Don't worry - I have something in mind but I need a little daylight to shoot it in.

Actually, having seen the weather forecast...

I like the bike.

I have seen a full size, wooden bike in the past but did not have a camera with me.

Totally useless of course except as a 'talking point'.

No more or less useless than any other life-sized sculpture. Bit tricky to display on a bookshelf though I'd guess...

Am I the only one who's reminded of Day Of The Triffids by Darkmunk's picture? Very spooky!

Shed by serendipity - Now that is shed heaven. I could happily live in there . hopefully the bit we can't see contains a whole bunch of tools and bits of junk to make into stuff. Happy days.

Hi Darkmunk,Triffids also crossed my mind....I do see though a few leaves on the top branches.This got me a wonderin whether you have any pics of this ''amazing beast''in full spring/summer glory.
Although it may be that she,(it looks like a she),moves around a bit and wasn't there previously,:
PS.Any sign of the Mother Ship? Tony-o

Te he... yeah I think you're right about the gender - she sure looks cantankerous enough!
Oops! I'm sorry, just slipped out... sorry, shouldn't have said that, sorry, I'll never say that again, god I wish I could take that back, never live this down...

Haven't shot the creature any other time, but I'll get back out and track her down a few more times over the next year, watch this space.
Looks like ash.

I'd decided on what to photograph for this competition, and spent some of Monday night having a go. Trouble was it just didn't seem to be working - this was probably the best shot:




I wanted it to jump out of the screen, but it doesn't. Plus I'd initially thought the dragon was wood, but having had a close look I don't think it is. So I gave up and had a quick go at a radiator cover instead:




I had trouble finding an angle that didn't look boring, plus the blown highlight problems that needed time to fix, so I then gave up on that and chose one I'd taken the previous weekend. Hope I did the right thing...

It's probably academic anyway, I think Darkmunk's got it sown up, although others are pretty good too. I'd be more specific, but with this format of competition I can only see some of the photos at work - the rest are blocked.

Robert.
