I have selected Order/Chaos for the theme of this month!
You are free to express your view of the world through any contrasting themes that fit the description; provided you can explain it away convincingly

Same rules apply as on previous rounds (copy-pasta from before):

Photos must be taken during this month
Photos must be taken by the posting member
Photos must be taken with a camera phone
Users post only one photo per entry
Users can change the entry only once
Users must name the phone they used (OS/software would be nice too)

Last three days of this month are for voting. Have fun and enjoy.

Is just one or the other not good enough? I can take a pic of my daughter's room anytime for the ultimate demonstration of entropy.

I'd like to see both sides of it in one picture to qualify.
If you can fit your daughter somehow in superposition between the states it'd be just perfect!

True story: On our Tuesday after-school frogurt date, my daughter was asking about this month's photo contest theme. After I explained what "chaos" was, she said: "you could take a picture of my room". After I finished laughing both at the idea and the coincidence, I said, "no, another member already had that idea, and there needs to be a little order there as well."

Her reply to that was: "I could clean half of it!"

Indeed, that would be an acceptable competition entry then!

Same here.

Maybe we should start a competition about which daughter's room is more chaotic.

My sister's room before she moved to another place... But can't really take a photo of it now since it's empty. I need to somehow take a photo of my life right now, half of it is ok but the other half is not lol.

Order amongst chaos.




Spring break for the kids this year corresponded with my wife's annual medical conference in Orlando.

The setting of this particular photo is the Disney Animal Kingdom Park right outside the Mount Everest roller coaster. Huge crowds are everywhere at peak times in the Disney parks complex. But for really popular rides, there's the "fastpass" system. This allows you to book a ride for a one-hour time period hours, days, or even weeks in advance. But in the midst of the crowds, how do you even find the end of the fastpass line? The answer is, when crowds are truly massive, an actual human being stands with a sign at the end of the line, advancing and retreating as needed -- in this case, it's the man in the scarlet tunic who provides the order in the chaos.

BTW, the same sign-holder system is used on particularly busy pedestrian thoroughfares to urge guests to walk on the right when traversing an area in the parks. (Visitors come from all over the world, after all.) I would have liked to get a picture of the "walk right" sign but, you know, it was too chaotic. Seriously.

BTW[2], the man in the orange Nike "vapor" baseball cap seems to be using the reservation system on his phone as the photo was shot. I didn't notice that at the time.

Edit 3: OnePlus X, SFOS, stock camera.
