  • Last time I took photos out of my apartment window, the neighbors called the cops on me thinking I was a pervert! At least the cops that came over were two hot chics.

    YAY!

    I missed the opportunity to include the police tape, number plates marking off evidence and the camera crews. Sowwy - this will have to do.

  • lovely scene, chris.. do you have a canoe or a skiff to use in that water?

    aaand.. oh franco! i think i lived there.. that looks so much like the street outside one of the apartments my "pimps" rented for me. egads; i never got any sleep between the screaming and the sirens. do you ever adjust?


    these pics are recent.. we had a dump of snow last week, and then it rained, and ... back to the normal warm and damp.

    2 of my cats, wishing i'd make the snow go away

    or.. adding http:// would have been good. i'm smarter than i look; slower, too. grrrr
  • wow, mick - that's the view I'm after. Makes me miss the Canadian landscape even more! And no, I never adjust to the 'vibe' around here, though granted - we live in a particularly rough bit that I have named 'the vortex of hell'. ;)
  • this pic was shot while the hurricane kyrill was visiting us .. scary, huh?

    (thanks for fixing the upload thingie! looks a bit strange on ie7 tho. but then ... who cares ;))

    long exposure night shots rock!
  • michael... that's a cool pic. the trees are lit by...?

    ha! @ chicken.. wildebeests! :D the cats ARE beasts, and the deer ARE wild, so you're (to quote you) spot on. it looks like you've got the beginnings of a hanging garden down there.

    ihc.. are there gardens in the back of the houses?

    ihc.. are there gardens in the back of the houses?


    tiny gardens to the rear yes but only for the downstairs. Each house in our street is a maisonette affair - we are in the upstairs flat and we have a balcony that projects over the backgarden.

    before that sounds too bleak for you - immediately behind the backgarden of our house is an allottment where we have a plot to grow our own food.

    the massive block of flats naturally has no amenity space at all - we do have a ginormous park just down the road which is supposed to cover that.

  • actually, it sounds pretty cool. high-density housing WITH allottment gardens and a huge park very close. :)
  • our 'hood - as you stalker bastards already know

  • ty franco:smile:

    both shots were taken around 10-15 minutes apart,during the same sunset.
  • Nice pic, good contrast in hue as the colours are perfectly complimentary.
  • this one is slightly cheating, but you can see a bedroom window in the photo (just) :D

  • Have to resurrect this thread as I couldn't resist posting the latest incident. Not sure who started it - insurance job? kids? neighbour dispute? But the fire was big enough to completely blacken out the sky within about 1 minute - enormous roaring flames - and as it's next door, not sure how much longer it would have been before our house caught flame. Very scary.

    From wikipedia:
    "Reigate appears in Domesday Book in 1086 as Cherchefelle which appears to mean 'the open space by the hill'. (The name has nothing to do with the church and the element Cherche is a later corruption). It was held by William the Conqueror as successor to king Harold's widow Editha. Its Domesday assets were: 34 hides. It had 2 mills worth 11s 10s, 29 ploughs, 12 acres (49,000 m2) of meadow, pannage and herbage worth 183 hogs. It rendered £40."

    Reigate is the birthplace of Margot Fonteyn and Norman Cook (Fatboy Slim)
