Weekly challenge #496 - museum pieces.
Posted By: rod_grant, 05-16-2020, 05:13 AM

I am looking for images of items on display in museums.
I am looking for historical significance, and would love to know which museum and the date of the item (but that is optional!!)

This challenge will close at 18:00hrs on Sunday May 24th - AEST (UCT +10)
The fine print:
Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

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/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, they will PM the #2 winner for that person to be the judge

To be honest to my wanting some info for each image, I better be nice too...
1. Wooden water pipe, Sydney 1792, National Museum, Canberra.
2. Wheat stripper, 1900, National Museum, Canberra
3. Treadle wood lathe, date unknown, private museum in Huon Valley, Tasmania.
4. FJ Holden, 1954, National Museum, Canberra.

33.5 hours to go.
Nothing yet from the Guggenheim, the Tate, the Smithsonian, or the gazillions of other museums.
No entry = No win.
