And here is day 9, the bird album!
 
DAY NINE of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt! Sponsored by Adobe!

What is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, 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

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days.
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "*BIRD*" album.

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 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 month.

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 "*BIRD*" album,
1 item seen in 310 different ways.

Find the open window, follow the road less traveled, do things that take your breath away and make your heart sing, and always, always dance. Be exactly who you were meant to be. And if you're me, that includes using the Oxford Comma. :)
Introduction

My world is divided into moments of time. In each of those individual moments I see details that make up relationships, that imply, that insinuate, and that connect disparate elements. These moments, when gathered and distilled, can tell exquisite stories. My goal as a photographer is to reveal the stories that people pass by, unsuspecting. Through photography, I collect these moments and present them as a way to communicate what I see, a way to tell the stories that I see beneath the surface of everyday life.
