2013 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt ~ June Sharing

2013 Scavenger Hunt

Rinda over at Gallo Organica is hosting her third Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt and I am in again. I am also working on the Chosen One and SweetGirl participating this year. Rinda considered having dragonflies on the list. SweetGirl has gotten pics of about 4 in the last week, too bad they weren't included.  Last year Rinda had a "bride" as one of the items so I was realllly hoping she would be an equal opportunity hunt creator and assign us a "groom" this year. But noooo, there is no "groom" on the list, there are things like windmills, dinosaurs and "a cloud in the shape of something (be specific as to what you see)"  Ohhhh I am so bad at that last one @@ but the hunt is always fun and makes you have your camera at the ready. This year you can also tag your captures on Instagram by using #summertimescavengerhunt"

You can check by our blogs or IG to see our finds but why not join us?
To see my finds throughout the summer just click on the tab at the top of the blog that says
I've decided that I am going to challenge myself to get multiples of all almost all of them. In late September I'll know which one I want to use.

To get  others' catches so far this summer click over to this post at Rinda's. People are around the world are participating so you really do have items that will vary a great deal and things that are the same no matter where you are.

  1. So many police cars! It's funny that you have multiple benches and so do I. I think there a few on the list that I will find more than once. Great start :o)

    1. lol Fi, I see great layouts for those cars and benches!

  2. Wow - what a variety of police cars! LOL! I really like how you've put them all in a tab. The sunset shot is so beautiful!
    Thanks for linking up this morning.

    1. Tks, that was a true point and shoot while her cousin the professional photographer was getting amazing shots. The tab was the only way I could figure out how to not be obnoxious with all my multiples lol

  3. That has to be the most stunning sunset I have seen so far! Beautiful.
    Clearly, outside benches are plentiful in your corner of the world - how will you choose a winner?

    1. I think the subjects help that photo of the sunset ;) So far I am most drawn to the magenta metal one but we are only halfway through summer lol

  4. I've really enjoyed looking at your photos so far. I am doing the same as you and taking duplicates and deciding which one to keep at the end of the summer. It almost feels too early to be taking the photos and crossing them off the list - what happens if a better one comes up?!

    1. Exactly, Becky! Plus I wanted it to be a summer long challenge versus me being done halfway through.

  5. I really need to get started!!

  6. You have some amazing photos. I love all the benches and police cars. I saw something pretty cool in one of your cloud photos ... I wonder what you saw in it? That is one prompt open to the most interpretation but the one that I am having the hardest time finding!

    1. ohhhh I'll have to remember to ask you later in the summer what you saw!!

  7. Great collection of benches! I still have nothing for the cloud photo. You'd think it would be the easiest but we have been so overcast we rarely see individual clouds.

    1. All this rain has made it pretty hard to find white fluffy clouds! Thankfully we've caught a break this week.

  8. Great collection Beverly...must go and. Sort my own out!

  9. Multiple items? Now there's a challenge! I think I will be lucky to manage one of each! Will be watching with interest :).

    1. funny, Alexa, once you've found one, you start noticing more lol


YOU ROCK! Seriously, I love getting comments, so know that you have put a bit of added sunshine in my day. Thanks so much and I hope your day is glorious!
