Challenge #380 - Ball
Posted By: Will in Seattle, 02-19-2017, 09:46 PM

Hi folks,

Winter's almost over, and this week marked the start of spring training for the upcoming baseball season. Since this has me excited for the pleasant outdoor evenings and painfully-slow action soon to come, the theme this week will be "ball." Interpret as you will - no sports necessary!

Best of luck!

(edit - the deadline is Feb. 26th at 11:59 PM PST)

The Rules:

1. Post ONE photo (max 1024x1024).
2. The photo must portray an interpretation of the theme.
3. Post your single picture in this thread and explain what motivated you to take the picture and/or how you feel it represents the weekly theme (especially if it's not obvious).
4. The challenge is interactive. Any response is welcome.
5. The judge will pick the WINNERS and choose one of them to be the judge for the next week.
6. This challenge runs for 7 days plus an additional day for the judge to choose the winners.
7. Any Pentax (or Ricoh DSLR ) camera can be used.
8. Pictures can be from any time frame, not just within the week of the current theme.
9. In case the winner of a challenge is unable to become the judge for the next challenge, then the winner will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

Frozen in time

A simple "Ball" shot. I was playing around with the stopping action of my flash and got this shot of a golf ball dropping into a pan of water.--charliezap

New Year's Ball

In Midland, Michigan, the New Year's ball changes colors. Below is one of the six shots I posted at Flickr after the celebration of the arrival of 2013. (If you want to see the other five images, please try clicking on the photo and — after you reach the Flickr page —using the arrows alongside the image.)

Not a disco. Part of an art exhibit held in a derelict power station last summer.
