Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I have to admit, I had to scramble a bit to cover all of the prompts for this week.  What might be the easiest photo for some to capture, proved to be the most challenging for me.  Here we go.


Here are three generations of my girls.  My wife and the most extraordinary Nana that any grand kids could ask for, our daughter a loving and caring mother, and the three grand daughters, the most lovable crew ever.

 This proved to be the most challenging to locate.  I had to go back into the archives to come up with this solution.  These are the hands of the oldest grand daughter (from photo above) at prom last year.  The ring belonged to her great grandmother and my mom.  She wore it again this year.  It is special to her and to us.

 Locally there is a home/museum that depicts life in this area during the late 1800's.  It is called the Peel Mansion.  And while it may not be a mansion by today's standards, it was certainly a showplace in this rural part of the world for many years.  The actual mansion is not shown in this image, since the prompt was fence.  The structure shown here is the Lynch cabin that is on the grounds.  It serves as the gift shop.

 As long as you have kids and pets in close proximity, you're going to have a "Cuddly" situation.

 I love "Ghost" signs.  The more worn and weathered, the better.  I found this sign in Okmulgee, Oklahoma last year.  Where was it located?

 Why, on the side of a dairy truck shell, of course.  That's it for this week.  Oh, I almost forgot.  If you remember my post from last week, it involved a search for a suitable backdrop to photograph our oldest grand daughter for her senior portraits next year.  You can scroll down to see the options.  I said that I had a preference.  Well here it is.

This rustic foot bridge just has too many photo opportunities to pass up.  I just hope that next spring is as green as this one has been.  I will probably shoot one set of photos in the fall for the foliage colors and another set next spring when everything is green again.  Stay tuned.

See ya next week.


  1. Great shots Driller. I always love to see your family, you are a blessed man as I've said before.

    I also love ghost signs and yours is an excellent example. I think you picked the perfect spot for Senior pics. Of course, your subject would look great in a Walmart parking lot. Kudos to you for being involved in a your grandkids lives.

  2. I'm in love with the old dairy truck and its sign. Three generations was a great choice for that prompt. They are a lovely group of ladies.

  3. You do this so very well. I love your choice for the senior pictures too. Awesome.

    Love the video as always.

    Have a blessed day. :)

  4. Even though you said it was challenging, your picks are made it look easy. I especially like your three generations-perfect for "three".

  5. A really lovely family shot!
    The hands shot is lovely as wel and a very sweet cuddly shot!
    Hope you'll share some photos from that wonderful wooded location. :)

  6. Great shots - love that Fence photo!

  7. So many awesome shots here. I just LOVE you fence shot.


  8. Great shots! I too am drawn to old signs, which is probably obvious from my "sign" choices for this week.

    I love that you did a three generation photo! What a lovely bunch of ladies.

  9. What a wonderful picture of 3 generations! And the picture of your granddaughter's hands at die for! Such brilliant blue! What a sweet little girl and her dog! Love the sign...and the background for next years photos!
