June photo scavenger hunt

June has whizzed past at the speed of light and memories of it are already a bit fuzzy and the flow of time is a bit fluid now that the summer holiday has started. The photo scavenger hunts have become a bit of a beacon in time, just like a light house was a beacon for travellers at sea. I look forward to posting my photographic treasure and I really enjoyed this month's prompts. This months photos are mostly accidental lucky shots with a couple of deliberate compositions. I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I do!

The scavenger hunt is organised by Greenthumb over at Made with love. Have a look at all the other scavenger hunts, there are some amazing photos to see!

B is for blackbird. I love the song of the blackbird. It is a sign of Spring.




10am: Freshly baked croissants for a late breakfast


 
Spoon: a spoon full of sugar - makes the medicine do down. Except that sugar is the new fat and we are encouraged not to use as much as we do. 
 

 

Puppet: Three bears from Goldilocks and the three bears. Alistair made those with the help of Annie for his Fairyland topic




You again: stop taking photos mum! Can't you see I am busy?
 


 
Water: a perfect drop of water on a quince tree flower. This is the first time in three years that my tree has blossom that was not destroyed by the Spring storms.
 


 
Habitat: I created an accidental pond habitat in my garden in the forgotten seed tray lid. I have no idea what the little red larvae will be when it grows up but I do hope it doesn't bite.




 
Soccer: two pairs of legs wearing football socks. They play indoors in case you wonder why the shoes looks so pristine.
 
 
 
 
 
Calm: a short stretch of the river Kelvin that is perfectly calm.
 



Man made: Tower blocks in Maryhill
 


 

Open: open water on a recent ferry trip. For someone who grew up in a landlocked country, even smallish expanses of water seem vast and open
 



Steam: Contrails photographed whilst lying on my back, sky watching. Ok, this maybe a bit far fetched for steam but contrails are clouds really, which are formed when invisible water vapour (steam) in the air condenses into visible water droplets or ice crystals.

  4. These photos are all so interesting, every one of them. The little legs are so cute. They have such pale skin! You must have to slather them in sunscreen in the summer. The bear stick-puppets are adorable and look like fun. I try so hard to eat less sugar but it's very difficult. It's my greatest weakness. But I will say that I've been trying hard for about six months ago and have lost a few pounds. It's the only think I've changed about my diet so it must have been a huge calorie-load I was taking in just sugar. Thanks for sharing these beautiful photos and your comments, it was very enjoyable.

  9. Hey Christina,
    Those little tumble down socks! I love little children and their tumble down socks. I like the idea of a photo hunt. The prompts must makes it a creative challenge.

  20. I enjoyed all of your photos for June! I really liked the blackbird and the tower blocks. We have a lot of them around here and it's funny how your photo has made me found some kind of beauty in them....! I bet you are glad for indoor football, we are not so lucky around here and it is impossible to get the mud out of my son's football socks! Have a great weekend, Christina! . :)
