good one(asuming you mean the steam engine) PP.

@REiKo Rhoemer. By deciphering it you have shown your perseverance already. I will make it up for you. If you win, you may choose a theme in your language. :wink: Which one is that by the way?

@the blenderizer. Hmm, that one is interesting. Did not have it in mind but the theme is open to whatever interpretation of course.

Good luck to everyone!

Teld: Yeah. My perseverance will be unleashed on Monday, when I post my entry ;). I will see if I post theme in Czech language. But first … I MUST WIN to do that :).

Anyway, for first time I have seen the theme I thought it is word “perversity”, then “persistance”. After longer observation I managed it is “perseverance” - unknown word to me till this day :).

Can someone link the rules here please?

Here we are.
I feel I should explain this one. Bikers use some wierd terminology, and in their patois “crank” means to pedal really hard, especially uphill or to catch up and get ahead of others. The picture of perseverance, right?
I can’t say it’s a pure entry. Blurring and softglow added in GIMP. Abstract heavenliness!
