zorba, if I didn't know otherwise I'd think your shot could be the A40 at Northolt. It certainly didn't look like what I thought India looked like.
Sara, I didn't realise you lived round Twickenham as well, you've really lived all over Britain. My father lives by Teddington Lock so know the area very well.

This is another bridge from a railway in Highgate that closed in the 50s and is now the Parkland Walk.

Satguru, I'm actually in Toronto right now on holiday. That's the view from my window but I'm not sure of the exact location.

The wide expanse of beach when the tide's out at Portmeirion. For those who can recall 'The Prisoner' TV series, this is where the Rover Ball patrolled, and foiled any attempt to escape from the village.

I always wondered why there were no other places that built the same type of houses as where I used to live in Hampstead Garden Suburb, then with the benefit of Streetview I found they did, in an identical but much smaller copy in Ealing, Brentham Garden Suburb, probably the best kept secret in London.

Thanks to everyone for the compliments and for the other great photos. I've always wanted to see the world


Quote:

I've been to NYC only once, and never to Central Park. Never would have guessed that was NYC!





I know! As I took that picture of the bird on "The Pond," on the South East corner of the park, not 50 feet behind me (under a berm) runs a subway tunnel and, above it, all the traffic on Central Park South. It's amazing to me how well it was designed to make you forget you're in the city.

There's lots of pretty places in NYC, especially in Central Park. Here's another pic of the park from last spring - this one is about a third way up the park on a large water feature called "The Lake" (they weren't very imaginative about names ). This one is big enough to boat on and is lovely to walk around.





The Gondola is for tourists

Great photos everyone, especially that sunrise! The photos of Central Park make me think that I might actually like to visit New York one day - I usually don't like cities much.

My flowers are finally starting to bloom! Took this just about an hour ago.

That makes a lot of sense now. I haven't been to India as I said but that looks far more like here than there and Canada does as well from what I've seen of Argus99 and Spanishliz's views, although I have also been there myself for an afternoon (the standard tour of Niagara Falls) from the US side. I'm glad I can spot places with no actual written clues!
I'll add a photo of the A40 at Northolt tomorrow although you can't see the buildings along the side in my view from the bridge.

Great photos, everybody! I'm sorry I haven't even been in to see and had quite a few to catch up with. I just love everybody's contributions. I have especially enjoyed the flowers and sunsets and sunrises! Lovely!

Here's tonights full moon rise over the desert.

Beautiful moon, CS!

Here's a mob of feral goats at a ground tank.

As promised here's the A40 at Northolt, you can't stop on the side to get your view and the railings are in the way as I couldn't get out of the car either when it was stopped at the lights here. But the little hills on the right are a local feature (no idea why) for people to climb on and they would have exactly the right view if I ever get round to going there.

Copago, everytime you post pix of feral goats it amazes me. The most feral thing we ever see is cats.

Ren- someone needs to feed that baby more shrimp so it'll pink up faster!

Beautiful night shot Picqero.

Here is something for everyone's Mother's Day Bouquet. Here's wishing everyone a great day.

Hi! I'm Mommakat and I'm new, but have been enjoying this forum since joining a month or so ago.

This is my cat Samantha whom we rescued after being hit by a car in front of our home. The owner was informed where she was but did not come to claim her so we gave her a home. She is pure-bred Bengalese.

ClareSue, I enjoyed your picture of the full moon rise over the desert. It brought back memories of my trip to USA several years ago.

What a pretty little cat, Mommakat! I can't imagine anyone not wanting her, but she's a lucky kitty to find someone who does! I have 3 myself.

And Welcome!

Welcome Mommkat. Wonderful thing rescuing Samantha. And a beauty, too. Bengalese cats are so gorgeous. Well, definately someone else's loss was your gain. Look forward to many more Samantha portraits!
