Scavenger Hunt Sunday...

1. DECAY (old/abandoned)...the roof is clearly disintegrating on this old barn

2. GROUPS OF THREE... 3 playing cards, chalk in groups of 3 for my chalkboard trays I make & scrabble tiles with a score of 3 each

3. KITCHEN...fresh flowers for my kitchen table, with my kids lovely art wall in the background

4. THINGS THAT MAKE YOU GO HMMMMMMM...don't you wonder why someone would fling their shoes on a telephone wire? I do.

5. "ME" TIME...spending time watching for my sweet Rufous hummingbirds (with my camera)...my first sighting this Spring was on Friday...absolutely 'me' time!

Joining Ashley over at Ramblings and Photos for her Scavenger Hunt Sunday - 5 different prompts, your own interpretations!

I loved all your photos! Great hummingbird shot and yes why do people put shoes on wires like that?? Strange! Great captures!!

Oh lol and I forgot to say how much I really loved the group of 3 photos! Very creative!

Scrolling through your images had me loving each one more and more. Your kitchen shot is beautiful but I really love your group of 3 image. The Hmmm shot was also great, love your edits!

Christine said...

Love, love, love your hmmmm shot!

Buckeroomama said...

I love the light in your kitchen and that wall with your children's lovely art. :) I love that your Hmmm shot, too. All electric cables here are underground, so we don't get any of that kind of fun. :)

Ashley Sisk said...

These are beautiful Julie - love your kitchen and things that make you go hmmm shots. Great job!

Beautiful shots! Love the kitchen and hummingbird shots!

Stefanie Brown said...

Wow, I love your "Humm" shot. It's awesome! All you shots are fantastic. I really enjoyed viewing them!

kbreints said...

I love the shoe shot-- but the reason they do that is to mark gang territory. Not sure how I know that...

Marla said...

Great shots. My favorite is the shoe one... but I heard that's a drug sign. Maybe I learned it on television? I can't really remember.

All stunning photos! I love the kitchen one :D

Rosie@leavesnbloom said...

Fabulous photos - I love those shoes hanging like that and the added texture along with your group of 3 and that awesome hummingbird.

Anonymous said...

Great job Julie! They are all creative but of course the Hummingbird is my favourite (still totally jealous that I haven't seen any yet) and you look GORGEOUS in your kitchen shot! Jane

deb duty said...

They are all such wonderful shots! Love all the artwork in your kitchen! Your hummingbird shot is beautiful. I hope I get to see some soon.

Sarah Halstead said...

Great photos. Love your group of 3 photos. They are all great though.

Henrietta said...

Great picks, specially the first one. I love your kitchen wall with all those drawings, it is so colorful.

Kimberly said...

Wow! Fabulous photos this week! Love the "me time" and the groups of three! Awesome!

Those shoes do make you go hmmm. We saw a pair of pants on the road the other day ... that also made us wonder. :)

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Chelsea said...

Wow love all of them! That roof is amazing...love that for your group of 3 shot you did it in so many ways, a triptych, numerical, and groups of 3. Very creative! In the kitchen shot I love that it is mostly white, except for the pop of color in the art and the flowers. I always wonder why and how those shoes get up there! And wow what a gorgeous hummingbird shot!

Mad Mind said...

I love the shoes. I always wonder why people do that though.

Excellent job! Love each & every one- but that decay one just makes me want to know more. I also love the bird- great job freezing him in place

Photogal said...

Stunning! I really like your photo style and eye for great shots.

Kat Sloma said...

We have the shoe thing going on in my hometown... I think it has to do with inebriated college students but don't know for sure. :) Your group of three shots are fabulous - love your "threes within a three" take on the theme. Thanks so much for linking in to Exploring with a Camera.

Kathleen said...

Wow - great job capturing that bird!! They're so quick! LOVE your decay! And your Hmmm shot - so funny. I often wonder about that. And why is it that no matter where you travel you see that same thing - the shoes on the wire? Some universal thing, I guess.

Linda R. said...

Truly amazing shots.. Everyone of them.. I just adore all your kids art work in you kitchen. That is so cool.. Hope you are enjoying your day..

Alden said...

beautiful shots... the one from your kitchen made me smile!

Cecily R said...

LOVE your Hmmmm shot. Such a cool picture and the processing is perfect. And I LOVE the wall art on your kitchen shot. Love love love all the color it gives to the room!

Abby K said...

You always to so good on the hunt!! I love the hummingbird!!

Chrystal said...

Great photos. I have often wondered about shoes on the telephone wire also.

t @ emmons-blessings said...

AWE!! Your photos are so beautiful. It is true about the shoes... Drugs, indeed. Usually a pick up/drop off spot. {I worked with teens in gangs/drug pushers} (Usually if law enforcement knows about them they will have them removed.) Scrabble is my favorite!!(love it for the ipad!! but nothing beats the old wooden tiles!)

Ashley said...

ahhh your shoe shot is awesome!!!! :) I love it!! and yes- it definitely makes me go "hmmm" to think about why someone would throw their shoes up there ;) Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Melissa said...

Jules, you nailed the prompts this week, they are all awesome! The shoe shot is my favorite and I love how you edited it.

allison said...

all of your shots are amazing - you have some amazing patience and great hand eye coordination to get a shot of a humming bird like that - wow!

Our Typical Life said...

Never understood about the shoes. :)

Michelle said...

Great photos! Love your "Me" time and kitchen.

Michelle said...

Those are great but I love the decay! I love all the editing you did, too.

Becky said...

Love the shots! I do wonder why people fling their shoes over the telephone line!!! I lve the hummingbird shot. Your kids art wall is neat. I think I may steal that idea for Emma some day in the future!

The Wishful Lamb said...

I love your decay and hmmm shot:P

zippitypow said...

Such beautiful shots! I love how your images work together as a collection...

Funkytime said...

hard to chose which one i like best! they are all really beautiful!

Jessaca said...

Love your Kitchen shot. I love all the art work from your kids on the wall. What a neat idea!!! I am going to use it. hehe
That decay shot is another great photo.
Have a good one!!!

Dorian Susan said...

Love the groups of 3's..very clever and well done. I also love that shot of the sneakers over the wire-I totally don't get that. Someone showed me a photo of a "sneaker tree" out in the middle of nowhere in the west-covered in paired discarded sneakers. Very hmmmmm.

Tara said...

these are beautiful shots! I love them! I love the picture of the kitchen!!

Tara said...

These are awesome shots, I love your kids art wall...too cute. The shoes are so odd and I love the hummingbird!

Nat said...

love them all but my favorite is the hummingbird shot! beautiful and thanks for stopping by my blog.

Paige said...

Julie!!!! This collection of shots is fantabulous!!! I love the decaying barn with it's bright green moss!! And you look so pretty in that shot!!! Did you make your necklace? cuz it's fab!!! wow

Serline said...

Love the "Me" Time shot... so envious!

Abi said...

Oh, yes... that roof needs some repair ;)
Those shoes are so awesome...
And the hummingbird is gorgeous! I've tried to photograph the hummingbirds in my yard many times but nothing this breathtaking!

Jennifer said...

Great shots! I have seen the shoe thing done before but never that many at once! I heard once that shoes over hydro wires means there's a drug dealer in town but I have absolutely no idea if that's true or not as I don't hang in those circles. LOL
