Apocalyptic hailstorm this afternoon in the most un photogenic street in the world. I'm just padding out the entries :)

Scanned photo of me taken in the 90s after a blizzard. I am eating an orange but it is hard to tell in B&W.

Lol. I've only just noticed the B&W element to this contest. What a plum! Epic fail on my part. I've quickly converted mine to black and white making it at least 43% worse. Hope it's not too late.

I saw yours in colour but nothing twigged … :confused:

Shouldn't the contest have closed yesterday? Obviously just hanging on until you'd changed your entry!

Lol. So mean!

To be fair I don't think my effort is troubling the winners this week.
tbh, even though I gazed at the photo more than thrice, for some reason the colour did not register as a no-no. maybe the overwhelming brit grey weather was a crucial factor

strange
