I swear I can taste that tomato, bhs!
You might have been "mad" Prof, but glad you were, that's a neat pic. It's very surreal.

My landlady has been tearing out a lot of flowers and shrubbery around the building this week, (too much work she says). She left these irises and i am glad ... they are over three feet tall and dance so beautifully in the wind.

Really enjoying the photos from our newcomers, Professer and mcshellsie, lovely to have some new participants. Mcshellsie, how do you get the copyright mark on the bottom of your photo?

Kibbles was the class pet for my daughter's 5th grade class, but he has now been adopted by our family. Here he is with some really big cheeks after frantically storing some food there!

Another image from my trip to Warsaw last week. This is part of the multi-scenario Warsaw Uprising memorial, commemorating the estimated 200,000 Poles who died during the 63 days of the Uprising.
The figures are approx twice life size.

Kibbles is a sweetie ! ... and i bet a real "handful", hahaha . Tender photo.

I put the name, date and copyright on my photos with a photo editor. I use Photo Shop Elements - but mostly use Jasc Paint Shop Pro (PSP), have been using its versions longer, and am more familiar with it. Most photo editors have an "add text" function. Hope that helps you with your question .

Fantastic, it must have been so life-like to see at that size. Warsaw sounds like a very great place to see,
and i hope you enjoyed every minute of it there.

I spotted this little creature this morning on my garden path. I believe it's a Cinnamon moth though it seems to be lost as they are usually found in meadows or near coasts, not on the outskirts of large cities!

Super photos, everyone! I really like Kibbles

Last week the truck was being filled with rubble to cart away from the demolition site. Today it was dumping stuff to fill in the hole. The area next to it may look like a parking lot, but in the summer is used as an open-air theatre. I'm guessing that this space will also fill those two roles, as it is owned by the same person (who also owns the downtown movie theatre).

In April, a friend went with me to a work-related event in western Pennsylvania, and we travelled back east on Route 30 -- smaller, hillier, and more interesting than the Turnpike. The road goes through Gettysburg, and Geri had never been there, so we got some ice cream cones and meandered around the town and battlefield.

We soon found Generals Custer and Meade holding forth on Little Round Top. Sometimes reenactors refuse to come out of character, but these two weren't such sticklers. In addition to teaching us about the original generals, the pair told tales about the Gettysburg area, their passion for reenacting, roles in Civil War movies, motorcycles, tourists, local bars, getting blown up once in a while, and on and on.

Geri has now talked her husband into going there for a weekend... all because we ditched the PA Turnpike!

As usual, K, you have a wonderful photo with interesting story. I used to go to Gettysburg a few times a year on business and I just loved touring the battlefields.

Hubby and I found this little cutie abandoned in a remote area. She was probably about 8 weeks old in this pic. We took her in, fed and bathed her, and some friends took her home to raise. I really wanted to keep her, but two dogs on the road like we are was just too much right now.
