June Scavenger Photos

...and there goes June!

Here is my selection of photos for the June Scavenger Hunt that I have linked up to Kathy's site, Postcards from the P.P. where you can see links to other participants' photos. :)

Local signage:

An elephant statue that I came upon by chance:

My original wheel trim choice was this one I spotted on a 1956 Chevrolet Bel Air:

...but when I drove to the recycle depot and saw this array of awry contraptions, this photo wheeled to the forefront (the hazard warning seems to have come too late!)

On one of my walks, I noticed this architectural detail filling a triangular area under a roof overhang on a home:

Rounds and blocks of Parmigiano cheese at a local market:

Just after sunset, heading into night, from my sundeck:

There were so many choices for tree branches, but a corvid insisted on this particular one:

Cutlery in a tree? Yes, someone made me a wind chime from silver cutlery, and I hung it in the cherry tree. As an aside, some cherries are usually ripe and ready to pick on July 1...this year they are hard green marbles, so possibly the cutlery will be put to the test! ;)

I racked my brain for a childhood memory photo, until I remembered the Blackpool Rock I bought on a visit to the UK. I also remember Edinburgh Rock as a child.

The farm animal I chose, was none other than Billy Goat Gruff ~ on his bridge...

Photobucket


The first choice for the "Z" photo was this pattern found on a painted zebra:

Photobucket


...but on a recent walk, I saw this fence shaped like Z's zig-zagging along the trail.

and finally the view from my front door to the right ~ a colourful splash of flowering plants.

I do enjoy these photo scavenger hunts as I observe my surroundings with more focus and end up noticing sights I wouldn't normally see.

How about joining in for the July hunt? You might be pleasantly surprised by what you find.


On to July's Scavenger Hunt:

red, white and blue
flip flops
ice cream
strawberries
a flag
fields
celebration
sea shells
stars
stripes
a kite
something that makes you happy (but not a person or animal!)

  1. That was fun -- looking around your world :-) How gorgeous your garden is looking with everything in bloom. I hope your cherries do well this year and that you'll get to have some before the bandit steals them!

  3. A great set of photos, I especially like night and the cutlery!

    I am also noticing more and making a point of looking out for things more than I used too in case I spot good things for the hunt!

  7. You do start to look everywhere when out and about for something that 'fits'. I love your zig zag and that 50's car.

  9. Love, love, LOVE your take on the Z photo! Very unique and clever! This was my first month of participation...and I totally enjoyed it...for all the reasons you listed! Sometimes we need to look beyond our noses...and keep our eyes open! Have a good month. See you in August! Annette

  12. I had never heard of a photo-scavenger hunt. Will pass on the idea to Son who has taken a great interest in photography.

    I especially love the strong colours of your photos....must be the light. In Scotland i think there would be a slight mistiness in them, to say the least!
