“Camping in a tent is one thing, but staying in this human nest in Big Sur was by far the wildest thing. Sleeping in the open air with the stars as a ceiling was both freaky (we heard animals and strange sounds throughout the night) and calming. Right on the coast, you could hear the ocean all night along with the elephant seals who call the beaches home. Sleeping in a human nest where insects are free to crawl in beside you probably isn’t for most people, but getting out of your comfort zone can be the most rewarding part of traveling.”
Our second potential winner is @brimaxson who will receive a Moment lens package and whose winning photo and caption are below:
“Feeling a little dauntless as we ride the trains through the hill country in Sri Lanka. Learning some new skills from the locals: lean out of moving trains, let the wind hit your face, say hello to everyone and ask where they are going, don’t be afraid to bump elbows, live in the moment, never be too busy to help a stranger let alone a friend.”
Our third potential winner is @5aaad who will receive a Moment lens package and whose winning photo and caption are below:
“This is a post that describes how to take this standard New York shot. Get to Times Square. Take the S Shuttle to Grand Central. Then either take the bus or walk to Tudor City. Climb the stairs up to the overpass. Run into other photographers. Wait respectfully for your turn to stand right in the middle of the perfect symmetry. Take lots of shots. Move away from the middle to let other photographers have their turn. Review your shots. Dislike every single one of them. Wait for your turn again. Open tons of camera apps in the hope of taking a better shot. Get in in the middle. (By now the light has changed considerably). Take tons of shots using every camera app you have. Step away. Review. Be displeased with every shot. Decide to call it a day. Wait for the bus that never shows up. Start walking. Bus shows up. Keep walking because you’re too far away from the bus stop. Repeat. I had to do the above twice before I could get a satisfactory shot. It’s not the best, and I think I can do better.”
