Do this cool Numbers Photo Calendar with me


I LOVE this!!!
I want to make one!!!
SO I was thinking, hhhmmm thats not going to be easy to find all those cool numbers to photograph. I need 1 - 31 and all the letters of the days of the week. So I've been brewing a plan. I thought what if other people wanted to do this as well and we all took photos around New Zealand of cool, funky numbers and letters and grouped them all together and then we could pick the numbers we like and all make our own calender from numbers around New Zealand.
HOW COOL WOULD THAT BE!!
So then I thought I could post it here and see who was keen and then set up a group in Flickr for people to add their photos and I'm sure in no time we'll have our NZ Numbers photo calendar.
HERE'S where the idea originated. They have a link to groups already set up on Flickr with numbers but I wanted mine to be ideally my photos but I soon realised that would be too hard so the next best thing would be photos taken by people I know around NZ.
OK, so who's interested. Leave a comment and if we get enough people I'll set up a group and we'll start taking number and letter photos. Can't wait to get this going and see who wants to join me.

You don't need to ask me twice, I am always on the lookout for these sorts of things to photograph. If you are looking for a street sign, then there is a SUN place in Henderson. (I checked wises.co.nz for all days of the week but only found Sun)!! Until I hear from you I will keep my camera handy on my travels.

I remembered I have a photo of a speed limit sign which I took cos it is the same as the year I was born, "65" and thought oh that could work then DOH! realised the numbers only need to be 1-31 rofl!!!

I'll keep a look out - I'm on the search for letters of the alphabet (but not obvious letters, made from things around us), so looking for a few numbers will be no problem!!

Penny said...

Hi guys, I am making a photo collage for my husband for our anniversary with all of the numbers from 1-60 (to be replaced by our photos as time goes on). I ran across this string as I was searching for photos of numbers. Who do I talk to to find out if I can use or purchase copies of the numbers you have from 1-31?
