Travel Photo Roulette 105 – Landmarks

What is Travel Photo Roulette?

For the readers who are not bloggers, the Travel Photo Roulette is a photography contest where the winner of the previous round gets to pick a theme, host the contest and decide on the winner. It is a way to share memories, beautiful photography and discover some new blogs!

The last one was hosted by Vagabond Way with the theme of FESTIVAL. The quantity and quality of amazing travel photography as impressive and we were honored to have been selected as the winner for our shot of the Nuremberg Christkind Festival (German Christmas Market). This is our second time hosting travel photo roulette, as we previously hosted Round 89 – Heritage.

Travel Photo Roulette #105: Landmarks

Inevitably, when we travel, we’re drawn to beautiful and iconic landmarks. Some landmarks can be iconic buildings, historic sites or even natural wonders. Landmarks can also be points of navigation or even people who are a reference of time. So, tell us what the theme of LANDMARKS means to you!

To participate this week, tell us what LANDMARKS mean to you. Here are a couple of our photographs to give you some inspiration:

The horses and buggies give a sense of the size of the Great Pyramid of Giza

The world’s most iconic landmark: the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt

One of the most iconic Budapest photos: The Szechenyi Baths.

The Arbeit Macht Frei Gate at the Auschwitz Concentration Camp and Death Camp in Poland.

Not all landmarks are pleasant as we learned at the Auschwitz Concentration Camp

And, the image at the top of this post is the Giant’s Causeway on the Causeway Coastal Route in Northern Ireland.

Travel Photo Roulette Contest Overview

The contest rotates through travel/photography blogs, so the winner of the previous round of Travel Photo Roulette hosts the subsequent round on their own blog. The new host then chooses the next theme (a generic keyword or phrase) and people submit their interpretations of the theme over the course of the week of the contest.

At the end of the week, the hosting blogger chooses their favorite photo from the submissions and displays it as the week’s winning entry. They then include direction to the new host for the next round. Readers can attempt to sway the author into picking a certain photo via comments, but the author can ignore comments as they see fit. The game is repeated with the winner hosting the following week’s game and choosing a phrase for new photo submissions.

Feel free to share this post on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Trover and StumbleUpon so more people can join the contest – make sure to use the hashtag #PhotoRoulette

Travel Photo Roulette Guidelines

  • One submission per blog, so sites that have 2+ authors only get one entry.
  • Post processing is permitted, but photo altering (i.e., using Photoshop to remove elements) is not.
  • Abstract submissions welcomed as long as it fits within the interpretation of the chosen phrase. Remember, the hosting blogger chooses the winner, so if they cannot understand the submission, you might not win!
  • Please try and keep your images medium-sized and web-optimized.
  • If you win, keep these in mind when choosing a new theme: Keep phrases general so that all bloggers can participate. Specific items like “Eiffel Tower” should be avoided but rather made open-ended like “monuments.” For variety, it is okay to say focused things such as “monuments at night” which most of us have pictures of. Phrases can be generic ‘signs’, or abstract ‘religion’
  • Abstract thoughts are appreciated, but keep it within the realm that all readers will understand. No “Kafka-esque,” or “Overlooking Creation.” Use something that is able to be interpreted by all
  • After 1 year, phrases can be reused, however new photos must be submitted.
  • No obscene pictures or phrases allowed. Suggestive phrases and photography can be accepted, but please keep it within reason.
  • Keep the ideas and photos fresh!
  • Pictures from your entire portfolio are fair to submit. You do not have to take the photo within the week of the contest period to submit it.
  • Most importantly, all photographs must be your own.
  • One last rule, since this is a competition for travel and photography bloggers, you must have a travel/photography blog to enter. Sorry!

How to Enter Travel Photo Roulette #105: Landmarks

To enter in the Photo Roulette competition simply leave a comment below with a link to the image (whether Flickr, Picasa or your own site) and we will upload it to this post. Don’t forget to provide a brief description or caption for the photo so the viewers can get a little background as to what’s happening.

Check back here through the week to see all the entries as they come in – feel free to comment on them. The contest runs for 7 days, from June 13th until Saturday, June 20th when the submission period ends. We will announce the winner within a couple of days of June 20th, and they will host the next round.

…And the Winner Is:

TravelnLass

When we decided on the theme of LANDMARKS, we had no idea what we would receive in terms of submissions, but we certainly didn’t expect the quality we received. However, one really stood out. Dyanne Kruger’s image of the moai statues on Easter Island immediately caught our eye. We don’t see a lot of sunrises (we like to sleep in), but this view would absolutely be worth it. Easter Island is high on our bucket list and we hope to be able to visit soon. This is an amazing image and we’d like to congratulate Dyanne!

Entries – Here are the submissions:

1. Dyanne Kruger from TravelnLass

TravelnLass

I’ve been blessed to see many of the globe’s most amazing landmark icons, but I never dreamed that I would one day personally gaze open-jawed at sunrise gawking at those legendary moai on Rapa Nui (Easter Island). Given that I now live in Ecuador, last month a mere $654 rt. airfare changed all that.

2. Amber Hoffman from With Husband In Tow

WithHusbandInTow_Burj-Khalifa-11

This is the Burj Khalifa, #nofilter. I love this photo because it is exactly what we saw, the blue skies with the crystal tower in the center of the desert. I used no filter and did no color editing. It is all natural Burj, as much as anything in Dubai can be all natural.

3. Bethany from Flashpacker Family

FlashpackerFamily_Duomo-Milan

This is the Duomo in Milan, Italy. A spectacular gothic cathedral with hundreds and hundreds of spires topped with statues of saints. Not only is it amazing to look at from the outside and in, you can also take an elevator to the top and walk along the roof!

4. Brent from Brent’s Favorite Photos

5. Suzanne Fluhr from Boomeresque

Boomeresque_Blue-mosque-ceiling

I was going to share a photo of the outside of the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. It’s a view of this majestic landmark that often makes it onto postcards and guide book covers. However, after standing in line to go inside, it was the ceiling that kept me riveted. It took awhile for the crick in my neck from looking up to ease, but it was worth it.

6. Sarah Ebner from Family Travel Times

FamilyTravelTimes_P1070980-1024x768

This is a photograph of The Monument to the Fire of London, which is situated in the City of London. It contains 311 steps, is 202 feet tall and there are great views at the top!

7. Lee Laurino from Home to Italy

8. Elaine Schoch from Carpe Travel

RedSquare_Russia

I love this shot of St. Basil’s Cathedral in Red Square, Moscow. The building is shaped as a flame of a bonfire rising into the sky, a design that has no analogues in Russian architecture. With the sun rising behind it that bonfire takes shape. The Cathedral was commissioned by Ivan the Terrible in the 16th century to commemorate a military victory. Legend has it that after it was completed, Ivan had the architect blinded in order to prevent him from building a more magnificent building for anyone else.

I took this shot of St. Basil’s Cathedral in Red Square in November, when the sun doesn’t rise until nearly 10am in Moscow. Walking through Red Square at this time of day is calming, peaceful and beyond beautiful. Many people loose sight of the beauty of Russia given the news and politics we’re but when you set those things aside and truly see the country and its people verses the politics it’s something to savor and soak in.

9. Carole Terwilliger Meyers from Berkeley and Beyond

This image of Alcatraz Island was taken from the tour-boat shuttle on a rare perfect-weather day in San Francisco.

10. Tom Bartel from Travel Past 50

TravelPast50_Mt-Fuji-from-Iyashi-no-Sato

I’ve got about a million landmark shots, but I don’t think there is any one that is more iconic than Mt. Fuji in Japan. (Well, maybe the Eiffel Tower.) Anyway, shooting Fuji was hard. We were there for three days and the mountain only showed himself for a total of about four hours during that time. About 10 minutes after I made this shot, the mountain was completely obscured by clouds again. Anyway, I like this shot over the village roof tops.

11. Alouise from Take Me To The World

TakeMeToTheWorld_St.-Louis-Cathedral

My pick for this week’s Travel Photo Roulette is St. Louis Cathedral in New Orleans.

12. Josie from House Sitting Travel

HouseSittingTravel_Cordoba10

Entering the enchanting Mezquita in Cordoba, Spain is to enter the conjoined religious past of this fascinating city. In this photo, I wanted to show the dome of the Catholic cathedral that was build right in the center of the Moorish castle — the striped arches. Skewing the whole thing felt like the right thing to do!

13. Daniel Cronk from Globe-Trekking

Globe-Trekking_Shwe-Dagon-Pagoda-1

I chose the Shwedagon Pagoda in Yangon, Burma.

      Thanks Amber! We got to see this being constructed. At the time, they were calling it the Burj Dubai. The mall at the base was done and they were working on the water features, but that was it. Amazing to see it completed.

    Hi Lance,

    I love the entries you’ve got so far! Not sure I can win against Dyane’s Easter Island photo but here is my submission.

    This is the Duomo in Milan, Italy. A spectacular gothic cathedral with hundreds and hundreds of spires topped with statues of saints. Not only is it amazing to look at from the outside and in, you can also take an elevator to the top and walk along the roof!

      Great shot. I was just looking at our Cordoba photos a few weeks ago. During our visit, the domes were completely covered in scaffolding, so we couldn’t see much of the ceiling. It’s nice to know what they look like!

It is noted to having the largest all wood carved altar piece known in Europe with 22 different statues. The second image in the post below is photo of St. Mary’s Basilica.

    And so I shall (host the next round of TPR shortly). Thanks much Lance, for choosing my image among the many notable entries here. And yes, I too generally prefer to “sleep in”, but there’s just some places in the world, that are worth getting up at pre-dawn o’clock. 😉

    Stay tuned, as I’ll be traveling soon, I thought it best to do a quick turn-around for TPR #106 – so already chose a theme and just this moment published it here:
