Photo Scavenger Hunt: November

It's the end of November and time for the monthly scavenger hunt, organised by Greenthumb at Made with Love. I have to say that I really struggled with some of the categories this month, though I can't quite put my finger on why. Maybe it's just because I've had more limited time for taking photos?Anyway, this is what I managed to find.

N is for...: Nattering. Just in case you can't read it, the sign says 'Beware all ye nattering women, witches and thieves'!

12pm : Saturday 22 November. Having a latte and muffin in Manchester before the cinema.

People : The crowds enjoying the Christmas market in Manchester.

Look back : To September and a previously unpublished photo.

Joy is...: being with your friends.

Out and about : 7.25am, Monday 24 November. OK, I'm stretching it a bit here but I had just come out of my front door and was about to get in my car. I loved how the sunrise was creating stripes of colour in the sky behind the tree.

Paper : Paper lampshades on the Christmas market.

Window : Looking through the window of the Black Bull pub in Haworth.

Hair : Chickpea's hair lit up by the sun.

Funny : A record by one of Britain's funny men, Benny Hill, spotted in a charity shop window. Go here to watch him sing the classic 'Ernie (The fastest milkman in the west)'.

Something you found : A tennis ball at Tatton Park: I found it, the dog clearly didn't!

Whatever you please : Yarn-bombing in Preston.

Even when it's a struggle, it's still great fun taking part in the scavenger hunt and I really look forward to seeing what the new categories will be. If you'd like to take part, head over to Made with Love to find out what December has to offer. You can also see the brilliant photos taken by the other entrants.

Hope you're enjoying your weekend. We hosted our Lancashire evening last night and had a brilliant time - my sides were aching from laughing. More on that another time. Today is a much quieter day to recover and I'll be heading out shortly to enjoy a walk under the clear blue skies and sunshine before the light fades. Only 3 weeks before the shortest day and then the light will start to return again - I can't wait. x
