Well technically I uploaded these in May but just now annotated and up on Alamy for sale.

How new are those landmark, Michael? 

 

Hi Ed,  the art gallery opened in 1978, but just renovated in 2016, and the Lincoln Cottage was there during the mid 1800s but not sure when it became a museum open to the public.

How things have changed since this song was popular in 1920.

 

I'll be with you in apple blossom time 
I'll be with you to change your name to mine 
One day in May, I'll come and say 
Happy the bride that the sun shines on today 
What a wonderful wedding there will be 
What a wonderful day for you and me 
Church bells will chime 
You will be mine 
In apple blossom time

From my Vanuatu trip last week.

Mt Yasur volcano has been active non-stop for hundreds of years. In fact, since the Pleistocene.

The climb occurred at sunset to see the glowing lava lakes.

The last one was taken from a Cessna banking sharply. It's the only shot without either wing or wheel I've got.

Vanuatu is not different from other countries in that respect, everyone's on their cell phone!

Taken in May uploaded yesterday - I am really chuffed with this because it proves that there is still plenty out there not yet available on Stocks sites.  This is apparently a quite rare example of this type of building and it is in the city of Bath which I expected to have been photographed to death.  I have found other shots of the street/park where this is, but nobody apparently has submitted this actual sentry box before

I like this shot of my son doing some gardening:

And I didn't think this was too bad given as it's taken with a Sony RX100 and not an expensive macro lens

BTW - does anyone know what kind of bee this is? To me it's just a bumblebee.

Two from the annual Italian Day cultural festival on Commercial Drive in Vancouver, Canada.

I uploaded these via the new (for me) "reportage" route.
