Whether you’re traveling overseas or traveling to the local park for few picnics this summer, thanks to digital and mobile photography, we can all capture the memories.  To celebrate summer and our love of travel (big and small), we’re kicking off ‘Travel Tuesday’ for the month of August.

Every Tuesday a new set of images will be posted on this blog. Tell us where the photo is from and you could win a Sony NEX-3N camera. We’ll be giving away one camera every week.

    • Example: @SonyElectronics The photos are pictures of Rome #TravelTuesday.
    • If you send in your answer as a comment on the blog, make sure you provide your correct email address so we can contact you if you win.

One entry is allowed per person, per day, and only U.S. residents are eligible. Three winners will be selected at random.
