    Posting a reminder about the KCC Cooking Contest ongoing right now. Deadline is May 19th at 16:00 EST.

    The theme for the contest is Sandwich with Side Dish. Since you enter via photography, makes sense to shout it out here I suppose :caticon

    Anyone interested can check the link .

    I know this is probably not the exact place to ask but is there like an old photographs discussion where there are tips/ideas to make a collage just from old photographs and other momentos

    Thanks will try to gather more information but still trying to phrase how its going to look (ie. How many old photographs, cropping together, having lots of bits of nolstagia thrown in, privacy and confidetnialty issues, etc) I have to consider lots of things its more like a project

    Have you thought about making a collage or an album for your own records or for showing, I am not sure what the purpose of it might be, and present the old photographs in a polaroid form with the polaroid frame. It might look very cool and fit the theme and atmosphere. If that's what you are looking for

    Just a bunch of ideas on the burner nothing concrete, yes want it to be proof of life and could even have present day poloraid (I know someone who has an oldstyle one lol) and taking a polaroid of me holding some photos or something. Its really abstract right now and am going to take it slow to develop it, could be a good side summer project and also throw in an old fishing photograph, many options to go with.

    @Ashen-Shugar I think you need someone with graphic skills to help make those ideas come true.

    Yeah its like that but way more random, like everything will be done with an old scanner, but everything will be kept original as possible not dressy but lots of cropping. Its really hard to explain, like want to add in the mix 80s stuff, a certain Peanuts cartoon special, some print-outs, old comics stuff like that. Havent pinned down what exactly what i'm going to do.

    PotW 65 will be Freestyle so the theme that follows it will be the typical open to anything theme. Not sure if that will sway anyone's opinions or interests in a theme suggestion.

    I'm not sure what people are going to be interested in doing. It's hard for me to tell if the recent activity dip is because of themes or because people are just getting busy. Close-Ups should be a fairly simple theme that's open to basically whatever as long as it's well, up close, but it sits at 3 entries with a little over a day to go.

    There's been a dip since Spring had 9 entries and Monochrome had 10.

    I don't know how to word it properly, but how about "Self" as a theme? So it would be something like taking a picture that tells something about you. Could be interesting to explore.

    As a theme I think it's fine I'm just trying to think of a way to title it without giving off the impression of it being a selfie or self-portrait type of contest. "Self" or "You" gives off that type of vibe to me but also convey it better. It reminds me a little of where it was interpretive, and I asked entrants to add a few words to the entry just in case it wasn't clear where the 'routine' came in.

    I might just go with "Something About You" if we can't come up with a decent title for it and try to explain it more in the OP.

    If you are using an Android phone, and you are not satisfied with your phone's default camera app, you may want to try this. It is a custom camera app that is based on Google's Pixel line phones. It produces sharp, colour-accurate pictures and has tremendous low light capabilities, meaning you will be able to take better pictures at night or in indoor environments.

    Check the link for your phone model and download/install the corresponding .apk file.

    Going to making a points change to the Photo Series contests along with the change to the Banner contests in GotW. Photo Series already awarded more points but 1st Place will now receive 11 points instead of 9. 2nd and 3rd places will remain the same.
