Favorites Photography – April Photo Hunt

Did you know it has been a year since I started creating my photo hunts?  In February of last year, I posted a link to another blog’s photo hunt.  The idea seemed popular and I was encouraged to make my own lists.  In April of 2011, I presented my first list.  I’ve struggled with finding ideas to keep it interesting over the last year.  By far the most popular hunt was October’s Idiomatic Hunt.  All who participated really stepped up with their creativity.  I’m thinking the openness of the possibilities for that hunt are what got so many of you interested, and so, I’m posting this month’s hunt with a similar openness.  I have two objectives in this month’s choice: 1) to give you a creative spark and 2) to find out more about you!

For this month’s photo hunt, please photograph at least four (more than four are most welcome) of your favorite things (and I’m not talking about brown paper packages tied up with string!)

Suggestions (but not limitations!):

  • food
  • drink
  • flower or plant
  • color
  • animal
  • vacation spot
  • hobby (other than photography or blogging!)
  • space to relax at home
  • sport

BONUS/CHALLENGE: How well do you think you know me?  How much have you been reading over the last two years?  Take a picture of something you believe to be a favorite of mine!  My archives are listed by month over to the right in a drop down menu if you need a little help! 😉

As usual, new photos are preferred, but if you have some favorite shots in your archives that you’d love to use, please feel free.  April 28th is the due date for this hunt.  Please leave a link to your post in the comments of this post.  I’d be ever so grateful if you’d help spread the word!  Thanks very much and have fun!


  1. Well well well….might have to do a little traveling to do a new photo of one of my favorite things….good excuse anyway!!

  3. Oh, this will be a hard one for me as I tend to do better with a specific challenge! Plus, I wish we were in the middle of summer as most of my favorite things tend to happen during that time. Yep, a challenge indeed! 🙂

  11. […] Karma has posted her selections for the April scavenger hunt. She’s suggested that we post at least four photographs of our favorite things. This one was a bit tough, because I seem to have a lot of favorite things, but I finally picked a few pictures that I think best represent my favorite things. […]

  20. […] Karma’s Photo Hunt this month is to photograph four of your favorite things.  I thought this would be really easy, but that turned out not to be true.  I have so many favorite things (and yes, that would include brown paper packages tied up with string…lol!) that I couldn’t make a decision about which four to feature.  I’ve cheated a bit by making some collages (with some new photos, but most from the archives) under general categories that have allowed me to include lots of my favorite things.  Since Karma specifically said “things,” I have not included people.  My family, of course, are tops on any list, but they are not things and that eliminated them automatically.  It made it easier for me, too, because none of them (as far as I know) wish to appear on the blog.  I don’t know why not.  I might make them rich and famous.  Okay, maybe not.  I don’t have that much blog traffic (another reason for them not to worry about showing their mugs around here).
