@#$%&, what the heck was I thinking going ahead with Mountain Lion set up!!! No glitches anymore they said, easy as pie they said!!! Gah!!! Multiple files of copies that I have no idea what's the copy and what..
   Well, I have a legitimate excuse as to why no photos will accompany this delightfully venting. None of my LR files were left inside of LR.. unless it's buried in a copy of it under the others layers.. It's an Ogre=Onion kinda deal ;-)

That's right - It's time to ANNOUNCE the next SIGN UP DATE

If you have been following the hunt over the last ten days,
watching the reveals take place from the current round
I'm sure you've seen just how much fun
the people who take part in them have.

The community of scavengers you enter alongside  
are people unlike anywhere else around.

We have our own community page where you will be able to interact with judges,
there are behind the scenes information on just how some of these outstanding pictures were created,
you will learn,
you will create friendships,
you will stretch your creative muscles.

The Scavenger Hunt is OPEN TO ANYONE 
who shares a passion for photography.
We have photographers of every level participating.
There is not a single reason to hesitate to join up!

So if this sounds like something you would like to be a part of,
Then visit my profile page here (+Chrysta Rae) on
FRIDAY, MARCH 21 at 12 NOON (mountain time zone)
and when you see the sign up post come up, 
simply say "I'm in" and the first 500 people will be entered.

(spots in the past have gone within 3 hours of the post - make sure you have your alarm set so you don't miss out!)

I cannot WAIT to play with you!!

Today is DAY FIVE of REVEALS from the 2014 NEW YEAR, NEW HUNT round of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What is the photography scavenger hunt?
Only the most fun you can have with your camera!!

I host this event every season 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 around 2 months to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers
(this round's judges were +Alan Shapiro +Mike Shaw +Thomas Hawk +Mark Rodriguez and +Derek Kind   

I then open the albums up to the public - which is this stage.
Later today I will be posting the winners from this album.
There are 10 categories: Today is the "*CARELESS*" album, see previous posts for the "STEAM", "EMBRACE", "HUNGOVER" and "HEALTHY" 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. 

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 "CARELESS" album,
1 item seen in 159 different ways.
