Scavenging: the August list

Blogger has surprised me this morning by updating just about flipping everything about how it works. Tempted to hit the 'take me back to the safe world of old Blogger' but let's see how we get on first...

I liked this list, probably helped by being on holiday and having new things to photograph.
How did everyone else get on?

A fountain - outside York Art Gallery
A market - with a very high sign!
A funfair - the old fashioned type, again in York
Something bizarre - empty tombs propped at a jaunty angle in a flower bed. Hmmm...

Mountains - the Alpine house at RHS Harlow Carr in York. I live in Norfolk, this one was always going to be a tough one!
Bread - my first attempt at soda bread, which has a texture that was almost like cream crackers
Street food - cupcakes IN the street! It's a terrible photo as it is on a busy pavement in the Norwich Lanes, but it commemorates a baker who had a shop nearby
A boat - with a flight of 20 locks in the background, at Caen Hill

A sport - family rounders on our camping holiday
Fabric - is my stash *too* big..??
Something ancient - Aylesbury stone circle
A picnic - more fun from the family holiday


  1. A great selection of photos!

  2. Its great when you can take the scavenger hunt on holiday, isn't it? So much more scope. I had trouble with mountains - none in Suffolk either!

  3. Great photos! Love the ones in York and the canal boat with all the locks:)

  4. Great photos, I love the family picnic and those fantastic locks behind the boat!

  5. Hi Ellen, I love your photos. Great shot of the locks at Caen Hill.

    I hope you don't mind but I've copied your 52 things idea for me to do in 2012, so thanks you. I've just posted about in on my blog.

  6. you can never have too much fabric, i love they way you have put the collection together -beautiful
