Scavenger photo-challenge questions

Thank you every one for your comments and questions about my last post - Scavenger photo-hunt challenge - So I thought I would answer and explain what we did.

Cathy - The House with the Blue Door - Thank you it was a long walk but was helped by the search, Eldest has a deep fascination with moss, I've always loved it but with a simple affection for a soft green damp lump of plant material where as he wants to know what species, what it grows on, where it grows - almost bordering on an obsession.

Susan - Granny Smith's Quilting -  You mentioned it could be something to start, we have done it as a family for a while now, especially when the boys were younger - the plan was to make them 'see things' rather than just glance at them and instantly forget.  I wanted them to look and look with meaning.  I also have a bit of a plan sshhhhh - will share details soon!

Tess - Driftwood, thank you and I am lucky that I have two good kids that still have time for me, despite being teenagers! I am so very grateful for that :)

Jak and Marlene Jones thank you - it was good fun and it was interesting to see how we see things through different eyes despite doing the same walk - that is what I love about walking with the boys, we all see and interpret individually.

Anne - frayedattheedge - do challenge your son with a scavenge photo-challenge next time he with you - it is great coz it becomes gently competitive and when once home, with the kettle on, sit back and enjoy comparing what you photographed !

Threads through my life - thank you and as I mentioned to Susan - I have a bit of a plan going on in my head :)

Jayne - The View from Bag End - Thank you and you asked how we came up with the list, we each randomly wrote down five different items that popped into our heads about five minutes before we set off - as simple as that!

Now, my 'bit of a plan'. Would you be interested in joining in with our next Scavenger photo-challenge? If so, I would sort out a list and we could all 'present' our interpretations at the end of April.  You could do as many as you fancied or choose just one. Then write a word or two chatting about it and link it so we could all share stories and pictures.

Interested? If you are,  let me know and I'll get it up and running!  And if you are not a blogger but still want to join in you could email your images and words and  I'll post them for you.

Equally if you want to do it on your own jolly out -I do recommend the challenge as it really adds another dimension to a good day out!

Think about it and let me know!  xxxxx hawthorn

  3. Yes, very interested as I'm quite down at the moment and need some push and shoving to use my camera again. We used to do something similar when travelling with our children, though no cameras involved (long time ago), just their eyes. Thanks and take care.

  6. Count me in too! Since I do a lot of walking by myself (Beloved's glut prevents him, well that is what he says!) joining in with you et al will be great. I do have a theme for my next planned solo walk but I will tell you about it via email.

    PS I love that your eldest is so into learning about moss - fascinating to think that it has its own species, just like other plants.
