You two are too funny with your pig obsessions!

Beautiful photo, Professer.

Glad to "see" you again, Copago!

Liz, there is a similar type transport called the Incline Railroad in Chattanooga, Tennessee, which we really enjoyed riding on a couple of years ago. Unfortunately my hubby was the one who took the pictures so I can't show my own personal ones, but here is an interesting link to it:

I took this at dusk last Saturday. Unlikely to view anything so fun and summery again this year - the weather is awful.

Hello again Copago, glad you've got a new camera to put through its paces.

Here's a house in Hampstead plus the one next door, these houses are immune from any economy shifts as the agents round there all know.

Thanks Sats
Love that pig! "I can't believe that you have such a wonderful specimen such as that in your backyard and this is the first time we've seen it." LOL, Clara!
More playing with the new camera features and sparklers!

Here is a butterfly that I saw while at work today. Monarchs are all over Texas.

We have some nice wild countryside around here but it can get treated as a rubbish dump . Here is an example:

Did you have a rummage amongst that TW, you might have found some secret government files or some confidential banking details.

Isn't it great having a new camera, Copago? I haven't been able to get out and experiment with mine yet.

Well, summer's over. A cornfield in Indiana already cut down.

It wouldn't be at all surprising would it?

It took me a while to track down the name of that amazing leaf and I think it is from a Variegated Albo Atrovirens .

Driving through the Grand Tetons I came across this and wondered what it would have looked like while it was still alive

Oh, you've made me homesick, Lisa! ("Back home again, in Indiana...")

Great closeup of the leaf, bhs.

TW, you could have saved that photo for piqero's "Pollution" suggestion on the weekly theme thread. We have a lot of that type of dumping around us, too. Why people can't just take it to the dump is beyond me.

Here's a pair of big arts and crafts houses in Golders Green. So many now have lost the original doors and windows but these are all as intended.

I've got a happy husband at home right now - the new F-35 (Joint Strike Fighter), which is built in Fort Worth, TX, has finally arrived here at Edwards AFB for some flight testing. Last night was a big party to celebrate its arrival, and all the families got to see at last the reason our loved ones are gone from home so much.

Another approaching dust storm, taken on Friday. Ugh. The photo doesn't really show how 'dusty' is was but there are no clouds in that photo. That shed you can see is the shearing shed. A few minutes after taking it you couldn't see it at all.

This is the Souvineer/gift shop in Plockton, was used as the grocers shop in Hammish Macbeth tv series. They do a roaring trade in Wee Jock's (west highland Terrier's) made of china.

Now that's a nice plane, djsgal. I'd be happy too!
I hope your house is sealed up good, Copago. I imagine a dust storm like that could leave a lot of work to do later if it wasn't.

I thought this building was interesting. This was taken in Oakland, California in August.

Just in response to Professors two pictures earlier, we had the pleasure of staying in the Plockton Hotel for a few days in one of the two rooms with a view of the sea. Fantastic place with wonderful views and palm trees to boot

that's what you call "bringing" home the bacon bhs! lol - clara s. you're cracking me up. enjoying all the pix. it is so true about it seeming like "time stands still" there - gosh what lovely landscapes gary. lovely leaf looks like a butterfly ...



... from inside the car on a trip from Wasilla to Fairbanks, Alaska on a yearly pilgrimmage to see the Ice Sculpture Competitions. Was about 35 below 0. Camera batteries, needless to say didn't last very long when we got there. Surprisingly, walking about snapping away, it's hard to beleive but we only had sweaters on. You really do climatize to where you live after awhile. We did day shots, had dinner, then did night shots with all the lights on the sculptures.

Nope, house isn't sealed up well at all, it's an hundred year old house with about that many holes in it.

mc_shellsie, that is a stunning photo! Looks like it's straight off a postcard!


Here's my boots, I love my boots.


(yay - finally worked out how to make the photos as big as everyone elses )
