Pass the Camera, here's the planning.

Here's the list and the planning...
Green dots and yellow flags represent stops.
Sorry if some dots are a few thousand kilometers off no offense intended!

Still some unconfirmed RFF members, as you see on the list, but the "nodes" are confirmed.

I tried to make it shortest in space, and to cross the borders as rarely as possible. Political borders, i mean. Also, i "grouped" some people.
This way we might do it within one year.
The full addresses i will keep, for the moment, under my pillow.

This is just a suggestion!!! I am waiting for your ideas, comments, complaints etc.

I also created a "RFF Member map"-style guestmap, but that's still under construction. Actually, i kinda lost my way on the bravenet.com , so if somebody could set it up right, i would appreciate it

The Canonet seems to work well, i ran a roll through it today (test + my turn), still waiting for the results. If everything seems OK, it will be ready to go!

Grtz

LOL!
sorry Joe, somebody HAS to be at the end! However, i picked you, for 2easons:
1: You guys are two up there in Edmonton. You can always say you are not the VERY last one
2: The cold conserves you, i'm sure you'll be around in a year too.



Seriously, i thought alot about how i should do it. You guys in North-America are so many, that those few exotic folks in Japan, Australia, Colombia would have to wait for ages...

Still, as I said I am open to suggestions!

Hell, I'll be last -- count me in, if it's not too late and Joe can send it down to Idaho. What will "Pass the Camera" be without a shot of Idaho ragweed and sagebrush? Perhaps done to a higher standard is all...

On second thought, considering Joe's Postal history please route it to me first; I'll hand-deliver it to Joe by motorcycle!

Pherdi,
This is how I explain to friends where we are: Idaho is the state the weather people stand in front of when they give the forecast for the rest of the country! On the RFF map I wrote "Everybody Knows this is Nowhere..."

Yeah...you could share the shipping costs to Paris, hehe

Actually, that's the idea of sending it out from London to Tokyo - there are 3 of us there!!!

Funny

But if it is a cute female weather person it is good to be in Idaho.

So we kangaroos, koalas and emus will have to wait a long time before receiving our camera eh? Don't you know that we are actually from the future and can teleport the camera to Europe or Northern America?

I wonder if Brian has already finished with that teleporter... Last think I know is he was doing tests using a Leica digital M, does anybody know if it worked well with it ?

Pherdi, didn't think about that on sharing shipping costs But now that you mention

No, in fact I thought it would be another good excuse to meet and share some focusing fluid, but seems I'm the lone Barcelonian...

By the way, the letters mean South, North-West etc.
Joe - NNN means darn far up northnorthnorth.

It's a QL17 GIII. Including battery, strap, case, lens cap, lens hood (not to lose!!! at least not before B.Mattock gets it )

Shipping within the US usually doesn't take more than a 4 or 5 days. If you use priority mail it shouldn't be more than 3 days, maybe faster.
For example, from Tulsa to Dallas is about an 8 hour drive, it should take the Post Office about 48 hours to make the trip If #13 wanted to meet me at the border, we could save almost two days.

CleverName, i guess it's a good idea what you say; if nearest neighbors do it personally instead of waiting for the mail, should work much faster. And it's a good excuse for a meeting

Natalia, it's still there, RFF home, left side links, on the bottom. In fact, i used that too, for the maps I made.

Just want to encourage folks to put themselves on our map

http://pub20.bravenet.com/guestmap/v...num=1637362376


Just occured to me ....maybe we could create a separate map with Bravenet to track the camera's way?

Great work, lots of fun. Maybe whoever is last on the list could start by sending a camera in the opposite direction? Just a thought from someone who isn't last on the list # ^ ]

I tried that, but i failed so far, as i wrote above.
It's not too urgent, however

Mac, easy: receive camera, shoot a roll of film through it, to show us your world; develop it; send the camera further. Select the frame you like most, scan, post here (somewhere).

also, (it might have been said already)...it would be great to include the "directions" concerning the project in the package or post them here, so that all would follow the guidelines as agreed.

Groovy... I get to look forward to another to another package in the mail.

Looking at the global map I saw two things straight off...
1). The daylight/night map is based on 6:00AM GMT with winter in the northern hemisphere and summer in the southern hemisphere.

2). According to the map the camera is going to Wanganui rather than Auckland. Oh well at least the camera is coming to Middle Earth.

Yeah, maybe, Walker; however, Rob still did not confirm his participation, and i have no address of him.
How big is Atlanta? How famous is the guy? Is it enuff to write "Rob, Atlanta, GA" on the box?

Natalia: great tracking map, willl be nice to follow the camera. Also, the "rules" will be in the box, together with the addresses, and indeed we should put them up here in a clear place.
Emailing will happen too,i guess.

mac, "nat": First we should ask someone to set up a gallery here, as suggested by Mango and others. I think we should limit ourselves to one or two shots (there'll be sixty-something persons submitting!!!)
And, the rules etc can be put there too.
a second RFF book from the pics is a great idea!


digitalox: sure, that's why you are put under one number

Stu, - 1: I stole the map from a site i've found with google. Pssst! It is showing the daylight situation in the moment when i took it. It was the coolest world map i've found
2: Be sure to pick it up in Wanganui.
OK OK, i had no patience to look for a NZ map too, only for you. That's why I apologized for those miles, i knew i [email protected] it up here and there.

Pherdinand,

How about posting the contact sheet (or its digital equivalent) and a few full size photos? I think someone posted this idea on the original thread.
