Oh hi Mr. Postman, would you like to take a few pictures for me on your way please?

Get inspired by Matthew McVickar’s cameramail project. He packed up a disposable camera with some instructions for the mail men/women to take pictures with it along the way!
Matthew let the camera travel from Cape Cod, Massachusetts to Honolulu, Hawaii. It collected seven pictures of the mail carriers on the way.

What do you say? Pretty neat idea, huh?

You can find all the pictures from Matthew here

And here you find some tips if you want to do this yourself

    Such a fun idea!! I did this a few years ago, mailed from Canada to Singapore. (Around half of the photos worked.) It arrived at my friend's house packaged in bubble wrap a postage worker added along the way to protect it :D
