Scavenger Hunt Sunday ~ 09/25/2011

This week I decided to to my Scavenger Hunt early since I was going to be busy all day on Sunday. I had an interesting and fun time figuring out the Color Wheel (Monocramatic/Analogous) it put a whole different look on things as I was looking for something to complete that prompt. The Scarf prompt is the only one I dug into the archives. I had one of me, from earlier this month with a scarf wrapped around my hair (very Elizabeth Taylor looking .. haha)sitting in a boat, but since I used myself for the low key I didn't want to overdo ME!! LOL

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my interpretations and I look forward to checking out some of the very amazing shots from all of you.

Happy Sunday and hope everyone has a fabulous week!!

Low Key
I decided to do this for two reasons...one because my husband had already sat for me earlier this week for something else and two since I am starting a 30 day challenge and the First Day (today) is Self Portrait!!  :)


The Color Wheel:   Analogous Color
"Analogous colors are colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel. Some examples are green, yellow green, and yellow or red, orange and yellow. Analogous color schemes are often found in nature and are pleasing to the eye."
This stood out to me....I think it works??

Circle

Scarf
Okay so this one I went into the archives. :)

Phone
I can't tell you how hard it was to fine this phone!  You don't realize there aren't that many around until you start looking for one.   I honestly don't remember the last time I used one of these....Can you?? 

Next weeks prompts:
 
  1. Inspired by a Book or Movie
  2. Brown
  3. Hazy 
  4. Coffee or Tea 
  5. Linger



Go check out all the other Fabulous Entries!!

You did an incredible job with your interpretations this week. I'm especially loving your first and last shots. Have a great Sunday.

Tezzie said...

Ohhh...these are wonderful! Your Low Key is beautiful, and great job with the colour wheel exploration :) My fave's gotta be the phone though...I seriously don't think they exist here in Finland any longer. I'm hard pressed trying to think of ever seeing one, at least!

Dorian Susan said...

I'm with Tezzie...that phone shot really calls to me. I think your low key selfie is very well done, and your color wheel example is such a lovely setting. Nice series.

I love your selfie for Low Key. I think that's exactly what Low Key should look like! I'm loving that last shot very much, too. :)

I love the negative space in your circle shot! The B&W was a great idea.

I'm having a before/after editing link up tomorrow and I'd love it if you'd join me!

Wow...these are gorgeous! And, I can't wait until it's Christmas tree picking time. :)

Deanna said...

What a great group of shots...love them all, but my fav has to be the telephones. It's hard to believe that something that was everywhere is now almost vintage. Great selfie too!!

Tara said...
