Monday Photo Shoot.

Your Monday Photo Shoot: In Flight

We've got some fine, summery skies here these last few days, which inspired this week's Photo Shoot:

Your Monday Photo Shoot: Capture something in flight. Birds, insects, planes, bats, whatever -- if it's getting around in the skies, it's fair game for this photo shoot.

Here's mine, a bi-plane over Brighton during the London to Brighton Veteran Car Rally and a heron taking off in a bayou just outside New Orleans.

Photos of China.

These are a little late in being posted. As all of you who read my other journal know I visited China in November/December last year. It was very cold, below freezing in fact, but very beautiful. I went to Shanghai, Beijing and Xian. We visited the Great Wall of China, the Terracotta Army, saw a performance at the Peking opera, visited the Summer Palace, Tiannemen Square, the Wild Goose Pagoda, the Temple of Heaven, the Ming Tombs and more Buddhist temples than you could shake a stick at!
I've added some photos above. I took over 1,500 but I'll let you off seeing all of them!
I hope you like the selection I picked out to show you, I'm surprised AOL would download them, so many of you have been having trouble getting the pics on journals recently.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #93

Photo Scavenger Hunt #93

Photo Scavenger Hunt #93 will be due on Sunday. October 22, at 11:00 PM EST.

The subject this week is:
  "broken, torn, or run-down"

To play take some photos of the given subject and leave a link to your entry at Val's journal. Val has very kindly been looking after the Photo Hunt since Krissy has been spending her time looking after John.
I had to have a forage through my old entries for this subject. I only seem to take pics of nice looking things.... pretty coloured trees, cats and scenery. I found a few run down things though!
The first is the West Pier, the only Grade 1 listed pier in the country which took a severe battering from storms and arson attacks leaving it fit only as a roost for gulls and other birds.
The second is a pair of old petrol (gas) pumps that I found at Stanmer Park this summer. They were part of the museum exhibits. I vaguely remember pumps like these, just shows how old I'm getting!

Next is an old tractor I saw at Morse Maple Syrup Farm in Vermont last year, I definitely remember seeing farmhands out on these when I was young!
Last is a very old plough also at the maple syrup farm. These old farm tools are quite a work of art!
Have a good week!

Photo Scavenger Hunt #92.


Photo Scavenger Hunt #92 will be due on Sunday. October 15, at 11:00 PM EST.

The subject this week is:
  "Trees, leaves, and anything changing!"

It's time for the Photo Scavenger Hunt hosted by Val who's looking after it till Krissy is ready to take it back.
I'm putting on some more photos of New England this week ( Just how many did I take?! )
The fall colours are absolutely exquisite there, it really is better in real life than any publicity photos. So, with no more ado here's my entry.

Photo Scavenger Hunt #91

 It's photo scavenger hunt time again.

This weeks subject is Sunsets and sunrises or the sky in general. I don't get to see the sunrise but as my flat faces west I do get a great view of the sun setting. Just lately we've had the tail end of a few tropical storms which produce great clouds that make the sunset good viewing.
Thesae are my selection for the hunt this week, hope you like them!
Thank you Donna for the appropiate signature tag!

Photo Scavenger Hunt #90


Photo Scavenger Hunt #90 will be due on Sunday, October 1, at 11:00 PM EST.

The subject this week is:

Interpret this any way you like and have fun!

Oh! This one's easy! I just have to go back to my New England pics for this! It was great sharing fall with the people up in New England last year, such a wonderful place with spectacular scenery. Riding up mountains in cable cars, going to the top of the Olympic ski jump in a chair lift, visiting maple syrup farms, whale watching off Cape Cod! It was all such fun and I came home with lots of pics and memories.
Here are a few of the photos I've picked to share with you.












The third one was taken at Dollywood the year before last but I thought I'd include it as it was the fall when I was there and I love pumpkins too!
