Photo Scavenger Hunt - June

As I have not been able to go out and about as usual this week I decided to send Leigh and Judith off to do some scavenging for the Photo Scavenger Hunt and here is what they came up with :

Childhood Memory - this book was a present for Leigh on her 6th birthday a long long time ago but it has been her favourite book ever since. She especially liked the wise fox (not a schnauzer?) who tells the little prince 'You become responsible forever for what you have tamed' and 'It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is is invisible to the eye.'

 Something with your town's name on it. We don't live in a town but here is a local sign with our village name. There are quite a lot of owls round here - we hear them hooting at night outside the window.

An elephant - or 4 wooden elephants which Judith brought back from a holiday in India.

Wheel Trim - on Leigh's Corsa.

Architectural detail - this is the emblem of Selby Abbey and is set in one of the walls. Selby is about 5 miles from our village - it is a very ancient town and the abbey was founded in 1069 by Benedict of Auxerre after he saw 3 swans on Selby Lake and thought they represented the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

Cheese - some of Judith's favourite cheeses.

Cutlery - the 'best silver cutlery' for special occasions!

A Night Shot - taken in the back garden last night. A scary stone owl by the solar lamp in the lavender.

Something beginning with Z - it had to be Zeta ( also called Little Z) - she crossed the Rainbow Bridge two years ago this week but is always remembered with love.

 Tree branches - these are in one of our silver birch trees in the back garden.

 A farm animal - a sheep in the field by Castle Howard, Yorkshire.

 View from outside the door - at the back of our house. This is probably the best picture because you can see me and Aoife (well just about).
Here's one last picture of me too - I hope to blogging about more of my adventures soon!


  1. This sounds like a fun and interesting photography project...

  2. Hi! We missed this post, must have been when the Mum was in hospital. We've just enjoyed looking at all the photo's, we keep meaning to do it but SHE's never organised enough. What a lovely big back garden you have, plenty of room for the zoomies there!
