Point & Shoot Competition #101 - Mates

For our 101th Competition, I thought it might be a neat idea to do something a little different.
For me, photography is about light, sight and imagination.

We all understand the place of light in photograpgy. Then, we have sight, or how we 'see' the image to be. Finally we have the imagination, or the story behind the photo.

The theme of 'mates' could be broadly interpreted, so have a go at it.

RULES (as per usual):
1. Let's have lots of 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 1kg.

Cameras permitted (cameras listed as acceptable here supersede rules above):

Mobile phones, old and new, iPods, tablets, toy cameras.
Fixed-lens 35mm and smaller-format film and digital rangefinder and viewfinder style cameras.
Interchangeable or fixed-lens 110film SLRs and Pentax Q.
TLRs, 6x9, 6x7, 6x6, Medium Format "folding", "box", or "Holga-style" scale focus cameras ( subject to 1kg weight limitation).

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close on Thursday, June 30th 2016 at Midnight (gmt).
4. Maximum image dimensions are 1024x768 (ish) pixels.
5. List camera brand and model with entry for all to see, and exposure data would be nice.

6. No restrictions on when the entries were taken.
7. Contest winner determines the rules, selects theme, sets closing date and judges the next competition.

8. Enter up to three images, however you may change your entries as many times as you like up to the contest closing date/time.

9. Feel free to post a shot (not judged) which shows off your setup.

My father in law, and brother in law; Ron Sr. and Ron Jr. And two sentinels from the Roman Baths at Bath in England. The two Ron's are inseparable the older one taking care of his mentally handicapped son for 45 years now. Together they took care of Ron Sr's wife (Ron Jr's mother) through a long steady decline in early onset Alzheimer's disease. This was the trip of a lifetime (London & Paris and a day trip to Bath) for them both.

Excellent capture Bart, I like the color and tranquiity of the photo. I actually envisioned a scene with two swans when I created the theme. Apprears great minds think alike.
