Item #13: A Fence, version 1
Item #13: A Fence, version 2
Welcome to the first link-up for the 2013 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt!!! Here's your opportunity to share what you've been doing on this year's hunt and to check out what everyone else has been up to. Please add a link to a specific post about the Scavenger Hunt below. Your post can be anything - a post about your favorite find; a story about your adventures while hunting; an explanation as to why you haven't gotten started yet; etc. Feel free to link to a post you've already done if that works best for you. Also, let us know if there's a way for us to see all your finds so far. Finally, please try to visit at least 3-5 other posters. I will host a similar linky at the end of each summer month (June, July, August) and at the end of the hunt on September 21. This is also a great time to ask any questions you might have (just leave it as a comment, and I'll get back to you straight away). By way of encouragement, I have a small, summery prize to send out to one random person who will be chosen on Monday evening (California time). I'll put your name in the draw once for joining the linky and once for leaving me a comment, so you can have up to two chances to win!
Today, I'm posting two photographs of item #13: a fence. I'm sharing these because they illustrate one of my favorite things about the hunt - the enormous variety of ways each item can be interpreted. Sometimes the difference comes from the photographer's interpretation of the prompt, but often times there are differences attributable to culture and geography. Police cars, theaters, coffee shops/pubs, civic buildings all look very different depending upon which country you are in, and, yes, even fences have different meanings. (Someone pointed out that, so far, there seems to be the least variation in photographs of open air markets.)
So, as you browse around the links below, enjoy the variety of images from around the world taken based on the same list of 21 items. If you want to see all my posts from this year's hunt, you can click on this link.
