I think it's good that we have an own topic for all the organization stuff. feel free to bring your own ideas, thoughts and skills into this project. in the beginning, we have to figure out what best concept is (is tumblr even the best thing?) and then talk about the themes. I guess we can fix the major stuff within a couple of days and then make a deadline for the first couple of themes. I would suggest we start posting may or june, enough time to shot a couple of rolls. oh, we need somebody, who could do a nice banner and design for the blog.

this is the email conversation we did about this tumblr idea. what do you think guys? maybe we pick about 5-10 themes first, everybody shots as many themes as possible and then we start posting it on tumblr. it would be rad if 20 persons would join, so we can have material for 4-6 months before we start. who's down? who got ideas for themes?

"hey man!

I have this idea where we can make a theme based slap tumblr. every participant has to do 3 (5, 7, 10 ... whatever) pictures of the same object/person from the town he's living at or has visited. for example we could do the architecture month in april, maybe even something like "high buildings". on the first day one person makes a post with 3 pics called "highest buildings in ... vancouver". next days another person does the same with berlin, then with helsinki, then with a little town in france that nobody knows etc. after that month we can make another topic, maybe something skate related like "3 skatespots from ... vancouver/berlin/helsinki etc.) or "3 hipsters in ..." I guess this could be a sick idea. if we can get at least 10 slap pals to join there is enough material to make a post every 3 days ... what do you think? we can even have some non slap pals in there, that can contribute.

cheers, matze"

"Hello,
Sounds good to me! For start month April would be perfect. I have some school work this week, but I will get back to you asap, when I'm done with them! This has some real potential to become something truly interesting!

Cheers, Eeli"


id deffinatley be down to participate, whatever the subject  Smiley

I'd certainly be down as well, but I'd possibly have to hold off until summer when I'm on break from school. Definitely a really awesome idea!

Sounds sick, count me in.

i'm up for it.  would it just consist of one tumblr blog and then all the participants have the login info?  or would someone moderate/curate the whole shebang?

pardon me, i have no idea how tumblr works really.

good question! this is something we have to discuss ... maybe we get a slap pals email account for this.

I could cover the small french town/Paris. I leave in two months though. We should get a few subjects announced so people have time to work on a few and save up.

you can cover whatever you like. if you're on a daytrip to le havre you can cover a theme over there Smiley it doesn't have to be a special town or area ... even if there are 2 people living i the same city, it's cool to see different photography styles.

Count me in. I can cover Western Pennsylvania.

Totally down for this!  I don't know how tumblr works either, but I'm into the idea!  I'll be living in Kansas City for good in 19 days.  I'll also be all over Italy for two weeks in May

Shit! I'm kinda excited for this so I'm sure I could set aside some time to start shooting soon. I'm from the Baltimore area so maybe I could shoot some of the dilapitated and abandoned rowhomes that Bodymore is too well known for.

I'd be down, I live in a town in the North West of England but also have two major cities, Manchester and Liverpool half an hour either side of my town so i'd have plenty of material.

wow! I'm impressed how many pals are down for this idea!

tumblr is pretty easy to use and it has some features, where you can set a special amount of posts a day. we figure out what's best.

there were a couple of ideas floating in my head. hopefully you have some more.

"3 tourist pics from ..."; "3 shots of tourists from ..." "3 subway stations from ..."; "3 night shots from ..."; "3 police men from ..."; "3 friends from ..."; "3 skatespots from ..."; "3 trees from ..."; "3 dead animals from ..."; "3 boats from ..."; "3 chinese restaurants from ..."; "3 old/high/famous/regular/abandoned/grey/boring houses from ...". there is way more we can chose ... get the ideas going!

3 new friends you've made, 3 new creations (graffiti/art etc...), 3 "interesting" people (goths, scene, hipsters)

I wouldn't be participating myself, I'm not a Slap Pal, and Someone is already covering Oxford. (Finknoos I think)

I am into this for sure. I can rep Berkeley.

Can we also do a random photos section that aren't specifically from your town or fit any theme? I have some gems from around the world I would like to share, my favorite of which I posted in instaslap - Pakistani military posing with Australian Playboy models. They don't seem to be posting our photos from  that thread so we should take this into our own hands.

I'm psyched on all these ideas. Gonna go out today for a little bit and try to get some shots.

As for more ideas. Oldest spots in your city. Most badass people you know. Rad transportation(bikes/cars/whatever). Water. Reflections.

3 photos of people you live with. Any combination. one each of 3 people, 2 of one and one of the other. photo of your cat. or even self-portrait if you live solo.

this is awesome! 3 broken windows. 3 dead cars. 3 faces. 3 flags. 3 security cameras. 3 ganja buds. 3 record collections...
It will be very cool to see "local" collections that have been acquired throughout the world in one place.Great idea, Matze! 



would this be set up so that each post has a grouping from different places. For instance the heading could be "3 road kill animals" and each participant would post 3 of their images under that one heading, or would each heading be available to a limited amount of participants?
