This is one of the facets of the fountain in Glasgow green was a tribute to Queen Victoria who adorns the top of the fountain, on each side they had designs to commenmorate the different areas of the Union. This one is Canada, i felt was so wonderfully made.

This is the statue of Samuel Stone a Puritan minister born in 1602. The statue stands near the centre of our county town Hertford.
Samuel Stone was the co-founder of Hartford, Connecticut, where an
identical statue stands

I went to the fair this afternoon, and these two were pulling a wagon around the same track that held the dirt bike races a couple of weeks ago.

Crikey Liz, I only just spotted you used to live in Surrey - I didn't realise you lived over here as well! I've been around a lot of it in the past collecting train tickets including where you were, it's a very nice part of the world.

Here are two more buses at the Cobham museum, the one on the right has been converted from a double decker to a service vehicle.

I am currently taking a course in digital photography. This photo was part of last week's homework. It is the one and only flower that my hibiscus produced.

You will have to keep us advised how you like your digital course. Hopefully it is great fun along with the learning experience.

Hibicus are beautiful plants and it seems there is a variety that only produces a bloom, when the previous one "expires". Actually, I don't know if it's a variety, but I had many in my backyard in Texas which displayed that single bloom trait. Yet other plants would be full of flowers. They are so bright and gorgeous it is worth the effort of growing them.

Walking along a river path and only one tree had these tag-a-longs growing at it's base. I read somewhere "Mushrooms taste like a secret" which stuck in my mind. Unfortunately the author's name did not so I am unable to give the quote proper credit.

Nearly every house built in this country for the last 10-20 years thought it was Victorian, as if we hadn't got enough. Here's a refreshing diversion from the ancient in Wimbledon.

Professer, your photograph is Aechmea fasciata, a bromeliad native to Brazil.
A very nice specimen too for a Glasgow climate; I'm guessing it was growing in a conservatory?

Couldnt agree more with djsgal - the toadstool photograph is amazing and well worth a prize. How about we vote at the end of each month as to which we think is the best photograph?

I'd really rather not. Making this into a contest would take a lot of the fun out of it for me.

Well perhaps not, but at least we are free to state our own particular favourite. Tred - what camera are you using - have been promised a new one, so would be happy for some insight.

Thanks to djsgal and Sherry for the kind words. It's always nice when a scene simply presents itself and you have to do little more than snap.

I have always been a Minolta fan. I am using the Maxxum 5D (an SLR Digital so it still has the bulky appearance of the 35 mm cameras)developed by Minolta but brought out under the Konica-Minolta name after Konica bought out Minolta. Not too long after, both names have dissapeared from the camera scene and no new models are being developed. Much to my regret. I have still been able to find Minolta lenses which is good because they made exquisite glass.

The digital format is such a breeze it makes the hobby that much more enjoyable.

It's the end of August so this thread is now locked. A new thread has been started for September's photos. Thanks to everyone.
