That's a monster of a list! I'm in :)
posted December 16th, 2010
Oh yeah forgot to say you dont have to do the whole list. But I figured what a challenge!
posted December 16th, 2010
WHOA! Now THAT'S a LIST. =))
posted December 16th, 2010
Yep, I'm in! I'll incorporate this into everything else that I am doing. One can never have too many sources for ideas. :-)

I set up my flickr set with the first thing.
posted December 16th, 2010
I'm going to make an attempt at it. :) I will put the pictures in a separate 365 album and tag them scavhunt.
posted December 16th, 2010
So what do we have to do tomorrow!!!!! Haha.
posted December 16th, 2010
I guess we don't have to snap in order of how they're listed??? I'm in, and just started my free flicker page- is there a prize for getting everything as fast as possible and are you allowed to use previous shots from the past that one has posted on 365?
posted December 16th, 2010
Well gosh, it certainly gives me some ideas! I don't have a pro flickr account though so I can't upload very many photos there because then they delete my older photos.

Sounds fun!
posted December 17th, 2010
What a list, I agree. I do which they give you assignment everyday and 365, so what's one more project, lol Alot of things listed that are a challenge for me for sure, sounds like alot of fun.
@ Karen if you will copy your pics and resize them in a program you can add all you want on Flicker. I had that problem with doing my dailyshoot, but now I resize them and load all I want. Hope this will help and Katie, I'm in :-)

No prize just fun! And you can use any shots!

To all it does not have to be a flickr account I am actually looking into doing a photo bucket album instead as I dont like flickr.

Here is the link to my photo bucket account:

This sounds like fun, expecially since I am just starting out, this will give me something to try..will post under album Scavenger Hunt. Mine will be on here and my facebook page as I do not use the flicker site or photo bucket. Thanks and looking forward to starting this.
posted January 2nd, 2011
This is a fantastic idea! I'm definitely doing this list!
posted January 2nd, 2011

You dont have to have a flickr account. You can use like photobucket or another site as long as you can post a link.

posted January 24th, 2011
Sounds like a good idea, I may have to try this out on a photobucket account or something. You didn't give a time limit so it'd give something to do while on vacations and whatnot as well.
