Smile Photo board Assignment: Scavenger Hunt, June - October 2014

Welcome to the Photo Board Summer Scavenger Hunt for 2014!




The purpose of this Assignment is to get out and have fun using our cameras, maybe learning a few things along the way, so pictures should be new as often as possible (though if you have a relatively new picture that fits a category, you can use it). All cameras and skill levels are welcome.




We'll run until October 15th. No prizes can be rewarded other than recognition for a job well done!



Where possible, please use pictures taken from June. If you do have a recent (2014'ish) picture already on file, by all means post it - but the intent of this hunt is to get out and about.

Thanks! I've wanted to do these but never got myself to actually do it. It's time for me to get my camera out and do something fun with it (well, besides Disney trips! It gets tons of fun on those!) so I'm going to try!

Let's make some magic - Genie, Aladdin

The wonderous Persian Cave, part of the Orient Caves at Jenolan.








The flower that blooms in adversity is the most rare and beautiful of all. - The Emperor, Mulan

This is a helictite growth. Helictites are formed by water slowly entering the caves through pores and cracks in the limestone. Helictites are named from the Greek word 'helix', meaning 'a twist'. They are small irregular growths which proceed in any direction contrary to gravity. The most accepted theory for their growth and development is a combination of capillary action and hydrostatic pressure. The saturated solution eminates from a pore so slowly that it doesn't form a drop. Evaporation occurs and a minute layer of crystal is deposited. A capillary tube slowly develops, through which the solution is drawn, extending the helictite. Because no drop forms, gravity has no effect and the helictite can develop in any direction, defying gravity







Second star to the right and straight on to morning. - Peter Pan, Peter Pan

You might notice the two brighter stars in the upper left side. Draw a straight line and you'll hit the top of the Southern Cross.








I could get used to a view like this. Yep, I'm used to it. Guys, I want a castle. - Flynn Rider, Tangled

It's not quite a castle; but it's the Three Sisters in the Blue Mountains.








It's a rock. - Dot, A Bug’s Life







I'll unleash all my Wilderness Explorer training. - Russell, Up

I always follow the path when in the wilderness and stay well clear of any drops.







Let's Get to the Falls. - Carl Fredricksen, Up

Weeping Rock Falls, Blue Mountains.










The world is my backyard - Thomas O'Malley, The Aristocats

The Australian Alps. Go ahead and build a snowman.

Drink Up, Me Hearties. Yo Ho. - Jack Sparrow, Pirates of the Caribbean: At World’s End.

I did go for a ride on that Tall Ship. This guy insisted that I take his picture.







Sometimes the right path is not the easiest one. - Grandmother Willow, Pocahontas








A little perspective. That's it. I'd like some fresh, clear, well seasoned perspective. - Anton Ego, Ratatouille







What do you want me to do, dress in drag and do the hula? - Timon, The Lion King

My DH dressed up like a Chinese Emperor and showing off his staff skills.






If it's not boroque, don't fix it. - Cogsworth, Beauty and the Beast

The Central Dome of the Queen Victoria Building in Sydney. It's more Romanesque in style; but it sure doesn't need to be fixed!

This is a wonderful spicy Thai Soft Shell Crab salad. Hot, cold, sweet, sour and salty. YUM!








Can I interest you in a dessert this evening? - Linguine, Ratatouille

Chocolate and Orange Souffle








...or.....a Lemon Meringue?







Chocolate. I Smell Chocolate. - Beta, Up
