The theme for the September photo competition is "Something Small" (proposed by Willeke).
Essentially, this covers any photo of something that is small. I would say as a guideline, it should be small enough to pick up (if not attached) and ideally smaller than your hand.
There is no need to use special lenses for your camera but it is allowed.
The photo has to have something to do with travel. Either taken while traveling or of something you need while traveling.
To give you inspiration: Single flowers or several small flowers together. Insects. Toys, including toy trains. Items of food.
You may make your submission as an answer to this post. The standard rules for photo contests apply:
- Only one photo per answer.
- You can make up to three posts (attempts).
- Do not delete posts if you don't get votes: you posted it, stand by it. (You have two more attempts if your first one doesn't work out.)
- All submissions should have a line with when and where the photo was taken.
- The photo has to be taken by the person who posted it, or by a travel partner (needs to be named).
- Keep it nice, non-offensive, and non-NSFW.
- If you disagree with a photo, please consider leaving a comment on it or bringing it up in chat. For the purposes of judging, only upvotes will be considered; downvotes will not affect the score of the photo.
- The photo may have been taken any time.
- The photo competition will begin September 1, 2020, 0:00 UTC, and continue until the end of the month (again in UTC). If there is no tie for the highest number of upvotes at the end of the month, the winner will be announced then; if there is, the voting period may extend beyond the month.
