SWAP FULL

DUE JUNE 15TH
ORIGINAL PHOTOS ONLY
NUMBER OF PLAYERS: 20
NUMBER OF ATCS: 3:3


Here recently I was inspired by REM's song Stand.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKKqLl_ZEEY

"Stand in the place that you liiiiive"

Love it.

What I'd like to see isn't a picture of your house,( Please the internet isn't safe for that. ) but something about your town,county,state,country. Something different that we don't usually see. Something you can't find on a postcard. Maybe its something that makes your place stand out from the rest. Lets see crazy perspectives and town monuments like no other. The subject is really up to you. It can even just be something that brings you fond memories or pride about where you live.

This swap is made with the intention of getting you out to see things in your town (etc) that you might have missed on an everyday outing or a new perspective of an everyday monument/object. Please only use ORIGINAL PHOTOS.


The Nitty Gritty:
*US residents please send SASE with enough postage to cover your returns
*Internationals I can cover first 3
*3.5x2.5 size printed in photopaper then secured in sleeves
*tape and I have a love hate relationship so please used very very little
*if you need to withdrawl just let me know :D

Ready to play?

the Big Deal hula competition is in Hilo this week. so. I'm taking along my camera to see what I can find. there are lectures on hula and demonstrations and many craft fairs and lots of people from out of town.....competition begins on thurs evening with Miss Aloha and then follows by two nights of fantastic hula....the stdium is always sold out. We watch on tv and this year we can record it and actually see the late night ones. And there is a big parade on Saturday. Lots of free things .....

I did get some good hula shots. More than I need for this swap so will be using those elsewhere. The first group that danced last night had male almost-naked dancers. they wore lei and loin cloths. the part in the back was very small. I really didn't get to see what the women were wearing as my attention was caught by the male dancers.

I would love to join, but I have a question. Officially I live in Almere in the Netherlands, but I am at the moment in my second home in the US. If I have to use pictures of Almere I will have to find them on the internet, because I will not be back home before late June. Is is okay if I take pictures of my second home???

SOTO
04-29-2011, 08:29 AM
I'd love to join. Just the thought of seeing glimpses of where fellow swappers live is enough to make me want to be in on this!
SOTO
Just one question - my hometown isn't where I live now, but I'd love to use photos of it.
Is that ok?

Wil Opio Oguta- I am totally cool with you using your second home :D

SOTO- As long as they are original pics I am totally not picky :D

OH! Please sign me up! I live in a small Southern town outside of a very large city, so there's lots for me to consider shooting!

And I can't wait to see Nancy's photos! I've always wanted to go to Hawaii...

My photos have been selected, and prints ordered. They should be here by the end of the week, and with any luck I'll have my cards in the mail sometime next week :)

This was such a cool idea - I just recently moved back to my hometown, which is a small town compared to the Metro-Detroit area I was living in. It was wonderful to go walking with my camera and taking photographs! Reacquainted myself with home :) It was hard to choose just a few photos - I initially shot 64 images in one afternoon!

Such a fun swap. I just moved back to my hometown and it was fun to go wandering with my camera getting reacquainted with it :)

Sure! I'd love to add you! The extra benefit is that you live in my area :D so even if a drop out is really late it will take like a DAY for your stuff to come to me!! Welcome fellow Dallasite!

Awesome! I'll get cards ready anyway. Even if I can't join the swap, they can always go into my "For Trade" gallery.

I hope you guys (anderscandy and Arivanna) were safe during last night's storm that rolled through the Metroplex. I was worried about my sister in Carrollton.

*I'm originally from Texas and went to school at UNT, so you can say my heart is still there. :daydreaming:

anderscandy
05-26-2011, 08:48 PM
Yeah I'm ok :D my dogs were a bit freaked out but all in all I'm good. Turns out my sisters neighborhood had three sister tornadoes touch down. They didn't do a whole lot of damage though thank goodness! I posted videos of the craziness before the storm http://www.youtube.com/user/spechulkaye

Arivanna
05-26-2011, 08:59 PM
I am okay too. It was really freaky though. I was actually in the area that was between the two severe portions of the storm so I got lucky and just got a bunch of rain. Unfortunately the sirens went off for every tornado that dropped down even if it was 20 miles away. My new baby kitten was not enjoying that at all.

But it sounds like most people were safe so that is good.

SOTO
05-27-2011, 01:23 AM
Tornados around us, too.
Way too many, and WAY to close!
My dogs just don't understand the concept of sitting in a dry bathtub with me.

Here are my photos taken in my little town of Fruita, in western Colorado. This area is rich in art, sculptures, in particular. The giant flower and dragonfly sculptures are in someone's from yard. So random, but such a lovely surprise! And yes my town has a sculpture dedicated to Mike the Headless Chicken and we have a festival every year to celebrate him, too! Apparently he was a real chicken who lived a few months after getting his head chopped off. The sculpture is fascinating, especially the spurs he is wearing! Anyway, enjoy!:)

Here is the first one of mine, perfect for the coming American holiday: Memorial Day.

A building in my city usually lights up for holidays: Red for Valentine's Day, Green and Red for Christmas. For Memorial Day, it went with the colors of the American flag:

SOTO

Hmm, I thought I'd posted mine, but don't see them, so trying again.
These are from my home town in central Arkansas. I grew up about a block from this mill, played there in my childhood, took my first photos here with my brand new Brownie Hawkeye, had my first kiss here, etc., etc.
Now, though I live over 100 miles away, every time I go back and have the chance, I visit the old mill again. It's a beautiful, magical place, filled with wonderful memories.
I hope those receiving these pictures enjoy them as much as I've enjoyed sharing them with you.

I had fun making the cards for this swap....most people have more than 3 or 4 great things about the place they live--round 2 should be fun, too!
anyway, thanks for hosting Round 1, anderscandy. I received Haystack Rock from MelanieS, Annual Mayfair in Boston, UK from scwk0511 and a power and love mural from CajunKing.
