Sweetsauer Photo Hunt #1


Okay - time has come for the Sweetsauer Photo Hunt unveiling! :) Here is my accomplishment of the list of 26:

1. cool or interesting architecture ~
a Sikh Temple in my City
2. sign of spring ~ lots of yard work in our backyard by the handy and
strong hands of my Husband (and help of our three kids)
3. something musical ~ my wind chimes4. something sweet ~ homemade cinnamon buns5. something metallic ~ my late-Grandfather's Metals of Honor
from World War II proudly hung on his jacket
6. a landscape ~looking over the Pacific Ocean at Vancouver Island7. an interesting doorway ~ interesting really isn't what I'd call it, but it's the best I found, I'd say this is a gorgeous doorway on a very expensive home8. a reflection ~ our Canadian Goose9. a cemetery ~last week we celebrated the long-life of my
Grandfather and said goodbye here
10. a pair of shoes ~11. a body of water ~ the Pacific Ocean:12. a drink ~ my breakfast smoothie consisting of frozen
blueberries, flavoured tofu & banana12. a mosaic or mural ~ this is on a wall on the back of a hotel we stayed in last week... it's continuous across the parking lot; I'll share the whole thing:14. rain ~ we've had an unusual little amount of rain this month...when it did rain I must've forgotten "rain" was on the photo hunt list! So, this is from October but it's a shot I really like: 15. a Classic Car 1970 or older ~ I didn't see one in person, but could have since a Car Show was in town... this is from the pullout advertisement in our Newspaper, haha: 16. a work of art ~ this happened to be under my seat on the log I was
perched on last week on the beach - unknown artist
17. a church ~ 18. a statue ~ this is in our little downtown area of my City, not sure
what it's meaning is, but it's fun!
19. an interesting sky ~ Ring Around the Sun20. something in motion ~ my son was playing with his dump truck
down this ramp we made off of our deck onto our lawn
21. Lights at Night ~ I love the shadows this light in my staircase gives off 22. a silhouette ~ 23. something historical (pre-1900) ~ this location, as noted in the 2nd photo, marks a special spot of Captain George Vancouver in 179224. a shot from an unusual perspective ~ there was a detorted plastic mirror for the kids at the playground under the slide - I looked in it and took this shot looking back out 25. Flowers ~ newly blooming Rhododendron bush in my backyard26. self-portrait ~ in that same detorted mirror - a picture of moi!

Nice job, Jen! It looks incredibly beautiful where you are (Vancouver, BC?)

Great photos. Very creative. Especially the Classic Car, ha ha ha! Why didn't I think of that? I was lucky enough to have in-laws that own a few classic cars.

Pink Monkey said...

Oh, I forgot to ask...How did you get that font on your blog?

Jan said...

Great job for this challenge. I love the photos you chose to use.

Jen said...

Pink Monkey ~ I went to www.thecutestblogontheblock.com and then found how to change font there... there were only 4 fonts to select from though.

Can't wait til June for the next challenge!

Jen said...

Kristi - yes, Vancouver BC - Lower Mainland area. :) And yes, it is beautiful! You should plan a trip here! The Olympics will be here next Winter - 2010. ;)
