Cinnam0n,

Aww, such a distinguished looking young gent in his Easter best, I adore the cap, and I love the 'grin with tongue' that babies have. He's got the look down pat! Sandy

Here's one of my favourite houses in Highgate, a rare choice of green but has needed painting properly for at least 30 years.

Sat, your storm photo of North Finchley is awesome looking. Cinnam0n, you've got a real cutie there!

Here's another car from the show I attended last weekend. This one is a 1937 Ford Cabriolet. It's hard to tell, but the hood is up which gives it the different look.

I photographed this bird recently at London Zoo, but couldn't find a keeper to identify it. It was in a 'tropical jungle' environment, and looks like a kind of wader. It's about 1/3 metre from tip of bill to tip of tail. Does anyone recognise the species?

I was looking at the geese pictures and remembered that I had taken some photos on Christmas Eve while in New Mexico. These are the kind we have in the Southwest.

I was recently in Melbourne (capital of Victoria), and revisited the Faerie's Tree in Fitzroy Gardens. My kids loved it when they saw it many years ago, and it is still great to look at, even for adults! All the figurines have been carved onto the tree, way back in the 1930s.

Not that I approve of carving into a poor defensless tree... but, they are beautiful!

Thanks for the welcome Argus.

I hope to be able to post some photos soon, I just have to read a few threads to learn how first!

Love you photo Oz, I remember going there as a child but can't remember ever seeing the tree.

I love the Faerie's Tree! Front teeth missing always seemed to happen ONLY when it was time for pictures around my house. I have to give a thumbs up to the hat, too.

Thanks Clarasue, the weather did most of the work and I was lucky enough to be there at the time.

Here's a nice row of houses next to the tennis club in Temple Fortune

My sister and I both liked the porch on this house that we saw during our drive in the country last weekend. Pity the place isn't in a bit better shape, though.

A certain (prominent in sports)FT moderator was spotted by our HK paparazzi, checking out the markets.....

I managed to persuade him not to buy a horrid handbag as posted last week, for his wife.

Your boat trip along the Basingstoke Canal ends here! Well, it does until the work on the bridge (the one I'm standing on) finishes in a couple of months time. When I was a boy, our gang used to cycle to the boathouse on the right and hire out canoes. Those same canoes can still be seen through the gaps in the doors. They brought them out one sunny afternoon a few years back. I didn't go one one though. Ah! memories ..

Met this cute little dog, and its owner, while out for a walk, but forgot to ask its breed!

I believe the dog is a lhaso apso, picqero. A good friend of mine has had them for years and if that's NOT one, it's a darn good imitation!

Next to one of the newsagents I once used in my lunch breaks is now a cafe, sitting outside in single figure temperatures. Only in Britain...
