This could as easily go in the "Yellow" theme thread as I got this little gang together for a portrait with that in mind, but I've decided to leave them out as an Easter decoration, so here they are.

I've got nearly 5000 photos saved for a rainy day if necessary but nearly all I add are from the same day or week as it's a good reason to keep me occupied.
This is a very traditional station, Woodside Park. Now on the London Underground it was originally overground till taken over later on.



Apart from looking full size here when previewed the Photobucket has worked fine here since the system started working, it does take ages though compared to before.

Awww, Liz, I love your little 'gang'! They don't look like a dangerous one, either, like some. They could probably pull off a robbery by 'cuteness'. Sandy

Good on you for quitting smoking Liz (is that correct English!!!!) I quit many many years ago, now if I could only loose some weight I would be very happy.

I haven't been posting lately because we've been traveling too much and I haven't been able to get a good internet signal. I have been taking pictures, though, so I have a few to add.

This is a neat little house near one of the bases we go to in southern California. I've been wanting to get a picture of it for some time because I like the shape of the roof. I think it may have been some kind of business in the past because it looks like there is some writing on the front. I had to use photoshop to remove a road sign that was blocking the view of part of the house.

I took this today whilst eating a McDonald's cheeseburger (haven't had one in about 10 years - it's shrunk!) in car park between snow showers. I realised this building won't be here much longer as the factory closed in December, so thought I'd take an image before it's knocked down. The closure saw the disappearance of the soup cans, made famous by artist Andy Warhol in the 1960s.

It was the first major plant to be built outside USA and has been a major local employer for 50 years, so it's demise is a big blow for the town.

Oh that is rather sad lilyalli after such a long time too. I love their tomato soup.

This is my frist time in here for a while. I actually have some decent photos.

They have a thing on at the moment in Adelaide where they project images onto historical buildings and make them look cool.

Here is one



and here is another one.

The first is the Elder music hall, and the second is either part of the library or part of the museum, I'm not sure which.

It actually snowed here today, and even lay for long enough to snap a few photos!
This is the rear of my house.

It was a beautiful sunny day yesterday, so my sister, Mum and I went for a drive in the country. One of the places we made a point of going was Corbyville, just north of Belleville, and the site of the Corby distillery from 1905-1991. This is one of the buildings that is still there, which from a bit of googling I gather was the power plant.




Most of the websites describe Corbyville as 'abandoned' or a 'ghost town' but I can't say it comes across as such. There's an inhabited village, called Corbyville, not far from the abandoned buildings, and even the buildings aren't completely abandoned. One of the old excise warehouses is used (at least in the summer) for parties and meetings.

Ft. Irwin, California is located in the desert down a thirty mile stretch of road that leads only to the base. Just before entering base security is a mountain of boulders where the different units that have passed through have painted their units' insignia. Some of the boulders are huge. A closer look at some neat boulder paintings.

It was lovely to wake up to find it white over, although the timing was wrong - I'd love to see this at Christmas. I have to admit that this was built by adults. But hey, we're all still children at heart! Sadly it had melted by 4pm and Wilkinsons Car Park was back to normal....

Should have taken my camera out on our walk today - the kids built snowmen in the playground, playing on all the equipment. Little snowmen at the top of the teeter totter, big ones at the bottom.... The one on the swing kept falling off, though.

Yesterday's snow was gone by the afternoon, and it snowed again quite heavily this morning, but didn't last long. This was the view down the garden while it lasted.

We went to feed the ducks today, but this very greedy bad-tempered goose attacked them (and us!) and took most of the bread.

Is that a wild goose lilyalli? Looks so strange to my eyes - we usually only see Canadas and snow geese here....

Another weather themed picture, sometimes bad weather helps rather than hinders, the sun regularly fogs many angles I can't shoot in, but these storm clouds made North Finchley look a lot more interesting than it usually is.

It seems that the Easter Bunny left this basket of eggs outside my sister's front door yesterday

It's a greylag goose quite common throughout Britain, and distinguished from the smaller pink footed goose which has a black and pink bill and darker neck. Greylags are large geese, and are often domesticated, but also wild, so there are many feral birds.

Thanks for answering agony's query, picqero. I'm not very clued up as to types of geese and would have had to dig out my 'bird' book as I wouldn't have been able to get beyond 'common goose'.

No problem, and glad you weren't offended at my jumping in to identify the goose. They're common in the nearby Lea Valley Regional Park so I see them often. This is a group, or should I say 'gaggle', of them which I photographed a few months ago.

What beautiful paintings ClaraSue. I thought it looked like a rubbish dump until I looked at the enlarged picture.
