Thank you. The coot was most obliging / uninterested with me trying not to fall into the pond while taking photos.

I find most birds leg it before I can get near enough to them for a shot.

That’s reminiscent of a scene from Back to the Future. Budget to the Future!

I think it's safe to say that my heart isn't really in it this year. BUT, I have been taking photos and I have organised and chosen photos up to yesterday now.

So I just need to sort out my Flickr account and get some uploaded. You should see a catch-up of sorts from me tomorrow.

That's more than fine. I have the last two days to upload, as ever it's been difficult to find something to photograph, moreso with the (never ending) lockdown.

Nice shapes in that one. Am I missing the significance of the numbers?


My catch-up should be tomorrow now. I have processed and exported photos up to today though, so it’s just the uploading and sharing which I should have the time for then

Those are some amazing pictures Queeq, especially like July 9th and July 13th (where is that from) I wish I was as good a photographer, but I enjoy all the submissions :)

You're very kind, thanks wasted. I like the 9th too! The 13th is some Lego figures on the bathroom floor in front of a motion-sensitive LED light we use to help the kids at night time (well, nominally they're for the kids, but they're useful for us too!) :)

Great stuff. I particularly like the black and white Batman one.
