Random art on derelict building. Definitely an improvement on the bare boarded up windows!

One of my favourite London suburbs on the border of Kent. Bromley is ahead, I was in Beckhenham and West Wickham is to the right. I didn't plan it for that but discovered when I looked on the map later.

Was so happy to get this picture this morning Everything is so clear even down to his eye.
Every morning when I feed my dog there are a few magpies hanging around to finish off what he misses. Lately he's been getting fresh meat so the magpies are missing out. I've been putting a handful of dog nuts on the edge of the trailer for them to come and eat.

What a lovely home away from home, lady. Zorba, love those colours. Great capture, Copago.

Holy Batman, aliens have landed!

I found this bizarre looking creature in my garden this morning. I checked the web (no pub intended), it looks very close to the horned spider found in Thailand and Burma. If so, it's a long way from home!

A week or so ago, I asked if the Photo-A-Day submissions had to be photos taken in the current month, and was told no, that wasn't necessary. In commemoration of that, I hereby present this shot of the Golden Gate Bridge's north tower that I took today.

Though I've never lived in San Francisco, I've seen the bridge and been over it countless times, but apparently never at this time in the morning, as this is the first time I recall ever seeing the tower casting a shadow like that on the Marin Headlands.

Copago, I thought so too! I'd never had much of an interest in bugs until I moved here. They are so bizarre and so colourful!

Bugs here are the camouflage kind of things I guess - I can't think of any that have any colour more exciting than brown (unless you count the red backs of a certain spider which are hard to see .. just ask Ozzz). We have one insect that looks like a little bunch of sticks. Nothing quite so beautiful as yours!

In keeping with the bug theme, here's a praying mantis I found last year just after sprinkling the potted succulent it had apparently been lurking in. As I recall, it was about four inches (10 cm) long.

Here's a scene close to my heart. Finchley Road runs from Lords cricket ground in St Johns Wood to Henlys Corner in Finchley, and links half of my life. I worked on it in this shopping centre twice, and in Swiss Cottage further south twice. One of my best friends lived right opposite one of the various tube stations on it, and I took the bus to school which stopped there every day for about 7 years.
This is the 82 bus from Finchley to Victoria stopping in Temple Fortune where I was doing my shopping this afternoon.



Has anyone else had the nice surprise I had recently on photobucket? Although my photos are all there they reduced my used space by over 50%, meaning I can add many more photos before it's filled up. If anyone knows how they managed it and if it happened to them I'd be interested to know.

Cool shot, Paul!

This leafhopper was 1/8" long and appeared grey to the naked eye. It wasn't until I looked at him on the computer that I saw these smart black and white stripes.

Two boats in a lock at the same time. We were at the back.

I've always wanted to go on a canal like that. Seems so idyllic.



Presenting .... The Amazing Flying Goat!
This is Hindu's kid, no real name but we're calling her Kidley.

I have no idea how you manage to capture that moment Jill!

In 1976 they built Britain's first shopping mall on the site of a greyhound track and sewage farm in Hendon, and as a result the buses all extended their routes from terminating in Golders Green. This is where they drop people off and many terminate besides the routes which passed it already in 1976.

Oooo, good timing, Copago! Maybe Kidley has aspirations of becoming one of Santa's reindeer...

Recently I did some painting, and had gone outside to check to see if the paint was dry. Apparently it was, as this colourful insect was walking about quite freely. The bar is one inch wide, to give some perspective.
