* 28 *

Well here we are at the last day of the month already, time to show you my photos for the January Scavenger Hunt.

An Abandoned Building - this is the practice tower at the old fire station in town.

A Stained Glass Window - the main window in Sunderland Minster, gorgeous colours.

A Goldfish - I was in two minds whether or not to use this as the reflective surface entry as there is actually only one fish here .

Yarn - I have to say I didn't have too much trouble with this one !

Playground Equipment - I did show you some of my other choices but this was the one I settled with ( Hub chose it )

Library - These windows are in the childrens part of our library and are 100 years old.

A Tombstone Over 100 Years Old - I was lucky enough to have quite a few to choose from in this category but went with this one as I liked the ' lost at sea ' .

My Front Door - no explanation needed here I think.

A Reflective Surface - this was also one of the choices for playground equipment.

Now I better give you a warning about the next two and my apologies in advance if I cause any offence or if you have a delicate stomach. The first photo was actually taken last Summer whilst we were in our Town library 'childrens ' art room. At the time I had no idea this was there and Hub only noticed it last week when he was looking back through the boys photos. The second ' nature' is something that me and Gabe found on our beach walk last week .

Something Out Of Place .

Nature .

Bubbles .

I really enjoyed doing this and am looking forward to next month.

Hahaha -- Very Naughty!!! Your photos are FABULOUS!!! I LOVE the tombstone and those library windows {swoon}!!! I'll get mine up tonight -- you'll laugh when you see my library one. Great minds and all. This is such a fun challenge -- thank you again for mentioning it. And btw, did you put your name on the Mr. Linky on Kathy's blog -- I didn't see it there!

What a giggle that gave me ! and my dog rolled in something like in your last picture yesterday !

A lovely set of photos - the tombstone quite chilling as hubby is a sailor. The library windows are beautiful. I also love your headder picture of the swans on the ice - beautiful.

Hello - I arrived here from the link list at postcards from the pp!

Lovely photos... it took me a good few seconds to spot the something out of place! I can't believe that was on the wall!

I found the hunt a bit of a challenge as i was indoors a lot, moping (first ever attack of winter blues!) but I enjoyed it and can't wait to see the next list!


Lyn said...

Oh well done!
The something out of place is so funny, oh dear wonder if some one got in trouble for that one!

I have just caught up on your last month. I like the idea of the scavenger hunt. I would give it a go but I am going back to school to study digital photography so had better see how I cope with that first. I was a terrible student when I went to school the first time. Love the library drawing I bet who ever put it there had a great laugh.

Harriet said...

Took me a while to spot it but then ... What a brilliant photo. Thanks for the laughs it brought!

Louise said...

I love how the tombstone is nestled amongst the fir, a lovely example. Are your egg cosy bunnies made out of that yarn? Only reading through your comments did I realise what was out of place! It looks like either Milo was totally oblivious to it, or was making a good job of pretending he hadn't noticed it! x

Haha! I have to confess to speeding through the photos a little but the something out of place picture did catch my eye and I quickly scrolled back up, yup it's a big willy! I take it it was in the local library?
