Scotland the World Over
You might think that we would *hate* Edinburgh-based website Blipfoto.com, who pipped Bella to top-spot in The Lists definitive guide to The Best Blogs in Scotland. Not a bit of it. As regular readers will know our outlook is characterised by bonhomie and good cheer to all. Blip – which encourages users to create a daily photoblog is launching a call for tens of thousands of photographs based on the saltire flag to be uploaded.
The pictures, which will be collected from St Andrew’s Day on Wednesday, will then be turned frame by frame into a film to be premiered globally on Burns Night 2012.
Each picture must feature the saltire – but that’s where the guidelines end. Joe Tree, the founder of Blip explains: “It was very experimental, but it gave us the spark of an idea, and months later came the concept of Scotland the World Over.”
