The Summer Scavenger Hunt Part Two

I've been out and about looking for more photos, thanks to Rinda and her Summertime Photo Scavenger Hunt
Not quite a "roadside memorial" but certainly the most interesting roadside anything I've seen lately. I'd love to know more about it


A building made from metal or glass.  Airport at 5.30am - with a soft urban action to give it a bit of atmosphere

Cardoness Castle Scotland. Our first holiday stop

Driving down England on the way to our holidays gave us plenty of chances to photograph rain
person sketching

But at least the sun shone when we got there. We found this little graveyard tucked away on a quiet hillside. There were lots of "Dahl's" buried there:relations of Roald's, maybe? I've left a  corner of our ship (to the right) in this picture to remind myself how I wondered about the our intrusion in such a peaceful place


And that's as far as I've got. Still no sign of a unicycle yet, but I haven't given up hope!

These are great Sian, particularly love the graveyard as strange as that sounds!

That roadside sculpture definitely grabs the attention, doesn't it? I, too, would love to know the mystery behind it!

Loved viewing your photography! That sculpture is so different!! Very interesting!

You are making great headway, let us know if you find out anything about the roadside art!

Wanda said...

That higgeldy-piggeldy structure is amazing. I wonder who thought that one up! Good luck with the rest of the scavenger hunt.

Sue Althouse said...

The first photo has me so curious, would love to know more about that! And my husband uses his zoom all the time to take photos of unsuspecting people. Good luck with the unicycle. My dad has one when I was a kid, wonder if there are any photos.....

What fab photos you've used for your scavenger hunt, good luck with the uni-cycle!

Becky said...

Love your rain photo - we've seen that view on so many holidays in the UK! Hope you get that unicycle soon.

Think I'm going to have to resort to taking off the front wheel from my husband's bike to get a unicycle photo ;-) I need to get stuck into that list now, every now and again I see something that I could use and I haven't got my camera with me - must get into the habit of keeping it in my handbag.

Jo said...

Great photos of some unusual things

Annie xx TheFeltFairy said...

Sian your pictures are amazing, how clever are you to catch such great things! It is all about stoping to notice things I think, I really should try harder!

Ginger said...

I love that first photo! It's great to see these pictures Sian. I've thought of scouring a bike shop to find that unicycle, but what would the fun in that be?!!

Sandie said...

I love the roadside sculpture - I always get excited when I come across something unexpected. The rain on the car windowscreen is good. It always so comforting to be inside in weather like that.
