Point and Shoot Competition #110

Ordinary Things, but Wow!

I love being surprised by the ordinary, something we see everyday that suddenly seems not so ordinary, but surprising and wonderful. This month’s theme will explore how the ordinary can be other: surprising, mysterious, or seen with new wonder. Any subject will do--objects, places, situations--use your imagination and have fun. This is about looking as you go about the day. Enjoy what you see, no limits, and capture it with that Compact!

The almost usual rules:

1. 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 cameras (Fuji X100 and GR OK).
Interchangeable or fixed-lens 110film SLRs and Pentax Q.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close March 31, 2017 at Midnight (EDT).

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.

I haven't participated in a long time. This isn't the best shot I looked through, but I get a kick out of it everytime I see it. My dog makes me laugh and thats good enough for me. Tucker is such a hoot.

Great idea, David!

And already off to a good start, I see.

I'll start with this sous-terrain window

Such a nice contradiction between the old and the new.
