I'm back again for the Scavenger Hunt.   I'm going to apologize in advance for all these photos.  I really do intend on just doing one picture per category.  Simple and to the point. 
Yet, I always end up with a big mess of photos.




I promise, we got that face all cleaned up after I put the camera down and focused on the bathing part!

I really had a hard time with this prompt.  Initially, I took this photo.  I though it was... meh.
Then I thought this one might work.  I stopped and took this on a foggy morning.  But, they're more of a group than alone, so I went back to the drawing board. 
I spotted some ice fisherman..... out there on the ice alone. 
I don't know.  It kinda works, right? 
Then, just this morning, we woke up to glorious sunshine, and a dusting of snow.  I loved how this lone tree looked as a reflection.   Hopefully at least one of these work!

I spotted a rusty old snow plow the other day.  I loved that some love bird carved D+M on it.  How cute is that?  Okay, so it's on a rusty, dirty snow plow, but still.

We had an "artificial" birthday celebration last weekend because Mom didn't get a single photo of the real deal. 



I was a bit MACRO happy here.

That's all I got.  I promise, NO MORE photos.  For a day or two, anyway.  

Now go on over to Ashley's to check out more Scavenger Hunt goodies:

Those patterns are awesome! And the ice fishing shacks are all over the place here. I live on the Upper Mississippi and you can't miss them.

Love those repeating lines! You crack me up with stand alone, but the last one is perfect. Shadows, snow, what's not to like? Have a fabulous week!

Dorian Susan said...

I can see why you HAD to include so many. I mean, how could you not? Love that first bath shot. Great find on the ice fisherman. I too would go for that rusty old plow. Repeating patterns...ooh la lah. Have a great week Brooke.

Stasha said...

You are a pattern queen and mommy to the boys with gorgeous smiles! Happy artificial B'day :)

Your interpretations are fabulous, and your photographs are stunning. I am in love with the shot of your son in the candle light. Lovely.

Wow, those patterns are awesome. I like the cluster of trees for the stand alone, too.

STAND ALONE = my fave! the red fishing shed (don't know if you call them that?) on the lake is totally cool.

Lori said...

Love the old snow plow with initials carved in it!

Michelle Renee said...

I love your repeating patterns. And that ice fisherman shot makes me miss home. Here in NC, we haven't even had a flake yet.

Gina Kleinworth said...

Well done- that ice fishinh is something that really astounds me.

Jess said...

Great job Brooke, you always knock the ball out of the park. Love the dried grass "repeating pattern" photo.

Ida said...

Well done!
Sometimes it is hard to settle on just "one" photo for the prompts.
Your Smile subject - totally adorable.
I liked the lone shadow of the tree for your Stand Alone the best.
Also like your Repeating Patterns and chuckled over the Artificial Birthday as I've had to do the same thing when unable to capture the real moment.

Megan said...

I love bathtub photo shoots! its the only time you can corral them into a small space long enough to take pictures :) hahaha!

and the last stand alone one, with the snow and the tree, i gorgeous. Although, the ice house is great too :)
