Photo Scavenger Hunt: September

Another month, another entry in the photo challenge organised by Greenthumb at Made with Love. I really enjoyed this month's categories though I did have to dip into my archives for one of them.

White: Detail of the quilt 'Boutis-ful flowers' by Janet Stevens at the Harrogate quilt show.

One: A bit difficult to see because of the reflection on the glass but this is the number 1 bus to Haxby and Wigginton, near York.

Graffiti: On a wall in Preston.

Ears: Ears of wheat carved in stone on the front of St Wilfrid's Catholic Church, York, representing the parable of the weeds among the wheat (Matthew 13: 24-43).

Repetition: Traditional telephone boxes 2 x 2 x 2...

Disney: Cross stitch kits at the Harrogate quilt show.

Lace: Mantelpiece cover in the Victorian parlour at the Weaver's Triangle visitor centre, Burnley

New: Autumn fashions at Marks and Spencer.

Door handle: A pair of door handles in the Royal York Hotel, York. I don't usually use a flash but it was very dark in the corridor.

Beach life: I don't live near the sea and didn't have time to visit a beach this month so I struggled with this category and had to dig into my archives. The jelly fish was photographed on Crosby beach last year when Chickpea and I went to see the Another Place exhibition of Antony Gormley statues. You can read all about our visit here.

Tree: Avenham Park, Preston.

Tattoo: As soon as I saw this newspaper clipping I knew I had to use it for Tattoo. It's from an article on the weirdest world records which also included 'fastest dog on a tightrope' and 'longest distance travelled by a goat on a skateboard'!

This is such a fun challenge - the hardest part is memorising the categories at the beginning of the month! If you want to find out what's in store for October, why not pop over and start collecting your photos now?


Did you enjoy Yarndale, those of you who were lucky enough to make it there? I had a great time and will be back with my own take on it next time. x


  1. Love your photos, the phone boxes and door handles are my faves, but they are all very good. The tattoo made me cringe a bit after I'd read it :(

  2. Great set of photo - I love the photos for repetition and the tree.

  3. Thanks for taking part in this months Scavenger hunt. You have added another great collection of photos. I really like your photos of repetition, new and white. Let me know if you have any ideas for the Scavenger hunt Greenthumb.

  4. What I really noticed about your selection of photos was the exquisite and intricate detail is so many of them ~ the quilt, carving, lace and door handles in particular. That is some front window in the bus! Colourful graffiti and the telephone booths are an amazing find for 'repetition'...great article on tattoos as well...Jellyfish are amazing, aren't they? They were 'blooming' around here not long ago and I had a few good photos of them pulsating through the ocean. I really loved your photos!!

  5. I so enjoy these posts and your photos are lovely as always. I particularly like the picture of the red telephone boxes. Looking forward to your post about Yarndale, and glad you enjoyed yourself.

  6. Wonderful photos, Julie! The telephone booths are vibrant! I thought that non one would have a jellyfish, and there yours was! The tattoo one is freaky, but great! Take care!

  7. It's a shame we didn't bump into each other, I'd love to have met you! I love your photo challenges - your takes on "ears" and "repetition" are fun and original. x

  8. Love the graffitti and the tree is great.

  9. Well done for getting photos for all the clues, I failed miserably and only managed half of them.

    I really White, Lace and Tree, that looks like a lovely park to go for a walk.

  10. Your photos are fabulous. Graffiti is not usually my thing but the colors in the piece are great. The phone boxes are so bright and I just love them, reminds me of my time living in the UK. The tattoo article is freaky. Great set of photos!

  11. Hi Julie! Lovely photos, especially the repetition, white and tree ones! I've just uploaded mine!I couldn't find anything for the tatoo or the disney category.

  12. Great photos, I really like the repetition one.
