of the 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 , and our winner from last round,
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.

It's out of warranty and Apple Care, and has a white screen of death. After starting in safe mode it turns itself off.
I'm able to get to system recovery. Disk first aid fails.
I do have a current Time Machine backup. I'm not sure whether it's best to restore that (which will take all day) or reinstall El Capitan (maybe only a few hours). Or it might be time to bite the bullet and upgrade the iMac.
I'm currently using my MacBook Pro with Thunderbolt monitor. I have all my current writing saved in Dropbox, but photography I'd have to get my last month's images from the SD cards and/or the iMac's Time Machine disk, and reconstruct my Lightroom catalog on the MBP, which has half the disk space onboard. (512GB SSD vs 1TB conventional disk.)
