An Invitation

Dear friend-and-sometimes-commenter Renae sent me an interesting email the other day.  It was a link to a “quilty” blog that she sometimes reads.  The blogger had recently participated in a photo scavenger hunt on another blog.  It seems this blog, Postcards from the P.P. – located in what looks like a lovely spot on the coast of England – might be doing the scavenger hunt monthly.  I decided the scavenger hunt, in addition to the new boots, might be another way to encourage myself to get outside more often.  Then I started thinking, why not share this idea with all of you?  I’d love to see your interpretation of Ms. Postcards’ scavenger hunt and she invites anyone to join in.  She has a Flickr pool that photos can be added to, but I thought if anyone wanted to join me on this hunt, I’d do it a la Scott Thomas and invite you to leave me a link to your results right here.

Here is February’s hunt list:

  • a big lorry/truck
  • a big round clock face
  • a bridge
  • a musical instrument
  • a newspaper headline
  • a park bench
  • a postbox
  • eyes
  • something heartshaped
  • something red
  • something with stripes
  • your shoes

I invite you to be as creative as possible with your pictures.  Wouldn’t it be cool to see how everyone interprets the list?  If you’d like to participate, please have your photos posted by the end of the month and drop me a link in the comments.

I’ve temporarily added a link to this post over there on the right under “pages” to allow you to easily add your link in the comments to this post at the end of the month.


  1. Sounds like fun! I’ll see what I can do. I have a lot going on right now but I think I can handle a few of those.

  3. Oh sure… half way through February and you decide to do this! It does sound like fun.
    So just to make sure I understand how this works… we take pictures of the objects in the list and post them on our blog (or wherever) by the end of the month? That simple?

    • Yeah, it would have been better to find out at the beginning of the month, but I didn’t know myself until a day or two ago. I figured I’d work on a lot of this for the week of Feb. 21 since we will be on winter break from school.
      That simple, Michaela! Just remember to come back here and leave me a link to your post!

  4. Okay…I’m in need of some inspiration and the list looks like a lot of fun. I’m in!

  5. Trying to get us all off our butts, eh? 😉

    I’ll give it a go. Some appear easier than others, which is the whole point, right? Let’s just see how clever we can be!

    • Yay! Tracy is going to play!
      Yes – I thought some of the simpler-to-find items might lend a creative presentation. I hope so at least!

  6. Hmm….I just *might* be able to pull this off…

    Sounds like fun…

    • Cool Carsten! I’ll look forward to your shots!

      • It is NOT that I have forgotten this challenge. The only excuse for not submitting my input to this is that February was so short this year.

        Comment by Carsten — February 28, 2011 @ 3:39 pm

      • I’ll let you slide in a few days late to make up for the short month if you’d still like to post Carsten!

  8. Hmmmm… Now that certainly gives me some things to think about…. but I’m pretty sure no one really wants to see a picture of my shoes… lol..

  16. […] I saw this assignment at Scott’s blog and thought it would be fun to participate.  The deadline is March 6th, and I found out about this last night and was able to use February’s photos. I took a few more photos this morning and have to hunt for the rest this noon and evening. As soon as I have everything posted, I’ll link to Karma’s assignment page.  The assignment was through her blog, so stay tune. I finally found all my photos, and this post is my contribution to Karma’s Photo Scavenger Hunt. […]
