The end of the month always brings the latest scavenger hunt. This time it also marks the end of my holidays. It will probably be December before I get more than a day off - sigh :(
Never mind, I still have plenty to share from my hols, some of which you can see in my entry.
Walk: The disused railway line near Ramsbottom.
Horizontal: The horizon at Brockholes nature reserve.
Square: St Ann's Square, Manchester.
Diversity: There's a real diversity of architectural styles on the waterfront in Liverpool.
Rough: The rough and rusty iron girder supporting the subway under the East Lancashire Railway.
Bow: The bow of a ship.
Joy: I thought this sculpture at Arley Hall looked full of joy.
Forgotten: A lonely bear hoping his owner will return. Although, with those ears, I'm wondering if it's actually a mouse.
Crowd: Crowds of people at Albert Dock, Liverpool. We were there to see the 'On their own' exhibition at the Maritime Museum about the child migrant schemes which saw over 100,000 children sent to Australia and Canada. Needless to say it was very moving, particularly finding out that most of the children had families but were told they were orphans. Shockingly, children were still being shipped to Australia up to 1967. There is a detailed web site with lots of photos and stories from former child migrants.
Colourless: Half of this drawing has yet to be coloured in. It was part of a giant floor art project in the Arndale Centre, Manchester.
Friendly: This friendly little fellow is Maurice. Actually, I don't know if he's all that friendly but he's certainly determined and bold. He was a regular visitor for a few days this month, collecting seeds from the alchemilla mollis.
Whatever you want: How about this as a way to re-use your old milk bottles?
The September list is already available if you'd like to take part next month, or if you'd like to see the other entries - it's amazing how differently each of us interprets the categories. x
