Welcome to Round 92 of #PhotoRoulette
Since 2010, travel bloggers have been competing in this illustrious game; which lets us show off our favorite photos from around the world.
Each round’s theme is chosen by the winner of the previous round.
Which means, thanks to Travis at Flashpacker HQ, I’m proud to announce that Round 92’s theme is…
It’s a new year full of endless possibilities and limitless creativity. Let’s be free of constraints and share images that make our hearts sing!
I want to see a photo that you love.
A photo that you look at and say,
This may be my favorite photo!
I can’t believe I took that.
I’m so proud.
I totally rock!
That’s it… share your WOW with the world!
A N D T H E W I N N E R IS . . .
CLAIRE FROM ZIG ZAG ON EARTH!!!
WOW! I mean, WOW! I’ve spent the past decade traveling our world and have never seen anything like Claire’s photo.
The image succeeds on so many levels. Technically, it makes great use of the road as a leading line; and the lone car provides an epic sense of scale.
It also stimulates my imagination; as I find myself totally drawn into the photo and getting lost in the wall of ice.
Finally, the fact that Claire made the photo from a bus window is icing on the cake. If anything, it reminds us all that just because you’re going 80 kph doesn’t mean you can’t take a great photo.
Entering the contest is super easy. Just leave a comment below with a link to the image. Please also include a little story about why this is your WOW image.
Once you’ve added your comment, I’ll add the image to the contest. Don’t forget to check back in during the week to see the other submissions and join the conversation by leaving comments for others.
The contest runs for 7 days starting January 12th and ending January 19th at 12:00 PST.
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

The Fine Print
Here’s the skinny: Winner of the last round of Travel Photo Roulette hosts the next round on their blog.
Our friend, the winner, picks a new theme and invites bloggers to submit photos over the course of one week(ish). At the end, a new winner is chosen.
Lather, rinse, repeat. Couldn’t be easier.
. . .
- One submission per blog
- Post processing/digital editing/retouching/cropping/whatever you want… for this round, it’s all allowed!
- Abstract submissions are welcome. But if you want to win, it’s probably best that the judge understands your interpretation.
- Hosts should keep themes general so all bloggers can participate. Avoid specifics like ‘Eiffel Tower’; instead choose a more open theme, like ‘monuments’ or ‘monuments at night’.
- Abstract thoughts can be fun, as long as everyone can understand. ‘Overlooking creation’ is good, ‘Kafkaesque’ is not.
- No obscene photos or themes allowed. Suggestive themes and photography might be accepted, but be careful. Remember, the host is all-powerful.
- Themes may be reused after a period of time; however new photos must be submitted. Keep it fresh!
- You do not have to take the photo within the week of the contest period to submit it.
- Most importantly: ALL PHOTOS MUST BE YOUR OWN.
- Spread the word about Travel Photo Roulette and use the hashtag #PhotoRoulette.
- Last, but not least: It’s a game, so have fun with it.
