Hi all,

I have checked the camera out. It works.. as well as a Holga can, and I will be putting the list together at the end of the week. I am, fortunately, or not, in Germany till Friday. I'll be monitoring this and all the other threads and getting all the names together.
I suspect this will be an interesting round.

They're plastic. Shoot 'em with a big enough gun and they splinter into little bitty pieces.

Drop them on the floor and they splinter into little bitty pieces.

Do I tape the pieces back together before I mail it to the next person? Or is that something they do?

You just have to identify the cornerstone piece - and leave the rest to the next person.

EDIT: For a moment I believed this was the camera #6 thread.... this comment doesn't make much sense in this thread...

I may be too late, but would be interested in joining the group. I am in the USA.
This sounds like such an interesting project. If it's too late for me this time, I'll keep watch for the next round.

Thanks!

... I am, fortunately, or not, in Germany till Friday. Gosh! I came too late to this thread. You were in Germany and I did not know. Where have you been?

All,

Yes, I planned on C7 going out this week but for job considerations (like I get to keep mine I hope), I was in Aachen till today (Thursday). Ruediger, if you are near Aachen, I seem to be headed back in the middle of August for a week or two. Let me know, I'll figure out how to meet.

tim in san jose (sorta)I am not near Aachen, but who cares, I still have some vacation left and never have been to Aachen before. My wife has relatives in Colone, so this might be the opportunity. Let me know once you have the fixed dates and we work something out. Some friends are visiting us in August, but every date after the 23 of August should work.

Cheers
Ruediger

I just want to throw an idea out for camera 7 or 8. lately, I have heard a lot of people in my school talk of synechdoche, which is a very interesting literary concept to me, so I'm thinking, what about synechdoche as a photographic concept?


*EDIT* I believe my quote plainly shows my opinion of Holgas...:)

meaning "simultaneous understanding" ???

Perhaps a holistic view among the members of the clan?

We send a camera around without film as the results get better as the resources diminish towards zero?

Or take it one step further... all members shoot the filmless camera, throw a new roll of film into the box with express thoughts of what they would shoot if there were film, I get the box back with all the un-shot film, I shoot the film (but only 11 out of 12 exposures per roll, develop the film and see if that 12th image is what the sender implied and does it relate to what what I shot? A true test of the transmogrification of virtual latent image to the physical world.

Is that kind of what you had in mind?

I do apologize to all members of the group. I have been out of town and mostly out of the country for the last 7 weeks. I will get the list together and get this done.

AHHHHHH! I made a goof! Never trust your spel cheker. :)

What I meant was synecdoche. I'm big on the part for whole idea. Not necessarily photographing the stereotypical "all hands on deck" but what if, rather than shooting something/someone, focus closely on one feature or part that is very expressive. I tried this once with Disney Hall, and rather than just shooting the building as a whole, I got really close to a specific curve of the building. The results can be great, because every image becomes a study in line/form. How does the clarified idea float, Tim?

That's a good idea Lisa... but I have an even better one...

How about we put two cameras in a box.. send them off to the UK.. lose them.. find them again.. Then send them off around Europe.
Finally sending them on to Canada.. only to lose them in transit somewhere over the Rockies ..

Oh no hang on.. that's already been done! :rolleyes::o

Lol, Sile. I can't take credit for that one, it was Tim's. I do love it though.
