The 10 best RV images on Flickr

After searching through the two billion images on Flickr, we’ve compiled a list of the ten best RV pictures. Or make that 11 if you count the wonderful Winnebago shot on the left from Mute*.

Not surprisingly, Airstream trailers are one of the most popular subjects with photographers—their highly polished shells reflect subtle hues in amazing ways. (Caterina Fake, one of the founders of Flickr, rates this shot as a favourite.)

So what’s on our list? The first picture is an Airstream shot. But it’s a rather unusual one—it’s actually a miniature model. The vehicles that follow are more obscure, and probably aren’t as familiar to US readers—such as the rare Renault Estafette campervan, shown second from bottom.

Several of the most intriguing RV images are taken at night, using discreet flash or ultra-long exposures. Troy Paiva is an expert at this technique—the last shot in our series is typical of his creations. His portfolio is worth a look.

Click on any picture to go direct to the Flickr page where it lives. Then, for even more inspiration, check out the SquobStock Flickr group. You’ll find another 60 spellbinding, handpicked images.
