2013 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt

I've just discovered the Summertime Scavenger Hunt over on Rinda's blog Gallo Organico.
Doesn't it sound like a great way to look at the world around us a little differently this summer?

The Scavenger Hunt began in June and the deadline is the last day of summer, September 21.
We're leaving for a trip around the middle of September, so, today we turned a visit to a vide grenier in Trevieres into a Scavenger Hunt where I found several items on the list.


1. Open air market
2. Theatre for performing arts (not a movie theatre)
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 either intentionally, or unintentionally, funny
8. A tower
9. A photo of 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 window or a mosaic
15. A fire truck or police car
16. A windmill
17. A candle or candles
18. 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 (no substitutes allowed for this one
Two substitutions are allowed to replace any of the above that might prove difficult to find and they are:
A person wearing an outfit (or item of clothing) that symbolizes your country
A sundial

This what I found today.....

  1. The scavenger hunt does look entertaining. I am far behind in posting and commenting, so I must catch up. Your roses are lovely and, of course, I love the horse photos. Have a great vacation.

  2. Maggie, the scavenger hunt does sound like fun. I'll print the list off and begin to play. I need another project! '-)
    The summer heat has hit us with a vengeance, so I am trying to get my walk in early morning. Then the remainder of the day is pretty much spent inside. J & S are off to western states and cool air. Now that Sadie is with us, we don't travel as before. You know how that is. '-)
    Hugs to you and the senior partner. ~ Sarah

  3. What fun! I may have to join in too!

  4. That sounds like a fun challenge. I'm tempted to join in but I'm already in the middle of an alphabet photography challenge. It's been challenging to keep up on that. So, it would probably be silly to add more to my to-do list. lol I'll look forward to watching what you come up with for your challenge list. Have fun!

  5. I have no idea what a scavenger hunt is, i must try to find out. It looks like fun
    Have a nice week Maggie

  6. The scavenger hunt sounds like fun Maggie! Hope you're enjoying your summer :)

  7. Good job on your hunt items. It sounds like a fun summer activity.

  8. This is a great idea na dyou are really on a roll! I wonder if she'll do a fall or winter one? I'll keep my eyes open!

  9. Great shots for your scavenger hunt! Sounds like a fun way to spend the summer. Have fun and enjoy your day!

  10. Brilliant photos Maggie, you've nearly caught up with me already - glad my post got you playing along and don't forget to link up on Rinda's site so she can see that you're playing along :)

  11. I've chanced upon other bloggers who also do scavenger hunting with the same list, Maggie. Are you done with it, by the way? Rida's list was definitely thought-provoking but exciting at the same time. It will really take you some time to finish! Haha. But that's fine as you will surely enjoy it. :D
