I have had so much fun hosting the 2012 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt, and I am sad to say that it is almost over. It officially ends on Friday, September 21. On that date, I will publish a post asking all participants to comment and let me know how many of the items you found during the summer. I will also ask you to direct me to your favorite photo if you want (although that's optional). Participants will have until Sunday night, September 23 to leave a comment. I will be giving out two prizes: one chosen at random from all those who found all 21 of the items and one chosen at random from all participants (so definitely leave a comment, even if you didn't find all of the items). The prizes will be photography-related Let me know if you have any questions!
And keep hunting! Earlier this week, I went to one of my favorite out-of-the-way beaches in the hopes of finding my penultimate item (a historic landmark). There was no landmark where I expected it to be, but I did find a whole bunch of heart shaped stones, just in case I can't find it before Friday. I still have #21 left as well, but I'll be posting that one on Friday. Are there any still eluding you?
See you all at the end of the week (if not before). In the meantime, I want to share a comment on the original scavenger hunt posting which really touched my heart:
THANKYOU so much for encouraging me to get out my camera and use it for fun. I work as a professional photographer and only usually get my "big" camera out for clients. I usually do all our family snaps on my phone and or point and shoot camera like everyone else. However last weekend I took out the BIG camera for photos for the hunt, I had such fun and got super portraits of my son, daughter and husband that I'd be happy to buy off myself! I have posted the first images on my blog and will seek to upload the rest before 21 Sept. So grateful to have been kick started to do some photos for me. And her first post (a roadside stand) is a hoot! Check it out here. You won't be disappointed.
