Rogue looks like a great, BIG girl, theresam. I'd like to see more photos of her.

MG, so sorry to hear of your accident. I'm glad you weren't hurt more than what you are. I hope you're feeling better. Love the car!

Ren, you are forever making me hungry!

This is the entrance to the Port of Beaumont, TX.

The pictures lately have been outstanding, and although it's been said several times, I must repeat -- the larger size allowance makes all the difference in the world!
Sorry to hear about your accident, MotherGoose! I keep reading references to a thread about it, but can't seem to find it. I'm so glad you're ok and I love your new car!
Hubby is out of town with the camera, so unless I'm really close to something that I can get with my camera phone, I won't be adding to the thread this week. Again, the pictures are wonderful!

Taking a leaf from Satguru's book, here's another London train - one which I think you've not posted yet, David
It's one of the driverless, yes 'no driver', trains of the Docklands Light Railway approaching West Silverton station.
I was standing on the platform of course, not in the middle of the track

I don't have any pix of trains in London, but how about snowplows in Colorado? (-8

Great snow plough pic! I can feel the cold...

Just happened to be in the right spot this morning to catch this train at a level crossing.

Tredici, welcome, and you may have just scored 2 points with Picqero - he misses snow in the UK and he loves Johnny Cash!

Liz, your pear on the last page was really terrific - looks so life-like. ALL the photos are good - sorry to hear of your accident, MG - hope you are healing quickly and enjoying your new car.

Here is a wildflower from the redwood forest.

What I do love about England is the greenery. Here is a shot taken in the Forest of Dean.

Thanks djsgal. So the Redwoods have wild irises? I have a very similar shot from a high mountain valley. At times they cover the floor, simply beautiful.

Beautiful flower, djsgal. And beautiful butterfly, bhs!


Sunrise at Mayport Naval Station, Mayport, Florida, taken within the last hour through my windshield which is why there is a spot on the photo.

Ren, that lake scene is almost identical to the one I posted on 28th July here
This is the colourful entry signboard of the nearby village of Hertford Heath. The stately building depicted on the lower part is a private school called Haileybury College.

Oh, what a pretty shade that rose is!

On the subject of trains, here is one arriving at a metro station in Washington:

Some ancestors on my Mum's side are buried in the churchard of this , Woolpit Church , in Suffolk. They made hand made bricks in a brickworks around the corner. We found lots of exhibits in the little museum in the village that were about the brickworks.

The church is not the prettiest, but of interest to the family, and everyone is very proud of the new gate.

Is the brilliant teashop in Woolpit still? Used to run by one of the Scaffold wives - real tea and the best cakes in Suffolk.

Wow, I've started a craze! All those trains from around the world- I saw the Washington Metro being completed when I was there in 1980 but the trains hadn't started running yet. The Docklands railway is the polar opposite side of London to me and besides risking the congestion charge to cross the river is a diabolical journey. However I do have some very nice photos when I went on it once but are on film.

Here is a view dear to my heart, Golders Green train and bus station where I took the 102 home from school from 1969-76. It also has one of the best cafe and sandwich bars around if anyone knows the Bar Linda.

My sister and I went out shopping tonight, and after a thunder shower when we first set out, the weather brightened and the setting sun turned the clouds pink.

Really enjoying everyone's pics - I agree that larger photos are more enjoyable! MG, hope you are feeling better soon.

I haven't been able to post pics because my memory card is still sitting in my laptop in NY and I am sitting in PA with my empty camera....

Ren, do you have any plans to go see any of the games?

Gypsy, that is a really neat photo of the train. I've yet to learn how to set my camera to show motion, .

This lighthouse is located at Mayport Naval Station in Florida. The photo is a little dark because it was at sunrise yesterday.

Back to Cambridge, and everyone's favourite part (mine too) : The Backs

I have lost count of the number of times I fell in when punting when I lived there.

I wish I had known about that, Sherry. Will look for it next time!

That made me smile - the last time we went on the backs, we took some friends on one of those lovely chauffeured evening punt rides with bubbly and food, when our rather hung over punt "driver" lost his pole... caused hillarity all round from his fellow punters.
