This is my first week participating in the weekly Scavenger hunt photo challenge that is posted each Sunday and is hosted by Ashley Sisk at Ramblings and Photos. Each week Ashley given 5 words and the challenge is to, through each photographers interpretation, put those words into a photograph. I really love seeing all the different interpretations of each word by blog hopping to other sites. Everyone does such a great job!
The rules are simple:
1. Anyone can participate.
2. You're encouraged to take five new photos this week for the challenge.
3. If you get stumped, you may use one photo from your archive
4. Link up on Sunday (or Monday at the latest) - you can use the new button.
5. Have fun!
The words for this weeks challenge are:
1. RedEastern Idaho State Fair. I have been going to this event for as long as I can count. I am not so much into the rides, I much prefer the exhibits, food, animals, food, equipment and did I mention FOOD. Red is for an antique Farmall tractor, I actually remember driving one of these. Boy did I just date myself.
This is a stone (rock) Sheppard. It sits on the edge of a mountain top and stands almost 10ft tall. Story goes that when the sheep herders bought the sheep onto the summer range the herders would start the sheep up the mountain then they (the herder) would ride to the top and wait for the sheep. Why they were there they would pile rock, one on top of the other, forming the stone Sheppard. Once completed, BTW, took days, the sheep herder didn't have to watch the sheep, he could take a nap perched at the base of the stone Sheppard. Thus leaving the sheep watch to the stone Sheppard. As long as there was something bigger and meaner looking than any predictors, the sheep were safe.
