Photo Scavenger Hunt, Straggler Style

Here's that Photo Scavenger Hunt list I found over at Anna's. I'm sure there are rules, but rules are made to be broken, or so I've heard. There's probably some picky requirement about having to do it in January; probably another that you do all twelve in one post; possibly a requirement that all of your pictures were taken in January. But having spent the best years of my life following the rules I'm now indulging in some long overdue rebellion. To my credit, I did get #1 in on time, but got carried away on a tangent, so it had to stand alone.




Slow and [un]Steady also gets to the finish line....eventually! Usually about the time all those over-achievers have dusted themselves off and gone home. Besides, if you follow those rules you get one post out of it, whereas having already got one, I intend to get a few more before I'm done. Devilishly clever, don't you think?

 This photo of a stained glass window, SL #2, was taken in a little chapel we wandered into on a visit to the OC's alma mater in upstate New York some years ago.......




A bit too modern for my taste; I prefer traditional church windows, like this one, taken on a trip to England when our youngest grandson was born........
.



Here's a reflective surface, SL# 9  [not a mirror] taken on a recent walk in the park.




Here's  playground equipment, minus the players....SL# 5 .....Another violation.....photos out of proper sequence......I'll probably be black listed by the Scavenger Hunt Committee. Oh dear.....




SL#3 was "a goldfish." This fellow probably has another name, but he looks gold to me! I found him lurking under the aforementioned "reflective surface."



He was accompanied by a flotilla of little turtles, of whom, unfortunately, I could not get a decent picture. My camera's zoom is misbehaving, so the only way to have gotten a good picture of Mr. Goldfish's little friends would have been to go wading in after them. When it suits, I do obey the rules......






I wasn't even tempted !

That last photo wasn't on The List....Oops! More demerits!  Five down, seven to go!

What fun! I love to break rules, and 'out of order' is perfect!

Rule breakers need to have a sense of humor - you win!

Thimbleanna said...

You're hysterical Molly! Love your pictures and your rule breaking - on many levels. Whatever would the nuns have said about that? Maybe a ruler across the knuckles, but then you wouldn't be able to take more pictures. Anxiously awaiting the rest of the installment....

What a cool, fun idea! I wish I had known because I would love to play. And I think your photos are swell, Molly!

who needs rules when they produce such splendid photos.

you know what Lynne quilts over at the Patchy Menagerie - if you obey all the rules you miss all the fun

p.s. - i am actually caught up with my binding bidnes today ... but i am very, VERY far behind on quilting (which i can't afford to send out, either ... sometimes i wonder why i quilt when there are so many aspects of it that i don't much like doing)
