Scavenger Hunt


 1. Basket

This shopping cart is a metal basket on wheels, don't you think?

2. Park

I'm stretching this one a bit, I think. This is the Duffin Creek section of the Waterfront Trail.  It's a lovely stretch of land on Lake Ontario, and since there are benches here and there to look over the water,  I am thinking this is kind of a park. This is what it looked during our recent January thaw.

 3. Auto

This auto is actually a horseless carriage. I wonder what the first horses to see one of these thought. Hmmmm.

4. Recycle

Antique farm implements are often recycled as lawn ornaments on rural front yards. Kinda cool and definitely more fun than scrapping the metal.

 5. People watching

I was the "people watcher" watching the people watch the geese, mallards and swans.

Great shots! I like your take on people watching! Happy Sunday!

Kate said...

I went to the link you provided but confess I didn't fully understand. Do you make up your own themes or is it done for you. I could not find the information that stated that this week was basket, park, auto, etc. Clue me in please. Many thanks! PS. I love the old farm equipment photo!!

It must be very interesting to be a people watcher.

But others may have been watching at you as well.

Lovely sequence of photos - I particularly like the last one.

Janet said...

Fun hunt! I am partial to that tractor in the snow.

Judy said...

Or you could "park it" for awhile and look out at the lake :). Great shots! Love the auto and recycle, tho I love anything vintage.

Great tractor shot. Where do tractors go to die?

TexWisGirl said...

love the old tractor, but that sweet little lady and her shopping cart stole my heart :)

Nicki said...

how dear is the elderly lady with her shopping basket - definitely counts. Love the recycled lawn tractor and your people watching shots.

Stephanie said...

Love the tractor for its bright color and the people watching. It is great when you can capture people when they are unaware of your camera.

Taken For Granted said...

You have great shots for the themes, especially the car and the International Harvester F-12 tractor.

Susan said...

Love that people shot-to imagine what they're enjoying. Cool old autos too. My fave story my grandmom used to tell was of her mother nagging her father when they got their first "horseless" car. At 20 m.p.h. her mom was nagging her dad to "slow down; she couldn't see the sights". Can you imagine her on the highway? Yikes.

Stephanie said...

These are all so creative! I love your recycle shot and your people watching one.

Deanna said...

your basket shot is brilliant and I love that red tractor!!

Christine E-E said...

the tractor in the show is my FAVE. probably the contrast of white against the red. sure captured my attention. have a great week.

Jackie said...

I love the tractor too. We have an old hand plow that was my father-in-law's when they were very poor and first started out farming.

We have it in our front yard just as you mention here.

Great series this week and it was challenging...I thought so anyway.

Happy hunting next week!

These are wonderful again this week. I love the bright red tractor. We often see old farm implements on display in yards and gardens here. I also like the people watching photo. Have a good week ahead!
