2014 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt (Items 9, 11, and 12)

Here are more photos to share in participation of Gallo Organico's
I found all these in the area near my work place - Northridge, CA.
Item 9 - A bakery
This is a chain-store bakery.  I've never been inside.
Really, my kitchen is my bakery.
Item 11 - A horn
This is the horn in my car parked at work.
Item 12 - A mascot
This is the mascot for Bob's Big Boy
a hamburger restaurant chain in the Southwestern US.
This particular one is located about a block away from my work place.
Being vegetarian, I don't go there.
However, I do have childhood memories of dining there.
I do remember people getting upset when they stopped displaying the Big Boy statue.

It's mid-August and there's about one month left on this challenge.
I have yet to photograph the following:
Item 7 - A rural landscape (I can do this)
Item 8 - A tattoo on a person (oh boy)
Item 13 - A sunrise (hmmmm)
Item 15 - A juggler (not too likely)
Item 21 - A photograph of me with something representing the season
However, since I posted Alternative B - A bird house, 
I'm off the hook for one of these, except Item 21.
I could also photograph Alternative A - A kite, hot air balloon or blimp.

The summer makes me want to stay indoors where it's cool.
Playing with dolls...
I'm outfitting the Vogue Glitter Girls in the Dawn Doll outfits.
They're about 1" shorter than the Dawn Dolls, however the short dresses fit.
It's funny how you never outgrow what you really enjoyed as a child.
For me, I loved Dolls (and still do).

I hope you're enjoying your weekend, too.

2014 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt (Items 14, 16, 20 and Alternative B)

2014 Summertime Photography Scavenger Hunt

Item 14: A parade
A parade of ants.  This counts, right?
This may be my only shot at a "parade."

Item 16: A sign in a language other than English
 
It's not difficult to find signs in all languages in Los Angeles.
This one also includes the English equivalent.

Item 20: A bus with a picture painted on its sides
 
This one kind of counts as Item 16, too.

Alternative B: A bird house
This bird house resides at my mother-in-laws house in Eagle Rock, CA.

Okay, I've got some serious photography assignments in August.
The most difficult ones for me will be Item 13: A sunrise and Item 15: A juggler.
However, you never know what you'll come across.
I've been keeping my little pink Sony camera with me at all times, just in case.

I hope your summer is going swimmingly.
Mine is HOT!
