Rinda's 2013 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt part 1

Yes I know I am really late joining in with Rinda's fab challenge.....
I have been taking photos throughout the Summer but have not managed to blog one yet!
So here I go with a random selection that, like last years, represents some of the places I have been and people I have seen this Summer.....

 17 Candles...... celebrating DD's birthday in July

 8 A tower.... the pink cooling towers of Ironbridge

 13 A cousin lives next to a field

 4 an airplane...... we flew to Scotland on this one

 6 someone or something taking a nap..... kids dozing in the sun on a boat trip

 18 you local tea shop... this is the small and cosy teahouse in Staffin on the Isle of Skye, the best cup of tea I have had for years and all the cakes were fantastic!!

 16 a windmill... one of a scattered few on Skye

 10 A bench that is outside....hand carved and what a view!

 9   A photo with someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong..... a telephone box in the middle of nowhere almost overgrown with weeds and bushes!

7  A sign that is intentionally or unintentionally funny.... well it made me laugh!

so have you managed to join in this year?  I know I have seen a lot of interesting and original interpretations of the list around the web and I think I may be stretching the rules with some of my fact I still have a couple to take..... nothing like leaving it to the last minute!


  1. I like your photos! The last one made me smile! I have done ok this year but don't think I have finished!

  2. Good photos Ruth...i've still got some to post and one more to get x
