Google+ has been a great place to meet other photographers and see a vast array of images that inspire me to want to be a better photographer. There are also things like scavenger hunts and daily themes that help with pushing you out of your safety zones. One of the most popular events on Google+ for photographers is the Chrysta Rae Scavenger Hunt. The hunt is limited to the first 500 people who sign up and there are 10 categories to do. You have a month and then all the photos are collected by Chrysta and given over to a group of "photography celebrity" judges to vote on. The above photo was for the "Brown" category and was taken when I was in Indianapolis for a conference. It didn't win but I was happy to have found something that I thought fit the category pretty well. It's interesting to see all the different ways people interpret each category. I'll probably not do the scavenger hunt again but will still look forward to the reveals for those who continue to do them.
