I have to admit that I am finding this one a bit conceptually difficult - haven't even come up with a 'do-able' idea yet, let alone get around to taking a picture.

It's amazing how many things I thought were square actually aren't when looked at critically.

Hmmph.

Lmao  :beer:

now decisions decisions, I have been doing this long enough to have learnt to take 1 photo and go with it rather than take a load and fuss over which to enter :)

decided on a bit of colour, although I do like the black and white version too lol :)

Well I've posted my first entry - I have not long finished a 15 hour day  :o  :-\, so couldn't even begin to think about how to post a pic here, so just put a sized copy on photobucket.  This original is larger but again too tired to work out how to link to it ... the couple of glasses of wine don't help LOL!  :beer:  :doh:  good luck all!

Sorry, you've completely lost me there. In my experience a couple of glasses of wine ALWAYS help!  :D
