Argus, coming home must have been a real shock to the system! Welcome back!

Looking out my front window, about fifteen minutes ago. The footprints going off the path are mine, from retrieving my newspaper this morning, before it got buried by the drifting snow (it was very windy). I have yet to find last Sunday's paper - it's somewhere underneath all that white stuff!

What a lovely relief and generally appealing sight. A v-e-r-y blue sky this morning (not looking as threatening/unfriendly as it seems to have looked for weeks now). Unfortunately, beneath that heavenly splendor lies my street that currently sits at -4°F [-20°C]. But *alas* ... ya can't have everything, I reckon .

Anyone familiar with Private Eye magazine would have heard of the Iron Bridge on the North Circular at Neasden, near the fictional football ground. This is the very bridge, also by the site of the equally fictional Neasden Polytechnic (Now the University of the North Circular).

Satguru, I used to live in Harlesden.




It is a small world here, I've found a few people who have lived round here and are now spread across the world. I have thousands of photos of the area here and Cricklewood and Willesden are in their own set. I didn't get as far as Harlesden but you'll see many surrounding places.

That's freezing me just looking at it, and it's about 70°F here...at 11pm in February!

Well, I am out of Pennsylvania for a few days... a rare treat. These trees are alongside a turnpike rest area in Ohio. Unless they are in Indiana... I thought I'd remember, but 769 miles in a day can make one's memory blurry. Anyway, they looked like paper birch trees from a distance, but they weren't. The tree trunks had snow stuck to them, so it was just a snowy illusion.





p.s. picqero and djsgal, I am glad you liked the watercolor from the old days in Philadelphia. There are more! And I have a small pencil sketch that's looking from Highgate toward London around 1850. Have to find it and post so maybe satguru can figure out where it was done.

Gosh, we are excelling ourselves again! What a team. That is gorgeous, Kapuskasing.
Gnawra is becoming nearly as much of a poser as Winston. She saw me with the camera and jumped onto the BBQ bench and sat , laughing at me.

Lovely picture of Gnawra there, and she does seem to know exactly what you're doing.

This is the road I use most days as it leads nearly everywhere, the North Circular. This is taken from the footbridge in Golders Green pointing towards Brent Cross.

What a great picture Ren. What a happy looking fellow.

Another shot from Hawaii. We went to the Polynesian Cultural Center on Oahu where they present 7 Polynesian cultures. They have displays and villages for each. This photo shows a boat pageant they have each day where they dance on the platform while being poled down a lagoon.




The dancers shown are Tahitans

The sun was all wrong but thought I'd still take a pic - I came across this old Ford car parked alongside the Registry Office today. Obviously somebody (persons) arrived in style!

Gnawra deserves a cookie for that beguiling pose!


In snowy Chicago today... brrrrr.
This is overlooking Millenium Park, and the buildings on the right face Lake Michigan, which isn't far off the left edge of the photo.

With the cold weather lately, I never thought these tulips would make it! So I am happy that they did.

I've been hiking in the Peak District the past few days, and what great weather we've had for it!
This is Stanage Edge - a gritstone crag about 3 miles in length, from which the views are spectacular.

Terrific photos, and happy birthday, Ren!

This is the "window" photo that I didn't get to post on the weekly thread last week. I had sick kids at home, so I wasn't able to go to the library, which is where this window is here in our town.

Here is another Hawaiian Photo. This is Hanauma Bay which is a State Marine Preserve. This shot is of the beach area from the parking lot.




This a a shot of the coral reef from above

Kap, that looks like a very familiar view. I wonder if the baseball pitch is around there as I stayed opposite for a few days a very long time ago. Same road though whichever end this is.

Here is an interesting scene in the shopping centre in Golders Green, where they've pushed the floral display into the middle of the pavement for Valentine's Day.

Happy Birthday, Ren! That cake looks scrumptious!

I know you all must be nearly as tired of snow pictures as I am of the stuff itself, but thought I'd show you Winston's eye view of it when I open the back door for him to go out. No wonder he's reluctant sometimes, eh? (There is a path cleared in the other direction, so he doesn't have to wade through the big drift.)

Today, Valentines's Day, is the opening of the 'Mart' (fair) which I mentioned on the weekly theme thread. Here is a picture of the Lord Mayor's Parade through the town centre today at 12 noon. It's blurred, as they were walking very very quickly due to drizzle and annoying people taking pics.
