Photograph Scavenger Hunt

Many of the bloggers I follow like to participate in Rinda's photo scavenger hunts.  I always enjoy seeing how everyone captures the different prompts, so I thought I would join in with the summer hunt.

We had a special summer trip planned to Europe. We were taking my mother back to her home town for a visit.  It's been close to 20 years since she has been to Germany to see her friends and family. She turned 78 this year and we thought it would be a good item for her to visit one more time.

This photo is not on the hunt but was a favorite from my trip. This is my Mom, her brother and sister-in-law and me and my family.

I asked my boys to help me with the hunt when we went to Europe for our summer vacation. We had a good time getting many of these photos and I have to admit being on vacation helped capture these items.

Item #3 Person walking an animal. We had several photos of people walking their dogs.

Item #2 Ornate door knocker. Not sure about the knocker but this door was so ornate that I figured that was close enough.

Item #22 People eating Outside. Since we were in Europe during a major heat wave this was very easy to find. No one wanted to be inside since there was no air conditioning in the hotel.

Item #7 Turtle. One of the many toy shops we visited and found this wonderful turtle.

Item #8 Someone "plugged in" to social media.  This is one of my favorite photos from our trip. We were taking a walking tour of Rothenburg ab der Taub and these guy was so plugged in he didn't notice when our tour guide stood on the bench and a crowd of 100+ people stood in front of him. When he finally realized, he just smiled and went back to his devices.

Item #15 Flag pole with a least three flags.  This was the closes we could get to this item.

Item #11 Satellite Dish. As we walked along the mid evil town wall we noticed these satellite dishes. Love the old and the new living together.

Item #5 Architectural columns.  Just gorgeous, what else can I say about this building in Munich.

Item #1 Bouquet of flowers.  I gave my Aunt the bouquet of flowers on the table. The last time I saw my Aunt was almost 16 years ago and I saw my Uncle when I was a teenager. It was so special to see them again.

Item #17 At least two people wearing matching outfits. One of my boys noticed these gentlemen and captured the photo for me.

Item #10 College or University.  We happen to notice the beautiful painting as we were walking and noticed that this was the side of the University in Munich.

Item #20 A Natural Body of Water. Very cold but refreshing after a long hike.

Item #16 Panoramic view, taken high. Again, this was an easy photo to capture in Europe. Up in the Alps looking down - Just amazing.

Item #23. Someone holding an umbrella. With temperatures over 100 I wasn't surprised to see this umbrella.

Item #12 Public Restroom. We saw some interesting restroom, I just felt weird taking a photo. But I did snap this one of the girls door.

Item #6 Metal Bridge.

Item # 13 Merry go Round.

17 Items out of 21 in one trip.  Not bad for our first time and we still have a few weeks before the end of summer.
