I mentioned in the good morning thread I'd post a pic of the Sooke River. 



We saw a few nearly dead salmon but the water is pretty low.



Anybody else want to post a current photo of a view in your neighbourhood?



bubbalouie - Posted - 10/12/2019:  13:12:39


Here's another one looking up at the bank. These are shots from my point & shoot camera.



Most everyone has a camera on their phones right? They don't have to be fancy shots.

If there's a camera on my phone [2nd. pic], I've yet to  figure out how to use it???   Here's one from my back deck this a.m.

We painted and patched the gables on the old house last week. The boss made me build and hang some new window boxes. Some new attic windows and Im ready for winter.

Looks like SOMEBODY neglected to properly SERVICE and STORE my snow blower, since last March!
The weeds growing up through it, are taller than am I.

The finished job looks great RonR!

What about you boys from down under?! There must be some deadly critter passing through your backyards. smiley

From my balcony , in the distance you can see the tops of a couple of the downtown skryskrapers (sic). Not sure if that's a spruce or a fir tree,, don't know the western trees yet (then again it might be an illegal alien [is that allowed on this august forum?])

Deadly critter

Bruce,, do you have a horror fixation? ;-)

yeoldbanjoguy - Posted - 10/12/2019:  16:46:54


Maybe a little..... kinda boring around here

chuckv97 - Posted - 10/12/2019:  16:49:29


Remind me to phone first before getting near western PA....

Banjo Lefty - Posted - 10/12/2019:  17:51:29


You guys want horror? I'll show you horror . . . Here's my immediate neighbourhood on Oct. 11th (!!! over two weeks until Hallowe'en, this is absurd).

Family lunch at Brindabella Hills Winery for Li Wei's (my wife; pron. Leeway) birthday. We then had a surprise party in the afternoon to welcome home a mate who spent 150 days riding his Jones bicycle from Canberra to Cooktown and back over mostly gravel roads (a little over 5500kms/3450miles).



No deadly critters in our backyard (very good 2.1m high colorbond fencing to keep out cats - I like native birds), but certainly the brown snakes are out and about. Saw one on the bike track last week and there's probably a dozen within a few hundred metres of home in the nearby bushland. Every snake I ever met just wanted to get away.



Photos are of the lunch venue.



P.S. My 12 year old flip phone does have a camera, however...

These are great folks! Keep them rolling! It's nice to have a window into all these different parts of the world.



We can leave the real photography to the guys with the training & the fancy cameras like Jan from Sweden.



I love his daily Good Morning thread but wouldn't think of adding one of my blurry photos.

Missed this post yesterday, but this is off my back deck this morning. Tried to catch the Whitetail doe and her fawn, but I spooked them before I got the shot.



 

bubbalouie - Posted - 10/13/2019:  07:53:34


I tried to get a pic of an American dipper (one of my favorite birds) at the river yesterday.



It flew off as soon as I reached for my camera! 



I saw a father & son on their way down there with lenses on their cameras 2 feet long!

Day trip to New Jersey. Flower farm and Avon by the Sea




bubbalouie - Posted - 10/13/2019:  08:45:56


I think it's cool for you guys that live in the eastern States. You can just pop over to a neighbouring state on a day trip!



I live close to Washington state but need a passport to visit the U.S. It's a big drive to Alberta from here or anywhere else in this province.



My theory about the way the U.S. is laid out is that when people started moving over from the Old Country they started to divide it up the same way as back home with a lot of the same names.



They cut it up into small states like the counties back home. As the area started to fill up  & they had to move south & westward they realized Whoa!! this place is really big! We better start making these states bigger or we are gonna run out of names or start making them up!

They should have just used Google Earth.

One place, three perspectives. My home landscape. Here is the bank and ditch of an iron-age hill fort about a mile from where we live. And the view from that fort across the North Somerset levels. And one taken down on the levels at the foot of the hill.

Hey, Bob, same for Canada! Check out the size of the provinces way back at the start of Confederation.

Yeah Buddy! there is gold in there for sure!! There's a claim for sale right there but from what I & others have seen it's all played out. If you go a few miles upstream (That's looking down) you'd have some luck for sure!

Cat looking at the wall



 

Owen - Posted - 10/14/2019:  09:10:25


...but, is he/she/it cognizant that it's a wall??

bubbalouie - Posted - 10/14/2019:  09:10:28


Frisco Fred It's funny all the places that have the name Moscow attached.
I had a friend with a farm i used to visit in Moscow Ontario.
The war of 1812 figures prominently in my hometown.

Locals know who's who by how they pronounce the word, Moscow.  Without letting the cat out of the bag, (where did that come from?) locally it's known as Moss- co.   

Owen - Posted - 10/14/2019:  09:34:40


....three guesses, and the first two don't count.... what's outta place in this pic? 



[FWIW, the robins have arrived at the ornamental crabappples in the back yard... sumpthin' tells me winter must be on it's way.]



Edit: Nah, bubba.... that's a handwheel (?) from a wheelchair... "illegally" salvaged from the local dump... my wife uses them [and bicycle rims, and etc.] to support flowers and shrubs.

The reference of Moscow & Napoleon above reminded me of the "Cup & saucer house" in Cape Vincent N.Y.



I have been there. It was built for Mr. Bonaparte but he never moved there.

Persimmons are plentiful and sweet. The black walnuts are large and also plentiful. Your grandma said hedge apples (Osage Orange) keeps spiders away; scientific tests say no. Who ya gonna believe on that?

Couple of local shots, Had to wait for the sun to show its face.

On Saturday we drove the Perth Area Studio Tour, where, at one stop, we purchased a painting by Gary Barr (who also happens to play bass in a Bluegrass band). On yesterday's trip to pick up the painting, he reminded us to check out the camera obscura. So we hiked across the back fields to find it - a room-sized contraption with a small hole in one wall (where the eye is), and a big disc wheel that, when the Mrs. turned it, rotated the whole structure. So we got a panoramic upside-down view of the field.



Photo 1: The Mrs. heading to the camera.

Photo 2: The eye (pinhole on a pinhole camera). Note the landscape painted on the wall - upside down. The room is well off the ground due to the rotation mechanism.

Photo 3: The image on the inside wall

Photo 4: The image as the room is rotating.
