Okay, here I am, WITH AN ENTRY FOR ONCE!




Taken with Olympus XA on sadly discontinued Kodak Ektachrome 100 Vivid Saturation. I believe F/8 or F/11 at 1/125, but since the subject is beyond the lens' far focus distance and it was clearly fast enough to be handheld, it's not all that important

By the way, I love my XA. It's the coolest little pocket camera EVER. A beautiful, multicoated 35mm f/2.8, full frame, aperture-priority autoexposure and a super-quiet leaf shutter, and it's barely bigger than a modern digital. It's been with me literally everywhere I go.

That alone, Erik, is worth a "Oh! Wow!"

And so is your entry! Wonderful!

Thank you! I owe having an entry to A: my Olympus fitting the rules and being so easy to always have on me, and B: the rather looser constraints on theme this month.

I hope to have more soon!

OK, OK, time to enter my last pics. Anyway I think I won't find anything better.
From a photo fair, a girl modelling for photographers:


And as yesterday it was the elections down here, something I faced today:

All the official posters, on the usual display devices (there must be a standard, as they are the same wherever I see them), the all 10 people willing to take over our future... and behind, the "défense d'afficher" mention (no display). The contrast was funny to me.

Both taken with the "usual" Optio P80.

I like both your entries, G.T

The girl certainly thinks she is "Wow" and politics are always "Wow!!!" Everybody is equal but some are more equal, you know

That girl... was. At when the show was over, I walked on her and thanked her. She was stunned by my initiative.

That was the photo I did not want to enter.

I am sorry. I made a mistake
I came to her, and thanked her as she was walking out of the stage.
