Photo Scavenger Hunt & List of Photography Themes

A couple of years ago, when some friends and I were running an online photography forum, we decided to set a scavenger hunt challenge.

I’m not sure anyone except me tried it, but I had a go whilst walking around my local town.  I actually found it really enjoyable and would recommend it as a fun activity for yourself or your children.

You are welcome to use my checklist for your own photo scavenger hunt or you could pick some themes from the list below. You could also use these for a daily or weekly photo project.
