No Snow Photo Hunt

Karen thought her list was an easy one this month.  Simple items referring to winter and the month of February.  In some ways, she was right.  In others, I had to get a bit creative.

Photos taken with an Apple iPhone 4 using the Pro HDR app, except where noted.

1. Flake

You would think considering the time of year and where I live, this would have been an easy one.  Any other year, it would have been. This year I returned to a favorite breakfast cereal from my youth.  Hey, they’re gr-r-reat!

2. Bow

With stores filled with Valentine’s Day merchandise, finding a bow was easy.  Finding one  worthy of Karen’s photo hunt took a little more time until I walked into the Gertrude Hawk shop.  A golden bow on a deep red heart shaped box.  Perfect!

3. Mug

When participating in Karen’s photo hunts, I put the list on my iPhone so I can refer to it wherever I happen to be.  When attending a family celebration at the local Spaghetti Warehouse restaurant I ordered one of my favorite sodas, a bottle of IBC Root Beer poured into a large glass mug.

4. Row

This one I knew what I was going to photograph.  I walked out to my company’s warehouse and looked for a pallet of soda.  It turned out to be a pallet of Lipton tea and I lined up this photo of the blue caps in rows.

5. Bun

Years ago my local malls were filled with Cindy Cinnamon Rolls locations.  They were huge buns with billions of calories and people did not care they were so good.  Alas, I could only find this coffee bun at Dunkin’ Donuts.  Tasted okay but I do miss Cindy’s.

6. Something Heart Shaped in Unusual Places

This was not taken with my iPhone nor this month.  I still wanted to include it as I have shared it previously online but not on this blog.

    They’re all great shots but I am especially impressed with the rows of blue caps. The blue and brown look so good together.

    The heart-shaped waterfall pool isn’t in-your-face obvious, which is probably what makes it so beautiful.

    Love your take on the hunt as I knew I would! Those rows of bottle caps look really cool and the heart shaped basin is pretty amazing! But shouldn’t that have been a “Mug” Root Beer?? 😉

    Oh, and thanks so much for participating! 🙂

    Ha ha, Frosted Flake(s)! Funny… Fun to see what you came up with. I am so in love with rows of tea, you can’t imagine. It is the BEST!
