Girl Meets Bulgaria

Musings of an American expat in Bulgaria (with detours in Utah and Alaska)

Scavenger Hunt Sunday


I know. I know. Just a few weeks ago I went off about not “getting” things like scavenger hunts and the like when it comes to my blog.

But I suddenly realized that I take my camera with my pretty much everywhere and I take random photos in an attempt to hone my skills. So… Why not participate in a link-up/challenge that is basically exactly that?!

Yes. I am eating my words, and all too soon!

I spent a few nights at my aunt and uncles house this week to babysit my cousin because school has been out. Thursday, after baking cookies, we decided to go on a walk around the neighborhood. Still undecided on whether I would participate or not, I had this weeks prompts on my mind and seemed to see ideas for them everywhere! That’s when I knew I wanted to be a part of it and started snapping away.

On to my photos:


We found this little guy in front of the house. There seems to be an infestation of them the past few days. He was very kind to serve as my model!


Beautiful old brick taken from my great grandparent’s house after it was torn down.


Batter up!


A man-hole cover. It works!


Not at all like the example, but I couldn’t resist this moss-covered tree trunk!


Well, there you have it! My first Scavenger Hunt Sunday! I had a blast walking around snapping photos for this weeks prompts. I will definitely be linking up again next week!

What do you think of my photos? PLEASE comment! I’d love to get some feedback (constructive criticism is most welcome).

  1. What a great set of photos…they all go so nicely together.

    • Thanks, Heather! Took a look at your blog, your photos are great! Please stop by next week for the next Scavenger Hunt, and I’ll be sure to stop by and see yours!

  2. Your shots are so creative – I love it. What a great idea with “home” and “cover.”

  3. I totally wanted to do the same “home” picture but didn’t get a chance to go looking for one. Glad to see you did! If you are ever in my neck of the blog world I would love for you to join in our weekly photo challenge called SHOOT. EDIT. SUBMIT. It’s a great place to see other photographer’s variety of styles and skills.

  4. I love all your images, especially the macro.

  5. These are so creative! Excellent work!! 🙂

  6. I love you collection. The macro shot is great.

  7. These are really great – I love your texture shot.

  8. Haha…totally love your “home” interpretation…kind of bummed I didn’t think of that one myself! 🙂


  9. I like your style, probably because it is similar to my own. I like to take shots that are not too cluttered . . . a simple, single focus. I love macro and texture and it is very cool the way you have named the shots with the prompts. Glad you came to play!

  10. SO creative and yet so simple. I NEVER would have thought of the home plate or the cover pictures but I love them!
