Thanks all.

noticed after I took them that there was a hair stuck somewhere in my camera body.

very obvious in the shots, but hopefully managed to get rid of the worst of it.

Just off centre. You can see it if you zoom in to the Flickr shots.

But I took them a few days ago and the flowers are now past their best, so I couldn’t retake.

Last one for me - nice to see the effect of time on a time piece. But understand why you've used what you have, but it didn't shout time or time piece to me from the main thread.

Thanks all.

Like most people these days, I have a smart watch (by which I mean Apple Watch, not a dress watch) so my good watch gets very little use.

It was a treat to myself 20 and a bit years ago when I got my first decent job. It's definitely been through the wars though. I damaged it almost immediately (the 15 on the dial) when wearing it to go swimming. I'd forgotten my goggles so was trying to do lengths without them. Unfortunately, I had my eyes shut for a bit as they were stinging. And it was just long enough to wander off course in my lane and scrape the watch on the edge of the pool.

After that, it didn't feel so pristine, so I just wore it whenever I did anything, I think the only time I took it off was when washing the car - and that was to protect the car from scratches, rather than protect the watch.

Part of the reason why I liked number two and six was because they show some of that wear.

As someone else mentioned above, it's nice to see the passage of 'time' on an object.

Like the first one best, the backstory on the 15 damage was good, bet you had a few choice words to say when it happened so early in its life.

I'm not a big fan of super shallow DoFs, but in this case it works. My favourite is #1 for the interesting PoV!

Week 15 - Snapper's choice.

Saw this bad boy and originally thought it was dead as it wasn't moving.

Then I went to pick up the tea-towel it was on and it flapped its wings.

Pretty big (I know nothing about wasp types) but looking on line, I think it's a yellowjacket.

Transport - I like the colour and the low Pov of the 2nd one.
Fenced - That certainly gives the feel of a confined space.
Flora - I like the first one more
Time - interesting set of images
Free week - very vibrant and great detail

A friend of my wife (who's an etymologist) says it's a normal wasp, but a queen.
I agree with that, there are a lot about at the moment, now the weather is warm and dry, all looking for nest sites.

Nice close up Kell.

Nice contrasting colours and detail.

Not my favourite subject at the moment. We had a nest in the wall space last year - had to make a hole to dig it out! We've blocked it off and they are all buzzing around outside now looking for the entrance. Hoping they don't find a way in!

Hi Kell,

The coffee bean image is spot on for Pleasure. That one really works for me.
Interesting sculpture for Local. I think the lit version is the one for me. Well done for getting a silhouette too.
Cracking set of shots for Wild. The last one with the raindrops is absolutely excellent!
Nice shot for Winter. The Giraffe looks a little bemused by it.
Good take on the theme for Fenced. That's a busy small desk!
Excellent set of images for Time. All excellent images. It's nice to see a watch light that with 'patina'.
Snapper's choice is a very sharp shot. Well done for getting that close!
