I'll keep it brief today. I know I've said that before, but mrs. salty had her second vaccine dose today and is feeling a bit poorly, so need to offer a good dose of succour...

Dave (R): Designed to cause ultimate pain if stepped on. The complete opposite to the negative space full of soft carpet.

Malc: Billy no mates all alone in the snow - as bit how you must feel with that BOTongue

Somnath: Dark, negative space, although there is not a lot of space in that passage. The darkness providing lots of space, though.

David: An off-centre hole in a centred stone. I always wonder what has caused these holes in stones.

Andrew: Stone me! More stones! Multiple stones, even....or are there some pebbles in there, too?

Linda: Good to see your entry, even if you feel it was a rushed effort. Appropriate, too this week.

Eddie: Quackers, as ever, I note. Or should I say, 'hello, duckie'Tongue

Back soonish...

I feel it might be the best thing to do to disqualify myself, leaving six runners and riders.

So, the honour/problem of setting the next theme/challenge will this week befall to our dear friend and fellow photographer David (not Dave R)
I liked the minimalism of the image, clean and simple.

Thanks to all who took part, and see y'all next time around.

Btw I hope Mrs Salty is feeling better soon but I'm pleased she has had the second one and should be better protected.

Well done David... nice one.

And thanks to Malc for the challenge. Hope Mrs Salty recovers quickly.

Same time, same place next week, folks! 🙂

Well done David and thanks Malc for the challenge.

Eddie - not just you; I took my camera for a walk today to see if I could get something better than the shot I put in, only to discover the card was at home in the computer. (And no fallback - my phone doesn't have a camera, even though it's quite new (2009). ) Smile

One missing memory card = One useless camera. I had hoped to use the 18-135 zoom on the camera to isolate a subject and maybe background blur to get negative space. Blur being difficult on the J2 or my phone so in the end I used the pond to sort out the negative space otherwise it was going to be a last second still life at home.

Maybe putting a memory card in camera should be added to the rules. Grin

Incidentally I was going to bath my 5 month old son and then edit and upload but after checking the time I realised there was only a half hour to go so I had to do things the other way around. Smile
