Love your bee, bhs, though it looks almost wasp or hornet-like! Beautiful flowers, mcshellsie.

Here are the kids "climbing" a redwood. Notice they didn't get too far off the ground!

TW - I'm confused...does that mean that anytime you have family or friends in your photo that it should go into the Family and Friends forum, and not in photo-a-day?

This is a rare picture from me as it's within the extended congestion charge area so can only be accessed evenings (if it's light) and weekends for photographers, shoppers, visitors and anyone else who can't afford to throw money away on travelling. I've done a bit more research on our white buildings and they are all Regency, and followed Georgian and were mainly built as planned estates hence the rare grid system in this country. This is Ladbroke Grove in Kensington.

Yes, that would be best. Photo-a-Day has always been primarily a place for photos other than those that show people. It's a great forum for a window on all parts of the world, photos of flora and fauna or objects and places that interest us. We can see that this is mostly the case from browsing the photos. Long may that continue.

However, it's appreciated that members do sometimes want to show photographs of themselves, family or friends. Since it has been thought we could make it possible for members to show photos of themselves, it would be best if we had a seperate forum where all 'people' photos could be shown (subject to the considerations here), thus keeping Photo-a-Day for its intended original purpose.

Sorry for the lapse in the rules. I hadn't realized. Please let me recaption the photo to "The Rare and Unusual Redheaded Bookworm."

The kids wanted to go horseback riding while on vacation, so we did. Here's my view yesterday.

This large, lethal looking spider was repairing a web on my gate. The next day there was a sac of eggs and no spider. Not the best pic as it was taken at night.

Great horsey shot, Lisa!

I missed putting in a photo of our first stop on our trip, San Francisco. I was sorry to not be able to completely see the Golden Gate Bridge due to fog, but I still think it makes a neat photo.

Part of the Red Arrows aerobatic team come down low over our house. They don't look particularly red in this shot. Poor light and not much time to take the photo are to blame ..not the photographer

Sherry, thank you for identifying the flower, you sure know your stuff! Now
that you say it, yes, it definately looked like a sweetpea in "miniature". Is that the same thing as "vetch"?
dj'sgal, that's a great photo of the Golden Gate, bhs, your grandaughter reading is an awesome shot, a prizewinner if there ever was one. Professor, your travels are beautiful, as usual. TW - awesome devils!

We called this "the sad horse" - taken on a street near the Guinness Warehouse (factory), Dublin, Ireland.

I recently had a holiday in New York. I took this picture in Central Park, close to Strawberry Fields. I didn't have time to do the tour of the park in it sadly.

Actually, I think I like your photo of the Golden Gate Bridge better like it is than if it was a clear shot of the whole bridge, djsgal. And I knew you'd appreciate the horsey shot,

This was taken out of my mom's bedroom window in Colorado.

Ooh, lovely rainbow! I agree about the Golden Gate, too, much nicer with the fog. TW, what can I say - love the photo, wish I'd been there to see them!

My day lilies seemed to enjoy the rain this afternoon...

What is rain? I haven't seen much lately and the grass is turning a not-so-nice brown. Can you send some my way, Liz?

Wish I could, Dave! I know how you must feel, having had several "dry" summers in Spain.
