Trippy Travel Photos Game: How It Works

When you travel off the beaten path, you never know what you’ll discover. Each moment is different and often “trippy” in some way. And you’ll often see that in certain photos you take. And when others look, they ask:

What/where the heck is it?

And what the heck was happening in that particular moment?

The Game

Every week or so, I’ll post  one of these unique photos and give you the opportunity to guess in a few sentences–or maybe come up with a clever caption–in the Comments section. Approximately 48 hours later,  I’ll tell you exactly where I was and what the heck it was that I actually photographed.

Whoever comes closest to guessing–or writes the best caption–wins!

What’s the prize?

Well, at this point, I can only thank you and post a link to your blog. Eventually, I may run a contest and offer an actual prize.

Until then, I’d  simply love to experiment with this new photo guessing game and would love your help with it. By the way,  if I keep this going, Trippy Travel Moments may focus on the following:

Trippy Travel Categories

Human/s…Being…a person or people in a one-time moment of one or more real emotions.

Off-Beat Oddities…definitely different, a little way out and maybe a bit far out (like the photo you see above)…may overlap with the next category on occasion.

Surreal Seconds…a bit dreamy and disorienting and slightly unbelievable snapshot in time (eg, patterns or illusions in nature)
