This used to be the Finchley Benefits Office where everyone not earning money went every two weeks in my area to sign on, it's empty now.

Took me forever to figure out what kind of bird this was. Landed in my neighbor's yard. Thought it was an owl but it's a chicken hawk. That's what I get for thinking! Haha... tongue

I'm going to do something with this photo and some different filter effects, make a collage out of them.



Not too bad for a cheap phone camera.

My friend's antique store, where I spend too much money and where I'm selling prints of my photos. It's in an old building which used to be the printing press for our local newspaper.

This is supposed to be protected marsh land in a state park. But it's so flooded that you can't see the muck and mire that it usually is.

There's some ducks out there somewhere in the photo too.

I wasn't trying for that halo effect around the Sun. It's one of those happy accidents. laugh

Yes, army tracks, straighter than most here. These are the woods next to it.

You're right if a Cromwell IV is almost or exactly the same as I checked. I can do that with many old cars. Desert Rats

There's a patch between the A38 and the River Severn in Gloucestershire which is virtually cut off and as a result kept all its old direction signs. I didn't plan to go that far but managed it, and although I knew there were around eight (nine at least now I've checked) got six of them just by covering as much of the few villages I knew they were in as I went. I may go back for the other three eventually. Most have just been repainted as they are designed for.

These were usually used for major destinations beyond the local.

This is a hair saloon now but it used to be the police station and originally it was the train station.

Did a filter on this that I wanted to tone the harshness of the image down so it looks like the photo was taken decades ago.

This may be the only pre-1964 level crossing sign left in the world still on a public road, although there is a bus stop on top instead of its red triangle. It's in the garden of the station cottage but still applies to an active level crossing even if the residents put it there themselves.

Beaver Dam State Park which was known as "beaver dam" since the time of the local Native Americans. People have found all kinds of arrow heads and other artifacts out there.

This is the result of having to stay inside until further notice. Too much free time and too active of an imagination. laugh

Grain elevator next to my house. Did this in color too but the B&W looks like something out of the 1930s.
