Nice theme H, though my neighbours now think I’m a bit sad, wandering around my car with a camera!!!

After much thought and deliberation I’m in with this:

I said I`d set up the poll for Howard as he is away so hopefully trouble free tomorrow. I have my balloon flight (still trying from last July) booked at 6am in York tomorrow so in the unlikely event of actually getting off the ground be grateful if someone stepped in if I was late / crashed to my death etc

I've voted. I couldn't help thinking though, that none of the entries (my own included) were as attractive from a photographic point of view as Rebecca's IOTW which inspired the topic. I guess opportunities are a bit limited by having only a week's time window to take the shot in. On the other hand, the challenge that the time limit poses is good - makes us think and probably improves our photography. It's fun too....
