Or thinking outside the boxers!!!!

These were pegged outside with black card behind as a contrast. Every time I tried to plan this shot it was windy but today I managed a shot between the breezes. She's painted her bathroom all white and stuck black polka dots all around. Its very impressive and she's showing her artistic side. The red will be the only splash of colour in there. It's to be printed 20" x 16" in a huge black frame with a white mount. Can't wait to see it framed and hung. I tried the other way like she asked (white background, black & white pants) but it had no impact, didn't draw the eye in.

I'm getting rather busy with my art work and I will try to enter  the comp where the theme (like this one) will be fitting with my wall art project. There may be some weeks I miss, however which is a shame. I am going to apply to partially retire which will give me more photography time. Bring it on!

Saw this field on the way home from work the other morning.

May the Force be with you.

Chris, I was looking through my archives last night and found some photos I took with my old canon 1000D and some were poppy fields. The colours at this time of year are stunning, I love the British countryside.

I don't like the couple of efforts I attempted for this week's challenge, so there won't be an entry from me this time.

I want to, but it just feels wrong voting for Chris's underwear  :-[

It's sort of a "strip IOTW competition" - the longer Chris goes without a win...

I'm worried, if she doesn't win, where will it all end?  :D

Haha! You should see the attempt I did yesterday of making a 3D model of the world cup. I took it to work as a prize for the sweepstake and everyone couldn't believe how 'falic' it was!

Seriously, I'm not expecting any votes this week as it was quite 'thinking outside of the box(ers)' as far as the theme goes and as i said before, I will slip in the odd entry if an image I have taken can fit or loosely fit the theme to keep the numbers up,  or I can do a wall art image for the theme. Im hoping to enter most weeks but not every.

As Im looking to partially retire at the end of the year, I need to concentrate on my wall art images. Just sold 3 more and I need to build up a stock for ebay, craft fairs etc.

Im off to Tenerife on Saturday and get back early hours 6 July so I will be quiet the next 2 weeks.

Or better still - just do what ever you want - how will any of us be any the wiser about what you tell us?  ;)

Though people have ended up trending without realising it  :o
