Rinda's Scavenger Hunt

Gosh, wasn't this year a great summer for a hunt? It has been amazing to see posts cropping up all over the internet from old friends and new on what they have taken photos of for Rinda's hunt.

I posted here about my experience of the scavenger hunt and how I persuaded/forced my whole family to get involved whilst we were on holiday in America! I said it then but it was such a fun thing to do together. We laughed about it, searched high and low and were so chuffed with ourselves when after a week we had managed to capture all the photos on the list!

Rinda, thank you so much for taking the time to organise the hunt! You have brought us a lot of happiness this summer.

It is so hard choosing my favourite photo for this post but I had to go with this one just because of the story behind it...


My mum  during our stay was lamenting the fact that no one around us in Virginia seemed to hang out their washing ( a sweeping generalisation but we'll go with it!) despite the fact that it was nearing one hundred degrees. Try as we might we couldn't find a washing line to photograph. Then one day we were traveling along and stopped at an intersection. "THERE!" my mum shouts. "What?!" we all asks, highly worried. "A washing line!" she cries. And there, lo and behold in the back garden looking out onto the road was a clothesline. My mum whipped out her camera and had taken the shot before the lights had gone green!

Can I cheat and have two favourites? The picture below is my favourite in terms of composition and general photo-ness! 


Again, thank you so much Rinda. Whose up for 2013?

Of course you can have two favorites! I love the story of your mom and the pier is beautiful.

What a great mum risking life and limb at the traffic lights to get the Washing Line shot. And what a row of washing! Your pier photo is gorgeous.

I sure am! It's always so much fun, and I love viewing everyone else's pics. Yours are fab! x

I am for sure! Like yours, my family and friends, too, got into the search. We worked on it all summer, and had a great time. Your photo of the pier is lovely.

Love that pier shot - well done for completing inside a week - are you related to Mel? ;o)

amazing how something so simple like a clothes line is quite a favorite with people. Lovely pictures, well done

Both those shots are fab - and so different in their "photo-ness". Yes, I'm very much looking forward to next year - and hopefully in the interim I can get my camera out a lot more.
