Camera #051511

Camera #051511 will be released soon. It was named in honor of the 2011 graduates from the University of Rochester. It's currently exam week for them so I'm leaving this camera in the library. This time, I put the camera in a bag with a couple dozen slips of paper with my email address, address, and URL for the blog. I'm hoping this will increase the chances of the camera coming back.

Here's a picture of the camera before its release:

Camera #21818

A friend of mine started and released her own camera a couple weeks ago. She left it in the "Beers of the World" section of the Pittsford Wegmans while making her first 6-pack purchase as a legal adult.

The number was chosen because the camera was released on 8/18, my friend's 21st birthday.

Good luck #21818!

Edit: I forgot (months later I remembered) that I took this picture of camera #21818's release:

Camera #210300

Camera #210300 was mailed to a friend of mine the other day. He intends on taking it to Burning Man to release the camera—which isn't for another month or so.

The number 210300 was chosen because the price of a ticket to Burning Man this year ranged from $210-300.

Good luck #210300!

Camera #431776

My third camera was put into a Geocache called Blazing Plane. I have high hopes for this one since it went into a community that likes doing things like this.

The number was chosen from the first 3 digits of the longitude followed by the first 3 digits of the latitude of the cache when in decimal form. In the future, I'll use the last 3 digits since many of the caches in my area will have the same first 3 digits.

Good luck #431776!

Camera #078112

A second camera was released last night. I gave this one to another friend while in Gleason at the University of Rochester.

The number was chosen because I released the camera on 7/8 in Gleason, which for some reason has the number 112 written on the emergency exit.

Good luck #078112!

Camera #450442

The first camera has been released into the wild! Number 450442 was given to a friend of mine in Rochester who helped me start this project.

I chose this number because I gave the camera to my friend in our class EDU 442 which starts at 4:50 p.m.

Good luck to Camera #450442!
