    Weekly Challenge July 15 - 21: Face Mask Selfie

    "A Face Mask Selfie" - (Nikonpup)'s Choice

    Face masks have become a very common sight due to the pandemic. Share your favorite face mask selfie. Let's see how creative you can be! Color, B&W, HDR...anything goes!

    DO NOT SHOOT OR POST IMAGES UNTIL WEDNESDAY July 15
    This early announcement of the topic is to give a little think time, before the challenge begins. Photos must be taken and submitted between 00:00 UTC of the start date and 23:59 UTC of the end date.




    The Rules

    1. Photos must be captured with a Nikon and appear in the thread with EXIF info in order to be considered for the challenge. If the forum EXIF viewer does not show for any reason, listing the camera and capture date/time below the photo is acceptable. Listing exposure info, lens & focal length is encouraged so others can learn.

    2. Any photo submitted for a weekly challenge must be taken during the dates specified in the challenge thread.

    3. Only one photo entry per member for each week, unless otherwise noted.

    4. All regularly active members of Nikonites are allowed to participate, including moderators and administrators.

    Voting

    During the submission & like periods, please click the Thanks/Like button to vote for your favorite images. You can vote for as many as you want! At the end of the week, you will have the opportunity to vote again for the top 3 photos for this challenge!

    There will be no cash or prizes awarded for the Weekly Photo Challenges, unless specifically noted by the site administrator.

    Any photo will be accepted for the challenge. Edited or straight out of the camera, it does not matter. You are left with complete freedom to do whatever genre of photography you wish to do, and your own interpretation of the challenge subject.

    I suppose I could have put a little more thought into it.

    Only about 20 hours left for submissions. Surely you're not ashamed to show your face. Ha!

    I never entered this one, but I had an idea in mind.

    I'll wear a mask where it's required, but I am not nearly stupid enough to believe that a mask with gaps that are typically around 50 microns wide will really offer any protection at all against a virus that ranges in size from 0.05 to 0.2 of a micron. I'll wear a mask, because it's not worth fighting with stupid people over a perceived right not to do so.

    But I was thinking of the great Bill Engvall, and his famous “Here's your sign!” routine, and thinking that if only people like me who were smart enough to know better would simply refuse to wear these stupid masks, then they'd be a perfect real-world counterpart to the signs described in his routine,an easy way for intelligent people to recognize and identify those who are stupid and ignorant enough that we shouldn't trust them or count on them for anything. I was imagining an image of myself, holding out a mask as if to offer it to the viewer, with a caption, in the spirit of Engvall's routine, saying “Here's your sign!”.

    ———

    The following was not taken using a Nikon, but is a view, through my microscope, of an N95 mask. The numbered scale is such that the distance between numbered ticks is about 122 microns. Take note, just above the scale, near the 5.75 point, of a tiny red circle. That has a diameter of about ten microns.

    Here's that circle enlarged. The tiny dot in the middle of it has a diameter of about 0.2 of a micron. The #CoronaHoax2020 virus ranges in size from 0.05 to 0.2 of a micron, so this tiny dot represents the largest possible size of this virus.

    To believe that this mask will protect anyone from any virus is like believing that a chain-link fence can protect you from mosquitoes.
