ABCD - will you take part?

From Sonja's blog:

"Gary came up with a great idea, and I hope that lots of moto-bloggers will have the opportunity to take part in the the first WWW centerline challenge on the 1st of May.

Maybe you would like to join in with this.....

A Bloggers Centerline Day, or ABCD, will take place on Sunday 1st May 2011.

The plan is to inspire as many bloggers as possible to go outside and take a photograph of themselves on this day, wherever they are in the world. The photo can be creative, arty, contain more than one person, be in any type of location and can contain anything else you like. It must however contain the centerline of a road and at least part of you, the blogger.

There are 5 rules....

Rule 1 - the picture must be taken on 1st May 2011.

Rule 2 - the picture must be of yourself, and you must be a person that publishes a blog. You can include whatever else you like in the picture, including other people if you wish.

Rule 3 - the picture must include the centerline of a road.

Rule 4 – you should publish the picture on your blog on 1st May 2011, along with a few words about the picture and why you chose that location or pose.

Rule 5 - when you have posted the picture on your own blog, put a comment on http://garysusatour.blogspot.com/2011/04/abcd-will-you-take-part.html and include in that comment the address of your own blog post containing your own picture.

Gary France will then pick his favourite photos and publish these as being the winners. There will be a prize of $100 awarded to the overall single winner, as chosen by Gary.

In order to get this event known as widely as possible, please copy and paste this posting onto your own blog, including the title. Please do that today!

As a reminder to yourself to take the photo and post it, put an entry into your diary for 1st May 2011.

Let’s see if we can get as any people to join in as possible. "

Think I'll be having a go. Any reader with his/her own blog care to join in?


  1. I just blogged this too! Can't wait to see where all the posted photos!

  2. Should be interesting. Now, big questions: full face, or just the left boot for mystery?

  3. Sounds fun, just reposted. Now to come up with a photo idea...

  4. Heh, yeah, something arty farty ... I*'m feeling in a monochrome mood this year.

  5. Maybe a monochrome picture of just your left boot?

  6. Careful - that could be construed as material help to a competitor ...

    If you look through the last few weeks here (I assume you haven't, or you would be dribbling in a corner by now) you will see that I have already bored people silly with tales of my boots. I'm thinking perhaps a shot of a single waterproof glove lying in the road, which will challenge traditional notions of selfhood and critique Western cultural hegemony by portraying an iconoclastic dichotomy of the multiple identities we all negotiate within our psyches and with each other in a holistic intercommunion. With my hand in it, of course.

    In monochrome.

  7. Thanks Richard. I think I understood what you said! Maybe just a few too many long words for me though...
