Two Thumbs Up!

I can't stop thinking about an idea I came across as I was meandering through my brain candy yesterday...

On A Cup of Jo, there was a post about someone who had tied a disposable camera to a bench and wrote a note that said,

Good afternoon,
I attached this camera to the ben
ch so you could take pictures. Seriously. So have fun. I'll be back later this evening to pick it up.
Love, Jay / The Plug
As you look at the pictures (seen here), you can tell that this small little gesture made the moments spent at this ordinary little bench, a little more interesting and a lot more fun.

This project SO reminds me of something my Dad would like (and probably try)... he LOVES disposable cameras! Daddio, if you do this - you have to let us know how it goes.

I think I'm going to pick up a disposable camera when I'm at the store this weekend, and try it somewhere here in KC. I already have some good spots in mind, and if it works, I will be sure to post pictures here asap!

Thumbs up!

That is such a cool idea!

marvelous idea! I can't wait to see the result... you know... in other places of the country you'd come back to find the camera had been stolen. ;) in fact, in some parts of KC you'll have the same problem. But there are some adorable locations in KC (I have family there) so I can't wait to see the results :)

I think it's aq great idea. And how creative. I'd worry that it would be stolen too, so it's nice to be reminded that there are people in the world who can take things at face value without having to actually take them.

I know what you mean, Franki... I have yet to decide on the exact location, but hopefully this coming weekend, I will get it all set up!

Let me know next time you come for a visit and we'll grab a glass of wine together!

Jessie, I will certainly take you up on that! We come out regularly and I would LOVE to meet you :)
