Barnack's Monthly for April 2017 is: "Worn"

Recommended Posts

Advertisement (gone after registration)

Thank you to everyone who took part in March's Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with a wonderful array of more than 800 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 April 2017 is: "Worn"

 

This month's theme is "Worn", so your pictures should include something that's worn as in 'wearing out' and not new, or something that's worn as in clothing or headwear etc, or something containing the consecutive letters "worn".   This could be a worn tyre, a bandana, worn-out curtains, a wearing fan-belt, a wall that needs painting, a cricket bat with tape holding it together, shiny new Gucci shoes worn by a model, a matching Gucci handbag, tribal dress, lederhosen, an old, mangy-looking guard dog at a wrecking yard, an ageing camera, worn workman's tools, a classic car, a former Maltese bus, a saddle worn for a gymkhana event, the old worn face of a grandmother, the worn hands of a seamstress, garlic worn to ward off vampires, a brooch, military medals, an old Singer sewing machine, a chopping block with the scars of age, a warrior bearing the scars of battle, black lacquer that's worn away to reveal shiny brass beneath, mittens worn to keep the hands warm, the worn rocks on a shoreline - 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.

      Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 136th Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with more than 1,350 pictures, excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme.  Also, 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 February 2020 is: Something silver.
      This month's theme is any pictures containing something silver or that has the word "silver" in it.
      It could be silverfish, a silver fish, a silver salver, The Lone Ranger's horse, a silversmith, a Silver Surfer statuette, a silver-haired lady, 29 pieces of silver, the entrance to a silver mine, a silver balloon, silver-plated cutlery, Quicksilver (Mercury), a silver bangle, silver earrings, silver shoes, Silverstone race track, a silver sea, Phil Silvers, Silver Canyon, silver tinsel, a silver spoon, Silver Spoon sugar, a silver trophy, a Rolls Royce Silver Cloud, Sterling Silver, a silver medal, Silver Island, silver moonlight, a chromium-plated thing, a silver M3, an Airstream caravan, silver solder, a silver chalice, a silver clutch purse, silver cogwheels, a silver high-rise building, a silver dome on a cathedral, a silver smartphone, a silver statue, a silver studio umbrella - 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. 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 just helpful.

      Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 132nd Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with nearly 500 pictures, excellent ideas and interpretations of the theme.   Also, 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 October 2019 is: Stone or rock.
      This month's theme is any pictures containing stone or rock in some form (for example marble, gravel, pebbles, sand boulders etc), or the words "stone" or "rock" by themselves or as part of another word.  Stone or rock must be its natural form so brick and concrete etc don't qualify I'm afraid although rock music would.
      It could be a stone wall, stepping stones, bedrock, a stone's throw, rocking a baby to sleep, a rocking chair, Rock Around the Clock, the Flintstones, the Stone Roses, headstones in a graveyard, the stones used in Teppanyaki, hail stones, a whet stone, a stone church, a poster of AC/DC's lead singer Brian Johnstone, a stone circle, gemstones, a poster of Joe Walsh's 'Rocky Mountain Way', rock-a-billy music, rock lobster, The Rocky Mountains, a rockery - 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. 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 just helpful.
