Nice equipment Ren, compact stack and huge screen. I particularly like the coloured spots on the mat.
As it's raining today here's another from yesterday's Henlys Corner trip, one of my 'signs in context' shots, showing familiar local names plus their surroundings.

What a contrast today in London, from yesterday's blue skies - cold, wet and dismal all day.
This is the Burlington Arcade, London's oldest and probably most expensive shopping mall, see Burlington_Arcade

Here's my photo-of-the-day that I actually took TODAY. Finally got a photo of one of the hummingbirds that visits outside my kitchen window.

My sister and brother-in-law just got back from a trip to Turkey. I asked them to bring me something from Gallipoli, and they didn't disappoint!



I love maps, and collect T shirts (wear them, too), so I'm well pleased.

This parade of shops in Golders Green probably has the most Jewish restaurants outside anywhere in Israel.



You can see the results of the weather picqero was talking about.

What do you know! I do like this feeder, it's lightweight and won't shatter if it blows off the hook like the glass ones. It also doesn't have any yellow on it, which attracts bees and wasps. Wish I could find another one!


Here's my photo, which I took last Sunday. I was making a red velvet cake for my daughter's birthday, but we ran out of red food coloring. Had to suppliment with some blue, so of course the batter turned out lavender! So it was lavender velvet cake.

I was a bit worried then - thought the pot of coloured mix was the hummingbird feeder
A few years ago I visited friends in Orange County, California, and remarked on the delightful hummingbirds feeding on their garden flowers. To my amazement, they told me they'd never noticed them, and thought they were just large bees - and that's a true story!
These are three of my grandchildren, of two different families!

Goodness me, I stood right there when David Blaine was up in his box. No swimmer there then. I think it could refer to the only way anyone will be able to travel through London once Ken's completed his mission to get us all off the roads.

That is beautiful, bhs63! Photo looks professional! Excellent equipment, I'm guessing.

Thanks, Veronikka. I use a Canon Rebel digital.

It's the next day so I'll post this other pic of the same butterfly. I like this one because it is heart-shaped in this pose.

Welcome Peggy, always room for one more.

Here is a photo of the Misty Fjords in New Zealand.

beautiful shot, and so clear. Pity you'd already posted the cockroach image in this week's theme, though maybe that was more imaginitive!
Welcome Peggy, and looking forward to more 'kiwi' shots from you.
I'd appreciate it if anyone can identify these flowers; some sort of sunflower perhaps? The flowers are about 3 inches (75 cm) diameter.

Those are black-eyed Susans.

The cockroach pic gives me the willies. I'll be glad when the theme changes - LOL
