Scavenger Hunt Sunday

1.  Long Exposure
So I must admit I have been wanting to take a "LONG EXPOSURE" shot for months, but keep choosing to do something else during my free time.  This week I had a million ideas run through my head.......but again did not go out and give any of them a try.  One day...........Instead you get this photo from the archives.  This was the day we received our DSLR.  Sam and I were playing around with all of the settings (NOTE:  I knew NOTHING.....ZIP.....ZERO.....ZILCH about photography, hence the blur throughout the photo); however, I still think these photos are fun and they bring back wonderful memories of our days in Kentucky.
2.  Shapes
A little boring I know, but shapes nonetheless.  Can you spot the rectangle, square, and circle?  Now all we need is a triangle.  This photo was taken on top of the parking garage at the airport.

3.  Green
A beautiful green leaf from the papaya tree in our backyard.  

4.  Fruit
This is our Mango tree.  Yes, I said, "OUR."  We have a Mango and a Papaya tree in our backyard.  The tree is full of fruit for the first time since we moved into our house a few years ago.  The mangos are not ripe yet, but we have had one tasty papaya.  

5.  Childhood Memory
I spent a lot of time on the trampoline as a kid.  This is a photo my cousin took of me doing a back tuck.  I was in 6th grade.
Seeing this photo brings back so many wonderful memories.  However, it also makes every muscle, joint, and ligament in my body hurt.  Seeing this also makes me think about how thankful I am for digital photographs. Oh, and yes that's me, but I was on a trampoline.

I like that you chose fruit that was growing. Very cool. Amazing jumps on that tramp....you must have been quite an athlete...makes my muscles hurt too.
