Welcome to the Photography Contest!

Welcome back for another round of the DC Photography contest, come and show us what you've got! 

 

This time, the theme is: Knots

 

Submission deadline: November 22

 

Voting deadline: November 30

 

Rules:

- One entry per person.

- A photograph is defined as an image made using a camera or phone camera

- Screenshots are not allowed

- 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.

At one time in my life, I made bookmarks. You have to have a knot to hold on the bead(s).

This is actually a scan of a photo I took in 1997 - no digital photos back then :D

I had a handful of budgies back then, and most of the time, they were flying around freely in my appartment. I took some hemp rope and did a bit of crotcheting-by-finger, attached a millet cob and mounted the result between the various walls and furniture. Unfortunely, I never took a picture of the whole construction, only of Sina sitting on it :) She was completely yellow.

Also, it's the company's scanner that was dirty, not my window, I swear!

Honest, hardworking knot on a cow's harness. I took the photo at an agricultural show.

I came across this little bottle completely by chance while taking my dog for a walk on the beach yesterday. I happened to have my camera with me so I thought I'd see what I could do with it (I didn't move it from where I found it), and I'm really pleased with the result. And then, I realized it fits the theme this time!

Not sure if there's an actual knot in there, but it looks like they tried.
