I mentioned previously that I'd discovered Kathy at Postcards from the PP was running a Photo Scavenger Hunt and I was planning to participate this month
Kathy set us quite a challenging list in June and I'm sorry to admit that I haven't fulfilled all my photo finding obligations. Some of the categories were just too hard so I'll admit failure before we start but promise to try harder next month!
Something with your town's name on it
I live in Epsom, Surrey, England.
This category should have been super-duper easy. The TV cameras arrived in early June ready for the famous Epsom Derby (a house race for those of you who don't know).
Epsom is transformed for 2 days a year from a cosy commuter town nestled between the London suburbs and the rolling countryside into a crazy cosmopolitan metropolis*. I trotted into the centre of Epsom on Derby day with my camera ready to snap snap snap. But this year it was as if the recession had hit all the festivities, or I totally missed them.
So the closest I've got to showing you Derby fever Epsom-style is a road sign, how frustrating.
This is one of my son's little friends who was found trundling through the garden bushes in search of a waterhole to quench his thirst in the mid-summer sun.
Another Epsom shot. The clock tower in the market square. I love this building.
Doh - I meant to take this shot last night, we had Gruyère and leek tart. I even planned the menu for the week so I could take the shot and now its all gone (yes it was really quite tasty). Disappointing. Again I apologise.
A farm animal
Oh the velvety ears look sooooo soft
Something beginning with z...
This is the last box on the Sampler I made for my son's birth, it now hangs in his bedroom
The view right outside my front door
Yes my house is a little strange, we don't step out onto a road. We are hidden away between the houses. It really does feel like I've stepped into my own little world when I close the gate, no one can see me and people regularly can't find me! Mowa-ha-ha-ha
Looking forward to July's challenge.. I think my report card for this month would state "7/12 Rebecca should try harder"
* potential for slight exaggeration here!
