the scavenger hunt

Over the weekend, Rama and I got roped into a lunchtime party at a Chinese restaurant. The food was great, but we didn’t know that many people and we were preoccupied with all the to-do’s we weren’t checking off our list.

In my MSG-comatose state, I leaned over to Rama and whispered, “I’m bored.”

“Me too,” he admitted.

Rather than letting me wallow or whine, though, Rama came up with a brilliant idea: A photo scavenger hunt. On a piece of paper, he scrawled six items I had to photograph in 6 minutes.

I darted off with my camera, dodging tables and chairs, and snapped all the shots I needed. It was so much fun.

You can see the rest of the shots here.
