Long Shot 2012: See Seattle Through a Different Lens

Earlier today, a brand new Tumblr grabbed my attention: Instagram the World. It’s run by a couple, Nico and Karina, who’ve just taken off on a worldwide journey: 26 countries in 200 days, and they’ll be sharing their adventures every day on Instagram.

That sounds awesome, and I am just the teeniest little bit jealous of their grand adventures. But if you’re not in a position to take off and explore the world through photography — why not explore your own city in the same way?

Long Shot 2012 is a 24-hour event inviting you to follow a route that will take you all over the city, and you’ll be taking photos the whole way. It benefits Photographic Center Northwest — here are more details from them:

LONG SHOT is an event that celebrates photography, creativity, and our greater community, while raising funds for education and outreach programs at Photo Center NW. It is a fun, one day event where photographers hit the streets to capture a theme, community, or subject of their choice. Any image taken between June 1-2, 2012 is eligible for exhibition, and at least one image from each participant will be featured in the LONG SHOT exhibition at Photo Center NW on July 28, 2012. The event is open to everyone, using any camera, anywhere.
