I’m going to have to rely on the archive for this Midweek Madness Challenge…

I think we’ll go in reverse order…

Index Finger – and Middle finger, is all that was between this shot and a goal…

Northwood 2 v Wingate & Finchley 2, FA Cup

…Gav deflected it onto the crossbar๐Ÿ˜Ž

Independent – A term used by bus enthusiasts for any operator outside of corporations, transport executives and the national bus company – In Doncaster you could find lots of South Yorkshire PTE buses and some independent operators…

SYPTE 1023 (NWX873K) & 1217 (DDT217H) with Leon 84 (SNN5L) at Doncaster, DEC82

…Like this Leon’s bus sandwiched between two South Yorkshire PTE vehicles.

Ice – Forming the surface of a pond on Hampstead Heath…

…and a Heron practising its skating skills๐Ÿ˜…

Iris – What more needs to be said?…

Yellow Iris

I’m actually posting this on time – if there is such a thing in the WordPressiverse ๐Ÿ˜‚ This Midweek Madness Challenge should be quite easy but there’s always some room for misinterpretation ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ‘

Lets go for the easy start – Here’s a Train…

377435 at Clapham Junction

…and standing next to the cab, talking to the driver, is the Dispatcher – a key member of staff on busy platforms like at Clapham Junction to ensure passenger safety.

You can usually rely on plants for this sort of challenge – Here’s a Scabious flower…

Scabious

…and, although the name suggests it’s blue, it looks very Lilac to me!

Here’s Oliver…

Oliver Tambo

…Exiled from his native South Africa, Oliver Tambo made his home in Muswell Hill and fought the political battle against the Apartheid South African Regime from there.

Lets finish on a bright note – a vivid Pink…

Pink Rhododendron

Cee’s photo has a number of suggested subjects this month – ‘house, building, construction, lumber, basement, steps, window, reflection…’ So let’s see what we can come up with for this Midweek Madness Challenge๐Ÿ‘

Lets start with Steps and Building…

La Siesta

…And the building is predominantly White.

Window – well quite a few windows…

Windows

Some Outdoor Stairs…

Xstrata Tree Top Walkway

…This is Xstrata at Kew Gardens and is a bit of an Oddball installation as it allows visitors to walk in the tree canopy. It also sways quite a bit๐Ÿ˜…

And finally, a Fire Escape…
