  • January 2015. Captains Voyage Forum Occasional Photo Competition

    As I have the honour (?) of setting the subject of the next competition, here it is. I decided upon it long ago, together with a snatch of the William Henry Davies old poem which decided me, and apologise for my delay.

    What is this life if, full of care,
    We have no time to stand and stare.
    No time to stand beneath the boughs
    And stare as long as sheep or cows.
    No time to see, when woods we pass,
    Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
    No time to see, ......

    and so it goes on. Hackneyed, but so true these days.
    However, I attach conditions! Banned are images of vehicles, vessels, flying machines of any kind.
    Mark says to allow two weeks for posting, so the DEADLINE IS 15TH JANUARY.
    Let head-scratching commence. Good luck.
    Ivy

    Thou canst not then be false to any man."

      It would be as well if I copied Mark's original rules on to this thread:
      As mentioned in 'Chit-Chat', it doesn't have to be a new or current photo - it may be one from your collection, or even one you've posted on CVF before - only rule is that you need to have taken it!
      Same rules as ever - anyone welcome to post anything - up to 3 entries per person (I think we used to say) - and then give us a title for each photo.
      That first one is a boon - this time of year it isn't always comfortable weatherwise to Stand and Stare!

        Wow, a photo competition again. Great!
        I belive the weather this time of year might well invite to stand and stare...., and so I did today as I took my Pentax for the first photographic walk of 2015.

              What a fantastic start from Yves and Svein - and for such a difficult - or possibly more accurately such a different - topic.

              No boats, trains, planes .... hmmm. That knocks out 90% of the collection.
              Cheers,

              Mark.
