Just realised that not one person has commented about this thread! Power - I have a couple of planned shots in mind this weekend. How's everyone else doing?

Been too busy with other things. Unless something hits me (powerfully) in the face, when I happen to have the camera at hand, there will be nothing from me.

Don't you use power tools for the fence?

Yep, got to strike when you can Chris, more poer lines are ok though as the picture would not be the same.

The sun came out this morning. A lovely crisp day for a visit to the local car/motorcycle club monthly meeting. Lots of interesting stuff for a car/bike nut like myself. This grotty El Camino caught me eye, so I'm in with Grunge Power:

Sadly, I will not be entering this week - have spent the last few days fighting a miserable cold from the bed (I'm not allowed to say Man Flu - Mrs B's orders), and then having the grand kids dropped off this morning just for one of them to keep decorating the living room with last nights meal  :-X

Sometimes, you just get it all wrong :-( Next should be ok though, I'm hoping the skies will be the limit  :tup:

My idea didn't work. The new solar farm locally that I had intended to photograph was crawling with workmen when I went down there earlier today. This meant a last minute rush looking around the home for something suitable. I'll have a look tomorrow and see if I've got anything I can use.

Just posted for next weeks theme, before posting for this weeks. How weird!

I wanted hubby to 'pose' using a dumbbell so I could capture the strength and power in his arm. Was going to use white background and do it as high key, however, he had a little too much 'after defeat' ale and fell asleep, refusing to wake for the shot! So I had to use my other idea.

I have posted 'Blow Your Fuse' as my 'Power' entry.

Should have posted a picture of him drunk asleep and titled it, 'The Power of Ale' !  :2funny: :2funny: :legit:

Decided on this. Bit of a last minute rush but thought I had better enter as I'd set the theme.

sorry, no entry and a bit absent at the moment, started a new job and our camera club's 60th anniversary have taken priority so the camera has taken a little back seat. Should be back soon

In was wondering where you were.
Good luck with the new job.

I was expecting a powerful shot from you, of the local weather. Or has it cooled down a bit?

Thanks Chris.

I managed it, but the voting buttons are at the top as opposed to next the the photos. Not quite sure how this happened. I guess it doesn't matter??

Yes only they can do that for you. Nice job on poll. No entry from me this week as just too chaotic. Try and get back on track for next week.
