Scavenger Hunt - Week #9

  I had to dig a little outside the box for this one!  
The next image is an oldie, but it really works well for this assignment!

Scavenger Hunt – Week #8


When our leader posted this week’s Scavenger List, my heart sank.  Where was I going to find that?  I pondered this question for a few days before an idea emerged.

Figuring the most likely place to find spirits would be in a graveyard, I headed to the nearest cemetery and prepared to catch my ghost.  Unsure of what I’d see, I certainly wasn’t expecting this frightful sight!
Scared, I scurried off, only to fall into a hole camouflaged by tall grass.  “Ouch!”  Twisting my foot, I cried out in pain as I sank to the ground.   I was helpless and at the mercy of the spirit world!

Thankfully, the next ghostly soul who appeared was angelic in nature and allayed my fears.

Scavenger Hunt – Week #7

This week we had to hunt for “consumption – to consume.”

 The first thing that came to my mind was something that is used up by eating or drinking.  That’s me…always thinking of my next meal!

Scavenger Hunt – Week #6

This week’s assignment was to hunt for “something that has had a better day.”  Our scavenger hunt leader, being the humorous guy he is, couldn’t resist adding “But no self-portraits!”  Very funny.

Driving through Gloversville, I hunted for the perfect subject.  Bingo!  I went back a few days later to capture my subject in the late evening light.

 Just as I began shooting, some guy came along and talked my ear off about this old house.  He told me it’s slated to be demolished (what a shame, he said!), and went on to point out all the beautiful features of the Victorian architecture. 

Whipping out his smart phone, he rambled on about his love of Victorian style homes as he pulled up a photo to share with me.  The image was of a beautiful Victorian dwelling that’s for sale in a nearby city.  The price?  Only $1.6 million, he said…and definitely in much better shape than this old house!
