#17 - A Lamp Post (& Zoom In/Zoom Out #5)

I had to laugh when I read Rinda's post from last week that said lamp posts seemed to be the most popular find (besides gnomes) so far in this year's Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt because I finally got a start on the hunt last weekend . . . and my first find was #17 - A Lamp Post!


I noticed these lamp posts as Robbie, Daddy and I were walking back to our car after attending a FUN auction in a nearby small town. I'm glad I was also thinking about Helena's Zoom In/Zoom Out meme and zoomed in to capture something unique to these lamp posts - the Texas star!


There are still a couple of days until the official start of summer, but summer is in full swing here with lots of sunshine and temperatures already reaching into the 90s! Is your summer off to a great start? Are you participating in this year's hunt?

Oh yes - great meme-combo and a beautiful lamppost. I have already snapped a decent one, but like you, I think it would be prettier lit so will have to revisit!

Great photos! Summer has started in it's usual way here - a couple of days of glorious sunshine and very high temps (well for us anyway!) then it goes cloudy and cool again! I am definitely joining in the hunt and have got my lamp post! Haven't posted any of my finds on my blog yet, just on Instagram.

A very elegant lamp post indeed, and caught at just the right time of the day too

Perfect capture!

Oh aren't they lovely :). Good start to your collection

These are very elegant ... I doubt I will find anything as nice! Our temperatures are nowhere near as high as yours but it is warm enough to sit out with a long sleeved tee shirt and jeans on :).

I got a lamp post picture while in Key West. Thought I might be able to knock out the list there, but didn't even come close.

I found it fascinating how many Texan stars or state shapes or xxxx there were everywhere I looked in Texas. Very fun to discover :)
