This is the "Where the Hell is Matt?" challenge

So a few weeks ago I ran across THIS VIDEO online and I was immediately taken with it. After watching it, I watched it again, and again, and again. Then I had my husband watch it. I think I cried once or twice. And then I had an idea. I was so inspired by all of the people, places, cultures, feelings that I saw in this that I thought it was perfect for a "Let's think outside the box" challenge. So watch this video ( I suggest several times) and see what you draw from it. As you can see from the examples below we all have different ideas about it.
This challenge is going to run from July 28th-August 8th. Please feel free to do as many projects as you want, but be sure to add your link here or to the slide show so we can all see what your take looks like! This is an opportunity to really "think", and not just follow a theme or pattern, so make it your own and HAVE FUN!!
