    The story:
    I'm 60 years old, I was in hospital because of tachycardia with atrial fibrillation. My doctor said my weight is a big problem and I have two options: grow up 50cm or get rid of 50kg. And I have to do some sports. That was two months ago. I don't like the idea to be 2.30m tall so I try the second option. I reactivated my 25 years old bicycle. I didn't do any sports last twenty years so I started cycling every day, in the beginning 6km, or walking a kilometer or two.
    From my home I can ride into a more or less flat area or an area with hills up to 200 meters high. In that hills area is a nice brook valley where I was walking with my wife six week ago. This brook looked so nice, fresh and clear as if you can drink that water airily (I'm sure you can) and I said to my wife "One warm day I will drive to this brook and I will cool my feet in it. Maybe even this year."
    The problem: That brook is more than 30 kilometers away from my home with some hills in between.
    I tied four times and gave up every time.

    But here is the photographic evidence I made last friday. Challange completed. :)


    OP6T, no lens, unedited, compressed with famous YaImCo.

    Btw: The brook was f***ing cold, they should let swim some ice cubes in it as a warning.

    The usual info on the contest part
    updated on Monday

    Hello photography friends!

    Here are some older and some newer news. Lets start with the most important links:

    Then, my personally most expected part, the usual "what is a photo?" is not part of the opening post this time. I was so curious to hear the manager´s voice. Hey, no problem, because a longer post (thread!) on that matter is almost finished and will be published very soon. (in ca 10 days)

    About the contest and the new rules

    The most important change is the amount of pictures and posts in each month - from now on. Please all, follow the rules as stated above.

    3 - 3 is easy to remember. A maximum of 3 posts, a maximum of 3 pics per post each month. A background story.

    New is the shame random thread. All posts in the contest thread, that don´t follow the contest rules, will be moved to that thread. Also, all random pics that were posted in wrong sections, will get moved. Want to have a look? September random Shot on OnePlus pics
    If your post has been moved to that thread, feel free to upload your submission again in the contest thread, but ofc make sure to follow the new rules to 100%.

    Also important, but not new:
    • Any content submitted should be your own work and shot on a OnePlus device. Any pictures submitted shall be taken in this month, September 2019. Please do not post older pictures from former times.
    • Ps. If your pictures were taken in the last week of the previous month (August 2019), they are valid for the September contest thread. Ofc you can post them only once, either late in August, or early in September. Not two times in both months.
    The winners from last month will be announced in ca. 10 days. Ofc, after the EXIF data has been checked! We have collected ca. 500 great pictures in August in our preselection, and I want to thank @Bouncer71 and @cdnfarmer for their great help.

    Let me finish with

    my honest personal tips
    • Avoid intense post processing
    • Be better than just a snapshot
    • See the picture before clicking the shutter (thx @cdnfarmer)
    • Avoid unused space and unnecessary elements in your frame
    • Level your pictures
    • Show real life
    • Show unique and original pictures
    • Make sure to post your picture as full image, not as link. (Thx cdn)
    • Check this, thx a million to bouncer and tibi: HOWTO - Upload photos (browser version) by @TibiTibi
    • Please add spaces between the pictures. Multiple pictures should not blend into one. (Thx cdn)
    • Try to avoid just technical stunt photos. Put soul and heart in your pictures

    This are personal tips and suggestions, not official OnePlus demands.

    Have fun, all the best in the photography section, cheers,

    Device Name : OnePlus 7
    Story : The lady here did a fantastic job with my shoe and she did it with a smile. A calming vibe with the whole experience. She may be in her late 50s or early 60s but age is not slowing her down anytime soon. Imagine her will to keep going at a male dominated profession and more so with a smile while dealing with every customer that comes her way. Guess we don't have to go so far in search of motivation huh?!

    Edit: No filter, no edit

    September month started with a beautiful flower which gives so much positivity looking into it. That white always makes me peaceful and cool.

    Captured by my beast OnePlus 6T (stock camera) and not used any external lens.

    Great theme because every nice picture has a great story.
    So let's see what this month will bring,im sure I'll find some nice pics (maximum 3) to post anytime soon.

    Frustrating to see allready a few posts who don't even bother to read the introduction.. Possible to just remove those posts, makes its easier to read for those who care about the entries and stories
