Is it true what they say about eskimos and their expensive story of cinnamon snow?

Is it true that they sail about and eskimos sensory cinnamon snow?

tele-photo tag.

tele-photo tag is similar to the above game of “telephone” but instead of an auditory experience, this one is visual!

as a telephoto camera lens allows you bring the distance closer to you, so does the tele-photo tag game.  in essence we are peering deeper and deeper into the same image.  with each subsequent response photo, we reveal things that we didn’t even know where present in the original!

how to play:
2 players or more.

1.  start with one photo.
player number one takes a photo and shares with player number two.
this photo should have a fairly wide scene with various subjects contained in the image.

2.  response.
player number two responds with an image of his or her own.
this response image must be somehow related to the original photo.
example:  imagine the original image is a wide beach scene with two people sitting under an umbrella in the distance.  the response image could possibly be a photo of a business man walking to work in the rain under an umbrella.

3.  repeat.
now it is player number one’s turn to respond to player number two’s variation on the original image.
example:  player number one now has to use player number two’s business man under an umbrella.  player number one notices a dog on a walk in the background of player number two’s photo and chooses to photograph a dog playing frisbee in a park.  

4.  tag
try to share back and forth as many times as possible for a set period of time.
for the purposes of this assignment, the duration is one week.

5.  enjoy the transformation!
