Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Scavenger Hunt Sunday: (click on the button at the bottom of this post to see more participants, or to join up and participate yourself!)

1. Whimsy. I was at the mall earlier this week and saw the Easter Bunny area all set up for the kids. I was walking behind it from the rear and saw this enormous tea cup...the whimsy of it was larger than life! I took this with my iphone, so the quality is not ideal.

2. Create. My sole (soul?) creative outlet lately is photography and photo editing, so I thought that would be my perfect representation for this word. This is a charcoal sketch I did of a woman's face...I took a photo of it so I could upload it into PSE. I then added layers, text, and a public domain 'city seascape' to add interest to the background.
Not all those who wander

3. Dust. I was so clueless about what to do with this prompt, until I took a photo of our tiny, blooming dogwood tree yesterday. We just planted it last year, so I'm thrilled to see it looking so healthy. There was a dusting of pollen across its petals...phew! Prompt problem solved.

4. Seed or Sprout. This was a tiny patch of sprouting greenery sprawling itself over a log in the park last week. The flowers are tiny - not even the size of a pea. I zoomed in real close with my camera.

5. Swing or Drop. This is the only photo from my archives this week. I had taken this photo last fall. Our daughter is all grown up now, so our swing set in the back yard hadn't been touched in years, except for maybe a bird to perch on. She was a good sport and braved the spider webs to pose for this one!
