Enter ePz's Christmas Prize Draw! Plus, a prize for all on Xmas day!

Weekly IL Black and White Challenge - ending 8pm Wednesday 30th November 2022 - Direction

24 Nov 2022 12:35PM
I can't see that we've specifically done this before - an image that includes something that gives a sense of direction. My example leaves open a number of possibilities, taken at Start Point on the South Devon coast. Guidance to landlubbers is provided by the signpost whilst help for mariners is afforded by the lighthouse.


1. The challenge is just for fun
3. Only b&w or sepia-toned images allowed.
4. Only one upload per member, uploaded in this thread.
5. If you win, you host the next week’s challenge - see note below.
6. Don't get lost.


Hosting involves starting a new challenge thread (with or without an example image - your choice) - and coming back at the end of the week to choose a winner.

As long as you are facing South, then yes...or would that be a selfie with a reflection?

Thanks Andrew, the example image points us in the right direction.

Well, maybe it points everyone in three directions at once so no-one will ow where they're going Smile

I think Malc has a compass - I seem to remember that from a macro challenge some while back - so he'll give a good lead.

Well here we go, plenty of directions in this one.
Road, rail and river.

At least both height restriction signs are the same....

Yes, but which way? Easy. If the next one says 107 miles, you're going the right way. On the other hand, if I wanted to go there I wouldn't start from here.

By the way folks, I will be late tonight with the judging - probably about 10pm,

Obvious exit

I had to take my two year old to a hospital appointment today for a scan on his kidneys as they were enlarged when he was born. He's fine, his kidneys are functioning as they should.

I realised it would probably be a bit dark by the time we got back home but I knew I could get a photo in the hospital to suit the theme.

It is almost as if the "WayOut" sign is not needed though as the exit is in full view. Smile

Perhaps some have thought it is an entrance, not an exit, or have thought it was a magic roundabout, going round and round...
