    The theme for June is now closed.

    The theme for July 2016 is

    Red and Round

    Ron Smith as kindly provided us with this month’s thoughtful theme. It’s a cleverly chosen subject designed to make us think a bit harder. As well as obvious subjects like red balls of flowers look around at every day object and you might be surprised and what you find. Ron suggested a post box. By the way Ron would still welcome members to contact him.    

    There’s no restriction on when the photograph was taken so search though your archives show us what you can produce.

    Just to kick off this month’s theme I took these photos on Saturday night in Reasheath College grounds. They painted a couple of their trees with red light.

    Red and round tops and read and round fruit. Doesn’t the red stand out strongly.

    Interesting shapes and patterns there John. Well spotted. This theme makes you look at things differently.

    Ok. These are all true red, but I think I can get away with it ’cause I’m making up the rules! These were all taken last Sunday at Hack Green Nuclear Bunker and Prees.

    It is called “artistic licence” Peter! They look fine to me.

    Kath has a good one posted on the Flickr page but cannot manage to upload it here, problem is finding a suitable URL from the Flickr info. Ian showed me how to pick it up, now the info on the iPad is rather limited and I cannot manage to get it to work.

    I have now worked out how the extract the URL from a Flickr image and have prepared a document about it .

    Kath >>> This is the URL you need to paste into the ‘Insert/edit image’ dialogue:

    “https://c4.staticflickr.com/9/8093/27822140323_17f2b06ccb_z.jpg”

    (but without the quotation marks)

    I like your clever thinking there John. Red flowers and the round curve stones. Very good.

    Good one Wallace. (The bee is nicely caught too).

    Did you use my guide to find the Flickr URL? I’m anxious to see if it is usable!

    It’s quite rare to see a bee in flight looking so sharp. Great shot Wallace.

    John, the picture below is loaded from by using your technique. It was quite easy to do when you know what link to look for in the code.

    My flickr URLs are in the format of:   https://c5.staticflickr.com/8/7329/27761510652_a67c890835_z.jpg. To make it easier to see I copied the whole line of code in to notepad and copied and pasted the link from it into the ‘Inset/Edit Image’ icon. It’s easier than it sounds once you try it.

    The idea of this photo it that the ladies are wearing red and going round and round!
