Woo Hoo! Reveals have started - here's album number one - "Lather"
What you are about to see over the course of the next 10 days
will inspire you,
It will excite you,
It will delight you,
And it will introduce you to some outstanding photographers.

Today is DAY ONE of REVEALS from the
2014 SPRING FLING round
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!
Sponsored by +MeFOTO and +Induro 

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

I host this event 4 times a year and invite 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 +Colby Brown +Gordon Laing +Barry Blanchard +Brian Hynes, and our winner from last round, +Stefan Riss)

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: We are starting with the "*LATHER*" 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. 

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 "LATHER" album,
1 item seen in 202 different ways.
