Scavenger Hunt Sunday: space & ‘scapes

Totally skipped last week’s hunt — so many things going on and so little motivation to make it happen. For shame my morose mood.

The Color Wheel: Complementary/Triadic Color (Exploring with a Camera prompt)
Kat‘s second installment of color talks about finding aesthetically pleasing combinations in our world. She shared the following three visuals:
I’ve been having a bit of fun enjoying the lush colors of the season and decided to share a few of my “natural” finds.

Black and White (Paper Heart Camera prompt)
door diva
An abandoned post office served as a great industrial backdrop for my little diva’s boot shoot. Yes, she insisted on documenting her first “real choice” in shoe-wardrobe. And yes, she really would’ve rather had the pair with the two and a half inch heel and the furry folded cuff. And yes, those are those dreaded leggings that she so despises but that were required should she wear a skirt like the one she picked out.

Oh, and just to prove that she does, sometimes, simply return to the kid of 8y9m she is most often when the camera is not focused on her, here’s baby girl simply being."Chi v:8y9m"
Foodcrab tray display
I probably should’ve ventured into the restaurant to capture this display… but it was late and dark and I really didn’t think the Maître d would’ve appreciated me intruding on dinner service just for a picture. I do sort of like the grainy quality of the image, though.
Blank Space
I admit that I have no idea what “blank space” is supposed to mean here… so I’m taking creative liberty.
space to rest I love the way my eyes rest in the dark spaces of the flower’s seeds and how it is a solitary, lonely bloom surrounded by empty space.
hornet's space
And this one? Well, wouldn’t you give him all the space he needs (before spraying him to oblivion with a long range poison, of course)?

  1. What wonderful shots. I love your black and white shot and that last one is awesome. Gorgeous!

  2. Wow! Love the landscape and have to say you have mastered the macro! But your images of your daughter really won me over-she is OWNING those shoes! Sweet portraits of her.

    PS-cant believe you were that close to the Yellow Jacket…makes me want my epipen 😉

    • that darn Macro makes me fearless and foolish. There’s a nest of jackets under the fire hydrant near my parents’ home. A thriving community so busy doing whatever it is that they do that though one or two looked at me, none bothered to venture away from their activities.

  17. What stunning images!! Your macros are so gorgeous! And I totally relate to your description of your daughter! I have a ten year old and they sound like “two peas in a pod”. Seriously – we have had discussions about not getting the boots with the heels and the furry cuffs (why do they make children’s shoes with heels anyway?) and I have had to make her wear leggings with skirts!!!
