scavenger hunt ii

walking empty streets

I wasn’t literally on a street when I took this picture, but “empty streets” makes me think “deserted,” so this picture seems to fit.river2

repeating patterns

My just-out-of-ninth-grade sister might be able to tell you the scientific categorization for the pattern of veins in this petal. If I remembered anything from biology in ninth grade, I could too…


This was hard! Floors really aren’t that inspiring, but it makes the scavenger hunt more challenging—and thus, of course, more fun. I decided to use an outdoor floor to get some texture. :)

then and now

Top: taken May 2010 on all auto settings and lightly edited. Bottom: taken May 2011 on mostly manual settings and lightly edited. (Had to take these out of my archives, obviously!)


Okay, I have to admit… *cringe*… that this photo is also from my archives. I know, lame! I won’t even start with excuses. I just hope you like it. :)
So in spite of the Return to the Archives, did I do okay?

A few more bright and cheery pictures for you:
Last but not least, I have a request to make of you. As you might be able to tell if you’ve been around my blog long, I’m not really a heavy photo editor. I enhance, but in most cases I don’t do drastic manipulations. If I do, I’m never really sure about the result. So I’m going to post a SOOC shot and two edits (which aren’t exactly drastic, but kind of drastic from my point of view), and if you could tell me your thoughts, I would be ever so obliged!

Edit #1

Edit #2
Thank you, thank you, thank you! :)


  1. Neat shots, I like your "repeating patterns" photo the best. :)

    Your editing and SOOC pictures are very pretty, but I think the editing part makes the photo feel more "unique". ;)

  2. That butterfly is amazing!
    I love your SOOC shot, epecially because I think I like it without the crop, but the colors in Edit #1 are lovely :)

  3. What a beautiful set - I especially love your fingertips shot!
