I got the idea to send a camera through the mail from Kyle Van Horn (and he got it from P22) and decided to try it myself!

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 Masschusetts (all three when I was living in Hawaii) but never heard back.

Wow! I cannot believe all of this attention. I am thinking about how best to get this going in a bigger and better way. If you want to be involved, send me some FlickrMail.

Wow, thank you for all the new contacts, comments, and favorites — I was surprised to see this project resurrected, and I'm glad you like it.

After a few years I gave up the domain name for this project ( because I wasn't doing anything with it and because all of the photos and explanation are better hosted on Flickr, so what you see here is all I have at the moment!

The attention has made me want to pick this up again.
