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


We're looking for Locks and/or Keys


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!

When I first read the theme I was thinking of something more traditional made of metal, but that's rapidly changing. Then I remembered a recent visit to a hotel room required the use of a card key to open the door. The other cards in my wallet are "keys." Several cards are "keys" for purchasing goods and services. One is a lifetime key to the National Parks. Another is a key to entry at a museum. One is a key to not being locked up if I am stopped while driving. ;-)a

To me the 1999 Toyota card key is symbolic of the past inasmuch as it will open a mechanical door lock and start the engine.

Then there is always the irony of a modern "keyless entry" system requiring a "key" card. :rolleyes:

Tim, that's certainly a creative interpretation.

I kind of think we had keys as a theme before, but maybe it was for the G-series challenge, or maybe I'm imagining the whole thing.

It may have been a bit of a stretch. :oops:

The Toyota key card made me do it! That's my story and I'm sticking to it! :-D

That's my "dressed up and going out" wallet. My regular wallet is 38 years old and falling apart. :oops:

Great start of the week, guys!

I too love your interpretation, Tim. They are keys indeed.
