Every year, there is an item that turns out to be really scary. And I never have any idea which one it will be! This year, it was definitely a flag pole with at least three flags on it. That set up is very common here in the United States - a flag pole will often have the U.S. flag, the flag of the particular state and then the flag of the city or company. Apparently, this is not so common in other countries and people really struggled with it. And there's the ones I think will be hard, but turn out not to be. This year, it was the overloaded vehicle. That's one that you had to keep your eyes open for and then stumble upon, but most people managed it.
And there's always an item that turns out to be much more fun and way more interesting than I anticipated. This year it was "a public restroom, bathroom or toilet." I found every single one of the entries in this category fascinating. It surprised me a bit that people found it difficult to take a photo of this item. I guess because I often find myself in an empty bathroom. So glad I included it on the list! I also am really glad I included two or more people wearing matching uniforms. Loved the variety that showed up in response to that!
Every year, there are some items which are ubiquitous but varied. This year, for example, there was the traffic signal. I saw boat traffic signals, regular traffic signals and (surprisingly) many of the London traffic light tree. That's something that I never knew existed. And I really like the idea someone suggested that maybe there were several of you there at the same time. The other item in this category was "someone plugged in to social media." Way too ubiquitous these days (but interesting none the less).
All-in-all, I really enjoyed the hunt! And I will definitely be hosting it again next year.
