Shutterbugs and photo-lovin’ friends glad to have you join me for iSpy and WPSH Photo Challenges 2.1. Shorthand for iSpy and the Winter Photo Scavenger Hunt. Today I am sharing my snapshots for both of these photo series. You can revisit last month’s post, here.
My blogging buddy Lysha at A Camera and a Cookbook hosts the iSpy challenge. She gives us 5 prompts each week and shares her own photos with a link up on Saturdays. The Winter Photo Scavenger hunt (WPSH) is hosted by Mary Lou and Ellen. We are tasked with finding all of the objects by 03.31.2021.
Photo Challenges 2.1
You might remember that once a month I share my photos for the Sunday Stills photo challenge with Terri at Second Wind Perspectives. That post will be coming right up!! For today, though, check out these pictures for photo challenges 2.1.
ISPY PHOTO CHALLENGE 2021
Sharing 2 weeks worth of photos for this challenge.
ISPY WEEK #6
– Messy – one of the activities on my winter bucket list was to do some crafts with Lucia. I finally had the opportunity to make the pinecone bird feeders with my pumpkin pie this weekend. It was a slightly messy project, which bothered Lucia a little bit. And, to be honest, her Gabba, too.
– Glass – the water in the pool reflected the early evening sky like glass.
ISPY WEEK #7
– Progress – making progress on my mosaic, thanks to the #100dayproject. Might actually get this thing finished.
– Sign – from our neighborhood Little Free Library. One of my winter goals is to consolidate my children’s books. I have worked on that but need to do a little more work!! This LFL has been the recipient of many of my purged books.
– Selfie – took this shot while looking down at the camera. Made my hair look like I actually have some!! Better than Rogaine!!
WINTER PHOTO SCAVENGER HUNT (WPSH)

- #4 glass – PC helped me cut sheets of glass into tiny bits for my mosaic. The nippers require quite a bit of hand strength.
- #9 weather conditions – our February snow storm that turned the whole state of Texas white for a few days. I like the contrast between the green leaves that had just come out on the Mexican elder tree with the white snow.
- #13 something with C – our last name. And this pillow. Which represents the C in our last name.
- #19 something yellow – all the roses.
I’ve enjoyed participating in these photo challenges this year. Sunday Stills, iSPY and the WPSH. Have a new phone with 3 cameras that I need to learn how to use. The phone came with the tiniest owner’s guide. Have had to Google how to turn the thing off. Definitely a learning curve.
I challenge you to try taking photos for some of these prompts just to see what you come up with. See if doing so won’t have you looking at the little things in your world with a new, more appreciative eye.
Thank you for spending a few minutes of your day here with me. Hope your week has started off well!
Hugs and kisses,
