Default Ideas for New Scavenger Hunt?

The latest scavenger hunt is coming to a close at the end of the month so if anyone has ideas for a new scavenger hunt please post them here, or contact me privately with them so I can create a new hunt. Darren kindly created the first two hunts which were really amazing so hopefully others can contribute some ideas for hunt items this time around. Please keep in mind that the items should be photographable from anywhere around the world, so an item like 'Ocean' wouldn't work well. Thanks in advance for any ideas, and thanks to Darren for the initial hunt idea as well as coming up with the first two hunts.

I suppose a few more could be ones like
7/ Tranquillity in a fast paced world
8/ adainst all odds (something like a flower growing through a pavement)

9/ Local landmark
10/ Something Edible
11/ Your favorite place
12/ An Abstract

Why don't we include something much closer to ourselves, like our own house, kitchen, living room, toilet or whatever? That is possible for everyone and will definately show different daily life scenes from all over the world.

One of these times how about having an "Impossible Hunt" where it would be almost impossible to get all the listed photos? Include items like "Ocean", "Snow", "Palm Trees", "Altitude", "Skyscraper", "Farming", etc. If you want to give people a fighting chance to get all of them, give it a year to run and run it concurrently with other hunts.

My ideas (pardon me if any were mentioned in other threads, they may be resurfacing subconsciously):

- Primary Colours -- shots that prominently contain the three primary colours (red, blue, yellow).
- Local traditions -- picture that tells us something about a tradition local to the place
- Agriculture
- Nighttime
- Fire (e.g. candle-light, fire light, etc.)
- Mealtime
- Femininity
- Masculinity
- Livestock
- Shallow Depth-of-Field
- Vice (relating to human activities generally considered bad, especially when done to excess)
- Motor Sports & Recreation
- Water Sports & Recreation
- Retirement (people of retirement age or otherwise relating retirement)
- Housing (tell us something about human housing conditions at the locality)
- Cleaning (something related to washing or cleaning)
- Problematic (highlight something that needs to be fixed or changed)

Obviously these aren't meant to be in one hunt, I'm just brainstorming in general.

Thanks everyone for the ideas. I think I'll just pick out twelve of them and do another two month hunt.

And I think that 'Impossible Hunt' idea is great. I will definitely add that in. I think it needs to be even harder though. Thanks again.

Using these ideas, the third scavenger hunt (Turning Autumn) is now posted. Thanks again for the ideas. If there are any suggestions on anything to change, please let me know so I can change it before the hunt begins.

And congratulations to all those who finished (or will finish) the previous hunt!
