Now I've uploaded all of my recent photos onto the computer I can share a few more Scavenger Hunt finds
I woke up fairly early one morning recently and as I slowly dragged myself back into consciousness, I could see the faint rays of early morning sun creeping through the blinds. I slipped out of bed quietly, picked up my camera on my way downstairs, quietly opened the front door and finally managed to catch a sunrise before anyone else woke up.
I'm also including a picture of me sitting on a sunlounger wearing an awful sunhat and sunglasses, reading a book on holiday. This is my take on me with something representing the season. Sun parasol. Sun lounger. Sun hat. Sun glasses. Me in Summer - done.
The category of a mascot caused me no end of grief. We don't really get too many mascots around here. But I found young Alfred here on the day we came back from holiday. We had stayed overnight before we went away in a hotel near to Gatwick that provided free car parking while you were on holiday. They have a little children's club there and their mascot was 'Alfred, the children's concierge'. So there's my husband trying to load 2 suitcases and handluggage back in the car and I'm still in reception taking photos of a display of teddy bears. What can I say? I am a Scavenger Hunter!
The photo bomb wasn't really noticed until we got back to the hotel one evening and went through the photos we'd taken that day. Lake Garda at night time is beautiful. The lights on the water are so pretty and the promenades are busy with people just walking around enjoying a post-dinner stroll. I was trying to get a photo of the lamp post for the Scavenger Hunt, and I liked the little lighthouse lamp in the background. But it was busy, and a lot of other people were standing around that part of the harbour enjoying the atmosphere. There were a group of people directly in my way and I was biding my time for them to move on. They eventually got out of shot and I snapped my picture. What I didn't realise was that this little girl in the red t-shirt must have jumped up onto the wall from the steps below just as I took the photo. I thought I had taken it in the few seconds between the rest of her family leaving and her running to join them! Needless to say, I was back again the following night to get my lamp post shot!
I think that is just about everything ticked off the list but now I have the fun of choosing the final 21 to print off. I've collected duplicates along the way and need to choose my favourites before I add them to my album pages. What a fun project this has been!
