2013 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt - And we're off!


Everyone else seems to be posting their finds already so I thought I'd best start showing mine!  If you've not come across the scavenger hunt before then pop on over to Rinda's blog who will tell you all about it.  If you like photography and a sense of achievement in ticking things off lists then this is for you!

Below is the complete list and I have a few things in mind for some  but I am going to post this photo for number 9;  something that is clearly out of place...



We were heading home after doing a little shopping in the village I live in when we did a double take as outside the toy and book shop, Forget-me-not (a lovely independent shop run by two local sisters) when we spotted the Michelin man.  Alex screamed and begged me to turn around for a photo so there I was doing a u-turn at the next available opportunity and we headed back for a picture.   I felt so sorry for the poor guy (or woman - who  knows?!) as it was a sweltering hot day already.  He was there to promote I-Spy books, something that brings back fond memories of childhood holidays and long car journeys.

So 1 down and 20 to go - looking forward to Summer photo scavenging :)

1.   Open air market
2.   Theater for performing arts (not a movie theater)
3.   City Hall, Capitol or other similar civic building
4.   Airplane
5.   A sunset
6.   Someone or something taking a nap
7.   A sign that is intentionally or unintentionally funny
8.   A tower

Photo scavenger hunting is indeed a great activity for those people who love photography. Capturing those items on the list isn't their main concern. The challenge there is to know when and where are they going to spot those things. Talk about a lot of luck and skill. Haha! They really have to be watchful all the time.
