Scav Hunt Sunday: Buttons and Bananas

Favorite fruit:
 Ever since I got sick, this has been the fruit of the hour. Good thing they are 19 cents each at Trader Joe's!

 They should revoke my New Englander membership card for this attempt at a map of New England, which I drew to explain where some states where to my students. One thought my Long Island looked like a hot dog so he added a bun and mustard...

 Some of my spare buttons for my various sweaters and pants.

 I took off my glasses and shot in manual for this. My vision is horrible (been in bifocals for over 1/2 my life...) so this was the best I could manage!

A disc weight left laying on the gym floor.

I love your vision is beautiful.... :) And I'm not a huge fan of bananas...but your picture is so good, that it makes me want one. :) Great job!!!!

I love 'vision' - how clever! Going to try that...cause I can't see a thing without glasses either. One of the things I love about Monet's water lilies, is that he painted them over and over ... even as he was going blind later in life. So we see what he saw. That's always fascinated me!

Vision - totally understand!

Hey, I think the map is pretty good! Love the hot dog though. So funny. I also vision out of focus. I think it is perfect, and ironic.

I really like the vision shot. sometimes soft and blurry is a really great thing. I've been trying to take a good image of a banana without success. I have the same problem with kayaks. Must be the shape. I like the way you solved that. Your student must be gifted. Hot dog and bun-too funny.

Hahaha, sometimes late at night, my vision gets blurry like that and I have to pull out the reading glasses. Still in a bit of denial that I now need reading glasses!

Oh my gosh...LOVE the humor of Long Island. Is that a Coney Island hot dog? :)

Wonderful set.
Such humor from you student with your Map.
Vision - Cool blurred look. This is my favortie way to view Christmas lights.

Ha. Love your vision, I've been in glasses since third grade, so I know that blur when I tell peopl how far I can see and then move my hand about 6 inches in front of my face they are all like "whoa".

Great perspective on your banana and your map had me chuckling - especially with the extra help by your student. Thanks for sharing.

weight was not a prompt, but I had fun chuckling when I saw it. Your vision pic was so creative as was your student with the mustard and bun!

My favourite is your vision shot. I have been playing a lot lately with out of focus shots and yours is just lovely.

Love your take on map. Your map drawing is much better than what I could do. And I laughed at the hot dog comment. Too cute!

Great shots as always. Love the vision idea. Thanks

That banana looked almost good enough to eat. (Yep, bad BAD joke.) I think your map of New England is pretty darn good. I recognized it right away. The bun around Long Island is pretty funny.
