It’s August and mephisto19 dreams up a rumble focus on all things ‘eight’. Curious as to what the prize is? Check out the details after the jump!

Credits: mephisto19

August, month eight. And eight is the theme!

Is it a german eight (“acht”) like in ACHTung, is it an italian eight like the name Otto or is it the english eight like in sk8ing? Is it the word hidden (please add a hint in the photo description!) somewhere? Is it the number itself? Is it the laying eight standing for infinity?

  • 8
  • acht
  • otto
  • eight
  • tetë
  • otte
  • huit
  • osam
  • octo
  • sekiz

Details:

  • Of course you are allowed to send in eight photos
  • Only analogue
  • not digitally manipulated
  • ADD ALL META DATA (at least three tags, location, camera, film)

Winner will get piggy points enough for an Oktomat to jive with our theme!

    Man, I want an Oktomat so badly! I just hope an Actionsampler doubles with a Supersampler works, since I figured 4 + 4 = 8.
