Right, I've had a bit of a think and a quick search and I don't think we've done this one before:

Your challenge is...... Local Heroes. I'm looking for a photo that celebrates a local hero (living or dead).

Interpretation of this is free but the usual rules apply - I.E. must include your bike and be taken after the start of the challenge. Feet and egrets are allowed (as if I could stop you :laugh:) but may be counted in your favour if there is a tie for the winner.:whistle:

Your deadline is three weeks today which is the 13th of December 2015.

It came down to three in the end where I liked both the photo and the background to it.

@accountantpete. I liked the composition and the artistic moodiness of the shot.

Well done and over to you.:bravo:

I was considering a cake or ice cream based competition, but have decided on something else.

Walls or balls. (Walls still make ice cream as well :thumbsup: )


That's it folks!

Have fun.. How long do we want for this challenge? Last day of January?

:smile:

Well, I've scrolled through the 125 or so posts in this competition and am impressed that quite a few of them actually have photographs within them!
As ever, the standards are high and the variation within the Walls and Balls (and a bike related summat) remit is highly imaginative.

@Katherine Lovely photograph..

Next challenge...
I was thinking 'classic novels' but have decided to make it

Book titles.

Photo of your bike and taken between now and Friday 26th February, that illustrates a book title, preferably one everyone has heard of. It can be as obvious or tenuous, serious or funny, as you like. You need to include what the book title actually is!

Hope everyone will enjoy the theme.
