Here's a sight known to all British motorists - the hated Gatso speed camera!




I need to take a picture of another well-hated camera: the red-light camera. It takes your license plate when you run a red light.




Here is that red-light camera I was referring to. If you run the intersection when the light has turned red, it will make an image of your license plate, and the respective city will send you a citation for $75. This one is at the intersection of the Dallas North Tollway and Gaylord Pkwy. in Frisco. Plano has several intersections with them. Richardson and Garland has a couple as well.

This is the Bridge of the Americas. It spans the Panama Canal on the Pacific side of the isthmus. As it used to be the only bridge going over the canal, everyone just called it The Bridge. Looks a lot like that bridge in Sydney.

I was over at my sister's today, watering their plants whilst they're away on holiday, and took this photo of the bunny and birdie who greet visitors near their front door.

We also have traffic light cameras, and I've no objection to these. Traffic lights are clearly visible, and everyone knows they have to stop at red. UK roads though, frequently have speed limits varying constantly from 40 to 70 mph along the same stretch without any change in road conditions. Residential areas might have speed limits of anything from 30mph to 60 mph, and it's usually at the most confusing sites where speed cameras are placed - nothing whatsoever to do with road safety and everything to do with collecting as much money as possible from long suffering motorists!
Now to 'get off my soap-box', here's a peaceful image of St. Thomas A'Beckett church in the nearby village of Northaw. It was built in the 19th century to replace an older church which had burned down.

Staying with bridges -- this is the new bridge spanning the Panama Canal. It is Centennial Bridge.

Well the weather is still cool, wet and windy and I'm suppose to go golfing tomorrow. They say it's going to be sunny. I'm hopeful, it will probably be the last time this year.

To make myself happy I was looking through my caribbean photos and found this one of St. Johns Virgin Island. Ahh warm sand, sun, palm trees.

Fabulous cloud, Sue.

Daughter's birthday and our sick dog kept me from posting yesterday. So here's mine for today, a sunset in Hawaii.

This is just an absolutely ordinary view of a parade of shops in Golders Green. But I doubt you'd find it anywhere else on the internet so I have my uses

From the roof of the school I was at today, the little light rail system looks like a train set!

Here is the station (the structure with the orange roof)

Sorry djsgal I can't remember. We were on a nature hike with a group and we were suppose to stop here and go for a swim. Unfortunately the fellow running the group couldn't get permit from the government that he was a certified life guard so we just walked by.

Here's the rocky shores of Oregon. We were visiting a sea lion cave. This is through an opening on the way down.

You're right - hard to believe it isn't a model
I was working in London again today. This is Nelson's Column in Trafalgar Square, commemorating his victory over the French fleet at the Battle of Trafalgar - at which he perished. For a close-up image see Nelson

Bet y'all didn't realise London gets such deep blue skies

This house is called Little Taj because of its reflection in the tidal pond.

More satguru history. Kinloss Court on the North Circular Road in Finchley, home of one of my girlfriends long ago.

Y'all? Is that used in the UK too? It IS very handy to use, and when talking to a large group of people you can say, "All y'all"!

Too bad about no swimming, Argus - water looks so refreshing, too!

Ok, enough chatting. All y'all ( ) are going to be so sick of my Hawaii photos before too long. But here's yet another, on the Big Island at "Pu'uhonua o Honaunau", or "Place of Refuge", where vanquished warriors could go for protection from enemies and gods.

A neighbour was driving me home early this evening and the sun an clouds were spectacular, there were rays up and down, so I asked her to stop the car in the layby and attempted to capture the beauty. Unfortunately I couldn't get the rays but I still quite like this.

I have often watched the squirrels run nimbly along the wires in front of my house, but never had my camera handy before. This one is resting on the crosspiece of the utility pole.



You can see from the sky what a grey and dreary day it is today.

Im beginning to think we created a monster with this thread. Imagine hundreds of people all around the world, running around with their cameras taking pictures wherever they go.
