In the vein of events like 24 Hours of Flickr and Scott Kelby’s Worldwide Photo Walk a local photographer recently used Flickr and other local web sites to organize 48 Hours of Maplewood, an event where people in town were asked to go out on a nice summer weekend and document their suburban New Jersey neighborhood.

It was a weekend of hot, harsh sun, but I took a few walks around town and found myself focusing on two common subjects for me — signage and typography and the stuff people have on their suburban lawns.

This Sunday, August 30, 2009 25pm some of the photographs from 48 Hours of Maplewood will be show at an exhibition at 1978 Springfield Ave, Maplewood. You can also view many of the contributed images at the official Flickr group.
