Rainy Alley [Photobomb] - Fort Street, Auckland

Over the last three weeks I’ve printed off almost 500 copies of the photos I’ve taken since I started on my photography journey in June. 

That’s 500 prints of different sizes I’ve got lying around in my room doing absolutely nothing other than collecting dust. So I thought what the heck, why not put those prints to good use and share them with as many people as I can?

Today I went around the Auckland CBD sticking the photos up where I originally took them, on the back of each photo is a little message explaining to people that it’s totally ok to take the photo home with them.

The five I put up today:

The photos are inside of cheap frames from The Warehouse. The backs are signed, and each is numbered to show how many of those prints I’ve made so far.

What I hope will happen is people will see the photos on the walls and share in that memory with me. Some won’t enjoy it, others will vandalise it, the vast majority will ignore it - but that’s all ok, because this was incredibly fun to do.

I’ve only put up five today, but I’ll be putting up more over the next coming weeks. If you do see one let me know, maybe take a photo with it and send it in, or if you like it take it home and share the idea.

So what do you think of my little idea to share my photos of Auckland with Aucklanders?

UPDATE: 3 out of the 5 photos have been taken, I know this because I’ve been sent thank you emails from the people who’ve found them. AWESOME!
