Hello all of you 19 followers and maybe a few other people,
There is something I would like you to ask. I got inspired by a text from a 'magazine' I bought in Germany a little while ago, it's called rosebud:

"Imagine. One day you receive an envelope that contains a book.
You are curious.
You discover a secret.
A roll of film is hidden in a small hole in the middle of the book.
The piece of paper around the film roll reads:
'Have this film developed within the next few days. You will discover essential information about the fourth issue of +rosebud - "ACTION". The machine has been set in motion. There is not much time left. But you can still intervene."

When I read this, I thought: yeah, it would be cool to get a roll of film in the mail, develop it without knowing what will come out of it and having your own little photopresent.
And I thought, why not do something like this? It would be like having a penpal, but with pictures. A picturepenpall.

With this project I think it would be nice if I could get at least 4 people or so and we could all shoot a roll of film (it can be with a disposable camera as well) and then send it to each other. Your pictures don't have to be amazingly pretty, they can be of things you like, people you like, pretty places, etc etc.

If you're interested in joining in, please let me know in a comment :).

Lots of love, Bobby


  1. Ha, leuk idee zeg! Ik zag het ook op je tumblr maar hier reageren is makkelijker. Het lijkt me zeker leuk om mee te doen :) mijn analoge camera ligt al een tijdje te verstoffen dus dit zou een goed excuus zijn om hem weer te voorschijn te halen ;)

  2. I'm interested!! that's a great idea!

  3. Interested.

    Ik hou van magie van filmrolletjes, zelfs als het van jezelf is is het nog steeds een klein kado.

  4. Wow! That's a completely awesome idea :)

  5. ja echt zoooo leuk! ik doe het toevallig al met iemand uit polen! maar ik moet zelf nog maken, en het rolletje ontvangen! te exciting! maar het lijkt me echt leuk om het vaker met mensen te doen!

  6. wait. Did I have to say I'm interested? I'm interested ! :D

  7. Mmm, volgens mij kan je die enkel zelf verwijderen. Heb mail verstuurd.

    Let the games begin.

  8. I would love to do this! I live in Australia so it would be fun posting it all the way to the other side of the world!
