Thank you to everyone who took part in last month's 166th Barnack's Monthly theme, which was filled with more than 1,850 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!

Thank you all so much for contributing by very kindly sharing your photos because it's you who keep Barnack's Monthly going.  Without your pictures there could be no Barnack's Monthly.

The 167th Barnack's Monthly theme for August 2022 is:


This month's theme is any picture that contains something red or the word "red" on its own or as part of another word.

For example, it could be blood, shattered, a red herring, a red post box, a red telephone box, a fire engine, someone with red lipstick, a field of poppies, the Red Baron, a bowl of tomatoes, chilies, red shoes, a red dress, red spectacles, brake lights, Red Rock Arkansas, Red River, Right Said Fred, tired, a traffic light, a Cardinal, a red tattoo, red paint in graffiti, the Union Flag (Union Jack), China's flag, South Korea's flag, the American flag, the 'Tricolour'  French flag, Red Adair, Red Buttons, the Red Arrows, a football tunic with red in it -  it's entirely your choice so let your imagination run free!   

It would be a big 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 because it's interesting to know.

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 (but to avoid swamping the thread would you very kindly please post no more than ten pictures at a time), pictures that have been posted on the forum before, are fine any equipment as long as it 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 threadSo, 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!

No, during the Roman-Catholic meeting at Stuttgart in May 2022, people didn't want to see the equestrian statue of Emperor Wilhelm I.
This notorious "grapeshot prince", who played a key role in having the democrats shot down in 1848 ruled as the worst reactionary the Prussian military state and later on whole Germany under Bismarck and as grandfather of Emperor Wilhelm II. must be seen as a trailblazer of the fascist "3rd Reich" under Hitler.
