There appears to be unlimited opportunity to snap some of our oh-so-not attractive street furniture which clutters up every street in every town. Added to this are street markings and mostly-unneeded signs and instructions. Or perhaps where you live there is some quirky furniture which might brighten up the place. Let's see. Smile

Each week the winner of the previous week’s challenge will set a new theme, you have until 8pm the following Wednesday to take, process and upload your black and white image.

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. Have fun

Furniture? You mean like tables and chairs, sideboards, Welsh dressers and the likeWink There are some benches by the harbour, I suppose..... There used to be a lot of furniture in the streets every Wednesday when the council van came round to pick them up for the tip but that's been stopped, unfortunately.

You may jest, Pete, but where I live this is "normal". Grin

Our Street is used as a dump for most of the town, the last fly-tip had 3 chairs, 4 framed picture and a broken table, it has been cleared up now but I'm sure it will be refurnished soon Sad

Street furniture usually refers to signs, lighting, bollards, etc. But if you have an alternative interpretation that's equally valid. Nothing's out of bounds. Smile

Fortunately, Norway is very clean and furniture abandoned on the pavement or along the roadside simply does not occur - at least not in areas I have visited, and that's quite a few.
Thankfully Chris explained her theme so I was able to capture an example locally.Smile

Just seen this challenge. Earlier I saw a sofa someone had obviously no need for, which was propped up against a wall. If only had known then!!!

It can mean whatever you want, Karin. I just offered up some suggestions, but if you come across something interesting that you think meets the description then go for it. Smile

Well, I'm in, but.... thought it would be 'fun' to go out in the rain with a WR camera. Dropped the lens cap in the gutter, knocked the lens-hood off while drying it (under cover, but guess where the hood was heading) and I got wet.

Photography should not be boring, but should include elements of surprise, frustration, irritation, irrigation (Tongue)
flatulation (Blush) and many other -ations - all sent to either try our patience or give us a warm feeling somewhere.
