SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY.....5-20-12

Scavenger Hunt Sunday items: Rainbow, Fluffy, Letters, Metal and Tree(s)

Rainbow - No rainbows in the sky this week, so I settled for a rainbow colored photo I took of the beautiful glass light fixture, while eating out on Mother's Day.

Fluffy - I ended up with 2 good choices for fluffy... While biking in Middlebury, Indiana, we came across a field of camels...yes, camels. Their humps were sure fluffy looking. And the second photo of baby swans was taken while cruising a local river in some friends' boat.


Letters - Last summer I was asked by a good friend to paint an elk. A local charity was having 30 elks painted with different themes and displayed around the county, to raise money for abused children. I ended up painting the 7 ft. elk with letters. This is a combination of a couple photos of "Elkabet". He is permanently located in front of the library in Middlebury, Indiana.

Metal - A couple years ago I created a metal sculpture out of watering cans. This a a photo of it from below. I attached 3 different sized cans to metal poles  and have them in the ground at different heights. It is one of my favorite garden hard-scapes.

Tree(s) - I grew up in Michigan City, Indiana, near Lake Michigan. We went for a photo visit this week and I took this picture of a tree that used to be planted in the sand dune. As you can see the sand has eroded around the tree, exposing the roots. They are trying to restore the area by planting dune grasses to keep the sand from eroding any more. If you look in the distance between the roots, you can see the lighthouse.
