Scavenger Hunt Sunday Re-do and extras


So I have gathered that several people CAN see the Scavenger Hunt photos and some CAN'T. When I posted it I did something I don't normally do, so I will try again! Sorry for the delay in getting it up, I was dropping the hubs off at the airport (WHOLE OTHER post to come about that one:-( I apologize for those who have already seen these pictures and the repetition! Just trying to get it to work this time!


This was my week's interpretation of these themes:


1. BOKEH



2. BUSINESS



3. REPETITION


4. ECO FRIENDLY- We planted a vegetable garden for the first time this year and our bell pepper plant is doing awesome. It has at least 12 peppers growing right now!

One of the peppers we actually got to eat together!


5. MUSIC. The Psalms are music to me. I love to read them and sing them.






Since I had never heard of Bokeh before, I was very curious and had lots of fun figuring it out. My husband was again, very helpful by making the filter ourselves and giving me opportunities to figure it out:-)





I know Logan is quite blurry in this one, but I love how he got silly when I was taking the pictures:-)



The first one I got that turned out.


It was so cool to look through the lens and filter and actually see the bokeh shapes in the background.


It was hot and Austin's face is priceless!



More diamond shapes


Finally tried the cross shape the hubs wanted to see...it worked!

YAY! I can see them. I came earlier and could only see 1 picture. I thought it was my computer.

Thanks for the comment your boys are adorable! BTW I grew up in VA Beach. I live in Elizabeth City now. Small world. There aren't too many bloggers around here.

I'm so glad it works this time and sorry I didn't respond to you earlier (I just got back home after traveling all day). Your bokeh shots are awesome. What kinda filter are you using? I always create bokeh naturally using a low f stop (3.2 or lower). But that looks awesome.
