I'll kick off this month with a photo of a 4-yard long blueberry tart, made for the village festival in St Nicolas des Biefs[i] in the region of the Massif Central[/i], France. (I didn't manage to photograph the 120 kilos of potatoes I helped to peel for the same festival):



The heads of the two people facing towards the lens have been altered to be certain they were unrecognisable. I hope this is acceptable?

Blueberry tart - yum!

I have worked in a restaurant peeling potatoes so I don't envy you that job!



I took this photo outside a country pub recently. The sign struck me as particularly funny since it was a pub. I know, I'm warped.

Blueberry tart sounds wonderful. I've never had one, but I'd sure like to try. Blueberry pie is my favorite so it can't be too different, right?

MG, I must be warped, too. That's hilarious!

I kept waiting for the train, but it didn't show up until after I left the tracks. This is outside of Lexington, Kentucky.

Mother Goose, that is so funny. Satguru, know the Runwell Road all too well, used to drive it most days when I was working. We're a couple of miles from Battlesbridge at Rawreth.

Great start to the month everyone. smile Love the lizard and meerkats and I'd like a slice of that tart! That looks like a nice place to stay, Howie. That pub sign made menlaugh as well. Congrats on the honour Satguru (from the previous month)!

Another bird for you, here's a wattlebird (a red wattlebird, to be exact). They are native to Australia and are quite common. This one flew away just as I took the shot.

Howie, how nice to know you have somewhere pleasant to stay when in London.
Dan , it may be a common bird but it looks classy to me.
Great start everyone.

Howie, you have just too many cars visiting your summer cottage. laugh

Great photos for the first of October everyone!

Sat, your field at Pratt's Bottom looks just like this field in Lexington, Kentucky.

They are the people invited for tea on the lawn, did all of your invitations get lost in the mail?

We went to a custom car show a little while ago - some people do some very odd things to their cars

There are so many views I see on Flickr which look similar to others here, but the trick is catching them like you did there. This is a private road in Kemsing with the North Downs behind.

We recently attended a medieval festival at Balingup (small country town about 250 km or 3 hour's drive south of where we live). It was great fun! Here is the aftermath of one of the re-enacted battles.

Isn't he/she gorgeous! Amazing colour.

I'm enjoying that quite a few October photos would fit in the themed thread this month too! http://www.funtrivia.com/forums/ubbthreads.php/topics/826363/This_month_s_Theme_is_Blue#Post826363

Nice photo, Spanishliz; I passed a sumach tree today and it had just turned, the autumn colour is just so pretty, and I said "I knew I should have brought the camera..." Luckily you snapped it for me.

Wow, now that's a blue frog!

The view from Aunt and Uncle's front yard in Idaho Falls, Idaho.
