we’re all going on a treasure hunt

This week’s challenge from the Lens Artists is a different one: Tina would like us to search for specific items from the archives

Challenge Items: Sunrise and/or sunset, Something cold and/or hot, a bird, a dog, a funny sign, a bicycle, a seascape and/or mountain landscape, a rainbow, a church, a musical instrument, a boat, a plane, a waterfall

Extra Credit Items:  An expressive portrait of one or more people, a very unusual place, knitting or sewing, a fish, an animal you don’t normally see, a bucket, a hammer, a street performer, a double rainbow, multiple challenge items in a single image.

I have thousands of images in my archives, so I went searching, looking for the more unusual items that could meet the brief. If you click on an image you can go through the gallery and read further information about each image.

Well that brought back a few memories. Nothing for sewing though.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #85 | Treasure Hunt

Published by


I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Ah, but sewing defeated me, although I bet I have a photo of embroidery somewhere and in fact I could take a photo of a cloth my mother embroidered!

    1. They have indeed Jo. Little Lorenzo started school this month and Isla started last September! They aren’t babies for long.

  1. Super job Jude, you did very well! Loved your little ones and the expressive portrait, and the hammer shot could also double as a funny sign(altho I did really love your choice on that one😊). As for sewing, I think that one was sewing OR knitting, which you nailed). Terrific, thanks for getting into it with us!

  2. Excellent variety. LOVE the kid shots. I empathize with the Public Notice sign. I’m still looking, but it sure is dark in here.
