After the success of the original Scavenger Hunt thread, we've decided to go ahead and do it again for 2016 -- please join us!

Below, I'll quote the first post from the original thread to give newcomers an idea of what we're doing here. The short version is this: each month we pick five topics, and then spend the month trying to photograph those topics.

I'll update this post each month with the new topics. I'm selecting the topics for January and will be posting them here soon, most likely on the 31st. After that, I'll ask for volunteers or I'll message active Hunters to ask them to take a month. If anyone volunteers and then for some reason can't or for whatever reason doesn't make their picks, I'll just go ahead and pick them myself.

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. In the past, I've found that if a word such as "red" is on the list I'll find myself looking at all things red all month long -- and that's kind of the point. I’m not sure it’s really a “competition”, other than with yourself, but I wasn’t sure where else to post this.

At the end of the month I’ll post five photos. It'll probably be one of each word, but not necessarily. I hope you’ll join me, and share your results at the end of the month. And if you do join me and share your work, perhaps you might want to volunteer to pick five words/topics for an upcoming month.

One approach I've used in the past is to take a photo of everything on the list as early in the month as I can, and then the rest of the month I'll be looking for opportunities to improve on what I already have. So I might take a crappyish snapshot of some stairs today, and then next week try to find prettier or more interesting stairs or try to get them in more interesting light, or find a whole 'nother interpretation of "stairs" altogether where I'm shooting something in nature that reminds me of stairs. Anyway, if you decide to go along you may be surprised at how much time you spend looking for something that fits your idea of "almost pretty" and how much fun you have deciding on how best to photograph it. I hope so!

I'm going to use this post as a list of each month's topic-pickers.

If anyone who was a topic-picker any month last year would be willing to volunteer to take a month this year, let me know and I'll add you to the list. After that, I'll open it up to anyone else who was active in last year's thread, and then to newcomers to this year's thread.

JANUARY: MichiTimm
FEBRUARY: OldCrow
MARCH: CameraMan
APRIL: EastBayGirl
MAY: Benitoite
JUNE: philk54
JULY: OhioHick
AUGUST: MichiTimm
SEPTEMBER: OldCrow
OCTOBER: philk54
NOVEMBER: LtDave
DECEMBER EastBayGirl

I'll go for March. Maybe that will help me get to some shooting.

Shampoo sounds like an unfortunate name for a hair product.
You're a ghost driving a meat-coated skeleton made from stardust, riding a rock, hurtling through space. Fear Nothing!

Here's one just for fun that I took a month or so ago that sort of covers all five items for the January hunt... My little furry buddy has very soft hair, with a stripe right down between her eyes, and she likes to climb up on my shoulder and groom me, a sight that would cause some to think "huh?"
