Photo scavenger hunts seem to be all the rage at the moment. They’re also quite easy, as just about everyone has a camera in their phone. Doni, from Girls Guide to Paris, asked me to create one for her tours in Provence. I thought that Uzès, which it’s rich history and architecture, would be the perfect city for this.
What is a Photo Scavenger Hunt?
A photo scavenger hunt is a fun, dynamic way to see a city rather than taking a tour. The pamphlet here guides you through the city at your own leisure while giving you some history. This can be done in a small or large group. It’s also a great excuse to find yourself with photos at the end of the day that serves as not only souvenirs but a real sense of the town.
There are only 3 photos to take on this scavenger hunt as the pamphlet (meant to be printed and folded into three) was made for visitors that would only be in the city for a short time. You can find the answers at the end of this post!
If you have all day, I challenge you to also find the following:
- An interesting gargoyle
- A colorful door
- An archway over a small street
- A very small window (about a foot high) called a fenestron by the French
- A board with a restaurant’s plat du jour or dish of the day
- An artisanal pottery store
- A delicious confection
- A dog on a café table chair
- A plane tree
- An olive tree
- A straw market bag
- A statue
- A fountain
- A charming courtyard
- A clock on the outside of a building
- A beautiful view
For the Photography Enthusiasts
Take your time with the photos. If you see a beautiful door, step back and frame it evenly. Remember, you’re in the South of France if you have to wait for people to get out of the way, don’t worry.
