Award Shortlist   


By ChiliMan
Wow…amazing response to my Cycad Blue! And thanks so much, Sue (Sue118), for your wonderful User Award Smile

Thanks also for your well wishes, people. My mum is LOADS better today. The GP gave her some strong antibiotics (a 3-day course of just 3 tablets, one each afternoon. Last one this afternoon) and that must be doing its thing. Also, my mum’s been sensible and has had loads of rest.

As for my dad’s eye, he’s happily reading the papers without glasses now Smile The cataract op included multifocal lenses, same as my mum’s op a few years ago. Same surgeon too, actually. Top man.

*I missed Saturday Shadows yesterday so I will include a belated shadow shot here as a V2 Smile

I trust everyone’s being appropriately silly today? Speaking of which, I saw a New Year’s Eve episode of Graham Norton last night where the reunited Monty Python crew (the remaining 5) came on as guests. Brilliant. Oh, and I just found out I share the same birthday as John Cleese…October the 27th Grin

A wonderful pov in V.2, Andrew, great shadows. The less said about V.1 the better, you know my thoughts by now Wink So glad to hear your mum is well on the road to recovery, and you dad, too. Carol

Imagine being able to do that with your feet...
V2 is superb - why have you hidden it away? It deserves its own moment of glory, for sure!

A BIG click for V2. There is something totally commanding about it.
I agree with the previous comments. It should be out on its own where it can get showered with awards.

You could have saved yourself an upload Andrew,
if you waited on the scratching cat going up the tree and sitting on the branch !!
Good shots.

The pussy portrait is definitely up to scratch Andrew and you can save that shadow saturday image for a rainy day, it will be worth uploading again in its own right if you are ever short of material

Ahh, there's nothing like an itch for a scratch, Andrew..!
Great images, both of them - and V2 is a very good Saturday Shadow.
Glad to hear you and yours are all okay.
