Photo Hunt Challenge - All done!

I decided to sign up for the August Photo Hunt Challenge.  I figured since it was a whole month, it would be easy to get all the required things.

It wasn't as easy as I thought.  ;)  I think I got most of the pics finished the last few days of August!

So, here we go!

1.  A flag that represents you.  I AM CANADIAN!  :)

2.  Something comfortable.  This is the flannel sheet that's in my tent trailer.  It's pretty comfortable, especially on a cool night.

3.  Something in season.  The apples on our tree are ready!  We've already started canning applesauce and applebutter.  :)

4.  Feet.  These feet belong to my oldest daughter and youngest son.  They love wading in the creek!

5.  Repetition.

6.  Culture.  Canadian culture definitely includes maple syrup.  ;)  I really like the dark, maple-y syrup best.

7.  Contrast.  This is a lump of brown sugar, and chunks of salt.  My hubby works in a salt mine, and he brought these home.  The chunks of salt are a contrast, too.  One is clear, and one is full of dark rock.  So, salt & sweet, dark and light.  Lots of contrast!

8.  An indulgence.  We have a lot of allergies in our house.  These "Enjoy Life" cookies are a real indulgence!  And tasty, too.

9.  A close-up.  My youngest son's eye.  Beautiful, isn't it?  :)

10.  Something masculine.  Had to be a tool.  :D

11.  Something feminine.  I did have a pic of nail polish, but I decided to go with my daughter's hair band instead.  She wore it to my sister's wedding.

12.  Light.  There were different ways to interpret light.  I thought a few feathers fit the bill.  :)
13.  Eco-friendly.  I've posted this picture before, but I like it so much I'm using it for this challenge.  :)

14.  Business.  This one kills me.  It's my youngest son and his best friend/cousin.  They hung out in the porta-potty at our family reunion, take care of 'business'.  ;)  I'm sure they were only squeezing out drops, but it gave them an excuse to go in.

15.  An arrow.  One of my kids favourite games.  I miss the snakes.  ;)

16.  Something wet.  Rocks in our creek.

17.  Something dry.  Chalk is pretty dry, right?  ;)  So is the wood that it's sitting on.

18.  Butterflies.  I could NOT get a picture of a butterfly.  I saw a few, but none of them would land long enough for me to get a picture.  So, I remembered that I have a butterfly pin!  Hopefully it counts.  :)

19.  Heart-shaped clouds.  I was taking pictures of a sunset, and once I got it into the computer, noticed one of the clouds looked like a heart!  I added a touch of pink to make it stand out.  Love this.

20.  I had a few ideas for strength, but not enough time.  So, this picture of my brothers will have to do.  There's a lot of strength there - both physical, mental and spiritual.  Love you guys.

So there you go!  That's my interpretation of this month's Photo Hunt Challenge.  Please check out all the links here.  I'm currently away on vacation, but I'll be back to check out the other entries next week. 

See you then!
