The theme for this week is "Roads." Interpret this any way you like, as different and unusual interpretations are always welcome.

Here are the rules:

1. Shots need to be taken between sunrise Monday and sunset the following Sunday. Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Crummy shots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!

2. Post your shots at any time during the week.

3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e.,embedding them), but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the rules can be found here: http://photography-on-the.net/forum/...ad.ph​p?t=51049

That's it! Have fun!


Barbara

Roads? Where we're going, we don't need 'roads'. :lol:

And with that pitiful Doc Brown quote, I am subscribed to the thread. :lol:

urk

Every Monday (my time) I drive ~300km to Sydney - and every Tuesday, I drive back.

Every Tuesday afternoon I get to read POTN and I go to look and see what the new theme is

dammit!

But I am now subscribed - and have an airshow to go to this coming weekend - so will try for some country roads...

Condyk -- Railroads occurred to me too.
You're sure giving that G9 a workout! Your DSLR must be getting jealous.
I never before saw a platform named with a fraction. Platform 9 3/4, not 9 or 10? Am I misunderstanding?

John -- Sorry about the time lag. :cry: So you'll be going to an airshow. Can't wait to see pix of your Country Roads. (Gee, that reminds me of a song. John Denver, was it?)

... I love that sign!!! We visited London on vacation last summer, and the kids said we had to visit King's Cross Station just to take pics of them rolling their trolleys into the wall beneath that sign!!! ... Love it!!;)

Yeah, I discovered the Harry Potter reference afterwards. I'm not into that stuff tho' I have met Jo Rowling ;-)a As I walked past today there was a couple there taking photo's and the girl was pretending to fly through the wall. I felt a bit cheated.

Not really. Just met her a few times as she donated large sums to a charity I worked for. Lovely person who deserves her success.

Who's Harry Potter?

Just kidding. I know who he is because I frequent bookstores. But that's about all I know. Never read any of the books; never saw any of the movies. So the reference went right over my head.

I guess that makes me a Potter illiterate. :rolleyes:
