Scavenger Hunt

This is the first week that I've participated in the Scavenger Hunt over at Ashley's Blog.  I had a bit of time yesterday to potter about and quickly try and take the five photos.  I think I only just managed to scrape in on the 'golden' picture and the 'sport' gets a "Pass" in my book.  But there you have it - five photos all more-or-less on the theme.

1. Golden - I loved the paw prints in the mud and wanted to take a photo of them.  I realised later that they were some golden leaves also in the shot.  Unfortunately they're a little over-exposed as I was exposing for the aiming prints and not the leaves.
2. Smell - Vegemite is my comfort food, but it stinks.  Matthias won't kiss me after I've eaten it.
3. Fruit - Apples are in season
4. Simple - A lone leaf on the bench.  This one was also a contender for 'golden'
5. Sports - Nike tick from my runners.

Hopefully I'll be able to organise myself organised enough to participate next week as well as I really enjoyed thinking about different ways to approach the five photos, even if I did leave it to the last minute! For more entries, head here.

Beautiful, I love the one of the leaf on the bench!

I notice you're in Berlin, we live in Heidelberg, down in the south. I'm originally British though and my husband is American, we've been here for 2 years and I adore it.

Lovely job! Last week was my first time to join :)

The sports is so iconic...and your bench shot is frame worthy for sure!

I love the vegemite shot! Yum! And I love the photo of the leaf too. I didn't get around to the scavenger hunt this week, I must get back into it this week.

"five photos all more-or-less on the theme"

This sums up exactly how I feel about my entries this week! However, I think you did a great job and it doesn't look last-minute or unorganized at all. I love your simple photo the best, but the paw prints are great too. They are all good!

Yay Clare! I'm so glad you participated this week and I love your interpretations. I think my favorite is the leaf on the bench...it looks like something that would be sitting in a coffee shop. Nicely done and I hope you can participate again next week.

Becca said...

Wow, Vegemite, very cool...tired it but didn't like it. :-( Oh well, neat idea, and I really love the leaf on the bench...beautiful shot.

Linda Robinson said...

Your shots look wonderful.. I have to agree with Becca.. I tried Vegemite but didn't really care for it.. I guess you have to develop a taste for it.. But I do love your photo of it.. Hope you are having a happy day..

Great shots. I love the paw prints.

Hubs won't kiss me after I've indulged in sunflower seeds. It doesn't stop me.

Jamie said...

Wow! You got some amazing photos.

Great apple shot!

Your Simple shot is so artsy and I love it. I feel like an entire Disney Short Clip can be written off of that photo!

Jess said...

Love all your photos but especially the simple shot. Its gorgeous, makes me want to sit on the bench and watch the world go by.

Susan said...

Great shots! I love the muddy paw print, but think the bench shot is my favorite.

Anika said...

Love your photos Clare. I've seen the bench before and love it, but the apples are my next favorite. Glad to see you're joining in. Your photos are always inspiring to me.
