People With ... Books! ended over 5 years ago

If you are a curious Lomographer, (we are sure that you are), you will most likely sneak upon family members and friends while the are... reading! But what are they reading? Are they even reading or are they just looking at the pictures? Are they comfortably at home in the living room sofa or in the library? Do they "shhhhhhhh" you away or smile for your picture? But don't limit your imagination to others, what about you? Do you read? In which position?

But don’t limit your imagination to others, what about you? Do you read? In which position?

For this special rumble we are looking for your best shots with books! Need more ideas? How about:

  • libraries
  • people looking inspired
  • maybe an animal reading? (my dog does!)
  • people drinking tea or coffee with a book

Details:

  • 10 picture upload limit
  • 3 winners of 10 piggies
  • By submitting to this rumble you allow Lomography to use your images for promotional purposes

    I loooove books, libraries and book shops but so far I had no lomographs containing books. So I just took a polaroid of my extremely full book shelve.

    I had 5 shots missing too... just uploaded one of them again... obviously it is working fine now and obviously it has nothing to do with the size of our pics...
    I suppose we have to be patient... no doubt all submissions will be taken into account and maybe the deadline will be extended...
    Enjoy what remains from your weekend! Monday will come (too) soon...

    @Larslau: the pictures that appear in the "Images submitted by users" (23 so far) were submitted now. for example, i submitted yesterday and my shots don't appear. so we're not stupid, there is some kind of problem, get it? "geez..."
