click click click your camera

Is your dog/cat/partner/neighbor/child/parent/houseplant/roommate tired of getting their picture taken with your new camera? Two photography-related activies for January popped up this week.

Synchronicity: a project based on pictures taken at the same moment all around the world. Anyone can participate. Your photo must reflect what you were doing at the specified time. The next synchronicity moment is 1st January 00:00:00 Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). For Pacific time-zoners, that's 4:00 pm on 31st December. For other time-zoners, please check your local time compared to GMT. Have your camera ready!

Photogamer: a website-blog-flickr group-facebook group-twitter account which provides a weekly challenge to go out in the world and to fnd interesting photographs related to the challenge. As the name implies, the purpose is to have fun with your camera. After a couple of months' break, the photo games are back on. Bre, Hillary & Co have lined up a new challenge for every day in January. Sounds like the perfect winter muse to prevent a post-holiday coma.
