Scavenger Hunt

I thought I'd have a little fun today by joining in on the Scavenger Hunt going on over at Ashley's blog.
I found out about it by looking at my friend, Linda's blog. ( Make sure to take a look. Linda has some fabulous photos!!)
Each week, participants are given a list of things to search for during the week. I have to admit, I forgot what they were all week, until Friday. I would see something and think to myself, "hmmm, that would make a great shot. I wonder if it's on the scavenger hunt?" Great logic, right?

Here is what was REALLY on the list:

Monochromatic/Analogous color:

this was extra tough, as it's been hotter than a lot of our summer days this past week.  Today it's gloomy and chilly. A woman at church this morning was wearing the most gorgeous scarf in a shade of sage green I had never seen before. Since it's probably not real appropriate to take out my Iphone in the middle of church and snap her photo, I asked Miss Party to pose. She is wearing one of my favorites that I bought when I went to India.

Next is Low Key.
You aren't really supposed to pull out of your archives, but it was either this or the one Doug took of Brenna and I last night watching USC get slaughtered by Arizona State. Let's just say I was so tired last night, I was asleep by 8:30 and the photo reflects that.
Instead, I'll pull the one from Michaelangelo's Piazza, where I caught Lauren in a very quiet moment by herself:

Circle is next, and I saw this on my walk this morning:

Next is phone. Phone? That's what I thought. How boring are phones right now? They all look the same. They are all cellular.
Except for the two I found in the new yogurt shop last night.
It only cost me $2.18 for this photo.
I went back in today after church to ask to take a photo of their phones and I just couldn't pass up a little bit more of the peanut butter frozen yogurt. Just a little.
It was worth it for the photo of the phones.

There you have it.
Take a minute and stop over at Ashley's and see what others caught this week!
