The beginning of summer and the recent holiday weekends have probably found a lot of you Lomographers out on the road! The size of the US lends itself particularly well to the roadtrip lifestyle and we at Lomography want to see your best shots of the USA as seen through the great American roadtrip!
You don’t have to be American to submit, but we do want to see that particular view of America that can only be seen on the road. Bust out your shots of gas stations, pit stops, long highways, hotel pools, wacky signs, kitschy roadside tourist attractions, anything that captures the feel of roadside Americana for this road-trippin’ rumble! The top 3 photos will receive 15 piggies and 5 piggies will be awarded to each and every user who submits a geotagged photo.
Here are the details:
• Only 5 submissions per person (so pick your best!)
• All photos must be geotagged with their location
• All photos must be taken with an analogue camera (no Photoshop)!

Like a quick-changing siren, a sunset has fantastic showmanship. It may come in a costume of luminous yellow one day, and a daring paint canvas the next. And of its various looks, five have been getting the loudest applause from all over the community.
