Photo Scavenger Hunt - January


Here are my photos for the January photo scavenger hunt. 

1.  An abandoned building
 This is the house my Dad grew up in and is quite close to the house I grew up in. 
2.  Stained glass
One of a series of stained glass windows in my local library.  Sorry about the light in the photo, this was the best shot I could get.

3.  Goldfish
Oh dear, I'm afraid I've taken a few liberties here.  I knew there was no way I would find a goldfish to photograph so I drew one and took a photo of my illustration.  I hope it's acceptable.

4.  Yarn
5.  Playground
This playground is at the end of my street and Miss C. and Miss. G. use to play here when they were little.

6.  Library
My local library where I took the photo of the stained glass window.

7.  A tombstone over 100 years old.

I took this photo this afternoon in 40 degree heat.  :)


8.  My front door

9.  A reflective surface (not a mirror)
Coffee percolator reflected in granite on the kitchen bench.

10.  Something out of place
A shopping trolley at the end of my street.  The camera strap is also out of place, in front of the lens.  Ooops.

11.  Nature
A lone salmon gum in Western Australia on my parents farm.

12.  Bubbles
Bubbles in a perfect beverage for a hot day, beer.


I've had so much fun putting these together.

Nice shots. I love looking at old grave stones. They say so much, but not the whole story.

It's so nice to find someone from Australia taking part in the Scavenger Hunt. We've been over twice now, and have loved every minute of the experience. Quite envious of the weather too, although it has to be said I can't take it too hot! Looking forward to seeing your next set of photos. x

PS. There's a loveheart in that beer!
