I will have to find a subject already contained in-house this week as my wife is now positive with a certain virus and so far my test result has not come back yet. We have to stay isolated until Tuesday but we are all perfectly okay.

Hope you're all OK over the next few days and weeks especially.

Best wishes to you all, Eddie - as for finding a subject, just take a selfie, that's more than scary and spooky enough!🤣🤣

Many thanks Dave & Malc!! Smile

My test result now back and it's a big fat "+".

Many thanks Dave! We are all fine, no issues apart from a minor symptom or two so I am not concerned at this point.

Damn didn't think of that. I should have hung a photo of a selfie on my front door, the virus would never dared to enter then!! Smile

Struggling a bit to find something suitable, but will come up with something, have no fear! The only thing I have found in the house that is spooky and scary is mrs. salty, but cannot figure out how to get a macro image of her at her scariest...Wink

Hi - I'm back! Missed you guys, you know.

I had to take a few weeks out due to pressures of work - and we were busy getting our house ready to go on the market too. Busy, busy, busy! So, with that all done, and having had chance to recharge the batteries, I logged back in to see what the challenge was. And it became instantly clear that a lot has happened in my absence. 😢 And now I see Eddie has had some bad news too - hope everyone's doing OK Eddie - thinking of you!

So, without further ado, I'm just going to get straight down to business. And the business this week is all things scary or spooky. Well, not sure I can really deliver on that one, but I've had a go. It's not a macro, but I'm hoping it classes as a close up - Dave will, of course, be the judge of that one. But whatever the final verdict on that one, here is my humble offering for the week....

Noting more scary than the natural world (or our interpretation of it, anyway).

The enemy within

A little low on inspiration this week so decided to go with a current event.

This lock has been on since earlier this week when we found out both my wife and I are positive for Covid-19. We are both okay and I have had worse colds so am not concerned at this point.

Locks like this are usually left on to prevent the outside from getting in (especially in a scary movie) but this one is on to stop us from going outside. Smile I'm hoping the visual of the lock and knowing about an unseen enemy will come across as creepy/scary. Smile
