Sunday Scavenger Hunt Photos

I’m doing quite well now with the photos on Rinda’s Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt. This one I got just before went away on holiday when Ben came home for the weekend. He had been out the night before and was making up for lost sleep!
 6. Someone or something taking a nap
I then made a concerted effort whilst I was away on holiday in Sorrent to get as many of my missing ones as I could!

1. Open air market
I took this on the main street in Sorrento. We didn’t actually see many market stalls, but I am hoping this one will do!

4. Airplane
An easy one as we flew to Italy! I took plenty whilst we were waiting at the airport and liked this one the best.

5. Sunset

I was spoilt for choice here! I love the one with the silhouette, but I also like the second one where the sun is such a huge orange globe. Please help me decide which one to choose!

14. Stained glass object or mosaic
Again I was spoilt for choice with such wonderful mosaics in Herculaneum and Pompeii. My favourite was this one from the women’s bath house in Herculaneum.

However, the second one also made me giggle (quite childish I know, but there you go!).

15. Fire truck or police car
I thought I might be cheeky and use this one:
But it is not really a car! So, here is an Italian police car to make a change from an English one.
One of the substitute/bonus items is a sundial. This is not a complete sundial, but I was amazed at how preserved it was. It was in one of the temples at Pompeii.

So, quite a few ticked off the list whilst I was away! And lots of holiday photos to share with you over the next few weeks too. I obviously haven’t been doing any scrapbooking whilst I have been away and to be honest, it has been too hot to do any since we got back! So, for now, I will be sharing what we got up to in Italy and what else we have been getting up to over the summer.

Wonderful photos - I like both the sunsets but the second one just has the edge for me. Not many people w I'll have a water vehicle so that is perfect. You have seen so many wonderful things while you've been away ... Yep, I find scrapping when its sunny very challenging too!

I like the second sunset because the first one resembles a sunrise. That mosaic is fantastic!
Don't forget to come link up on Wednesday.

Some lovely finds there,Becky.

More great finds, Becky! Both sunset photos are lovely. I go back and forth about choosing one, but I think the second one is more striking. Then, on the other hand, the silhouettes on the first one are beautiful!

Agreeing that the second sunset photo is stunning - I like the sundial too. I'm off to the Pompei exhibit at the British Museum on Thursday - I'd love to visit the real place one day.

Hope Ben didn't roll onto the remote lol. Great finds, I love the orange orb but the first sunset is gorgeous. I would go with the police boat without a doubt! People are using bikes and motorcycles and it adds to some extra interest.

Hi Becky. You are keeping me in a holiday mood with those gorgeous sunsets and the pictures of Pompeii in the sunshine. Wonderful! it's good to be back and catching up with what you have been up to while I've been away. I did enjoy that post about Marti's chocolate pudding.

How wonderful to have photos for Rinda's scavenger hunt from ITALY! That's so cool, Becky! You got some great shots. :o)

Great photos - I like both sunsets, too, but the first one with the silhouette is definitely my favorite.

How neat - a sundial from Pompeii! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the pictures you took while on vacation.
