    Weekly Photo Contest: Parks-weekly-photo-contest-parks.jpg

    Bryant Park. Taken with the Nexus 5.

    Whether it's just your neighborhood dog park or one of the many expansive national parks around the U.S. and the world, there are plenty of opportunities to go and find a great public park and take some beautiful pictures. This week the photo contest prompt is "parks," and we hope it encourages you to get out and get some fresh air at a park this week, taking some photos along the way.

    We're expecting more stiff competition this week with plenty of entries, and we'll be giving away Android Mini Collectibles to four winners for their photo entries.

    Entering is easy. Just drop your entry in a post below. Tell us what Android you used to get the picture, and any back story you want to add to it. We'll pick a winner Tuesday (July 1) night at 11:59 PM ET, and announce them on the blog with next Wednesday's contest.

    • Pictures must be taken with an Android device
    • Pictures must be uploaded to the contest thread. I'm not running all over the Internet to track them down.
    • You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software you might have used. Editing your pictures is fine — this is art.
    • Feel free to add a little back story — we want to know how the picture came to be.
    • You must have used a valid email address to register here at AC, so I know how to contact the winner.
    • Only one entry per week per person.


    Good luck, everyone!

    Taken with my Nexus 5 using the Lens Blur mode. This version was "auto-enhanced" by Google+ photos, otherwise untouched. Our neighborhood park (where my daughter has spent many summers playing) is scheduled to be torn down to make way for new (and presumably improved) equipment. In memory of the fine service it has rendered to countless families our neighborhood association through a farewell party last week before construction began, and the depth of field blur seemed to add the right amount of gravitas to the photo.

    Tenaya Lake in Yosemite N.P. Photo taken with Samsung Galaxy S3's panoramic mode, post-processing done with Snapseed.

    I took this photo after a long day of day hiking in Yosemite last summer. We were on our feet all day and on our drive back to Mammoth Lakes we decided to stop off to cool our tired feet in Tenaya Lake. The ice cold water was perfect for our tired, dusty feet!

    I was walking around Citygarden in downtown St. Louis on my lunch break, and came across this sculpture by Bernar Venet. Taken with my Nexus 5 in HDR+ mode, with some post-editing using the Google+ Photo Editing tools.

    Nope This pic was taken from my office with an HTC One M8 (no filters, only cropping). Don't know if it counts as a park though.
