Congratulations to all the participants and especially to er1kksen of course!

:o I must admit I didn't give his entries the attention they deserve.
Spiders and I don't see eye to eyes :)
I grew up in a townhouse a couple of hundred years old and from time to time, some seriously big spiders would "appear" to say Hi :).

Also special thanks to Miguel for running a great contest and for providing such a detailed and insightful feedback.

My second entry is a fungus forming a big cluster by the way. I saw it lying on the woodland floor and this was the hart of the structure. I found it translated well into b&w. The colours were brown - orange - broken white.

A wise man, your Dad!



I'm afraid these will be with us for some time

I learned one thing from noting down the exif info: I must really like the 26mm field of view :hmm:
Unless zenfolio is messing up the exif info :rolleyes:

That's luxury alright!

For that money, you can get a fine house over here :)

I guess it's as with buying a Rolls Roys "If one has to ask for the price, this car is not for you" :)



A close look indeed :)

Amazing how decay often translates into great images.



Great sense of humor of the owner, Bill! :)
Beautifully captured. Looks like remarkable woodwork.

Congratulations, Miguel! Well deserved.
And thanks for the compliment. Appreciated!

Thanks to Sam for running this contest with an - unfortunately - very actual theme.
Thanks for liking my image as well.

Thanks, Bill!

Yours look as some serious "Signs of the times"




"Don't try this at home" comes to mind. Except in times as these of course.
In our country, there's already talk of an expected Autumn lockdown ...

my first entry is also rather a symbolic interpretation of theme:

Nothing conveys the theme of isolation as "tea for one"

Yes I am. Thanks.
We are careful and worked from home from the first day it was advised over here.

Great entries, John and Jim.
The one voluntary, or even searched for, the others imposed.

3 fine entries already!
and quite different interpretations.

I especially like David's interpretation with the women sculpture looking at the man sculpture and being confined to her own glass box.
Rather prophetic given our current cirumstances.

Congratulations to kwb, Jim and of course to Sam!

Thanks, David for your competition. Job well done!
Subjective of course, but I agree with your choice :)

Sam, I see the next one is up already.
I hope you don't mind I link it here.

Wonderful!
For me this looks really appealing. This is indeed what I was thinking of.
Great work!

By the way, I'm a bit of a b&w addict :)
It seems I hadn't come across this thread before so, thanks for making me aware of it.
I've already seen some beautiful b&w here.

I especially like your 3rd entry, Sam. Symmetry-wise.

Great entry, Zippy. Fine choice for b&w with the shapes and textures.


I'll complete my set with this 3rd entry.
Not a new image but at least processed just now.

I'm a bit late for my doing but I finally found some time :)

Let me start by saying I'm glad to see some wonderful entries on this months theme.

Here are two of mine, both with Panasonic FX500. Both in a category I refer to as "Signs of religion".
From our 2018 vacation in Autria. In and around the Wallfahrtskirche in Frauenberg, Steiermark.
Processed just now. Yes, I have a bit of a "back log" :hmm:


4.9mm (29mm equivalent), 1/8 at f/3.1, ISO 400



5.3mm (31mm equivalent), 1/640 at f/3.4, ISO 400

A really nice lens as well. Great form factor and fine optics.
At least, I've seen some great results with that lens.
That lens could be around 100 EUR by itself.
