Photographic Scavenger Hunt 101

This was a challenge that I saw as a flickr group back in 2010, the recommendation was that the photographs were all taken in the space of a year from the date you took your first entry. I decided long ago not to set a timescale to complete the hunt, most of the time when people try to force photography it just ends up with a lot of crap photographs taken for the sake of ticking off the list. I’ll finish this whenever I finish and enjoy using the list as a source of inspiration and a prompt when I need to kick-start some creative thinking. The group on flickr seems to have been abandoned by the admins and it’s been a long time since any new photographs were posted that have any relevance to the list so I’m posting here and linking the images in the list back to the posts on my blog.
