When in doubt use a photo of Golders Green. This is roughly from where I used to wait for the bus home every day from school.

Lisa, so glad to hear you have a new camera! Hooray!

Shelley, I love your kissing finches.

I think I'm suffering from "military-itis", which is the strong urge to move every two years. I'm so tired of living in the desert (we've been here 2 years now) that I haven't been taking many photos. But I did take this picture of some flowers that I bought for my daughter for her 9th birthday, which was yesterday. I thought they were lovely.

They're zebra finches - in typical pose for this species

These racing yachts might be identical twins I reckon.

Great photos everyone! I do so enjoy seeing what you all "see."

Djsgal, it took me about 15 years to stop getting "military-itis." Now I'm just amazed that we have been in the same house for 18 years! "Stuff" just keep piling up

Here's what I saw the other day. Something was burning and I never did see what it was, but it sure blackened the sky for awhile.

A tired gull resting on the beach path. He recovered and flew off after a few minutes.

I can't help thinking that black-headed gull was quite sick, as they're normally very lively birds - but that's nature, and a beautiful image nonetheless.
The black, or more accurately dark brown, head is only visible during the breeding season.

Here's a nice set of bird tables for sale.

That's a sad thought - and not very nice of me to take a photo of it's last moments, but we decided it must have just been tired. We also initially thought it must have been injured or sick as it did not seem to mind us being close. We were discussing what to do about it when it just flew off into the field. Maybe it just had enough energy to get away from the prying humans before giving up altogether, but it seemed ok.

Hey, don't feel guilty; it's an interesting image and a quite beautiful one. I'd have photographed it too!
Wikipedia has some nice images in both summer breeding and winter plumage.

Gulls generally drive me nuts! I live by the river and people feed them so they screech and fight and then mess on my balcony. I have gull spikes fitted to my roof to stop them perching but they still deposit everything as they fly over. It was nice to see the real beauty of this bird close up, as normally I don't have a good word to say about them. Geese, however - they are something else.....

I agree with you,Susan, Gulls are considered vermin in Cornwall. Anyway, that one does look beautiful.

Here is a shot I took of the Grand Pier at Weston-Super-Mare in Somerset which I took last year. Sadly it caught fire a couple of months ago & the main building (on the right) was completely destroyed. The owners have vowed to rebuild it but I doubt it will ever be the same.

Oh, I loved that pier as a kid. We used to go on day trips to Weston from Gloucester. What a sad shame.

It is a great shame, I spent many happy hours on the pier too. The only good thing is that it happened early in the morning and nobody was injured. The speed that the fire spread throughout the wooden structure, it might have been a different story a few hours later.

My grandma is lucky enough to live next to these woods and open space in Mill Hill which I can also see from my bedroom here as it's high on a hill.

Here is some classic Arts and Crafts architecture in Muswell Hill. The main period was in the Edwardian and just after although there's nothing stopping anyone making them afterwards.

This is Hoglands, home of world famous modernist sculptor Henry Moore
It's in the nearby village of Perry Green, and is now part of the Henry Moore Foundation Centre.
