March 2013 Scavenger Hunt: Las Vegas, U.S.A.

A scavenger hunt had me scouring Las Vegas, U.S.A. for photos!

A Famous Sign for a Fabulous City

At the end of last month
I was viewing one of my favorite blogs,
Ivan's A Normandy Kitchen,
and I discovered his entry 
in a photography scavenger hunt.


It looked like a fun thing to do, 
so I explored a brand new and inviting blog,
Jill's Made with Love,
and I learned how easy it is to participate.
Just capture a list of 12 specific images for the month 
and post them at the end of the month.


So here we go with my results!

    Hugs Lynn xxx

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog, too, Lynn, and for your kind words about my photos. We are enjoying an easy going Easter! Hope yours is great as well!

  7. Thanks for taking part in this months Scavenger Hunt, you have a really great collections of photos. I really like green, shoes,a person in uniform well all of them I think. Greenthumb.

    1. Thanks for your kind comment, GT! It was fun, and I am looking for April's list! Have a happy Easter tomorrow!

  8. Great photos! Now, I must ask you, have you ever been to Lake Tahoe? That is one of the most beautiful spots in the country for me. Of course, I have not seen that much of it!!
    Happy Easter to you, my friend! xx

    1. Thank you, Kay! No, I have never had the good fortune to visit Lake Tahoe. I know it is spectacular. One of these days, maybe. I'm so grateful to have seen so many places in this beautiful world! I'll be thinking of you climbing your monadnock tomorrow! Happy Easter!

  9. This was so much fun and gives everyone who hasn't partaken in the "sins" of SinCity a chance to sin or at least enjoy looking at these scavenger photos. Good choices, Louise!


    1. I'm glad that you enjoyed the pictures, Ron. It was fun to participate in the scavenger hunt. Next time I try to do it out of town, I'll have to remember to take my list with me! I had to hunt through all my photos to find the appropriate things. I do love visiting Sin City! My biggest "sin" last time was finally seeing the Donny and Marie show which was wonderful. Marie blew me away with her spectacular talent, and Donny was awesome! Have a good evening!

    2. Yes it did, Sophie!
      Marie looks amazing ~ and after all that weight she lost, she gives me hope ~ call me "Eternally Optimistic!"
      Today I started "surfing" on the bottom of a bosu ball ~ getting ready to tackle that paddle board in Hawaii! Aloha!

  10. O my gosh, this is brilliant! Excellent, witty choices, my friend! I'm especially taken with "green" and "bridge" :)

  11. Fabulous! Love the greens, and the uniforms, lol.
    I haven't been to Vegas in decades - it looks like fun.

  12. Hello Louise,
    What a great set of photos they really capture your trip, wonderful finds also! (It really is fun to do). The 'uniform' was clever and so Vegas, made me laugh. Thank you for the shout-out, very kind words.
    Wishing you both a Happy Easter!

  13. Really love the photos of the bright lights of Vegas! Particularly like the fountain outside of Caesars! Brought back memories of my fun times there!

  15. Beautiful photos! I love this idea. I may just participate for the upcoming ones. I have so many photos on my computer that I'm probably all set. But maybe I should go out and get news ones, anyway. A good excuse to get outside and enjoy nature - and photography! Have a lovely Sunday!

  16. Great photos! I love green and a bridge.

  17. Oh I love this! My eyes are all ablaze with the sights. My friend and I are planning a vegas trip, you are getting me pumped for it:)

  18. This does look like a great 'hunt' in which to participate Louise! You have done a great job! And a good look at Vegas too. I'd love to see Donny and Marie in concert!

  19. Wow, what great photos, that is somewhere I would like to visit, makes me dizzy just looking at the photos! Deep fried winkies?

  20. Las Vegas is amazing..;)

  28. What a great selection of photos, number 3 made me smile.

  29. How fun and inventive! Las Vegas is perfect for some off-beat images!

  30. It seems that the scavenger hunt kept you busy in Las Vegas. I know how it feels when you're currently into the challenge. It's quite addicting because you're always trying to find those items on the list. “I need to find this...” – I bet you have said this a thousand times before. Haha! Your mindset is to accomplish it, so you really give your 100% to finish the task.
