Photography Contest #127 v2 OPEN

Recommended Posts

Welcome to the Photography Contest!

 

Where you submit photos you've taken and users vote on which photo they like the best.

 

Unfortunately, I think the previous contest was just posted when everyone was busy, and now Clya, who hosted the last one, is too busy to breathe life back into it (unfortunate because it was a very pretty prompt). I am giving people two weeks to see and submit a picture for this contest. The deadline will be extended if necessary.

 

Deadline: February 6th

 

This time the theme is: Nostalgia.

 

Nostalgia

noun

a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations

 

This could be a picture of a childhood toy or someplace you used to play. It could be a movie theater you used to go to. It could be a collection of old shirts. It could be an old picture from when you visited a national park. Whatever brings about a feeling of nostalgia for you, that's what I want to see.

 

Examples: Kitty in a Family of Shoes / Gingerbread UFO / Crystal Geyser near Green River, UT

 

Rules

- One entry per person

- Picture has to be made by yourself and can't be just a reproduction of someone's work. If someone else's work is in the picture, there needs to be something extra.

- No manipulation besides basic photo adjustments (contrast, exposure, cropping, color balance, lighting, etc.)

- No text or framing in the photo. A signature/watermark is just fine, but it's preferable if you don't have "O Hai Eye Hav3 T3XT" (or something similar) present in the photo.

- When voting, please don't select your own image. This will ensure fairness.

- You are free to submit an old photo; you don't need to take a new one just for this competition.

- Winner hosts the next contest.

You got me, Sock! It's not really a good picture, but I couldn't resist your topic. This one is double nostalgia. It's a picture of my granddaughter who is now 5 and very grown up, sitting in the rocking chair that I remember my dad rocking me in when I was a little girl. smile.gif

I was willing to revive this contest. But I didn't said that to anybody.

I'll search my album and may find something.

Ah, throwback to when I owned this lil' dude, Merlin, the lionhead rabbit. And back when I used to take a bunch of photos with my collection of film cameras - took this one with my fisheye camera.
