No, this isn't pepper in the sky, but it sure looks like it could be. One Saturday morning a couple of weeks ago, there were so many birds that they could have made a serious sized black cloud.

Please feel free to place a different photo here

The platform is over a gorge thats 1,000 foot drop, the way the people are looking are towards some falls, the platform is to view them. My mate bet me £10 i would not walk out there without holding on to the rail, easiest £10 i have ever earnt.

The platform is just wide enough for you to walk out on and turn and wlk off. Unless you are of a nervous dispostion

Love "The Birds" pic. There were a lot of migrating birds here a couple of weeks ago.

Bananas growing...

-Shelley, I love the pic of the 'poist' box and door.
-DG, that is such a sweet chapel. It looks like it would make a great 'playhouse'.
-Copago, Love the rainbow over the tank.

The 'Birds' picture is definitely 'Hitchcock-ish', and those bananas sure look good!
This is Canada House in Trafalgar Square, London. For a long time I thought it was the Canadian High Commission, but that's somewhere else.
It could have been a good subject for the flags theme, as the flags of all the Canadian provinces hang outside.



The flags you can see, from left - right are :- Northwest Territories, Alberta, Prince Edward Island, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Newfoundland, Yukon, Nunnavut.

This Green Woodpecker visited our garden today. It stayed for quite a while eating insects:

I hope this squeezes in under the Tellyline as there IS a guy asleep in it. It is backstage at the Chinese Opera theatre especially erected for the celebration. As you see there is a lot of action!

Please feel free to post a different photo here.
Velly solly Telly. Here are some more bits of costume for the Chinese Opera show.

Very nice woodpecker picture, tw. You either got very close or had a good zoom lens.
I like your city pictures, satguru. It is interesting to see the architecture and gardens of other countries.



Picture taken at sunset. The middle bush appears to be lighted.

Thanks Gary, I feel the same seeing it from all over the world here. I also like seeing my own area through different eyes on Flickr as it's all so familiar. I have regular messages from people abroad who used to live in the roads I've taken and were very pleased to be able to see them again. Some even ask me to go and take somewhere specific and I've also gone and made a number of videos using their directions. These new bits of technology (I go back to TV in black and white with two channels) make life a lot easier to negotiate.

It was a zoom lens. The camera was braced up against the door frame to steady it up. I thought the bird would fly away at the noise of the door opening but whatever it kept pecking at on the lawn must have been worth hanging around for. Some cropping of the photo was done in the editing program.

I've got a terrible craving for a banana split for some reason. Didn't know they grow upside-down, how neat bhs! 'Counting Crows', lol. wow dave; as someone mentioned, very a la hitchcock. That was the first tv show i ever saw on a colour tv. Nightmares.

Was just thrilled to see Canada House - wonderful piquero! TW - first time i have seen yellow on a woodpecker, what a fine species he is. Lovely garden satguru, vary varied .

Great pix all of you, kudos.

I missed getting Harvest Moon and Hunter Moon shots this year ... this from a previous October out of the living room window ...

Here's a rather nice block of flats with a garden in Golders Green. Having decent planting round flats makes all the difference rather than facing the street or just plain grass like concrete islands. That's why I like it so much round there as they have set an example how everyone else could do it but rarely do.

Running dog, a Weimarer, this one had a very deep colour. Slightly out of focus I'm afraid.

Thought you might be tired of Celebrations so here is the field near me planted with veg for Winter. In the West Country we call it 'hungry gap kale'.

Fresh, fluffy snow on the handrail of my deck an hour or so ago - I like it when it is pretty like this! It's when there's enough to need shovelling that I get tired of it.

Beautiful moon, shellie. That picture is worth framing.

I agree, satguru. A little garden makes every place seem nicer.



We went to Wisconsin Dells, WI on vacation this year. There were a lot of deer around. This one was just outside the entrance to the lodge where we stayed. I had to yell "hey" to get her to look up.

I've tried and tried to get a moon shot and my little camera just doesn't want to focus on it that well. Very nice, Shelley.

Storm clouds came in early this morning and gave the landscape a very strange light and coloring. Then a rainbow formed and I was outside in my houserobe with my hair still in a towel trying to get off a shot. This was the actual lighting.

Another straight road (in Willesden), quite long as well. Very few main roads are like this here but some Victorian housing developments were made on the grid system, but hardly any since. My own which was built in the 1930s is an exception but nothing like on the scale of this one.

Astounding photo ClaraSue! Ren, I love the costumes

Here's some more fluffy snow, outside my front door this time, earlier today.
