The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #176 - Camera Obscura

11.28.12

One or more persons during a certain period drop their usual motives for movement and action, their relations,
their work and leisure activities, and let themselves be drawn by the attractions of the terrain and the
encounters they find there.

It's a bike ride.

Started by user nathansnider and user theroyalacademy.

It meets every Wednesday at 8:30pm at California Donuts #21.
We ride at 9pm.
We'll endeavor to return before the last red line trains (around midnight).

On the fourth year of this bike ride, you might expect:
- more inconvenient passageways
- more full moon picnics
- perhaps more "cover" versions of other people's rides, performed with amateurish enthusiasm
- certainly more amateurish enthusiasm
- disorientation
- reorientation
- pool halls
- bowling alleys
- dance parties
- karaoke
- imaginary histories
- scavenging for fun and sustenance
- more geocaching
- more oblique strategies
- more Oulipian constraints
- traffic median tea parties

Furthermore:
- A medium pace (maybe not for beginners; certainly not a hustle)
- We're not in a rush; we don't need to run every light.
- Maybe some distance; maybe some hills
- Victory donuts!

Camera Obscura



The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time #176:

CAMERA OBSCURA

This week, we are doing what we have done before when the ride leader is unable to ride. We will have a
scavenger hunt!*

But of course, we here at The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time are less about
collecting things and more about collecting experiences. Take only footprints; leave only memories! We think
that's how it goes. But anyway, the point we should emphasize here is that you should try to BRING A DIGITAL
CAMERA!**

This is, we'll admit, a bit techocentric, as people through the ages have developed a wide variety of methods to
faithfully record images of their experiences. Impressions in clay, rubbings with crayon and butcher paper,
pinholes and large darkened rooms and so on... Even the bees, with their little dances, are able to convey their
experiences to one another after the fact.

However, if only for the ease of judging, we must impose some standards. Much as we would welcome the sight
of our riders hauling around their own casting clay, darkened rooms or rolls of butcher paper to record their
experiences, we are limiting acceptable entries to digital photos***.

We may also have a couple of loaner cameras available, for anyone who might be deterred by that requirement.
We will be breaking into teams, so no one will be left out.

*Unless it rains, in which case we will do a different thing that we have done before by going to the bowling alley
instead.

**Or a camera phone capable of taking decent photos in the dark.

***Or Polaroids, if you've got a lot of film to burn. Also bees. If you can record your experience entirely using
bees, you will get full points.

Talk, talk, talk...
