Honey, I'm home!

Did anyone notice that there was an absence of random ramblings from Deb's World this week?  You see, I've been away.  Some may say I was sunning myself on a week's holiday on the beautiful island of Ibiza, just off the coast of Spain.  But the truth of the matter is that I was desperately hunting down the last two pictures I needed to complete Rinda's Scavenger Hunt. 
 
Two pictures.  You'd think it would be easy, huh?  An airplane.  Surely that couldn't be difficult with Stansted airport just 15 mins drive away.  And a sunset.  Well the sun sets every day, everywhere, so surely that was a simple one.  Yet those were the two I struggled to find. 
 
So I popped over to see my old friend Mick Jagger in Ibiza Town.  "Mick," I said, "where could I find an airplane to photograph?".  He gave it some thought and then pointed me in the right direction.
And whilst a shot of an aircraft in the sky was beyond the capabilities of the zoom on my little camera, I was able to snap one on the runway of the airport. 
So me and Mick had a wander around the town, he pointed out a few more photos for me to take of things that I had already found but I photographed them anyway so I can choose my favourite at the end of the challenge.  I'll share those another time.

It was getting late; I still had one left to find.  "Mick," I said "where do you think I'd find a sunset?"  Again, he gave it some serious thought, considered it for a while and then, in a moment of inspiration, he once again pointed to where he thought I'd find it



See, he's not just a pretty face  :-s


So, that's what I have been up to.  Now I'm off to browse the blogs to see what everyone else has been doing!

LOL! Love this post - bravo on the inspiration! I didn't notice the absence because I've been absent myself.
