    Out for an hour, trying to avoid other people, Leica M9 Monochrom in hand, with the 7Artisans 50mm 1.1.

    Taken through the railing around Fettes College, where Tony Blair went to school, and where I taught guitar - no, not to him! I'm not that old...yet.

    Interesting tower, looks like something from a fantasy movie. Looks great just peeping through the trees.

    Yeah, I'm a peeping Tom, but don't tell anyone! o_O

    I could use a couple of those pallets! to raise my washing machine and drying.

    I'm kind of torn about the first image: maybe some toning would lift it? The second I like a lot though. It really is quite an arresting composition. I'm glad you caught it when you did and before Rhonda made off with a couple of them!

    Yes, we'll have to keep an eye on her. Pixels are going missing!

    The first is okay as it is, but could be a little better. Maybe toning is the answer, or a bit more contrast, or something else altogether. There was an eye-catching washing machine lower left, but it went missing after @Rhonda Smith paid a visit!

    So that's what she wanted the pallet for! ;)
