It’s time for an N-N-1

NN1 are picture stories.

In Norm’s words, it is an opportunity to see and read what different people, in different parts of the world, are doing at the same time on a day, at a specific time.

I stumbled upon a NN1 last year at The Girl Next Door when she did a 3-3-1.

Three people, three places, one time,’ that is – three people living in three different places click a picture at the same time of the day, agreed upon beforehand. These pictures (along with a short introduction to them) would show just how different the lives of people can be, in spite of existing in the same world at the same time.

which led me to Norm’s blog And then NN1 happened,

n number of people, living in n different places, click a picture at the same time of the day and share

In the meanwhile they have had 2-2-1, 4-4-1, 5-5-1, 7-7-1.. with each post there were more participants, more pictures, more places and more picture stories to share. Kudos to Norm and Cupitonians to have started it all.

It has been quite a while since the last NN1, why not have one, says Norm as he reminded me in a email last week. We begin..

How is it done?

  • We decide on a date and time.
  • Each of us then clicks a picture, add a little note to it making it a picture tale
  • then you find my email id/twitter handle/phone number, and send it across to me.
  • Why me? because this time round, I’m hosting the show 🙂

What next?

  • I’ll compile the photos and write-ups into a post
  • email the link to everyone who participated
  • after which you can reblog to share and spread the word, the fun we had in participating
  • somebody else takes up the hosting challenge
  • and NN1 gets rolling again 🙂

How to participate?

  • Comment on this post asap, with your affirmation, doubts, ideas  or just say a hello..
  • You can also email me at with your questions or ask me over whatsapp.
  • I can send you a reminder mail/message before the d day, so we do not forget that we need to be ready, awake and click.

The time and date!

  • Will let you now soon. watch this space for details!

Who’s in then? Spreading love through pictures

Happy Valentine’s everyone.. Pins

    Shall we, then.

    Coming Saturday, 25 February 2017, 6 pm

    at sun down and the night coming up, the lights inside the homes and fires beginning to burn will bring out great pictures, contrasts, reflections and colours.

    Also it happens to be one of my favourite hours of the day.

    Thank you for all the interest and response. Will send a reminder email on Saturday morning so that we show up with pictures at the appointed hour.

    Cya soon, via email. Save the date, the time.
