August Photo Hunt

Yes, I know it is still July.  And I know that right now it is time to be working on Scott’s assignment, but I had an idea for my next photo hunt that I thought you might like to keep in mind as you are going about your summer activities.  I would like you to show me summer in a rainbow of colors.  Some of you may remember Scott’s assignment from the fall about showing autumn.  I chose to do my assignment by posting a photo in each color of the rainbow.  I hope that you all, especially Scott, don’t think I am copying Scott’s idea – although it was definitely inspired by him.  I’m still calling this a photo hunt even though I am not assigning you specific items to hunt for; I am asking for a photo for each of the prominent rainbow colors: red, orange, yellow, green, blue and purple.  Each photo should show something specific to summertime.

Bonus: a self-portrait of you in the summertime!

Just like with the past photo hunts, leave me a link to your photos in the comments of this post. I will leave a link to this post available on the sidebar over there on the right side of the page, and I will post a reminder come August as well, since some folks might not be looking for my hunt until then.  I will also post a re-cap of all the results. The purpose of my hunts is to get you out shooting and having fun, so new photos are preferred, but if you have the perfect shot a couple of the photo hunt  items in your archives, feel free to use them.  I’m giving you LOTS of time for this one – due date of Sunday, August 28th – so I’m hoping to get lots of participation.  As always I’d greatly appreciate if you helped me let people know about the assignment by blogging, tweeting or Facebooking a link to this post.  Let me know in the comments if you plan to participate and if you have any questions.


  1. I am definitely going to try to participate this time!! 🙂

  13. Ahhh.. A rainbow of colours eh… I think you should make it slightly more testing though, and ban flowers… lol… I’m kidding… Well at least it’s an easy hunt to remember… 🙂

    • I think I could have a revolt on my hands if I banned the flowery type objects!

      • I know that colorful flowers are easy to come by, but I’m always on the hunt for ways to improve my photos of flowers and always ready to make a go at it. I still didn’t get quite what I wanted, but I was glad for the excuse to try. 🙂 (Link posted below –comment #33?) -ellen

  14. […] So that’s what I’ve got for Scott’s assignment. I had also thought of trying to incorporate a penny or my lens cap into a shot to show scale, but never found the right subject matter for these. A couple of ideas if someone’s still trying to think of something to do. Also, wanted to mention that Karma has posted our August assignment early – check it out!! […]

  44. There’s an interesting webpage that has just been deleted, but thanks to the miracle of hibernation, it’s still open in Firefox. The problem is, when I save it, it seems to attempt to retrieve the page from its source on the internet, which no longer exists. Is there any way I can configure Firefox to save the locally-held files instead?.
