By the way, I should make clear, she never posts photos of food.

Check out her profile:

Original photo here.

Day 18

A family different from yours – 15 points

The baby is Flick, she’s not theirs. They were babynapping I think. It’s a common problem in churches I find.

Day 17

Day 15

With Someone Famous – 30 points

Day 14

Secret – 10 points

When my parents re-did their kitchen in 2007 I found a secret drawer. I wondered how long it would take them to find it. I wrote that note and left it in the drawer. Prophetically finding the secret drawer also got you 10 points. Also like the scavenger hunt winning 10 points won you nothing, you just knew you were a winner.

Day 13

Reproduce a photo on Facebook – 10 points

This is the photo we were reproducing.

Day 12

At the Movies – 10 points

In Church – 10 points

Day 8

Moving Picture (Click the photo to see it move) – 5 points

I know it’s low in points, but high in fun. And this is all about fun right?

Day 7

You in a different city from the one you were in on March 1st – 25 points


Just as a side note, it was rather a mission to get this photo. I got totally drenched walking from the city centre to the headland, and I got quite a few looks as I kept trying different poses in front of the camera.

On another note, I’m not sure how I feel about the processing of this photo, but I’m fiddling with Lightroom, and that is fun.

Day 6

Sunrise – 12 points

Day 5

Geocache – 20 points

Props to Howie for the idea of the page.

  1. Day 3 is hilarious! And a great photo to boot!

  2. Dear Tom,
    Could you please put your photos in reverse chronological order? Scrolling loses the fun factor after photo 3, and by day 21 I probably won’t bother.

  3. (BTW the “day 21” remark isn’t really true. I will probably still scroll down, but won’t enjoy your photos as much because I will be thinking, “I would be enjoying this more if I didn’t have to scroll down so far. If only Tom had put his photos in reverse chronological order.” It’s all about the user experience. So the webby people tell me.)

  4. I agree with Lesley. Pretty please.

  5. Done.

  6. Thankyou!

  7. Thank you!
