This Morning Along the Canal


Sort of a redux of This Evening Along the Canal.
Gloomy and foggy in spots instead of a golden evening sun.

We Remember....


...but we do not learn. World War 1, or what much of the world calls "The Great War", started 100 years ago this past summer and ended 96 years ago Tuesday (The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month). Today is Remembrance Sunday and many locales in the United Kingdom have solemn ceremonies, people wear red poppies and lay wreaths at memorials honoring those lost in the war.

University Parks


This morning's walk was a little damp and drizzly. I wandered through Oxford University Parks instead of a trek along the canal which would have been very muddy. Even though fall is very much here, a number of things were still blooming.

Shots From The Air, Part 3 - "Night Skies"


And then the red eye...

When the flight attendant woke me to tell me to close my window so when the sun came up it wouldn't wake people, I looked out and took the last three photos. It was an amazing light show that lasted quite a while. I struggled to get decent photos through an airplane window without a tripod etc. but these three sort of came out well enough to get the idea.

Shots From The Air, Part 1 - "Islands"


Did some traveling over the past month...after getting a wonderful view of San Francisco and the Golden Gate during landing without access to my camera, I endeavored to have my camera on my lap for a couple of my other flights. Here are the results.

Canal Birds


Birds in England chirp a lot...but I generally don't see them, I hear them. Here are a few I saw yesterday, they weren't chirping.
