Foggy day in old London town. Except this isn't London. This was the golf course located in South Dakota this morning. Surprisingly, I was the only one playing. wink

Yet another of my many views from the old railway from Alexandra Palace to Finsbury Park which closed in the 50s, this is a junction in Crouch End

I ordered some plants from Jersey that came as small plug plants. "Buy 40, get 20 free!" - they sent me 72. And as a thank you for my order they sent me a 'mystery plant' which turned out to be 72 of something else. So I have potted on 140 small plug plants today and my back hates me.

It's a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with a 70-300mm zoom lens Jake. I had to crop the photo & resize it but I'm quite pleased with the results.
Now I have a some good settings (thanks to my research on the interweb), I hope to take more photos with different stages of the moon whenever there's a clear night.

You should indeed be very pleased. Thanks for the info.

I, in the meanwhile, will be begging the hubbs for a new camera LOL!

More boats here too. The bulk carrier "African Harrier" being passed by a local fishing boat "Pioneer" at the Port of Timaru.

The corner shop at the edge of Bridge Lane and Finchley Road, Temple Fortune. I worked just along the road from 1992-7 as well.

Today we look inside the Limburg Cathedral in Germany. Here we have the Romanesque baptismal font from around 1230.

Not the clearest or bestest photo I ever did take but it's the most
appropriate one I could think of.

This is a Fuschia outside our dining room window, with spider webs glistening with dew on the box hedge.

Perfect lighting in both Satguru's temple pic and Santana's boat picture!!


Quite the fuschia Mugaboo. Is it really all one plant? Or several plantings? Just asking, because we just generally grow one (stuffed with other things) in hanging baskets here and wouldn't survive a winter.

I love how the spider webs look like little tiny hammocks (probably influenced by reading too many fantasy books lol).

Howie! Dude! Send some pics to a photography contest already! (you never know til you try).

I've entered into two. Hence I've had to remove all links to any of the photo threads here (and not likely to post in the future, but I continue to enjoy all the wonderful submissions).

There are several posters here who could either win awards or publish photo books (ummmm for PROFIT). Some people just have the "eye", regardless of their camera's limitations. Keep snappin' foks : ))

(edited because I typed could twice lol)

Here's a photo that won't win any competitions, but will strike a chord with some of our members. Imagine my delighted surprise to find these on sale in one of our local supermarkets last week:



Being deprived of (P-P-P Pick up a) Penguin bars for the last few years this is a pretty tasty close equivalent. I didn't even look at the price just lobbed a packet into my basket as quick as possible grin

I have wondered what it would be like to enter a photography contest but never done anything about it, I am my own worst critic. Yes, my camera is definitely not the best camera around...lol

But the important question is - do you know how to do the Tim Tam Slam?

I was lucky with the church, the sun and light was just right for a change, the following day it looked like everything had been taken at dusk and it was nothing like it. One example is here, a little part of old England west of Hertford.

Jakeroo: When my mother came up here after she was married in 1954, her father cut the box hedge down to about six inches, and she thought that after it had regrown, there would not be able to see the lily-of-the-valley that was growing there before. She then planted those three Fuschia plants as she wanted something that was low maintenance.

Great photos everyone.
had tgo go away for a few days for a school thing for the boy so did a shop as well .. sadly I didn't get any tim tams because now, after seeing that photo I want some and there aren't any for hundreds of kilometres. Bugrit.

My work boots are nearly dead so I went to dig out an older pair to get me though. I won't be touching them until the other half has been right through them ... shudder.
