For this week's SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY,
the words are:
Landscape; Complementary / Triadic Color;
Black & White; Food; & Blank Space
Participating in a weekly photo shoot, keeps me looking for photo opportunities ~ in the midst of busy workdays, laundry, spending time with JPE & girlfriends... I find I'm more focused on looking the the details in LIFE! If you'd like to participate in SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY,
(it's open to anyone!), visit ASHLEY'S BLOG!
AVILA Road ~ See Canyon
In the midst of the beautiful marigolds & grapevines, I looked across the road & noticed this old barn had finally fallen to the ground! I don't mean that in an unkind way... but for years I've driven by this barn & it has weathered rainstorms, several earthquakes, and winds that whip down this canyon... makes you wonder what caused its breaking point?

"Three ducks hoping to find a New Home" ~ seen at REMNANTS OF THE PAST Vintage Show... aqua-blue + orange & dark-green + red-orange (clay pot) are complementary colors on the color wheel.
Kat's, EXPLORING WITH A CAMERA current photo exercise is about using the color wheel to capture eye-stopping photos!

Avila Barn ~ Avila Beach, CA
I generally print photos in color. For the scavenger hunt, I used an editing program to change it to B&W. I don't think I would have noticed the dust & moisture marks on the metal bird & corn if this photo was posted in color? perhaps I have some other pictures that could look great in B&W? Food for thought!

Well - what can I say? I procrastinated about using my lemon before it began to spoil... This one will have to be tossed into the compost pile! I MEANT to make a sour cream bundt cake with a lemon drizzle topping... (guess I'll make a thinner drizzle). Where-o-where does time go?

Poor, lonely bench = a BLANK SPACE in the "Man Cave". An earlier glance into the "Man Cave" revealed people resting their feet, getting a bite to eat, having a cup of coffee/tea while they waited for the rest of their shopping group. The "Man Cave" was showing DVD's of Andy Griffith & had antique posters of pin-up girls... very cute idea!
Yesterday, Susan & I went to the Madonna Expo Center in San Luis Obispo for the REMNANTS OF THE PAST Vintage Show... It's hard to take pics & shop! plus, I have a difficult time asking vendors if I can photography their displays. Adorable displays... loads of antiques... this is a locally organized show that has grown from being held at Dana-Powers Barn (in Nipomo) to taking over the Madonna Expo Center.
Mark your calendar! the next show is scheduled for June 2-3, 2012...
Busy, lovely weekend... ummm... B-U-S-Y? perhaps that's the reason I didn't get the bundt cake made? How did you stay busy this weekend?
