Friday Photo 39: Cartoon Cuisine

Haven’t done one of these for a while, so here’s a Friday Photo post with a little difference.

The brilliantly creative team over at Love Jozi have teamed up with Gauteng Tourism to create A Postcard a Day from Gauteng. Primarily developed for mobile devices, the app delivers a unique perspective of Gauteng to users in the form of a daily digital postcard.

As the site blurb says “365 inspirational postcard images of Gauteng – as captured by our best photographers, designers, artists and illustrators (and, maybe, you) – delivered to your device, every day, for free.”

I’ve made a couple of submissions to the project (under the “and maybe you” heading), and am honoured and somewhat surprised to say that both have been used. The first, Scene from a Dream, appeared on 12 November. (There’s a snapshot of it here if you’re curious.) The second, Cartoon Cuisine, is being used as the Postcard for today. Which makes it the perfect candidate for my Friday Photo post.

The dedicated A Postcard a Day from Gauteng app is available for free for Apple, Android and Blackberry devices – links to all the appropriate app marketplaces are below. Or you can visit the web site to see each days’ postcard, and also to Submit Your Own Postcard contribution for consideration.

(If you do submit something, let us know in the Comments below so that we can keep any eye for it.)
