I'm thinking that everyone's out and about enjoying their Airstreams since postings dropped off. Just a couple more days to post.

Good morning and welcome to July 1st 2017. Thanks to everyone who submitted photos and also to those who stopped by to view the entries. After much deliberation and discussion, and with the wife's input, it was a tough decision between BambiCamp and and InsideOut's submissions.

Without further delay, congratulations to InsideOut for their warm, inviting, and charming interior.


Please let us know what the July topic will be, again Congratulations!


As always, the photo contest guidelines are in a Sticky topic at the top of this Photography forum:

-- Warning -- possible rough patch ahead . . .

May I respectively suggest that the low number of photos submitted is because the theme duplicated other threads here, and promoted basically "interior decorating" photos which -- as photographs -- are essentially boring.

The threads for Small Space Living and What Did You Get For the Trailer are similar in content, but they are true to their stated purpose -- focusing on the trailers' interiors and the "stuff" we put in them.

Folks, this is a photography forum, not an interior decorating forum!

Some of the best monthly contests produced great visually interesting photographs -- as PHOTOGRAPHS standing alone without many words attached to them.

You know -- the kind of photo that elicits one basic response:

Wow!


The contest from last September for instance had great photos that showed Airstreams in quirky and whimsical locations. Great shots! [edit see PS]

Like visual "puns" without much explanation needed.

Could we aim for this kind of contest for July? A challenging one?

Thanks for listening, and sorry if I ruffled some feathers. The intent is simply to elevate the quality of this monthly contest to the "Wow" level of photography. The fewer words, the better IMO.

Have a great Fourth!

Peter

Some of my favorite shots to take involve juxtaposing my airstream with something larger than it should be: a dinosaur, Babe the Ox, a pistachio, "Pedro", a giant rocking chair... I've put some examples from my collection below.

For September, please show me shots where your airstream looks unusually small next to something bigger than it should be. The more whimsical, the better. Show me a roadside attraction so large (and maybe even gaudy) that you couldn't resist parking your Airstream next to it and taking a photo.

Yes - congratulations! Nice slice of the Airstream experience.

Tsunami-v2, thanks for the topic. Every perspective on Airstreaming is of value and interest.

Looking forward to the July topic announcement. Pat

Thank you TSU for selecting my entry as "this month's winner"! While I am honored to have won, I should have considered my travel schedule before entering...we are going to be out & about cruising around Jackson, WY & Yellowstone, Aspen & Snowmass the end of July & through the first week of August so I will not be able to monitor the contest this month. I would like to defer to BambiCamp as the July 2017 contest judge and encourage him/her/them to select the next topic.

In response to OTRA15's post...WOW! is right, when you win, you can pick the topic & rules. In the meantime, congratulations to BambiCamp and have fun selecting your theme and judging however you see fit!

Thanks again!

Shari

Congrats on the beautiful photo of your interior. I for one really liked it as I love seeing the different interiors.

OTRA15 warning rough patch ahead

Possibly we should leave the photo thread topic and judging to the folks running that's months contest.

It's hard to come up with a theme that hadn't been covered and that's interesting to all.

After all it's not a very serious contest as most of us would not win compared to the really skilled photographers on this thread.

Let's keep this thread friendly and fun loving.

Anyone? Anyone?

Will someone please post this month's theme so I can do the Ben Stein bore with my camera again.

New Official June 2017 Winner - BambiCamp

Thanks InsideOut. I also have been on the road and understand your polite decline. So as requested by InsideOut, BambiCamp is now the new Campion. I also have been on the road for a couple days. Went to AS factory for some warranty work and additions to our AS.

I understand how subjective photography is and not everyone care for all photos. I'm my own worst critic when it comes to photography, and I've been shooting since the third grade. Agree that it was tough selecting a topic that had not, in some form or fashion, already been the "Topic" that I selected, but it's what I like to see when I attend rallies. Almost all AS's are alike on the outside, but it's mainly on the inside where the owner's put their personal touches to make themselves comfortable in their AS home. I have found untold numbers of idea's seeing what brilliant things that others have done and tried to replicate them in my AS. That being said, I'm moving on from this subject and will continue to support the photo contest, as I have in the past, and into the future.

BambiCamp, good luck, and I look forward to your topic. Hope to be in the first batch of photos you receive.

Tsunami, I couldn't agree more.

Most of the photo themes incorporate an Airstream shell, embellished by its surroundings. Some may view this redundancy with some degree of ennui.

The interior gives us a glimpse into the owner's soul.
