Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt 2013: Dinosaur hunting

Hi you.

I'm almost there you know? How about you?

I've now found [and blogged] 18 of the 21 items on the Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt hosted by Rinda of Gallo Organico!!

And now ... after an eagle-eyed James spotted a familiar shape peeking out from one of the decorative metal paving slab along Redcar seafront ... I'm about to share my 19th item ...

Item No.20: A dinosaur
Can you make it out? It looks like it's been trapped inside the molten iron ... or else like a worn away rock which reveals a fossil beneath.

I'm no great dinosaur expert but *awful joke alert* I'm going to stick my neck out and say it's a brachiosaurus:
It's great isn't it?

All along the promenade there are different metal tiles each with an unusual design 'trapped' inside:
And ... as I walked along, 'ooh''ing and 'aah'ing and taking photos of the fabulous steam-punkish designs ... do you know what I started to think?
Wouldn't they make AMAZING embossing folders?
I think whoever designed these slabs needs to team up with Tim Holtz post haste!
So 19 down ... just 2 to go! And I've already got one of those waiting in the wings. The only photo remaining to be taken yet No.21 which requires me to pose with 'an artistic tool or craft supply' ...
... and  I think I should just about be able to manage that one!
Hoping your weekend is treating you well.


  1. Yay! I've been wondering about the dinosaur on the list, and very tempted to invite you down here to visit our Victorian dinos ( Loving what you found closer to home though, and that the whole piece looks kind of like an ammonite, too.

  2. Yes, I love your dinsoaur "capture"

  3. Aren't they stunning? Such a great find. I do like the scissors one! Yes, Tim Holtz take note :).

  4. Love your dino! I still need a cloud shape which is proving much harder than I thought it would.

  5. You're ahead of me!
    And I love your dinosaur, but I've got a dinosaur capture planned out that's pretty cool, too.

  6. They are amazing slabs! And yes, they would be FAB embossing folders.
