*****February Photo Contest Preliminaries Thread #2*****

Come vote for your favorite photos! There are two threads to vote in so make sure you check out both and please help keep these polls kicked.

Poll Thread #1: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10027635734

The theme this month was Back to the Future: Stuff that used to be considered the cutting edge of technology - things, places, etc which at one time were the awesome newest tech on earth and now are abandoned to the past.

This is the preliminary vote on all entries then there will be a final vote based on the results of these two polls.

The winner of the contest agrees to host the next month's contest (or recruit someone else to host the contest), and pick the next month's theme. The host of the monthly contest cannot enter the contest they are hosting.


Note: This contest is posted in GD with permission from Skinner.

35. This one is difficult.

 

I loved both #4 and #6.

These dang things get more difficult as the DU photographers get better.

It's getting to be like picking between the moon and the sun.

39. I really really like the stone shell of that old mill, #5...

but the desolation of the one with the sewing machine had to be my final pick...I hear that room.

We had (and used) an old treadle Singer when I was a kid, the poor thing is still sitting out in the summer kitchen on my folks' property, dead quiet now, just like them.

I also loved the remains of that old powerhouse, #6. It was my first choice before I scrolled on down, ha! The coloring of it is what I think is most striking, the moss...besides I'm pretty sure I've been down there to it, if it's the one I think it is, in Oregon. I've always been a nut for viewing old hydro-electric ruins, the rusted generators, the giant transformers, the quiet turbines.

Every one of these are winners, in my book. Impossible choice!

31. My apologies to #3, In Case of Fire

I picked you. The one I pick never wins. Sorry about that. It's a neat picture though.

34. This is a hard contest

 

#4 I chose because it was so neat, but #6 is also compelling.

It seems bad to pick between them because they were both so awesome!
