Photo Scavenger Hunt Post 3

Here are my finds for items 12 – 16:

#12 A cloud in the shape of something

#12 A cloud in the shape of something

This was one of the most difficult items to find. For months, every cloud I looked at looked like … a cloud! Finally I looked up as I was closing the gate after coming home from work, and noticed this cloud pattern. To me it looks like the outline of a pine tree, as you might quickly paint or sketch one. I’ll understand if it just looks like clouds to you though.

#13 A fence

#13 A fence

Somewhat embarrassing this – it’s ours. Fortunately it doesn’t actually do anything any more, being a relic of past owners when our property was a livestock farm instead of a horticultural block. Once this fence would have kept stock out of the ‘house garden’, but we’re thinking of taking it down.

#14 A stained glass object or mosaic

#14 A stained glass object or mosaic

This is the floor mosaic in one of Melbourne’s lovely arcades. The woman gazing wistfully into the shoe shop window is my sister; the shop was closed or she would have been inside, trying on a pair or two!

#15 A fire truck or police car

#15 A fire truck or police car

Melbourne has mounted police as well as the ‘normal’ kind. All of them were out in force on this particular evening, ready to police the crowds dispersing from a rally on the refugee issue (very controversial in Australia). As we walked up the street and past the Town Hall where the rally was being held, it seemed there were far more police than demonstrators though.

#16 A windmill

#16 A windmill

This windmill is a water pump, and is located on the Woodville property we visited for a hazelnut pruning demonstration last month. I had no clue as to how or where I was going to bag #16 for the hunt, so I was very pleased to see this!

  1. That is a lot of police cars. I found the cloud photo hard too. I finally found one but when I took the photo and looked later it didn’t look like it had in real life … I think I will keep it though.

  2. Wow a great photo of the police! I don’t see the mounted police very often here. I can definitely see your pine tree in the cloud image and the detail in the mosaic is breath taking.
