Scavenger Hunt Sunday

This week's prompts for Scavenger Hunt Sunday are water, petal, fresh, eight, and calm. Please click on the button at the bottom of this post to see more great photos, or to see what next week's prompts are...join in! It's a lot of fun. :)

1. Petal. This was a Hilton Head flower - is this a hibiscus?? Whatever it is, it's beautiful! I'd love to have one of these in my own yard...

2. Calm. The sunsets have been beautiful this past week. This was right outside my house, looking down the street. So serene, and definitely calm! *happy sigh*

3. Fresh. Freshly sliced kiwi...anymore, I find myself photographing my food before I eat it. :)

4. Eight. This was a tough one. I tried several versions of eight, but this is the one I finally chose. These stones and shells are some we collected during a beach stay in Rehoboth, Delaware. I keep them in a glass jar on my window sill because they bring back such fond memories.

5. Water. I took a walk down by our community lake this week. This is one of the shots I got...I liked that this one had the clouds reflected in the water.

  15. A lovely set, Sherri. I esp. like the last one, so serene, so calm... would love to walk there for a while. Happy new week!

  16. I had no idea what that flower was. I woulda said a Yellow-Eyed Susan, maybe :0

    I, too, especially liked the last photo. Reminded me of a vintage, slightly faded postcard.

  17. Beautiful - love the processing on calm and your last shot.

  18. That is a hibiscus and a common easy to grow one at that,shove a cutting in the ground and off she will go!If these were taken with your Panasonic Lumix DMC LX5 I am definately getting one of those!
