Cameramail: sending disposable cams through the post with a note asking posties to take pix

Matthew McVickar designs these Cameramail packages with disposable film-cameras taped to their front and a note exhorting posties to take pictures of themselves and environs as the package passes through their custody.

The first camera traveled from Cape Cod, Massachusetts to Honolulu, Hawaii, collecting a total of seven pictures on its way. I couldn't have hoped for a better set of photos! The Postal Service sure does move fast.

I ended up trying three more cameramail packages to Washington, to Japan, and to Massachusetts (all three when I was living in Hawaii) but never heard back.
