Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I'm super excited to be able to participate in this week's Scavenger Hunt Sunday! And my first time linking up with Kat over at Exploring with a Camera! I've been experimenting a lot this past week with the free photo sharing app/editor instagram which I love!! As I mentioned in a previous post this week I love the square format and the retro looking filters you can apply. All of my photos were taken with my ipod and edited with the free app instagram.

Reflections In Glass
I'm not necessarily an old car freak or anything but I think my dream car would be something old and gangster looking in black! Anyway, knowing that I wanted to participate in the scavenger hunt this week I had it in my head that I wanted the headlight prompt to be from an antique car. On the drive to the pool I noticed the Packard sitting in the lot of an antique shop. On the way back it was still there and we pulled over. Then, while snapping away I noticed this reflection in the glass! That's my white Pacifica with my family patiently waiting inside with wet swimming suits so that, "Mom can take another picture." And that white suv under the open flag is seen through the car and the window on the other side.

Vacation Favorites

I call P and S "The Little Ones." They are 17 months apart and closer in age than their big sister who is 3 years older than P. Anyway, I love everything about this picture. They really are best friends although neither of them will admit it. S is younger but just as tall as P...they remind me of twins. On the 6 hour drive to our vacation spot I passed the time by making the friendship bracelets on their little wrists. I pray that they will always be close.

Inspiration Instagram

I've had the instagram app installed on my ipod for a few months now but just yesterday decided to sign up and actually use it. I love it just as much for the photo editing as the sharing. It's very inspiring!

Tin flowers that I bought at the farmer's market.

Native Prarie from just around the corner.

I love the old square format retro looks that instagram offers. The three that follow were taken yesterday at an old abandoned train station in a neighboring town.
