Had all sorts of, more or less, creative ideas, but nothing came of it. So here I am, with an ugly street light in a beautiful landscape.

This is my entry

Having been either in bed or shivering uncontrollably with a hideous manflu that Mrs H brought home from work (she was in bed 3 days straight herself) for the latter half of the week, I decided I'd better make a bit of an effort.

So it was out with the tea lights, box of matches, tripod, and a bit of black cloth. Unfortunately they are vanilla scented candles and my hands smell a bit. The sacrifices I make for my art . .

I'd rather bump into a vanilla scented man, than one wielding an axe!

Hope you and the wife (how can she have man flu?) have fully recoverd by now.

I’m in with this, I had an idea which required me to go out after dark to the local church but it started to rain just and to be honest I couldn’t be bothered to get wrapped up, so it had to be an indoor shot.



I hope Mrs H and yourself are feeling better soon Howard.  That ManFlu is dangerious, very dangerious, you look after yourself  ;)

Dosed up  :D  for painful fluisinuses - lots of bugs floating around up here too  >:(  but managed a wee play with a dimmer switch.

Get well soon Andy. Thanks for the wishes, I think we're all about there now on the road to recovery - which is good because we're off to the mountains next week for some R and R.

Reinardina: the standard classification for cold viruses is as follows: sniffle, cold, heavy cold, 'flu*, man 'flu. Women cannot get anything worse than 'flu. Man 'flu is the only kind of cold virus that a man can suffer from. Man 'flu mutates from any one of the milder forms as soon as a man catches it. Simple.  :D
