This is what we call "Hungry Gap Kale" in Cornwall. Growing nicely in the YWCA allotments down the road.

Incredible cactus, copago.

This is a view of "Lake Palmdale", just a bit south of where I live, which is actually just a reservoir for imported water. The canal at the bottom of the picture is the California Aqueduct, heading for Los Angeles.

While working at the airport, this is the police vehicle the airport provided for work on the airside part of the airport. A bit different from the usual police vehicle.

They really are beautiful, it is a pity the blooms only last a short time.

This is a photo I was working on at my photography class this evening, my tutor rather liked it. It would be better if I had managed to get Corbiere lighthouse slightly further to the right.

That's a gorgeous wave , Sue. I agree, a little bit left or right and it would have been perfect.
This is Alphonso, whom I was so tempted to bring home! He is an abandoned pup, half Sha Pei, found in the street by an SPCA Officer. Such a sweetie.

Unless I go on holiday it's going to be new views of old places as I reach 2 years as a digital photographer. This is another view of the centre of the shops at Golders Green, and shows many other London suburbs how a crowded area can be made to look good quite easily. The right end (as you look at the parade) is based deliberately or not on Regent Street in the centre of town, and although the shops aren't as good is a lot easier to get around. The big shop has been a clothes shop, job centre and Burger King (or next door as there are double and single units) and I frequented every one of them including the current coffee shop. It's also where I met the only person reunited with on friends reunited.

Yet another view of Gatsbyland - this time taken from near the back porch. On a very chilly (and early) morning. But it's the height of Autumn now and very pleasing to see the colors everywhere. These trees are especially likable ones, for me. They're somebody else's and those lovely leaves will eventually NOT be mine to rake up and dispose of ...

I've been in north Wales since last Friday so haven't posted anything. This is one of the many beautiful scenes in the Snowdonia National Park; the view across the calm waters of Llyn Gwynant with Yr Aran reflected in the lake.


For a larger image, see Gwynant

Beautiful photos, picqero! I couldn't even hope to pronounce those Welsh names, though.

Here's my youngest daughter, Kate, munching on some corn on the cob at a local fall festival.

Here is our new kitty, Momo. We inherited him from the daughter of my husband's boss when they had to move out of state, and the one condition is that we keep his name. So, Momo it is. At least it's easy for the kids to say. (He's named after some anime character, but I'm not sure which one since there are apparently a lot of Momos out there...)

His bottom's not really that big, it's just a funny perspective.

Cute cat!
This is my walk to the mini bus stop in the mornings , around 5.45. It was beginning to be chilly this morning, like 20 degrees.

Yesterday as I was driving home from town I could see the sun sinking fast and I wanted to get to the west coast to catch a sunset. I made it, just.

Another image from Wales last week-end, though unfortunately it was a dull and overcast day. This unusual hillside formation is known as 'the Lady of Llanberis'. Look closely to see her side profile. The small white dots you can see below the face are sheep, which gives an idea of the scale.

If you can't see her too well, look at Lady-of-Llanberis
where you can also click the small '+' sign below the image to expand it still further

Great pictures, I miss a day and get my reward! Gatsbyland looks like my sort of place, we don't have many views like that over here.
Liz's river with the concrete bridge and graffiti is just like the Brent here but that is only a few feet wide unlike yours.

Here's one of the many views from Sunnyhill Park in Hendon which is on a very steep hill.

Last weekend I went back to the house and property in the mountains where I grew up to just look around. My family sold it a couple of years ago and it's been difficult knowing that it's owned by someone else now. However, the new owners are very nice and welcome us back anytime to visit. This is a picture of my favorite tree. It has to be the largest willow I have ever seen. I plan on taking a photo for every season. Here's the Autumn.
