Thanks for that one. Needed an excuse to get out my Nikon and macro and have thought of an idea inspired by Brexit if I can do it.

Not quite as I had planned. Discovered Playdough just won`t stand up  so had to dig around in the attic for playmobil and was fortunate to find a red,white and blue one! If there had been a "Back " button I could have gone a little further. First one I`ve shot specifically for the comp in a while. Hoping your fun theme attracts a few more H.

Fun! And perhaps you could also have entered that one in either of the previous two competitions: Hats or Authority.

It's good to see you finally 'fulfilled' your threat! (I am still very much on the sidelines.)

Thanks Jediboy. You return to the competition with a strong contender!

I haven't taken a proper photograph for months now, and I fear, it will be some time yet, before I am ready and roaring to go. Some nice, warm spring weather might help.
