I said that I’d split the scavenger hunt between three posts but I’ve changed my mind because:
- Life’s too short to write 3 posts when one will do
- It’s about time I learnt how to set up a photo gallery in a post
- You don’t want to mess about clicking between posts
- I seem to get less comments on earlier posts when I post close together (do you find that?)
There! Four good reasons.
I thought I’d struggle with some photos and some took longer than they should have done due to my amazing forgettery. Some I couldn’t find, so I got creative and managed the lot.
I thought I’d struggle with the pier since we had no seaside trip planned. But then we decided to take a River Cruise in London and that sorted that. I managed a snap of the dragon marking the border between The City of London and The City of Westminster from the top of the tour bus – not my best shot but it was that or the patterned border on Puddle Duck’s dress.
Roadside stand was tricky. There’s a few greasy cafe type stalls on the way to work but I never have time to stop. This one’s a bit of a cheat – it is inside the entrance to a shop, but it is a stand selling something.
Historical landmarks and churches are a bit easy when you visit London – I couldn’t choose which ones, so you have a few to view. We visited the local library but I didn’t take a photo. I did however sort out my home library so you have a photo of that – oh come on, it doesn’t actually say PUBLIC library.
The Aunt’s sister got married so that sorted the bride. I took Puddle Duck and two friends to see Brave. Taking a photo when you are trying to keep an eye on a 6, 7 and 8 YO drops down off the priorities list, so I went back to take a poster of a movie this week (it’s the one Puddle Duck wants to see next).
The stairway is outdoors I promise. It’s a gazebo type place made of cork outside the Serpentine Gallery in Hyde Park. The swing from a tree had us stumped (pardon the pun) so we got creative and made one.
Puddle Duck chose Jessica Ennis as her national symbol. And mine? A Union Jack teapot in M&S – you can’t get more British than that surely?
I also found a couple of four leaf clovers to photograph as a bonus item incase my work arounds were disallowed.
I can only finish with a big thank-you to Rinda for setting us all such a great challenge.
