Oh, thank you very much! grin It's a pleasure to post on this part of the forum, there's always a lot to see, and I love other people's view of their lives, surroundings, and animals.

This is one of the first photos I took with my Nikon and I still love the stillness of it. We were in France, very early in the morning, having just watched the duck hunters row out for their morning sport - or more accurately their morning harvest as the ducks on that lake were bred for the pot. And as the sun started to shine more brightly, I managed to get this shot. You have to look very carefully for the line between water and air but it is there. smile

Prego, glad you liked it. I didn't realise until later that those weren't deckchairs but boats - pedaloes I think. (Sounds Italian enough.) As it was the end of the season when I was there, they were all tied up for the winter. A shame really, it would have been fun to go messing about on one of those. smile

(Edited for typo, if you couldn't guess.)

I'm honored.
This is the aqueduct, "Les Arceaux", which leads into the city of Montpellier, France. I spent a year in Montpellier while I was in college, 30 or so years ago.

Thank so much Ren, thats a very kind thing to say. I love this photography board, such a friendly place. In the monthly threads anything can happen and I've really enjoyed travelling around the world via everyone's photos. And the 2-week themes give a great challenge, fun to join in and fun to watch. Thank you to everyone who shares their interesting photos, and to you for creating the perfect place and atmosphere for that to happen.

Speech over.



I snapped this "large daisy" at a garden centre, full diameter is only about the palm of your hand. I couldn't believe the contrast of colour (plays tricks on my eyes) and intricate centre (golden ratio).


I chose this photo for its subject rather than anything else. Cameras catch nature so you can keep a pretty thing forever & I often look at it and it always makes me smile. And that's why it's my favourite photo. Thanks for giving me the excuse to put it up.

Thank you though I am not sure if I deserve to be here as I have not posted many photos. Having said that, it is still an honour to have people enjoying the photos that I do take. I do not have a favourite photo as they are all special in different ways, either by capturing the beauty of nature or as memories of places I have been, sights I have seen and people I have met. However, I shall head out into the garden to show a lily that seems to appear each year despite my lack of gardening skills...

Ages ago at the beginning of Sept, there was a nomination for this Photography Champion who should have been on the Roll of Honour long before now. So I will make amends by awarding it now to....
Christinap!!
Lovely, lovely pictures of all sorts of stuff, but the garden pics stand out as so special. Well done and thanks so much for your super input.
Please post one of your favourites here .

Thank you for the nomination! I think I started posting photos here when we first started this thread years ago and I tried to be regular, however, a couple of years ago I got fed up with my slow internet signal and just gave up because it would take so long to download a photo. A couple of months ago, I came back and I'm so glad I did (I have better service now) because I am enjoying looking at all the photos once again. It surprised me to go back through Photobucket to select a photo and how many I had there. It was hard choosing just one favorite.

This was taken in Westcliffe, Colorado and I liked it so well that I had it blown up and now it hangs in my house with a few other of my black and white photos.
