      It is for me. Although I basically know what I am going to do, I need to go into NYC to finish setting it up. Unfortunately I was in an auto accident. While I was stopped on an acceleration ramp to I-78, a man in a sports car was looking to the side at the oncoming traffic. Failing to see me he accelerated rear-ending my Prius at approximately 65mph. I am still recovering from that. In the next six month I will have at least two abdominal surgeries. Vertebral and pelvic fractures have made standing in one spot painful. This is why I have not been leading my NYC Photo Walks. Such is life. Take care, RJ

    The Game is Afoot! The first three scavenger hunt lists are ready. I am working on logistics, and prizes. May be doing each of them in three sessions: morning, afternoon, and evening/night. They are different from most scavenger hunts, in that they will require you to use imagination and creativity. You will need to do your own interpretation of what you are asked to find. The first one has 8. They all will include a photo of your group. It is possible to have them done on more than one day. I am open to suggestions, i.e., Sunday, Saturday, and a weekday.

      I am thinking of asking for a minimum donation of $20. If after doing one of these scavenger hunts, you think it was worth more to you, then you may donate more; anonymously or not..

      June 12

    • RJ

      Would you prefer to do this in groups of 5 or individually?

      June 12

  • Joie

    May attend, depending on date and time... Weekends are best for me...

    I always liked scavenger hunts as a child, so mixing photography with this should be great.

    Yes it sounds like fun. But how do you work photography into a scavenger hunt?

    May 3

  • Loraine P.

    Looking forward to it. I'll check back for the date.

    December 2, 2015

    • RJ

      Hope to do it as soon as possible. At the moment I am fighting in court to save my house, or we would have already had it.

      December 2, 2015

    • BGD

      Sorry to hear about that RJ :( Good luck!!!

    To accommodate as many members as possible, I am planning to do this on a Sunday afternoon. It will be rain or shine event. If enough members request it via a comment to this comment, I might also do one on a Saturday. and/or a weekday.

  • RJ

    Once again I am in the process of working on a scavenger hunt. A year or so ago I had tried to do it at Pier 17, and only one person showed up. To make it faster to complete there will be teams. This way you will be able to split up the list. There will be many prizes, with the winning team members having first selection of them.

    1 · May 17, 2015

    • RJ

      The scavenger hunt will cost $5 to $10 per person. As long as they meet the required criteria, the photos may be of anything living, nonliving, and/or man made; except for any attempt to actually create or manipulate an image. I am planning on using walkie talkies to allow team captains to ask questions and to keep in touch with me. it will begin an end in an easy to access location such as Union Square.

      May 17, 2015

    • RJ

      Also every member who attends will be included in the end of June drawing for one year of Creative Cloud (except for anyone previously having won it). The drawing for the year of Creative Cloud is in no way related to the Scavenger Hunt, and my charging attendees to go on it.

    I would like to join, but it really depends on the date. The idea sounds like a lot of fun.

  • RJ

    I would like to do this. However, there would be a $5 per person charge. That is to make up for the 90% who R.S.V.P. Yes and then never show up.

    Hi! I'm in! This is a great idea - I've been looking for inspiration to practice with my new camera! When was this idea posted? When/where will it take place? Will it be a solo and post event, or a group gathering kind of thing? I know... so many questions....!

    1 · February 26, 2013

    • RJ

      I am working on an actual event. During it small groups will compete with each other. As with my Photo Walks in general, I want to do a walk through of the area I want to use.

    Hi Patricia, this is a good idea. I actually have several photo scavenger hunts ready to go. I created them for a raining night at Pier 17 and only one member showed up. I will be posting them in the future.
