Rinda's 2014 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt

Rinda is running her photography scavenger hunt again this year and I WILL be joining in! Will you? I joined in last year and had such fun finding all the items. It became quite a family affair, with Hugh and Penny helping out too. The list this year can be found on her blog here.
I am also posting her list below, for my own benefit as much as anyone elses! I shall be printing this out and laminating it to keep with me so that I know what I am looking out for. Do you think any of them will be difficult for you to find?
 Scavenger Hunt List
1. A sign welcoming people to your home town (or a nearby town)
2. A garden gnome
3. Birds on a wire
4. A group of tourists
5. A rack of post cards
6. An urban street scene
7. A rural landscape
8. A tattoo on a person
9. A bakery
10. A photo bomb (someone found lurking in the background of photo; the lurker may have intended to disrupt the picture or may be doing it unintentionally, but the background lurker is a surprise to the photographer)
11. A horn
12. A mascot
13. A sunrise
14. A parade
15. A juggler
16. A sign in a language other than English
17. A lamp post
18. A water fall
19. A public garden
20. A bus (not a car, truck, lorry, camper or RV) with a picture painted on its sides.
21. A photograph of you with something representing the season (recognizing that the season will be Winter for our friends in the southern hemisphere). Note: you may not use a substitute for this item.
If you find something on the list too difficult, you may substitute one of the following items for anything on the list, except for Item #21:
Alternative A: A kite, hot air balloon or blimp
Alternative B: A bird house.
I think the one I might find difficult is number 10, unless I set it up! However, with Ben around over the summer I think that this might happen - we will have to wait and see. The juggler might also be a bit difficult - I see some trips coming up to try and find these!
If you do join in, do link up with Rinda on her blog. I shall be posting my finds on my blog here and I have also  created a page to collect all my items together, which you will can to access at the top of my blog, as I did last year.
Good hunting!

Welcome to the HUnt! I think it's going to be a great (and big) year.

Good luck with the hunt, I always enjoy seeing peoples take on the photos

Yes, it's a great list with some challenging items! I too thought 'hum, juggler ...' and sunrises might not be so easy here either! But it will be great fun to see your photos - I enjoyed them last year too. Always interesting to see others parts of the the world through a particular lens.

I'm definitely joining in - right now I'm optimistic that I'll find them all & probably won't realize which ones will be hardest until I get started (hopefully this weekend!).

Me too I'm definitely joining, glad that I did the hop so I came across this looks like a really fun time ad a fantastic list!

Oh yeah, I'll be playing along too.

Like you, I'm thinking the juggler might be an issue. We'll have to see.
