[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'!

    At Brighton Beach Brooklyn (last year, I think).

    Week 28 prompt, Ice.

    I had meant to take a new picture - but couldn't find anything better than this one I took earlier this year of a fountain in Douglas.

    Shade

    After having posted this prompt, I set out to take a cool picture of shade somehwere. And then totally forgot. Then it was cloudy and rained --> no shadow. Watering my tomatoes I decided to use them as models this time, and giving you fruits of a plant of the nightshade family. (These ones are called Black Zebra. The final result s a red tomato with nearly black stripes, and I love it how the colours change during the ripening of it.)

    Catching up a bit more: Architectural Details & Celebrate

    Architectural Details

    Close-up of the porch of Strasbourg Cathedral in Alsace, France. It's actually one of my oldest shots, taken sometime in the mid-80s with my mother's small old simple camera which didn't even have an exposure meter. I was only in my teens, but already preferred to take a bit more unusual shots of the typical tourist sights. *g*

    2018 Challenge Week 29

    As it's mid July and for lots of people right in the middle of summer, let's take the most obvious prompt: summer - hoping you're all having or had a good one (if you live on the soutern hemisphere)! Show us something typical for summer, your favourite summer activity, food, drink, passtime, feeling, view, whatever... be creative!

    Shade

    In this warm summer you might just want to sit, with your dog, in the shade...

    2018 Challenge Week 28

    I hope last week's prompt wasn't too difficult to fill, as there aren't any entries yet? I hope this week's summery choice is easier: ice! Ice cream, ice tea, icebergs, icing on a cake, ice in winter.... whatever tickles your fancy!

    Catching up: Busy, Black & White, Spots

    Another post with travel souvenirs:

    Busy

    At the Loftr Viking Museum on the Lofotes, there are all kinds of recreated Viking crafts on exhibit, like an amazing example of an embroidered tapestry. This is the detail of a particularly busy part.
