Pentax Point & Shoot Competition #57 - Caring

Well, this one is inspired by what I'm doing right now - staying at my sister's house helping my mom provide hospice care for my stepdad... So, any photos that show "caring", in whatever way you like!

I like the previous rules, so we'll use 'em again:

The Rules

1. Have Fun!

2. Cameras:
No cameras with sensors larger than 1"
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use
No interchangeable lens cameras
No 35mm (D)SLRs or any camera weighing over 1 kg

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above)
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital rangefinder and viewfinder cameras
Interchangeable or Fixed-lens 110 film SLRs and Pentax Q
TLRs, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6 and 6x4.5 Medium Format "Folding", "Box", or "Holga-style" scale focus cameras (subject to 1 kg weight limitation)

3. Entries will close on Sept 30, 2012. Midnight. PST.

4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels

5. Max of 3 image entries per person, from archives or fresh. Entries may be withdrawn or changed

6. List camera brand, model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

7. Post processing is fine.

8. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges next competition

9. Have Fun!

Jim

Agree, well done, Ivoire! Hope to have something more recent with my XZ-1, but this is with
the Olympus XA, compact 35mm rangefinder, Fuji Xtra 400 film:

Hello everybody!

I think I have no suitable photo yet. However...

I've been washing my car. To some extent, I took some care of her.

Camera: Nokia 500.

Awesome Gt, I like the mist spraying over the car.

I apparently don't care about anything, especially people caring for things, 'cause I got nothing.

Christo, thank you!

G.T, nice, my old beat-up truck could use a bath, but it would just get dirty again.

Cat, hopefully you'll find something this month. I've drawn a complete blank on some of these contests, too.

I've taken this pic down and hope to replace with something more fitting to the topic.

I've counted 10 stitches. Nice job.
Catriona, you obviously care about a lot of things or people, however you possibly don't capture it on stills.

I seemed to have missed the beginning. I could have sworn I subscribed to the thread. Must be (getting) old
Great entries already by ivoire, chubasco and G.T!

It was somewhat difficult for me as well to come up with some appropriate entries.
I'm not really a people 'shooter'. Trying to work on it though.

A staged photo, symbolising the caring.




A little boy, feeding the gulls (completely unnecessary but still).




Both with Panasonic FX500.


Who knows, I might still come up with a 3rd entry.

Chubasco, like the colors in that shot.

G.T., like your interpretation and really nice capture of the spray and ripple effect of the water on the hood

Bart, great 'hands' pic.

Anton, Christo and Chubasco..... appreciate the comments. I shoot everything and anything that catches my attention. find it hard to believe i now own 6 cameras, mostly due to this website.

I only just now saw there was a contest this month.

Can we make a rule that the new winner has to post a link to the new contest in the thread they won?

Ladies and gentlemen... that's gonna be my last entry for this contest I'm afraid.

Raw from the cam... Nokia 500. Further details on demand.
