The Final Four ~ Scavenger Hunt Photos

Even though I'm super glad that summer is coming to an end {buh-bye heat!}, I am a little sad that Rinda's Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt is almost over too. Today I'm sharing the final four items I haven't blogged yet, and then this Saturday - at the official end of the scavenger hunt - I plan to do a full recap/summary of all 21 items.

Item #3 - City Hall, Capitol, or other similar civic building
My city's City Hall building, built just a few years ago so it's all modern and shiny and new. {For the record, I prefer old and historic - but I suppose this will be someday...}

#8 - A tower
No super cool castle towers or cathedrals on my piece of the planet, but we do have these palm-tree-shaped cell phone towers in our parts. This one is on the back side of a strip mall. It really blends in, don't you think?

#10 - A bench that is outside
A handsome hubby on the bench wasn't part of the prompt, but I added him anyway.

#11 - An animal in a zoo, aquarium, nature preserve, etc.
This is one that I hadn't expected to capture. It's too hot during the summer for me to venture over to our local zoo, so I figured I'd have to search for one of the alternate items to fill this prompt. But then I went to Bass Pro Shop with Doug so he could get a few camping supplies and there, in the middle of the store, was this huge aquarium filled with bass fish. The lighting is poor, and there's a glare on the glass, but it was pretty cool to have these three fish lined up and posing for my photo. {Thanks, guys!}

And that's it! I'm so happy that I found all 21 items this year! Last year I fell short by a couple, but life had other junk planned for me and I was a bit distracted. Rinda's Photography Scavenger Hunt ends on September 21st, and I'll be participating in one final link-up with her on that day.

I'm already kind of looking forward to next summer
just to see what's on the new scavenger hunt list!

Glad that you managed to 'catch' the fish! Well done you for getting them all. I've managed to get them all too and am looking forward to next year! It will be nice on Saturday to go around all the blogs looking at everyone's round ups of the Summer Scavenger Hunt.

Well done on finishing up! I love the angle of that civic building shot and the way it captures all the words.

Great finds. That cell phone tower is quite different! Congratulations on completing the list. I'm off to find my last two today. I'll have to remember to link up on Saturday, thanks for that information.

So interesting to see your cell phone tower! My favourite is the top one - you have captured the angle and the shadows so very artistically.

Congrats! These are all so Arizona, and I love the perspective in the civic building photograph.
See you this weekend for the final check in and link up,

How fun! It's great you finished the whole hunt. If you send out a reminder, I think I'd like to play next year!!!! Love the shot of Doug on the bench!

Ruth said...

Well done on completing the list! The light in Arizona certainly helps when taking photos, doesn't it? Love that shot of Doug and I like your "palm" purely because it's so different to what we see here!

Abi said...

Well done on that list! I think I will fall a few short. That palm tree made me laugh. I have never seen anything like that!

Well it may not be a castle tower, but it looks pretty darn cool to me :o)
