ABCD – A Blogger’s Centerline Day

1 May

A while back, I told you about A Bloggers Centerline Day, which was to take place on Sunday 1st May 2011.

Well, today is May 1st!

The goal was to inspire as many bloggers as possible to go outside and take a photograph of themselves on this day, anywhere in the world.

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 Gary France’s Blog and include in that comment the address of your own blog post containing your own picture.

When I first decided to participate, I figured it would be easy. I’m usually in the country on Sundays. But this Sunday was different. This Sunday I was in Lower Manhattan of all places. I spent the weekend in New York City with my daughters, Shannon and Amy. I’m pretty sure the road I am standing on is Fulton Street at the intersection with Gold Street. What I did not realize when I posed is that’s One World Trade Center under construction in the background.

  1. Was just there a few weeks ago – can’t imagine getting a centre line shot in NYC traffic – it was a chore here in the middle of nowhere. Fun. Well done.

  3. Dear ToadMama:

    What a great picture! What great day!

    I love the background… And from the ashes, rises the new phoenix, quite literally. The last time I was at this site, it was still smoking, and the refrigerator turcks were still parked on the street corners.

    Sincerely,
