#518 Lost or Discarded Objects
Posted By: jcsnyc, 11-30-2020, 01:52 PM

Thanks ramseybuckeye for hosting last week's challenge and choosing my photo!

This week I am looking for photos of lost or discarded objects. I have been doing a lot of photo-walks lately and am always intrigued by the things people have lost or discarded. Every object seems to tell a story and I can't wait to see yours!

The challenge will close on Monday, December 7th at Noon GMT. (7:00 AM EST in Brooklyn where I live.)

Every week, a new theme is picked and judged by the winner of the previous week.

Rules
1. Post ONE photo.
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 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.

Examples from my most recent walks:

Between masks and gloves, I have been seeing WAY to many of them discarded indiscriminately. Great capture of the rusted engine block,and old V8!

Cool idea for a weekly challenge. I took this one about 8 years ago while out for a drive with my wife and kids. We had gone to a spot I wanted to take some pictures at, and took a different backroad on the way home, when I saw this old Mercury sitting in the trees. I was going through and organizing some old pictures a few weeks ago, when my son saw this one and asked for a poster of it. He would have been about 1.5 months old when I took the picture, I wonder if he remembers being there for it? The poster showed up in the mail today, then I saw this challenge and thought I'd share it here. Taken with my trusty K10D and Sigma 105 f2.8.
