We had house geckos in our flat in Singapore - they were quite nice to have around but they would insist on leaving their calling cards behind the sofa. It was one of the main things that made me want to have an amah!

Gees: be careful. Satguru is likely to want that sign! lol

Satguru: I think the Stokes pic is my favourite of yours so far. I'm always truly amazed that you are able to take so many pictures with absolutely no people in them! Honestly, until I viewed these boards, I didn't think there were any unoccupied spaces in England lol

Zorba: awwwwwwww on the cats. Adorable pic ("mom" is sooooo skinny though!)

Love the horses golfmom, please don't stop posting them.

Szabs: fabulous picture of the "do" (gorgeous horse too!). I have a grandniece who would LOVE to have me braid her hair like that! Will have to go to the dollar store and pick up about 30 mini hair-twisties lol

Here's a little break from Bailey, she'll be back tomorrow! Here is a set of jump standards that I repainted. They needed to be updated and fresh and I felt quite artistic as I painted. Please don't look too closely!

I'm loving all these pictures. I'm getting a new perspective on England, as I only know what I see on tv or the movies.

I think that's a family trait, Jake. You'd know if you saw me, mom or gran. wink

Love that rural scene, Sat. Especially the well (at least that's what I think it is).

A statue which represents a woman from Roman times going to market. This is in the centre of Wallsend at an open part of the high street



Why the local authority chose to surround the statue with a hedge I have no idea perhaps it is to discourage the chickens from making a bid for freedom

A quick journey back to New Zealand. Looking south from the pedestrian bridge across the rail tracks in Timaru, the railway station is a couple of buildings down on the right. However it is not used any more for passenger trains. The clay cliffs to the right contain air raid shelters from World War II.

That's a gate... a lychgate - a gate covered with a roof. They're quite common in England, especially in rural churches.

Here's another picture of England with no people. smile I actually thought it would be bustling, as I went to the canal on a sunny Bank Holiday, when the crowds are out and about, when the canal boat holiday season has just begun, and English people love to go messing about on the water... but they clearly went somewhere else!



This is the start of the Northampton Arm - 17 locks in a four mile stretch, linking the Grand Union Canal to the River Nene, thus creating a route from the canals in the Midlands to the North Sea.

Thanks everyone, I tend to spot nice views automatically and now I can carry a digital camera around wherever I go have created a vast collection. This is the path along the Hogsmill river in Malden, I have so many almost identical ones around London but each one is a different place although it would be pretty hard to tell which was which.

What a lot of sheep!!!

I took a half-day from work today and brought my youngster to the local zoo. The giraffes, as always, were a big hit:

Back to the nest at the end of the day



If it had been after shearing the sheep could have been giving you the cold shoulder

This old truck, on display in the Distillery District of Toronto, gives new meaning to the phrase "rust bucket", methinks.

Lovely colours Gees, I've never seen a violet sunset before.

This is a rather unusual concrete bridge carrying the trains to Malden Manor up the line.

The violet sunset was a surprise to me I thought I was taking dark red clouds in an almost dark sky , the lightness of the sky and reflection were unexpected,I am not sure if it is the camera or the low light conditions which are the main reason. I just put it down to a happy accident.



A picture of Lady this afternoon in the garden at the time around which she normally gets fed concentrating on watching my wife to see if she is going for the food

We have a similar truck in a similar state rusting away here smile

Here's a newer truck taking away our first load of wool for shearing. Always good to see it go. smile

One of my occasional photos of my mum's garden, the gardener had just been so all newly shaped.

Auntie that is definitely a cat not to be trifled with - great picture

Lady is focused on the kitchen window looking for any sign of her food being set out in her bowl

Sometimes when a wave of nostalgia hits and memories of developing and printing and darkrooms overcome me the only cure is a black and white picture
