Scavenger Hunt Sunday

1. Food

My famous Capresse Italian Salad – layered with fresh tomatoes, fresh mozzarella, crushed fresh garlic, red onion, fresh basil from the garden and drizzled with EVOO and the finest aged balsamic vinaigrette.  I love sharing my recipes and taking pictures of my creations.  I made this fabulous dinner with sole, garlic bread, this capresse salad and some Pellegrino for my love last night and this salad was just too gorgeous not to shoot!

2. Portrait

This is from a wedding shoot I did in March from my archives.  I haven’t done portraits lately although I hope to make some time soon as it is so much fun to shoot beautiful photos of families.   I have done some American Cancer Society fundraising with portraits for my marathon efforts, and hope to do some more in the fall as that is the best time to get the colors and just in time for Christmas!  This is the Marcotte Family in Sturbridge, MA.  I was so happy to be asked to shoot their wedding and got some beautiful portraits that day!

3.  Chair

A handmade chair in our living room by the beautiful window.  This chair is a piece of art and so very comfortable to sit in too.  The rocking stool by its side is one of my Dad’s that I hold dear to my heart.  This is a very comforting place in our home.  What amazing place to sit in peace with the beauty of the outdoors right outside the window.

4. Game

The rope swing was just so much fun last weekend—- I had to share this one of Stephen hanging on right before the lift up!  Although it is more of a “play” shot — I didn’t get much gaming in this past week and truly loved taking these shots! –>

Fun and games at the Relay For Life Water Balloon Toss — I got some fun shots of this activity, but the flash and colors didn’t quite work with the timing of the day.  Love the faces of these final competitors with the concentration and competition in their faces.  So much fun to get photos of the healthy youth in our neighborhood!  Had to share this one from my archives.

5. Miniature

When Schuyler was growing up he just loved horses, probably until about age 4-5.  This past month he decided to clean off his shelf of the Breyer collection and put his own collectibles of DS games and legos there instead.  I think the horse collection (probably more than 50 horses) is for me more than him, but we boxed them up sadly and now they are on a closet shelf in the spare room.  I have the miniatures out on my desk as they are so beautiful.  It was one birthday that I put them in goodie bags and had quite a few little spares.  🙂  Here they are in all their beauty.  The strength and beauty of a horse is something I truly admire.  I would love to get out to cousin Lynne’s horse shows and get pictures of her daughter.  Maybe that is another junket for this summer?  🙂  

Had to share both of my favorite pictures that I took this morning.  Hope you like them!  My husband Steve liked the silver one the best as it really looks like he is running up the rock!

PLEASE leave a comment if you stop by – I would love to hear from you!
