Picqero, that is definitely a Lhasa Apso, but his facial hair has been trimmed back. Some people I knew had one and called him Lutely (Apso-lutely, geddit?) They can be sweeties.A Google hit will show them with full hair.

Continuing our visit to Melbourne, this is the historic Palais Theatre on St Kilda Beach. Just to the left is another Melbourne landmark, Luna Park, and the beach itself is just behind the theatre.


This week you can see the Black Eyed Crowes, coming up look out for Jose Feliciano, Duran Duran, the Kiev Ballet and Joe Jackson.

It is a nice place to visit, but I could never live there. The weather is totally ridiculous. It is renowned around the country as having four seasons in one day...

As we Melburnians say, if you don't like our weather..... just wait a minute and it will change!
I enjoy this thread so much. Thanks to all for the wonderful pictures.

Reminds me of when a visitor from another country came to our office in New Mexico and during the morning it snowed, then got sunny and warm, then clouded up and rained, then turned windy...the visitor, standing outside during a smoke break looked up at the sky and said, "ah, New Mexico, four seasons, one day"

This was an option for showing in this week's theme but I used a different object instead. The photo took a bit of planning so I thought I'd show it here. It's a pin stuck in a piece of paper:

Good bit of macro photograhy there TW; don't think I'd have got it right if you hadn't told us what it is!
Spot the rabbit, nicely camouflaged.

Hello again... This picture should have been posted yesterday, but I lost track of time while looking at all of March's photos. They are all so interesting, including the snowy ones.
Here is a glimpse in early March of the Three Mile Island nuclear plant. March 28 was the 29th anniversary of the accident there.

Fishing is a popular pastime around here, though never appealed to me!
This guy is almost camouflaged against the riverbank!

We got back from our trip to Florida just yesterday, so you all may be quite sick of beach photos by the end of the week!

This would have been my "unusual angle" photo. Couldn't my daughter Erin join the circus as a contortionist? (It's all in the angle, you know. )

The other day I went for a walk along Philadelphia's Wissahickon Creek, or, in Philly-speak, "wint down uh Wiss".

Edgar Allan Poe wrote a piece titled, "The Elk (Morning on the Wissahiccon)" in which he states,
"Now the Wissahiccon is of so remarkable a loveliness that, were it flowing in England, it would be the theme of every bard, and the common topic of every tongue, if, indeed, its banks were not parcelled off in lots, at an exorbitant price, as building-sites for the villas of the opulent."

This picture is just a little upstream from the area of Mr. Poe's reverie:



The full tale (about 8 pages when in a book) is here:

Lovely pics, everyone!
The village not too far away from me is very famous as it has a Wishing Tree. It is hundreds of years old . At Chinese New Year, people throw a wish written on paper , tied to an orange(to weigh it) up into the tree. A few months back a branch of the dear old tree broke off, so a new one was needed. Buddhist monks and their representatives have searched for a suitable replacemnt and at last, this week end it arrived. It is a beautiful banyan (more of it later.) The monks had to bless the new tree and it was planted . All the village was there and of course neighbouring villages sent their lions and dragons for good luck
Here is a visiting dragon. It was a terrific ceremony, lots of lovely food and lots of colour and noise.

Some pictures of the old tree

A beautiful spring day today, made all the more enjoyable by watching these new born lambs. Image not too clear as they were a distance away. I so wanted to climb the gate......

What wonderful photos. What an interesting place you live Ren. Lilyalli the lambs are soooo cute.

Still too much snow around to take any new photos. Although I checked under the pile next to the house and the Daffodils are coming up so I'll soon be able to show those.

So here is a photo from last summer of my Clematis in the backyard.

The clematis are beautiful, argus. Hang in there, spring is just around the corner!

Here's my stepson Alan with a little friend.

Looks like it was a fun trip to Florida, Djsgal!

Here is a leftover from my trip to Chicago in February -- it's the free rink at Millenium Park, with Michigan Avenue on the right. It sure was cold that night.

My sister and I went out shopping a few days ago, and I found this hall/sofa table, which fits perfectly behind my sofa and makes the ideal spot to display my old Underwood typewriter. The interior of this typewriter, taken from the side, was the photo I posted in the Unusual Angles thread.
