Yeah, it sure does Copago. Interesting plant. And, the tree from yesterday -- a backward "C." It looks like someone cut the tree and then the tree decided it wanted to live. I can hear it now. "I Want To Live!"

This is the second of my (very) occasional series of photos: Hard Rock Cafés around the world. I'll leave you to guess where this one is...

These flowers caught my eye today in Kenton

Love the trees and flowers!

When I first saw these bunnies today, I thought they were lawn ornaments. Then they moved! There was another white one outside the fence as well.

Another member of the kindness and well being at the Rocky Mountain Raptor Center. This beautiful Redtail Hawk lost her ability to hunt due to brain and eye damage caused by West Nile virus. I knew horses could catch that disease but did not realize birds also suffer. She can no longer hunt, but when the wind blew she faced it and lifted her wings. Somewhere there must be a echoing memory..

Deb, that brought tears to my eyes, as most things do if they concern animals and their pain. She is so beautiful.

This is Croydon, Britain's answer to America, recently added with Canary Wharf but when I took this in the 90s was more or less unique. It was bombed during the war and rebuilt like this. There are a few isolated groups of modern blocks in places like Basingstoke but nothing like this. The best view's from the flyover but illegal to stop, I must try and find a way to do it.

Here's a building which is a little older, the Amphitheatre in Verona. I didn't venture inside, I suffer from Leophobia*.



(*That would be a fear of lions. Probably. )

Now that you mention it Copago, it does look like a centipede.

The Afghan Church at Navy Nagar built by the British to commemorate those who lost their lives in the First Afghan War in 1838.

Here is a picture of a dam across the Adige river in Italy. It's the second longest river in Italy & passes through Verona on it's way to the Adriatic sea. It's also connected via underground tunnels to Lake Garda to prevent flooding of valleys, towns & cities further downstream, a huge problem in the past. This dam is part of the flood control scheme.

I've never seen the Paper Mill glow red before! This normally white building looked like this for about two minutes as the sun disappeared from the horizon.

Another shot from Venice. A gondola full of Japanese tourists? How could I not take a photo & turn the tables on them? See how they like it.

Am enjoying the armchair trip through Italy, Martin.

This is the exterior of La Merced church in Nicaragua, an interior shot of which I posted in this week's theme thread. Although an imposing church, it is in need of cleaning and some repair. The dollar fee one pays to climb up to the bell tower to overlook the colonial city of Granada goes towards their restoration fund.

This is our Renault Dauphine outside our house in about 1964. In 1965 we moved, and in 1995 I returned to an almost identical house on the same estate.

Thank you, MadMags.

Banganga is an ancient water tank. According to legend, Hindu god Ram stopped there while searching for his wife and asked his brother for some water. Laxman shot an arrow and water sprang out of the spot it landed on. The water is considered to be a tributary of the Ganga which is actually miles away. Thus the name Banganga where Ban means arrow.

Another temple from the same complex

Tredici: another fabulous bird photo!

Martin: you're fueling my unrequieted wanderlust with all those wonderful pictures (sigh)

Mags: "haunting" subject. Reminds me of New Orleans cemeteries for some reason.

Satguru: lovely bouquets - I'd happily accept any one of them : )

Zorba: wow, realllly neat architecture photos (sighs wistfully). Am afraid "this" is likely to be the closest connection I'll ever have with anything remotely related to India LOL...



I like 3 pickled onions and 5 queen olives in my martooni's - that way I can call 'em "lunch" (gigggles)

Here's another one for you Jakeroo. I'm pleased my pictures are being so well received. It's nice to be able to share my holiday with others this way.

This is just one of the many many vineyards in the area I visited.

Lol at your lunch, Jakeroo. Martin, did you get a sample at each of the 'many many' vineyards you visited?

So... I paid my dollar towards the restoration fund for the Merced church, and up, up, up I went. A tight angle, and tiny steps made it quite the venture.

Thanks, Jakeroo. Martin, that's another beautiful picture. I love the 'blue' mountains. Mags, your photo makes me feel slightly dizzy. How did you manage to climb those narrow stairs?

A few washerwomen heading home at the end of the day.

It isn't even December yet, but many people have their Christmas decorations up already. This well-decorated yard isn't many streets away from mine.

India looks to be a colourful country, zorba. Love that pic.

How did I manage to climb those narrow stairs, you ask? Well, going up wasn't too bad, it's not too scary to have your heels hanging off the step, but coming down was a trip. My toes were hanging over this time, and I had to hold my camera on my shoulder or overhead, as it would bang in any other position. No way could I sling it on my front, as I needed to see my feet! I pity a man with large feet coming down.
