« on: August 22, 2010, 12:06:26 PM »
This week the topic is 'Compliments of the season'.

Take a picture that sums up the current season for you. That might be people relaxing on a beach or in the great outdoors generally (or sheltering from an unexpected shower  ;)); or wildlife, plants or insects that are particular to the current season, or a broader landscape or cityscape. Or something I haven't thought of that sums up your own feelings about this time of year.

I think I might be able to come up with something.

Eileen, we are currently hosting the guest from hell - all time is taken up with this, but I have got some shots this week that I think I might fit the bill. But as we don't get rid of said annoyance until tomorrow my entry will be done on Monday I expect.

I see you've posted your now H: very topical.  :tup: I've had a really busy week photographically (including the Strobist meet with Andrew on Saturday and a visit to beautiful Mount Ephraim garden near Faversham on Sunday) so have a few to choose from. Will narrow down my selection by this evening. Intrigued by the sound of the guest from hell...

I had to grab something from my week in Brittany / Normandy and was only allowed to work on one picture. "Please don`t go on the computer all day when we get back". Amazing isn`t it. My wife loves to show our holiday pics but won`t allow me tome from unpacking / dirty washing / cleaning and ironing to process the 500 or so raw files I have to look at. Ah well - she`s back to work tomorrow. If the weather is good I am off on a balloon flight bought for me for my birthday too so should have another few shots to work on. ;)

Happy Birthday Jinky.  :tup:

After much debate I chose this one for the competition, having fun before going back to school at the end of summer.  ;D



It was taken at the Sandwell show and fair yesterday. These girls had been chasing this chap around to crash into him.  :-[

I almost chose this one which is the moment of impact.
