2013 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt and a great night out!

Last Tuesday I took Alex, her friend and Josh to see a show.  As I was walking up to the building I realised it qualified for Number 2 on the scavenger hunt - A theater for performing arts.  The building used to be a Zion church and looks very striking nestled amongst the modern homes either side.

It's now called the Z Arts centre and like Julie Kirk I was pleased to see a sign outside proclaiming what goes on within!  In fact not just a sign but a banner; four of them to be precise...

And this is what we had come to see.  Footloose! (I can hear you singing along already!!) It's one of my favourite films so I was interested to see how it adapted to stage.  It was a special performance as it was the same youth group who did a stunning version of Les Mis earlier this year and Alex's close friend had a starring role as the Pastor's wife.  It was opening night and with lots of support from an enthusiastic audience and a very hyped cast of students we enjoyed a great show!

So my list so far looks like this and I have a couple of more I have photographed but not blogged.  I'm hoping I can find a few in my up coming holiday.  If you want to find other finds then head on over to Rinda's blog

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
9.   A photo with someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong
10.  A bench that is outside
11.  An animal in a zoo, aquarium, nature preserve, etc.
12.  A cloud in the shape of something (please specify what you see)
13.  A fence
14.  A stained glass object or a mosaic
15.  A fire truck or police car
16.  A windmill 
17.  Candle(s)
18.  Your local pub/bar, coffee house or tea shop
19.  A fisherman
20. A dinosaur
21.  A photograph of you with an artistic tool or craft supply (you cannot substitute for this item)
Bonus/substitute items.  
If you find any of the above items too difficult, feel free to substitute either (or both) of these items.  You can substitute up to two items, but you cannot substitute Item #21:
A person wearing an outfit (or item of clothing) that symbolizes your country
A sundial

Happy snapping and hunting!

I don't usually do much theater but I think that looks fantastic! Loved the movie so I am sure I would enjoy that :)

What a great occasion, and perfect for another step in completing the photohunt. You are right - the architecture is very striking.
