Perhaps some don't post every day because there is a finite number of photos that show the area where they live, or objects that make a good photo. New posters showing their part of the world, or photos of items, are always welcome. Nonetheless, perhaps there isn't that much of a scarcity of photos being displayed at present. We are up to around 100 this month already.

Here's a photo typical of Autumn day around our way. The webs looked better yesterday with some sun on them. Unfortunately, the camera had been left behind. This one was taken this afternoon. Unlike yesterday, the day was damp and gloomy:

These turtles in Hong Kong Park were all looking very intensely at the camera, obviously waiting to be TV discoveries.

This is where I parked my car (and had to pay!) to take a little video of the centre of Golders Green. The garden belongs to the church which has been a ballet school as long as I remember.

I took this photo in the city this week. It is the Holocaust memorial in Stirling Gardens. It has three triangular faces. One face declares it to be dedicated to the victims of the Holocaust – the 6,000,000 Jewish people who perished at the hands of the Nazi regime. The same message is written on the second face in what I presume to be Hebrew.

On the third face is the following:

First they came for the Jews
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for the Communists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a Communist.
Then they came for the trade unionists
and I did not speak out
because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for me
and there was no one left
to speak out for me.

I can't do the photo threads anymore becuase photobucket is blocked on this computer. So I can't see any pics either (except Tellies and Bhs) . I really miss it. Any ideas where else i'd be able to upload photos?

Quote:

Here is my Emu egg (Thank you, Copago)


no worries. I can't see the pic, if it's small could you email it me?

Winston was on the alert as he watched some neighbour kids on their bikes and roller blades in front of our house.

What exactly is to the right side of the cat? It looks scary! I like the way the "tool" made her ears lacy, like wings...Nice, Jar!

To the right of the cat is some of her yarn that was hanging down. She is actually laying on the shelf of her scratching post with the yarn hanging from the fireplace mantel.

I'm guilty here and the only reason is I have been lazy. Sorry everyone will have to make up for my laziness.



This is a picture I took in January when we went to Ndlofo (Place of the Elephant). This Elephant was having a mud bath, not a sight you see everyday.

The photo I took of webs yesterday made me remember one that has been spun in a rarely visited shed we have at the bottom of the garden. The whole interior of the shed is slowly becoming one big network of webs. I'm going to let it develop further. Here's a particularly thick part of it:

WOW, lots of great photos! Curious, though, where is Sue? Hope she is OK.

Great web shots, very Halloween-y.

Copago, sure miss your contributions too. Must ask, if that's the size of an emu egg, I wonder what an ostrich egg looks like in comparison!

Here's mine, some desert blooms I took last week.

I wonder why photobucket has been blocked on your computer Copago, seem s strange! In the 'Photo posting guide' thread Tellywellies mentions Irfanview as an alternative posting method so maybe this could work for you?
That's some web complex TW - a 'web city' one might say - presumably the weavers all have to eat, so I wonder what other creatures lurk in your shed?

A couple of days ago in the Funtrivia lounge 'High Low of the Day' thread, I posted that I was taking my grandson to see Barnet FC soccer club playing Mansfield Town today. Here's one of the many action images from the match. Barnet are nicknamed 'the Bees' for obvious reasons and Mansfield's nickname is 'the Stags'. The score was a 1-1 draw, though Barnet unfortunately missed a penalty which would have given them a 2-1 win!

I'm here! I have had an eye infection for the past week so not been in the mood for photos. This is one I took earlier in the year.

Well, thanks to aramis for prompting me to look around a bit more - I found imageshack which apparently isn't blocked. (who know why photobucket is, it's a government thing )

Fingers crossed this works!

It's my son with our new pet lamb which we found orphaned. Her name is Tibby. She was a day or two old when we found her and aboutthree days old in this pic.

Here is a mystery. Two brides, walking through Hong Kong Park, chatting. One in Western dress and one in Chinese.

This photo goes under the title of one of my pet peeves, which is the backward letter "n". If you'll look at a lot of store marquees, many, many of them will put the letter "n" up backwards. This sign was found inside a family grocers in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Copago, Connor (that's his name, isn't it?) is so photogenic. Have you thought of a career for him in modeling? At least as as kidlet?

Yep, it's COnor - just the one 'n' though. Thanks for the compliment.
Nah, life's a bit busy already. Distance wouldn't help us either. Plus I can't see his sitting still long enough!
