[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'!

    A couple of photos taken from the top of the castle keep.

    A view down into the castle grounds, showing how the main line to Edinburgh cuts right through the site, between the keep and the gatehouse.


    And a shot in the opposite direction, over the river, with the hydraulic Swing Bridge on the left and the High Level Bridge on the right. The High Level Bridge was designed by Robert Stevenson and is a double decker, with a road on the lower deck.

    ETA I kinda forgot the rules. This isn't my picture, my friend took it. I'll dig out one a actually took and add it to the post. Which may take a while, the new laptop seems to have misplaced all my albums.... Anyway here is one from a different kind of race - a steeplechase over a "track" that crosses the driveway in two places with horses coming right over the jumps only a few feet from spectators. And the finish line is an uphill run.

    Tracks - the railway type

    Some pictures I took tonight with my little Finepix bridge camera - hand held and the camera was on a night setting which means it has boosted the brightness a lot, so things look a bit grainy and there is some blurring from long exposures. From Royal Oak underground station, which is on the approach to Paddington Station so has a LOT of tracks to one side. The first is looking along the underground track towards a tunnel, the other two are a main-line train heading into Paddington

    Track

    Arthur Ganson's sculpture, "Thinking Chair" the MIT Museum in Cambridge, Mass taken 2016.


    Watch it in action, here.

    After years (decades?) of walking around that stone, the chair (which is about an inch tall) has walked itself into a literal rut.
    I absolutely love his work, but it's hard to capture in a photograph because his gestural sculptures each perform very small, slow, natural, subtle movements
    ... and it's the movement itself that is the biggest feature (and beauty) of his art.
    However, this worn stage for this bright yellow chair encapsulates years of movement in a single moment.
