In the past couple of weeks, I’ve started participating in an entertaining little photo scavenger hunt on a site called lookit! I’d love to get some folks from Tumblr to participate, if it sounds like something you’d be interested in.
Every morning, the lookit! staff announce the mission (topic) for the day (notifications via twitter, facebook, and/or email). Using your cameraphone, you then take and submit via email one picture that you think best represents the topic for the day.
You can also log onto the website and rate other peoples’ photos, leave comments, and watch your picture’s rated status as you vie for the “mission winner” badge. There are other badges and commentary awards to be won, too (for example, this picture earned a “Creeper Pic” award before it started getting popular and then took off as the definite mission winner of the day).
It’s not too late to join in the fun for today, either - today’s topic is “Leather”, and I’m sure all you bright & creative tumblr-folken out there can top the highest rated pics so far. So sign up and come play lookit!
