Extended Rumble - Tourist in your Hometown

19

If you ever felt that you could rediscover your roots the time could not be any better with this extended rumble!

Its time to venture outside your safe heaven of home – work/university – bar – park and back home! Its a shame to live in a large city and only ever see the same streets, the same bars and the same faces each day! That’s why, for this rumble, we got a special task lined up for you!

We want you to dress up like a foreigner, walk around wearing a foreign sport jersey and show us that you are a hardcore fan, speak in foreign languages and sing tunes from a far off land! Whatever you do be sure that you capture the moment with your favorite analogue tool, either of yourself pretending to be a foreigner or of the reactions of your neighbors as they ask their local gods if you have indeed gone crazy!

This is no ordinary rumble, and thats why we are giving you a little bit more time and a little more something to take home at the end of the day.

Details:

  • Upload at most 10 pictures for this rumble, at least 768 px in either size or width
  • No need to hurry with this rumble, we are giving you till the 25th of April to upload your shots!
  • For this rumble one winner will take home 53 piggies! (Enough to order your own Krab, currently on a 25% sale!)
  • By submitting your images to this rumble you allow Lomography.com the rights to use your pictures for promotional purposes

    For this rumble please either dress like you do not belong in your hometown or rediscover your town like a tourist would, speak in a foreign language, dance the salsa, sing the blues or throw tomatoes at each other (as long as neither of those are local traditions :P)

    but of course there are more down to earth tourists as well, the choice is yours!

    as for the upload size for a 120 pic, at least 768 px

    Do I have to do the part of dressing like tourist, etc? I mean, I already feel like a tourist in my own city, I have tons of "tourist" pictures and also, I'm blond with green eyes, sometimes people think I'm tourist... ;)

    The World According to Herr Willie: Salvation Mountain

    Leonard Knight passed away last year but he left an incredible legacy, an embodiment of love, that is Salvation Mountain. From 1984, he painted and remodeled a little hill in the California desert that's colorful as a cupcake and truly meaningful. And if anything ever would have been meant to be shot with Lomo cameras, it would be this psychedelic, holy hill.
