Happy Holidays everyone!
A couple of updates for you. On December 26 [Boxing Day here in Canada], Emmi Jormalainen left Camera #125 where Santa lives! She left the camera Under the Christmas tree on Santa Claus Village, in Rovaniemi, Finland, in the Arctic Circle. According to Wikipedia, the Santa Claus Village is claimed to be where Santa lives, and Rovaniemi is home to the world’s most northerly McDonald’s.
According to Google Maps, the Santa Claus Village is further north than McDonald’s, which means that the camera was placed further North than any McDonald’s. In your face Micky D’s!
Hopefully, someone will find the camera under the tree and make sure it makes it’s way back! Camera #85, was placed at the entrance to Santa House in North Pole, Alaska in September of 2007, but never made it back. I have a feeling that Santa is hoarding cameras from The Project, and, obviously houses!
And, unrelatedly, recently, Barbie Hauzinger came across The Anonymous Photo Project and has decided to Help Spread the Project. Thanks Barbie!

A couple of people contacted me after my appearance on Breakfast Television, wanting to Help Spread the Project by making their own packages and dropping them off for people to find. Jason is going to leave a camera in Surrey, BC. And, DickL is taking a number of cameras on his vacation to Mexico, and he even translated a letter into Spanish so that people who don’t read English will be able to take part if they find a camera.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens!

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.

Well, after being posted on poppytalk a couple of days ago, there’s been an increase in interest in the Project. Three people have decided that they want to Help Spread the Project. And these folks aren’t kidding around – between them, they want to place 19 cameras for others to find.
It’ll be good to have more cameras out there. And, get some back! It’s been a while since any have been returned…
Sarah, from Arizona, has decided to drop four cameras off in her area – maybe it’ll be the luck the Phoenix Suns need to win a game against the Spurs!
Jason, from Seattle, is taking on five cameras.
And, The Girl, who travels a lot, has gone for 10 cameras to spread in a whole bunch of places that the project hasn’t reached yet.
Thanks everyone! And, if anyone else is interested in dropping camera packages off for people to find, you can find more information here.

Within a few days of buying an ad on The Million Zimbabwean Homepage, I had 3 contacts from people wanting to Help Spread the Project – aka place cameras about.
First, Mo from Providence, Rhode Island said that she would like to create and place 6 camera packages.
Then, the next day, Igor from New York City asked to place one camera for now, with the possibility of doing a whole bunch more with a bunch of disposable cameras that a friend has. Lets just hope it doesn’t come back smashed!
And the, the day after that Audrey Horne from Salt Lake City wanted to place a camera. Hopefully when it comes back it will have some pictures on it, rather than how Camera #19 came back.
The $3 ad really paid off
In addition to these 8 cameras, The Hammer will be placing a camera somewhere in Victoria, BC.
This has been a productive few days for the project!
