For the third year in a row, I participated in a photography scavenger hunt….tons of fun….items to photograph that I would never think about photographing…items to photograph that I think will be hard to find but turn out to be easy….and items to photograph that I think will be easy but turn out to be hard to find!
The scavenger hunt took me all over the city and for 3 items, out of the city. Within the city I found one item right next door while for others I had to go to the opposite end of the city. A lot of items were found at The Forks in Winnipeg…because I go there a lot and also because there are lots of people and activities there!
The list(in no particular order) and where I found them:
a natural body of water(Gimli, Manitoba),
an ornate door knocker(East St. Paul)
a traffic stoplight(Lockport Dam),
people playing a board game(neighbours right next door)
a flagpole with more than 3 flags(Red River Ex……way on the other side of town)
a turtle, an overloaded vehicle and a person walking a dog: George and Stewie of course(Kildonan Park)
a flower bouquet, someone plugged into social media, a university(downtown Winnipeg)
architectural columns, a tent, people wearing matching outfits, a ticket booth and a panorama taken from up high(The Forks)
a public washroom and a carousel(the zoo)
a metal bridge and a cell phone tower(in my end of town)

Of course, for some items I just couldn’t stop at one.
So, for people wearing matching outfits I got lots of example, including zoo workers, security officers and FIFA women’s soccer fans from the USA and Sweden(fans in the yellow outfits doing their own scavenger hunt):
And for people “plugged into” social media, lots of example too: photos taken on the bus and while waiting for the bus, on the street downtown and at The Forks:
My favorite photo has to be the bouquet of flowers:
So another year’s scavenger hunt wrapped up. Thanks very much Rinda…and I look forward to next year! For the blog wrap-up and the blog linky please click here or on the pink flower photo at the beginning of the post.
