Saturday Scenes

You are my Sunshine

Filed under: #satscene —— Sylvia @ 22:21

It’s another great set of Saturday Scenes! I want a SatScene map, showing all the locations as we move through the timezones starting off in Australia and ending up in Hawaii. I don’t suppose anyone knows anyone knows anyone in Tonga who could add a photo? :D

Regardless of location and season, it seems to me that it was sunny for everyone who submitted a photograph last Saturday.

I think I’ll start posting that as another little-known benefit of taking part – SatSceners get more sun than the average person!

Don’t believe me? Take a look:

On This Day…

Serious on a Saturday

Filed under: #satscene —— Sylvia @ 12:00

April without rain is like a SatScenes without nagging. Last weekend was very quiet but it gives us a chance to focus on the hardcore – the dedicated – the serious submitters.

The resulting photograph collection from last Saturday is certainly eclectic – I think it is actually one of our most interesting sets. It also proves that SatSceners are pretty serious about their leisure time.

Make sure to say hello to the submitters:

We want to see your Saturday Scenes. All you have to do is follow this quick list:

  1. Take a photograph on a Saturday
  2. Upload the photograph
  3. Send a tweet to @SatScenes with the url

You can put the photograph anywhere you want. We’ll host a local thumbnail which links to your original picture.

That’s it! So why haven’t you done a Saturday scene yet?

Just Another Day

Filed under: #satscene —— Sylvia @ 13:20

The 4th of April was the 94th day of 2009. There are 271 days remaining until the end of the year. That makes for 38 Saturday Scene posts with images from all around the world like this one!

This week was somewhat quieter but we still have scenes from England, Spain, Austria, the Netherlands, Israel, the U.S., Australia and Switzerland. Not a bad haul!

Make sure to pop by and say hello to our wonderful contributors!

Make sure to send a photograph next week. It’s easy! Just take a photo on Saturday, tweet the url to @satscenes and you’ll be included in the next collection.

Note: if you have protected your updates, please DM your url to SatScenes to make sure it gets included!

So who’s counting?

Filed under: #satscene —— Sylvia @ 20:50

If you were watching twitter this evening, you would have seen a conversation something like this:

That’s so funny. I think we have exactly 27 satscenes!

Hurrah for 3^3 SatScenes this week!

Lisa turquoise
@SatScenes so sorry to spoil your count (or am I too late?) :(…

@turquoise Hurray, that’s 28 photos on the 28th. Adding you in quick :)

oh wait. Or maybe I just can’t count.

I skipped 8 and 11 – we actually have 26. D’oh!

Lisa turquoise
@SatScenes LOL. Have a drink and try again ;)

And that’s why I’m sipping white wine instead of writing a witty intro!

Meanwhile, we had twentysix great Saturday scenes on March the 28th which is the most we’ve ever had! And wow, people started talking about food and look at some of the nice dishes that turned up. If every person who did a Saturday Scene brought me a meal, I’d be well-fed for almost a month! *drool*

OK, OK, on to the photos:
