Scavenger Hunt Sunday...





Well I'd been planning shots for this all week and then before I knew it I'd run out of time and had to snap four of them tonight in about half an hour (you can probably tell!!!).

Guitar
Music to my ears...
My guitar - not a lot else to say!

Helen in hat
Hat...
Helen in nifty headgear in Northamptonshire.
I made her wear a hat and let me take her photo
 in payment for giving her some of the
Dark Chocolate and Ginger cake I made...
Bribery and coercion works every time.

Perfume
Clear...
Perfume in clear bottle - I do like the light in this one.
If Givenchy are reading this I am available for any advertising campaigns
they might need shooting :O)

Darlek goes for Charlie
Out of this world.
Charlie was unaware there was a dalek
creeping up on him.  The dalek was unaware
that he had just made the biggest mistake of his life...
(You can tell I was getting desperate at this point can't you?!?)

Salt
Sprinkles...
I was going to get some lovely pretty 
cup-cake sprinkles for this and do an arty
shot of me scattering them. FAIL!
I had to use some salt instead - ho hum.

Wait a minute - all Helen had to do to score a piece of your Dark Chocolate and Ginger Cake was to put on a hat and pose for a photo?! I WANT THAT GIG!! :-)

Awfully fun post for one that was thrown together in no time! Speaking of throwing things, I hope you tossed some of that salt over your shoulder after you took that photo. (Or does bad luck not follow if you sprinkled it intentionally rather than spilling it by accident?)

Givenchy owes you big $$$ (or rather, big £££) for that great photo and publicity, even if they don't hire you for future ad shoots.

My favorite is Charlie and the darlek. I have no idea what a darlek is (but think it looks like a cute alien salt shaker!) But I know what a Charlie is, and wonder how the poor darlek fared. Oh dear, I hope that "salt" in the last photo isn't all that's left of the poor little alien salt shaker now!

These are wonderful - I especially love your hat and sprinkles shots.

The Chair Speaks said...

We love the hat and sprinkles shots too. :)

Cedar said...

Nice set! Love the perspective on the guitar!

Buckeroomama said...

At least you got a Sprinkles shot in... I totally only had cupcake sprinkles on my mind and couldn't come up with anything else!

What a fun Hat shot!

Laloofah: Well, I'm shocked that you've never heard of a dalek (I spelled it wrong the first time I wrote this post!), please click here for more info

Poor little alien salt-shaker indeed! (The one in the photo is actually the top of a pen, it was removed from Charlie before he chewed its head off).

I did throw some salt over my shoulder just in case, as I wasn't sure of the correct protocol for deliberately spilling it :O)

And ref Helen, she loves cake and is easily bribed with it to stand around in car parks posing in a hat. Added to that, she also sends me flattering texts and keeps a supply of lapsang souchong teabags in her house just for my visits, so I guess I'm easily bribed as well :O))

Stasha said...

hey salt worked just as well. You made chocolate ginger cake again? I want some.
Love the guitar shot, lovely perspective.

Mum of Monsters said...

I love all these pictures. They all seem very fun!

Lovely shots. Love the cat and the hat. And the guitar - wow! (But I am biased, because I play the guitar myself :))

You have a gorgeous blog!

Visiting you from The Scavenger Hunt.

Blessings,
This Good Life

These are great!! Love the out of this world and music to my ears one!

Nela said...

I like the angle on your guitar shot! Lovely interpretation! :)

Sarah said...

Great photos. I really love your music to my ears.

Aleta said...

I love the out of this world picture and the guitar (but then, I'm partial toward music :)

I realize that in admitting this I am completely opening myself up to ridicule, if not outright contempt, but I have never watched Dr. Who! So I am mortified to learn that the cute little Dalek salt shaker turned out to be evil! Who (pun intended) woulda thunk it? "The Daleks were born without any ability to feel compassion or pity and were motivated only by hate, fear and an implacable belief that they were the superior creatures in the Universe." (Hmm, add "greed" to that and it sounds like a certain group of U.S. politicians, Wall Street firms, multi-national corporations and the animal ag industry!)

At least your co-dependent bribery with Helen is reciprocal. LOL I frankly think Helen is getting off cheap. Me, I'd single-handedly take on the entire fleet of Daleks for a piece o' that cake!

that cat shot is hilarious!

Phoenix Peacock said...

your last minute shots are far from looking last minute! excellent job. and I'm all for bribery. works like a charm :)

Valeria said...

Very cool set. I love sprinkles

Barbara said...

Laloofah: Speechless about Dr Who!!! That list of dalek characteristics reminded me a bit of certain cats ;O)

Laloofah said...

(Pssst, Charlie... your mom's the one who said it, not me!)

I know, I need to check out Dr. Who soon. It was only last year that I first watched Black Adder! I'm slow, but steady. Think of me as a TV Show Tortoise. LOL

Barbara said...

LOL! I wouldn't bother with the early Dr Who programmes, despite what certain traditionalists say they were pretty rubbish. Christopher Ecclestone and David Tennant where the best ones (and Catherine Tate the best companion). I've given up watching the new ones and Pepper and I have transferred our allegiance to Torchwood and Captain Jack!

RuneE said...

A very nice collection of what must be called "this and that" :-)

PS Thank your very nice comment and condolences. they are highly appreciated.

Seizing My Day said...

ha ha... my hubby loves dr. who... ;) clever shot!

Stephani said...

Great interpretations! I tried a guitar photo, but it didn't come out well. Maybe next time!
