Throwing it wide open, something irrelevant to the challenge so should be easy for someone else to bag one.

That's proper confused me, is that something beginning with I that's irrelevant to the photo challenge. A bit too cryptic for me.

Time waits for no man
This is a completely irrelevant post as Redvee beat me to H for horology
Shame to waste good story, so here are my horological observations from yesterday..................
Here is the memorial clock at Wearhead

DSCN0931 (375x500).jpg


And at Westgate
DSCN0934 (375x500).jpg


Both installed in the 1920s, paid by public subscription as a memorial to all who served in the first World War. There's another just down the Dale at Frosterley.
They were canny folk, the farmers, miners and quarrymen of Upper Weardale. They must have decided a clock was a better memorial than a piece of carved stone, however symbolic or emotive. The clocks will have been looked at so many times, every day for over 90 years.....

That hasn't sparked a heated philosophical debate, so back to pretty pictures.

The philosophical debate is quite irrelevant.

And that's why I found it difficult to accomplish Redvee's challenge.........whatever I did I just couldn't get it (the irrelevant philosophical debate) into focus next to my bike. I tried on both my camera and my phone, but every time I came to capture it, it just seemed to disappear into thin air.

I think Flite nailed it in one :D an irrelevant photograph was the task, so to repeat the previous quest fulfilled the object of the exercise. the subject was irrelevant. Smart thinking :lol: I was looking to deep for a subject :oops: :roll:

Jetty

I reckon the one leading to the pontoon in the middle of the picture is a Jetty but I quite expect Mick F to come along and say I've got my nautical terminology all wrong :wink: .

K is for King. Possibly his Head, his Arms or perhaps his Burger :roll: .

Dunno really. :lol:
They both look like jetties to me.
My dictionary states that a jetty is a landing stage or small pier at which boats can dock or be moored.

I considered playing silly burgers, as Gaz suggested, but opted for a quick ride down the lane. This is a standing stone across the road from The Rollright Stones ( a stone circle).

I'll have a think about "L", and post later.

OK, then. Here's the challenge. Can someone cheer me up with a representation of "Levity"?

Excellent choice. I stopped at the King's Men on my first UK based cycle tour a quarter century or so ago. Although I can't recall seeing the King Stone it's brought back some fond memories. I'll have to get my maps back out and take a closer look over that trip.

I took a ride out today to inspect the repairs the Highways Agency have made to a nearby cycletrack.

They've made a good job, apart form one unexpected addition.

Fork in the road?


Will that do?

Well done, gaz; I, for one, would be happy with that! I've been riding around looking for people 'having a laugh': wearing deely-boppers, sharing a joke, or even levitating. Not many to be found in the local lanes.

Now then, something beginning with 'M' - but slightly less cryptic, maybe?

M is for March. Military, protest or just wait until it's Sunday :wink:
