Final Linky for 2014 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt!

Welcome to the final linky for the 2014 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt! And welcome to Half Moon Bay, my home town. Today, I'm going to show all my finds for you, in one place, but you should feel free to create whatever type of post you want . . . feature your favorite post or your most recent or create something new.
A bunch of creepy garden gnomes. . . the creep factor surprised me.
Birds on a wire . . . filtered in instagram. This was harder to photograph than I would have thought. 
A group of tired tourists. . . I think all the tourists posts made me giggle.
A rack of post cards . . . most of these looked the same around the globe.
An urban street scene . . . city life at its best.
A rural landscape . . . found while moving Henry back to University of Oregon
A tattoo on a person . . . taken outside the baseball stadium
A bakery in Oakland Chinatown
Photo-bombed by an elephant, while photographing flamingos
A horn . . . in a pub (of course)
A mascot . . . Smokey the Bear
A sunrise . . . outside Idyllwild, CA
A parade . . . 4th of July in downtown Half Moon Bay
A Juggler  A Birdhouse (alternative B) . . . sigh (I really wanted a juggler)
A sign in a language other than English . . . election day
A lamp post . . . Chamarita Festival
Waterfall . . . Cal Poly, Pomona
A public garden . . . Golden Gate Park, San Francisco
A bus with a picture on the side. . . Ocean Beach, San Francisco
A seasonal selfie . . . me at the Ballpark
So there you have it! My 21 finds for this summer. I really enjoyed hosting the scavenger hunt and loved seeing everyone's finds.  Please add a link to one of your posts (either a new one created to celebrate the end of the Hunt or one of your old favorites). Also, if you participated, please leave me a comment telling me how many of the items you found and leaving any feedback you have to help make next year's hunt even better!

Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt: The End is Near!

Item #7: A Rural Landscape
Hey Everyone!
I know I've been a bit missing in action, but I've been lurking in the background and watching everyone finish up the scavenger hunt. And I've been working on my last few as well. I may not get the juggler, but I've got an alternative.
The Scavenger Hunt officially ends on September 23, and I'll put up a final round-up post to go live on the 25th. I hope everyone who has participated stops by this weekend to link up a post about the Hunt and to let me know how many of the items you've found.
See you then!
