Welcome to the monthly challenge for August 2021. This month’s theme is NOSTALGIA. Post any picture that represents nostalgia for you. Some ideas could be a subject matter that evokes a sense of nostalgia or a photo taken in a creative jpeg mode or post processed with a nostalgic look and feel. A definition of nostalgia follows...

nostalgia: a sentimental longing or wistful affection for the past, typically for a period or place with happy personal associations.

synonyms: wistfulness; longing/yearning/pining for the past; regret; reminiscence; remembrance; recollection; homesickness; sentimentality


Do not feel constrained by the definition or suggestions, post any image that you feel you can loosely match to the theme. If you post a photo that you feel matches the theme but it may not be obvious to others why, please include a short explanation so we can know where you are coming from.

Happy shooting - I hope the theme makes you want to get out and explore.

Rules:
  1. The image must be taken within the contest month; the date the photo was taken must be stated in the post.
  2. The image must resemble the theme, although a liberal and creative interpretation is encouraged.
  3. A maximum of two (2) entries per participant, in separate posts

Rules for Participants:
  • This is a fun contest with nothing to be won but bragging rights.
    Having said that, please read and follow the rules below to make it easier for everyone.
  • The contest period is the current month. Entries can be made until approximately midnight on the last day of the month local time (in this case I will use GMT time). You can Vote for any picture or multiple pictures you like during the month and voting will extend until the third day of the following month. The winner will then be announced and be responsible for posting the new contest. If the new contest is not announced by the 7th of the month, responsibility for posting falls to the second place finisher. Keep it simple and post/vote early so we don't have to obsess over deadlines and time zones.
  • Post a maximum of two entries, each in a separate post. (The host may also enter.)
  • As the purpose of this contest is to get people out and shooting, photos must be taken in the contest period. Please note the date the photo was taken in your post.
  • As a m43 community, we advocate the use of m43 cameras. However, since many of us shoot with multiple systems, we allow photos taken with any camera.
  • Photos receive one point for each "like" (thumbs up), "funny" (happy face), "appreciate" (heart icon), or "agree" (green check mark) and two points for each "winner" (trophy) or "Wow" (surprised face) clicked on the post. The photo with the most points wins the contest. A tie is resolved by the post with the larger number of "winner" and "wow" votes. Submitting a photo to the contest is not required to be able to vote.
Procedures for Winners/Contest Hosts:
  • As a contest winner, you are responsible for posting/hosting the contest for the next month. This is easy and just requires several steps as outlined below.
  • Select the theme for the next month. The theme should be accessible and relevant for everyone. Obscure and difficult themes limit participation and are thus discouraged. Avoid themes related to specific holidays, seasons, geography, etc. Suggested themes include: B&W, Portrait, OOC jpeg, Close Up, Self Portrait, Transportation, Minimalist, Architecture, Long Exposure, Art Filter, Motion, Specific Focal Length, Shutter Speed, Liquid, Reflections, Colour, Calm. Pick one of these or you may pick a theme of your own choosing. Themes may be used multiple times.
  • After you select a theme, post a new thread in "Contests and Challenges" section of the forum. The thread title should read "MU-43 Monthly Photo Contest for [current month, year] - [selected theme]". Copy and paste these rules and post. Also please add the contest theme that you just won to the list. You may wish to include a sample photo to demonstrate the theme (and this will not count as an entry).
  • On the last day of the month, post that entries are closed and voting will continue and be accepted until the 3rd.
  • At the conclusion of voting on the 3rd or shortly after, tally the points
  • Photos receive one point for each "like" (thumbs up), "funny" (happy face), "appreciate" (heart icon), or "agree" (green check mark) and two points for each "winner" (trophy) or "Wow" (surprised face) clicked on the post. The photo with the most points wins the contest. A tie is resolved by the post with the larger number of "winner" and "wow" vote
  • announce the winner and runner-up, being sure to tag them in the post by using an @ in front of their name
  • also send a PM to the winner.
  • Most important thing is HAVE FUN!

The signs and lights on Broadway in Los Angeles definitely made me wonder what it was like when all of the theatres were the place to be...

Thanks for bumping the thread @Brownie! I can't very well expect people to post if I don't myself, so here is my first entry.

Taken August 17th with my Panasonic GX85 and the 20mm pancake. This is a Dodge Monaco I stumbled across. They were produced from the mid 60's until the late 70's but I'm not sure what year this one is.

Simpler times. Taken August 22nd at my Great Nephew's 3rd birthday party. These are blocks I had as a child and he was playing with them.

Great! Thank you. I didn't look at the drop down list. I only saw the word Report.

Also taken today, August 24th.

My grandad actually made this for his children back in the 1920's. :eek-31:
Don't know how much longer the string will hold out.
