Did you ever see the story of the Photographer who follows his girlfriend around the world, holding her hand? It was a beautiful series of pictures that broke in the news during 2013 and gains re-exposure every now and again when a batch more photos come to light. Murad Osmann (the photographer) has an Instagram that follows their travels and photographs them spectacularly.
I always feel so jealous when I see these type of things. People are so clever when they have the forethought to take these type of pictures and then continue to do so over a period of time.
Then you get the people who re-create the “then” pictures, with a “now” picture. These have been in the news a lot over the last few years too. Loads and loads of people have done them and I’m sure will continue to do so. The Luxton Brothers have a Tumblr completely dedicated to theirs.
When the Ice Bucket Challenge was launched for charity last year, it took off in a big way. Everyone got behind the idea of videoing themselves having a bucket of ice thrown over their heads (and of course donating to charity too). I personally took the Ice Bucket Challenge, as did my partner and two children. It’s a lot of fun to know we were part of a campaign that ended up so big!
Now, this summer, you can be part of a big campaign too! Allianz have launched a project called Pass Around the World and it could be a lot of fun to get involved with!
So what are you waiting for? Get your family and friends together and make a great video to upload. Be part of a great campaign that brings together all types of people. I’m definitely going to get the girls down to the park and making their passes!
