May 2107 Photography Contest

So I was a bit stumped this month for a contest theme so I looked back on the Photography/Contest Thread for some inspiration.

The photography thread started in Jan 2005 by a poster named Theo who had just purchased a new digital camera. The photography "contest" thread started in Feb 2006 by Rog0525 and showcased all kinds of photo's. The first winner was Rideair/Paul who entered a photo of his vintage combo, 66 Overlander & 68 Travelall. Seems there was a prize of a $5.00 bill that was mailed and then some T shirts. The themed part of the contest started in Aug 2006 and continues to date.

Many of the posters names have changed since its inception but one thing that hasn't changed is the incredible photographs posted by forum members. We have enough great photos here to do magazine covers, advertising and calendars and then some.

The contest has showcased travels, adventure, family, pets, hard work, scenery, monuments, patriotism, perseverance and camaraderie all in the spirit of Airstreaming and making memories.

So in that spirit this months theme is "Airstreams"

That's right, no special places, holidays, colors or locations, just Airstreams. That likely means we all have photos to submit so post away as I cheer you on.

It is a contest, so this months winner will be chosen based on, setting, composition and overall delight along with the inclusion of an Airstream and feel free to tell us where the photo was taken
.

I've copied the Photo contest guidelines just in case:
You must own the rights to any photograph submitted for the photo contest. This advisory has been written into some monthly contest announcements but it should apply to every contest. Usually this will mean that you took the photo entered in the contest. At the time you enter a photo it's only fair to the other entrants to say if you didn't take the picture but that you own the rights.

So do we have to wait 90 years to post? I might not make it.

I have a plethora of photos. Do you want to set a limit on entries.

Lumatic, no waiting necessary, post away.

Sharing is maybe the best way to go about posting so maybe not your whole digital library . While there isn't any limit on posting you might want to save some of your great entries for the upcoming months when you might be looking for that special one to match a particular theme.

I haven't posted in a very long time. Life just sometimes gets in the way of Airstreaming!

I jumped in my time machine to find this one. Taken in July, 2003 at the Pirateland Campground in Myrtle Beach, SC as a nasty storm approached. It may not be the best quality but it's still one of my favorite photos of our Airstream. And yes, I did take the flagpole down right after I took this shot!

VERY nicely done folks.

It's only a few days in and lots of great photos already.

I'm not going to have to do very much coaxing this month as it's working out well but it will be a difficult task choosing a winner.
