If I didn't know any better David, I'd say that I'm almost positive at least one of the modern glass houses you have photographed has been featured in the show "Grand Designs".

Well there was one in East Finchley I took some years ago quite similar to this which was on it, which is how I knew it was there, but could well have done another without realising it. I wonder which one it would have been?

This is a (slightly slanting) view of the centre of Hampstead where I both went to school and worked, in two locations next to this spot.

Aw, what a cutie, picqero.

This is my best shot of a California quail, which I took yesterday. Sorry for the poor quality, but they are speedy little guys!

The photos are just great. The weather here has been just dreary. Cloudy and cold. If it weren't for my daffodils coming up I'd start getting depressed.

Well at least I have the photos here to cheer me up.

After MANY tries, I finally got a picture of the woodpecker who frequents our birdfeeder!

I love all the pictures of the animals

Cinnam0n, that picture is just beautiful! What a gorgeous woodpecker!

Great woodpecker photo! Patience pays, eh?

Here's another pretty tree that has just come into bloom. This one is at the end of my street.

Such cute little babies, picqero!

Heading east out of the Bankhead Tunnel (my last photo) just a couple of miles is the USS Alabama sitting proudly at Battleship Park in Mobile Bay. This is a glancing photo because I was traveling at the time. One day, I hope to stop and get better photos and tour her. Here is more information about the Hero of the Pacific.

What a variety; battleship, woodpecker, and even a baby. I'm amazed Liz, that you have such pretty blossom so soon after your long winter.
This is a field of oilseed rape - a common sight around here in Spring. The term 'rape' incidently is latin for turnip!


Here's a wider angle image

Picqero, I think it is knowing that those pretty blossoms will soon follow the snow that makes a long winter bearable, for me at any rate Your photo of the oilseed rape reminds me of the last time I was in the UK at this time of year. We drove from the south of England to Aberdeen, and so many of the fields we passed were that brilliant yellow.

Today is Mother's Day in this part of the world, so here's Mum opening one of her presents.

Great photos, all. Your mum looks lovely in yellow, Liz.

Here are a couple of desert flowers. Always amazes me what can grow in dusty dirt.

Here's a famous architect deisgned row of houses in Hampstead which are open to the public on certain days. When I saw the price I walked the other way. Now you pay that much just to park there...

Besides photos of sunsets, here's my other favorite subject: cars. This was taken in Phoenix last week at the place where I saw the other car with the Gangster picture on the trunk. I don't know what kind of car this is, though. I looked, but now I've forgotton.

One of the two remaining old town gates, which is hidden away down a dead end side street and usually missed by vistors and tourists.



More information here - although when I googled this, there seems to be some doubt as to whether Friar Aleyn did in fact write the first Biography in the English language.

Clarasue, the grille would have given away more but the tail end looks fairly distinctive so should get an ID within the hour (I have a library here).

Every so often you get a photo which just looks right. Here's one I took today in Kenwood which is part of Hampstead Heath.

In the 1950's, my parents had a "Hudson." It looked similiar to your pic, ClaraSue.

Re: the car photo I posted. I asked my husband and he said that it was an Oldsmobile 88. Since I didn't get a picture of the grill, it's anybody's guess whether it's a 1948, 1949, or 1950. But we have it narrowed down to that.
