I went to the park to listen to a Concert on the Bay, and got the bonus of watching a couple of guys para-sailing, and this sailboat as well. Never did manage to get them all in one shot...

These are Verdins. They're very small birds -- members of the tit family (that's for you, DG).

These guys are hanging upside down on a light fixture in our atrium at work. They do eat the bugs around the fixture, but then they just hang around.

Very quirky! (but attractive....)

Back to boats:

I think this is a sail training boat for youngsters. First thing I saw when I looked out of window this morning.

School reunion time again, this is a bit of the garden by where my classroom was on the left, although it was replaced with the current one as only a temporary building

Once again I need help! Have no idea what this is growing in my planter! The long stems feel a bit like silk/satin. The base (hard part of the stalk) has a reddish tint.

I think it is nice, but would love to know what the heck it is!




Any assistance is greatly appreciated!


(Edited to add: My sister and I did not plant this, it just started growing a few weeks ago literally out of nowhere!)

JTJ, hate to say this, but that looks like a grass weed. May want to leave it and see how it progresses before you yank it!

Oooo Sherry, that looks like an interesting cinema, I'd go there! Couple of nice garden shots there, Sat. Birds and dogs too. And sailing vessels, large and small! Hard to come up with a boat picture in the mountains of a rain forest - hard but not impossible. This was taken last week in the museum of the Basilica in Cartago that I've posted a couple of photos of already. Who knew I'd be posting this one too! Apologies for quality, it was shot through glass under lights.



Several showcases feature relics, mementos and offerings from the faithful, who felt their prayers to Our Lady of the Angels were answered. This fellow carved a boat with the date of his rescue, and name of rescue boat and Captain. He had been "Lost for 34 days in high seas"

Wow!

Here is a bore that we have and four generations of pumping systems on it. That steel drum is from the original steam engine that would run it, Then next to and leaning on that is the old mill that collapsed in the 60s. Both of those were over a well so that was discarded as it had falled in a bit and that new windmill put up. It broke down about ten years ago and it was cheaper to just to put an electric pump down it (the generator of which is what you see on the trailer to the right in the pic) . The first chance it plays up and we'll change to a solar pump.

That's the first time I've seen a cactus wren, PDAZ. Lovely bird.
Spanishliz, nice to see a couple of goldfinches, one of Ontario's more colourful birds.
Tredici, all I can say is Wow!! Great capture!
Copago, I feel positively lazy seeing all your shots of ongoing work around your home.

haha, I don't have to do too much work in that windmill pic. When that steam engine was running, 80+ years ago, there used to be a man live there in a hut which is about 20kms away from the homestead. His job was to go and cut trees down to get the wood to stoke the fire and there was very little time for him to do much else. It was basically a full time job to keep the water pumped at that one place. Nowadays all we have to do is zip out there in the vehicle, put the diesel in the pump, press start and go home. Can be done in less than half an hour two or three times a week.
Crazy how times change in a relatively short space of time.

Hi gang!

I would like your ideas about a couple things to do with the photo forum. Thought a change would be a good holiday so I'd love to hear your ideas ... head over to this thread!

In keeping with the boat theme...this is the replica HMS Bounty at the entrance of the Panama Canal. I took this pic in 1973.

Here's a bit of urban Colindale I can see from my bedroom



I've been told it was originally Dixon's (electrical) main office, who sadly no longer exist.

I'm so excited, I finally got a shot of these Red-lored parrots! They usually hang out in big flocks at the edge of forests, but there was a gang in town today. These two were perched on 300 year old tiles atop of the Orosi church.

They are lovely, Mags!

This is the view from near the front of the line waiting to climb up a ladder to explore the inside of a Lancaster WWII bomber, at the air show last weekend. Magic!

In case anyone thinks London's all urban these bullocks were in Mill Hill. Half of the area is like this.

In keeping with the peaceful pastoral theme of the last two photos - I passed this hump-backed Brahma/Zebu cross cow yesterday, on the way to town. The bulls of this breed are often used for rodeo riding. She's quite docile, and I love her ears! Perhaps a friend for your buddies, Sat?
