Photo Scavenger Hunt

I had a wild weekend in San Francisco with some wonderfully fun people. We met at Buena Vista Park to begin with birthday festivities. We were surprised with a beautiful bag of goodies: sidewalk chalk, plastic tools for props, silly string, bags of candy, a dunny for a mascot, a pinwheel, play-dough, a disposable camera and a list of things that we needed to find and photograph for our scavenger hunt through the Haight.
There were four groups with 3-4 people in each group. Here is Marissa posing in front of a mural that is purple (two challenges in one photo).

 We had to meet a new friend, find out their name, birthday, occupation, and then get a photo of them with our mascot. We decided to jump in the photo just for fun. I loved how Finn's mom was dressed for her first visit to Haight Street! Jenna was so hungry that she kept on eating during the photo.
We were challenged to find a sign and act it out. Jenna is trying to "rent" Marissa for a little companionship.

 I gravitate toward any location that has a photo booth. I was ecstatic when Jenna & Marissa told me they had found one in Wasteland, a second hand clothing store. We spent far too much of our scavenger hunt time in the booth but it was totally worth it. We have 6 strips to scan and share later on!

The girls used pink play-dough and fashioned mustaches for one of the photos. This is my favorite from the day:
 Haight is a playground for tourists, locals, and people just looking for a good time. We had so much fun with the interactive signs.

We had so much fun getting creative with the challenges. I am very inspired and am sure I will be doing something similar for my next birthday. To see more photos we took with my digital camera, check out my flickr set for the day. Click here to see the photos we took with the disposable camera for the photo scavenger hunt. They are definitely worth a look!
