Photo Scavenger Hunt 2011 – January …

Last year, I gave a really good go at project365, but I do have to admit that there were quite a few days when I would be snapping indiscriminately at anything late in the evening just to get that days’ photo taken.

This year I am slowing things down a little and going for this wonderful Photo Scavenger Hunt.  Twelve photos a month seems much more manageable and it has been fun looking for the subjects.  I also made the decision to use the Hipstamatic app on my iPhone for this series of photos as I don’t go anywhere without my phone and therefore if I saw any one of the subjects on my travels, I could photograph it immediately.  I also really like the continuity that this style of photo brings to the set.

So here are my offerings:

:: a goldfish ::

possibly not the kind of goldfish expected to be ticked off, but a cute card spotted in Paperchase!


January - a goldfish


:: a library ::

:: a reflective surface (not a mirror) ::
