    OK, here I am on a two month tour of Australia with my other half. We stopped over in Hong Kong where I was bowled over by the energy and bustle of the place.

    I am looking for movement WITH the impression of movement. be it animal, human or man made object, it moves I leave to you

    The salon starts at 00:01hrs Saturday 29th June for 2 weeks.

    Rules are simple................

    1. Either take a picture that matches the nominated theme or select one from your portfolio. You must be the photographer that created the picture in order to enter it.

    2. There are several ways to add your photos to the current salon thread: 1. upload your entry to your SC user gallery (all entries must be present in an SC gallery), which you automatically get if you are registered on the SC forum, so if you aren`t registered you will need to if you would like to join the fun. (Don't know about the "gallery" yet? Then read this: SC Gallery FAQ please read it carefully if you are new to using the site's software.) 2. embed from Flickr or another similar web hosting photo site and 3. use the attachment method. All three are explained here:How to post images in forum threads

    3. Only one entry per salon, please. If you want to withdraw an entry and replace it with another, that is OK, but you must make it clear in the post containing your replacement picture that this is what you've done. You can add or change the title and add to the edit line to let everyone know.

    4. The decision of the curator at the end of the challenge is final - don't give him/her a hard time about it: this is just a friendly photo challenge, after all!

    5. The person who submitted the chosen picture will assume the responsibility of curator for the next Salon Challenge and as soon as possible post a message in a new thread in the SC Photo Challenges forum, with details of the new theme. Don't forget - that opening message must include a copy of these instructions, which also double as the rules.

    6. The curator can't enter his or her own salon.

    7. Please, don´t be shy...Participate and have fun!

    8. Each salon should be open for about two weeks.

    A'wah wi'ye and dae ye best.

    Out'a Here!

    Met this fellow last evening while walking in the woods. He was patient for a while, as I tried to get close up in less that good light. Finally he said, " you've have had enough fun at the expense of my privacy. I'm out'a here".
    He's just getting stretched out in high speed departure, as I took my last opportunity for his/her portrait. :smile:

    With an imminent house move occupying my mind and driving out all thoughts of photography it has to be one from my archive, albeit it's quite a recent one.

    Movement isn't that pronounced here maybe a bit too subtle

    One day I'd like to say that I photographed this on purpose

    Audi R18 quattro hybrid driving in the rain at this year's Le Mans 24 Hours, this past weekend. The race remained unpredictable until the very end due to various rain showers, but was overshadowed by the death of Danish Aston Martin driver Allan Simonsen in the first minutes of the race... this photo sort of represents my feelings about the race, with the cars still going round in circles for the full 24 hours, but they're forced to the background by that sad event.
