    Inspired by the list of previous topics and in particular Geren's fast thirds of some time back, I looked up my house on What3words and discovered that my greenhouse was (nearly - I've changed it a little to protect my location, and ended up in the Nevada sagebrush) boxes.dormant.mysteries - a phrase redolent of new life waiting to burst from the seeds sown therein.

    I thought that was rather good, so let's go with Dormant - I think that's different enough to obscured, but close enough that Zou might get his images in.

    Post what you want - hot, cold, in the pot nine days old.

    Good luck!
    (and remember, filth will be judged highly - cricketing erotic vegetable selfies especially)

    Ha, just found my bike shed contains the word handlebar!

    As for dormant, surely just an excuse for a thread of sleeping cats, right?

    Volcanoes can be dormant, as can their namesake god...

    Bobby wasn't sleeping, but he was waiting for a while which is much the same thing...

    Hmm, might have to scour the archives for shots of whisky casks...

    What3words is a great app. We use it for Airbnb guests. I just looked now at my exact location as I’m lying in bed. Two of the words are pillow and lizard. :)

    (It's no longer there, the building they're replacing it with is coming on leaps and bounds).

    He's not dormant, just resting. Shot very early in my DSLR ownership with a friend's Tamron, which I didn't find out until I got back home was front focussing the whole time on my 600D.

    Sure, this is a captive beast, but I was always pleased with these two shots, something slightly different I thought.

    Dormant as in "not dead, only sleeping"? You planning another Jurassic Park somewhere? ;)
