Sorry to hear about Wanda, Taesma. It must be hard for the children as well as you. The pics of her are beautiful.

Nice floral displays at that hotel, Ren. I hope the tea is just as nice.

This is the High Street at Battle, seen from a shady corner of the Abbey walls.

Not having a tripod night photography is pretty hit and miss, but blurred or not my mum's neighbour's house looked so nice lit up I thought I'd show the rather ragged result anyway.

Looks good to me, satguru!

Here's a macro shot of some of my roses after a heavy rain earlier this afternoon.

Out for a walk around the village yesterday and met this chap. He is a shield bug of some sort I think. I can't find him in the book. Pretty.

Great shots everyone, what an odd creature Ren.

Did a lot of yard work today so we didn't get away from the house and I think you've all had enough of my flowers for a while. Last Halloween we took Mrs. Argus's mother up in a hot hair balloon for her 75th birthday. Here is a shot of the balloon as they filled it for flight.




Click on the link below for a shot of Mrs. Argus and her mother enjoying our flight over Winnipeg.

We were about 2000 ft above sea level, it was a fine day although Grandma had her hood up from the cool air. If you look into the distance you can see another balloon.

This is another of "Mad Jack" Fuller's so-called "follies" at Brightling in Sussex. Nobody seems to know why, or exactly when, the eccentric squire adorned one of the highest points in Sussex with a 65-foot obelisk, but it's still something of a landmark on the Weald.

Lady1, I live in South Carolina near the coast. It's marshland and swamp with some interesting critters.

The leaders in today's Forres Highland Games road race, passing the Rafford war memorial. The first two are locals, but the third just turning the corner, is a visiting Australian.

I used to see this vehicle fairly frequently being driven along the road, it always looked 'angry'. Close up it looks in need of a good deal of TLC. I don't know how old this Buick would be, definitely not this year's model.



I have just Googled and it would appear to be a 1950 Buick Roadmaster Riviera. This one (scroll down the page for the photos) is in slightly better condition.

This monument honoring the men of the CCC, or Civilian Conservation Corps, is scheduled to be unveiled today, July 7. It's in Laurel Hill State Park, in western Pennsylvania (out near Cinnam0n country.)

The CCC ran from 1933-1942 and provided work for young, unmarried men during the depression. Run by the US Army, the CCC "fought forest fires, planted trees, built roads, buildings, picnic areas, swimming areas, campgrounds and created many state parks." It was a successful program, cut short by WWII, and many state and national parks in the US show a lot of CCC work in their makeup.

While I was wandering around the statue last week, a spry 87 year-old came out from the visitor center to tell me about it -- turns out, he'd been a member of the Corps, and had worked at a sawmill a mile away! He was a hoot, with some great stories, and was so appreciative that the CCC was getting recognition with this monument.

Ren, that bug is beautiful -- let us know if you ever find out its name. I got sidetracked for a while last night trying to identify it, but couldn't find any similar ones via Google or http://whatsthatbug.com/

Dear kapuskasing,

Thanks for that picture. My late father-in-law was in the CCC and he always had lots of stories to tell about it (he was a real hoot too). He would be 87 if he was alive today. It is good to see that they are getting some recognition.

Kapuskasing, thanks for the site! I sent a picture of Bertie to them to see if they know. I really have searched too.

My Dad gave me his cameras many years ago. I discovered them in the loft a while ago and thought they demonstrate the development in cameras quite well.

Left = Kodak Junior II | Centre = Konica auto S2 | Right = Olympus µ 700 All-Weather (the camera I normally use now). A length of 35mm B/W film is in the foreground.
