Thank goodness. I was thinking you would never ask us. :D

I hope lots of people will take part this year. I think it is one of the most interesting projects around.
The only thing that would improve it (IMO) would be to have a note next to each photo of what country or city it was taken in.
Or if that is too much work, then maybe we should all add a bit of text into the photos.

This year, the 1st is on a Saturday, so that is good, gives us a bit more of a chance to take different scenes.

Count me in. If I am not in hospital. But then if I was in Hospital. I could show my legs to everyone.

Yes, Anna.
Not that I am Jimmy. :lol:
but I know how it works now, we've done it a few times.
There were a couple of years there where it was great and lots of people joined in and then there were a couple of times where only a few of us made the effort and even some of the regulars didn't join in.

It's pretty easy-just 3 snaps of anything at all during the day. Most years, I have been at work and have just had to take some of around the palce there, without including children's faces etc. Or my cat, or the view from my driveway as I get home.
Lots of things have been included by people.Cooking dinner, having a cup of tea. Washing on the line.
Anything, really.

The main thing is to contribute, to make it interesting.
I'm hoping that lots of the regular boardies will be able to join in this year.

SHHHH!!! :lol:
Well, we want the photos.

There's no prize, Anna.
This is just about making an annual record of the lives of a group of us around the world.
You get to see what people were doing, where they were that day.
I really like the fact it is just ordinary photos of life.

I also think it is fairly unusual in that if this continues, in time there will be a record dating back a decade (or who knows, decades if we don't all collect the cark it awards :wink: ) of a group from round the world.

I have seen plenty of 'One day around the world" type books, but never one that is taken over a period of years. Quite historical when you think of it. :D

You should join in, Anna. It would add a bit of interest. :D

It’ll take more than a pretty face and a low cleavage to get me into your coffee shop... but it may help ;) .....

There’s one place that I go to where these two twins work... lovely girls... anyways... one of them now and again stamps my coffee card twice... but shhh, don’t tell the boss ;) ;)

Damn, it falls on a really bad day for me, one of those long 06:00 to 17:00 days, no chance of taking a camera with me.

Do you have a camera on your phone, curly? You could perhaps use that, or else a series of dawn and dusk shots I guess-you leaving home, arriving back.

Don't have a mobile phone these days, and I feel much better without it. I leave the house before dawn and return before sunset, maybe I could force myself into some original thinking.

There is no reason why you cannot take your camera to work. You could take a photo of yourself feet up on the desk ringing up your Bookie to have a bet on the Spurs.
