Weekend Hashtag Project: #WHPmotels

Weekend Hashtag Project is a series featuring designated themes & hashtags chosen by Instagram’s Community Team. For a chance to be featured on the Instagram blog, follow @instagram and look for a photo announcing the weekend’s project every Friday.

This weekend’s tag was #WHPmotels, which asked participants to capture photographs of motor hotels, or motels, in honor of the first motel opening 87 years ago in San Luis Obispo, California. Every Monday we feature some of our favorite submissions from the project, but be sure to check out the rest here.

In honor of the first motel opening 87 years ago in San Luis Obispo, California, the goal this weekend is to capture photographs of motor hotels, or motels. Some ideas to help get you started: classic motel signs are an excellent starting place, but try to capture unique aspects of the architecture, the door numbers, or the rows of cars lined up in the parking lot, as well!

PROJECT RULES: Please only add the hashtag #WHPmotels to photos taken over this weekend and only submit your own photographs to the project. Any image taken then tagged over the weekend is eligible to be featured right here Monday morning!
