October Scavenger Hunt

Tuesday, 1 November 2011

All I am going to say about the October challenge is thank goodness I work where I do. Most of these were taken at work during the Halloween event.


Over the River Mersey towards the Wirral. I had one of the settings on my camera slightly off so this was a complete accident!

A black cat:

This is a little tin thing I've had since I was about 6.

Crunchy leaves:

My overwhelming memory of October has been sog. The leaves were almost never crunchy; they were soggy and wet and stuck to my shoes all month. Resorted to some trees in the end.


So despite the sog, we never actually had any fog or mist *shakes fist at the weather*


My new effalump ring


It counts, right? Very old graffiti, anyway.
ETA - I *think* it just says one to fourteen



I think I had too much choice for this one. Honestly, I could have taken a picture of just about anything and it would have qualified.


Yup, at work, during the Halloween event.

Something eerie:

There's a ghost story associated with it but I won't dash your hopes and explain how inaccurate it is...


The Mersey. There's usually more water in it, honest.

Witch's hat/broomstick:

Both! In your FACE scavenger hunt challenge!

Thanks, as always, to Kathy for organising this. You can see everyone else's collections here.


  1. Your black cat is gorgeous!
    What does the graffiti say? I can't make it out.

  2. The 'accidental' setting has made for a wonderful, atmospheric photo. What a beaut! And vintage graffiti; that's a new one on me! How old IS it?
    Your workplace is such a stunning place...I will come and visit it one day.(And you too!).

  4. Super photos! Your sunset is so beautiful:)

  5. Ha awesome ring, altho that picture below your defiant looking pumpkin is def creepy! :)

  6. i totally missed out on pumpkin carving this year, the rangers wanted to do it and there were no pumpkins a few wks ago, and then by the time yday came for guides halloween party, there were none left! i quite like them, but not sure what i would have done with it so maybe not a bad thing after all.
    love the sunset picture!!
