I've got a pretty good start on Rinda's Summer Scavenger Hunt this year. I'll have a link to a SmugMug gallery up next week sometime, but for now here are the ones I've found so far.
#1 A sign welcoming people to your home town.
We live on the border of Brighton and the city of Rochester so this sign is just a short walk away from our house.
#2 A garden gnome
I found these lively guys for sale at our local grocery store. I gave some thought to bringing one home, but decided against it. I'll have another offering for this in a week or so. My mother-in-law knew I was looking for one, and found one in a neighbor's yard.
#5 A rack of post cards
These postcards were displayed at Sauder's Amish Market when we were there Saturday.
#6 An urban stree scene
Last night was my last photography class at the Community Darkroom, and we were sent out to take photos for the first 45 minutes of class. I didn't expect to have this one checked off until later.
#7 A rural landscape
I knew I'd find a good prospect for this item on our trip to Ithaca on Saturday. I was hoping for black and white cows with a red barn, but was happy with the sheep and the blue silo.
#8 A tatoo on a person
My daughter, Sarah, has wanted a tatoo for years. Frankly, I thought she'd given up on the idea, but that is what she wanted from Adam for Christmas last year. She worked with a tatoo artist in North Chicago to create the tatoo she wanted. The three large stars are for her three boys, Micah and Judah (the twins who did not survive), and Caleb. I knew what her plan was, but was surprised by the size of the tatoo, expecting it to be much smaller. When Rinda published her list, Sarah was here visiting and was willing to pose for a photo.
#17 A lamp post
Another find thanks to my photography class. This light post is next to the Frederick Douglass-Susan B. Anthony Memorial Bridge. You can see the underside of the bridge in the background.
#18 A waterfall
Ithaca is surrounded by gorges and waterfalls. This photograph was on Saturday's agenda.
I'll have my Zoom In, Zoom Out up tomorrow morning, and then I'm off to the Presbyterian Church's 221st General Assembly in Detroit. I'm going as an observer just for the weekend since the head of staff at my church is standing for Moderator of the Assembly. You can read about that here on one of Adam's posts.
