the october 2010 photo hunt - my entries!

Y'all have heard me ramble and lament and muse and lament and ramble about the October Photo Hunt over the past few weeks, right?  Well - The end of the month is here and I'm happy to say that I've pulled through with all of my entries - yay! So, without further ado, hope you enjoy. ;)  This has been so much fun....

In Disguise
Yes.  This is me.  In diguise, you see.  I love how dramatic the B&W makes things look.

Pie.  'Nuff said.

Fall Colors
fall is here.
Oh my...I love this shot.

A Jack O’lantern

a Shot from the Ground
from the ground
My kitty...sleeping.  And our cozy, yummy, delicous blanket.  Don't look at me like that - blankets can be delicious and you know it. ;)

a Landscape
at the beach...

Ahh, loveliness.

a Fall Tradition

pumpkin carving love:)
Megan - helping to carve the pumpkin pictured above.  I realize the photo-quality isn't too great...but the face is precious to me.



I. Love. Goldfish.  sigh...


This is what Stephen generally does when I point the camera at him.  Little does he know how stinkin' cute it looks when he does that.  Ha.

Faces formed in Nature

Okay, I cheated.  Stop looking at me like that.  This was a difficult one for me - I honestly couldn't find any "faces formed in nature"...So, I decided to creatively make on of my own.  Using jewelry.  Interesting, I  know.

Tilt-Shift Photography
a first attempt

I really apologize, guys.  Time #3 this has appeared on my site - and all within the past few posts.  Never again;)

B&W with selective coloring

I'm not a huge fan of Black and White with selective coloring, but I think I did a rather interesting job with it here.


But you probably already knew that.

bokeh love

I happen to adore completely out-of-focus photos. <3
Best Photo taken October 23rd

A lovely rose from out front.

Something from the Kitchen
Another shot of the mousse I made the other day.  Note the little bit of it on the side of the bowl - hee!

Something Vintage
An old coffee grinder.  And a lovely blue background.  So, maybe more like retro.  Well, except for the coffee grinder.  Oh, never mind.

Something Creepy
At the end of the month I found myself left without anything truly creepy, so I decided to go with this.  It's another Jack O'Lantern shot, just when I was experimenting with larger shutter-speeds.  Does anyone think it's creepy, by chance?

Something Golden
Fall beauty.  Beautiful.

A Self-Portrait

This is my profile picture and flickr icon, so chances are you've already seen it before.  But, I like it.  And that's not something I often say when referring to a photo of myself.  Look at that reflection in my eyes that I was so happy about...

There are some simply fabulous photos over here, if you'd like to be impressed and perhaps drool a bit.  I'm off to go look at them right now...

Have an lovely day, everyone!  This is, actually, my second anniversary in the blogger world (aka, when I started my main blog).  So, it's a rather special day for moi. :)
More photos and things coming soon...

  18. Hi Hannah! I came over here to return the comment you had left on my blog, and was happy to see another photo hunt participant! Honestly, all of your photos are just gorgeous. I really pick one... Even if I tried to list my faves, I'd just be listing all of them. I definitely foresee a LOT of your entries being chosen by the judges.

    And it's nice to know that I am not the only one who loves completely out of focus photos! I took so many bokeh photos just like yours, because I love experimenting with the color and size of the sparkles. I just didn't post any of them.

    Anyway, I am now your newest follower! I can't wait to see more of your photos. :)
