Welcome to the November photo thread. The October thread will be left open for a while to allow for World time zones. It will close it once it is November 1st for everyone. Post in either thread (but not both) until then.

If anyone needs information on how to post photos, it can be found in the 'Photo posting guide' located at the top of the forum.

This is the flower on the Camellia Sinensis -- the tea plant. I planted two bushes in my yard last year and harvested the leaves to make my own green tea.

He's a brilliant Harry Potter lookalike; could be a part time job for him
We didn't get any Halloween callers last night, though had sweets and money ready for them. Maybe the adverse publicity has kept them all at home?
Saw this well carved pumpkin head at a Celtic re-enactment camp this afternoon.

If you have a view like this you don't need to go away anywhere. One more from Hampstead Garden Suburb

I must add a quick note of apology here to say that I wasn't thinking when I added the photo of my son here. He obviously belongs in the Family Photos thread, however I wasn't thinking of it being a family photo as much as I was that it was a Halloween pic. Since I've already placed a pic of my hubby in the Family thread today I can't even move this one over there as that would be a double-post for the day. Sorry if I've confused anyone else....

Beautiful 'tea' flower, what a treat to grow your own. The sun rays are beautiful Copago, i have heard them called "fingers of God", an effect in many renaissance paintings.

I loved this photo, almost missed the shot last week walking. Happened to turn around to look behind me... golden maples were overhanging the river, reflecting so beautifully through a small gap in the trees ... as you see had to get to ground level ... it was like liquid gold - love it when one of those "magic" shots happen, i hope you like it too.

I agree about the postcards, Copago. There are so many here that would be fantastic cards! Beautiful shot, Shelley! BurgGurl, your son makes a great Harry Potter. My nephew looked so much like Harry Potter a few years back that he quit wearing his glasses to work. He couldn't get any work done with all the kids coming to ask for autographs!

This squirrel played peek-a-boo with me for awhile this afternoon.

Beautiful golden shot mcshellsie, just lovely. I love the cheeky squirrel, too.

This little patch of rough water caught my eye the other day.

Hi! Just wanted to let you know that I am still around and enjoying your photos, but for some reason I can no longer get Photobucket to upload my photos, so I can't post any. Does anyone know why Photobucket no longer appears to be working?

McShellsie! What a fabulous moment to capture. The result is stunning. Love Clara Sue's little peeping friend, too.

I don't know about Photobucket MotherGoose as I've never used it. You might try Flickr or ImageShack. I like both sites.

thank you all. that is one cute cheeky little squirrel clara sue:) very rough water sp.liz...dangerous. MG,wish i could help, p.bucket has been working for me without a problem.



Seaplanes at dock in downtown inner harbour ... it is a shorter commute to the mainland than taking the ferry which only leaves every two hours, perhaps three now that it is "winter". That particular dock actually had three more planes on the other side of it, that you can't see in the photo. Several companies operate out of the harbour. It is thirty miles across the Strait of Georgia to Vancouver, a 2 hour or more trip by water, but only a 15-20 minute flight.

Barely, in the background, you can see three other Islands. On the left is Newcastle Island, on the right is Protection Island. Faded in behind those two lies Gabriola Island.

Photobucket started a new upload system a few months back but they do give you the option of using the old way. There is a button for it there somewhere.Sorry I am not much help.
later.....I checked at on the home page under the 'browse' area, it says "Use our faster bulk uploader ? or "old uploader" try clicking on old uploader. Hope it helps.

Yesterday, hubby and I visited the oldest preserved plantation in the United States. Drayton Hall, constructed in 1738, is located in Charleston, South Carolina and encompasses 125 acres. A wedding reception was being held later which is why there are white umbrellas set up in front.

Great pictures, as usual, everyone.

Here's a tumbledown building we came across while out rambling earlier today. No 1 son informed me he'd like to buy a place like it and renovate, when he grows up. I like his style!

Clara Sue -- you are getting closer!! You should visit the Charleston Tea Plantation. It's an interesting operation even if it isn't harvesting time right now. I'm in competition with them with my two tea bushes (soon to be four)! *smile*

This little frog resides in my yard...

There's also a limit on Photobucket which is the only reason I can think of that will stop it working. There's a little meter somewhere you can click on 'my account' that tells you how much room you have left. I have all mine on Flickr but can't get the right size for here so add them on Photobucket as well when I use them.

Here's a place few people even in London will see, the inside of Boston Manor station in Brentford which is pretty much the middle of nowhere.
