Day Six!

Such a good album, but still no sign of the one theme I submitted for.
 
it's DAY SIX of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a photography scavenger hunt.

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 "CURVED* 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 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 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.

(ONLY ONE 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 CURVED album,
1 item seen in 300 different ways.

Shelter From the Storm

This young sparrow has been spending a lot of time on my window sill lately waiting for a meal from it's mom, resting a bit between flight lessons, or, in this photo, taking shelter from the rain. Sometimes it lets me get close to the window, sometimes it takes off.

So many people don't do this and it makes it so hard to look through their profile to figure out if they're worth following.

It really should +Marjorie McDonald, but I suppose this is their way of getting people to discover more communities.
You're welcome +Simi Shonowo! Glad I could help :)

The phone hasn't gotten me anywhere, let's see if the social media person at +Covert Chevrolet Buick GMC Bastrop​ has any power to deal with things when this goes out to my 1300 followers...

Monday
8am: I called +Covert Chevrolet Buick GMC Bastrop​ to let them know my Volt wouldn't start and the battery wasn't charging.
10am: the tow truck arrived and took my car to Bastrop.
1pm: after not hearing anything, I called to make sure they'd gotten my car and to try to arrange a loaner. They said they'd call back.
630pm: I called again to see what was up, and found out the service department closed at 6pm.

Tuesday:
8am: I called to see what was up. They said they'd call back.
11am: I called to see what was up. They said they'd call back.
1pm: I called to see what was up. They said they'd call back.
4pm: I actually spoke to a person! He told me they'd have my car until at least Thursday, and he'd arrange a loaner to be dropped off Wednesday morning.

Wednesday:
8am: I called to see what was up and left a voice mail.
830am: My account manager finally contacted me. She said she couldn't contact me because they got the car Monday night (not true unless the tow truck drove to Corpus Christi on its way from Austin to Bastrop), and then she'd been out of the office Tuesday. She also let me know it was taking a while because something something dealing with the battery to try to save me some money (it's under warranty). As she was about to hang up, I asked about the loaner I'd been promised. She said they didn't have any available but she'd see what she could do.
945am: I called and left a voice mail to see what was happening with the loaner.
1015am: I called and left a voice mail to see what was happening with the loaner.
11am: I called and... She picked up! She put me on hold to go check on the loaner, but the woman in charge of those was away on lunch (a luxury - leaving the place you're at to drive to somewhere else - that I'm beginning to miss quite a lot). She promised to call back with info.

I'm not holding my breath. This is the last time that I'll take my car to +Covert Chevrolet Buick GMC Bastrop​, and I certainly won't buy my next car there. This has been beyond ridiculous.
