a hat that she made out of a paper bag and for the stitching...some masking tape and string.

 Bubble(s) - made by the running water in our backyard fountain. To bring out the contrast in the bubbles I added a few adjustment layers: Gradient Map, Exposure, Brightness/Contrast, High Pass filter, & Soft Light blending mode layer.

Is that the original color of your wine bottle? Very cool! And I like how your incorporated the rose into the photo.

Oh my, I would have done a double take too, what a fabulous transportation shot. AND, I do love the shot of that girl and her hat.

Rachel Hipps said...

Love the transportation and the bubbles shots especially! Awesome pictures!

Nicki said...

Outstanding job this week. I would have had to do a little more than a double take and down-right pull into the drive way and get permission to get some, err, lots more pictures. Great find!

Lovely hot! I really need to try quinoa. I just need to figure out how to cook it.

Transportation was a cool shot, and the bubbles shot turned out really cool. I really need to take a class and learn to use photoshop more!
