The Great Photo Scavenger Hunt

I got this idea from Flickr & love the thought.  Not a big yahoo fan & flickr was giving me issues, so I thought bring it to the blog.  Will be more fun for me to look back at the photos if they are all linked here anyway!  So I am going to link them as I take them.  Join me? If so leave me a comment so I can check out your pictures too.  🙂

Complete this scavenger hunt by taking a photo of each item on the list. There are 100 items, plus a final self-portrait (#101). You must submit a separate photo for each item. Your Self -portrait must be your final photo. The rest, however, you can take in an order you wish.

This is meant to be fun & challenging. I foresee an approximately one year time-table for completion, because some items are seasonal. Take your time and build a collection you can be proud of. Creative thinking is encouraged, but no substitutions. Part of the idea here is to try new things, so branch out and try to use different photography styles — take a picture you normally wouldn’t.


1. You must submit one photo per item. One photo cannot represent multiple items.
2. The photo must be of the assigned item, no subsitutions are allowed. However, creative thinking is encouraged.
3. The list item number and description must be in the title and/or the description
4. Tag each item with “Scavenger Hunt 101” and the item number in the following format “sh 38”.
5. The Self Portrait must be your final photo (#101), the rest can be taken out of order.
6. All photos must be taken after you have joined the challenge. No archival photos allowed.
7. All photos must be your own. This means you must be the one to press the shutter release button.
8. Photo-shopping is allowed.
9. No nudity.
