I used to ride Green Line buses all the time, when I lived in Dormansland and East Grinstead, back in the 'eighties

It's Fall Fair time again (already!), and I snapped this yesterday of the big wheels going up in the fairgrounds at the end of my street. It all starts at noon tomorrow, and I'll get over at some point to see the farm animals and such. Not planning on going on any rides...

Thanks, ClaraSue... I wish we could pass around a virtual hat, and everyone who ever enjoyed your photos could drop in a dollar, and in no time you'd be able to buy a deluxe new camera!

I took this shot of Llangollen rail station, in north Wales, two days ago. It's the start for the Llangollen Heritage Railway - a major tourist attraction in the area.
For those unfamiliar with the Welsh language, Llangollen is pronounced something like 'Hlangofflen'

Happy Birthday, Liz! I see your little cake there.

Picqero, your photo reminded me of one I took in 2005. Yours has much more character than mine, but this is of Union Station and Trainshed in Montgomery, Alabama. My husband attended Air Command and Staff College at Maxwell AFB in Montgomery, and the graduation ceremony from the one-year school was held inside this 1898 (now-paved) trainshed.

Lots of great photos again. I was watching the tv and saw that Minnesota and North Dakota are having their State Fairs. Will we be seeing any photos from our American friends visiting their State Fair? I hope so they look like fun from what I saw on TV.

The rural counties in Pennsylvania hold some great county fairs. There is something called the PA State Fair, held at a racetrack just north of Philly, and I went once but didn't care for it.... so you won't see any photos of our fair from me!

Melbourne, the capital of Victoria, is famous for its trams.


Here is one in Chapel St, Prahran- one of the trendy inner suburbs.

These jolly musicians were just outside the restaurant where I had my birthday lunch with my Mum and sister.

Glasgow Central station whilst waiting for a train to Preston. Those who recall the pic i posted earlier in month, i took this to illustrate that the railway lines are over the road which featured in that photo.

Oh my professer when I saw the picture of the train I was sure it was taken in South Africa - similar trains, same colours from my childhood days of riding on the trains.

What a delightful image Tredici; you were real fortunate to get so close with such detail in the image.
I'd love to know what species it is; at first I though a blue jay, but obviously not

I saw this interesting sign, last week-end, outside the Sygun Copper Mine in north Wales - and yes, the sky was blue and the sun was shining

Stellar's Jay, Picqero - I also posted one last week I believe - quite common west of the Rockies throughout North America.

Hot day here in desert - a combination of heat and sun sent my thermometer right off the scale! I hope you'll forgive my dirty window.

djsgal is right. Stellar Jay. All though we commonly refer to them as "Mountain Jays". They are slightly larger than Blue Jays and have the dark head and crest. Still the same ornery temperment though. All we had to do was bait these guys with a few nuts and they would come close and pose for a picture.

Here's another shot from the old railway line that goes above Muswell Hill. It closed in 1954 and is now a country walk in between the houses.
