Ok - finally have some time on my hands to come back to the fold.

Just warming up and this is my first effort:

Suspension bridge

And have decided (at this stage because I am fickle) to put this one in:

Federation Square

I am very annoyed at myself because i missed the architecture comp - i thought i did not have any pics to use but i had just taken all these lighthouse pictures - grr!

Be kind - i am still using my Samsung and learning

Not sure if it meets the brief but here's my effort. I was at the dental hospital Tuesday and Wednesday so went for a wander in Melbourne Uni (which is opposite)

The colour version just made Explore on Flickr #91

Not sure why I'm bothering after what has already been uploaded!

This made me realise two things - how old my hands look and how dirty my rings are!

This has been a bomb-out week for me, lost all inspiration due to over-worked/under-paid syndrome wink.gif

Just a quick shot of a fence around a newly constructed playground near my place. I was swinging with my nephew when I realised I'd been staring at the "lines".

Lines B&W

Some of your shots this week are incredible!

Mummy26, that shot is beautiful in black and white but OMG when I saw the richness of the colour version! Gorgeous!

Peanut, I just love kitty! So cute!

katpaws: Great shot of one of my favourite (and most photographed) places!

Wow everyone, what wonderful shots this week. I had the most favourites I think I've ever had judging!

Just to the 2 who miss out in Flickr comments:

Susie25, love your point of view and the great white space to the right. Really highlights the lines in the carriages.

Fiestycat, great find. It is amazing how you find lines in absolutely everything. I like your side point of view also.

My favourites this week that really stood out to me were LittleC, Susie25, Peanut, mummy26 & katpaws. Each of you could have won this week as I was flipping through your shots repeatedly. In the end the congratulations goes to...

LittleC

With this shot:

Anyone who has seen my photostream, knows I'm a sucker for jetties. However, I just love the lines you have found and the texture of your shot. I think you nailed the brief. So congratulations, you are this week's winner.
