It has been a while since I participated in a photo scavenger hunt. Greenthumb over at Made With Love puts a challenging list together each month. It is fun. I have noted down the prompts in my little notebook since January but somehow life got in the way of looking for the perfect motive. I was determined to get a shot for all prompts this month. Some prompts were more of a struggle than others... I like to just come across a perfect motive for my photos rather than staging them but I joined the party late and had to resort to a bit of staging.
Blue: I found this odd little blue number tag on a tree along the canal. I don't know what it means.
Crystal: A close up of one of six dainty crystal glasses that we like very much for a Friday night Margarita. I particularly like the little stars cut into the glass. They use to belong to Richard's granny.
Vintage: There is a fine line between vintage and old...this tea tray is both old and vintage. I like it a lot. It belonged to Richard's parents.
Fluff: I couldn't find any fluff balls in the corners of my house (for once). These dandelion clocks are a good approximation for fluff though. And so much prettier, too.
Global. I was hoping to catch one of the ubiquitous parcel delivery vans with a 'global' logo but there was none to be found. Instead I saw this plane passing over, in approach to Glasgow airport. Airplanes are a symbol of globalisation in my mind.
Mask: Here, clouds are masking the sun.
Bus: There are buses everywhere in Glasgow but it was not easy to capture one on camera. I am either too slow or the buses are too fast....
Collection: I am not what you would call a collector of things, unless of course you count fabric and yarn. I do have a small collection of necklaces hanging from my old mirrored chest of drawers.
Poster: This poster was hanging in my University library back in the 1996. I asked if I could take it home when the exhibition was over. I've had it ever since and I still like it very much.
Ribbon: a fern leaf rolled up like a spool of ribbon. They are a thing of beauty, those slowly unfurling ferns.
Whatever you want: a lucky shot. I liked the bird box with the number seven on and just as I was focusing, a busy little bird arrived with an insect in its beak for the little ones inside.
My selection of photos is just on of many. Do go and checkout the other links here. Why don't you join in in June?
Thank you so much for your long and thoughtful comments on my happiness post. I was just rambling away but I glad you enjoyed the post and contributed to it, too.
I hope you had a lovely weekend! Cxx
