Photography Scavenger Hunt update

2014 Scavenger Hunt
I'm joining in with Rinda's photography Scavenger Hunt again this year......a bit late in starting......but hoping to catch up as the summer progresses......21 in total to find....8 captured.....13 to go.
2. a garden gnome.....he must be a bit of an age....as I was a little surprised to see him 'wanting to play' in an antique shop.....cute.....rather than creepy.
 5. a rack of postcards.....on a day out at Sissinghurst Castle.
7. a rural landscape......a Kent field


8. a tattoo on a person.....this was an easy one.....in theory......DD1 is a lover of tattoos.....but not such a great lover of me photographing her.....she was finally persuaded....I really like this tattoo.....I think it's cool......I just wish it wasn't on her!!!
12. a mascot......on the knitted boat at the 'Follow the Herring' Exhibition
13. a sunrise....at silly o'clock in the southern UK!!
 14. a parade......or more accurately......a parade of pirates
21. a photo of you with something representing the season......I noticed a few UK participants used a raincoat or wellington boots or umbrella for this one.....I might normally have joined you......but in this part of the UK rain is so elusive that we've almost forgotten what it looks like....my garden is in a serious sulk......and ice cream or Factor 50 is definately more appropriate.....though tomorrow is our town's carnival....so, of course, rain is forecast!!
I'm thinking that a juggler may prove a bit elusive.....birds on a wire aren't that common round here either....probably due to a lack of wires!! A bit of lateral thinking may be needed.
If you'd like to see what everyone else is capturing......Rinda has a monthly link up here.

Super funky tat! And I also like your sunrise.

Karen said...

You may have gotten a late start, but you've made some great finds! The sunrise is stunning! I've still got that one to do.

Cheri said...

Great shots Jacky! That tattoo is incredible. I don't think I could sit still for that much ink!

Jane said...

great shots, love the sunrise.

Deb @ PaperTurtle said...

I love your daughter's tattoo too, and I chuckled when I read that you wished it was on someone else. ;o)

Love the photo of you with ice cream. xo

Becky said...

Some great finds - like the one of you. Hope the rain holds off for tomorrow.

Maggie said...

I am not a fan of tattoos but that one is superb!

Abi said...

Love your finds Jacky. The ice cream is appropriate around here too. We don't quite know what to do with all this lovely sunshine! Can''t complain though-it's glorious!

Miriam said...

What great Scavenger Hunt finds. That tattoo is wonderful! And the sunrise ... just perfect.

Sian said...

Wow, that is an amazing tattoo! I haven't been brave enough to ask anyone if I can take a picture yet. Especially after TSO told me I'd look like a creepy old woman..

Carola Bartz said...

Your rack of postcards brought back happy memories when I visited Sissinghurst back in the 80's and 90's - such a beautiful place. I like your mascot!

Jo Murray said...

That's a serious tattoo! I've loved a little UK trip...thanks.

great to see something from Sissinghurst...I was there about 10 years ago...

Sandra said...

Great photos, considering you started late, you've done so well. We visited Sissinghurst about 2 years ago ... Great place

Maria Ontiveros said...

Wow - good for you!!!
You got some of the real tough ones. I especially like your tattoo!
Thanks for linking up.

your silly o'clock (I SO get that!) sunrise is splendid!
Great finds and photos ...

Great shots Jacky. I love the sunrise, I was up at silly hour myself today for my photo. When I was working I was up at 5am every day so got to see the sunrise regularly.
I was struggling with birds on a wire too but managed to get one the other day. Not shared any of my photos yet so I need to start soon!

Karen said...

Lovely sunrise shot and as you know I love a good pirate photo!

alexa said...

Such an amazingly creative tattoo ... your following remark about its position had me smiling in sympathy. You have done well for starting 'late' - though not as late as me :). Nice to see you enjoying an ice-cream!

BJ said...

Loving your photos, great that you saw a real parade too and certainly know what you mean about the juggler and birds on a wire. I got a bird on a signpost! Hmmmm! Understand your sentiment re the tattoo as well. Thanks for visiting me. BJ

Looks like you have a good start there. I like your daughter's tattoo! Very unusual. There must be a story there. I'd have to scrapbook it!
