365*-147 - Assignment; Scavenger Hunt

Tracy challenged (yes, it was more of a challenge than an assignment for me) us to a special assignment this week – a Scavenger Hunt with our camera! Prizes are to be awarded for the first published; which I did not win, and another for most creative; still in the running, I hope!!!

I am supplying an information sheet to explain my captures!!

1. A person wearing a uniform/work clothes (DH at work)
2. The contents of a women’s handbag (I travel very light and precise! )
3. A homemade dessert (Ice Cream Cupcake Cookies)
4. A tire track/tread mark (Thank you big red fire truck)
5. A 100 dollar bill OR a two dollar bill (Tried my creative side)
6. A 100 watt light bulb (Our blue carriage lights showing support for law enforcement)
7. A letter with a canceled stamp on it (Wedding invite from a very special friend)
8. A person sleeping (Seriously, my co-worker naps at work during lunch!)
9. A birthday card with balloons on the front (Tough to find, bought it and set up a background)
10. An outdoor clock (THE only one in town!!!)
11. A tree standing alone (Not only alone, but naked!!!)
12. A street named after a person (VIP in town and also to entertain my kids)
13. The moon (FINALLY!!! )
14. 5 flowers of different colors in one photo (Bought flowers for MYSELF! Hehehe...)
15. A melting candle (Tough one, tried to stay still!)
16. A grocery cart (I LOVE this shot, I pulled in to the parking space and there this was! )
17. An Open OR Closed store sign (Another very tough shot; I had to stand on the pillar to help with reflection! )
18. A library book (Another shot at creativity & prop set-up)
19. A souvenir key ring (Our very FIRST vacation as husband/wife - at least 30 years old)
20. A weed (What can you say about a weed??)
