On Sunday, June 1, I posted the list for this year's Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt, and I was thrilled to see so many people blogging about it and reposting the list. You can read full details about the hunt at this post or by clicking on the photo on the left side of my blog. And, from what I can tell, BJ takes the prize for being the first to actually blog about a find! She posted this really cute gnome in her garden and quaint village welcome.
Her entire post is at this link. And Helena was also very quick with another gnome. I don't think I realized how popular these little guys are!
Before long, Ladykis revealed that she has a lamp post inside her house and was photobombed by her little boo! Check out her entire post here.
And can you guess who owns this tattoo?
My first find, an sign welcoming you to my home town, is up top. I actually live in a place called El Granada, but we're unincorporated and don't rate an official sign of our own. I like that this sign has the population and elevation because it tells you a bit about where I live - a small seaside town. I think I'll find an official "Welcome to ..." sign before the end of the Hunt, but I wanted to at least get on the board.
In other Scavenger Hunt news, Kathryn Trotter has set up a facebook page called Summertime Picture Scavenger Hunt 2014. It's an open page, and anyone is welcome to join, although participation there is certainly not required. Similarly, feel free to use #rindas2014photohunt on instagram. Beautifullily1 has already posted a bakery and a mascot there. You can always follow me on instagram @rinda1961. But no worries if that's not your thing, either.
Finally, my friend Deb Turtle created a blog badge for the Hunt. It's on the sidebar; feel free to grab it. I'm very grateful to her, as the technology for that simply escapes me!
So, thanks to everyone for your enthusiasm! It's going to be a great summer hunt. Let me know if you have any questions or concerns, and remember you have until September to find as many as you can, so don't worry if you don't stumble upon a juggler right away . . .
