Scavenger Hunt Sunday - The Easter Edition 2012

Good morning, and Happy Easter to all.  All the prompts this week relate to Spring, Easter and New Beginnings which is so perfect for today.  I hope your day is spent being with those you love and doing all the things that make you happy.  I am off to my daughter's to spend the day with family.

Our prompts this week are:

  • New
  • Life
  • Fragrant
  • Pink
  • Obvious
NEW ~ Well, I finally finished the project I have been puttering with all week.  I have been wanting to display some of my photos for awhile now.  Gathered all different ways via Pinterest and Terri's post on Focusing on Life.  They are not on canvas, but are printed on canvas type paper I purchased at Dick Blick's Art Supply and then framed in clip frames from Michael's. Each one measures 8.5 x 11, perfect size for printing at home.   I would have loved to have these on canvas, but way too expensive for my pocketbook.  There is a glare from the lamp, but this room is so dark that if I didn't have the lamp on, I couldn't get the picture....hmmm maybe I should look into speedlights.  


LIFE ~ So much new growth coming to life around it is difficult to pick only one.  These 2 shots were the new foliage appearing on the trees.  Never noticed how beautiful this early stage in the life of the leaves was until I started to photograph nature.

Red Maple (this is one of the pics on the wall above, hard to see because of the glare)


Green Maple


New pinecone


FRAGRANT ~  Not much that is more fragrant that lilacs blooming.


PINK - absolutely delicious pink....


And finally, OBVIOUS - Obviously this bee's butt has grown since the flowers burst into bloom sucking up all that sweet nectar.  Should we tell him his butt's getting too big for those wings??


Linking all these to Ashley's blog Ramblings and Photos for Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  Come on over and join, it's so much fun.



Until next time.....
