Okay it's definitely getting harder to come up with themes and is probably why we seem to have a running joke in the group that nobody wants to win. Smile

A little later than I would have liked but the new theme is "Any Form Of transport". An easy one this week and open to interpretation for instance, Phil's photo from the last challenge would work transporting power or food on a spoon/fork would also work as it's being transported. Of course public transport works just fine. Smile

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. YOUR IMAGE MUST BE TAKEN AFTER THE THEME IS ANNOUNCED.
3. The image must be uploaded in a comment in this thread by 8pm (UK time) on the following Wednesday.
4. Images must be B&W (or sepia toned).
5. Only one upload per member (or Malc gets busy deleting earlier entries).
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week's challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. If you can't find any method of transport then On yer bike!! (That will qualify for the theme) Smile

For new participants - please be aware that should you win, you will need to set a new challenge and judge it after 'closing time' the following Wednesday.

A narrowboat halfway through the Bingley 3 rise locks, West Yorkshire. The locks raise the Leeds - Liverpool canal about 9m.

The point at which the Severn Bore fizzled out and they had to transport themselves up the river seated rather than standing!

Back again and while there are only four entries this week they are all a nice variation on the theme.

So now in order of appearance a few notes on the entries:

Dave – Your image is definitely on a par with all the other entries. As for your subjects golfing skills it looks like he's just coming out of the rough so he certainly has a fairway to go.

Phil – A narrowboat and brings back a few memories of when my dad bought a small boat and we used it a few times to go along the River Medway. Then we moved house and didn't get the chance to use it again.

IL (All hail) – He looks like his afternoon surfing isn't as much fun as he expected and he's been caught at the worst point. I wonder if he realises that we are having a better time surfing than he did.

Malc – Pedal Power and cyclists are much braver than me. My car failed years ago and I used a bike to get to and from work which was a seven mile journey. I was terrified each time and one particular road which goes underneath Gatwick Airport had me frantically pedalling to get past a sliproad where cars would cut across in front of me to go up and then suddenly the next one would go behind me. I certainly got quite a bit healthier from the experience though.

Okay decision time and four images all in the running. I am going to have to go with “Katie Melua” er “Nine Million Bicycles in Beijing” By Malc and I do like the wheels all in a row and the DOF effect. Also the rain causing streaks down the image adds interest.

So well done to Malc and many thanks everyone for another fun week. Smile
