  2. That was so fun seing all you found to match the fun , dear Jan, they are all great, and many made me smile , I love the umbrella, camel walker and uniform ones !!
    Thank you for showing.
    Dorthe, xxoo

  3. This looks like a very fun activity to enhance one's travels. I think you nailed lots of the items. Great job...

  4. Wow - I love all of your finds so much! I get such a sense of "place" from them and you have such a great eye for composition. How can you make a public bathroom look so good??? The bridge is just lovely, but the camel walker is definitely myfavvorite!

  5. Jann some great photos there, glad you are able to take part this year too. Had to laugh at the camel and turtle. BJ

  6. Love your photos... what a great idea, and I love that your husband started joining in - the turtle is genius!

  7. These are ALL amazing. It must have been a joy to have your hubby help look for items on the list, because that turtle is wonderful. Of course, I adored the carousel, and the man walking the camel. Probably my favorite of all the ones I've seen so far. Seems no one but me had trouble finding social media, and of course, the three flags were real winners, too. So glad I had a chance to see these beauties.

  8. Some real fun has been had with this challenge, I enjoyed the first round of your pics & it's nice to see that progress is still being made!


  9. Fabulous finds! Love the Selfridges night time shot, and your bridges shots, too. They're all lovely.

  10. My you did well!! Lovely photos!! This has sure been fun!! Have a grand day!

  11. Great job. I love the camel walker and the overstuffed vehicle especially. And you got the flags! I'm still stuck on that one

  12. Love your camel being walked and your turtle photos! Great set of Scavenger Hunt photos :)

  13. Very fun photos, I think I like the umbrella shot the best.

  14. Wow what fun. Love the camel going for a walk. Priceless! Must look out for this challenge next year. Hugs Mrs A.

  15. Hi Jan, I'm a friend of Kerry and she's just posted that we were both at Mark Gould's workshop on Saturday! Small world, as Kerry says, but even smaller when I visited your blog and discovered we like much the same kind of thing and both take part in the Scavenger Challenge! You have some brilliant shots here! I do love joining in, especially as photography is another of my passions. Love your art and will be following your blog....

    If you are interested I posted about Mark's workshop today: http://itchifingers.blogspot.com
