As satguru said, "it's been raining all day today', so here's another image from my trip to Wales. It's the statue in Caernarfon of David Lloyd George, prime minister of Britain during the first world war. Not unreasonably he seems to be objecting to the gull standing on his head

This is a shot of the first set of locks as we began passing through the Panama Canal. We were going west to east.

These flowers were blooming in my sister's garden on the Sunday of Thanksgiving weekend, quite late for this part of the world.

A quite nice doorway in Temple Fortune.

I've been ripping up the bathroom floor for most of the day, so here's another image from last week-end in Wales.
Bill and Ben the flower pot men were a children's classic on UK television in the 1950s and 60s, and I'm sure many UK FT members will recall them.

As we passed through the Panama Canal we came to Gatun Lake. An artificial lake created for navigation through the canal. There was a lot of traffic as we went along. Here is another cruise ship going the opposite way.



It was just after taking this photo that I almost dropped my camera as our ship sounded it's horn, 3 times. Then just as I recovered from that the other ship did the same. None of the other ships we passed did this, so I'm assuming they were just saying hello to each other. They weren't from the same cruise line.

picqero, I love the statue with the gull on its head.

Here are some flowers from my back yard. I have no idea what kind they are. Any suggestions?

I have no pics to contribute, but the flowers look like Sweet Peas, djsgal.

I am very facinated by the Panama Canal, and the activity there, argus9!

I finally made it into the city on the weekend and, as promised, here's a photo of our large rock ball - for TW.




Piqero, we had Bill and Ben on TV here in Australia too! I remember them well, although I was never a huge fan.

Guess what I did today?



The polling station, as marked by this sign, was just at the end of my road, so I had no excuse not to vote.

Surely, Mother Goose, you are much too young to remember Bill and Ben?I certainly can't...
We have posh buses too, but sometimes they get a bit hemmed in.

A nice day today, so here's a local scene of a peaceful lake in the nearby Lea Valley Regional Park. The autumnal foliage of the trees and bushes are nicely reflected in the calm water.

I went on vacation with my best friend from High School, then got busy at work, so it's been a few weeks since I've posted any photos (or even looked at FT). It's taken me all day to catch up with all the new threads and great photos!

Since I missed the trains theme last week, I'll just have to add my train photo here.

Interesting photos from all corners of the world!

Here's a photo (taken today ) to show a little of how some people live in the desert here. It's like ramen noodles, or instant soup: "Just Add Water". This field of alfalfa is purely irrigated.

Right next to St John’s Cathedral (pics of that another day)is the former French Mission building. Despite its name, serving as the French Mission is only one of the building’s many uses. Originally an American trading house, and then briefly the Russian consulate, the building was finally bought by the French, and today it serves as the Court of Final Appeal.The Court of Final Appeal is the highest Branch of the Justice system here and is presided over by the Chief Judge.

Another typical local view, from my old patch of East Finchley. This is the better part.

It was a dull, rainy day here today, so here are some more flowers from my sister's garden, taken last weekend.

Small group of us lately...where is everybody??

Mine for today - this is Sugar, a 20 year old Arabian mix, who I am learning to ride. Finally taking lessons after all these years of wanting to!

As you're complaining posts are sparse today, I'll post one I took yesterday.

This is the "Cathedral Church of St Mary of the Assumption", in Aberdeen, that was opened in 1860.

Yes, Mugaboo, looks like pictures are scarce. So, I played with a picture of my cat Duchess. This is a shot after I selected "something." Now don't ask me what tool I selected, but I thought the result was interesting. It took out most everything that did not have color to it, and included her yarn. But it disregarded her nose. It wasn't until I looked at this picture that I ever realized she has a black ring around her left eye! Well, we've only had her a year...



And here is the shot larger.

I think this is going to be my "artsy" picture for the year.

I've also noticed the lack of posts - maybe after all there should be a 'photographer's badge' to encourage others to post?
Here's my offering for today, another London image. This is of course Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin, Jr, KBE, better known as Charlie Chaplin, star of silent movie comedy. Although he spent most of his career in the USA, Charlie was born in London which accounts for his statue in Leicester Square. The full size image is Here and the whole statue is Here

I haven't posted for some long time now, but I am amazed at your beautiful photos every day.

Here is my Emu egg (Thank you, Copago !) side by side with a Romanian chicken one.
