May 2021 Challenge: in Between the Lines - CLOSED


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Trying to involve as many people as possible, the new challenge is 'in between the lines'.

I know we had a 'converging lines' challenge a while back, this time they don't have to converge!

 

Rules as usual, 3 images max on Alamy, challenge finishes at midnight on 31st May, Sydney time

Converging lines? What, no bugs, no bees, no butterflies? 

 

I could have chosen 'macro shots of insects only taken at night time in the tropics' but I have a feeling that it would not have been popular 😂

I had a big fat zero images for the Covid challenge.

 

Lines do not need to converge for this one. Any line will do. City or nature setting. Good luck!

congrats for the win....  Interesting challenge 

 

(might want to specify which Sydney 😉.  13 hours time difference between the 2 Sydney airports, might make a difference....  )

Hey!😠

Some people like images of the DC Metro though. (Image not mine) The back of the album (cd) is the same image mirrored, but with a slightly wider crop: quite nice when folded open.

Do you have the kw brutalist or brutalism?

I don't think there will be any confusion... I will remind people on the 31st how long is left. Now I need to plan to have Internet access at the end of the month...

i always wonder if people ever get confused between the two booking flights.  Always hated that, being in Canada I would distractedly price flights Toronto-Sydney, see low price and notice oh, wrong Sydney. (still expensive being internal flights to a small airport)

Someone I know flew London/London. When she announced that her flight to London had been cancelled, there was some confusion. But I thought you were coming from London? No, coming from London Uk to London Ontario!
