How did the first month of summer fly by so quickly? It's time to link up at Gallo Organico for the Summer Scavenger Hunt. I have a few new ones to share today, and thanks to Miriam's Flickr slideshow, decided to create a gallery for mine at SmugMug. You can click on the Summer Scavenger Hunt button on the sidebar to get there as well.
We walked to the Farmer's Market today which has moved for a few weeks across from the town hall and library. I knew I'd be able to find a police car (#15) and the town hall (#3), and I hoped to find a fence (#13) as well.
Much to my surprise, I found a deer standing in front of someone's fence on the way to the market.
But I also like this shot of our garden fence now that the flowers are finally beginning to bloom.
I didn't need to get behind the police station to find a police car either, as one pulled into someone's driveway as we walked to the market.
Here's the photo I planned to take:
We don't really live in the city of Rochester, though we are just one street away from the city. So we have a town hall rather than a city hall.
Thanks to Becky, I realized I also have a dinosaur (#20) residing in our living room. We're not sure how it came to be there, but Tracy likes moving it around so you're never quite sure where you'll find it. Here he is on the bookshelf in the living room.
I like this one, too, that I found a few weeks ago at the Ithaca Farmer's Market.
Finally, the scavenger hunt has prompted a new little photo project for me. As we were walking this week I saw several cool benches (#10), and decided to do a little Bench Project. So here are this week's captures.
At the library; a self-portrait and a reflection of Tracy, too.
Both of these were on Monroe Avenue
And a sailor's memorial bench behind the library that I'd never noticed before. I love how these projects focus your attention.
So now I've checked off seven of the twenty-one items. I know where I'll find a couple others, but I'm going to have to work a little harder on most of them.
