Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Contraption. As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.


Show us a Contraption, build one, or find one or borrow one...

Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Monday Sunset and the following Monday by Sunset (Whenever that is for you ). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

Really, you're going to build one? That would be so cool. Can't wait to see it!

I have an idea where to find a contraption. It's somewhere in the city. But you never know where the darn thing is! How's that for cryptic? :-P

That made me LOL!
So you're going to have to work for your shot also.. :twisted:

And, yes, I have to build mine as that is what I discovered.
I found something that I had forgotten about and I think it will qualify as a contraption.
Which the dictionary state as...

con·trap·tion

kənˈtrapSH(ə)n

noun
a machine or device that appears strange or unnecessarily complicated, and often badly made or unsafe.

I made this lighting contraption with scrap material when we bought our first fixer-upper house. I had to work on the house, late in the evenings, after my day job. I could not afford to buy real lighting, so I made this. It's not very stable, and when I clamp other lights to it, the wiring become a tangled mess. It has been my companion, on many jobs, for years; and even though I have real lighting now, I still use it.

Thanks. I eventually made a couple of different configurations, but this is the original version.

That's pretty cool, Sibil.

I realised today that there are contraptions in the house as well. I may not need to go out and find one after all!

I have to agree with Joayne here. That's perfect, Sibil.

This contraption is a mechanical winch used to launch remote controlled sailpanes. Our RC club has never used it so we do not know if it is practical or not.

My impractical gizmo is under construction. Hope to be operational this weekend.:-D
