They're all great photos! Welcome Mantequillo - great shot. I hope we can see more?

Yesterday I was in town and had half an hour to spare and found myself walking past a camera shop. My camera has been doing some weird things lately and is in need of an upgrade so i thought, with Christmas in mind, I would just pop my head in while I had some spare time.
You can see where this is going, huh?

So here is a photo with my new camera ( a sony cybershot ... this thing even has a GPS so I could go back to where I had taken a previous photo. I'll probably never use it but wow! lol)

I went for a riverside walk a few days ago, while my glasses were getting new lenses. I'm pretty blind without my glasses, so it was a silly idea to take photos, but I held the camera very close to my face so that I could see what I was doing, and I'm very happy with the photos I took! I will maybe post some more in the next few days.

It is Marmageddon in New Zealand, been no marmite production since the earthquakes and the supermarkets ran out months and months and months and months ago.

Howie, just give me the word and I'll send you a care package of Vegemite!

And now for something a little different... I was quite taken by this little water fountain. It is for ritual hand and mouth washing in preparation of entering the nearby temple. In this case, it was the Enryaku-ji Temple, on the mountainside above Otsu (near Kyoto), Japan.

What is this? Bad mouthing Vegemite? The nerve! wink I love the stuff! Have a nice layer of it on buttered toast is the best breakfast, and then for lunch you butter two slices of wholegrain, rye or wholemeal bread. Then on one of the slices flip it to the non-buttered side, spread Vegemite on it and then add cheese. Put the other slice of bread on top of this (buttered slice facing up) and chuck it on a toasted sandwich maker. Perfect.
Anyway, a photo:

Some more fungi.



Never tasted Vegemite, but can't stand Marmite.

I am not really in favour of bringing up old threads, it can be irritating and non productive, but this one is relevant I guess.

Ha! That was a lively discussion and one that can't be won, I'm afraid. grin

Jill, your new camera looks like it will work out great!

MikeMaster, I'm quite taken with that fountain as well!

Christinap, are any of the fungi in your garden edible? I find lots on my travels, but I'm scared to try any, even after I've done research on them to rule out sickness or death. I have a friend that's very knowledgeable and will go mushroom hunting and eats them without problem, but that's just something I'm afraid to do.

Anybody that knows me knows that sunsets are my favorite subjects. This was last night in Belgrade, Montana. It was so gorgeous, I wasn't the only one out taking photos. I saw a few people stop and whip out their cameras.

While on the subject of dragons and fountains - here's one I saw in Macau a couple of days ago. It constantly changes colour because of the coloured lights aimed on it.

Having survived yet another Canadian Thanksgiving, wild turkeys celebrate in a field near Sharbot Lake, Ontario, seemingingly unaware that Christmas is just around the corner.

ClaraSue, I don't know if any are edible or not. I have some on the front grass that look like regular mushrooms, and I've looked them up and think they would be OK but I don't want to take the risk so havn't tried them. I wish I did know as I'm sure just picked and cooked almost immediately they'd be much nicer than the supermarket ones.

Beautiful sunset, Clara. Also loving all the dragons/fountains (I like your panda as well, Christina!). Your description of the turkeys made me laugh, Mante! That's a really nice view, Satguru.

Here's a poor neglected boat I saw one my walk the other day.

Thanks Daniel. The panda is actually a set of three, adult and two babies.

Yesterday, I took a nice, peaceful walk near Billings, Montana. You can't see the water in this photo, but this path runs next to the Yellowstone River.

Thanks Daniel, I still need to figure out the focus on the new camera, I took two there for that reason and they both did the same thing.

This is just an ordinary view of a petrol station north of Bordon but nice light and colours.
