Scav Hunt Sunday: Spices and Elements

 I walked into my bedroom to see this striking shadow of my dance sculpture.

 Cute little fabric turtle that Avi bought me as a b-day gift year ago. It's still celebrating by wearing the bow.

Facial Feature:
 Meet Wrinkles. We've been together for 17 years and his smile gets me every time. His scratched eyes show how loved he's been over the past 17 years.

 Au, get it? I had to use something from my AU (American University) days for this one. Oddly enough, our colors weren't gold, but red, white, and blue. Anyway, my stab at Au, I mean gold.

I'm not a fan of super spicy foods. I like warm spices like in Indian food, this is turmeric and curry powder that I was using to make a curry for shabbat lunch this week. It makes my apartment so heavenly!
Scavenger Hunt Sunday
I also have a new button on the right sidebar that links to all my scav hunts so far!

Wrinkles - the smile that keeps on giving. These are all cute. I especially like your composition on the 'spicy' shot.

Really loved your shadow shot. Very clever interpretation of the gold. And I can see why you've got a soft spot for Wrinkles.

I love your Shadow shot. Paired with the actual sculpture, the shadow looks like it's moving. If you can somehow get different angles on the shadow and play around a bit in Photoshop, you could create one photo with the different shadows... :)

Love your interpretation of gold. Very clever! :)

Clever interpretation this week Tamar. That shadow shot is a really winner-one to print and frame me thinks. I'm with you on spicy stuff, but I like the way you captured it. Have a great sunday my friend.

Dear Tamar,

This is such a wonderful set of pictures. It took me awhile to get the gold one, but I turned my laptop around for my husband to see and he instantly said, "Gold: creative!"

He's so smart and so are you, smart and creative...good combination!

An old stuffed toys always bring me fond memory. My boy had one of my childhood toy, look alike from your Wrinkles. I like your shadow shot, nice to turn it to Black and White photo.

That shadow and its sculpture are stunning! How fun to meet you and see that you are a teacher. That's what I did for fifteen years before I had my own kids. Your students are very blessed to have you and your energy. I cannot imagine trying to count 100 quinoa grains. I bet the kids were amazed at how little room they took up. :-)

Cedar said... {Reply}

The shsdows are really cool! The cleverness of your gold shot is awesome! Great set!

Wendy said... {Reply}

Love your AU shot...I will never forget the symbol for gold after watching a TV show. The characters were learning the periodic table and one of them said...AU, come back here with my gold watch!!!!
Also love your shadow shot!!!

Great set of pictures this week!
