    Contre wanted a virtual vacation, I am impatient and excitable. Because of this I proposed a second camera was launched into the unknown. Contre was happy enough for me to do this. Thus, this thread is born.

    If you want to participate, please submit your name. You are submitting your name to have a camera dispatched to your location from another CFCer, you will take a photo of anything you like (suitable for CFC) and then post in onto the next poster until it returns to myself! I will then upload all the photos here.

    Included with the camera will be a small notebook to write notes about the picture you took and why you took it. It may also be used for just about anything else you'd like to write to others. If you so choose, you may also send a small trinket of where you're from to the next poster. This is entirely up to you. I think I shall send Takhisis a middle finger...

    SACATWTFCFTTFA: It's like Sacagawea if Contre was Lewis and Clark.

    All right, I'll jump in on this too.

    Godwynn has the camera now.

    In other news, I'm locking my bedroom door, as he has threatened to photograph me while I'm asleep.

    Don't know if you're wanting different people than are participating in Contre's camera or not, but if you're willing to accept participation in both, I'd love to be involved!

    I'm in. If I might be so bold as to give recommendations... if you have more users sign up than you have picture slots, bias in favour of those who aren't getting my camera.

    cool idea. I didn't hear about the first thread, or first one, but I'm up for this one.

    If it is international, just tell me how to send it international mail (I have no idea), and I'm in. I live in Las Vegas. I think I can think of something off the beaten path.

    Yeah, that's a good idea. I'll drop out to make room for a round the world newbie.

    I can fill in if you need me to, but to be honest I'm not sure what I could get that's different from contre's. I live in a beach town. I only have so much to work with.

    Also, I don't know if this has been mentioned in the other thread, but I would love to see some of these pictures.
