This is my first attempt ,so I hope it works



Welcome Martin, and looking forward to more of your travel and local images.
These are a few of our hyacinths - I bought a 'job lot' of bulbs and they've grown nicely.

Welcome Martin and Gamemaster!

Nice hyacinths, picqero - always did love those.

In honor of my husband's and my 3rd anniversary today, here is a photo that I took when we were on our honeymoon on St. John. We took a lovely sunset cruise around the island - and enjoyed plenty of those fruity rum drinks!

Gorgeous hyacinths, they smell so good.

On Sunday we visited The Deep in Hull and this was one of the fish.

Thanks ClaraSue - nothing special today, but this Monday we are visiting the Grand Canyon, so I hope to have a photo or two to show when we get back!

Here is a bog-standard (get it?) view of suburban London, Edwardian (left) and 1930s shops (right) with inappropriately sited tardis style toilet no doubt costing far more than the original penny (and that, pardon my candour, was only for a number 2) alongside the little garden and sign welcoming you to Winchmore Hill.

This is Burnham Market, otherwise known as 'Chelsea on Sea', as it is a popular weekend retreat for London second-homers (actually pricing the locals out of the market). I can vouch for the expense as our coffees today were the most expensive I've ever paid! The water in the road is not from rain, but is a river which can vary greatly in depth, which you have to paddle through to cross the road.



Further info here about the village and connection to Horatio Nelson who was born in nearby village of Burnham Thorpe

Sue - I hope you enjoyed 'The Deep'. Glad to see my birth city has some appeal, rather than the derogatory press it usually receives!

I was up very early this morning, and the dawn sky through the trees was red. 'Red sky in the morning, etc' - so we're presumably in for a change in the weather!

Lovely pink sky there set off by the branches.

Here's another typical London scene, my current project is station buildings and this bus terminated there at New Barnet.

This is another fish from my visit to the aquarium - I was most impressed at the way it blends with the rocks.

A side of Hong Kong that the emmets don't see. This is East Kowloon where the old Kai Tak airport was. There are plans for redevelopment, of course(this is Hong Kong). At the moment it's a bit bleak.

This week's photo of the river is at about the same place as last week, and the water level is up quite a bit. There was dry ground under those trees a week ago!

All good photos - I especially like Sue's aquarium pictures - I think those are difficult to take and have them turn out so nicely.

Well, here's yet another poppy photo. My hubby brought these home after going out for a jog. My daughter's lima bean plant is in the back.

That bright light patch at the top of the image isn't bleak What is it?
I was in London again today. Trafalgar Square, where Nelson's Column stands, has a spare plinth which is now used to show the works of modern sculptors. I didn't like the idea at first, but it's grown on me. The current sculpture is by by German sculptor Thomas Schutte, and is called Model for a Hotel 2007

This is a photo I took at Portmeirion in North Wales .It shows a part of the village & I managed to get quite a good effect with the sun coming through the trees .I was pleased with it anyway .



(I hope nobody minds that this photo was taken last year .I'm not sure if the rules are that the photos should be recently taken .Newbie alert ! )

Photo resized

The photos can be any age as long as you took them Martin, I think the size may be another issue though... (it will be fixed though).

They'd just rebuilt and replanted the flowerbed in Northway Gardens, Hampstead Garden Suburb.

Great Photo Martin bit big though. I'm sure it will be taken care of. Welcome to this thread by the way. Great shots everyone. I've been busy so I haven't been able to get out with the camera but soon. Mrs Argus and I have started delivering Meals on Wheels ( Hot meals to the elderly ) and I have to remember to take the camera with me

This shot is from our trip to Hawaii and is of a banana plant. It was pouring rain when I took this one I think you can even see the rain.



Larger shot

Sorry if the larger shot looks a bit blurry I was trying to keep the camera dry.

Here's another shot of the river from yesterday, showing a lot of water covering what is usually a grassy bank. It has rained all day today (hence no new photos), so I guess there might be even more water there by now!

There are a pair of these dragons guarding the entrance to a property not far from where I live (in fact, directly across the road from the burned out bushland photo I posted a few days ago). I've always rather liked them; they are obviously handmade and quite unique.

The initial idea was to take a photo each day and to post that photo but almost immediately people started to post photos they had taken in the past so we dropped the 'taken today' part. Now we accept any photo taken by you and you cannot appear in the photo, so no taking one in a mirror or with a timer so you appear in it. Oh, and only one photo to be posted in a twenty-four hour period.

Yet another fish, a real miserable looking specimen.

There are many period houses in local villages, such as this Tudor cottage in Benington. Obviously not a grade listed building, or they wouldn't have been allowed to install modern looking windows.
