This afternoon we went out in three teams on a digital photo scavenger hunt around Belfast. Driving around trying to snap the 25 required shots. (If you ever need an idea to keep a group of young people brimming with enthusiasm for an afternoon - or summer evening - then this is a really fun and simple idea. Could work for us oldies too - along as you have some safe drivers.)
Any idea how hard it is to get a photograph with a police man or woman. It involves first finding one out on the beat, and then chasing them down the street until they agree that it’s appropriate to pose for a photo. (One group called in at Police Headquarters – and eventually got a shot after a hunt for someone in uniform).
A picture of a red Renault Clio proves that Clios aren't as plentiful as they used to be. And woolly scarves are in short supply this summer!
A photo of Kelvin should have been straightforward. Botanic Gardens, front gate. And there he stands on a plinth in front of the Ulster Museum. Except that Just for Laughs were filming at the entrance today. Kirtsteen O’Sullivan in a wedding dress, a camera hidden in a bin, and a small army packed into a white transit van.
Some of the other regulars were there too.
(Jett wasn’t at the shoot … otherwise LTA, JFL and AiB could have collided.)
