scavenger hunt sunday

I say it again and again — This is my absolute favourite photo challenge. The community it draws together is so incredibly supportive and Ashley Sisk has a great deal to do with that. I’m awed every week by the talented photographers who share their work there. I always feel like I’m missing out when I don’t have the time to visit other participant’s sites. I just want to soak every image in. I have so much to learn.

This is Me
This is me almost every week … taking a self-portrait for my 52-week project. I fell off track in mid-Dec when family matters and Christmas began to take over my life. I also blame all the highly addictive, free iPad game apps which have more than consumed me this past month. But thanks to Chelsey’s support at The Paper Mama, I feel renewed and more than ready to continue with the project.

I didn’t make any resolutions this year. I’m a slacker … I prove this every year. But for the purpose of this photo challenge, I will make one resolution that seems more doable than losing weight and giving up junk food. This year I resolve to find the top of this poor Wise Man’s head before December 1st when I bring out our advent calendar again.

I treasure every moment I get to spend with these three.

Even when his eyes are filled with defiance, there is nothing that says innocence than the face of a small child.

I drew a blank with this theme so I went through my images taken this past week and was prepared to go even further back. And then I saw my 3-year-old’s painting … a multi-media piece with indistinguishable shapes painted using primary colours and white chalk scratched across it. A primitive but priceless work of art of a child.

Visit Ramblings and Photos by Ashley Sisk to see how others interpreted this week’s themes.

  5. Half (Shannie’s Suggestion)

  1. I always look forward to your interpretations…you are just incredible. And I completely agree with your statement above. I love the community that is created through this challenge. I look forward to seeing what each of you will do each week and I love the support that is passed along. It really is wonderful and I’m glad to have you be a part of it!

  2. Hahaha, I love your son’s face. It truly is innocence to see their emotions so honestly expressed on their face.
    Your shots this week are really amazing. I think my favorite is your son’s painting. The composition is beautiful!

  3. his painting is superb. I hope you framed it! (Especially love that the kids are in the background still at work.) Your self portrait and innocence are truly great captures.
