I popped in to see what was going on, disappointed only to see two replies, but turns out they are both superb, especially Martin's Socialist Realism effort. The only difference being that Socialist Realism featured strapping youths, not west country folk overdosed on beer and pasties.

Make that 3!

Steel, buried. An abandoned Mercedes 300 SD in the ghost town of Richmond Hills. Once one of the most desirable and wealthy neighbourhoods on the island with large villas, hotels and swimming pools. It's been covered in layers of ash from Soufriere Hills Volcano, Montserrat. The area was abandoned in the 1990's, but much was left behind. Nature is taking over.

Soloist, I can't see a picture - just a blue box question mark.

Yes - I'm away with only my phone to work with so I can't do a bit code. I'm going to just stick to URL and tidy it up when I'm back tomorrow. Thought I ought to submit as I'd commented about keeping the time to submit down!

We always used to manage with 2 weeks. It gives a certain impetus. If the majority want a longer lead, go with it but the number of entries is not generally proportionate to the number of weeks the title is up for.

Sorry, been busy.

It's got to be Martin's tractor. Great subject, great light, the grim determination on the driver's face, or has he spotted a pub or pastie in the far distance?

Well done. Maybe it just reminded me of this lovely book

Comrade I thank you.

In the spirit of the Revoluti^^^ your comments, here's a Konstruktivist take:



shameless Bourgeois image manipulation via 'Prisma' on iOs

New theme to follow when I've thought of one.


PS. re: the example posted in your setting of the theme: I took several images varying only slightly from that. A wonderful, profound, thoughtful, kinetic and entirely-unsettling work of art.

I missed the rather excellent homage to Socialist Realism. Excellent. You must be an excellent artist or have some good software.

The work by Kadishman rather took me aback. I'm used to seeing one go his goats in front of me in my living room. The whole setting, not shown in the image and probably beyond photography, is pretty jaw-dropping.

I went to Berlin with a Leica M10, Leica 35/f2 and a change of underwear (and my wife and kids). I was trying to get some grain at f/16 and ISO 12500, but it wouldn't play ball. Bloody useless camera.
