ex machina

the postcard project camera contest! win odin's nikon n50!

for some reason, while lightening the load, i didn't sell my old nikon n50 and i'm too lazy to try and get $50 for it on ebay.

it's a great entry level slr and i have thought maybe that i'd keep it around so that the apprentice could have an old school camera. but instead, i've decided that you can send him a postcard for the postcard project and let odin know why you think you'd be a worthy owner of his camera.

the most creative answer - as judged by myself - will win the camera ( bonus points will be awarded for creative answers on creative postcards ). all entries must be postmarked by may 31st, 2005. the contest is only for an n50 body - lenses are not included.

send entries to:

the postcard project camera contest
c/o eric c snowdeal iv
p.o. box 1514
grand rapids, mi 49501-1514

obviously, you'll want to include your name and address on the postcard, so i know where to send the camera if you win.

i have no idea if anyone will be interested in this, so if you're the only one who sends a postcard, you'll have a pretty good chance of winning it :-)

Darn! I mailed a postcard to Odin yesterday (along with a little Carolina shirt)!!! Ah well, it wasn't that creative anyway ... guess I'd better put on my thinking cap and send another. ;-)

well you might get special consideration because the carolina shirt can be considered creative :-) but if you want to put your thinking cap on, that'd be great too.

Wow, to bad I didn't go to your yard sale. I would have bought it. :) (Nevermind that I live in Indiana.)

"Wow, to bad I didn't go to your yard sale. I would have bought it. :)"

ahhh, i was semantically ambiguous. i didn't sell it in the yardsale because for some reason i didn't put it out for the taking, not that nobody wanted it. you can always send odin a postcard project camera contest postcard :-)

it's a great camera, i just don't see myself going back to film anytime soon and i know myself well enough to know that it'll just sit around for years waiting for the day that'll never arrive when i want to go old school.

"it is hard to be brave," said piglet, sniffing slightly, "when you're only a Very Small Animal." rabbit, who had begun to write very busily, looked up and said: "it is because you are a very small animal that you will be Useful in the adventure before us."

[ about ]

this site chronicles the continuing adventures of my son, odin, who was unexpectedly born on the fourth of july at 25 weeks gestation, weighing 1 pound 7 ounces.

he's quite a fighter and you can always send him a postcard to the most current address listed here if you're inspired by his adventures. see the postcard project/google maps mashup to see a map of the postcards.

if you're new, you can browse the archives to catch up. and don't forget to watch a few movies that i made while we were in the neonatal intensive care unit. or if you want the abridged version and you can find a copy, you can read about his adventures in the november 2005 issue of parents magazine.
