I'm joining in with Kate's monthly scavenger hunt for the first time in ages. This is all part of my attempts to start taking more photographs again, although I admit to a bit of a last minute rush to find some of the photos I'm sharing today!
Post/Mailbox | This one is from my archives. It's one of the postboxes painted gold in commemoration of the achievements at the 2012 Olympics. This one is in Bradford on Avon, about three miles away, so I don't see it often now as I'm not driving through there regularly, but when I do drive past it still bring back memories of that amazing summer - the last summer I spent with my late partner when we watched the Olympics together.
Decay | I was planning to take a series of photos of this rose but in the end only managed a few as it disappeared during a windy night!
Fold | trying to think outside of the box here ... sheep returning to the fold (flock).
Secondhand | this was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this prompt. The top two shelves are packed with secondhand books, mostly passed on to me by my sister. I've just had a big clear out as I wasn't keeping up with her and have only kept the ones I'll definitely read, so these should all be finished with by the middle of next year. Some of the ones on the right hand side of the top shelf are future reading with my book group so have been separated out and will wait patiently until the correct month.
Strand | sorry about the dark shadow in this one! I've chosen a strand of cotton, partly because it represents ones of my plans for next year. As soon as the new carpets are laid, the decorating finished and I have the house to myself, I plan to start sewing again and making my own clothes.
Own choice | This is one of my favourite photos taken a couple of years ago in my back garden.
Many thanks to Kate for organising this.
