Collecting Numbers

number 1

 I’ve challenged myself to photograph the positive integers from to 1 to …!

My rules:

  • I can only take a picture of the next number, i.e. even if I see a great “27” I can only snap it once I’ve bagged “26”
  • Each picture must be different from the number before it, i.e. I can’t just go along a row of houses taking pics of the house numbers (that would be too easy)
  • The number must be a number in its own right, not part of another number, i.e. I can’t take 13 from 2013, but C17 would be fine for the number 17
  • The number can be in numeric, written or any other form (my rules, so there!)

Why? Because I can and because it makes me look out for numbers which are all around us.

You can see my number collection here.

It’s surprisingly good fun – with your iPod, iPhone or camera forever in your pocket, why not have a go yourself. Happy Snapping!
