Scavenger Hunt Sunday is here again, that delightful exercise of finding/taking images to go with the new word prompts each week. I am addicted. Is there a 12 step program for this? Let me know.
These images were all taken on Saturday, June 9th. I went with a dear friend from our local photography club, wandering around our downtown area, through the alleys. We decided it was good to be together for safety purposes, though we only had one situation that made us antsy – so we walked another way. For about two hours we talked, walked, snapped images, and had a great time. Here is how a few of those images ‘fit’ the prompts for today….
In the day when travel by rail was at it’s peak, this old loading dock would have been quite busy. This building is located a few yards from the old depot (which our city has beautifully restored and uses as offices). I can imagine the hustle and bustle of trains pulling up along side to be loaded, goods being hauled around. (I used a preset in Lightroom to get the look you see here.)
Speaking of silly ….we thought this little padlock next to the broken pane of glass was rather useless. This broken window is on the outside of a large stained glass panorama in an old bank that is closed up. I’d love to see the inside.
This detailed sculpture above the door of an old building has a rather haunting look in black & white.
Walking through the alleys gives you an interesting view of every business’s back door. This automatic vent is rusty and has spots of blue paint spattered on it.
The peeling paint on this brick wall looks like paper; however, there is the remnant of a paper sign that was once tacked to that wall. I wonder if it said ‘no parking’?
Anyone can participate in Scavenger Hunt Sunday. You could even use the word prompts to see what you can come up with, even if you never post a single image online. It’s fun. It’s creative. And there really are no wrong “answers”. Click on the link below to learn more.
