Never argue with a stupid person, they'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

At least plenty of this everywhere; can always 'do' a selfie, if I can't get out.

Well, there I was with a bit of free time booked to go and take a picture or two of a few rather decaying things I had spotted locally, and when I wake up the world is all brisk and white. So I took a snap of some oak leaves and added a few overlays to disaster the picture a bit more. The overlays are part of the editing software, so I hope that meets the regs.

Whilst out walking in the snowy park today lots of abandoned sledges - seems plastic does rot and decay if left against a tree :o

With flat grey skies and the white stuff melting rapidly I was really struggling, so here is an old hut.

Put my entry in the chat thread as well when I posted it, but must have forgotten to press the 'post' button, after checking it in the preview mode.

I am in with this:  The Shed.

There is an explanation to my pic about turning beautiful buildings into night-clubs, but I've just realised my explanation might be seen as defamation of character (with good cause), so I shall simply leave it as it is and include here the building for good measure!
