Photo Scavenger Hunt 1.

I SO love taking photos!  My camera comes everywhere with me and I don't need much of an excuse to use it, so I was excited to sign up for this summers Photo Scavenger Hunt, organised by Rinda

I'm doing quite well with my list, and had an unexpected surprise recently.  After dropping off Summer,  my daughter phoned to say she'd just seen a horse drawn carriage at our village church.  Well, since my  granddaughter LOVES horses we just had to run across!  I thought Summer was going to burst with excitement as she dragged me down the road and not only did we see the horses, but also the bride.  Two on my list for my scavenger hunt!

In my excitement I forgot to take a photo of the church!  But not to worry, because 
in the next village there was also a statue of an angel.

Other ransom photos were also taken locally 

 and more photos added when we attended the 'Opera in the Orchard'.  

One of my favourite photos taken was of the orchestra, but while on holiday I took another photo of someone playing a musical instrument that I liked even more.  I added a trail, and on other days out there were more photos to tick off my list .

So!  Progress is being made and I am having great fun.  In putting this together I realise there have been missed opportunities, but time is on my side and my camera is ready to go!  Today Rinda is hosting a mid-summer link up party.  A great chance to catch up and to see what photos others have taken.  If you would like to do this too, here's the link.  And it may not be too late for you to join in, if you are not already doing so!

  3. super pictures, loving the horses and also the mobile library. Just popping over from the scavenger hunt catch up

  4. You're doing really well....some great your musical instrument photo.

  8. Love the Carriage and Horses, I nearly used the opposite one to yours a Horse drawn hearse I may still add it now

  9. The two in one bride and horse picture is wonderful! (and of course I love any photo of a library)

  10. My goodness but you got so many of the items on the list, it won't take any time to complete it! Your photos are beautiful and very interesting--especially, the one of the wall with barbed wire on the top.

  11. Great photos - how fun that you were able to capture the horses & a bride! I especially like the shadow of the tree.
