Scavenger Hunt Sunday Photo Challenge 5


I so enjoy reveal day for this photo challenge, hosted by the lovely Ashley at Ramblings and Photos.   Check her site for all the details.




This was a much harder go this week than I have previously had. With my knee surgery looming in just 10 days, I've been feeling quite overwhelmed with appointments and preparations for the recovery time. I managed to find all my shots in my home . . . (the trees were found on my external hard-drive in my archived photos).

1. Macro
Oriental Poppy seed pods

2.  Found Texture
My daughter's cat Zack comes to visit and really seems to like the texture of the rattan seats in my kitchen.  He is a Ragdoll/American Shorthair cross.

3. Home
This little miss is who I share my home with . . . I usually find Gracie parked on my computer chair when I come home.  She is a Ragdoll/Himalayan cross.

4.  Cover
I have a number of vintage magazines . . . this one is from 1931 and sold for a whopping 10 cents.  The cover and contents are in excellent condition. 

The cover of this April 1907 issue of the Woman's Home Companion is showing some wear and tear but it is over one hundred years old.   It also sold for  10 cents.

5.  The Tree
I just can't choose so there are two here also.  When I lived up north in Prince George, this lovely tree in Fort George Park was a perennial favourite . . . The Tree I always wanted to check on.  

And this is "The Tree"  that calls me every autumn in my current location.   Its fall wardrobe is stunning to behold in all its golden glory.  I just wish I could take the tennis court out of the way.


The clues for the next week are:
1. Food
2. Purple
3. In Disguise
4. Shapes
5. Photographer's Choice


Be sure to spend some time wandering through the other entries linking at Ramblings & Photos.  You will be impressed!

  13. That golden tree is gorgeous! I know what you mean with the tennis court - I often find myself in similar situations, where I can't stand the background, and no matter from what direction I come, there is something there I don't like..

  20. Cover is so clever, my mind didn't even go there...being a foodie I could have done the "cover" of a cookbook! Love the poppy seed pods..would like to have some of those for a vase!

  22. Your dried poppies are heart warming to me! I have some also reminding me of all their summer beauty and yet this stage is also uniquely lovely to me...scratch a kitty for me, lovely shots of them.
    amazing about the magazines for a dime... is that also what you paid for them? I love old magazines!

  25. Love all your entries!
    The cats are beautiful! I've seen a lot of cats for home today. That must say something about all of us. :)
    Such treasures you have in the vintage magazines. A unique take on 'cover.' That didn't cross my mind.
    And, that last tree with its leaves scattered beneath is the quientessential fall shot!!
    Thanks for your visit today.
