Photo Scavenger Hunt: October

Here's my entry for October's Photo Scavenger Hunt, organised by Greenthumb at Made with Love.  It's always interesting how the selection of photos reflects my life each month. This time it shows that my days were mostly spent close to home with only an odd day out.

Orange: Could it be anything else but pumpkins for a post on Halloween?

2: On the side of an industrial unit.

Flower: Rudbeckia in my garden.

Rubbish: Trimmings from my miniature quilt which is almost ready to reveal :)

Emotion: I really really struggled with this category as none of my family were willing to appear on camera and I felt uncomfortable photographing strangers without their permission. In the end, my daughter came up with this idea: the strapline for the current Peugeot adverts is 'Motion & Emotion'.

Flight: Having just taken off from Manchester Airport, flying over Tatton Park, to destination unknown.

Homemade: A caramel custard apple tart.

Black & white: Zebra crossing.

Coffee time: Latte with a waffle, maple syrup and whipped cream.

Balloon: Seen floating in the roof of the covered market, Preston.

Weather cock: At Tatton Park.

Fridge magnet: I started collecting fridge magnets from places we've visited a few years ago. This is one of my favourites (and a fabulous place to visit).

The categories for November are already available if you fancy joining in next time. x


  1. Gorgeous photos...I really love your scavenger hunt posts. The foodie photos I particularly like.

  2. Your photos are great, Julie! I love color, and yours are full of it! I appreciate the effort behind the airplane! And your apple tart made my mouth water! *hugs*

  3. Beautiful set.The SH is indeed a diary of our life each month. I like your foodie photos the best. Oh! and the zebra crossing.

  4. Thanks for taking part in months scavenger hunt, what a great group of photos. Orang, black and white and homemade are great. Greenthumb.

  5. What a fantastic set of photos! I love them all and can't choose a favourite, but must give a special mention to your black and white one - the black and white trousers and shoes just top it off!

  6. Your 'orange' photo is amazing. I can't decide between 'homemade' and 'coffee time' for the best foodie pic.

  7. You took great photos! Good idea for emotion, I found that one hard too, I overthink things! My favourite has to be your coffee time - the waffles looks so good!

  8. Love your photo of the balloon and I'm totally with you on Sorrento--great place.

  9. Great set of photos! Orange really is quite striking! The waffles look awesome, I have such a sweet tooth! If you had been able to capture the face on the little child who's balloon went to the roof, you could have used that for emotion!

  10. Halloween...when I lived in England in 1985 there was not one mention of it. Do people celebrate it there now? It seems to be so from what I see on TV.
    Sorrento! I have never been there, but I love the song, Come Back To Sorrento!

    1. Halloween has become a lot more popular over the last few years though nowhere near as huge as it is in the US. I don't know that song - will have to look it up. x

  11. great interpretation of b& why didn't I think of that? I want to eat that pie.

  12. Brill photos and ingterpretations- all the food ones make me feel hungry:) They look so wonderful:)
