Scavenger Hunt Sunday | Isolation



{Thank you for all your birthday wishes and greetings to Zoë.  She was over the moon.  I was extremely stressed out getting ready for her party… The party turned out really well and thank goodness my friend’s around to help me take photos during the party.  I’ll share those later this week… and I will be back visiting your blogs again.  I just need to catch my breath and recover from the activities this weekend.}

 

1.  Isolation – This is from a mini shoot I did with my friend’s daughter.  She was looking for her belly button here.

2.  From the Car – The reservoir I pass through several times a week.  I’ve been meaning to get a shot of that bridge, but could never do it while I’m driving.  Today, Chris was driving and traffic was slow enough for me to finally get this shot.

From-the-Car

 

3. Outside -  On the streets of Hong Kong, you’ll see trams with colorful ads.

4.  Poem – “The bud |  stands for all things, |  even for those things that don’t flower,  |  for everything flowers, from within, of self-blessing;   |  though sometimes it is necessary  |  to reteach a thing its loveliness..” ~Saint Francis and the Sow by Galway Kinnell 

Poetry

 

5.  Time -  This week my little girl turned 4.  This is one of her cakes.  She wanted a pink princess cake.  Here is my lame attempt at a fondant cake… sides not evenly spread out and with the greeting and the princess drawn on with the use of markers with edible ink.  Zoë was happy nonetheless.  =)

Wow! Your from the car shot and outside shot are incredible and how precious are baby belly buttons and birthday wishes? To round it out, I do love your flower shot, also! I really like your photography.

Happiest Birthday to Zoe and kudos to you for attempting fondant (I can barely frost a cake with the stuff I buy at the store)!

Love that belly button shot. :)

R Montalban said...

What a pretty cake and a pretty picture to show her celebrating her birthday. Happy belated birthday

Rosie@leavesnbloom said...

Belated birthday greetings to Zoe - she looked lovely as you captured that moment of blowing out the candles. I think you did well with that cake - I've never attempted to baked a cake for any of my boys's birthday's though my eldest baked one for me once.

I love your bus image and how you made it look as if it was in minature - but you're the queen of tilt shift photography anyway LOL :)

That scene overlooking the bridge does look so isolated but very pretty aswell.

Have a great week - at least you'll be able tor relax abit more this week.

Jennifer Bowen said...

I love all your scavenger hunt photos this week, B, but am enamored with the second shot of the bridge. Gorgeous! Glad Zoe had a great birthday celebration. You'll finally be able to breathe easy. =)

tattytiara said...

Oh what a beautiful post. Maybe it's a trick of the mind because it's a birthday shot, but there does seem to be a matured composure to Zoe's expression I don't remember seeing before!

tinajo said...
