Films & Droplets : The Monsoon Rumble

6

Cloudy skies, shimmering lights on the roads and wet umbrellas. Its monsoons and we're celebrating it here on Lomography. Its the Film & Droplets Rumble

Rains have a special feel to them. They make everything animated. The leaves move with raindrops, the roads shine and the ground seems to have its own fragrance. When its all over, little insects fly around lights like a dream coming to life. And we want to see that through your Lomography Camera.

Send us your best 5 shots of the monsoons and we’ll give you Piggies and more Piggies! The top 5 photos will each receive 10 piggies. The deadline is short! This Rumble ends on July 30th, 2011. Now go out there in the rain and shoot!!

Details:

  • Prize(s): Top 5 winners to get 10 Piggies each
  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated. Please keep in mind of our ’school’s out’ photo theme.
  • Upload Limit: 5 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 800px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags)

Good Luck!

  • Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!
