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?

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.

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?])

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.

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!

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.
