Allison: “I liked how we just bombarded the shit out of each other and sometimes the photos followed one another and other times they were completely random.”

Hilary: “My favorite moment was when we sent each other photos of being on the other’s website (I followed this exchange up with the ☺ photo to express my joy at the exchange!). It reminded me of the xkcd comic that there’s always a person behind the keyboard.”

Allison: “Neither of us sent nudes (unfortunately) so it definitely could have been weirder. I was surprised by how the really boring shit I do everyday seemed way more fun without words. Without any context, even the lamest photos I took were way more interesting.”
