Scavenger Hunt #34 – Chaotic

Blurry reflection of a building and blue sky in moving waters

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”.

I had another word in mind when I shot around that place, but I still think this works for “Chaotic” – at least when it comes to the chaotic nature of fluid dynamics 😉 This is a reflection of building along the Limmat. I don’t remember the exact timing of this picture, but I remember spending some time chasing reflections, and being very happy when a police motorboat started adding perturbation to the mix. Retrospectively, I kind of regret not cropping that shot in a way that would make it more abstract as it is there, but I think it fits the “Zürich” theme better that way.
