What a shame this wasn't last weeks subject, as the binmen have been round and collect the various Sofas, chairs and table that had been dumped on the pavements.  :o

I've been out of the game for a while. Need to take some time out and try to get back. Will try to get involved this week.
May the Force be with you.

Nothing from me this week; I've been out and about with the camera, and in the city centre as well, but never thought of street furniture. Sorry, too pre-occupied.

Chris, will you remove your comment from the ENTRIES box in next week's competition? I've already copied it into the chat section, but cannot remove the original.

I know that I set this one, but I haven't had a spare moment this week. The house has been full of people all week, and a lot of that time it would be fair to say has been characterised by excessive alcohol consumption and endless jam sessions, culminating in a rather epic party last night.

I should have sobered up enough to set up the poll though  :)

That's a much better excuse than mine. I simply forgot, even though I was out with the camera, trying to shoot ghost pictures.

Sorry you didn't sell the camper.

I specifically went out for the ghosts, and actually sat on some street furniture, without remembering I had to photograph it!

At the moment I have two men taking my old kitchen apart, so not really in the mood for photography. I did have a go at ICM on Saturday evening though, and have one shot, that might do.
