Summer Scavenger Hunt

Over at Rinda's place there is the annual summer scavenger hunt going on.  We basically have until 21st September to photograph the following items:

1.   Open air market
2.   Theater for performing arts (not a movie theater)
3.   City Hall, Capitol or other similar civic building
4.   Airplane
5.   A sunset
6.   Someone or something taking a nap
7.   A sign that is intentionally or unintentionally funny
8.   A tower
9.   A photo with someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong
10.  A bench that is outside
11.  An animal in a zoo, aquarium, nature preserve, etc.
12.  A cloud in the shape of something (please specify what you see)
13.  A fence
14.  A stained glass object or a mosaic
15.  A fire truck or police car
16.  A windmill 
17.  Candle(s)
18.  Your local pub/bar, coffee house or tea shop
19.  A fisherman
20. A dinosaur
21.  A photograph of you with an artistic tool or craft supply (you cannot substitute for this item)
Bonus/substitute items.  If you find any of the above items too difficult, feel free to substitute either (or both) of these items.  You can substitute up to two items, but you cannot substitute Item #21:
A person wearing an outfit (or item of clothing) that symbolizes your country
A sundial

Lots of items to find and so far I have:

1. Open air market

2 and 3 theatre for performing arts and city hall - the building where my daughter graduated is Hull City Hall and they also have performances from musicians, theatre groups, comedians etc so I have got first of all the outside and then the inside.

5.  sunset - self explanatory

6. someone or something sleeping - my pooches

8. a tower - one of the power station cooling towers

9. a photo of something clearly out of place - an abandoned umbrella

11 an animal in a zoo - a spider monkey at Yorkshire Wildlife Park

12. a cloud in a shape - I think this one looks like a rodent on its hind legs 

15. a fire truck

17. a candle

Oooh, great fire truck and cloud. But my absolute favorite is the cooling tower - such a unique take on the prompt!

Great take on the tower - mine's a clock tower. There seems to be so many interpretations, it's great.

Love the monkey too, well done. They tend not to stay still long enough to get in focus - brilliant.

Happy photographing,
