Scavenger Hunt Sunday (or Monday in my case)

I have found some other amazing photography blogs that I just love to stare at and enjoy their creativity. One fun thing they did yesterday was this Scavenger Hunt for different photos. I decided I will join in because as I have enjoyed photography more I feel like I see the world through an "angled" lens (meaning I see different ways to take pictures around me). Hope you find it fun too!

To play along, visit Ashley's blog, Ramblings and Photos to see other Sunday Scavenger Hunts photo interpretations.

This weeks hunt:
  • Mood
  • Something Feminine
  • Something Masculine
  • Architecture
  • First of Last Initial
Here are my interpretations:

MOOD: Here is our dog Otis waiting by, and enjoying, the new storm door we just put in. I can only imagine his mood:-)

SOMETHING MASCULINE: Here are my hubby's uniforms. The boots are nice and clean; getting ready for the upcoming deployment. I love to see the patches on his blouse which remind me of all that he has accomplished and our history as a military family.

SOMETHING FEMININE: I found this at my beloved store, TJ Maxx. I love how elegant and creamy it is. I couldn't believe that I found a place to put it! Here it hangs my jewelry.

FIRST or LAST INITIAL: I realized after trying to find my first or last initial that I didn't have any Monograms around the house! So I just found a large letter "E". I love this decoration because I made it from scratch! (no I did not cut out the letters...but basically everything else!)

ARCHITECTURE: Since I found this Scavenger Hunt yesterday, I didn't have time to find a neat building. This shot was taken this summer at a local plantation/historical home in Norfolk. It was a gorgeous building and had many creative angles!

you have a great eye for pictures! the one of the uniform brought back memories of my sweet daddy. i just loved to see him in his 'dress blues'. all starched and so handsome in them. and i loved his little blue hat that folded up flat.

These photos are really beautiful. I love the one of your husband's uniform. There's something so vintage about that shot.
