August 2010 Photo Hunt: POSTED

Exactly one month ago, I revealed my entries for the June 2010 Photo Hunt here. This morning, the August 2010 Photo Hunt items were released. I fully plan on participating and signed up this morning. If you’d like to join me, click on the link above (or click the big button at the top) and add your blog and/or flickr photostream. To encourage participation, one item from the list will be selected for Scavenger Hunt Sunday each week. 
  1. A flag that represents you (your town, state, country, team, etc.)
  2. Something comfortable
  3. Something in season
  4. Feet
  5. Repetition
  6. Culture or ethnicity
  7. Contrast
  8. An indulgence
  9. A macro or closeup
  10. Something masculine
  11. Something feminine
  12. Light
  13. Eco-friendly
  14. Business
  15. An arrow
  16. Something wet
  17. Something dry
  18. Butterflies
  19. Heart-Shaped Clouds
  20. Strength
The Rules: 
  • Photos should be taken between August 1st and August 31st. 
  • You may use a maximum of two photos from your archives — as long as they were taken within the past year — if you find yourself stuck on the 31st without having a photo for a category or two. 
  • You ARE allowed (and encouraged!) to use Photoshop or other photo-editing software as you’d like (it often adds to the artistic quality of the photo). 
  • It is up to you whether you post your photos on your blog as you go or wait until September 1st to unveil them and make it a surprise. 
  • Put all 20 photos in one single blog post or in a single online gallery by September 4th. Please label each photo file in the following manner: Yourname-category.jpg (ex: kristi-something musical.jpg).
I hope you’ll join me in the hunt! Enjoy the rest of your weekend – I’m off to California.

    i joined you, i made a page for it that I can update as I go and when I’m done I’ll just post it as a regular post….

    Wow! I’m going to have a busy Birthday month! I can’t believe I’m taking this on. I’m doing a celebration of my Birthday month this month and now this. Turning 40 is going to rock!


    Oh I can’t believe I am doing this.. Since I am a pro over at flickr I will set up a set that will include those I am going to use. In all the clouds I just took a picture of Wednesday… nope none of them are heart shaped. According to one friend, one of the clouds looks like a whole other part of the male anatomy!

    You have proven to be quite the inspiration Ashley!

    When I get some sleep… I will do it. :) Thanks for the support and kind words on the blog and at Mortal Muses. It has been a long week.


    Ok…..I just quit my part-time job, so I’m going to be looking for something extra to do (riiiight…with 3 kids 5 & under…). But I am definitely going to take you up on this! It’ll challenge me to look for things I don’t normally photograph! Can’t wait to see what you come up with!

    Wow, this sounds like so much fun! Not sure if I can commit to completing it… I’ll see. :) Would be fun nonetheless!

    Wow, I really want to do this but am scared I couldn’t do them all. I’m going to try though! It will help that one item will be a scavenger hunt item! That was genious!

    Ok, you’ve inspired me too! I’m going to sign up. Hope you enjoy yourself in CA!

    I fully intend on doing this!

    I’m totally going to do this…just signed up! I have no idea where I’m going to find a flag, but I loooooove photographing feet, especially pudgy little baby toes!

    and, have a safe trip!

    I’m anxious to see what you come up with! What a fun little challenge!

    sounds like fun….I might try it!!!

    Thanks for letting us all know, will sign up right now! Have a safe trip.

    Okay, I have never done anything this intense with photography before. I have only been taking photos this year,this should be a fun month…..I hope..

    Wow,good idea!It would be fun.
    Now I’m following you:D

    I’m signing up for the first time this month – looking forward to the challenge

    I’m so excited to see everyone’s entries – I’m definitely going to attempt to do it! Have a great time in CA (my home state!).

    I totally am going to try and do this. Little intimidated by all the catagories, but it should be fun! Plus it will get me shooting more. :)

    i seriously am thinking of doing this! it will encourage me to step up and take more pictures that just of my little people :).. thanks for sharing the link!!

    Ah! I’m supposed to be August breaking – I don’t know if I can pass this up though . . . I love a good hunt!!! Thanks for passing this on! You always find such fun things!
