About the PhotoHunt

The Saturday PhotoHunt is a photography blog “meme” that was started in March 2006

To play, you simply post a photo on your own blog that represents the theme. These are snapshots that you might have taken on a trip, with your family, or in your home. It is important to use only your own photos.

We are not professional photographers . . . although some are. We are bloggers who are having fun with different themes and sharing our photography. You can see more PhotoHunt entries at Whistlestop PhotoHunt and on Facebook

  8. IndulgedFurries   Those are fantastic close-up photos. One of the favorite plants is my yard is Lambs Ear. I couldn't get a close-up photo of the hairy leaves. Our hairy Eddie Bear was a perfect subject for this week's theme.
