Take up the challenge...

So today I got a challenge from Jenn.

"...post challenge...if you choose to accept it...go to your camera, pick it up and then walk 50 paces from wherever your camera is...in any direction. When you get to 50 paces, stop. Wherever you are (provided it isn't in the middle of a road, or somewhere else dangerous...take a photo, "artsy" or otherwise and upload it as a post with or without commentary."

I walked to the top of the driveway - 29 steps - and turned right. This is what I found...

Shell Ginger leaf

 Plucky little ant

Back to the centre of the driveway, and turn left... 
(becuase I couldn't make up my mind which way to go!)

A random rusty thumbtack in a tree.

And while I am talking about out and about, I thought I would show you what I  found on Sunday while I was sweeping out the front  - this little lady was on the lounge room windowsill...

If you would like to participate in the 50 paces photo challenge, leave a link to your blog post in the comments :) I can't wait to see what the rest of you come up with!
