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 expected to be in a bit of trouble with “Lemon” – should I bring a random lemon to a location? Or try to find a restaurant with “Lemon” in its name and go from there? (I knew at least some places with “Lemongrass” in the name.) So I actually searched on Google Maps for, well, “lemon”. And there’s a shop called “Blue Lemon” on one of the iconic squares of Zürich, Paradeplatz. I felt a bit self-conscious taking pictures in that place – lots of people, and feeling a bit weird about taking pictures of that shop! I finally landed on the following picture. Since I wanted the theme to be obvious and not hidden somewhere in the image, I went for the selective coloring of the lemon in post. And since I like Easter eggs, I also re-saturated te blue to get the faint blue at the bottom of the tram too 😉
