    What is a photo? A reflection.

    Much more important than how the camera takes and processes a picture is the question to ourselves: why do we take that picture.

    A picture is a reflection of light, but not only that. It's also a reflection of life. Our life. When we take a picture, we are there, and so are the objects that are seen in the picture. The objects that we click are a part of our world, and reflect our personalities. They reflect - us!!

    In this month the challenge is, to reflect about yourself, and take personal pictures. Pictures that tell a story.

    Take pictures of items, that belong to your father, to your mother, to your brother or sister, to your children, and to yourself. Take a picture of an important toy. Take a picture of your house, your car, your bicycle.

    What is important for you, that you want to show us?
    Beware. Don't show too much. Show only insides that you want to reveal.


    1) Post only good pictures.
    2) If you are not sure what that is, read and learn about it from last month's opening post. Shot On OnePlus August 2020 - Landscapes and Water
    3) Follow tip #1
    4) Avoid telephones, pets, people, food, waterdrops, sunsets, landscapes.
    5) Your chances to win are better with a nice and short personal story about the object.

    The picture above shows an inukshuk.
    Inukshuks give directions or information to help guide a person (especially in remote areas).

    • 1 winner per week, 4 winners per month who will receive the OnePlus Buds

    • 3 pictures max. per post, 4 posts max. in the whole month
    • All pictures must apply to the theme of Personal Items
    • All pictures have to be taken within the current month, maximum is the last week of August.
    • Terms and Conditions applied. OnePlus reserves the right to request original photo files before fulfilling prizes if plagiarism is suspected. The photos that can not be verified are disqualified.

    Additional Reading
    How Do We Select Winners?

    The pre-selection team
    consists of: @Bouncer71 , @cdnfarmer , @hennes , @otto2 , @script , @TibiTibi , and @woSch . We check all pictures of the contest, discuss, which we think are the best, and collect them in a separate thread. Then this group of experts, plus OnePlus staff members, go in a second-round through that collection and nominate the 4 or 5 best pictures of the current week. Out of this elite, the final weekly winning picture gets selected. It‘s really a long and careful process.

    Finally, the selected picture has to get checked! Therefore it's needed to contact the person that has posted the picture, ask him or her to send in the original uncompressed file, to get the EXIF data checked. Only after that final check the winning picture can be announced in the forum. And again, it's never settle.

    A Reflection of a Life!

    Story 01

    "Lantern and Radio"


    Lantern: The lantern provides light. Light, in its context helps lead the way forward, towards the future and pushes aside the surrounding darkness!

    Radio: The prime purpose of radio is to convey information from one place to another through the intervening media without wires.

    This both is not only object this both objects are feelings, My grandfather gives it to my father and my father gives it to me! We are still using this both objects!

    In my country people are still using radio and they are getting benifits of it in emergency time, we are still listening news and old songs in radio!

    Old is Gold!

    Story 02

    "FOOTBALL IS MY LIFE "Well guys im a football freestyler we wear these studless boots which will increase our agility and balance while showing some cool tricks in football the above pics r the adidas samba vintage collection which is so rare these days !!! well I'm a fan of these samba collection boots by adidas which my father bought me for scoring 90% on all subjects.i used to play so much football on our streets with the adidas messi edition ball so that's why the ball is in the wear and tear comdition .I can proudly say football is a symbol of love . football is not only a sport but all life basic needs r in football like when u pass the ball to ur side that showcases the teamwork , whenever u running on the pitch our body maintains a high fitness level which is necessary for an athlete. but during the lockdown days we cant even play football properly due to police patrol vehicle checking all the streets whether there is anyone in the street!!but we'll play football despite the rules imposed on lockdown bcoz that's the footballers attitude !!well I can finally say football is my passion!!

    STORY 2: said:
    THOUGH I have a crazy interest In football and am a football player ,I am a lover of 🏏 cricket, watching cricket in tv I like the most !!
    as an Indian it would be a disgrace for me if I am not a lover of cricket !
    throwback to 2011 when I was so much into the ipl and so was busy collecting cricket attax cards !! remembering anyone these cards ??
    these cards I love so much !! these gold cards,silver cards and the normal ones are the concept of this cricket attax . rules of playing this game : each player have their own set of cards its like playing uno I'll place one card and select my cards best attribute eg. 100- batting and if my opponent has less than 100 batting I will win in this part and take away his card .like this a whole set of this will happen when one player doesn't have cards in his stack he becomes a loser and the opponent becomes the winner!!!
    so cherishing of these memories ,gold cards were so rare and always excited when I see the gold cards!!

    This photo is taken on my FIRST day of college when I was feeling bit nervous and lonely and I was thinking about how 4 years of engineering is going to pass where I don't have any contacts . spending 4years at one place is a challenge.but on 1st days itself many students were started noticing my OnePlus 6 as it was flagship during that year and nobody was having that beast in the class.many student started asking me about the camera, photo quality,gaming,design,and performance etc.and which lead to many conversations with other students of my class and this conversation turned into friendships.and now I'm in THIRD year of my engineering degree and those friends are turned into best friends.and whenever there used to be any function or event which required photoshooting student use to point out that I'm having best cameras and I used to click photos.i guess this happened only because of OnePlus 6 that day of my college.
    OnePlus 6 became the point of conversation in every class I used to attend and that's how I made contact with many students.i was feeling like wow how suddenly I'm able to make friends.i'm planning to take similar photo on the last day of my college on the same spot and same location to remember those times.
