There are 7 differences in the photos above. Can you spot them? If you can, send your answers to me by private message for confirmation.

That was fun, Tellywellies! Can we look forward to one of those every week?

Timing might be a little variable but I think I can manage that OK.

Egads, these drive me nuts when I cannot find the last one! Will you be telling us the differences some time down the line?

If a 'spot the difference' is done weekly, the end of the week would be a good time listing the differences in this one.

I think I've got six quite quickly, but don't like staring at pc screens so that will have to do

Great fun! I found seven, though I'm doubtful about one of them, and had to resort to some rather odd descriptions

Me too, Liz! I had no idea what to call half of things I was describing! I'm sure tellywellies had a huge chuckle when reading my communication attempts!

I got 8...But I think one 'difference' wasn't actually a difference, just my eyes playing up.

I know it is off topic but I would like to say that I love the photo, it is a gorgeous scene.

I was wrong, I only got 6. A couple of them weren't differences.

Perhaps we can see a list of descriptions once the challenge is over, anonymous ofcourse.

I agree, Sue, it is a lovely photo. And I must say, it's killing me not to give you all hints on the differences!!

I also was wrong before, and only had five, but have just looked again and spotted my missing two differences immediately
I wonder if we all had difficulties with the same 'last one or two', or if they were all different?

I found 8, too Lioness. But my #7 was that both photos were missing the draft mules to pull the barges. I eventually found the "real" number 7!

Also, when I cannot find that last one or two that when I leave it and come back later, as has been stated, they pop right out.

This was such a neat idea! I think I got all 7, but I haven't had the time to send them in to be sure, plus I'm sure I won't be able to describe them anyway.

Tough, but I think I got them, though my sixth one was a guess...

I believe I was the first to find all seven and PM Tellywellies accordingly - but only because I happened to be on-line when he first posted the puzzle! (I'm not usually on the Internet at 2.30 in the morning!).

I too found it difficult to know the terminology to use so my descriptions consisted of words and phrases like "thingy" and "those things that look like black and white plant pots".

Oh gee, MotherGoose, I use the proper terms, like watchamacallit, and not to mention doohickeys!

I got four easy enough, and an additonal two. The last one stumped me.

Although I am not 100 percent sure if I am correct...Lol! probably not!

I got all seven (confirmed by TW), but spoke of black thingys with white hats (or tops...) and such. Didn't think of comparing them to plant pots

Yes! I have captured the elusive Last One.

I hope I'm right...
