photo scavenger hunt

Back when i was living in Korea, one of my talented photography friends, Dom decided to create a Photo scavenger hunt all around Seoul. There were about 5 teams of four members each who took part in the photo hunt missions which lasted an entire fun-filled jam-packed day. Each team was given a mission sheet which listed a variety of "photo-missions" which we had to snap. Each mission was worth a different number of points and the team with the most points at the end of the day won the grand prize which was handed out at a prize giving dinner that we had in Seoul. Each team had a name and dress-code and we all rushed around Seoul trying to snap as many of the photo missions as we could. It was a RIDICULOUSLY fun day.

Our Team: Blake Swan and the Bacardi Ninjas. We decked ourselves in black-stealth and stopped off for a margarita-lunch at the starting-line to get things rolling...


The target list included some of the following photo-missions:

  • Entire team in a human pyramid (extra points for including strangers)
  • Entire team with the strangest dressed stranger
  • One Team member doing a cartwheel
  • Entire team outside an ice-cream shop (extra points for getting an employee to sing, dance or do something funny)
  • Entire team in a bathroom stall
  • A "street performance"
  • Entire team carrying a stranger
  • Entire team in a shopping cart
  • Photo titled "I can't believe we fit in there"
  • One team member eating silkworm larvae (it's a korean thing and NO, we didn't do it.)
  • Entire team with coloured tongues
  • Entire team with spoons hanging off their noses
  • A sidewalk tragedy
  • A contradiction
  • One team member "subway sleeping"
  •  Team member with a stranger with 'interesting hair'
  • Challenge a stranger to a running race
  • Team member chugging a beer
  • At least two team members being chased by another team
  • A fortune teller
  • Entire team posing like mannequins from inside a store window
  • At least one team member not doing what the sign says
  • An accident waiting to happen
  • A sign of spring

that's four people in a bucket.

(oh yes, midway through proceedings, Blake and I decided to get our ears pierced. 
Cause we're ninjas and all.)
Entire team with a wild animal. ha

One Team member doing a cartwheel. Yeah, that'd be me.
I would have loved to include a few more videos and pics from this day but unfortunately most of them include too much swearing, beer chugging, profanity, drinking, guffawing, hysterics, wild cackling laughter are inappropriate. haha if only you knew... ;)

Such an awesome idea! I can see my friends getting a little "raucous and uncouth" (as my old principal used to say)
