The Rising Sun Rumble


As a special homage to Japan, we are looking for pictures that represent the Land of the Rising Sun. Pictures of sunrises? Great! But let’s open it up a bit! The colourful streets of Shibuya. The serenity of Mt. Fuji. It’s your call – as long as they fit into the Rising Sun theme!

Ah, Japan. Such an exciting place for analogue lovers, as you can find a lot of excellent cameras and a wide variety of film produced in the Land of the Rising Sun! Now, we need your own interpretation of the “Rising Sun.” It could be something as straight forward as sunrise pictures, your vivid memories of your Tokyo visit, or anything that translates to the Rising Sun theme. We’ll be picking 3 winners of 5 Piggies for this rumble!

Need some inspiration? View this gallery!

    Is there really an unlimited upload limit?? I think the one will suffice for me.

    i really prefer to have upload limit (maybe up to 5). it's pretty boring to see hundreds of UNEDITED similar photos in a row. people need to learn to choose his/her best ones that suit the rumble theme before submitting.

    really, whilst it wouldbe nice to enter this rumble, I can get by without it... but...I really cannot upload. I can select the image but I keep getting directed to the "broken LCA" page where apologies abound... Could it be the great firewall of China??? Any other China users getting images up?
