Scavenger Hunt Sunday

VANISHING POINT
These steps lead from our downtown area to a park on top of the hill. If you aren't into making the climb the good news is you can drive around to the top.
I've added a texture and played with different blending modes to achieve the look.

SQUARE CROP
While out driving around yesterday in our 62 degree weather we saw some daffodils and I had to stop and take a quick shot. We were in the middle of the road and the midday sun was extremly bright so I had to play with the levels to try and save the shot but it's the first daffodil I've seen and I wanted to share. Yeah Spring!

UNDER
"One Nation Under God"

"WELCOME TO THE JUNGLE"
This is a mural my son put on the wall of my grandson's nursery. The plain white shiny wall seemed to need a little something so I added a texture and then erased the texture from the monkeys.
JUNGLE #2

These are from my archives from October. Hubs and I passed it sitting on a trailer in front of a sporting goods store. I didn't ask!

CALM
Now that my post is finished and ready I think I'll have some!

For more Scavenger Hunt Sunday join Ashley here.

Vanishing Point wins! Meaning, I love those so much in the entries I've viewed this morning. The tea is the calmest vignette I've viewed.
Speaking of calm, I enjoy your choices of music on your site.

I really love your vanishing point, calm, and under shots. Those steps remind me of the steps up to my dorm my freshman year of college, thanks to the stairs I didn't gain the freshmen 15.
