    Had to think about this quickly, so it'll be a looser theme than the last one I set (he says, to sighs of relief no doubt). So... Journey.

    "August is the cruellest month" is surely how TS Eliot would have opened The Wasteland if he had experienced the unique pleasures of living or working in Edinburgh during the festival season. Tourists descend on the city in ever greater numbers, and the already poor bus routing groans nearly to a standstill. Travel is certainly on my mind this month... My avoidance technique will be to use my bike more and reap the benefits of increased mobility. In addition I've just bought an action camera to record my journeys (or more accurately the idiots who try to spoil them) so it does seem especially pertinent as a theme.

    So what does it mean?

    The general emotion of travel, freedom, getting out there?

    Moments and memories captured whilst in the act of travelling?

    Answer - all of the above, and more. If you want to show a metaphorical journey that's OK too.

    Archive shots are welcome but please mark as such. Stretch the definition of the theme or stick to it religiously and literally, I don't mind. But we embark on journeys all the time, so let's go on some together this month. :)

    Both are views of the Liverpool docks, but I am glad to say that the ruined pierhead is being re-developed as we speak

    Love the way you get the Box Brownie in, Zou!

    Must develop some of my backlog and get mine out again...

    A band on tour, a Brazilian on a European trip. Oh, and a penis.

    Agreed. If that was me, it would be, "Bollocks, come and pick up your own food"!

    The journey started in the Atlas mountains with his parents and will finish in the Arctic circle with his grand children, before making the return trip.
