OK its time to get down and dirty.
This weeks challenge is the floor so plenty of textures to go for and a choice of indoors or outside.
Go do your things and we shall meet as ever at 8pm on Sunday to see what you have floored me with.

The Rules are:

1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. The challenge runs from 8pm on the Sunday and runs until 8pm the following Sunday.
4. Only one upload per member.
5. Please feel free to comment on the entries once judging is complete.
6. The person who hosts is the judge for that week challenge and the judge’s decision is final.
7. The winner gets to create, run and judge the challenge for the following week.
8. Be careful getting back up if you have dodgy knees.
9. Have fun.

..more worried about banging me head while staring at the ground....

but plenty of “smartphone” users seem to survive such blissful ignorance of their surroundings..! Tongue

We're on holiday for my 60th next week. Sue wondered why after breakfast I'm on my knees taking pictures of the balcony floor tiles.....

Might just have to enter a 1euro beer in the bargain challenge....

Incidentally - Fuerteventura, 22deg partly cloudy and the beer cold

Just in case no one was aware its the weekend and if you are reading this now you have around 36 hours to enter this weeks macro challenge. If you are reading this later then you have less time.
Happy to help.

Lets do a quick round up.

KrazyKA ~ From plain to pattern is seamless and nice center focused almost looks to be swirling.

Aidobel ~ Been there done that we have a loft & garage full of maybe it will come in handy one day.

Cattyal (hail and bow) ~ another nicely center focused shot, there looks to be still plenty of life left in the rug if not I know where I can get you a good deal on some laminate flooring.

KevinEllison ~ One of our brave outdoor snappers reminding us Its getting to the time of year for weeding.

EddieAC ~ Some lovely colours and textures.

feen96 ~ I feel your pain I too would be doing the floor shot at a safe height.

saltireblue ~ A nice look at receding winter showing old signs of autumn left behind.

philstan ~ A wonderful set of natural shapes left by nature.

DaveRyder ~ Terracotta tiles and precision grouting it could only be Spain. Wishing you a very feliz cumpleaños for the coming week.

SlowSong ~ Only in a macro challenge would anyone be in one of the country's finest museum and photograph the floor. Good work.

Right decision time I think im down to 2 maybe 3 possibly 4 pictures. Stand by.

Ooooh, thanks Simon. Have to admit, you're spoilt for choice in a museum.
Got to get my thinking cap on now. You lot have come up with some super challenges lately so a bit under pressure here. Back asap. Smile

Well done Chris - who knew a humble step could be so photogenic?!

And thanks to Simon for the challenge.

I have to apologise for the no-show this week. Mr PL bought a campervan so I was busy trying to find/buy things to fit in it. Time kinda ran out on me I'm afraid. 😒 And I'm still trying to work out how to fit everything in without too many rattles. Anyway, I expect to be back in the game next week!
