ABCD - Will You Take Part?

From Gary France's blog USA Tour on a Harley Davidson, an invitation:

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.

I think that I'll actually be home that day. If I'm in Barrow, there are no centerlines on any of the roads. Does that mean I would be disqualified? Hopefully, the bike will be back together by then...


  1. RichardM:

    seeing that you are in Alaska, "the last frontier" where there are more planes than cars . . . do you actually have any roads wide enough to paint lines in the centre ?

  2. bobskoot:
    We do have a few. We even have some with two lanes in each direction!

    If I'm in Barrow again at the end of the month, the only pavement with painted lines is the airport runway. They would probably deny my request to take a picture...


    I'm looking forward to seeing the entries and thank you for visiting.
