Re: New Photo Competition 59

I've been trying to upload photos for a couple of days now with no luck. When I try to upload, I see a 'Blocked Plugin' note where the upload button usually is located. This happened with the last comp. too, but cleared up after a day or two. I have tried to download a 'new' version of Flash, but that didn't seem to do anything. Maybe my computer, like myself, is getting a bit long in the tooth

Try and resize the pics to a smaller size...if this does not work contact Mick....he is a star and will probably be able to sort it or upload the pics for you.

Thank you Margaret, but after trying all sorts of things on my old computer, I figured I would try to upload my photos borrowing a newer one. I think it's something to do with Flash, as the newer computer had no problem.

Very poor turn-out votes-wise for this competition... There are some great photos to choose from - all variations on a theme - doesn't take long to click and vote for your favourite

Re: New Photo Competition 59

Was my favourite for this theme, loved your idea of the shadows on the wall Margaret - one I wish I'd thought of taking! It reminded me so much of seeing my Gran hanging out her washing in the yard in Exchange Street - white-washed walls and she had a small planted area along the bottom of the wall which would have been full of daffodils at this time of year. She had a pole with a notch in it to lift up the line once it was full... Great photo, congratulations!

Thank you Dianne.
I was filled with trepidation...it meant I had to choose the next theme...it gets harder.
Not so many entries and not many votes either.
glad you liked my interpretation of the theme.....Yes I have a prop too.
