Photo Scavenger Hunt

I like to play this game with myself.  I call it “photo scavenger hunt”, not to be confused with another game I play called “photo drive by shooting.”  In this little game, I like to find interesting photos in mundane settings.  If I had children, I think it would be an awesome game to play with them.  Give them each a camera and send them out in the neighborhood and see who can take the most interesting shot.  But since we have no children and our pets cannot properly operate a camera(we’ve tried) then I must play alone.

So today, I decided to walk to our neighborhood park.  Afar, it’s quite the usual suburban cookie cutter house park.  However, look up close and there are beautiful things one can find.  Perhaps, we should all play this little game.  Maybe not with cameras but with our own lives.  It’s easy to get caught up in the mundane.  So next time you are out, see what you can spot.  Perhaps it’s the sky or maybe one solitary leave in the grass.  But whatever it is, it will be beautiful.

Here are some shots I took this morning.  Enjoy!

  1. I totally do this too. I’m not a photographer, but my phone has thousands of pictures of things that are pretty mundane. I think they’re cool, but I really need a memory card!

  2. Ooh, I love doing this! I even tried to set up an online photo hunt at some point, with new themes for every day, so everyone had to take a photo that connected to “murky” or “absent” or even just “orange”. If you want to photo hunt with a stranger, we could come up with random words and have a week to take photos on those themes and then take a look at what the other found.
