Photo Treasure Hunt ~ One Meal One Day Scavenger Hunt

This week for our Photo Treasure Hunt we were looking for items on Compassion's Compassion's One Meal One Day scavenger hunt list. The idea behind One Meal One Day is for people to skip one meal, one day (November 6th) and donate the money they would have spent on their meal to Compassion to help feed a hungry child.

I decided to use some photos from my week as well as some photos from my trip to Peru in 2010, a trip to Haiti in 2010 and a trip to Nicaragua in 2012. Some of these might be a stretch, but I found it enlightening to compare my situation with others around the world.

INSIDE MY REFRIGERATOR

This home in Peru had no refrigerator. As far as I could tell, this was all the food this family had.

NEXT WEEK: Leaves! There are so many ways this can go....piles, colors, fallen, still on trees, sizes, different types. I love taking photos of leaves in autumn - almost as much as I love taking photos of flowers in spring and summer. I think they are my fall "flowers".  Here's a transition photo for you - the leaves on my vegetable garden are shriveling up.
