Cool insect! smile

Here's a true sign of the end of summer - preparations for the local "Fall Fair" (or to give it its grander title "Exhibition") which started this evening.

This is a mallee ring neck parrot that was playing in the weeds of our front lawn.

That's a Wolseley/Princess 1300, a lovely car but very prone to rust and not very reliable.

One of my all time favourite views, the churches at Hampstead Garden Suburb from the heath, the whole area and view were planned about 100 years ago.

Beautiful bird! Just wonderful smile

The rain, wind and fog rolled in over the fairground really quickly this afternoon. I was lucky enough to be near the corner store, and ducked in until the heavy rain passed.

I took the boy to a mini school earlier this week. It's when all the kids gather at another station and do activities for a few days - posssibly even more a social thing than educational! The kids love it and are exhausted by te end.

I went along to the fair today, and was nearly blown away!

These horses were competing to haul upwards of 7000 pounds on that sledge, over a set distance. Each team got two tries to make a "full pull". I'm pretty sure this was the winning team, but they were all marvellous creatures.

A bit further along the rose nursery is gradually being taken over by the park but I have no idea why.

Martin, I do believe that's an MG Sport Sedan of mid-60s vintage.

He's a classic British motorcar I came across at a vintage car show-off this past July 4 here in Northern California. A Rolls-Royce roadster from the early 1930s, but I haven't been able to pin down the exact model or year.

This is the hotel (Crowne Plaza) where we stayed in Alice Springs. It's a "green" hotel and it has the largest rooftop mounted solar array in the southern hemisphere. You can see some of their 1326 photovoltaic solar modules in this photo. They provide about 80% of the hotel's energy.

Yes, as you can imagine, I took hundreds of pictures of the Rock - this one is my favourite. I love the way the earth looks like it has varicose veins.

I couldn't agree more. I love the glimpses I get into other people's worlds. It has really made me more appreciative of my own environment, realising that what I consider mundane is interesting to other people. I look at my own little world in a different way now.

great photos! Been away a few days so is nice to see them. Especially those Ayers Rock ones - spectacular MG!!

A wonderful season of rain has left us with lots of wild flowers. No idea what they are but here is the first one.

The first flower's some sort of daisy, they're very popular here in gardens.

I think MotherGoose posted some Sturt Peas last month - well, here's some more. I've never seen so many of them as what are around at the moment. Not on our place but a friend tells me of a patch not too far away that have pink ones and white ones in it. Very rare.

This is the mighty Todd River. Alice Springs (named after Alice Todd) is built around the Todd River (named after her husband, Charles Todd). The riverbed is dry for about 95% of the year. It had rained a week or so before we arrived, hence the little bit of water present.

A typical London suburban bus view, although until 1965 Kingston was in Surrey before it expanded to include most of the suburbs around the edge.

Very odd, I hadn't seen the previous photo (this has happened a few times before) and what have I got today? The Brent Reservoir, five minutes from my house, another man made lake. What are the chances of that happening?

Thanks Dot, that's one reason why I live here.

Here's one of a pair of houses probably designed by Ernest Trobridge between the wars. He's done many near me and include castles and thatched cottages, all built around the same time.

This is one of the waterholes around the base of Ayer's Rock (Uluru). As you can see, The Rock is not always the bright red colour that you typically see in pictures. The rock is actually grey-black and the red colouration is a thin crust of iron oxidation. The rock can also acquire a silver colour due to deposition of minerals when it rains.

Another find from the attic. I remember my dad getting very excited about
seeing this on QVC & buying it. A favoUrite car of his, the Mercedes Benz
300SL. This model has great detail, even the steering wheel works!

I have been away for a week so take my son to a Scouts camp which was great fun. This was one of the inhabitants at the camp .. first time I've seen a koala in the wild.

This is the Wills Memorial Building in Bristol, part of the University of Bristol.
They've just finished restoring the building which is generally considered to be
the last great gothic building to be built in the UK.

Same building as in my previoUs photo, this one taken with a 2 second
exposure to capture the lights of the (invisible) passing traffic.



(Not too much camera shake which isn't bad without a tripod.) smile

I did look, honestly! I found this straight away as Martin had added to it but still didn't see October, but I've been like that all my life...
