There are thousands of locations around the world that are iconic places to visit not just for the experience, but also to capture an image by which to remember your journey.

And if you're a photographer, you'll challenge yourself to take that image from a different and interesting perspective.

This month, we're interested in seeing your take on famous places around New England, the United States, or the world that are popular destinations for photographers.

Interesting views of the Zakim Bridge in Boston, stunning landscapes from Acadia National Park in Maine, dramatic vistas of the Great Wall of China, colorful photos of San Francisco houses or cable cars ... show us your view of the most famous places on earth.


Your photo does NOT have to be taken this month. Comb through your archives, or shoot something fresh locally; go visit the Bunker Hill Monument or Louisa May Alcott's House or the Berkshires.

One photo per photographer.

The deadline is midnight Sunday, Dec. 4 (to give you time to recover from Thanksgiving).

Here are the complete contest rules.

Life and wildlife in Madagascar
For years before I started college, I knew I wanted to spend a semester studying abroad, but I wasn't sure where. By my junior year at Brandeis, I made up my mind to travel somewhere off the beaten path, and, of course, Madagascar is pretty far off the beaten path for someone like me....
An essay about Rebirth Workshops
Now that it's been several months since I returned from a week-long Rebirth Workshop in Mississippi, I'm happy to look back and provide an overview of what we did that made it such an intense experience for me as a photographer....
Photography apps for your phone
Thinking of ditching your separate camera and moving to just using your phone for all your photos? What apps should you go for? Instagram made headlines recently after being bought by Facebook for $1 billion. What does it include, and what else is out there?...
