January 2012 Photo Contest

Happy New Year Airforums shutterbugs!

I like photos that are taken with an artistic eye. That certain something that makes us stop and take notice. When an Airstream is in the picture it is that much easier, but I hope to see even more that gives the photo extra interest.

For this month I would like to suggest a variety of themes to work with - pick one or pick all three. Everyone should be able to contribute to one of these themes.

1. "Timeless"
A photo with an Airstream, new or old, in a shot that evokes the timeless character of Airstream campers and travelling with them.

2. "Rescue Me"
Show us your best photo when you found, picked up, or bought your dream from the previous owner weather it was in a field, barn or the dealers lot. This can also include the journey home.

3. "Signs"
Any Airstream with a sign in the photo. Extra points for signs with added or double meaning.

Have Fun!
Gary

Not a criticism - just a suggestion:

Many trailers are in hibernation this time of year. Unless we have a stockpile of photos, there's no way we can participate in some of the themes I see here and in the past.

I like your idea of multiple-choice themes. But as a relatively new Airstreamer with limited road experience, I have nothing that I can pull out which would suit the above.

Something which would challenge the creativity - inspire us to take a current picture whether in hibernation or not, would be more inclusive.

So go to your hibernation spot and put a sign in front of it that says "Do Not Disturb". There's the sign category. :grin:

Winter time indoors provides great opportunities to sift through pictures.

I'll break the ice here with a picture of the hot, dusty Nevada desert. The sign says "Rites of Passage" and is at the turnoff to Burning Man, 2011.

Hi Fly
I understand your dilemma being a cub streamer with few photos to share so far. I was hoping to get away from the winter chills by avoiding more snowy scenes. This was in part due to our mercury dropping into the single numbers last night.

Are you sure there are no driveway delivery moments caught on camera? How about one of you reading a dog eared Airstream sales catalog while glancing out at the winter landscape?

I have taken notice of your photos and have high hopes.

Gary

Very funny Mr. chaos

Fly, I suggest letting the trailer warm up for a few hours first if you do try this now.

This is a terrific theme - given the timeless nature of Airstreams this month should produce a crop of outstanding photos - looking forward to seeing everyones contributions!!
