With the UK General election coming up, cross came to mind for all sorts of reasons. So a photo showing your interpretation of cross for this week please. Extra points for drama; selfies allowed.

Those all important rules:
1. The challenge is just for fun.
2. All images must be taken after the theme is announced.
3. All images must be uploaded by 8pm on Wednesday
4. All uploads must be B&W (or sepia toned)
5. Only one upload per member
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. Don't get cross
9. Enjoy yourself

Good luck!

I'll have to apologies for my absence for a couple of weeks from this and the other place.
We're escaping the weather to Fuertoventura shortly for our 22nd wedding anniversary - We all have a cross to bare.
Back later in month.

Going to try to get a shot in for this one this week. Have to do it over the weekend tho. So can I just check....

Is any interpretation of the word 'cross' acceptable? Or does it have to be the emotion? (i.e. angry).

Any interpretation you want!

Finally managed to 'get my act together.' Pretty standard stuff but made it! I've been somewhat side-tracked for the last few weeks by health issues (mine and now SWMBO's - still ongoing so I'll be kind of irregular for a while).

Pete - sorry to hear of you and your wife's health issues, hope they are nothing too troublesome and serious.

Thanks Malc - not life-threatening stuff so I'm hoping (well, expecting really) things will improve and we can get back to normal soon (well, how normal depends on the four letter BREXIT word - oh, it's 6 letters, but...…)

Time is more than up - got distracted by Masterchef! Back soon with result.

A good variety of crosses making decisions tricky.

Eric - a bit of a shoehorn here - well a magnifying glass actually which I think appeared in the macro challenge - 2 for the price of one?
Malc - how you persuade your wife to model your entries is a mystery but presumably there is a pay-off. I think she needs more wax on those skis.
Peter - lovely, peaceful country scene
Alison - well spotted cross patterns while crossing the bridge - I like it
Chris - a cutting edge photo
Eddie - love the drama with your light painting.

The winner has to be the cross Mrs Salty. Well executed (so to speak) Malc - over to you.

It was rather fortunate I was out there in the dark as a couple who were walking through could not see where they were going but I was able to light the way. Smile

Well done Malc and Kudos to Mrs Salty for her participation. Smile

Many thanks for this week Phil. Smile

Many thanks from mrs. salty and myself, Phil. I am extra grateful as you have given me the idea for her forthcoming birthday - more wax for her skis!
Good to see a diverse selection of entries, so well done to one and all.
It may well be the morrow before a new challenge is forthcoming.

Philstan. No not the 2 for one. This one was a Macro Mono. the only thing was it was taken the same day has the other entry. Gypsyman.
