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! ūüôā

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.

June Photo Hunt Wrap-Up

Can you believe it is the last day of June already?¬† Time flies when the beautiful weather and days when the sun doesn’t set until 8:30pm are here.¬† It is also the perfect day to present¬† a wrap of the June Photo Hunt results.¬† There are lots of links and pingbacks in the comments section of my original post, so I am here to sort them out for you.¬† I hope you will have the chance to check them all out and encourage the participants with a comment.¬†¬† We all love comments, right?

First in with her submission this time around was Dawn.  Dawn had the fantastic idea to go to the zoo to complete her hunt.  She found some fun ideas and the bird with the bad hair day gave me a chuckle.

Next was Nye, who also did some travelling around her local area to get her shots.  She included that familiar but curious critter, the hummingbird moth and took a drive with her family to find her cow pictures.

Carol was the third with her photo hunt post.   I loved her yellow Western Tanager in an unusual fountain, and her cat has one of the funniest faces out there!

Deb, who just started blogging in May, had a very enthusiastic blog post featuring her photos.¬† Her scarlet ibis was one of the most fiery colored birds I’ve ever seen and her interpretation of the “grad” photo was truly unique.¬† I’m glad you enjoy the photo hunts so much, Deb!

My sister Jennifer actually posted her shots with time to spare this time around ( she commented to me on Twitter that we were “syncro-blogging”; we must have been writing and posting our photo hunts at the same time!)¬† Although not snarky like the last time, she still brings her great sense of humor to some of her shots including the “grad” and the “colorful bird.”

I always look forward to Brian’s¬†brilliant sense of humor and beautiful photography, and his collection for the hunt is no exception.¬† His bird shots are stunning and there is no lack of laughter in many of the other shots.¬† Be sure to read about what happened when he was taking the cow picture!

Dear friend Renae joined in with her first photo hunt collection on Flickr.  She has a really sweet collection of pictures and wins a million bonus points for having a picture of a BABY Oreo cow!

Scott, one of my inspirations for offering the every-other-month photo hunt, posted a great collection of pictures.¬† He has become a really amazing wildlife photographer – I just love his oystercatcher.¬† He’s got just about the biggest funny face you’ll ever see too!

Sliding in last minute with her photo hunt is Robin.¬† With her previous commitments, I’m really glad she decided to join in; Robin is in the midst of a 365 day commitment to going outside every day for at least 30 minutes AND she is doing WordPress’s Post-A-Day 2011.¬† I just love her colorful bird and her butterfly, and her cow shot is definitely unexpected.

In case you missed it, my June Photo Hunt shots were posted here. They also make up the collages (courtesy of Picnik.com) at the top of this post.

Have fun checking out everyone’s photo hunt shots!¬† And let me know in the comments if you’d like to do this again in August!

Picture Fall Mosiac

Today is the last day of the Picture Fall online photography class.¬† We were instructed to focus on something that expresses our gratitude today.¬† I am most grateful for my wonderful family, but I already shared them with you on Day 24, and here and there at other times throughout the month.¬† I’m also grateful for this blogging community that has grown up around several blogs.¬† I love the support and comments I’ve gotten as I’ve navigated the waters of photography, so a collage of the shots I’ve taken this month seemed apropos.

I hope you are having a great Halloween with lots of treats and no nasty tricks! ūüôā
