These sculptures are very popular with tourists - it's very hard to get a photo of them without a tourist in it! It's nice to see sculptures that actually look realistic rather than a hunk of junk which allegedly represents something.

These kangaroos are located in Perth (our capital city) outside the City of Perth offices (which you can't see in the photo) and the Supreme Court (which you can see way off in the background).

My latest hobby is chalk drawing .. as far as hobbies go it's a cheap one with a bucket of chalk from the cheapie shop being $3 laugh and for black I just use charcoal out of a firepit.
A friend recently found me these Crayola chalks .. more and brighter colours to play with .. and still cheap!

How strange - it was there before. Have replaced it now and hope it stays!

This is my garden nag. He waits for me to deliver his meals and lets me know in no uncertain terms when I'm late - ten inches of pure displeasure and a definite sniff, a bit like Carson in Downton Abbey. But he will now swoop down for food before I've even let go of the feeder and he seems to tell his more nervous mate that I'm not a threat because he chirps at her rather than warns. They're nesting in a neighbouring garden and I gather from the children in that house that there are babies already; I hope he'll bring the family round for tea when they're ready. smile Take a bow, Mr Blackbird:

What a character! My word, I know the type really well. First husband... very similar...

Here he is a few seconds later with a mouthful of morsels for his babies. At least I think they're for his babies, the look says "I hope you don't think this is all for me!"

A replica of the Eleanor, one of the ships involved in the Boston Tea Party in 1773, a protest of a tax imposed on the American colonies by the British government. It's part of a museum in Boston Harbor. Patrons can throw crates of tea over the side, which are then pulled back onboard for the next group of tourists to toss.

Seen from a hazy airplane window, some of the volcanic wasteland of northwestern Arizona.

That is impressive CmdrK, and very lucky there were no clouds or a wing in the way.
