A Blogger Contrived Photo Hunt!

You know what? You blogger-readers are pretty darn awesome. I mean that.
In my last post, I lamented my lack of inspiration photographically as of late. Helpful people that you are, many of you jumped in with suggestions. Robin and Sybil commented that maybe it was time to do a photo hunt again. Robin’s idea was an “around the house” photo hunt. Sybil’s thought had to do with using the letters of the alphabet. Two interesting suggestions. Here’s what I propose:

Choose a word. Or two. Or three. It really doesn’t matter. It could be your name – real name or nom de blog. It could be a favorite noun, verb, adjective or interjection. Anything is fine. Now go find pictures of stuff around your house, objects not letters, to represent each letter of your chosen word or words! Get it?

For example, if I chose “CAT” as my word, I’d need to shoot 3 photos: one photo of an object that starts with “C” – like a cookie maybe, one photo of an object that starts with “A” and one photo of an object that starts with “T”.

We could even throw a little twist into to this one! Don’t tell us what your word is when you post your photos; let us try to spell out your chosen word in the comments. I will leave this part up to you to decide – if you would rather tell us what your word or words are before presenting your pictures, that’s okay too. But it could be a lot of fun for all of us to go around to each other’s blogs and try to figure out the word puzzles. So what do you say? Does that sound like fun? Maybe a good way for us to break out of these winter doldrums?

It would be great if we could have lots of participation in this photo hunt, so if all you wonderful readers wouldn’t mind sharing this photo hunt with your blog readers, I’d be oh so appreciative! Let’s say this photo hunt is due in three weeks – by Tuesday, February 25th. You remember how this works, right? Leave me a link in the comments of this post when you post your photo hunt. And if you need more time, just let me know. Deadlines are really loosey-goosey around here! Questions or comments? Feel free to leave those too.


  1. Yay!! I love this, Karma! Very clever and with a great twist. Now all I have to do is come up with a good word… 🙂

    • Wow, Sybil! That was quick! I’m not ready to have a peek just yet – I prefer not to look at the participants until I’ve settled on my own photos.

  12. You have such good ideas, Karma. I noticed about the hunt when visiting Sybil and Robin’s blogs. Thought yesterday about participating. We had book club here last night and I was going to spell BOOK CLUB. (With long underwear for the “U”.) Anyway, had too much cleaning to do, so shall keep this as a possibility while watching what you all come up with.

      • P.S. I am listening to that 100 years again…love that song! Thank you for sharing that link. So powerful.

        Comment by Kathy — February 9, 2014 @ 12:14 pm

      • Were you familiar with the song before? It always gets me thinking when I hear it.

        Comment by Karma — February 9, 2014 @ 1:14 pm

      • Yes, I’ve heard it on the radio lots of times. Gets me thinking, too.

        Comment by Kathy — February 9, 2014 @ 1:15 pm

  13. This will be fun! I’m a little hindered now as my laptop is in AL with my husband and I’m trying to work on his desktop with all it’s weird things…like I can’t figure out how to download photos other than if I take them with my phone, post them to facebook, then download them to his desktop…sigh…but I’m going to AL NEXT WEEKEND and there might be able to do this with my very own camera (that he also has) and my very own laptop! 🙂 Will think of a word that I might have stuff there to illustrate. THANKS!
