Here is a close-up of yesterday's pond complete with alligators. There's momma in the top left corner and a baby on each side.

Copago, what are the 2 dark items floating in your water pond? Crocodiles?




haha oh god no It's actually the top of the bank of the tank - there is another one right next to this one and when we had that one dug we had to keep some in between to stop the next one draining.

But onto ClarsSue's alligators .. a pond like that would have people around it have a picnic here .. I'm going to guess that doensn't happen for you?

Guess who had her baby? Hindu! And about time too - we've been waiting ages for him to arrive. Took this tonight at two days old. Problem is that Hindu has mastisis and won't feed him so we've come to an parenting partnership LOL I bottle feed him and she does every thing else. He's going well.

This was so nearly the perfect shot of the last flight of Concorde!


I was just too slow.

Aww, those baby alligators are kinda cute, ClaraSue. I'm not sure I'd want to picnic so close, though.
Beautiful lighting on your Devon shot, Martin. Too bad about the Concorde! The joys of digital and lag between click/shutter. :/
Awww at mini-Hindu, so cute! He still looks a bit wobbly on his legs.
Zorba, I love love love those colours! So bright, and yet so natural looking.

I've no idea what this flower is. It's the first bloom on that bush, this season. It's covered in tiny sugar-like sparkles.

Untouched, uncropped

Mags. The Concorde shot was taken with an old SLR camera with a FILM in it. Remember those? lol I scanned it earlier along with a few others. (No doubt I'll use some of those later.)

(Editted cuz I can't spell.)

This is Euston Tower, once home of Capital Radio and possibly still TV studios where I was seen in the audience in 1974, with another brand new (to me anyway) tower next to it. Taken from the parallel road, Outer Circle in Regents Park.

This is a picturesque little village about 25 miles from me which is called Castle Combe. Its main claim-to-fame is that some of the 1960s film version of 'Doctor Dolittle' was filmed here. There's also a motor racing circuit nearby where I spend many an afternoon with my parents when I was younger. Happy days!

Oh I love Castle Combe, Martin, thanks for that. We used to go there too when I lived in Gloucester. Still do when I come back to visit. Lovely place.

We used to live not far from Castle Combe, too. Good to see it's still as pictureseque as ever.

This is the flyover at Staples Corner on the North Circular Road in Cricklewood, looking east to Hendon and Golders Green on the right.

I'm glad to have brought back memories, Mags and Ren. Here's a shot of the Market Cross where the weekly market used to be held. A shame the cars spoil the view of the buildings.



(The steps in the bottom left corner were for horse riders to mount and dismount.)

Pretty tree, Jane. I like the blue and white theme.
I was so mad at myself today, I could have spit! I'd charged up my batteries, packed my camera bag and headed into Cartago for a few hours shooting. (The 40min trip took an hour and a half, don't even ask!) I finally got there, and oooo, saw a beautiful window with gorgeous filigree work over it. What a great photo! Took out the camera, found a good perspective, shot... no, didn't shoot, as the monitor was telling me 'No memory card present'. Arghhhhh, had left the card in the reader at home! Arghhhhh!

So here's a shot taken a few months ago, instead.

As I was leaving my neighbour's house after a visit, I noticed this shadow just as I went to open the gate.

Oh, Mags! How annoying that must have been. I like the picture of the gate and its shadow, though

Here we have finally had a bit of snow! There is supposed to be quite a bit more on the way overnight, so perhaps by tomorrow I won't be so excited about it.

Usually putting one of these things up (and this year there are three in here, no less ) gets me at least a little Rudolph-ish. But, not so much this year. Can't seem to get into the 'spirit' of it all just yet, for some reason. But the tree came out pretty good, I reckon. It'll probably grow on me as the days travel ...
I'm pretty sure, too, that this indicates the most crowded corner in Ohio, at the moment.

Even the most ordinary roads (in Cricklewood here) look better from above, or half way up a bridge in this case.

I was 16 and had just gotten my first 35mm camera when I took this Kodachrome closeup of our 1962 Christmas tree.
