Fancy a challenge? Well this is the place to find it.
Posting one image a week “on theme” can’t be that difficult can it?
This is the place to find out and test your metal…

There are no prizes, just self satisfaction, some friendly banter, with like minded people and of course a few laughs along the way.
Everyone is welcome to join in, whether you are one of the stalwarts of the 52 community ( its entering its 12th year) or a 52 virgin,
whatever your level of experience, you are most welcome.
We are a friendly bunch and quick to help out if you need it,

The old hands know the score, and thanks to all that took part in 2020 making it a success .
After all, its nothing without you Guys and Gals.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up now, your Challenge needs you!

Please note this is the sign up only thread

We spent a week away in the motorhome at Beecraigs Country Park, West Lothian.
After a day of torrential rain, we were treated to some beautiful late afternoon autumnal sunshine with great views over the countryside to the Forth Bridges.
As the crow flies, the bridges are roughly 8 miles away.

I found these bobbins in a skip where I was working (Plasterer). Course I picked them out as I to me they looked cool photography wise.

They have been kicking about the van since then.

I had a clean out and thought I would try and take a photo of them.

The other bit's in the photo are from Jan's Uncle whom passed away a while back.

The base I made some time ago from wooden pallet wood.

I made the back board with some roll on vinyl from Wilko stuck onto 5mm mdf.

Just thought I wouldmention how the photo was made up as I like that type of info myself.

Any help on how this can be improved in any way eg: composition, p&p, lighting, would be great.
