That's a real postcard shot Picqero!

This is the entrance to the platforms in Hanwell station, but had something of the Gibraltar caves to it as well if anyone's been there. You can't get to Ealing Broadway so easily from Gibraltar though.

This statue, in a small park not far from my house, commemorates the first survey in this area, in 1785.

Yet more great shots: that very atmospheric Shelley... Sat's looks a bit spooky.

Here is another shot of one of the quieter parts of Corfu town - very much a living city, rather than tourist resort... a lot of Italian influences.

Last Sunday we went to Channel 31 (Access) which is our local community television channel here in Perth. Maynooth was interviewed for a local current affairs programme called "The Couch". For FT members in Perth, the show will go to air this coming Sunday (13th). I'll post a photo of Maynooth on the set tomorrow.

Appearing on the same programme was Micro, the wedge-tailed eagle, pictured above. I took this photo back-stage before we went onto the set. He is only a baby and he is called Micro because he is small for a wedge-tailed eagle and is unlikely to grow any bigger. He lives at a local animal refuge and will never be released into the wild because he is half-blind which would affect his ability to find prey to eat.

The creeks and mud flats of north Norfolk where samphire grows. Cockles, mussels, crabs and whelks are the main catch here.

Namib Primary School, Swakopmund, Namibia. I would love to go to school in a building like this. Guess the kids don't appreciate it much.

Professor, I forgot to mention that your photo taken while walking over the bridge in Luzerne is really great. TW, I have really come to love the image stabilization on my camera. Lily, I hadn't heard of samphire and had to look it up on Wikipedia. I think it's interesting to find that besides being eaten, Marsh samphire ashes were used to make soap and glass. Picqero, I love the picture of Venice! Someday, I plan to make a trip there.

This wall was right next to the cat (photo which I posted the other day) in Creede, Colorado.

Old Oak Common is one of the main rail depots of London and a great place of pilgrimage for enthusiasts, with occasional open days with trains running there for passengers (rather than repairs). It's in the middle of Harlesden. This is the line leaving it, the depot was behind me.

Ianser !! Thank heavens you told me! I would have made a DRASTIC mistake ordering a bison burger!

Welcome to the photos Ianser, never know what you will see here, lol.

This is a photo of the most beautiful place on earth to me. (Ayrshire)

Walking down into Cumnock by way of 'Glaisnock Street' beside the Glaisnock burn, early on a summer Sunday morning; August 2007. 'Townshead Street' veering off to the right.
It surely is a piece of heaven.

Another image of Venice, this is the 16th century Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore, seen from the upper deck of our cruise ship 'Splendour of the Seas" last week.

So many more great photos everyone!

These three are part of the petting zoo that was set up just off the main shopping street downtown today, as a feature of the sidewalk sale that's going on. That in turn is part of this weekend's "Waterfront and Ethnic Festival".

For anyone with Children this is a must when visiting Scotlands North. It is the Jacobian Railway, but bills it self as the Harry Potter train, it travels from Fort William to Malliag. It travels the rouste used in the film and travels over the Glen Finnan Viaduct thats seen in the films.

The Airbus A380 flies in for the Farnborough Airshow. The tree is fairly close. The aircraft is quite a bit further away.

All such great photos : the lift in Falkirk looks awesome: Love the ducks and the HP train - did you go on it Gary? Clever shot of Ayrshire town Shelley.

This is Etoile in Paris - the traffic is scary although seems quiet at this time of day!
