Scavenger Hunt

The first of Hitchin Camera Club’s summer meetings was a “Scavenger Hunt” around the streets of Hitchin.   About 20 of us took part and we had two hours to find and photograph 25 items on a list, before retiring to the Cooper’s Arms in Tilehouse Street for a pint (or two!).

The intention was to shoot the images with a view to cropping them into a square format so they could be displayed as a 5 x 5 grid.  I used my Panasonic DMC-TZ70 rather than my DSLR because I could set that to shoot in square format.  This was a big help in framing the shot when I took it and also saved a lot of time cropping later!

I found a bit of creativity was needed to get some of the subjects.  Here are my efforts:
