Many thanks to Rinda for organising the hunt again this year. It's been good fun, as usual, and I've enjoyed every minute of it; it's encouraged me to visit some of the places on my to-do list, just to get a particular photo, and opened my eyes to some of the things in my neighbourhood that I've failed to notice before - I know where all the mobile phone towers are now!

  1. OMGosh. I am in LUST. The flags are the best ones I have found yet. And I thought I'd seen a bunch, because I was hoping for inspiration. But that photo was incredible.

    I also love the carousel, because there doesn't seem to be the summer events in the States that showcase them. But the traffic signals and the unique door knocker were high on my list of photos I thought were so incredibly unique and distinct. Very, very impressive photos. And I like your selfie, too!

  3. You have some stunning photos. All so interesting. The public toilet photo and the real old fashioned carousel were great finds.

  4. A great selection of photos. Your carousel is gorgeous, just what I imagined finding, and the urinals make me smile every time I see them.

  5. Oh my, that restroom photo really made me smile - and your board game is a super one too. You've clearly kept your eyes peeled! Great job on the flags - I am afraid they eluded me ... Thank-you for putting them all together like this so they can be seen as a big group. I must remember this for next year!
