Hunting For Photos

My Summer Photo Scavenging hasn't been going too well.  I'd only managed two photos and already blogged about them by the time Rinda had her Photo Scavenger Hunt Link Up Party!  In the interests of not leaving the other 19 items on the list until the last week of the Summer Equinox while I wait for spectacular-days-out-type photo opportunities, I thought I'd better accept some home-grown subjects instead!

Luckily the Great British Summer is making a yet another reappearance so I managed to snap some smalls (and not so smalls) on my clothesline ...

Photo - smalls & not so smalls on the clothesline
#2 - Clothesline
 ... and we had a few minutes to relax in our own hammock ... I'm ignoring the hanging from a tree bit!

Photo - not quite overloaded hammock
#20 - A swing hanging from a tree (or a hammock)
We love our hammock - a double one, just about coping with Hubby & me at the same time - that started life as a trampoline and was built indoors thanks to an equally rainy summer!

I also remembered to take my camera to the supermarket which is built in front of Crewe Heritage Centre where they have ill-fated prototype Advanced Passenger Train - the UK's first and fastest tilting passenger train that initially made some travellers nauseous because it worked too well: they could see the curves but couldn't feel them!

#5 - Train
Five photos down, 16 to go ...

Awesome! The hammock doesn't need to be hanging from a tree - only the swing would. Love your picture.

I love the picture of you in the hammock - only time I ever tried one I promptly fell out again on the other side..you're going to tell me there's something mathematical involved in that aren't you?

Woot on the hammock photo and it not having to hang from a tree - got that one then.

Wookie used to work in Crewe many many years ago... sent down from the big smoke!

Oh and Princess says RS is what the school call it but Philosophy and Ethics is the exam - they do an AS and then an A as there isn't an A level in Theology. Either way she did it for fun :)
