Photo Scavenger Hunt

For skywatch please scroll down to the bottom of this post.

I stumbled across this blog by chance earlier this month.

Being a fan of random photos I decided to try my hand at the scavenger hunt. A lot of them are taken with my phone so a bit blurry. I will try and take my camera out and about with me more often next month.

The photos we needed to find for June were

a childhood memory - my old house. I was passing one day so stopped the car and grabbed a quick shot from the car.

a farm animal - a duck counts right?

an elephant - this one posed me a problem until last night when I was in B&Q and saw this baby bedding display - very quick rubbish shot as I felt a bit silly

architectural detail - for this one I chose Blackpool Tower. Not quite the Eiffel Tower but still an architectural delight

cheese - all month I've been meaning to take a picture and ended up leaving it until the last minute when we only have Dairylea triangles left

cutlery - my middle son has special cutlery because of his hypermobile fingers so this is those intermingled with some other bits and pieces after I washed them

night - 3:26am the time I had to get up to take my husband to work one weekend this month so he could go to a motorshow where his work were having a stand.

something beginning with z... our car - a Zafira

the view right outside your door this one I combined with the next one as the view from our door is very boring and usually just has cars but the other day a posh one was there
a wheeltrim - yes I know it is an alloy wheel but it does have a trim on the centre

something with your town's name on it - the timetable at the local train station

tree branches -we encountered these branches while we were out for a walk

and finally today for this weeks Skywatch is a seagull in a perfect vantage point to spy on people and getting ready to pounce when they get some food out at Blackpool

I love your comment on the elephant image about feeling silly taking the photo. I experience that quite often and I rush myself and then end up with, as you put it, rubbish! Why do we do that to ourselves? I think I'm often afraid that someone will yell at me inside the store for taking photos of their merchandise! I've started asking permission - and they typically say "yes". And when they say "no", I leave the store and stick my tongue out as soon as my back is turned toward them! LOL Great photos! This is a fun project...look forward to your finds for next month! We both started in the same month! Annette

I love the last shot! It reminds me of the tail of a Viking ship, maybe because the last blog I visited had a dragon in the clouds!!

Hehe! You did very well on the scavenger hunt. Love that sea gull. They sure do like to sit way, way up there, don't they?

Oh I always feel silly taking photos in public places ... people must think we're mad! That's a very nice collection you have there .... I love your night time one .... that's dedication!

I often feel a little silly taking photos in some settings. But I'm always sorry when it's done and I didn't take the shot I really wanted. It's a puzzle, I guess. You got all the photos, and that's what it's about, though. Glad I found you through this little photo exercise!

Wonderful shots! Happy sky watching.

Visiting from Skywatch, your seagull pic drew me in. I love to watch them in the sky. I'll look out for you on Scavenger Hunt, I really love that challenge.

Love your tree branches.

I know what you mean about taking photos in shops. I whipped out my camera the other month in Sainsburys to take a pic of the brussel sprouts for the hunt when we needed something green!
I'm getting more used to it now!

Yes I quite often embaress the kids by 'having to take a pic' of something - be it for the scavenger hunt or embroidery pics. Let's embrace the art of undercover store photography!

Lovely photos. I have found it easier using my phone to take photos and I don't get so embarrassed as I do when I use my camera.
