Some very good interpretations for this month.

Don, that dreamscape gave me goosebumps. :eek:

Extremely jealous over the trip to Glacier.

I didn't take many photos at all this month, things just didn't work out. Maybe September ?

just kidding. here we go:


High Noon (everyone likes the blue hour or the gold hour, this is the crappy high-contrast middle of the day +/- 1.5 hours so from 1030 to 130)

50mm (image must be created at 50mm with either a prime or a zoom set to 50mm. my first camera kit came with the 50mm f1.8)

Low Angle (camera should be no higher than waist high from the ground when creating the image. i was going to say 1 foot from the ground but i might not be able to get back up my ownself!)

window (any thing window or window frame related)

Amish culture (not necessarily THE Amish, but something with zero "modern technology")

Great list!
However, I'd be remiss if I didn't point out this bit from the very first page in the thread (which was quoted from the very first post in the very first Scavenger Hunt thread I started ....)

The idea behind this is to get out and shoot more – and to look for subjects where perhaps you ordinarily wouldn’t. I’m going to list five topics/subjects and over the course of the month I’ll take photographs representing each one – or at least representing my interpretation of each one. Basically, anything goes. If one of the subjects is “red” and for whatever reason that inspires me to take a photo of something yellow, I’m okay with that – just so it gets me to look for photos in places I might not ordinarily look for photos.

Basically, the topics are great. But if we all try to follow your interpretation of the topics or your intentions with the topics, it kind of defeats a major purpose of the thread. The idea is to interpret the topics ourselves. A lot of the fun is seeing what each photographer chooses to do with something like "High Noon". If you want to take yours between 10:30 and 1:30, go for it. But if someone else wants to do a cowboy theme reminiscent of the movie, or or a really cool clock, or of someone who looks particularly high or is really high up in a tree or on a roof or whatever it inspires them to shoot.. it's all good. So yeah, officially the list will be "High Noon - 50mm - Low Angle - window - Amish culture" and each participant is not only allowed but encouraged to interpret those any way they'd like - whatever works to get them out shooting something they ordinarily might not. If they want to follow your interpretations/intent​ions that's fine too, but not at all required.

fair enough, but as you say to go shoot something you wouldnt normally do, MOST people dont deliberately go and shoot when the lighting is ample but (generally) terrible, a lot of folk will look for interesting angles and such but how many deliberately go and shoot something low angle? i wanted to put ground level but was afraid i might not get back up from the ground so wanted to make it a bit more convenient for others as well...

the 50mm, it doesnt seem like many shooters constrict themselves to what could be limited focal length. theyll pull their wide angle zoom back just a little to squeeze in a little more of the frame and be at 35-45mm. or zoom out just a touch and shoot at 60mm. i thought i could challenge some shooters to "deal with the limitations of their gear" kind of how i did when i got my first gear...

the amish, might not be very accessible to everyone. we have some amish in the relatively close by areas but how many amish are in florida or arizona or idaho? low-tech can be found there. maybe that should have been the topic..

i can alter the post to remove the restrictions if you like. its your game, im just trying to play it. ive only ever gotten all 5 topics since i started trying this a couple of years ago...

UPDATE!!!!


the September list has been edited to better reflect the rules of the game...


there are no restrictions on the subjects to be shot...


Amish culture has been changed to reflect what i was originally looking for as "Low Technology"
