Hey what a good idea for a thread! Photos from towns with the same name all over the world. I wonder if that is possible. Hey, in the FT Photo forum, everything is possible...

The only other Kingsbury I know is near Birmingham and doing photo searches can be a pain when most of them are of their water park 120 miles from here especially as we have one as well right on my doorstep.
Here's another of the rows of houses on Roe Green Estate, I don't know if it's me or the camera can't cope properly with poor light.

Nothing says "Christmas is over" like the last of the festive meat removed from the freezer and diced up for the cats.

This is the Art Gallery in Perth, Western Australia. Painting the steps pink and yellow is a very recent thing and I have no idea why! I tried googling to find out, but was unsuccessful.

Unfortunately I don't have a photo of our Museum which is located across the street from the Art Gallery, however, the museum is in an old building and looks a little more like the one Reeshy posted. I will try to get a photo of it in the near future.

MotherGoose, it's very nice! I like the steps; it's something different. smile What does the writing on the steps say?

Even though the snow makes her feet cold, Precious keeps begging me to take her outside. Shortly after this she bolted up the steps and sat at the door making indignant yowing noises until I opened it.

Aw! What happened to her leg?

I was out at Adobe Mountain Wildlife Center today -- it's a rehab center for wildlife here in Phoenix (injured animals, rescued animals, etc). This is a skunk that lives there -- she's been de-scented wink

If you mean why is Precious holding her paw in such an appealing manner, it's just cold. She alternates holding them up, shaking them and telling me off smile

Love your wildlife pics, PDAZ, and MotherGoose those earrings are lovely!

Lucy had the same white front and paws as Precious, it's probably a common tabby gene as I've noticed many others.
Here's the whole garden and house from the flowerbed last week.

There are wooden bollards on all corners of an intersection I sometimes pass through. Each is decorated to represent a member of the local community. I loved this one. Neatly painted on the back was the lady's name and the title, "Foster Mother."

Auntie1, that's a lovely idea! smile


Here's a record breaker! laugh It's the tallest cinema in the world, located in Glasgow, Scotland. I saw Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 in here, and the cinema rooms themselves are also HUGE! There are escalators because they have so many floors, haha! smile Generally just a pretty cool cinema. smile

My daughter does belly-dancing and, as with most forms of dancing, requires elaborate costumes. Here is one of her recent costumes in the construction stage. She finished it before Christmas and I am still vacuuming up those little golden seed beads which have managed to find their way into every corner of the house!

Here's another of the street bollards near my home. This one bears the name of a boy and "Newport Baseball Club."
I love the scruffy little grey terrier at his left side.

Those are such fun Auntie. Are they only at that intersection, or in other parts of town?

Hi. I'm just giving a heads-up to people who are posting from Photobucket using the IMG code. It resizes fine for horizontal pictures, but for vertical pictures, the height dimension comes out too long. I was alerted to this for one of my pictures, but realized it's only happening to the vertical ones. I've seen a couple other vertical ones whose dimensions are also too long. Just to let people know smile If needed, there are online resizers where you can keep the original too, or you can resize your picture on Photobucket itself, but this is permanent.

This is round the corner from my flat in Glasgow. I took it quickly on the way into class this morning.
