A Photographic Scavenger Hunt

Many times, I have looked through the Scavenger Hunt Sunday photograph challenges enjoying the creativity of others and trying to decide how I would interpret the prompts.  Today, I'm wondering no more as I join the fun.  The five prompts for this week were: simple, grain, transportation, stitch, and bubbles.

1. Simple

The shadows of our garden seedlings as seen through our sheers. 
I like the simple lines and shapes of the plants and the texture of the sheers,
but what I particularly enjoy is how the box
appears curved due to way the sheer hangs.

2.  Grain

dried wheat in our kitchen

3.  Transportation

Recently, as in last week, my parents put up this weather vane.
They've had the weather vane for years! 
I had taken the photograph to commemorate the moment,
but the train works well for transportation.

4.  Stitch

This photograph is actually my second third attempt at 'stitch.'
I originally started out trying to photograph a favorite table cloth.
When that didn't work out, I tried a poignant photograph of a stitched doily
with an old wedding photograph on top. 
I was thinking of a play on stitch...stitched together fabric
and stitched together lives in marriage.
Since that didn't work out either, I give you...
a pair of old jeans.

  5. Bubbles

Thought I'd try to capture the bubbles in this hand blown glass pitcher.
Can you see them along the top?
