PhonographCylinder, a video creator, edits pieces of historical footage together to create a spectacular sense of time travel. This footage is from the late nineteenth century, a time of huge leaps in motion photography and a few years beyond the past setting of my novel. Pure inspiration to hang my final scenes on. Check out his other historical subjects, from the 1906 San Francisco earthquake to the 1900 Paris World's Fair.
Remember the September 16th time travel invitation? As the deadline approaches, I'm sad to say that while the Day's Inn is still serving complimentary coffee, the invitation has been revoked. Either the movement went underground, the interviews didn't net any potential candidates or the leader checked into someplace with worse conditions than stains on the mattress and Bob Ross-style paintings. Alas, I cannot even rekindle the moment, as the presentation has been removed from YouTube. For all disappointed Vortex readers, I offer up a challenge...
Chad Darnell's project: 12 of 12. It's a viral photo sharing project-12 images on the 12th day of every month. Link to August's 12 of 12 and the rules:
1) ALL PHOTOS MUST BE TAKEN ON THE 12TH OF EACH MONTH.
2) After you post your pictures onto a webpage of your choice (Livejournal, typepad, MySpace, Flickr, etc...) please post the TIME, LOCATION, and A SMALL COMMENT in the pic.
3) You own the rights to all of your pictures. The idea "12 of 12" is mine. While credit is not necessary, please don't credit someone else with the idea.
4) The original concept was at least one body part in the picture. That idea was slowly faded away. The important part is that it are 12 pics.
5) When referring to the project, please refer to it as "12 OF 12" - not "12 ON 12."
6) Once completed, please e-mail or post the PERMALINK of the post AND the city and stateand country of WHERE THE PICTURES WERE TAKEN. (If you are on vacation, it's where the pics were taken.) or city
(The permalink is the link to the ENTRY of your page. If you just send me your website, I have to track it down. By listing the permalink, it helps for people to go back and view your previous 12 of 12 entries from previous months.)
ANYONE is welcome to join in, even if you've never done it before! I hope you will.
-CI'll be joining in this Friday the 12th and hope you will, too. Until then, know I appreciate each one of you, faithful and occasional, visitors. Thank you for sharing part of your day with me here.
