Island Livin’

In August, I went with some friends on a bike camping trip to the San Juan Islands. I found room enough in my paniersto bring three cameras along, and I placed them around the two islands we went to. A couple of weeks ago, Camera #114 came back.

This camera seems to have been picked up by a fellow camper – it probably helps that I left it on the beach of the campground. Many of the pics are of the campground we stayed in, and the surrounding area. The photo of the starfish, seaweed, and lock of hair – above – is my personal favourite.

Life is Dynamite!

A while ago, Chandler Poling of the Life is Dynamite blog contacted me wanting to Help Spread the Project. His blog deals with old and found photographs, so, it fits in with the found nature of The Anonymous Photo Project. He’s based in New York, and I definitely look forward to seeing what new stuff comes back from there!

Previous New York cameras have been lost, smashed, and returned empty. And three others have made it back with pictures: #60, #62, #72.

Say Swiss Cheese!

So, I’ve been terrible lately at providing updates as to what’s been going on with the project, but here’s an attempt to remedy that.

Over a month ago, the Project got another camera back – from Switzerland! Camera #122 was placed by Lori and Pax in Geneva under a palm tree in the courtyard of MAMCO (Musee d’art moderne et contemporain + Centre de la Photographie). I think putting it outside the Centre de la Photographie was key, since it was picked up and returned with a bunch of interesting shots. There’s art, street scenes, junk, jazz, and costumed ladies.

It’s not the first camera to have gone to Europe, but it’s the first one that’s been dropped there and returned. Camera #60 was placed in New York, and went all the way to France and back. And, Camera #33 went on a Scandinavian cruise after being left near Toronto.

Switzerland, the San Juan Islands and Down Under

September 4, 2008

It’s been busy here at the project lately – and I’ve been neglecting my updating duties! It’s been over a month since my last post, but that doesn’t mean that there hasn’t been anything going on. There’s been a bunch, and this post is about the new cameras that have gone out into the wild.

My friends, Lori and Pax, went on a European trip and dropped a couple of cameras in Switzerland on July 12:

  • #122: Under a palm tree in the courtyard of MAMCO (Musee d’art moderne et contemporain + Centre de la Photographie). Rue de Vieux-Grenadiers, Genève, Switzerland.
  • #126: On the bleachers at the skateboard park. Plaine De Plainpalais. Genève, Switzerland.

And, I went on a bike camping trip to the San Juan Islands in Washington with some other friends – one of the reasons for taking this long to provide updates as to what’s going on. I was able to fit 3 cameras in my paniers, and, after finding a post office to get some postage, I dropped them off:

  • Camera #114 was placed on the beach at Odlin County Park on Lopez Island on August 13. It was near a whole bunch of camp sites.
  • Also on August 13, I left Camera #116 was left at the entrance to the San Juan County Fair in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. Unfortunately, due to my neglect, it was labeled #113, which was already placed! Whoops!
  • And, on the last day of the journey, on August 14, Camera #115 found itself on the Boardwalk at Spring St + Front St in Friday Harbor on  San Juan Island.

And last, but definitely not least, the prolific placer, The Girl, found herself on the other side of the International Date Line in New Zealand and Australia, and left 2 cameras in each.

  • Camera #152 was left on a bench in Albert Park on August 7 in Auckland.
  • The same day, Camera #153 was left on a bench outside the Auckland Art Gallery.
  • Camera #154 was left at Starbucks in Hawthorn, Glen Ferrie Road in Melbourne, Australia on Friday morning, August 15.
  • And, on August 19, Camera #155 was dropped in Melbourne on a table just outside of Subway and the Shoe Repair Shop in Hawthorn.

So, a very prolific period! 2 new countries and 9 cameras in just over a month – it’s been a while since The Project was this busy.

And, a bit of a teaser: 2 of these have already been returned!
