Scav Hunt Sunday: Mornings and Mugs

I don't get the paper, well I do, but on my ipad. A neighbor in my building does so I dashed out one morning to snap a picture hoping to the high heavens no one would walk out the door and see me, in my pj's, taking pictures of papers at 7am...

Morning Light:
My living room faces east and I love when the sun crests over the building across the street, blinding, but pretty cool.
While Massachusetts has tons of forests, I do live in the city.  But, I love that even in a big city there are areas of greenery.

Tea or coffee:
Mug ready for coffee (which I don't drink) or tea (which I do drink). Funny that I chose this mug on this day too, because exactly six years ago I bought this mug the weekend I moved into my dorm for freshman year of college...time flies!

Totally tried to recreate that famous touch painting...not so sure if I like how it turned out...

Just picturing you running out for your Newspaper shot :). Beautiful photos.

Your newspaper shot made me laugh - oh the things we do for a photo! Nice collection and it looks as though we live in the same neck of the woods, so to speak. I love seeing photos from another Bostonian, and agree about the beautiful greens paces in the city!

The things we do for our art! Lol. I want to see you in your pjs -- maybe your neighbor is linking up to Scavenger Hunt as well. :)

Absolutely love the creativity of the touch shot. As for those papers-had your neighbor seen you in PJs, you likely would have seen him in boxers. Jus' sayin'. Marvelous weather today-enjoy.

Great shots!
I know the feeling, so many times I have hoped that no neighbours will stop by when I'm trying to take pictures of something. Sometimes they do.... =)

Nice forest shot

great set....i'm sure if the people in the neighborhood know you, they would not think anything of you, in your p.j.'s, at 7 a.m., taking a picture of a newspaper.

something tells me that fits right in to your m.o. (and i mean that in the nicest of ways) ;))

Super fun shots this week. Love that mug and that forest shot in the city is so pretty. Got a good laugh out of you snapping a picture of your neighbors newspaper. Getting caught would have been horrible. :)

I had to lol! at your newspaper commentary. MA is quite woodsie, plus lots of great parks. Good group of pictures for this week's hunt.

Oh funny, what we do for our art...sure glad your neighbor didn't open his door right when you were snappin'. And what lovely places for you to walk in your city.

Great set!! I love your newspaper shot! I don't take the paper either and until I went to my daughter's I didn't know how I'd get that one! Also love the morning light! What a beautiful thing to see each day!

I love the mental image of you running to take the shot without being noticed! LOL Fun photos--I love the sun flare, and love your interpretation of "touch"!

We don't be the actual newspaper either. So we improvise, right?

That is a very nice mug too!

Jenn said... {Reply}
