2012 Photography Scavenger Hunt List...

So today I thought I would share the photos I have so far in the scavenger hunt...
 No 6 - Historical Landmark - Drum Castle
 No 7 - Some playing a musical instrument - Niamh playing this unusual musical instrument in the park at Haddo House
 No 9 - A fountain - at Haddo House - weird thing about this picture is the day I posted it on facebook a wedding photographer posted almost the exact same picture but with a bride and groom in the background...spooky!!
 No 11 - A shadow - Libby balancing on the beams
 No 12 - A maze, labyrinth or trail - leading through the forest at Haddo House
 No 17 - A church, chapel, cathedral, mosque or temple - Haddo House again. I lay on the ground looking up at the chapel for this shot
 No 21 - A picture of you standing with something that symbolises your nation - a field of thistles
and a close up of the thistle

These are the 'rules' from Rinda's blog so you still have plenty time to join in...
Substitute Item (new this year): If you find any of the above too hard, you may substitute a photograph of either a heart-shaped stone or a four leaf clover for one item; however, you may not substitute this item for #21.
Participants are encouraged to periodically post their finds on their blog, but you don't need a blog to participate. On September 21, I will survey the participants and choose a winner, based on the number of items found. If more than one person finds all the items, a random draw will determine the winner. I will also draw a random winner from all the participants. Winners will receive a photography-related prize (either a photography book or entrance into an online photography class). Let me know in the comments if you plan to participate or if you have any questions! Remember the idea is not to search your photo files and find these items, but rather to take the photos between now and the end of summer. Also, let me know if there's something that's impossible for you (do people not hang clothes in the winter in the southern hemisphere, for instance), and I'll see what I can do to accommodate you. It's all about having fun and enjoying the hunt.

Have a great day...xx
EDIT: Not sure why some of this post is highlighted in white, maybe something to do with the fact I copied and pasted from Rinda's blog, I don't know!!


  1. What great photos!! And a fab challenge! I am going to have a go, even If I don't finish in time. Camera ready -let's go!! Thanks for the heads-up!

  4. Hi Kirsti ~ Thanks for the lovely comments you've left on my blog recently. I've loved looking at your photos for Rinda's scavenger hunt. :o) My favorite photo here is the fountain - great shot. Oh, and I love the photo of you in the field of thistles. I've been trying to think of something clever for my self-portrait rather than just standing with my country's flag. Well done, you! :o)

  5. Gorgeous photos :) the thistle is kinda pretty

    Bee happy x

  6. Great pics Kirsti, love the thistle idea. I'm still pondering over that one, might have to go to Edinburgh for the day!
