I met some horses today in Mill Hill. They all came when I called them.

Monument Valley is on the Navajo reservation. It has been the background of many Western films over the years.

This is Fort Charles, a ruin sited just half a mile or so to the south of the town of Salcombe on the Kingsbridge Estuary in Devon.

This fort was one of the many built along the south coast of England by King Henry VIII to protect the most important ports from raids by the French and the Spanish. It was the last of the forts occupied by royalist forces to surrender towards the end of the English Civil War. A particular royalist stronghold, it was ruined on the orders of parliament as they deemed it too dangerous to remain in a usable condition.

Fort Charles is a Grade II listed building and is a scheduled ancient monument.

A field in Mill Hill, only about eight miles from central London.

We were walking to breakfast at Lake Powell, when we saw this bird in the trees. When my wife asked me if I knew what kind of bird it was, I jokingly said "It's a yellow headed blackbird" - just stating the obvious. Turns out that's the bird's real name...

Another country view in Mill Hill. I can actually see near here from my house as it's pretty high up.

It's a bit ropy but still legible. I thought stick on letters arrived in the 50s but the style on this is a decade or two older, and then someone painted over it and shows the original lettering under where it is wearing off.

Golders Green Station, my transport and social centre from the late 60s onwards, we now have a group for everyone who met there in the 70s, originally after school and then whenever they were around as friends would turn up all day long to meet up.

An antique cash register which was in a trading post in Arizona.
I was more interested in it because I have used its successor, NCR computers, at work before.
