Photo of the day: The hunt


The hunt, originally uploaded by The Bacher Family.
In the end, it wasn't much of a "hunt." Volunteers from the Town of Eatonville scattered 3,000 plastic Easter Eggs filled with candy in three different fields (for three different age ranges) behind the Elementary School. Excited kids lined up, and at the "go" they dashed into the grass to collect as many eggs as quickly as they could. I followed with my camera, literally running to keep up; few of those photos turned out at all, but they gave me a time-stamped chronicle of the event proving that from start to finish, collecting all 3,000 eggs took precisely 93 seconds! Now, if only we could get kids this motivated to pick up trash, or pull weeds...

To make this photo and the next one, I laid down on my belly in the grass and focused on the egg, with the lined up people blurred behind. That's Daniel on the far left in the orange and black jacket, holding a white plastic bag.
