Announcing … the first #PhotoTimeTrial !

The moment you've all been waiting for …

+Chris Chabot and I are launching the first ever G+ Photo Time Trial! Here's how it works:

We give you five landmarks in San Francisco. You run around SF and take pictures of all them as fast as possible.

There are two categories you can submit to:

Fastest run. You went for speed. How fast did you get to all the landmarks?
Best photos under four hours. You went for quality and speed. As long as the photos were taken with the same four-hour window, the best entire album wins. (Judges TBA!)

How do I submit?

Put all five of your photos and a picture of yourself with a timer into an album (check out mine in this post for an example). Mark it with the #tag #PhotoTimeTrial , and the category you're competing in [you can compete in both!]

How does the timing work? Does it matter what order I get to the landmarks?

Nope! The timer starts from the first photo you take and ends with the last photo you take. You can get to the landmarks in any order.

When's the deadline?

One month from today: January 16, 2013.

Okay okay - tell me the landmarks!

Bay Bridge
Golden Gate Bridge
TransAmerica Building
SF City Hall
Ferry Building

Ready? On your mark … get set … GO!

(Other cities … we love you too! We just don't live there. ^^ Let me know if you want to launch your own #PhotoTimeTrial !)

And: Chris and I did ours in 52 minutes and 29 seconds last night at 2am. We figured we'd give you all some hope for the speed run. ;) Also, despite being the organizers of this contest and choosing the landmarks, we apparently didn't know where SF City Hall was.

Such an interesting idea! When I get back in January I coming in hot on this :)
 
Totally need to do this.  Will probably have to go the late at night route, but that would be incredibly interesting none-the-less.  Maybe I'll do it after work one day.
