Scavenger Hunt Sunday




1. Cracked

Cracked wooden railing on a bridge over the Jubilee River.
 
 
2. Fallen

Sadly I came across this fallen gravestone whilst documenting the stones in a local churchyard for my cemetery blog, Beneath Thy Feet.


3.  Ordinary Colour


This was all I could think of for the theme Ordinary Colour.  A blue colouring pencil and a blue pencil sharpener.
 
 
4. Bokeh
 
I have just recently discovered the term Bokeh after taking an out of focus picture of some sequins.  This was a happy accident when taking a macro shot of a Common Garden Spider.
 
 
5. Fence
 
I came across this greening fence on a walk with my husband.  I loved the rustic look 'L' behind it so had to snap a picture.

    1. Thank you. Cracked was the most difficult, due to being a short arse and the sun shining on my camera screen.

  8. Great bokeh shot! Love the fence and fallen. I began a local cemetery transcription project a few years ago then had to stop about 3/4's of the way through when I needed a knee surgery. You have inspired me to get on board and make the photos available to view and for research. Thanks for stopping by.
