Very nice. I'd like to know the particulars behind it: time, location, occasion, equipment, and PP.
Again, great job. :)
There are some really cool photos among these submissions. Unfortunately, most of the best have almost nothing to do with the theme of this challenge.
happypoppeye: When I look at these photos I see a lot that are actually just the opposite of freedom ...held back, attached to something, the American flag - symbol of a government which, by definition, makes laws to inhibit freedom...
How exactly does the United States make such laws by DEFINITION? Like all nations, the US makes laws by necessity to restrict freedoms, but they do not do so by definition. The absence of such restrictions is called anarchy. Whether we are the freest nation on earth is probably debatable, but the restriction of freedom is not done here by definition.
Nice Gallery. It looks like you really enjoy your camera(s). I enjoyed browsing the whole collection.
Musicians view their instruments as more than mere tools. B. B. King, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Eric Clapton, and many others named their guitars, cherishing them above their status as inanimate objects. It's only natural that photographers, making art as they do, would experience some emotional feelings about their cameras.
I no longer use it, but I will always have a special place in my heart for my 1975 OM-1.
