One perhaps feels a trip to Brum coming on to the addictive Selfridges Store.

Great subject... It can think of lots of great design icons, but it's finding them in the next few days in decent light in such a way as to make a decent photograph rather than a record snap. Still...
Best wishes,

I'm warming to this idea. At least this time I won't require a tripod.

Would it be bad form to enter photos of my watch in two successive competitions?

Alternatively, in honour of the iPad thread, I am considering which bits of my Apple gear qualify as icons

Well Tim, that is for you to decide

Am I a Rolex fan or have I seen enough of Rolex watches in recent weeks :

It didn't make it into the final picture but it was used to take it - one design icon shooting another.

I had a few icons in mind but hefty has included the bloody lot in his picture. Not sure what's left now...

Meccano, paperclips, Leica M3, the Union Flag, road signs, a London Underground map, Zippo lighter... I actually started a list but had to stop when I realised I'd never cram them all in lol

Wow - Hefty's Trip 35 looks like a very nice early one. I was contemplating photographing mine and although it must be a lot newer ( 1978 ) it looks a lot more battered. I guess some more thought is needed
