ABCD – Will You Take Part? Maybe you would like to join in with this….. A Bloggers Centerline Day, or ABCD, will take place on Sunday 1st May 2011. The plan is to inspire as many bloggers as possible to go outside and take a photograph of themselves on this day, wherever they are in the world.

The photo can be creative, arty, contain more than one person, be in any type of location and can contain anything else you like. It must however contain the centerline of a road and at least part of you, the blogger.

There are 5 rules…. Rule 1 – the picture must be taken on 1st May 2011. Rule 2 – the picture must be of yourself, and you must be a person that publishes a blog. You can include whatever else you like in the picture, including other people if you wish. Rule 3 – the picture must include the centerline of a road. Rule 4 – you should publish the picture on your blog on 1st May 2011, along with a few words about the picture and why you chose that location or pose. Rule 5 – when you have posted the picture on your own blog, put a comment on http://garysusatour.blogspot.com/2011/04/abcd-will-you-take-part.html and include in that comment the address of your own blog post containing your own picture. Gary France will then pick his favourite photos and publish these as being the winners.

There will be a prize of $100 awarded to the overall single winner, as chosen by Gary. In order to get this event known as widely as possible, please copy and paste this posting onto your own blog, including the title. Please do that today! As a reminder to yourself to take the photo and post it, put an entry into your diary for 1st May 2011. Let’s see if we can get as any people to join in as possible. Posted by Gary France

  1. What a great idea! Do you mind if I re-blog this?

  2. NO! Gary France would be most pleased to have this blogged all around the world! Please repost!

  3. Just saw this on Theresa’s blog! Can’t wait to see your photo too!

  4. A very intriguing idea. Thanks for passing it on.
    Wowowowowowow! That photo at the top of the page is incredible. I tried something similar on my scooter once (okay, more than once) and failed miserably. The photograph here has captured the feeling of being on a bike so realistically, so magnificently. I can feel the motion and the wind; I can feel the exhilartion, the sense of freedom and the awe at the breathtaking surroundings.
    I’ll say it again: Wowowowowowowow.

    • YOU dear sir, have flattered me! Thank you for coming and saying this! I’m so excited regarding this idea and the efforts of the bloggers! Thank you 🙂

  5. Another nice photo you’ve taken. I plan on participating in ABCD as well. I’ve posted it on my web blog also. Sounds like a good idea. I can’t wait to see all the photos from who knows where?

  6. I just found Gary’s post and re-blogged as well!! Great idea!

  7. I would love to do this– except I don’t want my face in cyberspace, and my street has no line in the centre. Can I take a picture of my back in the middle of the street?

    • Yes! Your back is fine! No need to send your facial image out here! Even if all you want to send out is your boot…you can do that too! Go anywhere you’d like to for the image. I am going to go to an area that reflects my home town and shot the image. Yes…I will be stopping traffic to get it too. (large town) I don’t care…be pissed at me…(cage drivers)…. that’s life in the city!

  8. Thanks for reposting this on your blog! Also, thanks for helping your readers with their questions about the competition – backs, boots, indeed fingernails, hair extensions or shoulders are all fine, as long as there is a centerline as well. Sunday is nearly here, so I am looking forward to seeing what pictures everyone takes!
