The size was OK (320 x 240 pixels), so you are getting it right. It was just looking wrong to yourself for some reason. Try putting the photo back again. Don't worry if it looks too big. I can always resize it if necessary.

Finally the sun has come out. Our Lilac in the backyard is in full bloom and is covered with bees and butterflies, especially these.




I check on the net and I think it's a Red Admiral, but correct me if I'm wrong.

My longest (albeit part time) job was 5 years in my friend's sports shop in Temple Fortune. If you look behind the front half of the van where it says BT that is the very place.



He is now in Florida, the shop was an internet cafe where I bought my earlier computer, and is now just a cafe. How things have changed, and not really for the better. They added parking meters as well which now cross the whole borough.

What a gorgeous cat, Jar. ...I will be along in a sec with todays item which involves the anklebiters in the class next door.
Ok. Here is the lean, mean, fighting machine from the Tai Kwando class next door to mine. They are noisy, but boy do they have fun!

Beautiful cat, Jar.

I presume that the headmistress who lies here in the churchyard at Pevensey in Sussex was a bird-lover, since she's had a birdbath erected on her grave.

This is an underwater rescue training class. It took place during the Citizens Fire Academy Advanced Class (of which I am a member). The local Fire Department has a water rescue and dive unit since there is a very large lake in this town.

Great Photos everyone, Ren those kids are too cute for words. My photo today is from my cruise around New Zealand this winter, it's in Milford Sound and the waterfalls were really rushing as it had rained heavily the night before.

Great pics everyone, especially love the birdbath on the grave .. I might steal that one day!

Here is the lad doing his tricks on the trampoline. I fully expect him to run away to the circus on day.

The Metoffice have been issuing extreme heat warnings for nearly a week here. (Ho ho Yit).
Gnawra could have told you that anyway.

A good one bhs63. I know it can be difficult to get that type of photo. Creatures just don't understand that they need to stay still until the shutter has operated. I like Argus's butterfly photo too.

Good trampoline action shot. Tell him his hair might stay spiky if he does that too often I bet flipping the photo upside down would make him laugh.

Daddy was supervising the flying lesson.

The baby fluttered down to the porch where I was sitting and perched on the next chair. Dad was there in an instant making a ton of racket so the baby would leave.

More great pics, everyone.

This gun-carriage is a modern replica, but the gun itself, at Pevensey Castle in Sussex, is one of those that saw off the Spanish Armada.

I just noticed the name of the dog. Gnawra! What's the surname? Not 'Bone' is it?

No she is Gnawra anything-that-gets-in-her-way, washing off the line, furniture, ornaments, anything she can chew and ruin. She is a monster!
Today, we have Hainan Island. If you look in an atlas you will find this minute paradise, not too far from here.
It is an old picture (sorry but I stagnated all day yesterday and took no pics). The view from my bedroom window, in fact. I just walked down the path, through the gate, and mostly there was not a soul on that beach all day.I took it with my old steam camera, so it isn't too clear.

Nice pic, Au-Natural!

Guess what? More sheep pics THis is the wool, once it comes off the sheep it is put on the table where it is classed according to quality and then put in bales. (those white block things in the background)

Great photo Au_Naturel. Ren what's a steam camera? Does it run on steam Actually I'm thinking that's a brand name.

Copa what does a bale of wool go for, say the best quality, if you don't mind me asking?
