May 2017 Challenge - Transport


Recommended Posts

Thanks to everyone who voted for the camel, and thanks especially to Wim for setting an interesting and imaginative challenge. This month’s is more prosaic, but I hope it works. The theme is ‘Transport’. So, trains and boats and planes, and any other means used to get from A to B.


 


Please submit up to three images, which should be from the Alamy collection. 


 


Deadline is midnight, May 31, after which I will shortlist to 8 images for the vote.


 


A couple of examples follow.


 


Good luck everyone!


 


Gareth
