Thank you to everyone who took part in November's Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with a wonderful array of nearly pictures and excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme! Thank you to everyone who helped to make it another successful month by generously posting their pictures and in particular to those people who posted for the first time - I hope you found it an interesting and rewarding experience and I hope it encourages you to share more of your pictures with us!


The Barnack's Monthly theme for December 2016 is: "Statue, standing, still, stationary, or statuesque"


This month's theme is a statue or anything in a state of stasis whether temporarily or permanently.   This could be a triumphal statue, a stationary sloop, a statuesque woman, still waters, a bike against a railing, a train waiting to leave, a hovering helicopter, a man standing on one leg, a horse in a field, Nelson's Column, a still evening, frozen movement, the Louvre, a gondola suspended on a cable, a spinning plate balancing on a pointy stick, Michelangelo's David, the Venus de Milo, Venus over Milan, a balloon hanging in the sky, a De Lorean at traffic lights, a parked Ferrari, a stationary stationery van, a sitting statue - it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free!  It would be a help if you give your picture a title so to help us understand your point of view but it's not compulsory. Members have asked if we'd very kindly name the camera and lens used - if you can remember - because it's interesting to know but, again, it's not compulsory just helpful.


The rules are deliberately loose so go out and shoot with this month's theme in mind or start searching back through those pictures you took oh-so long ago that you'd forgotten about and start posting! It doesn't have to be your best ever shot and it's not a competition so you might surprise the rest of us and yourself - it's just about sharing some pictures, seeing others' take on the topic, and enjoying it!

Everybody's welcome to contribute, any interpretation, any number of posts, pictures that have been posted on the forum before, any equipment as long as it and the photo complies with the forum's rules of either camera or lens or both made by Leica. Please post freely - especially newcomers and please remember there's no judging or criticism (good or bad) in this thread. So, if you'd like to show your acknowledgement or appreciation that someone has posted their picture then instead of posting a comment please use the "Thanks" button that you can find at the bottom right of every post.

Please post away and I look forward to seeing your interesting interpretations of this month's theme.


Note: Moderator Pop has very kindly assembled links to all of the past Barnack's Monthly threads as a single archive that can be found here: Barnack's Monthly Index.  Thank you, Pop!
