Hopefully this isn't too morbid, thought it was an interesting contrast to last weeks competition.

Better than half dead, fatally wounded or barely alive things :)

Hmm - I`ve got a dead mouse in a trap shot that got me into a lot of trouble on a Facebook group  :P. I did it as  a lead in to challenge some pretty inappropriate shots of street beggars that had annoyed me . Suffice to say the poor taste beggar shots seemed to them to be  far more palatable to them  and  in less bad taste. Not sure how far to go on here with this theme as i don`t want to offend here. :-\

Doesn't have to be a dead animal Paul, if that makes you feel uncomfortable. Plenty of dead trees about, and we've got a couple of dead cars in the woods nearby. :)

I guess if it doesn't work anymore its 'dead.'
At this rate I'll be dead before the end of the weekend, I have just broken the vacuum cleaner by getting a sock stuck in the pipe. If I don't get it out I'll be dead!!

Had to go for an archive shot - tried with some dead sunflowers, but the images were just too lacking in dynamic range - too dull. Then I tried some seashells, but again they looked rather naff to me, so End of the Rose it is:

Maybe she is trying to tell me something.

My entry is a bit on the macabre side. I do hope that it does not cause offence to anyone, as thats certainly not my aim.

Ah, I appear to have made a faux pas. I have put my photo in the chat thread but not in the entry thread.  :doh:

Stick it in the entries quickly - for me. I`ve just voted unfortunately but before another one is cast. I`m sure no one would mind.

If I'm honest I did consider putting it in the poll, but then read the rules again and didn't want to break them. I must have been distracted by something.
Thanks though.
