Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I haven't done much shooting the past couple of weeks, but that's a whole other story.  The result is that I had to look in my archives for some appropriate images.  If you knew how semi-organized my images are you would know that finding appropriate images for this week was easier said than done.  So, without further delay, here we go.

This cooler has been in the family for over sixty years.  A very close friend (pseudo aunt) worked for Coca Cola and gave this to my dad in the early 1950's.  It's been camping, fishing, picnicking and it is still in excellent condition.

Almost any baby animal looks cute enough to snuggle.  This little fella was at the Tulsa State Fair.  The petting zoo and livestock exhibits are one of the best parts of the fair.

On any given night the crowd on this street is so thick you can hardly move independently.  You just go with the flow.  I've been to New Orleans a couple of times on business and I've visited Bourbon Street during the daylight hours. It's not my favorite place.  I really have no desire to be there when the sun goes down and it gets weird.

 Behind the Lens(es)
I'm usually the one behind the lens.  Since I captured this image with a self-timer on one of my cameras, I am really in front of the lens and technically behind the least I think that's how it works.

 Where Were You
Anyone who has witnessed the majesty of the Grand Canyon knows that one image is not enough to capture the grandeur of this place.  In fact, I don't believe that 100,000 images can convey the splendor of this wonder of the world.  Truly, mid-day is not the best time to shoot, but if you take any kind of a tour, you're going to be shooting in the middle of the day, in the worst possible light.  I would love to go back and capture morning and evening light in the magical place.
Okay, that wraps up another Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  See  you  next week, hopefully with some more recent images.  Have a blessed day.


  1. I love them all, but the Grand Canyon is indeed a magical place. I too want to return. Love all the shots as always.

    Have a blessed weekend. ☺

  2. Nice shots Driller. My Dad has an old metal cooler from the 50's that he still uses. I love that kind of stuff. I love New Orleans to wander around and take pics of and when Heather goes with me we eat grandly. It does get very weird after dark. Very weird. I also like the Tulsa State Fair. And the Grand Canyon is always Grand. I would like to go and spend a few days and take lots of shots early and late.

  3. Really good selections for all the prompts.....what a contrast between New Orleans and the Grand Canyon. The Coca Cola cooler is a classic.

  4. While Coca-Cola is not my favorite beverage, I just love that cooler. Great reminder of how things used to be made to last. The Grand Canyon shots are just breathtaking. I don't see us ever getting out that way to visit, so I have to be content with viewing pictures taken by others. It really is an amazing place and a wonderful glimpse of God's awesomeness.

  5. Thanks for the memory of the Grand Canyon, I used to see it almost every summer while growing up. I adore your snuggle photo. and wow, what a camera set up you have.

  6. I love all photos of the Grand Canyon. I have been several times, but always with a cheap film camera. I'm anxious to go back back with my Canon.

  7. oh, the Grand Canyon! love those shots! I've never been to New Orleans... do you feel knocked around in the crowds? wonder if the crowds would be intimidating?
    my grandparents had a cooler like that at our trailer at the beach. very nice.

  8. I used to live by a goat and sheep farm. I miss seeing the kids and lambs playing with each other.

    You have some big lenses there!

  9. Love your interpretations. I can certainly testify that baby goats are perfect for snuggling!
