This is one of our teachers , The ancient art of dough modelling seems to have been brought up to date by some local companies. You provide a photo and they make a model. The likeness , not so noticeable here is amazing.

Great photos and interesting image, Ren. Plus I learned about chooks!

Here's a jack o'lantern that I carved last night. I used one of those paper patterns, which turn out really good if you have the patience.

Beautiful autumn pics and everything else all of you!

Lisa, What a funny shot (and caption by you!) of Clara Sue.

Gary, Thank you for the highland cow. I still find them fascinating!

I wonder if Copago's chooks could make it up those 98 steps of Santana's? They would probably need a *chook-chair* when done, eh?

ren, That is an amazing likeness. It looks like it was done with Kato or one of the other polyclays. A friend of mine does some outstanding work with it and has won a lot of awards for her figures and jewelry.

Down here that is certainly an Oak tree. I have oaks in my front yard (shumard red oak to be exact), and my backyard neighbor has sugar maples. The maple leaves are much broader. Also, the oak has a darker bark, the maple lighter in color. There are numerous types of oaks, and some of their leaves don't look similar at all!
Maybe you could post a maple leave from you area Pic? Please? I find it very interesting to see the differences in different parts of the word, and determining what each is. Quite enlightening.



Well, I did say that your oaks might be different to ours. Here in the UK there are many types of maple, or acer as they are also known, but only one species the Field Maple is truly native.
Our local park has many maples, so I popped round and took this photo of fallen leaves today.

That is a mighty strange chuck in the middle, looks more like a dak.

lol yeah - the duck. She thinks she's a chook, does that count? She never did get a name because when we got her she came with a mate who didn't last the night out (foxes) so we didn't name her incase she was heading the same way. But three years later she's still going strong and I guess her name is now The Duck. It's lucky our dogs are placid as she eats their food.

ren, that model is incredibly realistic- I know they can now make false teeth with a photo (more like a hologram) and lasers, you don't think they've had a little technical assistance as it almost looks human!

Here's the place that revolutionized (ie wrecked) most local shopping streets when people shopped here instead in 1976. I rarely go here now as I've bought everything I need for my house long ago and nearly all the other shops here have branches elsewhere I can go to without all the hassle. Brent Cross shopping centre, built on what was a greyhound stadium and sewage plant. I dread to think what happened to the sewage when the place was demolished...

Well frankly Copago, I think incase would have been a great name! Just think, incase, the dak...

Great photos all. Thanks Picqero for posting the maple leaves. Yes, that looks much like our maples. I do so enjoy seeing what everyones photos.

That jack-o-lantern is impressive! Love the chooks and The Duck

Here we have Hallowe'en candy awaiting distribution by my front door. Didn't get as many hobgoblins and witches as expected, so I'll be eating the remains myself...
