Photo Scavenger Hunt – May

Before I leave for Spain next week I though that I would post my pics for this month.A lot of these were taken on the way to or from work, on my visits to see my students – I hope that you enjoy them!

Emergency Vehicle

This along with a couple of police cars was outside Birmingham New Street railway station last week when Ellie and I were travelling back.

Black and White Portrait

Taken in the window of the place where I had my photos developed, what a cute baby!

Spotted this fabric at the last Quilt Day that fitted this category very well.



Taken outside Accrington railway station one sunny day (I do spend a lot of my life at railway stations!)

This pic was taken that same day – like the contrast between the in and out of focus flowers.


Sign of the Zodiac

I was trying to be  bit creative with this – here is the Bull pub in Nelson, Lancashire.



So many pics to choose from for this – I eventually went with one taken last weekend at the Tudor House where Ellen works, Greyfriars in Worcester, this is part of the garden.


Think Vintage

Was not sure what to snap for this then saw this very cute dress in a shop window, I love retro fashions!

Interesting Local Building

This is a very significant building to Huddersfield and to me. It is the oldest building on the University campus where I work – dating from the late 1800s. It is called the Ramsden Building and is where I studied as an undergraduate 28 years ago.

Back to the railway station again for this – a rainy day in Yorkshire ( as opposed to a rainy night in Georgia!).


Red  Door

The thing I really like about the Scavenger Hunt is the way it makes you really look at things around you. I was thinking ‘where can I get a pic of a red door’ – well turns out next door neighbour but one has a red front door and here it is!

Cartoon Character

I am a huge Disney fan – the kids and I have been to Disneyland 5 times (4 trips to Euro Disney and 1 trip to Florida and loved every visit) – this is one of my souvenir soaps with the original cartoon character – the mouse that started it all – Mickey (who I have met on several occasions!)


Hope that you have had a good week – if you want to look at all of the other Scavenger pics then go to Kathy’s blog.

See you all when I return!

Thanks for visiting.
