In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge (from a long time ago, trying to get back into the swing of things so picking up a few of the previous challenges):
So ‘Eye Spy’ as a theme. Open to a certain amount interpretation. Amongst otherthings I could base it around eyes, or perhaps just things that stand out – but then that’s simply photography really.
There could have been several other interpretations but I decided to go a little more obvious. A game of eye spy running through the whole alphabet – so this will be a long one, but mostly photos. There will be some letters with more than one photo, but I have used every letter at least once and every one has been used properly.
I hope you enjoy, here we go.
Eye spy with my little eye, something beginning with:
A – the A1
B – Barn Owl (taken at The Raptor Foundation)…
…or bridge (this is the Forth Rail Bridge)
C – Castle (this is Bolsover Castle in the mist)…
…or Cathedral (this is Bristol Cathedral)
D – de Havilland Dragon Rapide (taken at The Shuttle Worth Collection during the Military Pageant 2015)
E – Eyes, they are even eagle eyes (taken on a day at The Raptor Foundation)
F – Fountain (this is the Perseus and Andromeda fountain at Witley Court)
G – Grim Reaper (a manipulation of the effigy of Death on Sophie Charlotte’s sarcophagus)
H – Heron (seen when walking on Arthur’s Seat in Edinburgh)
I – Iguana (resident at the Exotic Pet Refuge)
J – Joust, huzzah!
K – Kaleidoscope (this one is at the Camera Obscura in Edinburgh)
L – Leopard (this one is an Amur Leopard resident at Edinburgh Zoo)…
or Lyvedon New Bield (that’s me with the family – the camera was sat on top of the camera bag on a timer for this shot)
M – Meerkat (another resident at Edinburgh Zoo)
O – Octopus Kite (yes, an octopus kite, and not a Dementor, at the Dunstable Downs Kite Festival
P – Peacock
Q – Quidditch (I kid you not, this owl’s name is Quidditch – one of its parents was in the Harry Potter Films, another resident at The Raptor Foundation)
R – Roses
S – Snow (This was a view from Edinburgh Castle)
T – Trebuchet (this is at Warwick Castle
U – Urban areas (this is the view over Edinburgh from Arthur’s Seat)
V – Vulcan
W – Weapons display (in Warwick Castle)
X – Xanthic (yellow) flower (a lily and a daffodil)
Y – Yak 50s (displaying at The Military Pageant at The Shuttle Worth Collection)
Z – Zebras (at West Midland Safari Park)
That brings us to the end of this rather long game of Eye Spy. I hope you enjoyed this as much as I have enjoyed going through some old photos to find them all.
Any comments welcome.
