I’ve just sent a little project out into the world :). It’s called pixtories and it’s all about collecting (very) short stories behind people’s photos.
I’m hoping a few people will take part to get the ball rolling. Instructions are here (and if you’re not a Twitterer, don’t worry, just email me your photo & short story to pixtories AT googlemail.com).
It’s based on the idea that everyone has their favourite photos but often the context of a photo – why it’s important or significant – is hidden. It might be a special moment, bring back a certain memory, have personal meaning or just be something you love for some reason. pixtories is about revealing these stories which are limited to 140 characters to help sharpen your storytelling focus! Check it out, let me know what you think and please share around. You can even check out my own entry!
