It’s “Z” Wrap Up!

It’s Z wrap up, get it? Z like the end of the letters and Z like speaking with an outrageous French accent?

Where are my Monty Python fans?

The return of the photo hunt seemed to be a popular idea as those of us in the northern climes battle our way through this very cold and snowy winter. By February, we’ve had about enough of this and I think the photo hunt turned into a welcome distraction. We had 8 wonderful participants in the

themed photo hunt this month.

Sybil jumped on board almost immediately! She had her photo hunt, in which she tried to fool us a bit (and succeeded!) posted the day after I announced the hunt!

Next came Dawn, with some very lovely reminders of my favorite time of the year in her photo hunt from the south. Ahhhhhhh!

Robin played in her wonderful Robin way – going far above and beyond the general photo hunt requirements. Faithful readers of Robin’s blog are familiar with Robin’s creative style and were treated to not one, not two but three pretty posts leading us to her chosen word.

Mike thought maybe his choice of words would be a little too familiar to his regular readers, so he mixed up his letters in attempt for it not to be too easy for us. He has a beautifully photographed array of indoor shots leading us to the place that I believe you would find Mike right now if you were to go looking for him!

I was happy to hear that Michaela had decided to play along. It had been a long time since I’ve posted a photo hunt and even longer since she had participated. We had no mystery to figure out over at the Daily Click because we were told that she decided to use her name as her word. Michaela showed us a gorgeous display of her tack-sharp photog skillz.

Carol’s life these days has been a flurry of household activities and get ready for her upcoming cruise (very jealous here, by the way!). She found a perfect word with perfect photos to remind us all of what she has been up to lately.

Isa decided at the last minute that she’d like to play too, and asked if archived photos would be okay to use. You know how loosey-goosey the rules are around here so I said “but of course!” Isa has a colorful arrangement of beautiful objects, but I must admit she stumped me good. Our friend Sybil from up above was the smarty who first figured out Isa’s word!

Nye also came in with a last minute submission. She tricked me a bit by using her first photo to represent two letters rather than one. In the comment section where she revealed the answer, she reminded us about the rule of thirds in photography – that’s where she wanted us to look to discover the real clue to her letters. Nicely done Nye!

If you happened to miss my own photo hunt photo hunt (no that’s not a typo 😉 ) you can find it here.

Thank you so much everyone for your enthusiastic participation! I’ll do my best to come up with some other fun hunts throughout the year.
Happy end of February too! Spring begins in just 3 weeks! Let’s hope it feels like spring really soon!

      • Ok, Google didn’t do so well with this one! It doesn’t make much sense to me. Here’s what it gave me: “Not bad! Only I think that we know about good enough and to first-name basis, right?”
        I’m assuming that the German it gave me for my comment was very formal sounding, and you’re trying to say that we should be using the “familiar” forms of things, right? I leave comments in French on Isa’s blog but I need a little help from Google to remember sometimes, and it always gives me the formal version of “you” in French rather than the familiar.

      • Yes exactly 🙂 “Sie” is the formal word for “you”, and “Du” is what you would use for friends.

  4. LOL! Here’s one (a Monty Python fan)! Watching that clip makes me want to watch the movie again. I’ll have to see if I can find our copy. Thank you so much, Karma. That was a lot of fun. I’m looking forward to the next one. 🙂

    • I am not surprised that you are a Python fan, Robin. So many times it seems we have a very similar sense of humor and we both seem to appreciate the bits of jokes and humor that we pepper our blogs with from time to time. I’m so glad you enjoyed the hunt!

  5. Never saw any of the Monty Python movies…but the clip was fun. And so was this photo hunt…thanks so much for putting it out there!

    • You are very welcome Dawn. If you are ever looking for something to watch and you have the opportunity to try “Monty Python and the Quest for the Holy Grail” I highly recommend it!
