I can do my best with many views of London if required.
This is the Thames at Strand on the Green in Chiswick.

One of the many posh car show rooms i passed by during my London Visit.

The other window even had a Aston Martin peddle Car in it for sale at a mere £4k

Thanks Professer. Here's a typical example of the old road signs I collect, complete with stripy pole, which were abolished in 1964.

I spent last weekend with my parents in Colorado. Dad and I took a jeep ride up into the mountains next to their home. This is the start of the ride before we started climbing. Note the 'smooth' road.

Recently spent part of a brief vacation in search of the wild mustangs in Moffat County, Colorado. This little filly was quite full of herself and stole my heart.

The statue's in South Kensington but not sure who it is either. Should be easier now I've located it.

This is a typical (large version) house in Golders Green. When I make my first million I may buy one...

Was surprised to see how busy this show was when in London although i never went myself it was packed everyday. May been with Michael Jackson fans who came to London despite his death and cancelation of hios O2 shows.

We'll be in Nevada on Monday, Tredici, I hope to see some wild mustangs again. Lovely filly!

On my trip in the mountains with dad, this little fellow came out to check out the jeep stopped by his home.

Unfortunately there was very little activity at Elstree Aerodrome today (it's often constant) so here are the planes resting. It's not icy yet but two are even wearing a coat.

Seeing the photo of the Aston Martin showroom reminded me of the one I took in Berlin of the Ferrari showroom on Unter Den Linden.

This guy was on the wall by the door - he's HUGE. Does anyone know what kind of spider he is? The siding on the house is (I think) 7" or 8". I wasn't brave enough to go out with a ruler and get any closer than I did with the camera.




edited to add

I found out it's a Writing Spider.

Aww Copago, spiders are ok. They eat flies which walk all over .. well, you know, then walk on our food. Spiders are our friends.

SilverMoonsong, in that case your spider is related to this benign beauty which hung around for three or four months near my front porch this summer, before a bird got her. :/

She's a Nephila Golden Orb spider, named Golden for the colour of the anchor threads they weave, varying the colour according to the intensity of light and the colour of the background, and is specifically adapted to insect vision; which I thought was rather clever. More information here



She tolerated me spritzing water on her web from time to time for water-beaded web shots, and because she didn't jump, I felt comfortable getting quite close to her. This was shot from about 3" away.

edited to add: This is her underbelly, and she's hanging head down.

Tredici, "your" filly is beautiful, and her coloring fits perfectly with her surroundings.

Copago, I hope you write a book someday... what are the chances of you and Conor teaming up to make a photo-story of your adventures?

And, how appropriate is it that SilverMoonsong was visited by a writing spider?

Went to the movies tonight and saw La Strada. Kind of strange to adapt to the idea of seeing a digital "film" like that one in a theater, but at least it's easier to read subtitles when they aren't on a faded old print.

This theater opened in 1928, but by the early 70s the competing theaters out by the malls - with two or sometimes three screens (they weren't called "multiplexes" yet) had taken away its business, and the Ambler Theater might have been a goner if Harry Bristow, a Philly area preacher, hadn't bought it as a place to show Christian films. Every Friday night there was a free movie, followed by Harry preaching and exhorting people to come up to the front if the movie helped the spirit stir within. He'd scold those who tried to leave between the movie and the preaching. Vans and buses of people would come from churches all around Philadelphia, but by the early 90s, crowds dwindled. Dr. Bristow and his son Gary kept the place going long enough, and maintained it sufficiently so that by the time Harry died, old theaters had come back into vogue. Eventually this theater landed in the hands of a non-profit film group that renovated it beautifully, and shows films that don't get to the multiplexes.
