Scavenger Hunt September 10, 2011

Here are my this week’s 
Scavenger Hunt selections!  

I know this is a bokeh photo – but the lighting from the window in the background with the forefront of the conference really gives this photo a unique look to share.  I promise to practice bokeh later to enter this section, but I really loved the conference in Albany — this is Stephen Frost — their rendition of a TV late night host — he was amazing.  I love the anticipation, the star quality look on this photo as he waits for his introduction to the stage.  Quite a moment.  An amazing conference celebrating the top communities, Relay events in NY & NJ.   🙂 

Process of Elimination,

Each region had a “mascot of sorts” that got all dressed up and had a sign “Relay Like This” to go in theme with the social networking focus of the conference.  Lots of purple, sequins, a cupcake, Purple Kool Aid and a giant Luminaria too.  So fun!  It was a process of elimination to pick the best one — a tough job for the judges indeed!  How fun!  You can see HOW FUN this is by the look in their eyes as they jump and dance to the music.  🙂  

See the Remember flag in the back?  Remembering those we lost at Relay is an important part of our event.  Celebrating Life & Survivors in the community, Remembering those we have lost and Fighting Back against cancer is the focus of our more than 5100 Relay For Life events nationwide.  This Relay winner is strutting her stuff across the stage sharing the success of the community she lives in!  Love the Relay socks!  🙂

Stretching the interpretation here too.  This is Schuyler’s statue pose.  Focus in the soccer game on the ball and what is to come next.  Taking a break from the spurts of running.  My beautiful boy! He loves being a “Stinger” and this team really has the intensity to make it happen! 

Flying High
Another soccer shot from today’s game (We lost both games this weekend – but the boys really played hard!  A bit of a disappointment for the beginning of the season, but the talent these boys have is really evident!)  This is Evan, flying high to head the soccer ball, Schuyler and the other team positioning in the background makes for a really cool shot!  Posted another shot below my first pic — I couldn’t just choose one so I posted both FLYING shots — love how he is flying right through the defenders to get to the ball!  🙂

I hope you like my selections.  It was a fun weekend of photography for me!  Enjoy and PLEASE leave a comment if you stop by.  I love all your comments!  🙂
