My goal with Hunt 34 was to do something closer to a “real” Scavenger Hunt and to take all my shots outside in the city. I have a mix of “found shots” and “places I know where I’ll be able to take a shot” for this round, and that felt pretty good. I also have a new, more compact camera than my Pentax “monster” – so I also wanted the opportunity to shoot with it more and get more comfortable with it: my other goal for this Hunt was “everything shot with the Fuji”.
“Bridge” was pretty much a given for a “main view” of the city that would come in play for the final “collect your images” picture – I wanted to go for a postcard type of views. I waited for a tram to drive by – because you can’t have a proper view of Zürich without a tram – and took a few pictures. Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t as clear as I would have hoped over the Alps in the background. Even more unfortunately, the weather was much better the next week, I was in that area… and I didn’t think of re-shooting that picture!
Anyway – that’s the original image – it has bluer tones, it’s somewhat crooked, and the background is less visible; those were the main edits on that picture.
