Just finished a toblerone last night before I saw this. Back home after 3 weeks away so will try and get a shot for this weeks comp as I am woefully out of touch with CC, flickr, facebook and mankind in general ;)

Welcome home Paul. This retirement lark is just like one long holiday to you, isn't it  :tup:

When I made the observation about triangular chocolate I thought of Toblerone, and you eating the props. Those were the days eh? Mind you, nostalgia's not what it used to be  :)

Yep that`s the intention. My little photography business is suffering though. I turn down as many jobs as I do for being away just now. Sue keeps telling me to remember it`s just to pay for the trips and extras but I have to be around to get them.Doing a handful of free shoots / stock supply has just got me 2 months advertising for free in a local rag so it`s as well I am not out of the country again until February.
Don`t tell me I am the only one who eats the props. In Spain I was asked to ensure I got each tapas as it came in a really nice restaurant in Valencia. Trouble was with the wine and the need to get in quick to get my share I only got the first three out of 8. Ah well - tasted good anyway  :)

Stayed well clear of edible triangles and went for the over the top approach. I'm in with this one, a part of the Carnival building in Southampton. I've given the clear strong lines a nice feminine colour.

You could start by freeing your wife and Barbie. If they're still alive ...

Have a good weekend!

Oh dear, I'm afraid triangles were not top of my list.  I went out with good intentions this morning and thought I'll easily find a triangle in central London, but got so carried away with the emotion of the day, that I completely forgot.  So, a rather desperate attempt to find something triangular from today's bag.  Will try harder next week :-[

Seems all of us have been to  a remembrance service. Thank goodness I already had entered my triangle shot. On the 'other site' I actually changed my original entry for one I took after the service.

I had a confusing shot of about a million triangles from under the pier at Brighton but thought that the shot I've entered a bit more like it :-\

Didn't have a decent shot this week, as we only had one day of sunshine on Sunday. The rest of the week it was dull and cloudy.  :'(

Not a triangle in sight I'm afraid, well not any worth photographing. :-\

I 'shot' an officer on his way to the Remembrance service, whose marching legs made a triangle with the ground. Didn't realise it till I saw Howard's entry; till then I was taking the theme too literally.
