December Photo Contest

I hope all the shutter bugs are ready to contribute again. I have always enjoyed travel postcards, even more if they include travel trailers.

Postcard Theme Why We Travel.....with Trailers

The latest Airstream Life has a article about collecting Postcards. I want contributors to this months contest to show us your idea of "Why We Travel.....with trailers" This could mean different things to all of us so there should be lots of variety.

So imagine this is a contest sponsored by some high end luxury RV building company, say like AIRSTREAM for instance. The grand prize will be a new travel trailer of your choice. This is easy for a company like AIRSTREAM as they make "Luxury Travel Trailers"

So extra points for the Airstream, Argosy, MH or other silver sister coincidentally placed in the scene, or

vintage reproductions of postcards with todays models and vintage coaches.

Kodachome coloring and black & white.

Be artsy, commercial and romantic!

Very good combination of the postcard theme and seasonal message. And the caption works well with the idea.

So I should have mentioned that captions can be included as many postcards use them to reinforce the picture.

This is a good start. Nice one Bob. I want to drive down that brown road.

Dig in to those travel photo boxes! Send us a POSTCARD.
