The Places We'll Go: A 52 Week Project

Step by step, mile by mile,

We want to see everything that makes you smile.

Put Picaboo in your pocket; take us wherever you may go,

Whether it be to your backyard or Rome.

Bring your camera along,

Share your journey with us all year long.

Let’s make memories of 2013,

And learn some new photography techniques.

At the end of it all, you’ll have captured 52 weeks

And a photo journal of your year, each one of yours unique.

This project will not only give you the opportunity to make memories of 2013 with a beautiful photo book of your weekly photos. You will also have the opportunity to get to know other Picaboo fans and build a community with new friends across the globe. (Plus, it’s going to be so much fun!)

RSVP now and start uploading your pictures today!
