Still some spots left for those who like a nice little challenge
 
THIS IS THE OFFICIAL 2015 "17" ROUND SIGN UP
for the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!

Don't know what that is?
It's an amazing game that has turned into so much more.
If you love photography, and you have a camera,
COME JOIN US!!

Simply type "I'M IN" in the comments below and the first 500 people to sign up will be entered.

After sign ups I will be giving you an item list -
10 simple things to take pictures of.
It's up to you to make your picture stand out!!
It's so much fun!!
I give you a few weeks to get the shots done.

You do NOT need to be a professional shooter. 
You do NOT need a fancy camera.
You do NOT need to feel any hesitation on your skill level,
as this group of Scavengers is one of the most supportive groups of people around.
This is just FOR FUN.
It's me getting you to use your camera in ways you might not do otherwise,
It's to push yourself to try new things,
learn new techniques,
join a group of like-minded people who will encourage you
and teach you sooo much!
Basically I'm giving you a fun excuse to take pictures you wouldn't have otherwise - for example, once I got to pour yellow paint over my boyfriend's head!! 

During the course of the month, you will make friends,
You will have support and be encouraged and be a part of the best community on G+.
You WILL be welcomed and surrounded by wonderful people
who WANT you to watch you succeed and surprise yourself!!

SO, if that sounds like something you'd like to be a part of...
All you have to do is type two simple little words, "*I'M IN*"
And you will be registered.

IF YOU ARE SIGNING UP SOMEONE AS A PROXY (if someone has asked you to sign them up) do so on different comments.
And I NEED there to be a G+ account linked to that name.

I will only enter ONE PERSON per comment, if there are more than one on a single comment, only the first person will be entered. 
(This is the only way I can keep track of the 500 spots.)

PLEASE DO NOT comment on this post unless it is to sign up.
Any stray comments will be deleted.

PLEASE DO NOT sign up unless you actually want to participate,
not just because you see everyone else doing it.

I can't wait to play with you!!!!

And with that - (like any of you even read this) - let the registration BEGIN!! bounces around room

The example below was from our "colourful" album.

IT'S THE FINAL DAY OF OUR 2015 - SWEET 16 ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!! 
____________________________________________________________
SIGN UPS FOR THE 17th ROUND OF THE SCAVENGER HUNT 
WILL BE HELD AT 12 NOON (Mountain time zone)
ON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13TH
____________________________________________________________

What is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, to push your limits, to experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year
for anyone of any level of photography to participate.

I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers - this round by   +Robin Griggs Wood, +Sandra Parlow  and our winner from last round, +Mark Rodriguez   

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 

There are 10 categories:
This is the TENTH - the "STRIPES" album. Please see previous days for the "Violet", "Electric", "Brick", "Fish", "Bunny", "Angry", "Urban Legend", "Juicy" and "plumber" albums.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement, friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the round. 

This is a negative-free zone -
I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 

Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(NONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the "*STRIPES*" album,
1 item seen in 273 different ways.
