Lomomission 57: In Transit


Just because you’re not on foot doesn’t mean you can’t shoot! Stand up, balance yourself, and try to win this month’s Lomomission challenge!

We spend a great deal of time traveling – going to work, doing errands, or having a vacation. Sometimes due to the routine that we have grown accustomed to, we don’t even bring our cameras anymore, which is sad! We only get to shoot when we’re stationary or walking, not too much while we are moving. The challenge then, for this month, is to floor us with your shots taken while in transit – be it a bicycle, car, train or a plane! The ride may be rough or the turbulence scary, but can you steady yourself for a fraction of a second to get the shot that will win you a Diana Mini and Diana Flash! Let’s see and find out. For now, hop on and click away! Act fast, as we’re only giving you 2 weeks for this Mission!

Grand Prize:
A Diana Mini and a Diana Flash for the grand prize winner!

2nd Place: 15 Piggies
3rd Place: 10 Piggies
4th Place: 5 Piggies

Competition Details:

  • Film/Camera Type: Any analogue photo not digitally enhanced or manipulated
  • Upload Limit: 5 photos
  • Minimum Photo Dimensions: Submissions must be at least 768px in either width or height.
  • Meta data must be completed (camera, film, location & 3 tags) for prize eligibility.

    I give up. I see my photos under my own "submit photos" window, but they are STILL NOT SHOWING UP under the general submissions page. Please make a system that works, Lomo, it's not fun fighting against bad technology.
