Crescendo

I know that this won't have quite the dramatic impact as my last shot but I need to return to my own base level of ability now...the last one was a blip I think!!  Thanks again for all the wonderful comments, I think a new top for me!

This was the actual start of the race, the noise was absolutely incredible...but intoxicating at the same time.  Who cares if it made your ears bleed!!

All the best for the weekend.

I think this is my 300th post...not bad having taken 9000 shots over the period!!!

Congrats Simon!!
BeakerSt: Thanks Petra, without the 'Community Spirit' I would have probably disappeared a long time ago, so thanks to you guys.

how rude, forgot the image! lol

A very apt image to celebrate with, really like the defocused background and clarity of the subject.

But I bet I could still hear your grumbles about my composition over the noise of that air horn! lol
BeakerSt: Mine are mere opinions a bit like an old man in a pub complaining for the sake of it. I get it from my Dad, bless him, but I do always maintain that if I make a comment it's because I really really like the shot I've seen.

That is no mean feat. Must have been all that travelling time in planes that stopped you reaching 10,000 images. The siren exclaiming the feat is very apt. congrats Simon and don't forget to take your tablets now that you are 300.
BeakerSt: Cheers nev, thanks for the support along the way

oh yeah and keep posting those wonderful symmetry shots you are so good at.
BeakerSt: ...good point, not done one for a while!
super composition and congrats on the 300...
ps. wouldnt mind a few more blips...
BeakerSt: I think we are all here looking for the 'blips'...and luckily we all have them now and again! Thanks Samarth
Congrats on the 300th. Judging from the color scheme, you are celebrating it like Christmas. I like the shot especially because the hand looks old and full of character.
BeakerSt: Cheers Martin

What better way to celibrate the 300th than with a loud noise, well captured.
BeakerSt: Thanks Les smile
Belated congrats Simon, a very apt shot for the occasion. Looking forward to many more. What's the challenge for this month?
BeakerSt: Hi PP, thanks for the comment. I was going to take a week off with the challenge this month and leave the next one till August 1st. I got feedback that people appreciated a few more days to submit an image.

I've also got last months entries to review and publish...hopefully I'll get that done tonight/tomorrow.

All the best, Simon

Another great take Simon. Another different take on a familiar scene.
Congrats on 300 too! You're a staple site as part of my 'working' day, though since I'm posting this late I obviously miss up occasionally smile

Also, does that mean we've missed 8,700 of your shots! Come on!!
Noisy celebration of your 300! Congratulations and I hope to continue enjoying your photographic occurrences! wink
BeakerSt: Thanks very much, it's been a long road!
