[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'!

    H and P

    I was stumped on both H and P. Then I decided to combine them. This was my grandson's birthday several years ago. Exhausted after a big party, which featured Harry Potter swag (his obsession at the time).



    Another P

    I saw this gent a couple of years ago, and commented on it when I replied to people on my last posting of a Peacock - so thought I would share it here


    I Spy with my little eye something beginning with H and something beginning with P

    I got so far behind here that I stopped keeping a note of the prompts I had missed. So I am going to forget about them and start again.

    I spy H
    When I was in Canterbury earlier this year I saw this horse in the Cathedral Close. It is a memorial to all the horses that went through Kent on the way to the First World War.

    I spy P
    Over the last year or so I have found a number of painted pebbles, usually placed where they would only be seen by chance. The first one was under a bicycle rack in Wallsend. It is a bit dark, but the words say "Rock around the clock". The second was at Kenilworth castle in Warwickshire. But my favourite is the third, which was sitting in a flower bed at the Metro Station. The first two had words on the underside asking people to post a picture on facebook (but I don't 'do' facebook). The final one also had words on the underside, but they just read, "Tyneside Rocks". I took the pictures and then put then back where I had found them.

    comedy and tragedy


    I spy with my eye

    Something starting with 'P' - in fact, a lot of somethings!

    This is our play library at the theatre. Comedies and drama are on the first two shelves, musicals are on the bottom.  The awe inspiring bit about this is save from the stack of paper on the far right of the second from the bottom shelf - we have done all of these.



    I Saw A P

    On Monday my friend and I went to Warwick Castle for a day trip ... and look what I saw, a Peacock!

    notes from a small island


    Challenge, Week 33 2019.

    S to continue with the I Spy idea;

    This week I Spy with my little eye something beginning with P.
    notes from a small island



    I went out in the garden to spy an H - the hydrangea -


    But on the way past I also spotted a double H - the Himalayan Honeysuckle -


    And a third - a hollyhock -

    With DJ



    Back at the end of May I went to an art exhibition, and this was one of the first sculptures I saw ... he really doesn't look all that happy with his ears flat back (and I wasn't suprised to see he had yet to be sold)
