4) Writing


5) Water

 Last but not least is Oscar. Oscar lives in a 55 gallon tank with two other fish, an algae eater and a catfish that you never see.  One night we heard a crash in the other room, and  HOLY TOLEDO there laid Oscar on the floor stunned. He had jumped out of the tank.  My hubby said Oscar jumped out because he saw this monkey with bulging eyes on the computer monitor next to the tank, and it probably scared him.    Can you believe it, he is still alive, and is almost 10 years old!

        
It's time for Scavenger Hunt Sunday let the party begin!

I love your reflection and writing shots!

The old building with the faded words just calls to me and is a great contrast to the lights of the city reflected in the water.

Oh my goodness! My husband's college room mate had an Oscar in a tank in their dorm room...same thing happened...it jumped out...over spring break! Not a pretty picture when they got back to campus! On a brighter note, haha...love your "writing" capture. I love to photograph graffitti...an underappreciated art form in my eyes. Lovely.

My absolutely favorite thing this week is your Oscar story!! I can't believe he jumped out of the tank!! As far as the pictures go...I really do love them all, but I think my favorite is your selfie in the garden. Lovely.

Chic Homeschool Mama said...

You reflection shot is stunning & your story about the fish- WOW- that is amazing.

Ida said...

Fabulous Series:
What a brightly colored door (Mainly One Color) - Great photo too.
Awesome view (Reflection) - I love night photo's of city lights.
Cool (Writing) photo. These signs on building fascinate me.
Terrific (Water) photo. Oscar is an intesting fish. So glad he survived his ordeal.
My favorite of your series:
Around The Home - I love the monochromatic look except for the tiny pop of red from the garden shears.

Hello Saun, wonderful images. I love the hometown night reflection. And I had to let me son see your Oscar. He has a 55 gallon tank and would love to have an Oscar. Great post and photos, I hope you have a wonderful week!

Scott said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog and your kind comments. You've got some nice shots here. I'll be back to enjoy it often.

Jeanne said...

Love all of your pictures today, and what a funny story about oscar. I once had a frog which jumped out of the aquarium, and did not know it for awhile. Although I tried CPR, alas, it was his last adventure! Especially love that red door, and the photo of you working in the garden. Have a great night! Jeanne

Ashley Sisk said...

What Am I

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

You've had Oscar for 10 years? Amazing. Maybe he jumped out because he watched Finding Nemo one too many times?

EG Wow said...

What a gorgeous night reflection!

Debbie said...

an awesome collection of pictures and that's some fish story!!

we had a gold fish that did the same thing....we found him a week later in the boys toy box. he was not as lucky as oscar!!

BF said...

Love that red door!

Ms. Becky said...

ooh la la, love the red door, and you got a reflection there too! double dose. fabulous selfie too, I like that it's in black and white, it has wonderful texture. your reflection shot is extraordinary, I've not been able to capture such glow in a night shot. the building for writing has true charm, I hope it's saved, those windows are a treasure. your photo of Oscar had me laughing out loud. what a character! I'm still laughing. that's a great shot. thanks for stopping by my blog and saying hello, I truly appreciate it. happy week to you!

Terrie said...

Great group of images - particularly like "writing"!

Barb said...

Great series of shots! I like the one of you working in the garden - great colour, composition and I love that wooden cart.

Amarie said...

Beautiful skyline photo!

Martha said...

I love your Sweet Shot! So cool the way you highlighted the clippers and the face is hidden.

Buttons said...

These are fantastic I love all of them I must say I could not pick a favourite I am leaning towards the Red door, I don't know why. B

missing moments said...

Love that brick wall! Hope you and yours have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

Judy said...

That red door is impressive! I kept going back to look at it again. I don't know what I think...
I love the writing on the side of that old building!! And both Oskar and his friend are pretty large guys! Good thing you heard Oskar when he fled the tank, and were able to get him back into the water before he died!

barefoot mama said...

There is something truly magical about that garden photo. Beautiful ...

I love the red front door, I have always thought these Scavenger Hunts look fun. Maybe I will be able to join in sometimes as I have just started a separate photography blog.
