There's an old saying the one should suffer for your art, well I have today. I found a location for this weeks Black and White Challenge, the subject of which is Dereliction and decay, that is not very far from where I live. I drove there this morning but found it difficult to park so I decided I would walk there this afternoon. Bad move, I set out at a determined pace up the hill, my legs ached from yesterdays walk but I gritted my teeth and carried on, then my calf muscle stiffened and became painful. I made it to the top of the hill and down the other side, then out onto the road by which time I was begining to limp, the road has no footpath so I made my way along a field edge that was waterlogged only to find that there was no way back to the road at the far end. With a heavy heart I admitted defeat and returned home no photo taken for the challenge or today's blog.

I did manage to get to the photo club tonight to see the excellent print presentation and wonderful talk by Dave Wilcox. So here is a photo of Dave, on the right, talking to Bob, our club chairman, and Malcom, our competition secretary.

Hope you soon recover, Ken. By coincidence I was doing the same sort of thing. After hours tramping around Beamish open-air museum on Sunday, yesterday I set out to find a nature reserve in which there are bird hides I was so kn**kered when I got to the reserve entrance, that I gave up going to the hides. and also took no photos . I also limped back home! Great minds think alike.

Regards,

Jack
