Anna Zachou's bob story!

You think that Bob is a dull boring guy? Well not my Bob!

My Bob is a charmer. When he enters a room he becomes the center of attention. Even ppl who are shy with cameras they want a picture with him and they keep on asking about him even on days he feels he needs to spend sometime alone away from lights.

I dont know what is the story behind Bob. He never shares. But it doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is to go to new places meet new ppl take fresh shots. No he is not arrogant he is just thirsty to continue his trip to see and learn more and who knows maybe feel something one day. I'm just happy i was part of it.

Thank you Bob.

bob's first exhibition!!

Wow! well that was exciting! bob's first exhibition was a bit of a whirlwind, hence my blog post about it being two weeks late! we were not really planning to hold exhibitions this early into the project, but it worked out really well, with bob making an appearance in the BBC newsroom and local press!!!! (he is a better TV personality than i am it turns out!)

We only had a week to prepare so we were scouring the charity shops for tacky golden frames while i was busily threading a bob map and Jake printed polaroids all night! (it was fairly manic! and now my house is full of horrible picture frames) Jake also made feedback cards so visitors could tick the photos they liked just like facebook! (feedback to follow!)

Everyone was blown away by the scale of the project and keen to join! there were 70 bobs at the gallery for visitors to take and after one day they were all gone so we are expecting an influx of local photos! The photos looked amazing framed and properly presented it is really great to see how much amazing work there is already! We will definitely be having more exhibitions in the future and we are talking with the Wobbly Bridge about a larger scale Exhibition Soon!

Jake was armed with his Diana for the whole night so there are some great photos from the opening night have a look!

Jake and i would like to thank the Wobblybridge Gallery, Redbox Cameras and popasylum!! thanks!

Bob news!!

Hello all, sorry we have been a bit lax on the blog recently. Things have been pretty busy, bob's first exhibition was a great success and around 170 new bobs have gone out into the world! but there will be plenty more information about that soon. The exciting news of the day is that bob's blog is changing!! From now on members of the "have you seen bob?" community will be submiting their bob adventures for your enjoyment so if you have had a bob adventure get writing and mail your submissions to and we will feature you!! To start things off please enjoy Danielle Dillahunt Elkin's bob adventure in Southern California!!

Bob's Southern Californian Adventure by Danielle Dillahunt Elkin

Bob is very excited about being in Southern California although he is a little upset that he has not yet run into Angelina Jolie. He is ever hopeful.

I typically photograph Bob using my Holga 135. Holgas have lots of available accessories such as a wide angle lens, colored filters, soft focused colored filters, and a colorsplash flash. I break out of all these when taking photos of Bob. Bob, being an artistic guy himself, likes it that way.

Bob's first photo shoot was in the Old Town area of my city of Camarillo California. Camarillo is a small town north of Los Angeles with a very small and very quaint Old town section. I captured Bob taking in the local sites, window shopping, and generally soaking in the local color. With Old Town being about a mile long give or take, the photo shoot went rather quickly.

Bob's next trip was to Ventura beach with Ventura California being a small but very cool beach town also north of Los Angeles. Bob spent the day eating at a great 50s diner, going antiquing, and then going for a nice walk along the beach. I used my colorsplash camera for this photo shoot so no double exposures but some cool light effects photos were taken in the 50s diner.

Next Bob took a drive with me up the coast to Northern California. There he came along on a hiking trip. Part of the hike passed a farm where Bob narrowly escaped a potentially dangerous incident with a goat. Phew! Having survived the Goat Incident, Bob made it all the way up the hill to take in the glorious view of Northern California from up on high. I switched to b&w film for the drive back. We periodically stopped during the drive to give Bob a chance to stretch his legs and check out one particularly scenic beach. Here Bob hiked in the hills above the beach before heading down to check out the rocky shore. Although the water was cold that day, Bob made a run for the water and spent the rest of the car trip wrapped in blanket. You know, I had warned him . . .

This week Bob went to Santa Monica to check out the Santa Monica mall (hoping to see Angelina Jolie) and also to check out the world famous pier. He was photographed using colored flashes and colored filters and generally had a great time. He discovered he doesn't really like shopping that much as it was rather difficult finding items in his size. As usual he preferred the walk along the beach and of course taking in the sites of the pier. . .
