52 weeks finale

Before starting up the next weekly photo collaboration, I thought I'd better finish up the last one. I had always meant to post a final bit about the 52 weeks project, and now, a mere three months behind schedule, I'm doing it.

The project started out as a fun way to journal and juxtapose the lives of two friends living miles apart for one year. It became a bit more than that, though, as week after week our images seemed to combine and correspond in the most pleasing (and perfect) ways (see 13/5225/52 and 28/52 for starters). I started really looking forward to posting my photo each week and checking Julie's to see if we had unknowingly pulled off a cohesive combo. I think we were both surprised and pleased to see each week's results, and I'm terribly delighted by the stories that seem to be lurking within each combination.

1/52 - 4/52

5/52 - 8/52

9/52 - 12/52

13/52 - 16/52

17/52 - 20/52

21/52 - 24/52

25/52 - 28/52

29/52 - 32/52

33/52 - 36/52

37/52 - 40/52

41/52 - 44/52

45/52 - 48/52

49/52 - 52/52

two friends
an ocean apart
post one photo a week
with no rules or themes
and no idea what the other is up to.
in a year we'll see.
now we know.

Skumps! More about the new collaborative series coming up soon!

What a cool idea Caroline. My best friend lives a million miles away...wish we'd thought of something like this!

Julie said...

So many of these that I love! What a good documentation of the year-and what fine matches we had!

Andrea said...
