[sticky post] What is Photo-Scavenger All About?

Everyone is welcome.

The idea is simple: we post a theme every week, and members respond with a photo or two that they feel captures that theme. We hope it will be a great way to share great photos and unique views.

The weekly challenges are now tagged by 'year and prompt' so all the prompts for this year, 2017, can be found by clicking on '2017prompt' in the tags list, so it should be fairly easy to find them and catch up at any time.
The Rules:

  • Our goal is one or two photos per post; but if you do post more than one or two, please be kind and cut. Photo size should not overflow the page :)

  • Posts should be tagged with that week's theme/prompt and with photographer's username. The tag for the prompt will already be in the tags list - it is added when the prompt is posted.

  • Only your own photography, please.

  • We want this site to be friendly. Questionable photos will be deleted at moderator's discretion, as will extremely rude or unpleasant comments.

  • Membership will not be accepted for journals that do not have any posts or other signs that they are 'real'!

    2019 Challenge, Week 24

    Last week, it was horribly hot, this week, it is horribly humid - perfect for this week's prompt! ^^

    I have, genuinely, just taken this picture. A young man of my acquaintance regularly sits on my settee taking pictures of what is on the television, and it was too good an answer to the prompt to not copy him when I was watching Brian Cox's series on The Planets, as you really wouldn't get much more heat than this!

    And now for the photos I took earlier today for this prompt! We haven't had a lot of heat over the past few weeks, but just enough for these flowers to bloom. They are, officially, Kniphofia. But their relevance to the prompt is that, here, they are known as Red Hot Pokers.


    And, bonus pic, the bees love them;

    2019 Challenge, Week 23

    Once again the current day inspires me to the prompt: after a rather cold and wet May, we've had a horrible heat wave for the last few days, and everything and everybody is just melting. Even our cats found it too hot and lay in the shadow as if switched off.
    So let's have heat for this week's prompt!

    On my trip to London last November I visited The British Museum, as I do every trip .... and look at this for the "latest" in male fashion!!

    Last November when I was in London, I visited Sutton House in East London .... and I think this picture shows both wood and the property.

    But you might think it is a bit odd with that section cut out of it. But therein lies its beauty - to find out what this particular bowl has been designed for click here....Collapse )

    My grandson in Prospect Park, Brooklyn in front of the monument to the Marquis de Lafayette. If you are not familiar with American history: Lafayette played a romantic role in the Revolutionary War--a very rich and very young idealist. At only nineteen years old, along with a handful of other young men, including Alexander Hamilton, he served as part of George Washington's general staff.
