2014 Photo Scavenger Hunt for July Linky: items 7, 19 and 21

A few more items for Rinda’s photo scavenger hunt!! Thanks Rinda…I am having so much fun collecting these photos!

Speeding along in the car(George at the wheel) I snapped some rural landscapes for item #7, but the foregrounds were blurred so I applied PSE filters to disguise!

Rural landscape #1 …modified with PSE cut-out filter. I love the way the filter caught the blue sky in the power tower:


Rural landscape #2…since I must include a typical Manitoba prairie landscape: an absolutely flat horizon and a bright yellow canola field. Modified with the dark strokes PSE filter:


If I can find a view with both canola and flax fields side-by-side I will add one more rural landscape.

A public garden for item #19. This garden is at our City Hall.  I love the symmetry with the pots and the shadows of the light posts.  I guess this really could be a triple hit with public garden, photo bomb and lamp posts but I am including it only for the public garden:

And since one is never enough, another public garden. This one is the cottage at the English Gardens in Assiniboine Park:

Assiniboine Park will also show up in a future scavenger hunt item.

And for item # 21 here is a photo of me and a seasonal item…my bicycle:


Is this cheating? I am always stretching the boundaries for the scavenger hunt items!!
