Karma’s February Photo Hunt

Flake(s)

I was hoping to participate in Karma’s February Photo Hunt with all new photos, but have had to resort to the archives for a couple.  The first one (flake) was easy as Mother Nature provided us with a lot of flakes yesterday.  The snowflakes were so big that they almost look like coconut flakes falling from the sky.  Cornflakes and/or coconut flakes were going to be my back-ups if we didn’t get some snow.  The other possibility was too insulting to consider.  Besides, I don’t know any flakes (other than my occasional forays into flakiness).

Bow

I thought bow would be easy until I tried to find one.  I was stumped for a while no matter how I pronounced the word (bou as in to bend or incline; or boh as in “bow and arrow” or a looped bit of string, ribbon, etc.).  This morning it occurred to me that I make two bows every morning when I put on my sneakers.

No mug here.

The mug I wanted to use wouldn’t allow me to put his face on the blog.  Bella didn’t seem interested, either.  I ended up settling for this:

Mug(ging for the camera)

I’m glad I spotted this little piggy with his big mug of a face otherwise I would have had to use my own mug.  A coffee mug would have sufficed too, but where’s the fun in that?

Row (of fence posts)

I have two candidates for row from my last two hikes.  I found the fence posts in Towner’s Woods.  The row of trees that follows are from the Buckeye Trail.

I am going to have to skip “bun.”  I don’t eat much bread so finding a bun at home was impossible, and we haven’t been eating out much lately (the food at home is much more healthful).  I don’t know anyone who is pregnant (so no “bun in the oven” shots).  The only other option when it comes to buns wouldn’t be appropriate for my PG-rated blog.

Close but not quite...

The vine pictured above was as close as I could come to finding a heart shape in nature.  The archives turned up a couple of other hearts that are more, well, heart shaped.

Redbud leaves would have been perfect, but there are no redbud leaves to be found right now.

That leaves one more.  Leap!

Bo likes to leap in the snow.

That one also had to come from the archives.  My family members would be willing to leap for the sake of a photo, but not for the sake of being posted on the blog.  Bo, on the other hand, doesn’t mind being on the blog at all.  He’s a good dog that way.

That’s it for Karma’s February Photo Hunt.  Thanks for dropping by to have a look.  And a great big thank you to Karma for putting this together.  As always, it was fun.  🙂

    It must have been fun to take all the pictures on look for the appropriate one in your archives. Last year, a friend of mine and me started a “photo hunting” and it was very inspiring while it lasted.

    Beautiful pictures!!

    I was worried that you were going to try to find a photo of dandruff for the flake one– whew! Dodged a bullet with that one. 🙂 (Didn’t even occur to me that a flake could be an unsavory character until you mentioned it. Slow on the uptake today.)

    Do you know anybody with long enough hair to style into a bun? That’s the first thing I thought of for that one (not even the bits of bread!)

    This sounds like a fun challenge. Great shots as always!

      Oh! A bun!! As in hair. I didn’t think of it at all, Dana. My oldest granddaughter has to wear her hair in a bun for her ballet recitals and I’m sure I could have found something I could use among the zillions of photos I’ve taken of her. Doh! That’s what I meant about my occasional flakiness. lol! Dandruff, on the other hand, did briefly enter my mind. One of my cats (Izzy) has it and that would have been an easy shot.

        I’m a bit scattered myself these days, Robin. (And also on most other days, too.) It’s funny what our minds think of first when presented with an ambiguous word.

  3. Well, this was certainly a departure from “our” walks in The Bogs! Love the new kitty header–those green eyes are fabulous. And your running shoe actually has quite nice lighting! Fun post, Robin!

    some pretty awesome photos in this post!! I love the forest ones so much!

  5. aFrankAngle says:

    Ahhh … the sleeping kittie makes me smile.

  6. Libby says:

    Amazing photo of snow falling – something I have never managed to capture. I love the dog too.

  7. Anna says:

    I am amazed at the snow photos I’ve been seeing at various blogs and sites. We haven’t had snow and I have truly missed the snow. That is a great snow falling capture. I just love the shoes with the glow green laces! Gorgeous kitty header.

  8. Cmsmith says:

    The photo hunt sounds like a fun idea.

    Cute dog. I have a little coat like that for Arthur too.

  9. These are great! Of course the hearts are my favorites 😉
    We have several redbud trees in our yard, but they’re just getting ready to bloom, so no leaves quite yet.

  10. Karma says:

    Thanks so much for participating! I knew you would do an awesome job, even without a bun. I love your hearts – that’s just the type of thing I was thinking of when I posted the photo hunt. I was laughing a bit when I read about your mug; I think you may understand more when you see my photo hunt! 🙂 Those flakes you’ve got are really something!

    • Robin says:

      You’re welcome, Karma. And THANK YOU! It was lots of fun. I’m glad I was able to participate this time around, and I’m looking forward to the next one. 🙂

      Love, love, love your mug shot!

    I love the variety you offered here… something different from the norm. 😉

  12. […] the fact that the word “bun” totally stumped her, Robin turned in a beautiful photo hunt. I just love her natural hearts, and the doggy leap in the snow is […]

  13. Dawn says:

    You know what? Out of all these fantastic photos I really enjoyed the shoelaces. Go figure…something about the light I think.

  14. Carol says:

    I’m with Dawn – the sneakers are my favorite, I think it has to do with the light on the bright green bows – something I would never have thought of. Good going!

  15. Quite clever finding a bow right at your feet. 🙂 I like the fence row over the trees. Very rustic looking.
