Alternative Olympics

By woolybill1
While some of the Knitted Olympics on Saltburn pier are over and gone, others have sprung up to take their place. And there's always room for the hangers-on!

V1 and V5: Sailboarding;
V2: the Couch Potato;
V3: the Torch Bearer;
V4: the Supporting Cast.

Wonderful set Bill. I particularly like the inclusion of the kite in V1.
The TV watcher with dog is priceless too Smile
BTW Lucie didn't come along this year, but if she would have been there she definitely would not have been visible in the shot, not even as a blur Wink

As a photograph v1 is an excellently worked image, Bill. Wonderful humour in them all, and it's interesting that the 'bus pass' figures prominently in both your and Mrs W's selections!

topical humourous colourful nicely composed and presented.
A fine set Bill, I think you have the edge on quality over Moira's but for sheer redheaded power she gets the award today.

I never tire of seeing these, and am so glad the vandalised ones have been replaced. Those needles much be clicking like the clappers!

Awesome captures, Bill GrinGrinGrin I just saw Moira's and I like how we get an added view in V2 here of the doggie behind the couch Smile

I can honestly say that the YarnBomber is deserving of the Nobel Peace Prize. If only the world worked that way...
