    Paul (aka pdh) has selected our next theme.

    How about a theme of "the unexpected" for the coming week? -- it might be that you were surprised by something and took a photograph of it ... or by the image that emerged from your camera ... or, of course, however you choose to interpret the theme ... so good luck to the entrants and of course thanks to my voters!​


    What can we expect? Get snapping and posting!

    I imagine she's not too happy after last night's result which was also quite 'unexpected'.

    This is one of my oldest photos... but definitely unexpected. I was framing up the canal scene when I saw the cyclist and waited for him to come into view. I didn't see the balloon until I dropped my camera from my eye...

    You can imagine my surprise when I looked beneath this mushroom and found a miniature version of myself doing a shot for the flickr group Face-Down Tuesday. If you've never seen the group and like wacky photos... check it out...... Flickr: Face-down Tuesday

    I shot this pic yesterday morning. A flock of geese took off all of a sudden when I was walking past the creek...managed to fire a few shots and this looked the best!

    Less than 20 hours to post an image - we have some good ones but the field is rather small.

    This one was "strolling" on its own, just like me:

    I have a million shots in my head that occured at that unexpected moment when I didn't have a camera with me! We all have had those moments, I'm sure. Anyhow sometimes when the sun moves and brings light through the window at a certain angle things happen! This was shot with my Pentax Q:

    light&shadow.

    Torbay lifeboat puts to sea

    I was in Brixham a couple of weekends ago to photograph the Brixham sailing trawler race. I was well placed when the Torbay lifeboat unexpectedly put to sea in answer to a distress call from a vessel some 8 miles out to sea. I was able to take a series of shots, all manually focused with an Olympus 50-200mm, f/2.8-3.5 zoom on a Panasonic GH2. Here the lifeboat meets the choppy sea head on as it punched into the strong ESE wind.
