A Few More Scavenger Hunt Photos {from the beach}

Today I'm checking off three more items for
Wanna' see?
 
 Item #16 - a windmill
 
I took these photos on our drive to San Diego last week. I always love this part of the otherwise boring and desolate looking scenery on the way to California - when the windmills are in view and spinning. I had hopes of making a little trip to northern Arizona for a shot of a really cool windmill that I know, but I like these photos just as well, so I think I'm calling it good for item number sixteen.
 

 I already had a mosaic photo for item number 14, but I'm thinking that I like this one better: 
 

It's on the boardwalk at Pacific Beach in San Diego. Love!

 
And then there was item number nineteen - a fisherman. I knew I'd have an opportunity to take a photo of at least one fisherman during our California beach trip, and I took this photo the day we arrived. I just love the colors of the sky and the sand, and the fisherman's reflection too. I thought I was done and ready to move forward for this item...
 
#19 - a fisherman
 
The next morning we had plans to walk out onto a nearby pier and to my delight there was a kid's fishing derby going on that day. So I took a couple more shots, but I think I still like the one shown above the best for the fisherman prompt.

 
One of the things I love about Rinda's summer photography scavenger hunt is that it keeps my eyes open and searching for things I wouldn't normally pay attention to. As we were people-watching one of the days we were in San Diego, a guy rode by on a unicycle and Doug pointed him out. That was so two summers ago, but it's just so fun to continue to play along.

Sixteen down, five to go.
Four weeks left to find them.

Oh I love that mosaic - what a gorgeous addition to anywhere, wondering if I can work something like that in to the next house now.... The first fisherman photo is very peaceful.

Wow so many windmills. I know what you mean about keeping your eyes peeled. We still point out the elusive angel from last year and still laugh about my typo which meant I searched all summer for a photo of a hose rather than a horse!

Sian said...

Yes, I love that it lets us catch a glimpse of things that we wouldn't have seen otherwise from around the world ..like that gorgeous blue sky haha
