Point and Shoot competition #164 - Relax

Relax ...
Well, isn't this what a hobby is about.

I see this as a very broad theme. Can be people or animals being relaxed but just as well activities or scenes that make you or the viewer feel relaxed.
Maybe some of you will come up with even another interpretation.

I'm really looking forward for all your entries! I sure can use some relaxing moments


Rules:

1. Always 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 (some exceptions below).
No (D)SLRs or any camera 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 November 30th, 2021 midnight CDT.

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.

Relax and have fun!

A pair of very comfortable pups, keeping an eye out for anything suspicious in the neighborhood…

Well, sadly this month came quietly to an end.

Little entries this month but it's not the quantity that matters but the quality
And there was plenty of that. All entries nicely fitting the theme.

Not much sense in naming seconds or thirds so, I'll just skip right to the end.
The winner of this contest for me is Jim - RonDox.
The two dogs and the homy mood did it for me.

So, over to you Jim. You're up

Thanks, Bart! They just caught my eye that day, and actually stayed in place long enough to grab my phone... Now I have to ponder a new subject to post in the next day or 2.

Jim
