Scavenger Hunt Sunday

By Ronniejt28 @hurtledto60
This is my second week contributing to Scavenger Hunt Sunday.  Last week I cheated because I wanted to join in and had only found Ashley's blog, so I used photos from my library.   All week, since last Sunday, I have been scavenging, with my camera, for ideas of the prompts we were given.  Words, Under, Orange, Fly and Always look on the bright side.  I had been warned that photo challenges are addictive and, boy, how I discovered very quickly that they certainly are!
The trouble I have now is that there are a couple of photos in two of the categories that I can't make my mind up which one to use, so I will show both.   These are my contributions to Scavenger Hunt this week:
  1. WORDS
 Some photos have to be set up and after a great deal of thought I came up with the one below.  I felt quite pleased about it until a friend said they didn't like the composition, it made me doubt it but it is here anyway:-

2.  UNDEROur local radio announce the tide times every morning.   On Thursday I heard the tide was out at lunchtime,  so I took my camera to work, went to the beach and stood underneath the pier.  It was a bracing exercise!

When I walked back up the beach, I noticed the graffiti underneath the theatre that is at the beginning of the pier.

3.  Orange
 As a lot of the contributors to Scavenger Hunt Sunday are American, it was a pretty good bet that there would be a good number of pumpkins, so I decided not to go down that route.
On Saturday I visited and subsequently wrote a blog post about Sheffield Park which is a local National Trust Garden.  The intention was to take photos of the lovely autumn russets.  This is my contribution to Orange.

Surprise, surprised,  despite trying to avoid pumpkins, I saw a selection of them outside a shop, they were just too good to miss, so I surreptitiously whipped out my mobile (cell) phone and took a photo of them.

4.  FLY
With this prompt, I had intended to go down to the beach this weekend to take photos of the kite surfers, but there was no wind today.  The other alternative was this one:-

5.  Always look on the bright side
My last photos is of my Mum.  She is almost 93 and has lived in a nursing home around the corner from me for almost 3 years and has never been happier.  Although wheelchair bound and completely non-weight bearing, she is always cheerful.  This photo I took on Friday evening, when the Home were having a Hollywood Nights evening.  All the residents were dressed up and Mum had a little tiara and sparkly beads.  We all had a great time.

Thank you Ashley for such great prompts and I look forward to another week of being busy with my camera.
