CS #618 - And the Point is?

  1. The usual rules apply: post your pictures taken at any point between Thursday Sept. 13 and Wednesday Sept. 19 your local time; limit to 3 pictures per post; family-friendly; etc.

    Speaking of the theme . . . I hope that you'll interpret it broadly; and photos that "stretch" the theme are especially encouraged! Many photos make a point - some are obvious, some less so. Perhaps a focus point; or a discussion point; maybe a vanishing point or a point of view. Or you can go more literally: such as a pointed object, or a point in a sporting match. Those are simply a few starting points for you to ponder - I look forward to seeing everyone's interpretations! Post early and often! Here are a few to get you thinking . . .

    No, no, gentlemen.
    It's the prototype for left handed cameras. Very rare... ;) :) :D 

    Kind regards

    Very cool West! Great capture!
     
  11. Your point is made with a beautiful scene. Looks like Spring, which I know it is down your way.
     
  12. That's a very inviting scene, Phil, beautifully rendered.
     
  13. No caption needed...

  14. Ouch, Jim! That is dandy with a fine use of DOF.
     
  15. Thanks, Eric. I really wanted the tip in sharp focus, but that was handheld with a macro lens, and my hands aren't that steady. :( 

    Here's another:
