Weekly Challenge #556 - Man and Machine
Posted By: StephenHampshire, 09-03-2021, 05:45 AM

So this week, I would like your entries to show the human race interacting with their machines....machines can cover a multidtude of mechanical and electrical contraptions, though to make it more interesting, I'm excluding purely electronic devices such as smart phones.

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 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.

My portfolio includes a lot of machines in the form of locomotives, but I've added a few samples of other machines, I'm sure you've all got more varied examples!

I was at lunch and saw this scene, firemen working on putting out a fire in their engine compartment. I had the camera and lens in the car and went and got them. The fire was persistent and they worked on it for a while. It never got out of control and they were quite calm and eventually got the fire resolved.

Covering a Truckfest for our town newspaper, I found this ambitious driver meeting the challenge. Shot with the K-30 and Sigma 17-70mm lens at 35mm.

Where did you see this “Cat?” My dad flew anti-submarine patrols off Florida in PBYs before transferring to PB2Y Coronado’s and the South Pacific later in the war.

On Loch Ness… I believe it’s now the only flying example left in Europe.

It had to have an engine replaced, so it was with us here for a few weeks.

A bit less horsepower though.
Quite a peculiar contraption and I do come from a (the) biking nation and have seen some funny stuff.
