The Amazing Flickrace

I'm excited!


Amazing Flickrace
Originally uploaded by figuromo.



Tomorrow morning Morgan and myself, and about 40 other local photographers, are taking part in the inaugural Amazing Flickrace. The rules are a little different; relationship meltdowns, calling non-English speakers "stupid" and ritual money counting aren't included. Sadly, neither will we get to see Phil. No turtleneck and no substantial trouser bulge. Sadly. I'm kind of hoping for a food challenge though...

Our version is basically a photographic treasure hunt. Many of the details are still secret, like the nature of the "challenges", but if you go here you can read the rules (at the start of the discussion thread). What started as a fun little event for the Sydney Photobloggers has turned into something much bigger, thanks to the hard work of the organisers. Not only have the numbers grown enormously, but a bunch of corporate sponsors have come on board to provide prizes.

It should be fun, the teams are being picked at random and we all have to work together to finish the challenges, even though only one person can take the photo required. Should be a fun way to meet new people.

Just pray I don't get an asshole.

Not a lot of koalas in the city centre I'm afraid boys... although there are, you know, kangaroos... and all the fountains are likely to have crocodiles...

I'll see what I can do.
