Photo Hunt 9

This is my third photo hunt and I have to say, this one was the hardest. 
But I got it finished... barely. :D

 Here are my humble contributions!

1. A flag that represents you (your town, state, country, team, etc.)
My daughter took this picture (I know...) and I really loved it, so I told her I would use it.
2. Something comfortable
I am not sure there is anything more comfortable for my husband than his favorite jeans.  Even though they are ripped (and ripping more every time he wears them), he will not retire them.
 3. Something in season
Does relaxing in the shade ever go out of season?
4. Feet
The feet of my two little girls. They just started kindergarten and I know it won't be long before I look back at this picture and miss these little feet.
 5. Repetition
Ducks at the fair. Need I say more.
 6. Culture or ethnicity
This fellow rides a motorcycle to a retirement center across the street from my house.  He waits on his bike every morning for breakfast.  We've gotten to know him and I learned this summer he is Native American.  He is super proud of his heritage.
 7. Contrast
We have new little kitties. black and white and brown...  His face is so cute.
 8. An indulgence
The girls charmed Grandpa into forfeiting some of his stash of ice cream.
 9. A macro or closeup
EVERY TIME the girls drink red pop, I have to take a picture of their tongues!
 10. Something masculine
Work boots.
 11. Something feminine
Princess crown.  These are EVERYWHERE in my house!
 12. Light
Perfect late summer early fall picture.
 13. Eco-friendly
This one really took a while. Yesterday I got groceries and these are the bags my things were packed in! Score!
 14. Business
This veggie/fruit roadside stand has been there as long as I can remember.
 15. An arrow
Fair Time... I took this picture and THEN noticed the arrows! Winner!
 16. Something wet
Strawberry Lemonade shake-ups at the fair.  There is nothing better!
17. Something dry
Ahhh... dry corn. Fall is coming!

18. Butterflies
 This little guy was on the front of a truck when we went to the movies. I made my sister-in-law give me her phone to snap this picture... (BTW, we watched Scott Pilgrim and it was AWESOME!)
 19. Heart-Shaped Clouds
Hard category. Got lucky with this shot the first day I looked for one!

 20. Strength
Big tractors... 'nough said!

  5. I love your feet and repetition shots, but they're all great! What is it with husbands and their jeans? Mine is the same way and will wear his probably until they fall off.
