That Flickr game, part 2

mosaic5190536.jpg

1. Oslo, 2. Norway, 3. Jugend villa, 4. Eclectic, 5. London, 6. Scotland, 7. Sofa, 8. Wild Garden, 9. Dandelion, 10. Cardiff Castle, 11. Kristiansund, 12. Living Room

I suppose they could go on forever, really…

 The concept:
a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker.

The Questions:
1. name of birth place
2. country where you live
3. favorite kind of house to live in
4. one word to describe your style of decorating
5. favorite town for a city-trip
6. favorite country for a holiday
7. favorite piece of furniture
8. favorite kind of garden
9. favorite flower
10. a historic place you visited and liked very much
11. where would you move to if you had to?
12. favorite room in your house

Number 11… I have no idea whether I’d actually like living i Kristiansund – I haven’t even been there. However, there isn’t really anywhere else I’d like to live, and at least it’s reasonably close to Trondheim ;) Good thing I don’t have to move, really…

That flickr meme

1. “Ragnhild”, 2. Spagetti Carbonara, 3. Ringve, 4. Rainbow, 5. Denzel Washington, 6. Single Malt Whisky, 7. Galapagos, 8. Death by Chocolate, 9. Librarian, 10. Oda, 11. Happy, 12. Mirthful

My high school is a bit of a cheat, but then how do you translate high school into Norwegian? I went with where I studied whan I was 16-17, which seems about right, no? And calling it a celebrity crush is a bit of an overstatement, but I think he tops my personal hot looking celebrity list. Also, 11. and 12. should really be the same word, but that would be boring, so I went with happy on 11.

Seen last at August Street, this is what to do:

a. Type your answer to each of the questions below into Flickr Search.
b. Using only the first page, pick an image.
c. Copy and paste each of the URLs for the images into fd’s mosaic maker.

1. What is your first name?
2. What is your favorite food?
3. What high school did you go to?
4. What is your favorite color?
5. Who is your celebrity crush?
6. Favorite drink?
7. Dream vacation?
8. Favorite dessert?
9. What you want to be when you grow up?
10. What do you love most in life?
11. One Word to describe you.
12. Your flickr name

All together now

Aaaaaaw.

Wonderful!

Of apostrophes and other animals

Meg wrote a fantastic entry recently entitled Malapostrophication, crap marketing agencies, and why its they’re fault you’re business look’s dumb. Just in case you don’t go through my blogroll every day, you know.

I must remember to get my camera out more often when I see signs like that. I don’t seem to have any malapostrophication examples uploaded to Flickr, so you’ll have to make do with the one on the right as an illustration for now.

I need another project

…like a hole in the head. However, I’ve just joined the 365 days group on Flickr – following Tone’s example. At the very least it should be a useful reminder to make sure I’m in the frame occasionally – I take tons of pictures of Oda, of course, but it wouldn’t hurt to remember the self-timer every now and again.

So, here’s day 1:

Day 1 - Lazing

We’ll see how it goes…
