In Numerical Order
Alright! A new photo game with some new rules. As the name implies, the photos are In Numerical Order. This is inspired by the flickr group of the same name. Essentially, each post is the next number in the order. I’m starting with 1, the next post should be a photo of your bike with the number 2, and the number 2 alone.
1. This is not a tag game. You do not need to locate or photograph the previous number to post the next.
2. There are no boundaries. This is to encourage traveling and suburban mplsbikelove.com members to participate in the game.
3. The number must be “in the wild”; you cannot place the number yourself nor alter existing surroundings to create the number.
4. The number must be intentional and permanent (within reason), which is to say the number must be intended to be the number, and it cannot be written in the dirt or the sand. For example, if the letter “L” is painted such that it appears to be the number “1″, but is intended to be the letter “L” it would not qualify as the number “1″. If some a-hole writes the number 112 in the sand, such that another person could not go there and see the number in the sand, it would not qualify. I understand that by their nature, signs are changed and removed, and that numbers like graffiti are covered, but i think the spirit of the game is clear. The number can be mobile, as on a train car, truck trailer, or license plate.
5. The number cannot be a part of a numerical series, for example: the house number 1542 could not be used for the number 54.
6. The number can be in context with text, such as “Door 21″, but the number must be a designator, so cannot be used inline with text, like “21% of doctors agree”. This is to prevent usage of billboards, advertisements, and the like. Let’s keep it fun and original!
7. Your bike and the number must appear in the photograph.
8. Please host your photo permanently, so that there aren’t breaks in the numerical continuity.
9. Please post the location of your number, preferably with a link to the exact location on a public mapping web site.
10. The number must be an integer comprised of arabic numerals in base 10, represented by the Latin characters 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9. No spelled-out numbers, Roman numerals, decimal places, or numerals from another system.
11. No ordinal numbers: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc. This is after considering that this usage of numbers is really just an abbreviation for their full-word counterparts.
So here we go, with number 1, Webster Open School Door Number 1, 5th St NE, Minneapolis, MN.
