WOWzah, all the photos have been great. I would post about EVERY one of them, but the message would be too long lol.
But Trev, your "waiting for the heron" pic inspires me to do a watercolour painting.
And BHS, you have no idea how the members of my calligraphy guild would go ga-ga over that door in Fez.
SOTHC, your goldfinches are SOoooooooooo different from ours!
Cool goanna pix too Copago!
I'm out of "town" until after the 20th, hopefully I can take something of interest between now and then.

Psst to the moderators: could we "unpin/unsticky" the September/October photos and "my favourite town"?

This can only appeal to someone who passes this spot regularly, a little slice of my world I've passed all my life. The Brent Bridge junction on the North Circular in Golders Green. The new 600 series of buses are the normal buses with a 6 instead at the beginning to be added for school journeys.

Thanks Auntie, a sword rising out of the lake would have been perfect but it may have left me slightly spooked, or served me right for wandering around a wood at dusk :-)

Good luck with the painting Jakeroo, I'd love to see a photo, when you're finished, in a future thread :-



I mentioned in last months thread a competition in The Times to photograph a great British building. This was the photo I entered, the Palace of Westminster clock tower or Big Ben as most people seem to now call it.
The winning photographs are published in the paper tomorrow and I'm interested to see the photos that won so I can gain some inspiration of how to take pictures of landmarks and buildings, which I struggled with when I tried to take a photo for this competition.

Hendon Way Cricklewood, you wouldn't believe it was only 3.30pm when it was taken.

Wow...that's 3:30pm? It is 6pm here and dark already.



The roadway just past the church that is on this road is closed for construction (you can tell by the sign behind it), and unless you are going to that church, you are not supposed to cross.

Nothing new for today, but this is the Heron picture from a couple of days ago.

Berni, to be fair I took one a minute earlier and it wasn't half as bad. My camera cuts out in low light but as the effect was good decided to keep it as it was. It was like that by 4pm though, as they put the clocks back or it would be 5 like you.

A typical local scene in Kingsbury

This pigeon spent about five minutes trying to work out how to get onto the bird table, he made it in the end.

Continuing on The Grampians Wildflower walk.....
Pultenea, one of the many native plants which bears a pea-shaped flower.
The dispay was excellent this year, the hillsides were awash with colour.

I checked out the city's annual Festival of the Trees this afternoon. This year it's in a large tent set up in the Market Square. (Sorry it's a bit fuzzy...)

Shopping most of today, but did sneak a quick photo of The Lightbox gallery and museum in Woking.

As far as I know this is the only car designed around the 21st century outside Japan to have a classic grille. It's a Lancia Lybra and probably one of less than ten registered in Britain. I would have thought if they are managing to sell them it wouldn't hurt a few more firms to offer a similar choice of styles as well.

I can't show pictures of my 3-year-old grandson's first cooking lesson.
But I'm happy to display the result!

Auntie, that's making me feel hungry. I hope your Grandson enjoyed his lesson :-)




Cold and windy today, but at least the rain held off.

Trev, we both enjoyed it hugely. His little apron has "STIRRER" on it, so he stirred the cold ingredients. The boiling took place when he was out of harm's way.
