Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro on Monday (8/20/12)

Welcome to another edition of the photo Scavenger Hunt and I Heart Macro!  Enjoy!

1) Forest
A little dose of nature in Milwaukee.

2) Morning Light
Light coming in our front room in the morning.  I took the picture through our French doors.

3) Touch
I took a short trip to Chicago this week for a concert. I knew that the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park would be a perfect place to get the photo for this prompt.

4) Newspaper
I really want to write an article about newspaper gift wrap options and want a few original photos for it. I thought that this would be a good opportunity to try those rolled paper flowers that you see everywhere online.

5) Coffee or Tea

I have shot a handful of both coffee and tea pictures for articles this summer, but I got inspired to try something new for the prompt this time.

I'm using this for my I Heart Macro shot this week.

Here's your weekly dose of Angel this week. The past couple months, she's been hanging out by this basement pole a lot and often keeps her paws on it as though some one is going to take it away.
