Managed to find something, so I'm in too.
Many thanks to Kevin for unknowingly lending me the subject - I'll post it back as it's not my size.Wink

Well thanks to everyone who entered this week. What a varied selection you gave me. And not a lipstick among them, to my surprise. Smile So, let’s go in the traditional order of entry...

Kevin – Nice shot. But I’m afraid I’m going to have to correct you on your title. The fastening in question is made of two parts – hooks and eyes. The parts you have photographed are actually the eyes. But still a good shot.

Chris – Pink is indeed a very happy colour. And that was a happy and creative way to use a pink highlighter – much better than the use I put them too!

Dave – I can just imagine the scene as your grandson tried to steal them off you whilst you were trying to get your shot in! It did make me chuckle when I read your comment! And as I was laid on my sick bed at the time, that was very much appreciated. I hope he enjoyed the sweets – and you got to savour some peace while he did.

Malc – I applaud you for conducting such a thorough search in pursuit of this week’s challenge. Not convinced about the cited source of your subject matter though!

Phil – Spring is my favourite season of the year. So it’s good to be reminded that it’s just around the corner. Nice bit of light on the leaves.

Simon – I can’t decide which is your worst sin on this one – letting the bottle run dry without replenishing it, or blaming the poor defenceless Mrs sjr for drinking it all when I rather suspect you had a hand in it yourself. Hmmm. Wink

Eddie – Something tells me your an incurable romantic at heart. Nice touch. I hope you’ll be putting them to good use on Thursday.

Alison (IL) – Lovely looking piece of fabric. Lovely colour too – just my shade of pink (a bit more towards the purple end of the spectrum). I hope it’s an item from your wardrobe and something you look fabulous in! Or was it part of the fabric for the sewing project?

Karin – Lovely pink whisk. It makes me want to get in the kitchen and bake a cake! Nice shot. Now, where did I put the icing sugar…..?!

Cherries … Strawberry jam … vanilla …. cheesecake…..

Ooops! Sorry. Back to business….

So the winner this week is…

… drum roll….

Dave. I really like the way the light catches on the wrapper and the depth of field. All the more impressive for knowing the testing conditions under which it seems it was taken. The baton (if not the sweeties) are yours for the week.

Thanks once again to everyone. Until next week....

Against a great selection....

Thanks Linda - Jo Jos is my favourite breakfast outlet in Seaton.
I never seem to get the sweets though, even when Nick & Adam aren't with us I can't help keeping them for them.
Must be a Granddad thing.

Now for next week - will be back no later than the am tomorrow with a challenge.

Nice one Dave, well done sir...and thanks Linda, I did realise my description error later, but too late to change..!

Now I have to check with the local constabulary whether I have what constitutes a written confession to burglary...Tongue

Oh...they’re closed...Sad

A belated congratulations Dave and thanks to Linda for running the show this week.

The fabric is black denim which is now a new camera bag Smile
