July Photo Hunt Blitz!

Well, I couldn’t find one, so I made up my own, and then found another one so I did TWO.  Here’s the first one that I made up, and the other participants are Sherrie, Jules, Leann, and Kelly, who I haven’t checked yet to see if she finished or not.  The second hunt is below this one.  So here goes:

  1. A hat
    1-1 Hat
    Shopping in Pigeon Forge…I tried the hat on her…JUST for this picture!  LOL!

  2. Something Furry
    1-2 Furry
    Snowball up close…

  3. Warm
    1-3 Warm 
    I love hot tubs.  Especially after a chilly walk up the hill from the pool…at 7:30pm.

  4. Space
    1-4 space 
    The sun is one of the easiest pieces of our solar system to catch on camera.  And that’s part of SPACE, right? LOL.

  5. Something Yellow
    1-5 YellowA 1-5 YellowB
    I used this list item to complete one of the photo editing class assignments and for the second one, I got a little corny.  LOL.  Sorry.

  6. Hands
    KC’s hand on the steering wheel.  MMM.

  7. Stripes
    1-7 Stripes
    The Stars & Stripes

  8. Something Triangle Shaped
    1-8 Triangle
    The doors on the building below (#13).  Actually, more like an X, but if you look at the shapes inside the X, they’re triangles. 

  9. Death
    1-9 Death1 1-9 Death2
    Some random graveyard.  I picked it because it was super old and I LOVE super old graveyards.  Yeah, I know.  I’m weird like that.  I think the first picture (the tall headstone in the middle) might have been a confederate soldier (at least, there is a confederate flag right in front of his tombstone).  But I’m not sure because these graves were so old that only a FEW had any writing on them…most of them were just rocks placed in the ground.  Or maybe it was a war graveyard and they didn’t have names for them, they just buried them.  Who knows.  The second picture must have been the rich folks in town that could afford to have a name put on theirs.  Mr. Goode died 100 years before I was born. 

  10. A Lock
    1-10 Lock
    The lock on my trusty camera case

  11. Wrinkle(s)
    1-11 wrinkles
    The leather on the van seat

  12. Something Blue
    The Blue Ridge Mountains

  13. Repetition
    1-13 Repetition
    This building is a STUDY in repeating objects: windows, doors, those three things on the roof…

  14. Something Irritating
    1-14 Irritating 
    Let’s see…let’s go over the things pictured here that irritate me.  Electric lines that interupt perfectly good pictures.  Red lights.  And those little signs that say No Turn On Red.  Those are generally at intersections where you would really LIKE to be able to turn right on red.  UGH.  But I don’t.  USUALLY.  And I especially watch for traffic cameras.  HA.  Had to throw that in.  LOL!

  15. An Emotion
    1-15 Emotion

  16. Tool(s)
    1-16 Tools
    K-man’s tools.  He got these for Christmas 2 years ago and as evidenced by the many dents and nicks, has spent MANY hours playing with them in the last two years. 
    bang bang bang “Can we fix it? YES, WE CAN!” bang bang bang   - K-man

  17. Black & White
    Black (the new van) & White (the old SUV in the background)


Part Deux (this one is from Phun with Photography and the post with the participants who completed it is HERE.)

  1. Disney character
    2-2 Disney 
    Cinderella in front of Melissa & Doug’s Castle.  LOL (I borrowed munchkin toys for this shot.  Seriously…they’re not mine.  hahaha)

  2. someone in uniform
    2-2 Someone in Uniform 
    This was an interesting one to get…she saw me taking her picture and I wasn’t quite sure how to explain what I was doing…so I opted to just keep moving…LOL…then KC called me down and said “HONEY, TELL HER WHY YOU’RE TAKING HER PICTURE!”  So then I had no choice…lol!  She laughed.  But at least she didn’t throw me in cuffs or anything…haha

  3. work of art
    2-3 Work of Art
    The adorable birthday card that Kelbs (a girl at church) made for the munchkin’s birthday.  It pops up.  Totally cute!

  4. A word spelled with unusual lettering
    2-5 Unusual Lettering 
    A word on the back of a truck when we were coming back from Ohio…

  5. a hat
    2-5 Hat
    K-man’s hat hanging on his bunkbed. 

  6. a tree native to your area
    2-6 Native Tree
    I *THINK* this is a River Birch.  If so, then it’s native to our area.  If not, hopefully one of the other trees in the background will qualify.  Otherwise I’ll just have to get an A for Effort.  Haha.

  7. a bug
    2-8 Bug
    My arch-enemy – the June Bug (well, that’s not the correct name for them, but that’s what my momma always called them.  I think they are actually Japanese beetles.  Whatever, I don’t like them.)  My ferns are looking green again, but I spotted another one the other day, so I guess it’s time to Sevin again.  Oh, and this was a GREAT grand-daddy one that we found in the cabin in TN.  HUGE.  That railing it’s perched on is a 2x4. 

  8. library/book
    2-8 LibaryBook
    I like to call this one “Reading – Interupted”  (a scenario that is frequent around here)

  9. sign in more than 2 languages
    2-9 Sign in Different Languages
    Couldn’t find this one, so had to google it and snap a pic of the screen.  LOL!

  10. money/ foreign currency
    2-10 Foreign Currency
    The foreign currency that KC’s Aunt framed for us for Christmas last year.  If you’ve never thought about using foreign money for house decor, it’s veryyy cool looking!

  11. a pool
    2-12 Pool
    This picture makes me laugh because K-man looks to be pointing at his foot…in front of the ONE FOOT sign in the kiddie pool.  LOL!

  12. the colour purple
    2-12 Purple
    On our back deck…not sure what kind of flower.

  13. a window - or looking through a window
    2-13 Window 
    The view from the back window-paned door….

  14. crying
    2-14 crying 
    Puddles of sadness

  15. a fruit
    2-15 Fruit
    Watermelon in our fridge.  This thing has been here about 4 weeks.  Anyone have a clue how long they can sit in the fridge and still be good?

  16. a sport
    2-16 Sport
    Take your pick…the sporting goods aisle in K-mart…haha

  17. sky
    Fireworks in the sky – July 4th

  18. license plate from another State/Province/Country
    Some random tag in Virginia.  THEY weren’t out of state, but I was.  LOL!

  19. Height
    The Longaberger building in Ohio.  HUGE…there is definitely some height going on…check out the little fence along the road in comparison.  hahaha!

  20. Music
    The Dan Tyminski Band on stage at a bluegrass festival.

And that’s it.  WHEW.  I left probably half the pictures to the very last couple of days.  I am such a procrastinator.  LOL!

thanks for looking!


  1. well, well you've been busy!!! :)

    I just linked you up... thanks for participating... I'll be back in the next while to look closely!

  2. wow, lots to comment on!
    Great job!

    Ok, you have a gorgeous back deck! Love that!
    Glad you didn't get cuffed when taking the uniform pic! ;)
    Creative shot of the languages on the computer screen!
    Foreign Currency as home decor - way to think outside the box! Love it!
    Watermelon for 4 weeks, huh?! My Son is the only one who eats it in our house, so when I buy it he needs to eat it every day x2 or more! It might still be okay?! You should cut it up and make room for some more food! LOL.
    Ok, your height picture - I totally thought that was/is a picnic basket! LOL. I thought maybe you posted the wrong picture UNTIL I saw the fence... my goodness! How crazy is that?! Fun!

    Great job! :)

  3. you did a great job on our photo hunt. I did beat you in getting photos in last.. it was 15 minutes till midnight and had trouble with uploads. Next time I will give it some more time. Had a blast doing this.

  4. Hi Faith,
    Great Photos! I love that height one, that is really cool! Have a great day!


  5. I LOVE old graveyards too! It's not weird, its unique, thank you very much ;0)

  6. Great pictures Faith! I had fun joining in on your hunt this month. Ppl looked at me like I was crazy when I explained why I needed to find a certain project to photograph. However, I like trying ot think outside of the box and thought I was able to do that this time. Had fun! :o) Thanks for hosting.

  7. PS. I had thought about using my grandmother's grave marker for my "death" shot, but wondered if ppl would think it too morbid. Thus the dead was out of the box...but it looks like I had nothing to worry about! LOL.

  8. Faith, I really like your photos. you can still you are seasoned photographer !! I love the warm water.. right now that looks enviting. Thanks for do this for us.

  9. Those are terrific photos! Great job! I loved the sport one the best since its not something I would have thought of!
