Many new swappers have asked to join this swap, so I'm making a "newbie" version. Seasoned swappers that meet the first swaps requirements can join both, but take different pictures just in case you're paired with the same partner!
I'm always terribly interested in people's day-to-day lives. That's probably why I watch so many documentaries. When I receive a penpal letter and the author speaks of their house or their pets I always envision what they look like. In this swap, I'd like to reveal the mystery!
So, you're going buy a new disposable camera and use ALL of it to take photos of your house, your cat, your neighborhood, your spouse, your car...whatever you want to share with a swapper. Make it themed if you want: snap photos of your city's landmarks or natural landscape. Take twenty-five photos of yourself in different wigs...whatever! (With that being said, I would totally be excited about a bunch of wig photos).
Then, you're mailing off the camera to your partner. They'll develop it.
It would probably be a good idea to write a short note to accompany your camera, but don't disclose too much of the content of the photos. It will spoil the surprise of developing them.
A few rules:
-No nudity or illegal activities, please! These cameras will be developed by professionals, so don't embarass your swap partner!
-Try to be mindful of people's dislikes and do a profile browse before your photo expedition. If someone is afraid of bugs or clowns; don't take photos of them.
-Don't try to be Ansel Adams. When a photo has heart, it's always beautiful!
-This is the newbie version of a recent swap. I'm opening it to everyone with a well-filled profile and no recent 1's or 3's. I'll be checking so please contact me with your explanations.
-Any questions? Contact me directly.
I'm giving a fairly long period to take the photos and mail off the camera, so please take the kind of photos that you would like to receive.
Hopefully, you can take a peek into a place you've never been!
