Photos for Rinda

I was counting on adding a few more photos to check off the list for Rinda's Photography Scavenger Hunt while Carrie and I were in California last week. Thanks to my sweet step-dad {Rod}, I have a few to share with you today.

My parents live in the middle of California's San Joaquin Valley ~ an agricultural utopia. I knew it would be fairly easy to find a roadside-stand-selling-something {item #4}. When we stopped so I could take a photo I asked the roadside-stand-selling-something-guy if he'd mind if I took a photo. I didn't realize until I got home and uploaded my pictures that he was actually posing for the shot. Haha - makes me love the photo even more!

I didn't feel right asking for the favor without purchasing something, so we bought some little tomatoes and these strawberries. {Carrie said they tasted like candy.}


Of course they were yummy ~ they were grown right here, behind his roadside-stand-selling-something, and were probably picked that morning.


After that we drove into town because Rod knew where to find a fountain {item #9}. This one is in front of the cancer treatment center where my mom first started treatments over a year ago:


And then an outdoor stairway {item #19}...


From where I stood, I could see this stairway and four others. Yes, I took photos of all of them, but this shot was my favorite.  :o)

And with that I have found 13 of the prompts and have eight to go.
The remaining eight will take some creativity on my part.
I'm thinking...

What a fantastic stand, and the owner has a really nice smile! I love the perspective on the stairs. I'm only one ahead of you on my finds - 7 left. But I know where to find them I think. I'm happy that Ron enjoyed going out to hunt with you.

That roadside stand is a great one. Over here, it's only potatoes we get for sale on the side of the road! Oh, and a few strawberries when the sun is really shining

Love the guy at the roadside stand, but the photo of the staircase is my favorite! Great finds. I have two to go. I'm quite sure I'll get one of them on this trip, but the other one is going to take some creativity.

Strawberries don't come any fresher than that! Great photos. I wonder how Rod explained that he needed to pose for a scavenger hunt photo?!
