Photo Scavenger Hunt - June's Pictures

Here's this month's selection of pictures for the June Photo Scavenger Hunt. I had no idea what was going to feature when I initially read the list, but I hope you like the variety and liberties I've taken to cover the themes.

"A Farm Animal"
Gobble Gobble! 
Although they aren't the most attractive birds, I was fascinated by the array of colour on its face and neck.

"Tree Branches"
Taken at Hatfield House by their children's play area.

"Architectural Detail"
One thing I love about Rugby is the variety architecture...there are some lovely buildings, but you have to look up to see them.

"A childhood memory, toy or food"
Pop Rocks!  We have an old fashion sweetshop in town and recently I took the kids and let them buy £1 worth of sweets.  We came home with this, some edible money and some dip dabs.

"An Elephant"
Taken at the Bramble Patch during their exhibition earlier this month.

How about this lunch bag!?  Spied the cutlery and thought it was a good take on the subject :o)

Taken while standing in the backyard.  My DD1 wasn't overly impressed as we were watching TV when I spied the moon through the curtains and abruptly stopped what we were doing to take pictures!

Stilton anyone?  Not my favourite, but a suitable option on a cheese board.

"The view right outside your door"
The back door...
This is the view into the garden...a lovely place to sit and have lunch.

"Something with your towns name on it"
Three guesses where I live and the first two don't count :o)

"A Wheel Trim"
I was trying to be clever with this...and also trying to avoid taking a picture of my car's feeble wheel trims!

"Something beginning with Z"

Until next time...

YankeeQuilter said...

I like the zippers! They are all fun though...

Leanne said...

Your usual great collection. I agree with the turkey snap he really should do something about his skin LOL. LOVE the moon snap.

Thimbleanna said...

Fantastic photos -- as always Jane! LOVE the moon. I'll be trying the rest of my life to get a good moon shot. And Zippers -- Duh! The obvious Z choice and it didn't even come up on my list LOL. I have one more shot then I might actually post on time this month!

Thimbleanna said...

And btw...that turkey is FANTASTIC!!!!

Shirley said...

Fabulous Jane as ever. Love that turkey. He looks like his brains are on the outside.

Liz said...

Lovely pictures as usual Jane, I particularly like the moon picture and I luuve stilton, I don't buy it very often because I eat it all ;-)

Louise said...

fantastic photos!

I think there is amazing architecture everywhere if you look for it - I always look up where I go (and down, and all around!)

I like your take on cutlery and the wheel trim - I had a toy wheel trim too but then I changed it for the one in my post!

There's an old fashioned sweet shop in my local town and I like to go and get popping candy from time to time, just for fun!

Lovely picture of the moon!

I haven't seen your scavenger hunts before, I'm going to have a nosey at previous months now! I have a list of scavengers on my blog - a link just below my blog header called photo scavenger hunt - I will add you there, hope that's ok!

Sandra said...

I love your photos Jane - favourites are the turkey and the moon, would love to know how you got that shot so clearly?

Helen said...

Gorgeous photos Jayne, turkeys are the ugliest birds arn't they, but I know what you mean, cause you can't stop looking at them ?
Love Helen

Little Blue Mouse said...

Great photos, how on earth did you get the moon one?

mad about bags said...

super photos i love the car one and the zips. I remember pop rocks too!

"Petunia Pill" said...

THAT turkey is amazing! What a fabulous photo! And I also love your "night" photo. Regarding not being happy with you for stopping all to capture the shot...hey! A photographer has to do what a photographer has to do! =) A lovely, entertaining group of photos for this month's challenges! Can't wait to see what you come up with for the July challenges!
