Photography scavenger hunt

For the second year now I'm taking part in Gallo Organico's 2016 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt. And this time I planned that all my pictures would be taken in Australia. However, because of a tragedy while I was vacationing there, my delight in this project waned and I wasn't able to take all the pictures I wanted.

1. A "wild heart" - a naturally occurring heart. The Uluru or Ayers Rock is, as my niece cheerfully informed me when I told her about this hunt, is the “red heart” of Australia.


4. A book or magazine read during 2016


5. A porch or deck


6. A camper (caravan)


7. A family gathering


8. A drawing, art project, artistic photograph, scrapbook page, greeting card, or art journal page created by you.


9. Someone playing with, in, or around water. This man was on a jetski. I snapped the picture while on the plane.


10. A bicycle


11. Fresh produce


12. A window


13. The moon


14. A buffet of food


15. A team logo


16. A map showing a trip taken during the time period. Parking was difficult here and we had to go around this place before we found a spot.


17. Twins. These dolls were in the same box and they do look alike.


18. A supermarket cart, basket or trolley full of groceries


20. Someone laughing


21. A photograph of you with a newspaper or calendar page from the time period covered in the Hunt.


alternative 1: a lighthouse


alternative 2: a baby (human or animal). That's a stuffed toy, a baby dingo in the mouth of its mother


Scavenger Hunt List
1. A "wild heart" - a naturally occurring heart

3. A skeleton, bone or x-ray

Alternatives - if you're having trouble finding any of the above, you may substitute from this list (but you may not substitute for item #21):
alternative 1: a lighthouse
alternative 2: a baby (human or animal)

Again, I failed to find three photos. It was the same as last year. At least, I am pretty consistent. And although there is still time to complete the list I'd rather not, as I've explained why at the outset.

Door knockers are impossible to find here in the Philippines. Sadly, I didn't find any three flags on a pole or people playing a board or card game. I had fun though and look forward to next year's scavenger hunt. Thank you to Rinda for thinking of this.
