I almost did miss it - the final post for Rinda's Summertime Photo Scavenger Hunt! Hard to believe, especially since I only had four pictures left for it. So let's go ahead, shall we?
#9 A photo with someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong
That would be trash in nature for me. It simply doesn't belong, and it makes me angry whenever I see it. When I walk around my lake, I always find trash even though there are so many trash bins that everybody can easily deposit of any trash there. I have started to document the trash with my camera, and I have the feeling there is a future post in the making.
#15 A fire truck or police car
When I first read that I thought "that is easy". You know what? It was the last thing I took a picture of. Whenever I saw a police car I either didn't have a camera with me or it wasn't appropriate. So in the end I had to rely on Kaefer and her toy cars that luckily she still keeps. All the German police car you can see in this picture - and please note that there is also a horse trailer as well as a helicopter - are made by SIKU which is the biggest toy car manufacturer in Germany and is based in my hometown. I practically grew up with these toys (I had some myself) and for many of us working at SIKU was one of the first summer jobs we got. These are truly high quality toy cars and as good as undestroyable.
A visit to IKEA was all I needed for this photo.
#21 A photograph of you with an artistic tool or craft supply
Well, that had to be my camera!
With these four photos, I have found all 21 items - I wouldn't have thought that I ended up with that! It was fun to participate and find the items in the most unexpected places, like the dinosaur on Vancouver Island. Thank you, Rinda, for organizing this and I look forward to next year's summer scavenger hunt!
