“This post box on the island of North Uist, Scotland, has nothing to do with the project. It only gets on the web site to demonstrate variable resolution jpegs (courtesy of JWizard). The face of the box is saved at medium resolution: the background at low resolution. I have intentionally over-compressed the background on the full-size image to highlight the technique.
Participants from several countries who belong to the PhotoForum Internet mailing list will take one picture with a disposable camera and mail it to another member on the list. The number of cameras used will depend on the number of participants. At this time there are almost fifty photographers.”
