Each year we head back to Provincetown for a few weeks to see old friends and chill. We usually go when the big events have passed and before the last big theme party hits. This past summer Provincetown TV (PTV) launched its own version of a crowd-source “day in the life” called #Ptown24 asking for folks to share images from throughout a 24 hour period using the hashtag #Ptown24 (which happened to occur while we were in town). Below is the summer version and happy to say several of my shots made it.
A crowd sourced multi-media portrait of 24 Hours of Life in Provincetown; over 2oo hundred photos, 48 videos all in the same 24 hours. Heather Reed of Provincetown Television got the ball started.. and I’m hearing a winter version of #Ptown24 is brewing now too. See the message post below.

In fact – are you going to be in Ptown in February? Help document 24 hours of life in the winter in Provincetown!
Everyone who lives here in the winter gets asked (like a million times) “What do you DO all winter?” It’s time to stand together and ANSWER BACK! With beautiful little videos and photographs of our lives in our beautiful town when most people are elsewhere.
From 6 am 2/24 to 6 am on 2/25, PTV and LIPTV ask EVERYONE in Provincetown to shoot and post short videos and photos of your day to the first WINTER #Ptown24! Invite your friends to join the #PTown24 Facebook group and contribute videos and photos or follow along as the day unfolds.
We encourage you to post and tag your posts with #Ptown24 everywhere on this day, but we learned A LOT about Facebook and Instagram’s privacy settings last time. That’s why this time we’re asking everyone to join the #Ptown24 group and post contributions here. That way your beautiful post doesn’t show up as a white box that says “Attachment Unavailable.”
