Deleted entries. I realized my garage sale would be going on about the time of judging and passing the baton. On the million to one chance of being selected, (none of my images have ever been sniffed 😁)  I wouldn’t have time to deal with it.

Good luck, everyone!

Pushing a broken down vintage car

I'm so sorry to hear what has happened to you Colin. Best wishes for the future, and as has been said, perhaps a 'mended' theme will come to you in life.

 

I'm not sure whether I'll enter this image, but what were the chances of a wandering emu sharing a moment in time on a bridge in London....

So sorry for your break-up. You always looked such a happy bunch climbing those mountains and all.

Let's see what we can add to the misery 😂

Very sorry to hear about your situation Colin. I don't have any wise words to offer that will help much in your current situation but as was stated already time is indeed a great healer.

Maybe it's what she gives you when you waive the rules. Looks painful.

Colin, sorry to hear of the pain you're having to go through. Fear not, you will get through it - there will be happier times.

Broken cliff face.

Sidmouth, 6th Apr 18. A Devon resident has amusingly put a “For Sale” notice on his shed – as it is now perched inches from a 100 foot drop. Four cliff falls in the last week have left properties in Cliff Road, Sidmouth missing metres of garden. The continuing erosion of Pennington Point, to the east of the Regency town, now endanger the mouth of the River Sid itself, which if affected could flood a large area ofthe town. Repair costs are estimated at cost £72 millionif the flooding happened. Photo Central / Alamy Live News Stock Photo

It is the first time I have known or seen the Guards breaking step on a bridge.  The Scots regiments have to break step when crossing a bridge because the kilts swinging in unison can cause problems for the bridge.

The rusty remains of the tugboat SS Wyola at CY O'Connor Beach in Perth, Western Australia. Adding to the broken theme is the sculpture of CY O'Connor out to sea in the background. He was an engineer who designed several major works here in Western Australia in the late 19th century, including Fremantle Harbour and the Perth to Kalgoorlie pipeline. He received a lot of criticism from the press and politicians about his projects, so much so that he eventually rode his horse into the ocean and committed suicide. So that is what the sculpture sadly depicts.

A volcanic explosion breaks through to the surface of the Earth carrying shattered fragments of incandesent lava and ash into the atmosphere. Volcanoes can be viewed as destructive but they are also constructive, all part of the natural flow of plate tectonics, without which there would be no life on Earth. In other words, sometimes things have to die for rebirth to occur.

The entrance to a lava tunnel with shattered carapace and lava fragments on the ground. The molten lava which once flowed through the tunnel is long gone, leaving behind a shell which will eventually break up and disappear itself. Everything is transient.

Large rock framents on the ground beneath the red chalk cliffs of Hunstanton, Norfolk, England, caused by marine erosion and weathering. Sea level rise will eventually see these cliffs disappear in the blink of a geological eye.

Thanks Paulette. I haven't been entering the monthly competitions for a while now and not uploading either. I have loads of images awaiting tagging which I must get around to doing.
