SHS Photo Challenge 52

So this edition is the completion of a full year of Scavenger hunts and I never missed a single one.  This weekly photographic exercise has brought me much joy and I have connected with some great people who inspire me with their unique interpretations, creativity and humour.  

Looking forward to another year of sharing the thrill of the hunt with you all.

1.  Water Drops
 After months without any significant precipitation we have finally had a good soaking.  I can almost hear the earth and trees sighing with relief.

2.  Faithfulness
 As soon as I saw this prompt the beloved hymn "Great is Thy Faithfulness" sprang to mind.
I think this shot is a great visual for this verse of the song . . .

"Summer and winter and spring time and harvest
sun, moon and stars in their courses above.
Join with all nature in manifold witness
to Thy great faithfulness, mercy and love.

3.  Then & Now
 As mentioned last weekend, I got a haircut and even though it was before the prompts were released I figured it was a great choice for then and now.

4.  Fingertips
 This is the typical position of my hand as I drive . . . all but one of my fingertips tucked out of sight.

5.  Nature Walk
Such beauty I found today at Hawthorne Rotary Park . . . hard to choose just one.


  1. Wow, those fall colours are brilliant.
    Have a great Sunday!

  2. Wow well done you a whole year - I've only just found it - did my first last week. I love your picture for faithfulness - beautiful colours.

  4. Your faithfulness photo is beautiful and it was a lovely interpretation of the prompt. Great haircut - very stylish.

  5. Congrats on a full year!! Here's to many more! Love your haircut and faithfulness - stunning!!

  6. When we first started the scavenger hunt Sunday I was a week ahead of you. I was not as faithful as I only posted #49 this week, but I almost did every single week. You could have put your picture in faithfulness. Like Tamar, I loved the haircut. Water drops and Nature walk made me sigh. I could just sense the grandeur of God in the rain and standing under the boughs of that tree. Thanks for dropping by my place and leaving your beautiful comment. May the memory of your mama give you great joy even amidst the sorrow of missing her. I will hug mine extra tight in memory of your mama.
