Photo Scavenger Hunt #22 – Interjection – Wow! / Conclusion

Hunter’s notes: Wildfire at Silver Dollar City in Branson.  That’s me looking at the camera miming “wow”.  Thanks Anne for the shot!

Photo Scavenger Hunt Conclusion:  Overall, I think this went pretty well.  In the end I only missed four out of 23 of the words generated for the scavenger hunt, putting me at 82.6% completion.  I did not come up with an entry for Predicted, Sufficient, Rosewood, and Gristliest.  I should have gotten sufficient and gristliest.  Rosewood and Predicted are obviously a bit tough.

Overall, I think the photos, in terms of interestingness, composition, and colors were pretty average for my abilities, skill set, and available technology.  A few of them (like the rejected entries for coin and the submissions for connubial and perverseness) really stood out for me and I really like; a few others (like stakeout and flesh) I absolutely hate and would not ever have posted outside of this project.  Overall, if I had to judge my own photography in relation to all the other photographs I’ve posted, I’d put these smack dab at average.  I’ll call it an even 70%.

Final self-evaluated grade for this project: 76.3%

Photo Scavenger Hunt #21 and #23 – Interjections – Glory! and Faith!

Hunter’s notes: these two were pretty similar and both kind of required a religious bent.  Here are the submissions I came up with for these words.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #20 – Common Verb – Observed

Hunter’s notes: Underneath a sign reading “Do Not Look In This Hole” at Silver Dollar City in Branson, MO.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #18 – Common Verb – Skipped

Hunter’s note: this kid “skipped” the ride (The Great American Plunge at Silver Dollar City) and was watching his family on the ride.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #17 – Somewhat Uncommon Verb – Vivify

Hunter’s note: I was trying to make the green spread out from the mushroom as though the mushroom was vivifying the grass around it.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #16 – Somewhat Uncommon Adjective – Incredulous

Hunter’s note:  Anne assures me that this little creature looks “incredulous”.  Thanks to A.B. for the creature!

Photo Scavenger Hunt #15 – Somewhat Uncommon Adjective – Connubial

Hunter’s notes: Connubial – (adj) pertaining to marriage.  Thanks to Anne for the idea!  This was a tough photo to execute.  The camera’s propped in the shower soap dish and Anne and I are wedged against the wall.  Totally worked for the shot, except my creepy stare kind of ruins it.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #12 – Somewhat Uncommon Noun – Stakeout

Hunter’s notes: probably the entry least relevant to the word generated.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #11 – Somewhat Uncommon Noun – Perverseness

Hunter’s notes: This one was one of my favorites to make.  1) That’s a wadded up piece of toilet paper, not a wadded up doily. 2) that is supposed to be a bottle of lotion behind the toilet paper. 3) That is the 2010 calendar of “Great [sic] American Conservative Women”.  I can think of nothing more perverse.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #9 – Common Adjective – Grim

Hunter’s notes: The above was the most “grim” of the two photos I took to represent Grim.  The runner-up is below.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #7 – Common Adjective – Prevalent

Hunter’s notes: There are three churches in one city block near my house.  I was trying to illustrate how “prevalent’ churches are in the south, but I’m not sure if that really gets conveyed here.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #6 – Common Adjective – Surplus

Hunter’s notes: “Surplus” in the sense that this is leftover coinage from the various countries we’ve visited that were too small to exchange back into dollars.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #5 – Common Noun – Compound

Hunter’s notes: Baptist churches are very compound-like.  Also the architecture of this church was pretty compound-y.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #4 – Common Noun – Flesh

Hunter’s notes: This one’s a bit disappointing.  I was hoping to actually grill some meat and get a good picture of a steak on a grill.  Unfortunately, the week of my imposed scavenger hunt was the first week all summer that we didn’t grill anything.  I’m going to give this one an overall D-.  An F for photo quality/interestingness and a D for relevance to the word “flesh” (and for not resorting to a sultry photo of human skin).  I’ll also note that the lighting inside my refrigerator is impeccable.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #3 – Common Noun – Scene

Hunter’s notes: from somewhere in Silver Dollar City.  I’m still not happy with how well this fits the concept of “scene”, but it was the closest I got.  I’m considering this entry a failure.   Here are a couple more (also from Branson) that I rejected for not quite fitting the “scene” category.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #2 – Common Noun – Smile

Hunter’s notes:  Gross.  1) Yes, my pores are that large. 2) No, my teeth aren’t that disgusting.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #1 – Common Noun – Coin

Hunter’s notes:  this was one of the straightforward “common nouns” that was generated.  I feel like the shot (above) is a little bit blatant, so I also submit these ‘rejects’ that I felt too subtly represented “coin” to make the cut.
