This is on the edge of the canal at Coalport - just above the bizarre tar tunnel - not a place to visit if you are claustrophobic!

There's something especially pleasing about this photo. It's stark, rough and beautiful all at the same time.

I agree! I love the color of poppies anyway, but they look marvelous in front of that fence.

We went to Manassas National Battlefield in Virginia this weekend - this bridge spans a creek about 1.5 miles down one of the walking trails.

Looks like Nifti's been romping somewhere wet!

Like that photo, Sherry - I imagine you could explore for days around there.

A collection of old buoys by the Battery Point lighthouse.

Oooh love that photo djs - different sort of old boys..lol

Did you get to Point Reyes lighthouse - went years ago before the knees were trolleyed - very atmospheric in the mist - but a bit spooky.

Coalport is such an interesting area and full of reminders of the industrial revolution, but pretty too.

Nifti looks as though she has been naughtfti... cheeky!

Thanks for all the words of welcome. Have to say Burg's photo is very touching and a terrific idea. Also love the poppies, the busy bee, the bridge photo with the reflections (I love reflection pictures)but am an absolutely sucker for the puppy pix.

Here is the aforementioned shot from the Farmer's Market.

Welcome Tredici

A little out of focus but here is a photo of a squirrel enjoying a slice of toast:

Thanks, everybody, for the compliments on the poppies.

Sherry, I really like your canal photo, and yours, too, gypsy of Manassas. I can just feel the warmth and humidity in both of those.

Just across the street from the Port in Beaumont, Texas is a "Yellow Ribbon 'Round the Old Oak Tree" for our returning soldiers to see. Taken yesterday morning.

I have to agree with all the comments made about the poppies and the building. Kate you nailed it with,"It's stark, rough and beautiful all at the same time."

Sherry, that canal looks absolutely intriguing to me, would love to explore the area.

Another beautiful plant, bhs!

gypsy, too bad that photo wasn't up in the 'reflections' theme, it's wonderful.

nifti is so entertaining, wet or dry, eh!

djs, like the buoy tree. Any 'bottle trees' in your area, since I know you don't have lighthouses?

Welcome, Tredici, and that's a nice shot, looks very refreshing.

Out of focus isn't interfering with his snack, is it, tw?

Those onions look good enough to eat - such a clear shot.. almost like a painting.
The tree with the yellow ribbon is so good - wish we did something like that in the UK for our troops.
The piccis just get better and better.

Welcome Tredici, always nice to see another name around

More in my station collection, this is my personal favourite station building, which replaced the old Hillingdon when they moved the A40 to go where the station used to be. You can't see the whole station except from the main road as far as I know but the close shots are still quite impressive.

This is a shot of our Great Dane Rogue at her graduation from Obedience class,novice level. She is named for the girl in the X-Men movies; notice the white streak; not because she is a bad girl. We are however very sure that she will be a big girl since she was just 8mo old and weighed in at around 100 lbs when this photo was taken last month.

Charles is adorable!

This is my new car. It's a Nissan Pulsar 2005 and it's in mint condition. Only 30,000 kilometres (18,600 miles) on it.

Some of you know that last Monday I was involved in a nasty car accident. Luckily no-one was seriously hurt. I have a whiplash injury plus bumps and bruises but all are healing nicely. I was rear-ended and pushed into the car in front of me. I was the middle car in a five-car sandwich. My old car was a write-off (totalled) so I had to buy a new one.

I went for a family evening meal at my landlord's the other night. He got the crab specially as he knew his daughter in law loved it, but the rest of it was quite simple Cantonese home made food, but quite delicious.
