Your front door
our front door is actually a side door so it can't be photographed easily from the front as next door's wall is in the way!

Here is a - link - to some of the other bloggers who have taken part.  There is also a - Flickr - page where you can upload your photos if you are a member.  There are some wonderful photos to discover.


  1. Well done - great photos. Love the bubble and the squirrel!

  2. Good set of photos - what a shame about the pavilion at Hanley. It doesn't look abandoned, it looks rather nice actually.

  3. Great pictures - I have just been wrestlinky with Linky things and Flickr to get my photos on - succeeded in the end!

  4. Well done on completing the challenge. I think the 'something out of place' is my favoutie one!!!

  5. well done for getting them all! I did the same for the bubbles picture! I'll be posting mine a little later, I just need to get all the photos uploaded to blogger!

  6. Wow ! That bubble is amazing ! Was fun finding the pics

  7. Nice to see some familiar places.

  8. I love the idea of a photo scavenger hunt! Great fun and pics - I also am loving the bubble :)

  9. I love your photos. The shot of the playground equipment has me pondering. It looks very interesting and I'm sure the kids have fun playing on it.
    The bubble photo is beautiful.

  10. That bubble is great and the squirrel is so cute.

  11. Great photos! Wasn.t it fun? Can't wait to see what comes next.

  12. This was so much fun! I struggled with a couple of the items, but in the end managed them all. Love your yarn, and you should see the difference between my abandoned building and yours...If I become displaced, I'd rather stay in yours!!! hahaha

  13. Brill the wren and the squirrel! Great to see local places...we're big fans of Getliffe's Yard.

  14. This looks like great fun! Well done for finding all of the photos. I love the one of the bubble!

  15. I especially love the colour in the goldfish and the bubble. I hope that little wren found its way out of the shop? It's really interesting to see the different interpretions on a given subject! x

  16. Thanks everyone for your lovely comments - I had great fun taking part and will have a go at the February challenge:)

  17. Beautiful stained glass window pic!
