Week 29 September 2020 to 6 October 2020
Posted By: MarkJerling, 09-29-2020, 02:39 PM

Contest ends at midnight on October 6, 2020

Any forum member may invent and post a caption for the photo as a reply in this thread.

All readers of the thread, including those posting captions are encouraged to vote for any and all of the captions they appreciate by "Liking" them using the Forum's LIKE feature ('thumbs up" turns green when clicked). At the end of the contest period, the host will compare the votes and report who won. In the case of a tie, the Host will break the tie (possibly a third entry), but will not otherwise submit a caption or vote.

The winner will be notified ASAP by the current host by PM and posting the winner in this thread. The new Host should post a link in this thread to the new contest thread.

Submissions should be via text (no video or audio files) - any caption, limerick, motivational poem or verse or prose is permitted - whatever inspires you to describe the photo or catch attention. Contestants may submit more than one entry but it must be in a separate post for voting purposes.

IMPORTANT:

Even if you do not submit an entry, please "like" any postings you feel deserve it as this is how the winner is chosen. If you DO SUBMIT an entry, please also find an entry that you like among your competitors efforts and "like" at least one of them as well. Enter often, vote more often, and most importantly, HAVE FUN !!! Remember, you can 'vote' for more than one entry if you choose to do so.

If the image is too big for you, edit your account "Settings and Options" for a smaller display size.

Steve paused and stepped back from his matchstick model and realised that maybe 1:1 scale WAS just too big for his study after all.

What's the probability it will collapse on my watch? Fifty percent: it may collapse or may not.

It's the 6th here, but not by most of you yet, so about a day remaining to submit and vote.

Congratulations to @Astro-Baby our winner.

For those interested, that photo was taken shortly after the second Christchurch Earthquake. After the first earthquake, a steel frame was erected to support the damaged end wall between the remains of the fallen towers. The second earthquake took the wall down which left the frame standing there pretty useless.
