Can somebody help me with the model? There will be more.

Since we've got such exotic locations this month, here's one from up on the hill behind my village.

Why can't a dog enjoy a waterfall?

More efforts to include people... They're not doing much, but that's people...

I struggle with including people as well but I believe it is worth the effort

Drinks at Florian's, San Marco, Venice. Great theatre, but bring your best-behaved credit card.

Via Garibaldi. We were just having a nice quiet spritz Select when one of those wretched cruise barges sailed past. Grr.

The following week one of them squashed a river boat on the Giudecca.

Spring is always a good time to photograph leaves before they become all ratty with fungus and insect damage in summer. The light is not on the leaf in this image but going through the leaf from behind. Similar to a stained glass window.

I would agree it is not an Austin Healy. I had a Austen Healy 3000 in the early 1960's and it had a jump seat behind the front seats. Your example does not have the jump seat.

Your XK  example was replaced later by the XKE so you should maybe consider XKD?

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

Expect a thousand shots by the end of the month! sometimes it pays to be quiet.

Thanks, Wim and I sorted this out some days ago by looking at the 1000 Miglia starter list.
