me & you 52 {join us!}

I am super excited today to announce the public launch of Me & You 52, a new collaborative photography blog I am starting with my fabulous bloggy friend Anika. The idea is simple:
  • 52 weeks
  • one word each week (based on consecutive letters of the alphabet)
  • we each take a photo with our mobile phones inspired by the weekly word
  • we post our photos side by side every Monday on the blog and in our flickr group
We've been at it for a couple of weeks, testing the waters before making it public. This week we are up to "C" and our word is conversation. Here is my interpretation:

Our word for "A" was abode, and for "B" we compared our breakfasts. Pop over to the new blog if you want to see our images inspired by those words.

If you love mobile photography or want to learn more about how you can get great images out of your camera phone, we hope you will get involved in Me & You 52. You can play as often or as little as you want--if you are looking for a project for the new year, maybe this is the one for you.

Here's how you can play...

Every Monday we will post the current week's theme in our flickr group. All you have to do is add your images inspired by that word to the pool and tag them with the weekly theme word and apps that you used. We are still working out the details, but at some point we will be sharing select images from participants on the blog. Oh, and if you are a planner, all the themes for the year are listed here.

OK, so that's it. Thanks Anika for asking me to collaborate on this project with you! And everyone else, I hope you will take a look over there and consider following along on the blog and joining our flickr group. It's going to be a lot of fun!

I'm having fun already! Loving our collaboration and yes, think it will be even more fun to see what others can create. I was working on "D" last night ;)

I am so excited about your new project. Two of my favorite photographers together - how fun. You are really making me wish I'd join the modern world and finally get a camera phone.
