    The theme for May is now closed.

    The theme for June 2015 is

    Transport

    Post your images as replies to this post. (Make sure you’ve read the Guidelines first.)

    We’re all surrounded by transport of many different types. From a small bike to an articulated lorry so there’s plenty of choice. Your mission is to record a form of transport as your ceative juices fancy. Show its speed or lack of it, or how it relates to its payload and environment..

    Don’t forget if you would like to suggest a topic for the ‘Monthly Theme’ please email it to me.

    Remember – only post photos taken between 1st.June  30th.June 2015

    As you say, should be plenty of interest and let’s start with one from someone who has not posted before: Les Simpson has asked for this to be posted on his behalf. So where is everyone else?

    Thanks Les for posting your first picture. Hope this is one of many and that it encourages a few more people who I know read this but don’t post to have a go.

    I think the picture packs a lot of information into one shot, but because it is well composed it doesn’t feel confusing or cluttered. We have three motorcycles clearly identifiable and the two (I forget the scale is it 1/4 they build to?) model steam engines across the front. The two chaps discussing things finish things of nicely, pity one of them is hidden a bit by the steam. The background sets the scene without attracting too much attention. Nice shot!

    Well done les nice to see you put something on. Like the mono and the diagonal shot, as well as the ancient and modern modes of transport. I know I still have problems uploading so perhaps on an open night a quick tutorial might be handy.

    Three offerings for you. The first incorporates two means of transport and so does the second, the third features the mode of transport usually most available to us.

    This last one is a slight cheat as it was taken a while back but since there is no element of chance or timing (I could easily have repeated it) I thought I might be forgiven.

    It is amusing to ruminate on why the last picture looks so odd!

    I like your thinking John especially the last one, shanks’s pony is usually left out. The only thing is as my mum used to say to my brothers, “Your trousers look as though they’ve divorced your ankles and married your knees.” I probably the angle, but it’s made me smile

    That is one of the odd things about the appearance of the last one! The answer is that I was sitting down at the time, as you are suggesting.

    Another “two for the price of one” transport modes. (But notice that the bike has no seat!)
