Pentax Optio W20. Some days, some times of the year, the light on the water lets you know it's there.

Twice strong and mood setting light. Quite different though!
Fine entries, W.j and Niner Alpha!

Hey Bart, would something taken with my Chaika-II be permitted? Half-frame viewfinder camera, but the lens is removable. (Though, as far as I know, they never made more than the standard lens for it.)

Probably one of the last shots I'll get out of it too. It chewed up the roll after that one when I tried to run it through.

The camera cost me about $10, so I can't really complain too much.

I like this theme!

I have to ask since I didn't see it mentioned at all in the rules: are Instant Cameras (Polaroid SX-70, Fuji Instax, Polaroid 180) allowed? Are there any restrictions, there? (I know a polaroid back on a 4x5 field camera is blatant cheating, of course, but I'm talking about instant cameras, not system cameras with instant film backs.)

Hi Erik. Nice to see you here again.

I would think these would easily be covered by
... Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film ...

Looking forward for your entries.

It's great to be back!

I will take it as read then that they are allowed. But the reason I didn't think so reading that, is that Polaroid's native format is the print size. About Medium-format size for the credit-card sized Instax Mini, 3" square for SX-70 and 600, and 3.25x4.25 for the peel-apart films (which is approaching *large* format!) So I wanted to be sure.

First Entry:



Samsung Galaxy S5, post processed in Snapseed for BW/Contrast adjustment and crop.
