Welcome to Treasure Tuesday! This is the second in a series as conceived by Greenthumb and interpreted by me.
Although her protocol is for participants to take all their pictures to her prompts and publish them in a single post, I’m going to break mine down in bite-sized portions.
Presenting June’s second installment:
Soccer: So I had these grand plans of featuring my intrepid T.A. for this one because she lives, breathes, eats soccer and is pretty much a walking poster child for the sport. Sadly, the last week of school was mayhem and that picture, planned or otherwise, just wasn’t happening. She was kind enough to send me a pretty awesome pic of herself afterwards but I felt that was cheating. I was planning a special trip to the local soccer field and just try for a literal photo, but the scavenger hunt gods smiled on me and allowed me to snap this gem. Thank you, IKEA!
Puppet: If there was one thing that needed to be interpreted metaphorically, it’d be puppets. IMHO, puppets are just one red rubber nose away from clowns and clowns scare the bejeezus outta me, so I was not looking forward to thinking about, let alone keep an eye out for a puppet photo op. Aly to the rescue, of course! When I showed her the latest hunt list, she did the 9-year-old eye roll (the one that’s still cute and not scornfully defiant yet) and reminded me of Dylan’s 5th grade explorers project that required a research paper and a…wait for it…puppet. Henry Hudson’s certainly no clown and was happy to pose for posterity.
Water: “Water, water, every where, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water, every where, Nor any drop to drink.” Thank goodness we were unlike the Ancient Mariner and had plenty of bottled agua in a cooler, but check out that shot of the Pacific Ocean. Now that’s some serious H2O!
You again?: Gotta love recycling! Some of you may remember this outfit from last week’s photo shoot. This was one of the outtakes and it was on its way to being deleted when Aly (again!) pointed out that it was the perfect tableau for this hunt topic. Because my dog is the ultimate photo bomber and yes, I always think in my head “You again?” every time he comes and interrupts a perfectly scheduled shoot. At least he’s photogenic.
