Photo Scavenger Hunt - August

Good afternoon

Here we are again - another month has passed by very quickly. Quite an eventful too. Here are my efforts for this month in the order they were taken - as usual there's some artistic licence used for a few!!

Something Ancient - I don't you can get much older than Stonehenge - we stopped here on way down to Dorset.

Boat - on the beach at Sidmouth

Mountain - of washing from the holiday!

 Bread - homemade bread rolls

 Something Bizarre - a scooter riding OAP - dressed as a Nun complete with blacked up face - just part of the local carnival parade! The theme was Movies and this lady was Whoopi Goldberg in Sister Act.

 Funfair - proper old fashioned fun, Gallopers.

 Market - the seafront carnival market at Aldeburgh Carnival - it gets bigger & bigger each year.

 Street food - no carnival would be complete without a cone of hot chips with plenty of vinegar.

 A Fountain - actually a fountain pen - a 21st birthday pressie from an old boss.

 Sport - big sons badminton raquet & case.

 Fabric - my scraps drawer - one day I want to use these to make a hexy quilt.

 Picnic - every meal at the moment is a sofa picnic!!

I've seen the list for September and look forward to seeing how I can improvise those from the comfort of my sofa!! 

Off to see how others have done this month.

See you soon

Love your photos for August, especially the boat at Sidmouth. It would make a good subject for a painting.
I hope you are going o.k. with your leg in plaster.
Take care,
Anne xx

I've been avoiding this scavenger thingy (presuming it;s open to anyone - or am i just inviting myself??) but it's just too tempting. Off to find out more, and find out WHAT HAS HAPPENED!
