The 1000km photo project

Latest addition: 2010 picture from Madagascar.
I realized that over the course of the last 16 years I have been visiting several quite different areas of the globe. This made me decide to make a special cross section of the 34000 pictures that I have taken over the years: a set with as special property that any pair of pictures selected from the set are always taken at more than 1000 km distance from each other. The result: 19 pictures, representing 19 completely separate circles of 500 km radius or 14.9 million square kilometers of the earth's surface, under 3%. I still have a long way to go!
I have manually selected these pictures, not always selecting the best picture I had available but preferring pictures that make it possible to recognize where it was taken. Until summer 2006, the pictures were taken with chemical film, printed and scanned on a fladbed scanner.
How many pictures can you use if you try a 1000km photo project yourself? Send me a message! If you point me to a series of pictures you took, I will add a reference on this page.
