This week's challenge is: Memories.

Memories can be sweet or bitter or bitter-sweet and they can be evoked by many things: a song, a scent, a taste, a photograph, to name just a few. So show us your memories or objects that bring them back. Be as creative as you like.

The challenge begins when posted and will end on Monday, February 17, 2020 at midnight GMT. The winner will be announced shortly after (on Tuesday).

CHALLENGE RULES:

1. Camera: Any DIGITAL CAMERA is allowed, (not just DSLR).
2. Time: Any on-topic photo taken at any time is eligible, although photos that have won other competitions should NOT be entered.
3. Size: See standard P.O.T.N. Image Posting Rules.
4. Post Processing: Do whatever you like and the host will decide if it works.
5. Posting: ONE PHOTO per photographer in each challenge.
6. Details: Show camera model & lens used. Post brief EXIF data including ISO, shutter speed and aperture used.
7. Commenting: Please, NO COMMENTING DURING CHALLENGE. Feel free to comment in this thread after a winner is declared.
8. Content: Keep it clean, and both Family and Work safe.
9. Have questions? PM me.
10. Have FUN!

* THE WINNER ALWAYS SETS THE THEME FOR THE NEXT CHALLENGE, POSTS IT AND JUDGES IT - BE PREPARED! A new challenge should be posted ASAP after you have been declared the winner.

Hellooo?!! Anybody there? Is it that bad of a theme, yeah? If so, sorry!

Here are some examples, to give you an idea maybe.

My LPs bring back memories of my high school days.

All right. Challenge is closed.
And we have a disappointing low turn out. Three images. Really? :rolleyes:

I'm really glad Don entered a pic tonight, so I wouldn't have to choose between two images. But with three images it is still very difficult, especially since all three do a good job with the theme.

Ed: a lovely photo. Nothing like a reunion to bring back memories. And tell a few tall tales maybe? :-P
Lesley: also a lovely photo. I listened to the song. Yes, gives a feeling of nostalgia.
Don: music, one of the best ways to have one's thoughts drift to days gone by.

I have to choose. And decided to choose the pic that needn't an explanation. We only know that the gathered people in Ed's photograph are having a reunion because of the caption. And Lesley's autumn leaves are lovely but need the song. So really Don's picture is the only one that very directly speaks of memories. I see The Beatles' A Hard Day's Night, and I'm right back in school. So I'm giving it to Don. With Ed and Lesley both as runners up.

And HM to all three for the simple fact that you participated at all! Thank you so much for that.

Over to you, Don.

Congrats to Don! I remember many of those musical artists. I chuckled looking at Ed’s reunion shot, lol. Levina, please don’t worry about the low participation. It just happens sometimes. :rolleyes: :-)

Congrats to Don.

I wanted to play, but I really had nothing that was worth posting for this challenge.

Sorry about that, Jack. I'll try to pick a better topic next time. :oops:

The topic was fine. There are some nice photographs and the judging was excellent. I had some RAM chips imaged but the picture wasn't particularly interesting.
