Numbers of Numbers


With the numbers of blogs that sign up for the CDPB theme every month mushrooming, I was in more than a single mind whether to participate or not.

When I looked through some of the photographs published here over the last couple of years I was quite taken aback by the sheer number of numbers I'd use.

So what does all this add up to? There's a book prize waiting for the person who comes up with the nearest accurate answer. I might even give away a few runner-up prizes. No clues given and no questions answered along the way. I'll reveal all on Saturday.

Over 180 blogs are taking part in the theme this month. To view thumbnails for all participants visit the CDPB portal

CONGRATULATIONS!!! YOU ARE THE ABSOLUT WINNER OF TODAY'S QUIZ!!!!!

Kate said...

I had hoped to post a collage of "fancy" house numbers, but then decided against it...too much work. Yours is very clever.

Wild guess: 47

Lynette said...

Well, this is brilliant, Gerald. I appreciate all of the effort you've put into your collage. However, I'm not much good with numbers, so I'll leave the answer to others who are.

Glad I've been able to shatter that non-humorous stereotype for you.

Marcel said...

I do not know what it means but that is one heck of a lot of numbers. It looks like many of them are dealing with money.

Jeremy said...

love the eclectic nature of the montage .. well done

lavenderlady said...

I wouldn't have a clue...but what a great post!

Olivier said...

bravo, une très bonne idée ce montage, j'aime beaucoup.

bravo, a very good idea this assembly, I like very much.

Jilly said...

Great collage, Gerald. Love the way you've mixed such different sorts of photos too - especially the English breakfast! It's a very English mix - you couldn't be anywhere else. Very good.

I couldn't begin to guess. Look forward to hearing the answer tho.

Chuck Pefley said...

Well I can't guess. I sure see a lot of numbers in your grouping today, though -:) Lovely collection today!

Ben said...

Nice collage, interesting to find the original one from each section...

Our portal seems to be working but seems to be gathering many traffic and often getting too busy page.

crittoria said...

You found lots of numbers!

April said...

Nice collection of numbers. So you couldn't decide which to show?? ;-) Like me, I chose two.

Keropok Man said...

hmmm are you a mathematician? hehe..

mirage2g said...

Wow! Numbers in numbers! Great collage, I wont participate as my head as spinning for counting my posts too..lol. Have a happy theme day!

lv2scpbk said...

Wow! You got alot of numbers. I think so far you get the reward for the most numbers I've seen.

Champ Townboy said...

I failed math, send me the book, I didn't fail reading! LOL

This is an awesome post and a great way induce interactive blogging!!

Your EG Tour Guide said...

You certainly have found a few numbers in your neck of the woods! How about 103? -- that would be slightly less than once a week over two years.

Jackie said...

Hmmm, I wonder if you're heading to a significant number either of blog posts (I thought it was your blog birthday recently, so maybe not), or a significant number of years (in which case happy birthday just in case!).

Kuanyin said...

If I'm understanding the question you asked correctly, you're asking us to estimate how many photos on ALL the CDP blogs through the years? Maybe 10,000?

Great collage btw!

Tanya said...

I love the collage of numbers! Very unique, each one of them!

Sally said...

The answer is, and always shall be "42", of course!

Small City Scenes said...

We are a world of numbers, number keepers and number seekers. What does it mean when people say 'I've got your number'? MB

ft. lauderdale daily photo said...

Well, a wonderful collage of numbers. And the recurring theme I saw in it was the rising gas prices. On the other hand, if a math word problem is involved, the prize is safe for someone else to win!

Marie-Noyale said...

Great patchwork of numbers..
but I never have been good with numbers...too lazy to add up!
I will look for the answer just for the fun of it!!

Steffe said...

42!

babooshka said...

A wonderful collage of very differnt number signs. I'm with Sally the answer to any question i don't have the answer to is 42. A very eclectic mix. Did you realise you had so many number related posts?

iBlowfish said...

Interesting collage, I like them.

Felicia said...

It adds up to 753 wonderful posts at Hyde DP! 2 years + 23 days = 753. From your collage I thought "crazy sale" and the pregnancy testing ones were interesting!

Marie said...

Very nice montage. I should have done like you!

CrazyCow said...

I'm going with 25 just to be different. 25 of course being the number of pictures with numbers that you've posted.

Lady Demeter said...

so many numbers! :D
love them :)

happy theme day ;)

Kelly said...

Excellent photo montage!

marley said...

This is a good idea for Theme Day Gerald! I tried to add them up but I got very confused! I'll guess 123,456! It must be somewhere near!!

Kim said...

Oh Gerald, this is a clever post! And a very nicely done collage, too! I know how hard it is to have photos look as one would like when centered in a thumbnail in a mosaic. Well done. I especially like the watch face in the center. I couldn't make out numbers in about 5 of the squares and couldn't enlarge the image. Then I got to thinking and I'm going to answer that all this adds up to 7, my favorite number as it happens.
Happy theme day,
-Kim

The T in D & T said...

Very interesting quiz and much nicer photos. I'm awaiting for the correct answer on Saturday!!!

raf said...

Great mix of colors, subjects and, of course, numbers. Couldn't venture a guess....will have to wait and see.

Ken said...

Nice collage.

Ham said...

Great post - and hte idea of a kit that can test for twins at only£5 is excellent ;-)

brian said...

very cool collage!! i thought about doing something similar, love how this turned out!

USelaine said...

Great approach - I forget how much numbers, numerals, and quantities come up in my surroundings until a theme day comes along to remind me.

J.C. said...

Does all the numbers add up to be "over 2-years of commitment to your Hyde Daily Photo blog"?

I had a tough moment with this month's theme, not knowing what to feature. Seeing your photos, I can see that numbers appear in many of our photos without us being aware of them! I gotta sharpen my awareness more! Thanks!

Carraol said...

Clever post and collage. A splendid work.

Neva said...

I guess we are a bunch of chickens to not guess....I'll guess around 30? Love your choice today....very nice.....

Helen said...

Gerald, I believe it adds up to a whole lot of numbers!

Nice collage!

DS2944 said...

Great colored ... and numbered (of course) composition !

For the music on my DPB you can stop it with the integrated Deezer player in te right, down on the page.
The automatic play is nice for some who does'nt know how to run the music and if there is one ;-)

Mo said...

Well I guess you have enough numbers to produce a book. Are we expecting Hyde daily photos in print soon?

smilnsigh said...

I'm no good at math so I'm not even trying. ,-)

But you do have the most number of 'numbers' of any participant I have seen!!!

You know, I looked at lots and lots of these "number day" posts and I have to say I like yours the best! very cheery and well put together.

The D in D & T said...

I really like this collage, great colors, and each photo is interesting in itself.
