Scavenger Hunt Tally

It's time for me to take stock of my progress in completing the 2012 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt and post the last of my finds from my vacation.  I took this photograph of a horse in Dublin, Ireland.  The carriage was carrying tourists back from the Guiness Brewery. 
And, in Park Guell in Barcelona, Spain, I found this musician singing and playing guitar:
With that, it looks like I'm 2/3rds of the way done. 14 down; 7 to go. And I'm pretty sure I know where to find the missing ones. 
Here's my list:
1. A pier
2. A clothesline
3. A border
4. A roadside stand selling something
5. A train
6. A historical landmark
7. A person playing a musical instrument
8. A person dressed as an angel or a statue of an angel
9. A fountain
10. A horse
11. A shadow
12. A maze, labyrinth, or trail.
13. A library
14. A person playing with a ball.
15. Someone dancing.
16. A bride.
17. A church, chapel, cathedral, mosque or temple.
18. A movie poster
19. An outdoor stairway
20. A swing hanging from a tree (or a hammock)
21.  A picture of you standing with something that symbolizes your nation.
How are you doing?

I just have a bride to find! When we went into Cambridge on Sunday we were waiting at traffic lights and my husband saw a bride and groom walking from the green to the city having photos taken. But by the time he pointed it out and I had got my phone out to take a picture - the lights turned green and we had to move on. Missed opportunity!

I've still got a lot to find....but hoping to get quite a few of them when on holiday.

Now, I bet that guy playing the guitar sounded sensational - love the lines and curves in that shot.

Mary B said...

That is a stunning picture of the guitarist love the arches at that strange angle

I have three to go and finding them is proving difficult

Elizabeth said...

Never rode in a horse and carriage, but it looks like fun. I have four more to go. The person playing a musical instrument will be the most difficult.

Abi said...

I love the musician one. Lovely perspective!

Cheri said...

Great shots Rinda! I still have 4 to go.

Sian said...

Not too bad, not too bad. Still looking for a nice clothesline, but maybe I'm just being too picky. I've always meant to take a ride in one of those carriages

laurie said...

this post reminds me that i need to post my own scavenger hunt photos soon! one that i have not found (yet) is a person dancing - you wouldn't think that would be so difficult!

Deb @ Paper Turtle said...

Oooh I love your musician shot, Rinda! Looks like you are getting close with your list! I still have 8 items left.

I still need four. Mr M says that the hardest one for us will be the bride. My daughter did suggest stopping and asking what time the wedding was when we saw some people heading into a church with flowers and greenery but Mr M didn't stop... It has been such great fun - thankyou for setting it up for us.

Denise said...

Looking good Rinda, I still have a few to find - but am getting there. The hammock is the one that's getting me!

Louise said...

Great shots Rinda :-)

Fab photos! I love your scavenger hunt list!
Would have liked to join in this time, but it all went crazy, just about the time you posted your challenge - no let-up since really!
Maybe next time, eh? Hum, hum....

Your composition in the musician one is brilliant! I've only gotten 5 but not stressing, 5 weeks to go more or less :) I posted my shadow one today!

We have horses and carriages here but they tend to be for funerals more than weddings...

Love that muscian shot in the arches. Hoping to find a busker now the Olympics are over and they're allowed back into the underground.

Have got all but one and need to catch up with blogging my finds - here is my second installment http://mrsbeee.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/photo-scavenger-hunt.html

I like that shot of the musician!

I have 7 to go - I was on a roll and the last couple of weeks have been terribly busy. I'm hoping to take a drive this weekend with my camera in tow for a few finds.
