Feeding On Decaying Matter…

This week (ahem – last week) we took part in a Photo Scavenger hunt.  It turned out not to be quite what people expected (more of a treasure hunt) but was fun anyway.  We split up into three teams, each armed with a digital camera of some description and an instruction sheet which featured some common sense safety advice and a list of 20 items. Each group had to a photograph which represented each item in the list whilst paying attention to the important information tt the bottom of the sheet.  The list was:

  1. Relaxing Place
  2. The letter ‘Z’
  3. Human Pyramid (min. Six people)
  4. Yellow Car
  5. “I can’t believe we all fit in here”
  6. Uniform
  7. Team Reflection
  8. Unusual Perspective
  9. Leap Frog
  10. Abstract Architecture
  11. Yummy
  12. Bubbles
  13. Second Hand
  14. Gum
  15. Tattoo
  16. Interesting Number Plate
  17. Blue Food
  18. Questionable Sign
  19. Scar
  20. Lego
  21. <your choice>

Points were awarded for satisfactory interpretations of the requirements – and teams were given the chance to explain or argue their interpretation – but bonus points were awarded for creative interpretations of the requirements.  Extra bonus points available for photo 21 (and for using the form correctly).

Unfortunately no-one has sent their photos through to me so I can’t include them here (the pics above are stolen from Alex’s photo album – if you’re on Facebook, you should be able to see it here; if you’re not on Facebook yet, why not?).

The title of the weekly updates isn’t usually explained, but is normally instantly understandable by those who attended; this week it is based loosely on the photos the teams submitted for photo 11 – “yummy”, and on the dictionary definition of Scavenger:

scav·en·ger (skăvən-jər) pronunciation

  1. One that scavenges, as a person who searches through refuse for food.
  2. An animal, such as a bird or insect, that feeds on dead or decaying matter.

Congratulations: to Alex who has passed her Driving Test since we met last week!  Yay!

Next Week (ahem, this week): weather permitting (looks ok at the time of writing), we’ll be heading to the park to play frisbee (ultimate if we have enough people) and other exciting open-space games.
