NEW Theme! Abandoned Shit Weekly Contest - №.17 - 'Vehicles!' #aswcontest

in #aswcontest3 years ago

Good morning, fellow appreciators of abandoned beauty. Well, after sixteen weekly ASW contests, we're about to start revisiting some old themes. This week comes from week №.3, but we had a special guest judge for it... not this time around though. This time it will be all me and I'm excited to do so! Lets dive in!:

The Contest:

This is NOT a photography contest. The subject matter is what's being judged with the Abandoned Shit Weekly contest, not one's skills with a camera. Honestly, I just want to see some cool abandoned shit. lol HOWEVER, as with any photograph, the "wow factor" can certainly be enhanced with a technically sound execution. Simply put, winners won't be chosen strictly on artistry.

The Prizes:

1st Place = 10 x 100% Power upvotes at (near) 10,000 SP
2nd Place = 5 x 100% Power upvotes at (near) 10,000 SP
3rd Place = 3 x 100% Power upvotes at (near) 10,000 SP

The Theme:

This week's theme = VEHICLES! Any form of transportation. Cars, trucks, motorcycles, bicycles, trains, airplanes, buses, boats, or barges and everything in between! Lets see some rotten, forgotten vehicles!

The Rules:

Rule #1 = Your abandoned shit photo must be posted using the tag #aswcontest for one of your tags. This is crucial so that your entry can be seen/found!
Rule #2 = Your photo must be taken by YOU. If you take an imagine from the internet and use it as your entry into this contest, you will be disqualified and I will flag you.

Rule #3 = Only ONE entry per user, per week. Save some content for future contests! However, multiple images of the SAME object or place in your entry post is OK.

Rule #4 = Tell us what we're looking at! You don't have to write a novel, but let us know what the picture is of, and where you found it. That's the most interesting part! Equipment and camera settings can be included at your discretion, but is not necessary.

Rule #5 = Stick to the weekly theme!.

The Time:

When = New ASW contests will start on TUESDAYS and will end at 11:59pm EST on SUNDAY. Winners will be announced on Monday with awards distributed then as well. I figure it's a good way to start the week!


HELP! - I'd really like this contest to become an established, weekly feature. Resteeming the official contest announcement post here would be a huge help in getting the word out, though you do not HAVE to in order to participate in the contest. I'm just asking as a favor. Also, just mentioning the contest in/on your entry post would help a lot!

^^^Here's the photo I used for the contest logo above. I believe its the chassis from an old truck, likely from the 1920's or early 1930's. I found it among the ruins of an old ghost town in Death Valley called "Leadfield".

I went for a walk and found nothing... then I remembered a photo I took 2 months ago and it fits this perfectly. Here it is:
Old Abandoned Steamroller in Bragança, Portugal

Here is my entry. This one is sitting not too far from the town I grew up in, in northern Illinois.


Oh, I like this one!

Are these abandoned enough or should they rot a bit more before they qualify?

Entry for #aswcontest N°. 17

Taken in the last free place in America...Slab City.

Resteemed! I hope I can find some interesting abandoned vehicle of some kind...

The remains of old boat not far from Aswan, Egypt. Shot while cruising up the Nile from Luxor.
What I like here is a white Ibis, a God of Wisdom, maybe thinking about the destiny of this boat and ways of life...

Enjoy the scenery :)
