Scavenger Hunt Sunday – October 24, 2010

It’s Scavenger Hunt Sunday and I am so excited to be participating again!  I haven’t been feeling that great with the end of my treatment upon me (a 6 month regime you can read more about on my “The Toughest Marathon of My Life” blog – if you haven’t been there lately I just posted a great story of the marathon).  I have used photography as one of my things to focus on for healing and it really has benefited me greatly.  SO this week – I am back – after running the Chicago Marathon on 10-10-10 – I can finally feel like life is back to normal.  At least for now.  πŸ™‚  

Here are my interpretations for this week.  Please leave a comment below if you have stopped by!  Thanks!

The 5 Senses
My interpretive choice for this category is our dog Oakley.   His sight is amazing as he “sees” those deer from a mile away before he goes running in the woods!  Oakley hears the UPS man from miles away – ok only kidding – but he barks when the delivery guys come up the driveway – it is his job!  Taste?  Oakley loves FOOD so obviously has a keen sense of taste! πŸ™‚  Touch – although Oakley doesn’t have hands to touch, we love him so much we pet him and hug him so much, he depends on our touch.  Smell – let’s go back to the food again….. plus the fact that dogs when they are “checking you out” and meeting another dog for the first time discover eachother by smell.   SO with all that here are my latest favorites of my #1 pet model = 

“Toryfield’s Master Oakley”   i have been searching for photo contests for this first photo as it is one of the best photos I have taken of him and really would love to see it published.  Let me know if you have any ideas.

Child/Children (October 2010 item)
This was tough with all the great children photos I have in my recent photography – so I am sharing more than one here.  Enjoy!  Schuyler’s ninth birthday was a costume party and it was so great to get these kids in action on the zip line and in costume!  Here is a LINK to Schuyler’s party if you want to see more – there were some AMAZING photos even though the time was short before the nightfall.
Chris – Dressed in a 1950’s suit – he just looked amazing and I captured his look, with a great smile.  He is one of Schuyler’s best friends, soccer team mates and we really think he is such a great kid! 
Conner – He is so full of personality and energy – – this photo really shows his spirit!

Oliver – Such a photogenic child.  My best friend Sue Ann made the trip from Connecticut and it is always such a joy to photograph Oliver.  This one was my favorite of the night.  His green jacket and the green grass background  really is his color!  

Dining(October 2010 item)
Celebrating our 3rd wedding anniversary!  πŸ™‚ We had such an amazing time.  We have worn our “wedding clothes 4 times now – on the honeymoon, our 2nd anniversary and then last night on our third anniversary!  I am more in love now than ever and have married the most amazing man!  πŸ™‚  Here is a shot of the martini list!  The below is a bonus photo (getting ready for dining) where I used my timer and had to go back and forth in those darn heels to get the perfect shot!  : )

Schuyler’s ninth birthday celebration — the rock was the hit of the party with our zip line starting from the top!  I love the night sky in this end of day party photo!  I will try not to have a party at this time period again because I really have a hard time with the lighting of photos when the sun is going down.  πŸ™  SO these are the last photos of the night!

Foliage is at its peak with the colors just “bursting”!  I love the reflection in this pond photo with the red leaves framing the edge.  πŸ™‚ The below photo is on my running loop and I am constantly trying to figure out how to properly frame the beauty.  The refection photos are my favorite because you get double the color!
