Did the new 'Winter's Tale' photo competition start yet? Don't think I've missed it  :unsure:

I don't think so aelf. :D Next Monday. :)



I think the photo should be taken between 3rd of December 2012 and the 3rd January 2013.

If the competition is for a photograph taken between 3rd Dec and 3rd January, that doesn't leave much time for me to set up the Boer War Growster Journalist's Semi-Automatic Leather-Bellows See-All Camera, with whalebone adjustments, and ebony gussetts, now does it!

Blimey, sometimes it takes about three days just to get the equipment organised, and I have to wait for a sunny, still day with no cloud, and also, the good people at Boots will be on holiday, so the photo-plates won't be developed much before February!

Then I'll have to drive the old Morris 8 up to Nottingham to collect them, as the post is no good with such delicate objects, and petrol is nearly 4/6 a gallon, so all I'm asking is, can I send in my contributions in March, and also, if I send a stamped addressed envelope, can I have them back please?

I really don't know what the world's coming to these days, some competitions back in my day took nearly three years! You want it all done and dusted in a month!

Growster do stop faffing about with all that fiddly equipment. Get with it and modern like what I've done. Get yourself a Kodak Box Brownie!!! They are truly brilliant and you can turn them on their side and snap away but rememver to roll the film on and check the little window at the back or you'll be over exposed or is it super imposed?

Good luck everyone get snapping!!

"Despite the weather"  might be apt for the next competition.

It could also include chicks hatched under a broody "despite the weather".  Any other suggestions?    :)

Are there any photo comps running?
What about - it's too hot! Or Summer finally arrived?
Or New Pets? ( garden wildlife as normal folk would call them, my mum keeps telling me my son found a new pet today, he digs in the soil and touches the beetles and holds the worms etc)
