Gorgeous sunset! Thanks for all the nice comments on my butterfly, I was quite happy with it. Thanks too for identifying the flower, Jar, I had no idea what it was.

This is also a pic from yesterday, and is the Glenora Ferry, crossing the bay from the county to the mainland. My sister tells me that it's a year-round service.

A card I made last night.

Fraffly posh entrance to the school I mentioned. The guard opened my car door and bowed deeply, murmuring 'Welcome Lady Sara...'
I had a VIP tour and a wonderful dinner!

Lady Sara!

Quote:

Sue, does the glass-breaking would-be Beckham ever pay for replacement glass or acknowledge his destructive aim?




After telling him on numerous occasions that I would be far less angry if he came and told me instead of letting me find it for myself he actually told me about this latest two panes. I think he has now learnt that although obviously not delighted I did appreciate him owning up and thanked him for telling me. His father always mends then but often takes his time about it. I would say that he has probably broken about twelve panes so far, normally about four each year I suppose.

Congratulations, Kapuskasing! I don't think I ever managed to win anything at a fairground.

This is Gloucester Lodge, one of the earlier buildings of James Burton's St Leonards.

Nice card, Copago. Wow Ren, just think, you'll be called Lady Sara once a week now! And Taesma, I agree that New Mexico has some of the most beautiful sunsets in America. And I'm not just saying that because I'm from there.

It's monsoon season in the desert southwest right now and we've been getting a lot of rain daily. It's nice to see the rainbow now and again. This was taken just outside of Barstow, California.

That is amazing, the optical illusion giving the colour divide of the sky. It was only when I masked the rainbow that I could see the sky was probably just one shade of grey.

I'm embarrassed to admit it, Sue, but I never noticed that before. Now that I look at the big picture, I can't believe I didn't catch that.

Cute card Copago and a nice photo of the rainbow ClaraSue.

We live about 1 hour from Lake Winnipeg which is quite large. This is a photo of the marina in Gimli. Many Icelandic immigrants settled here and so they have a large Icelandic Festival every year.

This is the church of St. Mary le Strand in central London. It's the official church of the Womens Royal Naval Service, the Wrens, and was the church in which the parents of Victorian author Charles Dickens were married.
You can have the London bus and the red telephone box for nothing

Need the loo? You can't use this one (just by the man in the doorway) but it's a good display of outdoor bathroom fittings in Finchley.

I dread to think how many passing kids try and use it when the boss isn't looking. I would have...

One of the places we stopped in the county the other day sold wrought iron of all sorts. I thought this 'gathering of eagles' worthy of a shot.

Congratulations on your first photo posting, it really is a beautiful dress.
Is it based on the traditional dress of a different culture or era?

I'm not sure, I mentioned to a friend that I needed something to dress up in in she bought out that. It fitted perfectly as well.

Wow, that is a great motion photo. I'm not much of a car person but that is something I would put as my desktop if I didn't have something else already.

I love the rainbow, ClaraSue - and the gathering storm clouds, Ren.

When I was a kid in Hastings there were seven cinemas in the town. Coming back now, this seems to be the only survivor. I remember it as the Gaiety, but it's been taken over by the Odeon chain, and the Victorian facade has had to be defaced with their logo. The corner bit used to be a little pub (maybe the theatre bar when it opened as a theatre/music hall in the 1880s).

I never tire of looking at other people's photos. I've always been interested in looking at vacation pics and old photos even if I didn't know the people involved. Great pictures, everyone!

I didn't have a new photo today so this one comes from the arhives of my photos. I took this at my parents house in Arizona last winter and I use it as my wallpaper on my computer.

A very flattering view of East End Road, Finchley, from my friend's 4th floor balcony.

Would you buy a car from these girls - it would probably have to be a Ferrari!
Taken at a public open day at one of our local dealers. They hold a public event twice a year, and have all sorts of attractions, including these models of course. The emphasis is on families, and there are many childrens' attractions - all free! My wife does facepainting for them.

Welcome to the photo gallery lavenlaar, great shot. Gee Picqero couldn't you have gotten more of the car in the shot, especially if it was a Ferrari.

This is another bronze by local artist Leo Mol.

You are right ClaraSue, the pics here are just fascinating. I love that snapdragon too, can nearly hear the bee.
My Summer School class are at last realising that I WANT them to talk in the lesson, so here they are 'chatting to a partner.' Some look quite animated for once!
