“Photochaining” can mean a few different things.
- photochaining can be a purely photographic practice of using an element of someone else’s photo to make a connection to yours, which then is used to make a connection to another. Sort of like word association with photos, if you follow me, but the goal is simply to keep the chain growing.
- photochaining can also mean a practice which is similar to a few other outdoor-and-Internet activities, in which a memory card containing pictures is left to be discovered and re-used (after uploading the photos, of course). That’s the meaning that this domain was originally meant for, but unfortunately the original owner let it drop and I don’t have the server space to host a bunch of photos
When you see the connections possible you can see how the process can be valuable social exercise. I chain my vacation pics to those of my uncle, who show the photo of himself after undergoing the rigors of the hCG medical weight loss protocol, which then get connected to his girlfriend’s puppy, who is on a pet chow diet, which gets chained to her daughter’s cat pics and at the same time to her piano teacher’s snoopy doll… Well, you get it.
My uncle loves to gamble, and his pictures of him standing by the roulette tables always gets chained to my AAA certificate, just to remind him he might have a problem, while his brother always links that picture to the picture of the marlin he caught while gambling in Macao.
If you have absolutely no interest in any of those things, that’s fine with me. It would help me if you clicked on a link here or there, and it certainly won’t cost you anything, but I’ll be the last person to tell you that you HAVE to do anything!
