This Place Matters

The National Trust for Historic Preservation has a cool photo project going on: they are asking people to photograph themselves, holding a sign saying "This Place Matters" (the theme of this year's Preservation Month), in front of a favorite historic place. Send them the photo, and they'll add it to their Flickr photostream and pin it on their map - and now they're assembling all the photos into a photo montage of their own headquarters.

We need some Western New York sites on there! How about enjoying this weekend's lovely weather by getting out with your camera and a sign, and getting some photos of one of your favorite historic places. When you send your photo to the National Trust, send me (kcomeau "at" a copy and a sentence or two about what the place is and why it matters to you - you can be our next guest blogger!

You can download the sign and find instructions for uploading your photo at the National Trust's "This Place Matters" website.
