Thanks for the entries, JensMA. Also right in the season.
Still time for the 3rd one.

Right, had to look that one up. Have to agree with you there: 35mm is not MF .

Seems the competition with an option for APS-C format on their FF DSLR's are only repeating an old idea.

By the way, where do you get all those vintage cameras?
I buy some from eBay, some from thrift stores, some from antique stores. I'm relatively new to photography and I wanted to get the experience of a bunch of different cameras from different eras. The Yashica itself is an eBay find...$200, including leather case, 35mm adapter kit, and a CLA. I always wanted to try a TLR and this was a good deal. The 635 is the only TLR ever made that has native support for 35mm film as well as 120...and I'd be lying if I said I wasn't thinking of the point and shoot contest when I bought that rather than a Yashica-Mat or Yashica-D, or a Rolleicord.

I also have rangefinders, box cameras, folders, and a few other odds and ends. The only cameras I bought new were my Optio A40 point and shoot, my iPhone, and a Polaroid 300.

As I tell people, I am a photographer, and a camera collector. They are closely related, but not the same hobby.

Here's my last 2: the first will be pretty easy to figure out, but what's the 2nd? Both shot today with an Olympus Stylus 1010 is S. Macro mode.

Camera collector - seems like an interesting hobby. Just be careful it doesn't turn into Camera Buying Addiction

That's about Just In Time, John

The first one is indeed recognisable. The second one has me puzzled.

Part of a lampshade perhaps?

Too late, though I'm actually mostly over it now. I have most of the cameras I really wanted to try.

Second one looks like fancy art paper.

Well, we got a good number of entries this month. All of them good an true to the theme - making my job not very easy.

I asked to be surprised and surprised I was by a lot of your entries. I had expected more man made and ordered patterns but I saw a lot of patterns from nature even some that are quite 'chaotic'. Interesting.

In the end, I make a subjective choice based on how I react on the entries.
I would prefer to nominate you all but this is not the nature of the game.
So, I kept things down to 4 selected entries.


A shared 3rd place for miss_alexx and jheu02:

miss_alexx for detecting and registering a pattern of chaos

jheu02 for showing a wonderful pattern from nature: We are All Made of Stars

Second place for unixrevolution: blinds. Here I liked the conflict from the double image of the construction with the tree in the background.

And finally: first place for barondla!

Showing a man made pattern with natural elements. Wonderful warm colour and so well fitting to this month.

Congrats to Barondla for the win. BTW, that last pattern was a dryer sheet.

Congratulations to miss_alexx, jheu02, and unixrevolution. Great images. Enjoyed them all.

Thanks to Bart for running a good contest, and for picking my picture as winner. Honored to set up the next contest.

Strong entries. Glad everyone participated. Get ready for #36! Will try to set it up in the next day or so.
thanks
