A Scavenger Hunt for 26

Today was the last day for getting images for the 26 Things International Photographic Scavenger Hunt. The goal is to make 26 photos from each of these categories. I have actually managed to do so, mostly because of all the pictures I took in Brazil.

My photos are more of a 'funny snapshot' quality and are no where near the artistic quality of Lisa, Dave, Jason or JM.

Visits the full page for the my images and be sure to chek out the other submissions (mine was submission #111).

"Artistry?!" Thanks so much! I especially liked your "Sunset," "Transport," "Numbers" and "Communication."

I found out about this at the last minute, but sure had fun with it. Thanks for visiting my gallery.

I think those are excellent! I like the light, footwear and rollercoaster ones best. Hate rollercoasters though. ;-)

O! Nice job on em all! I like authority and communication that best. What a odd shape for a pay phone...
