Photo Scavenger Hunt

Photo scavenger hunt!  The idea is to put people in pairs or teams and go around the Center City to take photos on this list.  It's best to have small groups of 3 or more.  If you can't put together a small group, we can do it here on the meetup site.  Gather your teams and...  "LET'S GET READY TO RUUMBBLLEEEEEE"...

This is an exercise to get your creative juices flowing...

Here is the list with points in parenthesis...

__ (20) Photo of the most interesting antique you can find.

__ (10) Entire team's reflection in something other than a mirror

__ (10) Entire team in or on a shopping cart

__ (20) Entire team: "I can't believe we all fit in here!" (+50 for the most creative)

__(10) Entire team with blue tongues

__(20) Entire team doing hand stands

__(10) At least one member doing exactly what the sign says (any sign can work)

__(10) A marquee with the word "new" on it

__(20) A sidewalk tragedy

__(10) Something that reminds you of a happy time

__(10) A sign of spring

__(10) Something that needs improvement

__(10) Colorful wardrobe

__(10) A blast from the past

__(10) An accident waiting to happen

__(10) A contradiction

__(10) Entire team posing like a mannequin of a store window (include mannequin in picture)

__(20) Stellar view of the city from somewhere high

__(10 for each) Entire team in front of a sign that says “Welcome to Philadelphia”

__(10) Entire team outside of City Hall

__(10) Entire team jumping (in mid air) off a flight of steps

__(10) Frolic through a garden (+10 for every team member clicking their heels)

__(5) a letter of the alphabet from natural surrounding or naturally occurring in nature, but not a man-made letter

__(10) A team member taken with someone wearing a Philadelphia sports team shirt/hat/jacket

__(10) A team member with William Penn, Betsy Ross or another historic figure

__(10) The liberty bell with a tourist in the picture

__(10) A monopoly reference (monopoly is based on Philadelphia)

__(10) A reference to "brotherly love"

      Hey Jenn, I just saw your message after I posted that maybe everyone that needs a group just meet up at the JFK plaza! LOL. Why don't we meet up there and we'll figure things out if others need a group too.

    Hi - this really peaks my creative juices - am attending with my friend Diane and anyone who wants to buddy up with us may certainly do that and feel welcomed. Diane and I recently purchased new DSLR cameras and discovered we bought the exact same camera!!! Serendipity in action. Jane
