I’ll post a few Gen. These are from a recent day trip to Gibraltar during a stay in Andalusia, Spain. Gibraltars status could be back in the news at the end of the month should the VOX party do well in the Spanish general election.

So sorry, you're right, I will shut up... I might post again tomorrow though... I have a question in fact.

No one else has posted any favourite upload...

 

 

NO! NO! Keep them coming. I was only joking.

 

Hopefully I will have some to post this week.

Alamy gets everywhere, even printing their name on the Gib footy shirts.😃

Actually thinking about it I seem to be seeing Alamy's name crop up in the credits on TV more and more these days.

Here's a few photos from Guildford raft race, which is a charity fundraising event. There was a peaceful Extinction Rebellion dirty water protest against Thames Water Company beside the river during the event.

Currently in Thailand so a few I like.  An older man on the street in Bangkok, Thailand, does a sign of the horns hand gesture, standard rock 'n' roll salute, rock fan hand gesture, devil horns or metal horns, “rock on” hand sign. (He has a free jelly sample in his other hand so seems cheerful about that).

If you got that close to the water you must have ended up in Nidd there😉

I'm Sorry, I Haven't a Clue. Nidd is a forfeit in the game of Mornington Crescent. A bit like going down a snake. It's never too  late.

Never heard of that game. I must have led a very sheltered life. OR a very boring one.

Manchester UK lesbian gay bisexual transgender or LGBT pride parade 2011 through the streets of central Manchester. A person wears a multi coloured wig next to a giant union jack flag teapot and union jack pennants. The parade theme that year evoked patriotic themes and symbols.

And here are the images miraculously saved from my flooded laptop.

They were part of a 4 day Outback event in a huge cattle station: horse races, rodeo, campdraft, elegance in the field (Ladies' Day), live music, bar. Fabulous atmosphere and fun.

 

This series is from the campdraft event held every day at dawn at 6.30am just before sunrise. As riders chase a heifer against a backdrop of fiery sky, the dust, horses' manes and tails and riders' hair are rim lighted. Such skillful riders, both jackaroos and jillaroos!

 

You might think 'is this what she made a fuss about?' but I like them. My kind of environment and atmosphere. What we liked about this event is that it is organised every year for 3 neighbouring cattle stations entertainment, not for tourists. The real Australia.

 

 

Amazing light and action Gen!

Thank you Steve. It got me up and about in the dark by temperatures not seen in years for me, I was wearing an anorak!! I HATE THE COLD! Only the promise of photography made me do it.

From "I'm sorry I have'nt a clue", a Radio 4 program, started just after Radio 4 took over from the Home Service... It can be patchy but when it's on form it's very good.

Are you like Kertész now...taking photos from your window? I like it. His were of Washington Park. I used to cat-sit in his building and they have one of his photos in the lobby.

We have a shopping center in Liverpool -- Liverpool One on three levels. I took that shot the other day, Paulette,  looking down from the second level to the first.

I like the ones where the cowboy hats are wearing those toddler boys. Smart hats.
