Title: DOOM and GLOOM CHAT 13-20/092020
Post by: jinky on September 13, 2020, 09:39:55 AM
Doom and Gloom

This is the CHAT thread

The rule of 6, the economy is tanked, Christmas looks like being cancelled, no festivals / live gigs. So much doom and gloom around so let`s see you depict a scene that shows us how it is. Any subject that suggests the doom and gloom it`s easy to slip into or even mocks it. Might just be a gloomy picture to sum us up.

PP any way you like.

Pictures to be taken preferably between now and Sunday 20th September 2020, or if you do not have time something from your archives that fits the brief.
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23:59 Monday 21st September 2020.
Poll will be up Tuesday 22nd September 2020.

Just thought I`d bring you back down  :D. Actually I chose it when depressed after hearing the stupid rule of 6 which will scupper a recently booked  family trip to see Donna nook seals if still in place by late November  >:(

Went way back into my archives to reedit and old shot  with my D80. I sometimes think I took better pictures back then with that old gear! Added gloom to change the whole look of one of my old favourites

I have struggled this week. Been really busy at work and was lacking in ideas. As such I am trawling through my archives to try and find something that fits.

Yes, I had to use on from October 6th 2015. Last week weather was the best since May.  :doh:

Still, when the Prime Minister gives his address tomorrow evening then, we will all feel gloomy.  :( :'(

Won`t be much new - 10 pm for pubs and wash your hands. I` more worried about Thursdays announcement and expecting Leeds to be put into lockdown costing me another overnight break in the dales. no money will be lost - just annoying. Missed out on a 2 night stay in Newcastle to see my mum due to their lockdown this week. Luckily i managed to "persuade" the hotel to move my non-transferrable / non- cancellable booking by asking if my partner and I could actually shae a room there when we are fro different households. Did the trick - told Mrs J she`d have to move out if anyone came around checking  :D
