October Photo Hunt!

It has been a  wonderful challenge in my photography skills to take part in the Scavenger Hunts online and reach to take the photos needed for each challenge. I had a tough month getting out there due to the end of my cancer treatment, but got some great photos to enter and am so happy to share my favorites all at once with all of you. Hope you like my photos – please leave a comment if you stop by!

  1. In Disguise


  1. Fall Colors

A Jack O’lantern

A Shot from the Ground
We had the pleasure of visiting our friends Ed & Kaz in Florence, MA…. as we were chatting I was drawn to the church reaching up high to the sky.  The whiteness against the blue sky was amazing and I got this amazing shot that fits perfectly for this category. 
  • a Landscape
  • There is nothing more beautiful than the fall colors in the landscape of your own backyard.
  • a Fall Tradition
  • Pumpkins, Apples all mixed together to create a Pumpkin Applesauce Bread – a masterpiece in the kitchen – when creating this bread you can smell the aromas of fall — cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg & ginger.  🙂
    1. Books
    2. This book was a gift from a dear friend Jean Zahn from Virginia Beach, Virginia.   I have had the honor to  have meet her in her volunteer role working with the American Cancer Society.  Her husband Terry Zahn was the producer and narrator for the first ever Relay For Life video that is now in more than 5000 communities nationwide.  He is known as the “Voice of Relay”.  Her love and support of me as a long distance Facebook / Farmville friend has been amazing through my diagnosis and treatment.  The book “What to Eat during Cancer Treatment” is a best seller in the ACS bookstore and really has been an amazing resource for me when completely frustrated not knowing what to eat during different stages of symptoms and more.  Here is the collection of all the goodies and inspirational card she sent to me and it truly brightened my heart as well as my day!  🙂
