Hey Mi Fans!

Greetings photographers! Once again, it's competition time my friends! We had a bit of a change during the summer, where the competition was spread over 2 months, but it's back, and back to normal. The competition will be run the same as usual, and will work like this: Firstly, add your photograph in the comments section of this thread, keeping in mind the details of this months theme, if any. Please be sure to include accompanying information with your photograph. Entrants will have 2 weeks to add their photo. After this, I will choose a maximum of 6 photographs, and will publish a second thread with details of the finalists, along with a poll for members to vote for their favourite. The poll will be open for 1 week. The photograph that receives the most votes will win.

What is this month's theme?

The theme for the October 2019 competition will be


That's correct my friends, you can submit a photo of virtually anything you like, just make sure that it's in monochrome.

The rules for the competition are the same as last month, and can be seen below

Venice shot on Mi 9 Auto with AI i'm using stock camera app, no external editing. What I love about this is that Venice is unchanged and this photo could have been taken 50 years ago.
