Photo Board Assignment: Summer Scavenger Hunt, June-September, 2012

Welcome to the Summer Scavenger Hunt!

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 September 15th. No prizes can be rewarded other than recognition for a job well done! Once you post ten categories, however, you will be eligible to put the 2012 Summer Scavenger Hunt Avatar in your signature.



Let's see what you've got!

A PDF version is available here if anyone else wants to print a copy.

I'm going to kick start this hunt.

I acknowledge that these pictures were taken in April...but it seems a shame not to share them. And I will be on the hunt for these items over the next 3 months!


Welcome

Bumblebee






Upside down

Double Decker









Nobility
In the Buddhist faith, the Four Heavenly Kings are four gods that guard a cardinal direction. In Chinese, they are collectively known as Feng Tiao Yu Shun.

ZengZhang, Heavenly King of the South. Feng corresponds to the edge of the sword. When ghosts and monsters dare to step in, he chants an incantation and throws his magic sword up into the sky. In a flash the sword flies down like lightning, hitting, sometimes even killing the intruder. He resides in the Glass Palace on the south of the Four Heavens.





Chiogu, Heavenly King of the East. Tiao corresponds to the sound of “tune”, hence the pipa or musical instrument. On the battlefield, he plucks the musical instrument and gives his enemy a headache. So he wins the battle. He resides in the Golden Palace on the east of the Four Heavens.





Duowen, Heavenly King of the North. Yu means rain and the umbrella, although in this case he is holding a stupa. Whenever he puts up his umbrella, the sky over the battlefield turns dark and a cyclonic storm howls, sending sand and rocks whirling about. The eyesight of his rivals is sure to be impaired. Hardly has he shut up the umbrella when the rivals are drawn into it and arrested. He resides in the Crystal Palace on the north of the Four Heavens.





GuangMu, Heavenly King of the West. Shun refers to the symbol of the crimson dragon. Once released, the dragon mounts the clouds and rides the mists. All of a sudden, this animal spurts out water and disperses his enemy. He resides in the Silver Palace on the west of the Four Heavens.





What is it? These are all fruit!

Mangosteen and Dragon Fruit.





Durian.





In The Kitchen

I finally got in from the start and have no plans on disappearing! (Granted, I didn't plan on it before either, but it just tends to happen over the holidays... but this time, I'll have a trip planned for next fall at that time, so... um... yeah).

These are a bit of at timeframe stretch as they were taken a little over a month ago. But I had this in mind... really I did.... honestly.

What is it? - I took a walk across the campus of the University of South Alabama (it was a utilitarian walk, I was walking home from work) and saw these birds. I've spent hours trying to identify them, and have come up empty. Of course, I'm most definitely not a "birder". But, I still have no clue what it is!


Lilypad


Tadpole - Granted, it's not the primary subject of the photo, it still counts though!


Something your city is known for - Mobile, AL. We're known for Azaleas (I think... we DO have a historic/natureish trail named the Azalea trail... so I'm assuming here. I'm sure that not many people know much about Mobile anyway, so I think I can sell this. Too bad it's not Mardi Gras season, as we DO have the oldest one of those in the country... yes, older than New Orleans.... not that I have any desire to head downtown for the parades though...)


So, there's 4/10. I do plan on walking home tomorrow if I'm feeling better (was sick yesterday, out sick today...) so should get some that count (except the Azaleas, they're not in season right now, and those above were stretching it for theirs, from what I understand).

Also, I'm going to be turning in some of the work late, don't flunk me! I'll be on vacation from 13 Sept - 22 Sept. It's an excused absence to visit Disn...erm.... my ailing relative. Really.

Thanks Pea-n-Me! It looks like you are off to a good start Cafeen and Princess!

Princess in Oz - Have you ever tried a Durian? The first time I saw that fruit on TV was on Chef vs Cityy and they made a drink out of it which they said was surprisingly good. I can't imagine anyone getting that far with it from the way the smell is described!

Thanks! Hey, it's my pleasure!

It's a little stressful getting started (especially when you lose a whole list! ) but it's so much fun afterward, it's worth it!

Way to get us started, guys! Princess, you just kill me with what you have in your arsenel over there!

I have a few of my own (that admittedly may have inspired some of the categories ).

Gears



Rise and Shine



Mohawk or Mullet (You know we have to have Mullet!)



Soulful - My Girl
