June Photo Hunt Thingy

I noticed when I was popping around visiting many of your blogs this month that I often had a hard time deciding what name with which to reference the June photo hunt. Was it a photo hunt? Sure. Was it my creation? No. The fine ladies over at iHeartFaces call it a “challenge”. I took their challenge and tweaked it to my liking. I ended up calling it a photo “thingy” or some variation of that when I left a comment on some of your blogs – hence the title of my blog post showcasing what I ended up doing with the iHeartFaces photo challenge.

These photos are in no particular order as far as the way the dates were listed out in the original challenge. I plopped photos that I liked together in collages. Yup, that’s my technical term: “plopped”.

I thought this last one could use a little explaining. The top left is Meghan getting a hug from her high school principal during the graduation ceremony – sorry for the blurriness, all my photos from that night are pretty blurry. The bottom photo is the hall where we had Meghan’s graduation party. The upper right is one of the well-deserved beverages I had after setting up that party! 🙂

I ended up doing 20 of the original 30 prompts (21 if you include the “selfie” in the post when I announced this photo thingy). How did you do? I’m looking forward to coming around and seeing your photos.

  1. Good job, Karma! I was kinda surprised you had time to do a photo hunt. You’ve been so busy recently!

    • Thanks Kathy. That was the nice thing about this photo hunt – I just shot pictures for random prompts whenever I had down time, and a few of the photos actually worked out because I was so busy! (see the last collage for example!) Yesterday afternoon, when all the busy stuff was done, I picked through the pictures I had taken this month and put the collages together.

    • I was busy but like I said up above to Kathy, sometimes the busy helped get a few shots done! During down time I took pictures here and there, and then yesterday afternoon when all the busy times were done, I picked through the shots I took this month and put the collages together. I’ll be over to check yours out soon Mike!

  4. I love the June photos of yours. I love the summer time, fresh, first thing, natural light, bubbles. A hug from a principal – oh, so nostalgic to me. All in all, wonderful job Karma, We have such beautiful things around us, you just proved!

  5. Fabulous, Karma! I see we both went with potent potables for our beverages. lol! Any plans for a hunt in August? 🙂

    • Thanks Robin. In addition to our potent potables, we both did the whiteboard for “reminder” – I could have doubled that one up on “handwriting” too, like you did. I don’t know what I’d do without my whiteboard – I’d forget so many things! And even though you chose a different photo to represent it, we both had the thought of red berries for “summertime”.
      As for August, I will see if I find any inspiration for one. That seems to be how the photo hunts come up these days – when inspiratioin strikes. Only a few of us participated this time around, however, despite what seemed like a good amount of interest at the original post.
