    Are you sure? Maybe it's taken before the one that follows it... o_O

    Wasn't expecting a lot of success but it was such as glorious day I went out with the camera.

    It's taken a long time to find a #130, and I've looked, trust me. So it was no surprise to me that as soon as I found this one, I found another one 15 minutes later (on a parking meter I've walked past around 10 times).

    Anyway, #130, and the project plods on.

    Lol you still at it :D I thought about you the other week when I saw the number 1 on a house I have long admired. For me that house would be my starting point but seeing as you have already done it I won’t become a copycat. If I do I know where I’ll be starting :) Don

    Yeh still going, if I want to go out with the camera but don't feel inspired this gives me an excuse to keep looking around as I walk. I know sometimes you can get tunnel vision if you look only for one thing, but i find that this project has made me walk places in the city centre I'd never have gone to, looking for more numbers, and seeing other things. I was going to stop at 100, I thought about doing '100 100's' and trying to find a hundred different shots of 100's, but you can only photograph so many hydrant markers before you get bored.

    I wouldn't feel like anyone who did this was copying.

    There are moments of frustration and moments of joy, at just finding a number, and moments of excitement at realising you've found something which might give you a good chance. I saw the shop window with the phones, with prices in the £120's and £140's, and I thought, this might be it finally. It's such a tiny, trivial, unimportant thing, but there was a genuine moment of joy at spotting the iphone. And then a genuine moment of 'of course' at spotting another 130 on a parking meter I've walked past repeatedly.

    Anyway, photographically boring, but as a journey, it's been really fun.
