Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Here we go with week number two! This week I was more organised, having already got one under my belt, and I took the time throughout the week to focus on the prompts. I hope you like my interpretations...

1. Love

This is my friend Steph and her little man, who wasn't feeling very well when they came to visit this week. All he wanted was cuddles from his Mummy. 

2. Duplicated

These matryoshka (Russian dolls) sit atop my bookcase, all tucked up inside the large one. In fact, I don't think I've had them out since I first brought them back from my travels to Siberia, almost 5 years ago. When I saw this prompt, it was the perfect excuse to line all fifteen (yes, fifteen!) duplicates out in a row again.

3. Trend or trending

I was unsure about how best to interpret this prompt, but in the end this photograph seemed the right choice on two levels. The first was that I have seen, in the past week, two separate examples of this type of shot being showcased - so it seems to be 'trending' itself. The second is that Valentine's Day was trending all over the internet this week, and the 'love heart' shadow symbolises that.

4. Paper

Paper birds hanging in the trees for the 'Birds' Wedding Day' this week. 

5. Plastic

At first glance I didn't even notice that this 'leaf' was plastic! Look closely and you can see the actual leaf  has been preserved inside a laminated plastic encasement. 

Thanks for popping over for a peek!
