2022 Photo Contest
« on: June 07, 2022, 10:16:37 PM »

Let's start a thread for the 2022 Photo contest

================
RULES:

To be eligible, the photo needs to be somehow spintop related, taken in 2022, and either taken by a member of the board or featuring a member of the board. If the photographer is not a member the prize goes to the player in the photograph. Otherwise it goes to the photographer. The winner will be selected by a poll on the board. Deadline to nominate a photo is December 31, 2022, 23:59:59 GMT-11. Voting will take place the first week of January.

That's it as far as rules. We recommend that those proposing a picture also give them a name/title/caption. This administrator reserves the right to give it a name or caption if none is given  ;D

Previous winners were:
2010: Kevinm (yocephus) with Leggy Corkscrew
2011: Takeshi with Takeshi's World
2012: Neff with Top Face
2013: Hrosik with Dizzy Giraffe
2014: Mark Hayward with Boomerang
2015: Jay with: Eli sees dots
2016/7: Segundo with: Trompos en el cielo
2018: SpinLynn with: Spin Joy
2019: Jim in Paris with: Sunset Spin
2020: Jay with: Big boy levitation
2021: DiegoTrompo with Clouds

==================

These are the first photos I propose:

Venice by Cuper



The rules say it should be credited to the photographer, who was Cuper, but I feel I had a lot to do with this one: Cuper was actually taking the photo with a mini cuper laying on the side and not spinning, as he was afraid it could fall into the canal. I thought it was silly to have a non-spinning top, took out my Giulia, threw a boomerang and placed it on the bridge . . .

Trentino Air by ta0



This is the village (Por, Pieve di Bono) in the Trentino mountains in which one of my great grandparents from my mother's side was born. I arrived by car and stopped to take a photo of the village name on the wall of the first house with Figaro spinning on my hand. At the same time a car was parking on the house across the road and a woman came out with some groceries. She looked at me curiously and I took advantage to ask her to help me take the photo. She agreed and after she took it I explained to her why I was there. She then asked the last name of my mother, and lo and behold was the same as hers! Out of 150 families in the village, 3 have that last name. She ended up inviting me to have tea with her mother. Thanks Figaro!

Today we made a small excursion with the family to a place nearby that has a look out point on some enscarpment where you have a nice overview of the surroundings. The special thing about it is, that the floor of the terrasse is made of glass, so you see the forest below you directly from above.
I felt that I had to throw one of the tops I brought along  on that terrasse.  I went for the  transparent mini Cuper that I also got from Jim.

Nice location Armando! Although I haven't found tops very compatible with beaches (wind blows the string and sand kills bearing tips), I still try to mix my favorite hobby with my favorite place.

Please, notice that if you nominate many of your photos for the contest, they will be competing against each other and dividing the votes. I wouldn't submit more than 2 (or a maximum of 3) photos.
