Jakeroo, it's one of the beaches in the coastal city of Mangalore in South India. The fence separates the public part of the beach from the cargo port. My photo was actually taken on the port side.

I love the contrasting blue skies in Satguru's and ClaraSue's pictures.

Awww, Lady is precious, Gees!
And I love the palm trees, Zorba!
Those Asters look so much like daisies, my favorite flower. Beautiful flowers, CmdrK.

Does anyone else get tears in the eyes immediately on looking at a dear sweet face like Lady's?. I never get that happen when looking at people!

Misty is jealous of all the attention Lady (who is beautiful!) is getting.

Yes I do Ren. There is just so much love and devotion in those eyes, she is gorgeous.

I originally posted this here in April 2007 but thought it was "timely" to air it again in view of Howie's post.

This is an autographed replica of Sir George Frampton's statue of Peter Pan. It is located in Queens Gardens, Perth, Western Australia. This replica was presented to the children of Western Australia in 1927 by the Rotary Club of Perth. When I was a small child, my mother and I would catch the bus to the park and have a picnic lunch. I would climb the statue and feed the ducks and the carp (they won't let you do that now of course).

Oh, Misty is precious, too! And, yes Sara, I always tear up at photos of dogs.

This is Superstition Mountain, located east of Phoenix near Apache Junction.

If you stand in the field at the back of my garden this is the view over the fields to the parish church

We have had Lady for just over 10 years and the vet estimated she was about 6 months when we got her which makes her around 11

My new camera also works at night (I haven't tried moving objects yet but supposed to manage those as well), this is the first try, the M1 motorway in a tiny village called Flamstead near Redbourn.



I've got a nice view from here at the back (if you go upstairs, you can only see the house behind me otherwise) but always liked the idea of fields instead.

Geees63....awww! She's so sweet looking.
Christinap, you've got a great view from your garden.
Sat, I like night photos. I'm looking forward to seeing how your camera does do with moving objects.

Superstition Mountain looks like it's part of some sci-fi movie set. smile Nice night shot, Sat.

One more little doggie to join the party.

Fabulous little puppy zorba, and wonderful shot of Lady Gees, and how cute is Misty.
There is just something about dog photos.

Awww, cute puppy! You can just see how soft that fur is!

Ok, so in keeping with dogs....for those of you that don't know, THIS is the real ClaraSue. laugh She's a Shar-Pei mix that I found on the highway when she was about 8 weeks old. She's now 13 years old and the love of my life.

It's the first day of Autumn but still too early for the leaves to change color in this part of the state. But there's always some that give in to the inevitable early.

CmdrK, that is so lovely!
Loving all the dogs and not to be outdone, here is Gnawra whom I found in the village rubbish bin aged 10 days.

I've had a really pretty group of antirrinhums this year. I'm going to leave them in and see if they survive winter, they do sometimes if it isn't too harsh.

That's a lovely view Cmdrk.

Good night shot Satguru, look forward to the moving objects test photo. The camera seems to be doing everything you wanted so far, Yes, I like having fields rather than people round us. I think I'd find it quite hard to live in a highly populated area now.

Howie, good shot of Kensington Gardens. Very tranquil.

This is what I was doing at night in the middle of nowhere. It was pitch dark and couldn't see anything but the camera points a red laser at the target and then can see the sign at least but nothing round it. The pole had been painted grey but almost worn off and there was another stripe and a bit under this but wasn't prepared to mess around to get it after driving 30 miles or so at midnight. There would or should have been a red triangle on top of it but there is no bracket with nothing screwed onto it which is the usual condition when one's come off.
