Time to vote folks.

 

I've shortlisted on the basis of me not knowing why I like an image too. So you have to vote the same way. Or something.

 

Anyhow, you have until midnight on Friday 6th March to vote.

 

The shortlist is:

 

Martin's cricket net

Very funny, Schrödinger would have liked that.

Actually he would have liked it and not liked it at the same time until asked whereupon the wave function would have collapsed.

I like two finalists for unknown reasons, and I like them equally.

So, until I cast my vote, perhaps neither AND both of those finalists have my vote,

or perhaps not.

That's probably true, but then maybe it isn't.

Hmm. Uncertainty. Paging Dr Heisenberg!

Are you certain he's still around?

He's been seen in a number of States...

Thank you, Allan!

Yeah, I like your new pic and hair too, Ann. The hair says action! Since I've been cutting my own hair I look as if I've been gang raped in prison . . . hence the cap.

Thank you, Edo, and I plan to borrow your "hair says action!"

 

And whatever the backstory of your haberdashery, your taste in caps is world class!

Steady, mate. It's all relative.

Actually I am finding this all Strange, Up and Down in fact. Just need more Charm to get to Top and Bottom of this subject.

"I don't know why I like it but I do" is rather quarky, isn't it?

I was thinking exactly the same as Allan, but about 14 hours too late!

My cat Mabel both thanks you and ignores you for the attention.   :)

The uncertainty principle is strong in this one. Neck-and-neck between the blurred gull and the demi-cat.

 

I haven't voted yet and if by the close of play tomorrow it's still a tie, I'll use my vote as a tie-braker.

Russell, thank you for such a quirky topic this month and for short listing my toadfish. I feel like a winner just for making the list!

What an elegant way, Kumar, to make a comment about not making a comment about how you are or aren't out of your depth.

 

And I see the two images I was so torn between are now tied with each other - so each is both winning and not winning - at the moment.

 

- Ann

Aaaaaand....

 

...the uncertainty is over. Maria's quantum cat pipped Reimar's blurred gull at the last.

 

Congratulations to Maria and thanks to all who took part. Some great images again for us all to look at.

 

So it's over to Maria to choose a topic for March's challenge. If Maria really exists, that is...

She appears, or does not appear, to be a cat.
