[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'!

    notes from a small island



    The main sound for much of today has been that of rain on the roof, on the windows, and splashing in the puddles outside -

    That is the view of the rain splashing onto path at the back of the house, through the rather rain splattered windows!

    Earlier in the year I went to Lackock Manor, and to the photographic museum there.  William Fox Talbot is reputed to have taken the first negative-positive photo (and yea I saw it, and the window used!) ... However, like me the man needed glasses to help his sight - and here they are

    notes from a small island



    The reality of life on the small island.

    We almost always refer to leaving the island as 'going away'; "Have you been away recently?" "Are you going away at all this summer?" "Of course her daughter lives away.." And so on!

    These are what it is like if you want to go away with your car -

    Driving onto the boat.

    365 week 34 Friday

    Inside the car deck - this is only half of the lower car deck - the central block on the right contains stairs, lift, and engineering stuff, and there is the same amount of space on the other side of it - and also an upper car deck. As you can just about make out there are three rows of cars on this side. Altogether the Ben-my-Chree can take 275 vehicles.

    And finally - this was a day when I was really glad I wasn't going away!

    Brooklyn bridge



    When one thinks of the New York City Subway one thinks of the underground tunnels. The nearest station in my neighborhood, like several on this line (the N train), is above ground.
