Rhinda’s 2015 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt

Today I am linking up with Rinda with her Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt.

So are you joining in this year? I joined in last year and had such great fun! The whole family ended up taking part, with Ben finding me a mascot in Seattle and Penny finding me a waterfall at Niagara. Hugh was also a great help whilst we were on holiday, pointing out suitable photo opportunities.

I have made a start and  my first photo opportunity, which was, suitably enough, for item number 1, was a bouquet of flowers. I was in Tesco's shopping and noticed all the bouquets sitting there just waiting for me to photograph them!
 I then left work and was given two bouquets, so now I have a choice!

My next find was whilst I was sitting on a bench outside the station waiting to meet Penny. I glanced up and realised I could see the British Telecom building with a cellular tower/satellite dishes on it.
It's not the best photo, so if I find better I will replace it.

My third find was on the way to college. I got off the bus and realised that the bus stopped just before a set of traffic signals.
My fourth and fifth finds were both on the way/at Hever Castle on Sunday. I turned round in the car to find Penny plugged into her iPod and playing games on her phone - she caught me looking and smiled!
And finally, on my way out of Hever Castle I suddenly realised that there was a wonderful ticket booth.
I do have one extra photo, which I took at Tropical Wings. It is of what we, in the UK, call a tortoise. Will it do for the turtle on the list?
I will be adding my photos to the tab at the top of this page, which is where I had my 2014 photos, as well as adding them as posts to my blog. I will probably continue to post them to Instagram too, where you can find me as beckyg1 – please ask me to add you if you are not already a follower. There is also a Facebook page, which is very active.

So, if you haven’t taken part, what is it all about? Well, the best idea is for you to hop on over to Rinda’s blog where you will find all the details.

All it leaves me to say is have fun with your photography over this summer!

I think I like the story behind all the pictures just as much as I like the pictures themselves :)

Oh, and lovely flowers for leaving work

You have some great captures....I'm really behind.

Some great finds! I love your Tesco bouquets! I think you should persevere with the turtle. You never know what you might find!

You've done really well with these - I admire how they seem to be near the forefront of your mind so that you suddenly realise if you press the shutter you'll have another one snagged. I think I need to commit them to memory!

Karen said...

I just don't think there should be any distinction between a tortoise and a turtle! Looks good to me; you've got a good start!

I've seen a few notes about the difference between turtles & tortoises, but since I found a different kind (those chocolate ones!) I didn't have to wonder which was which! Great finds for this year's hunt.

Like Sian, I enjoyed your stories for each of the photos very much! And, about the turtle/tortoise - I didn't give that much thought but now that it's been mentioned . . .

You caught such a lovely smile on Penny's face, and that is a really charming ticket booth.

I had the same discussion about turtles/tortoise :)

Great start Becky. What a cute looking ticket booth.

You're off to a great start. Every year I say I'll join in and then the summer is over before I know it :( x
