Photojojo have come up with an interesting and fun challenge. Rather than sending a letter and getting the people to send on the letter to everyone they know (a chain letter), this works by taking a picture with a picture in it, or retrospectively adding the picture digitally. Pass this on to friends who repeat the process. So eventually you have a photographic Russian Doll effect. It would be interesting to see how many pictures can be nested.
