Here is a sweet one... summer evening in the garden a couple of years ago, leaves of a honeysuckle surrounding the back door.

Here is a good one, but it needs a bit of preamble...

Three or four years ago during a warm spell in the summer I had put a jug of water in the fridge to chill. I forgot about it for a couple of days and it seems that the temperature setting on the fridge was awry, because the water slowly froze solid. However it froze in a strange and very controlled way, creating beautiful and regular streamers of bubbles.

I was so impressed I took some photos in my phone, see attached...

The last photo, with its silvery streamers, particularly impressed me. And I started idly playing around with the filters in my phone to see how it would look with enhanced colour. One of my efforts look particularly enchanting....

...But it was then that I noticed one of the bubbles had a striking and peculiar character to it. Zooming in I was astonished to see the chubby little face of a Chaucerian character In a hat!

Welcome @Godafoss30 !

and yes, you seem to have failed your takeaway box at some existential level :rollingw:

I've been a long time lurker (~15yrs?) but this is my first post. The box my Chinese takeaway was delivered in looks a bit fed up.

Welcome @Godafoss30 !

and yes, you seem to have failed your takeaway box at some existential level :rollingw:

I think you've captured the precise moment that the box has realised the bleakness of its existence.
