Great to hear we're still linking up around the world. I wish I could be there to meet you both as well.

This is one of my many hundreds of views of Golders Green

A young crimson rosella (one of many spectacularly colored native parrots in this part of Oz) exploring our friend's yard in Gippsland (eastern Victoria) yesterday...



The day was overcast so I was taking photos with and without a flash. The flash created a curious 'white spot' effect in the eyes (similar to the red eye in humans), which wasn't a great look. Similarly, a flash and cats eyes gives them devilish, glowing green eyes. Having lots of fun learning how to photograph wildlife but I'm always very eager to hear tips from the wonderful contributors to this site that know a lot more about this than I do!

Lovely picture of Star. I also know how you must be feeling.

Great bird photo, Mike. Wonderful colours!

This is a view of City Hall in the distance, as seen through the flowers at a little roadside park not far from my home.

Now for something slightly different, I found myself attacking Trafalgar Square from a different direction in the late afternoon and here is the St-Martins-in-the-Field-Church though I cannot remember seeing a field....

Oh yes this is one of my favourite churches in London, Howie, and yes it once was in the fields-between London and Westminster. There are lots of great stories and a great history attached to it. For instance, the doors are never closed, and it was used to welcome all soldiers going to the 1st World War battle sites, so they could stop to pray on the way. It was once used as a library, and the first church service broadcast was from there. Its a lovely church and be happy if you ever go to a wedding there, it is such a treat.

I went to the south coast for the weekend but in Shoreham the River Adur separates the main part of the town from the sea.

Wow! Fantastic photo flopsy, and Ren, thanks for all that interesting information! I quite feel like researching St Martin's church more in depth now ...

Some years ago when I was working in London a friend of mine belonged to a Choral Society and they used to give performances in St Martin's In The Field and I went to several of them. They do quite a few free lunchtime concerts there as well ranging from solo piano recitals to jazz. It is beautiful inside, well worth a visit if anyone happens to be in London.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! We had our big family meal today, at my sister's house, as my niece and her young man were here from Toronto. This is dessert -

I'd like a piece of that, Liz! Also love the bird, boat and sunset.

You're probably sick of these by now, but here is my pelican friend again, this time with a nice sunset in the background.

Love your pelican Dan - and he is so co-operative in posing for you as well, are you sneaking him food to make him stand still?

What a beautiful bird, MikeMaster! I'd love to be able to see something like that in the wild.
Flopsy, that boat picture is so serene, I really like that.
Daaanieeel, your pelican does look like he's listening to you. laugh
Great photos everyone!

For some reason, I cannot get my photo uploaded. Will have to show it later.

I'm not sure what to call this one... "The Light Under the Railway Bridge" or "Sunset Over the Mobile Phone Mast" or "Tide Goes Out Under Pilings". wink

Hope you have had a great day, Flopsy! Sorry all who asked, but I've eaten the rest of the pie that I brought home with me. I still have some leftovers from the main course (shown here) though smile

oh yum! The main and desert both look great.
Makes me wish I'd gotten somethign better out for dinner. :p

I love a pelican pic - he's gorgeous Daniel!

So sorry to hear about Star, Christinap. She is a beauty.

I think everyone has seen this sign before but this one is at sunrise hence it's backwards... (I wanted to flip it but can't find that option confused)

The London Coliseum in St Martins Lane, London's largest theatre (I think) and home of the English National Opera.

In response to the post in the blue thread I went into the garden to look at my flars and looked at both a pink one and a white one and both had dark blue middles, this one had the added bonus of a visitor.

Wow, some great photos! Sue, that's the flower! I just love those.

For some reason, I couldn't get my photos uploaded at all yesterday; finally had success this morning. Sunday we were in Longview, Washington and I saw this lumber plant. Stacks and stacks of logs almost as far as you could see.
