Winners of the 2012 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt

Thank you all so much for participating in the Scavenger Hunt!!!
It made me so happy to see posts from all over the world featuring the 21 items I chose way back in June. At last count, there were over 50 people who participated, and most of you found all 21 items.  I'm giving away two prizes this year.  Winners can choose one of the following six photography books.  The first two are real books:
Beyond Snapshots by Rachel Devine. This book focuses on taking your DSLR off "auto."
People Pictures: 30 Exercises by Chris Orwig.  This book is a lot like a class-in-a-book. It has 30 exercises for taking portraits.  I have this book and hope to work through it soon. So, if you choose this one, we can work through it together.
Or, choose one of these four e-books from Digital Photography School (they are all described at this link):
iphone photography
The Art of Self-Portraiture
Natural Light: Mastering a Photographer's Most Powerful Tool
Transcending Travel: A Guide to Captivating Travel Photography
So, without any further ado:
The winner randomly chosen from those 38 participants who got all 21 photos is 
Jane of Jane's Journal.
And a second winner, chosen from all 54 participants, is
Ladkyis of Ramblings of a Little Old Lady.
You two should email me at rinda1961@yahoo.com with your book selection and your mailing address (if you choose a real book) or you email address (if you choose an e-book), as I will have them sent directly to you.
Thanks again to everyone for taking part. And, yes, I will definitely be hosting the Hunt again in Summer, 2013!

Congratulations to the winners!Thruthfully, though, we are all winners. We had a summer filled with the Hunt. We were like detectives hunting down all 21 of the items on the list. Many of us succeeded, and that feeling is a prize I shall relish until next year's hunt.,
