FSO Scavenger Hunt–Spin, Drop, Rest

Robert Burns is sitting on my shoulder whispering:
The best laid schemes o' mice an' men
Gang aft a-gley, [often go awry]
You got it right there, old chap.

I actually had a plan for taking photos for this topic.  Thursday.  I tried on Tuesday but wasn’t happy and determined to have another go on Thursday.  You’ve guessed it, along with Thursday came a bit of a storm.

Tuesday’s child was not full of grace, he was extremely frustrated that the thing simply would not spin.


So I thought I might drop ‘drop’.  But, hey, look what happens when you suddenly get an idea and don’t check your camera settings.  It’s the crystal hanging in my kitchen window.

To see how others got on with the Scavenger Hunt, just pop over here.  The suggested guidelines last time were:

straight out of the camera, no editing
one photo per word
three words for each hunt
and we can add a fourth photo if we can find all three hunt words in one photo

so I've presumed the same applies this time.


  1. That crystal is a prize winning shot. Great job.

  2. Love what you find on this theme. Kids do love a lot of action and it shows in the photos. ^_^ Happy weekend!

  3. Despite living in Scotland (half my time anyway) I can't imagine having Rabbie Burns on my shoulder whispering in my ear. No. Definitely not.

  4. love the pogo that would could be spin or drop if i were on it

  5. I like the last shot also. looks fine to me. great shoot out!

  6. I don't know when they started adding spinning things to kid playgrounds, but the kids love them, and I cannot sit on them - getting too dizzy too quickly!

  7. good stuff Pauline! Looks like you had a fun time with the school project - good for you. Have a great week!

  8. Hi, Pauline. It is good to visit and enjoy the serenity of the Paddock, again. Enjoyed the tour.

  9. your blue mountain of net is redd here in Auckland.


I love to know who's visiting. Leave me a sign!
