Photo Scavenger Hunt - Marchn 2015

For this months scavenger hunt, I set myself the goal of trying to get all photos from my time spent on the farm with mum in Western Australia.  As always, thanks to Greenthumb at Made with Love for organising such a fun activity.

Circle

An old wagon wheel.

Card
These two photos are of Mum's card making room.  Displayed are hand made cards she has received and hung for inspiration when making her own cards.



Window

A window on the old house my father grew up in.

Art


A painting I did in 2008 and gave to Mum.  I took it outside and propped it on an old bench seat to take the photo.


 Skyline

Dusk one evening on the farm in Doodlakine, Western Australia.


A favourite word.


I don't have a favourite word but as the farm is very dear to my heart, this photo of an old tractor seems to suit the theme.

Movement

 
The wind was moving the leaves of this eucalypt tree.


Bathroom

The old bathroom in the old house my Dad grew up in.  Hot water was obtained by lighting a chip heater which can be  partially seen on the left of the photo.

An old hook, shoe polishing brush and Gilette razor dispensor, all found in the old bathroom.

Car

 

This old car was in use many, many years ago.  Before it was placed in it's final resting place, when not a running vehicle, my sister and I would play for hours pretending we were driving.  The old gear stick, starter button, hand windscreen wiper and steering wheel all got a good work out.

Plate

The china painting on this plate is the work of my grandma.

 Something you made.
 
This is a card I made for dad for Fathers Day, another one Mum has displayed in her card room.

 Whatever you want.

Mum's beautiful little rescue cat named Cara.

Looking forward to April's list of photos.

What a creative family you come from no wonder you are so artistic yourself. Love your fabulous collection of photos set against the stunning WA landscape.

Super photos - I like the one of your own painting and also the gold of the sunset in skyline. The old bathroom is fascinating and the little cat is lovely:)

Lovely set of photos, love the bath, I was looking for something like that to take a picture of, mainly in farmers fields for the horses to drink out of. I like the car as well..

Love, love, love your painting, you're so talented. Really enjoyed your photos especially hearing about your very own Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and would love to see more of where your father grew up, the glimpses of the house were fascinating xx

It's so interesting seeing other parts of the world through the Hunt, particularly when they're so different to the UK. Loved the atmosphere you created with all the photos of old and decaying things. Particularly loved wheel, window, car and bathroom. You're a very talented artist. x

This collection of photos is wonderful! I love seeing a part of the world that is so different from where I live. Loved the photos of your father's old home and wonder if you will show more in the future. That bath is great, and similar to the tub we had in a rented farm house when I first moved away from home (minus the fancy heater!). Wendy

Hi Anne! I love the collection of photos that you put together this month! For me it's a wonderful glimpse into a part of the world I have never seen. Thank you for sharing your beloved farm! You must get your artistic talent from your mum! And how is it that kitties aways look so comfortable, relaxed, and self-assured? Have a happy Easter!

So enjoyed your choices for the month. That skyline rocks. The Bathroom? Love that. And that kitty cat? Too content.

Truly had fun seeing your hunt.
