For today, here's a picture of the monument to the departed at the labour camp of Struthof-Natzweiler. This is the only concentration camp established by the Nazis on present-day French territory.



I do have better photographs, but thery'e not yet uploaded to my PC. Will have to get around to that over the next few days.

Susie consented to leave her much loved and somewhat battered tennis ball alone long enough to have her photo taken

As a sort of follow on from Santana2002's photo, this building is the Jewish museum in Berlin.
A very interesting building, inside and out.

Nice well!

Precious has protested at all the holiday pics I've been posting, so here is one of her soon after coming home from her holiday, enjoying nibbling on some grass.

As a teen I used to go to Fenway a couple of times a week in the summer. Early sixties -ads in the park were prohibited (not like now as you can see, it's all commercials). Half dollar for the 'T' to get there and back. A buck to get into the bleachers (that area across the field to the right). A quarter for an ice cream sandwich, ahhh! Notice the area with seats and no sitters? That's called the Batter's eye. People in that area were distracting to batters. In an effort to save them from being hit by the pitched ball (which was coming out of a multicolored crowd in those bleachers) Major League Baseball ordered that that area in all ball parks be blanked out (in about 1975) I loved those seats. You could look straight in at the catcher and see what pitch he was calling for by the signals flashed by his number of fingers between his crouched legs. In those seats you could also go to the back wall which you can see has louvers in them to allow air to enter the park but we could look out to see how far Boog Powell's home runs went when the Orioles were in town.
Thanks for being a great audience Copago.
Nice dog. Here's a shot of my great neighbor Adele's rescued dog, Prudence. I am using this image to show what 20 megapixels can do. Tomorrow I'll show a zoomed in image of her head. She is lying on 15x15 inch pavers I made a decade ago. Why home-made 15 sq pavers? We needed to cover 75 inches and no commercially available pavers multiplied to that distance. The pavers I see are in need of a new coat of stain. I stray. Prudence doesn't:


Edit: I was posting based on seeing only the 1st page here. I didn't mean to not comment on these pg2 Pix. They're all nice (except for the cat photo - dislike cats - but the photo's marvelous.

My daughter visited that museum, martin_cube, and was very impressed with it! She didn't take a photo of it so it's nice to see it through your picture!

Prudence looks lovely, mehaul!

Great angle of Precious, Liz. & love your well Howie!

In the original image of Prudence it was difficult to discern one end from the other. She has such a cute face and I wanted to show it better. I called up the file internally in the camera and zoomed to 1/10th centered on her head. This created a file of about 700 Kb out of the original 7 Mb. There is still a lot of definition to be seen. I then saved the zoomed section as a new photo file internal to the camera. Tomorrow I will do a further zoom in on the zoom (I feel like I'm chronicling "The Fantastic Voyage". Prudence's face:

Adorable though Prudence is, I am sorry mehaul but we only allow one a day in the Photo a day thread and you have posted two. If you can post a link to the second pic that would be fine.I realise they are both the same shot, but we still do not permit 2 photos a day Thanks

Before, under the discussion about what a week was and what a day was, it was stated that weeks are from Sunday to Saturday allowing Friday to Monday postings. For the one a day, I read my postings of Prudence being first on 3 August and the second as being posted on 4 August. Those are two different days. Is the rule then '24 hours between postings minimum' and not 'one a day'? I do not plan to post another image today so why not let this slide and state the rule more clearly.

Edit to state: I removed the offending image and will post it tomorrow. I admit I desired to rush my second posting and for that I apologize, Ren.

Thanks, everyone. I didn't know much about the place either before the trip but it was great to have a chance to visit.

Prudence is beautiful! Howie, if you hadn't mentioned that pic was taken in Germany, I would've thought it was Bhutan or some other part of Asia. Very striking photo, Santana.

One of my favourite views of Suburban London (technically just on the right where it goes up a hill), as I remember it looking in the 60s before places were knocked down or fell apart, and is less than a mile from the open fields and farms which continue to the coast between the towns and villages in Kent. This is West Wickham, just east of the main centre where it starts becoming more countrified.

Here's Chip, looking a little nervous, backing his first sheep. He'll get the hang of it!

Well if 'Babe' can do it so can Chip I am sure. Oh God I could eat him!

Hi Jakeroo, yep, Chip is a Kelpie ... actually both the parents are black so we were surprised to see him turn out brown.

Prudence is lovely, Mehaul. Howie - your view is just idyllic!

I can imagine Liz, and probably the other Canadians, laughing at me for this but we don't see it very often! Ice on a sheep trough.

You may or may not remember the 'Watch for Trains' sign at the Otipua Wetlands, I can confirm there were no trains approaching from the south but who knows what was behind me.....did I survive?

I tried zooming on the zoomed image but the camera won't allow saving zooms on zoom. I can look at zoomed zooms (anyone want to buy a car? zoom, zoom) but I can't save them for transfer. I did note however that the 1/10th zoom to show Prudence's head isn't as zoomed as the camera goes. It will zoom to arouind 1/100th of the original image. I got down by 1/10th more than her head shot, but that cut out too much of her face. Here she is at about 1/60th zoom on the original photo. You can make out the scribing on her tag! Next I think I'll try to go even closer using the usoft Paint copy, paste and enlarging ability to get at the limits of 20 Mp and see what definition is left.
Oh yes, lovely images everyone. sorry to be slow on the politeness.
Note that now the sparkles in Prudence's eyes is visible. A wet nose means a healthy dog, right?:

The jpeg file size at this zoomed state is 280 Kb.
