Photo Scavenger Hunt - October

Hello again

The tenth month of the year is almost at an end. Just two more months left in 2011.

Here are my efforts for this months Photo Scavenger Hunt;


Candlelit - fairly self explanatory. A pressie in a recent blog swap :) Smells lovely too.

 Black cat - this was on a card I received in last years Autumn Swap - all hand-drawn and coloured.

 Something eerie - an abandoned molar left as a subtle hint that despite his almost 14 years of age - little son still hopes the tooth fairy might visit! Actually she just hands over £1 and he disposes of the tooth as he sees fit.

 Something golden - Aldeburgh chips - best eaten from the paper and covered in vinegar.

 Graffiti/Street art - not something we see much around here luckily. So here's my cast on the morning of removal with instructions!! 

 Heritage - the Moot Hall in Aldeburgh - built in 1520. It now houses the offices of the Town Council and a Museum.

 Crunchy leaves - those fallen from the giant climbing rose at the side of the house.

 Fog/Mist - my favourite nursery rhyme when I was about 2 or 3. I still have my nursery rhyme book - its almost 41 years old now.

The book is Hilda Boswell's Treasury of Nursery Rhymes - apparently given to me Christmas 1970. More pics next time.

 Pumpkin - pre-carving with our little ceramic pumpkin which holds a tealight.

 River - the River Alde taken from the seawall @ Aldeburgh (same day as those chips were being eaten).

Witch's Hat / Broomstick - both actually on my little witch that hangs above my desk. I bought her from the Museum of Witchcraft in Boscastle a few summers ago. (eyeballs courtesy of Picnik).

Sunset - I cheated on this one. I've not been able to catch a sunset this month - the house faces the wrong way. So this picture is one of a sunset I took on our hols in Dorset in August.

Thanks Kathy - I look forward to Novembers list - trying to pre-guess what might be on there.

Hi, just linked to your blog via Just Hang on a Minute. I think I have the same nursery rhyme book as you! The one I remember the most from childhood, poring over the pictures for hours. Mine is falling apart but I still read it with my children from time to time. I find the pictures very atmospheric and even now, comfortingly familiar.

Great photos! The tooth is eeerie! I was in Boscastle last month and saw the Museum of Witchcraft:)

Country Girl said...

Not surprisingly, we have the same river but I changed my heritage one of the Moot Hall after talking to you!

Sarah said...

I've been following your blog on and off for a few months now, but today felt compelled to comment. What is the title of your nursery rhyme book? The reason I ask is that I absolutely adore that particular poem ... sung by Steeleye Span!

Happy Halloween!

love your Aldeburgh based shots, I've been there loads and am fascinated by that old building (as well as that minute detached house, you must have seen it, TINY!)

Sandra said...

Eileen said...

A great set of pics. I think the chips are my favoutite!

Claire said...

tasty looking chips, and the story with the molar pic made me smile

Jane said...

I seem to be drawn to all the creepy photos in this months hunt, your molar is truly inspired but the contrast or colours in your candle one is my favourite

Aldeburgh fish and chips - though I'm not sure he'd admit it, for Mr P it's probably one of the main reasons for our move! Lovely photos. Cx

Lisa said...

Great selection, though I think the golden chips is just the best!

Alex said...

I enjoyed looking at your photos, they're great. I like that eyes frame you created for your witches photo, very spooky.

I recognise the front of that Nursery Rhyme book, I'm sure we had it as well.

Great photos.
