February Photo Hunt

Filed under: Photo assignments — Karma @ 4:46 pm


February is a short month – it is time for me to get  hopping (or should I say “leaping”?) on this month’s photo hunt!  I’ve been trying to think of words for the hunt that will make you think creatively.  I don’t know about where you are, but around here, it has been a strangely mild, relatively snowless winter.  Photographically, I find this rather challenging; there’s been little of interest outside for me – not much snow, frost or ice to make things look pretty and of course nothing is in bloom in New England.  It kind of feels like November all over again, but with no turkey dinner to look forward to!

This month’s list may seem rather mundane, but it is my hope you will interpret as creatively as possible!

  • flake
  • bow
  • mug
  • row
  • bun
  • And because it is February, look for heart shapes in unusual places!  I’m not talking about boxes of candy here.  Include as many as you’d like.

Bonus: leap  – in honor of “leap day” at the end of this month

Hope you’ll find this month’s hunt interesting and challenging.  As usual, leave me a link to your hunt in the comments of this post.  If you’d ever so kindly help me spread the word so we can have lots of participation, I would greatly appreciate it.  Deadline is Saturday, February 25th – with hopes of my publishing a wrap-up before the 29th. Have fun!


  1. I love your photo! It’s not your submission for ‘flake’ is it? (just kidding) 😉 But I really do love it.

    • Ha, ha, Becky, very cute 🙄 I took that photo in a puddle last year.

  2. LOL @ Becky….
    Don’t think I’ll be able to participate, I have too many other things on my mind right now.

  4. Love your self-portrait. 🙂

    And the list! Fun group of words. I’ve written them down and will paste them to my camera bag as I really want to participate this time around.

    • Cool! Glad to hear it.
      I was looking through my archives for a picture for this post when I found that from last year.

  8. Copied the list to my iPhone and am ready to go. Might have to get very creative on the first one since there is currently not a flake of snow on the ground around here. The photo you used here is awesome!

    • Think outside the box on the flake one Scott!
      Thanks – I had no idea how much folks might like my “selfie in a puddle”, LOL.

  9. What a fascinating photo…really fascinating. I stared at it for three minutes (an all-time record.) Don’t know if I’ll participate yet, but I love that you’re doing this!

  21. […] Karma threw me quite a curve with this month’s photo hunt – some of these I just had no idea how the heck I’m going to create an interesting shot featuring the hunted item.  A few I decided to capture using the macro lens with extension tubes to really get some serious magnification: […]
