Point and Shoot Competition #158 - Playing and Games

Ever since the dawn of human cultures on the planet earth, and even before that, we human beings have been distinguished, from other species, by our ability to play Games. There are many kinds of Play - and many kinds of Games - everything from the cerebral game of Chess - to complex team sports like Soccer, American football, or basketball. There are board games for multiple players, ancient games involving tiles, like Mah-Jong, there are numerous card games for multiple players and always games of 'solitaire'. And the act of PLAY itself is and can be special: there are myriad children's games - games of chance and luck and betting - there are contests and competitions of all types and kinds. And let's not forget there is also play-acting - and just plain 'playing'. In fact, this very Competition is a form of Playing - and a Game itself!

Any and all interpretations of Play - or Playing - or Games - will be welcome. And don't forget the common thread that runs through so much 'play' and so many 'games' --- of having fun! The contest will run through the entire month of May (which by the way, began with May Day - a day of historical celebrations and, yes, Games!)

I have simply copied and pasted the previous month's rules.

RULES:

1. Always have fun!

2. Cameras:

Compact cameras
Sensor size does not matter.
No large format or camera typically requiring a tripod to use.
No interchangeable lens cameras (some exceptions below).
No cameras weighing over 1kg.

Cameras permitted:
Mobile phones, tablets, small sensor toy cameras.
Pentax Q, Nikon 1, Ricoh GR, any 110 film, 35mm point and shoots from the 1980s/90s (e.g. Pentax PC35AF etc.)
Cameras you can take with you in a coat pocket.

ANY CAMERA BRAND ALLOWED.

3. Entries will close May 31 2021 midnight PST

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 closing date/time.
