June Photo Scavenger Hunt

 

Apologies but due to illness and a holiday to Marrakesh I’m late posting this month. However better late then never so below are my jubilee inspired scavenger hunt pics. I managed to take all of my jubilee pics in our local shopping centre during the Diamond Jubilee weekend. A lot of the streets and shops were decked out for the celebrations.


Diamond

This is the Peter Jones Diamond Jubilee photo display.

Crown

I found this crown on a t-shirt in Debenhams.


Bunting

Due to the wind  it was really hard to take a picture of any of the bunting hung outside. Instead I took of snap of the bunting hanging inside my local Topshop.


Majesty

In Sainsbury’s there were some Queen and DoE masks. Here’s a pic of me pretending to be the her Majesty the Queen of England.

May’s photo scavenger hunt

I’ve just started to take part in Kathy’s photo scavenger hunt over at http://postcardsfromthepp.blogspot.co.uk. Below are the photo’s that I took for May’s challenge

.

Good things

A rainbow after a storm.

Small packages

Today I visited a local craft fair where I found these small origami boxes which have been created by Sarah Luckman.

Fragrance

A fragrant wind swept flower bed at the school where the craft fair was held.

Station

This is my local Police station. A lot of the Police stations near my previous homes have been large, unattractive, concreate buildings so this building seems really beautiful in comparison.

Nose

It’s hard to miss the nose on this 9ft 6inch tall rabbit by Sophie Ryder at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park.

Front page

Two of the projects I have led at work this month have ended up in the college wide newsletter. It’s nice when your efforts are appreciated.

Nine

Another picture taken at the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. This sculpture, Trees by Dennis Oppenheim, contains nine random objects including a fence, a chair and a dog house.

Beverage

Pepsi is my favourite drink.I’m trying to cut down on the amount of rubbish I eat so have taken to buying the mini 250ml cans.

Currency

We use a large whisky bottle as our change jar. This picture was taken by looking down the barrel of the jar.

It was taken with my new camera before being cropped using the the Instagram app.

Historic

Remains of the 13th century stone castle at Sandal. The castle is best known for the famous Battle of Wakefield which was fought nearby in 1460 during the War of the Roses. Richard, Duke of York was killed in the battle.

Yellow

The council are re-routing and re-laying the roads near my flat. I was aiming for a picture of the yellow road sign, to let sign, work man’s jacket, the telephone box advertisement and the van but just as I was about to take this photo a yellow car stopped at the traffic lights to make the picture even more yellowy.

Do you see what I see?

Can you see the girrafes head?
