Katt saw all the doggy photos here, and demanded equal time!

It's a little after midnight, I think, but I've just got home from a nice civilized eighteenth-century day in London - Hogarth at the Tate in the afternoon and Handel at the Coliseum in the evening. I don't want to replicate the London sights that are already on the web, so here's a little statue of Emmeline Pankhurst, thanks to whom British women have the unspeakable happiness of being able to choose between Tony Cameron and David Blair or whatever their names are.

TabbyTom your pictures of Hasting are wonderful. Have been trying to think of places to take photos of in my town but have not come up with anything yet. Thank you for the images.



This was taken outside my back door on friday. We have not had rain for over a month, it is very dry and the storm started with some hail but fortunately no damage and we got a good shower.

Lady1, I love your South African pics as well. No rain for more than a month, eh? We had nearly five inches of it here last month, and we'll be getting more later today, so I got up and about early. Here's another bit of Tudor Hastings - a house that may or may (or may not) have once belonged to the family of Admiral Shovell.

A revolting day today, cold. I really didn't fancy going out so I talked to the cat and this is him giving me the evil eye!

It is sunny here today, but still too cold to go walkabout in my town with a camera. I therefore opted to take a 'cute' photo of Winston with my 40+ year old Teddy.

It was a beautiful first day of Spring here. Didn't even need my coat to go outside! So this picture is in honour of Spring. I took it this afternoon when on a walk with my sister and our family dog.

The gatehouse of Battle Abbey - unlike most of the rest of the abbey, it's still standing.

I love your photos, TT, and appreciate you taking the time to choose some great sights for our benefit! In fact, I really enjoy looking at all the photos, and seeing a 'snapshot' of the daily lives and locations of all those who post in this thread.

I haven't had time to take snaps of the wonderful towns, coastline or villages nearby . . . yet, so today I decided to photograph my local church. It's quite striking from the outside, with it's pyramid-style roof. The original traditional church was levelled during the war, and this modern one was built over 50 years ago.

This afternoon I went to the garden centre to buy some lovely blue pots in which to put some begonias this summer. I asked permission to take some photos (didn't want them to think I was from a rival establishment ) and then went to talk to the myhna bird who told me "It's obvious int it?". These were rather cute...

Putting out the recycling is a regular Monday evening chore, so I thought that would make a suitable subject for Monday's photo.

This photo of the Duke of Wellington sitting astride 'Copenhagen' wasn't taken today but it could have been, or even taken tomorrow. He's been there since 1884 with no changes planned. Some say the bronze statue should be moved to a more prominent place. There's a busy road Roundabout a hundred or so yards away. A main junction for turning towards to Aldershot town. He would sit well there I think.

When we were children, we heard that a workman helping to erect the statue wasn't quick enough to move his bottle of beer and lunch and it got bricked up inside the plinth. If ever they move the statue, we'll find out if the rumour is true

Last night at sunset the sky was red. This was the best pic I took, the others were a bit dark as I took them into the sun.

I love Sue's sinister-looking cat - and Katt is cute: I used to have a little she-cat who looked very similar.

It's a miserable morning here, so I think I'll skulk indoors and post another pic from yesterday. This is the parish church at Battle.

The weather isn't wonderful here but not bad enough to prevent me popping out to remove these lovely pots from my car, a Christmas gift from a certain lady in Hong Kong...



Whilst I was at the garden centre I saw some containers so bought one for a shelf on my nice pristine garden wall.

Edited to remove my illicit extra photo!

A local retail park where I just bought a camera case for the camera I took this photo with.

It is bright and sunny today, and I had to go out anyway, so I took my camera. After taking a couple of shots, though, my hands were so numb I was afraid I'd drop the camera. The best I managed was this somewhat long shot of the local fair grounds and harness racing track. That's the grandstand on the left.

I've seen Warrior Square in St Leonards described as "Regency," though it wasn't built till the 1850s. Since then it's been "improved" by blocks like the one in the centre.

My mother divided one of her plants and gave it to me. This one popped up in my Amarilla plant, odd because I'm almost certain it is a bulb. Am waiting for it to finish flowering so I can remove it and put it in it's own pot. I have no idea what it is - anyone know?

This is my first attempt so don't know if it's going to work or not, but here goes - it's a photo of our latest grandchild 'Luke' who was born last week! He was 2 days old when this was taken, and weighed nearly 8 pounds at birth!
Please don't worry that he appears to be sitting upright with his head unsupported - it's an optical illusion, and he was lying down in a soft depression in the giant teddy's belly, with his dad right next to him too!

This morning I went to the hospital for my routine blood test so took a photo of the nurse, then when I told her it was for my photo-a-day she asked me not to upload it to any website. I took a couple of photos of ambulances, very exciting, and then some shots of the bay on my way home.

Finally I settled for the results of me with a can of spray paint, tomorrow when it is dry it can go back up on the shelf on the garden wall.

What fine taste in colours, Sue. That's exactly the shade of blue on my car.

And, to add - Aramis' fine looking grandson is the nicest sight I've seen all day. How giddy all of you must be!

I have always loved both old cars and anything made of wood. Needless to say, I couldn't resist this beauty, which came complete with candy, when I found it at a Christmas fair last year.

Mink aren't an indigenous animal in the UK, but there now quite a number living wild. In a number of cases they were illegally 'released' by animal rights activists in protest against the fur trade. Unfortunately they are a perfect killer, and wreak havoc with local wildlife. This one was photographed in one of our local bird sanctuaries at Rye Meads.
