The good submarine "Challenger" surfaced enough to get a look at the weather for the upcoming Black and White challenge theme.....

Please excuse the lack of summary prose, rest assured we've enjoyed looking at each entry.
Thanks to everyone for participating and the challenge you given us in selecting.....
Mrs D and I agreed on the final two at which point she bailed and told me I was on my own.

So with two different kinds of key, an open and closed lock and the excellent rusty texture of the analogue version it over to you Andrew.

Again, thank you all for your entries.
