I have no idea where this is – it almost looks like some sort of salt flats somewhere – but, I love this pic, with birds of all colours chilling out on a sunny afternoon!

Camera #181: Zocalo

April 15, 2009

Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /homepages/46/d90804986/htdocs/anonymousphotoproject.com/html/blog/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 82

The last camera that placed while in Mexico was Camera #181, which was placed in the Zocalo de Puebla, in Puebla, Mexico. The Zocalo is basically the central square, downtown, in front of the main church. It was a Friday evening, and the place was hopping with all sorts of people. The hardest part was trying to find a spot that wasn’t too crazily busy so that people wouldn’t see me placing the camera, but would see the package and go pick it up.

I’m hoping that it worked!

The Express on Shaw

Back in December, I was interviewed for a segment about The Anonymous Photo Project for The Express on Shaw TV, here in Vancouver. The segment aired in early January, but since I don’t have cable, I wasn’t able to see it, or get it for all of you folks to see.

Fortunately, the kind people at Shaw were nice enough to send me a copy of it, and now, you can see it!

I cringe a bit every time I see myself on TV, but I think they did a good job!

Featured Picture: Lonely Building

This building, from Camera #33, looks so lonely. Sure, there’s other buildings around, but they’re all turned away at the edge of the frame, shunning this poor little building – just because it doesn’t have a fresh paint job…

Camera #180: Eco-park Xcaret

April 8, 2009

Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /homepages/46/d90804986/htdocs/anonymousphotoproject.com/html/blog/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 82

While I was in Playa del Carmen, in Mexico, I went to an eco-park nearby called Xcaret. I brought along a camera to place there, hoping that someone there would find it and decide to take pics of their holiday.

When I first got there, I was all like – okay, gotta find a good place for this. And then I instantly forgot and walked around in the hot sun, checking everything out, including a couple of Jaguars that decided to get amorous just as I arrived.

By the time I finally remembered that I had the camera, it was pretty late in the day, and there weren’t many places to put it. In the evening, everyone goes to a large theatre to watch a two hour show about Mexican culture. Perfect – That’s where everyone was going to be! Unfortunately, I didn’t arrive until shortly before the show started, but, I was able to find time to put Camera #180 on the counter in the men’s washroom.

Thanks for the links!

Near the beginning of my trip to Mexico, I started receiving a bunch of comments and requests to Help Spread the Project [more on that to come!] – more than the usual amount. Usually this means that someone’s posted a link to the project. And, after checking out my stats, this was indeed the case.

The number one culprit was A Cup of Jo, a blog on art, photography and more – if you look closely in the link, you’ll see the link to The Anonymous Photo Project – trust me.

Also, there was a glowing post on Take Nothing But Polaroids. My favorite lines:

If this were the Olympics and freak’n awesome social experiments was a event. These guys would win gold!

The Project was also mention on a Norwegian blog, The Keep. The link is “steder” in the line “I etterkant har det litt gjentatt andre steder!” Which, run through Google Translate, translates as “Following are some repeated elsewhere!”

Also, Friends with Benefits,  and my first Tumbl.

Thanks everyone!

Camera #179: Playa del Carmen

April 6, 2009

Deprecated: preg_replace(): The /e modifier is deprecated, use preg_replace_callback instead in /homepages/46/d90804986/htdocs/anonymousphotoproject.com/html/blog/wp-includes/formatting.php on line 82

So, I’ve been really bad at updating the blog with all of the new things that have been happening, but, this post will be the beginning of fixing that. I know, I’ve been bad, please forgive me!

While I was in Mexico, I went to Playa del Carmen, a resorty beach city, near Cancun, but smaller. The day before leaving, I realized that I had yet to place a camera in the city I spent a week in… whoops!

The busiest area, with the most foot traffic, and hopefully the most success of getting someone to pick up the camera and do something with it, is Avenida 5, the main tourist drag. There a bunch of benches along the avenida, so, I walked up and down, trying to find the right one. It had to be in an area with enough people walking by that someone would notice it, and, also not already occupied. I finally resorted on placing Camera #179 on a bench near Calle 6 Sur.
