Blog Challenge #10: Photo Savenger Hunt

As always the blog challenge is issued by one of my wonderful internet friends at Scrapshare, the awesome scrapbooking website I frequent.

This week's challenge is issued by Cowtown Stacy.

This week, get out your cameras and open your eyes!
Share with us a photo for each of the following categories, and tell us about the photo, and/or the story behind it.

1. a sign of spring
2. an image of joy
3. a bad habit
4. a good word
5. a reflection of you

Get as creative or as simple as you want.
Be philosophical, or be silly.
The only rule is to open your eyes, and have fun!

I have been seeing signs of spring showing up regularly for the last few weeks. On a really pretty day in early March the sun was shining and I took the opportunity to play with my camera. This camera is a 7.2 megapixel point and shoot with a 5x zoom by Nikon. I like it well enough but have had a hard time figuring out the settings that I really like. This camera does not handle movement well at all, either that or I suck as a photographer. Anyhow, I had seen my daffodils popping open the day before so with the sun out, it seemed a good day to get out of the house, enjoy the sunshine and snap some shots all at the same time.

Here are a couple of the resulting images.

I will have to do some searching of the photo files to see if I can find some photos that meet the needs of the other categories. For now, enjoy the signs of early spring in the Pacific Northwest.


  1. It sure is nice to see your pretty daffodils. We have 1-2 inches of snow in the forecast - no daffodils in our area for the immediate future!

  2. Your daffodils are beautiful! It will be a while before ours are ready to flower. TFS!

  3. Very nice photos! Daffodils remind me of HS in Washington. TFS!
