Point & Shoot Contest #38 - The Test of Time

THEME - The Test of Time


Afther the happy-happy time of the Christmas period, I felt a somewhat darker theme might be in order :ugh:.
A lot of possibility for creativity here, I think.

The theme is about the impact the passing of Time has. Can be on buildings, cities, machines or other objects but just as well on people!

My expectancy is of course to see that all of these things fail The Test of Time dramatically but you can proof me wrong of course.
See, I want to be optimistic .



THE RULES
1. Have fun!
2. No 35mm, APS, or 4/3 SLR/DSLR cameras allowed. 110 film SLRs, 35mm and smaller rangefinder/viewfindercameras are allowed. No large format cameras allowed.
Since our resident Medium Format enthusiast was so unfortunate with receiving his prints for Contest #36 too late, I thought to extend barondlas one time 'amnesty'. So, this extra one time, medium format non-slr cameras will be allowed .
3. Entries will close on January 30th 2011, midday GMT.
4. Maximum image dimensions are 800x800 pixels.
5. List camera brand, model with entry for all to see.
6. THEME: "The Test of Time"
7. Max of 3 photographs per person.
8. Post processing is fine.
9. Winner will set up and judge next contest.


Looking forward to see what you come up with, people!

Test of time sounds like an interesting theme. Will have to think on it a while.

I applaud the decision granting a pass to the medium format enthusiast. Hope he shot something that works for this theme - otherwise he may miss the contest again, waiting for the film to return. Know the feeling, I am waiting for my last Kodachrome to arrive from the finishers.

thanks

I'm very glad the theme already peeked some interest.

Great! Just post them and take the lead . Pole position is a good way to start a contest.

Hope you're kidding about the ESP though


Oh and Happy New Year to all!

Hi folks !

First of all, I'd like to wish a happy new year to anyone hanging here... Hope we'll get some nice pictures along those 52 weeks.

Here's my first try : an abandoned service station near my parents.

According to the inscription, sitting there since the fourth year of the reign of the Enkyo Emperor (1747). He must have known he'd be there a good little while as he displayed the foresight to get into a comfortable position:
