Photographers choice – monthly blogging challenge

End of the month and time for the Monthly photo blogging challenge with this month’s theme being photographer’s choice. What to choose – my first thought was take photos of my favourite things, Ken, Cookie, Muffin, Bramble, and cake, but as they all feature in a lot of my blogs anyway I thought that might be a bit predictable. It took me a while to decide what my choice was until we went past the below place with a Tardis in the backyard and that’s when I decided to take pictures of the quirky things people have in their yards.
1. A home in Tayvallich, on the west coast of Scotland, where the doctor seems to have stopped for a visit or to get his home/transport fixed as it looked a bit rough around the edges. Makes me wonder why they have a Tardis there – maybe it was for a birthday party or just as a present for someone. For anyone who isn’t a Dr Who fan (I’m not really but I have to admit that I loved it when David Tennant was the doctor as he is adorable) Tardis stand for: Time and relative dimensions in space – that will be useful if it ever comes up in a quiz.
2. This is a yard we go past regularly, just outside Nairn, two old cars slowly being taken over by nature to the point that they almost look beautiful (I’m sure my beloved thinks they are things of beauty just because they are cars). Once all the wild flowers and grass die down come Autumn then they’ll just look scrappy again.
3 & 4. These two creatures are in a yard we go past on the way home from work near Culloden battlefield. The whole yard is lovely and I love the quirkiness of these creations that are scattered throughout the garden. The first one is obviously a viking and there are animal skulls scattered around him. The second is just a very happy chappy with his big toothy grin.ย 

5. The final oddity is in our Landlords yard which means it’s in our yard, and it’s a modern standing stone circle. Maybe hundreds of years in the future archeologists will find this circle and be able to tell things about us by the stones. Perhaps I should bury something near one of the stones so that they can speak knowledgeably about our way of living.

That’s it, my five pictures that show the quirky and odd things that people have in their yards. Why don’t you pop over to P J’s blog and see what my fellow bloggers have come up with – clickย HEREย to see.

Until next time, be good, stay safe, and take note of what interesting things people near you have in their yards.

P.S: Cheating slightly I know but I have to include at least one of my five favourite things and I’ve chosen Muffin as she’s not been well.

  1. You have done a photo for just about everything I love taking photos of! First of all the Tardis is awesome. And I love graveyards… I had a black cat, I love old things breaking down in fields and forests and I love cool creature things. Great job!


  2. Thanks Tamara, I love that we have standing stones in our yard – I might have to dance around them on the winter solstice. Muffin has renal failure but as she's had it before we're hoping for the best.


  3. Hope Muffin feels better soon ๐Ÿ™‚ I love the stone circle. It looks hauntingly beautiful. The creatures are awesome. I love seeing creative things people do in their yards.


  4. I love your idea for this challenge's theme! Well done. That photo of the cars being overtaken is really cool. I like the look of it all. Pretty neat. Nice job this month. And I hope your cat has been feeling better!


  5. This is a great post! I love that someone has a TARDIS in their yard! Hilarious! ๐Ÿ™‚ I've also seen cars overtaken by wildlife, and you are right, they do look amazing! I love how you ended your post with your cat Muffin. How did he get his name? He certainly doesn't look like a \”muffin\” to me. ๐Ÿ™‚


  6. Thanks Mandy, I'm glad you enjoyed all my oddities. We have two cats, Cookie and Muffin and I guess it's just because I'm a little food obsessed. She's a dark chocolate Muffin but usually her name is Muffin Monster.
