I like to group my random scavenger hunt photos together under a theme and today's were all captured while I was out and about on the street.
[The hunt is hosted by Rinda over at Gallo Organico - drop by Rinda's for the full details].
No.6: An urban street scene
But I didn't really want them to see what I was doing ... which resulted in them not exactly being the focal point of the shot. You might just be able to make them out in the background!
Here's something a bit closer for you ...
No.17: A lamp post
June Month in Numbers post] I spotted a suitably Victorian style lamp post in this historic spa town.
And, still in Harrogate, but not so picturesque is my version of ...
No.5: A rack of postcards
Now, while I certainly didn't notice this at the time ... when I looked at this shot on my laptop screen I realised I'd caught my friend Janet still browsing inside the shop. Then I looked closer still, over Janet's head, and saw another face. Facing forwards ... one of the shop assistants was staring out at me!!
Clearly what I was going to discover was him inside watching me outside taking a photo of the rack of postcards ... although I'm now wondering if he thought I was taking his photo.
Which in a way I was!
I'm not sure if it counts, but if I don't find a better one before the end of summer, I think I'll use him as my: No. 10. A photo bomb (someone found lurking in the background of photo; the lurker may have intended to disrupt the picture or may be doing it unintentionally, but the background lurker is a surprise to the photographer)
Thanks for dropping in on me today.
I might not see your comments for a few days as I'm away from my emails, but please don't let that put you off saying 'hi'. It'll be nice to open them once I'm re-internetified.
