Here is a Prairie Icon. An old wooden grain elevator.





This is one of 5 elevators in Inglis, Manitoba that have been turned into museums. They have a guide who takes you inside and shows you how they worked etc. It was very interesting for a city boy.

That's an amazing photo of the ghost. There may be some rational explanation for it, but I don't discount the possibility of ghosts just because I haven't seen one (yet). I haven't seen Mount Everest either, but I'm pretty sure that it exists!
Lisa, that aircraft is a B52 which is nowhere near as pretty as the Lancaster we had the other day, even if it was designed to do the same job.

Here's a train from New York. I didn't dare get my camera out while I was in the subway, no sense tempting fate, but this is one of the regional service trains.

I'd love to do the grain elevator tour. Have always wondered how they worked.

This big old house was built in the "Second Empire" style for a wealthy banker, back in the 1880s, and now houses the county museum (which I have yet to visit). I've passed it on the bus many times, but today it was on my walking route, so I got some photos.

McNifti looks so beautiful Nifti; thank you. He has that eye contact with you. This was my beloved Cocoa, i miss him terribly, terribly, we went everywhere together. He was an incredibly loving and smart dog. My best friend. Cocoa was an Irish Setter Chocolate Lab X .

Those elevators are becoming ghosts of the past. I have a friend who went around the prairies, photographing what is left, for posterity. It was lovely to see yours. We always went with my Dad to unload the grain, have it weighed, etc. etc. What memories.

Great photos all. Here is part of Laycock Village which is owned and beautifully maintained by the National Trust. No TV aerials or other signs of modern life are allowed on the buildings which are used for films etc. Pride and Prejudice and many others were filmed there.

Yes I think they were taken away soon after. Lots of cars do get parked in the street there during the day, It seems a shame to me.

Lovely pictures, everyone. That village looks so pretty, ren!

Here's a pretty canal barge I snapped recently at Falkirk.

Nifti, I've sent you a message with a researcher I know locally. He should be able to help.

This is Woodcroft Park in Mill Hill looking very similar to the grasslands of Africa. Almost. I've never stopped and looked there before but when you've got a camera you stop wherever you are and look around for good shots where you previously drove straight ahead.

Another great month of photos! I can't believe the month of July is almost over. But what would July be without kids playing in water? This was taken near downtown Shreveport, Louisiana on a (very) hot Sunday afternoon.

Satguru....Thank you so much.........I'm on to it!!
I took this picture in Callender, this is not my collie though it does look remarkably like her. I believe the two outside dogs are Belgian Shepherds but stand to be corrected!

This photo is from our volcano tour of the "Big Island" of Hawaii - Kilauea volcano/Halemaumau crater - taken from Volcano House.

Kilauea is currently the most active volcano on earth. In Hawaiian, Kilauea means "spewing" or "much spreading".

The gases that you can see coming from the volcano are referred to as "vog" (some say it is an acronym standing for Volcanic Organic Gases, others say it is a portmanteau word, a combination of "volcanic" and "smog"). According to Wikipedia, Kilauea emits an estimated 2,000 tons of vog every day.
