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


Show us Things That Start With "J"


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!

Japanese... in this case the Nikon F Photomic FTn, currently the only Nikon in my collection. The serial number indicates a production date of March 1972. The lens was sold with the camera, a 50 mm f/1.4 non-AI lens. I have the original box and the camera, lens and leather case were sold as a set. The box has the serial numbers of camera body and lens printed on the outside. Esthetically, I think it is one of the most beautiful cameras ever made, a true collectors item. Every once-and-a-while, I'll put a roll of B&W film through it for old times sake.

Thanks. Yes, it was in mint condition when I purchased it several years ago. But upon close inspection, there are definitely signs of use.

There's this little thing about originality. Part of the challenge is to think of a J subject, isn't it, instead of copying the paper of the kid at the next desk?

If enough photographers followed suit, I guess, we could have a jam jam.

I don’t agree with you, OhLook. First of all you thought of jam before teekay posted his pic so you are not copying anything.

And second, the originality lies in how you shoot the jam and not in the picking of the subject. If we all decided to photograph jam this week the pics would still all be different and unique.

I understand these challenges to include thinking of potential photos that fit the theme, whether alphabetical or not. That is, choosing a subject is part of the exercise of creativity. I don't really have to avoid jam just because teekay filled the jam slot, but any jam pics after his would lose the element of surprise.

I was thinking of doing Jets, but a trip to the museum had a juxtaposition, so I've gone with that...
