@raynev1Sailing: v.i. Slowly going nowhere in a cold shower tearing up $20 bills. 

But yes, the whole family enjoyed it.  My son was the youngest in Canada to ever get a restricted marine radio operator's permit.  Unfortunately, we belonged to a self-help club, and that bottom that had to be painted every year was getting to be too large, so we eventually sold it.  Hung a four seasons sun room on the house with the proceeds.

What a great view. I recently visited the DPRK, or more commonly know as North Korea, this February. It has taken me a while to put all my photos together. Here are just a few that i took from my trip, i am thinking about uploading them all to some place, when i do i will drop the link as there are loads of architecture shots i took with the community here in mind.

More Skyline shots showing some of the development in Pyongyang

Even more skyline. The large building in the distance is the Yanggakdo International Hotel. We were originally meant to stay there but we were told it was closed. We did have some dinner in the revolving restaurant. It has a bowling alley and a casino in the basement. I also bought a 1.1L bottle of Czech Vodka for 14 euros. The hotel we stayed in also had a revolving restaurant.

The Arch of Triumph at night, i did visit it the day before. I have never seen the one in Paris so i can't really compare.

The Monument to the founding of the Workers' Party of Korea.

The entrance arch to the Victorious Fatherland Liberation War Museum in Pyongyang. Unfortunately we couldn't take any images while inside. But i have some of the outside including the captured US military equipment. As follows

I hope that it wasn't too many images.

I didn't really notice it while i was there but it was also very cold, below 0 degrees Celsius daily and i guess that would allow for smog despite the relatively small number of cars. Surprisingly while in Beijing it was fantastic, if not also very cold. I was worried with my asthma, but no notable difference in my breathing to where i live in the UK.

  • I'm guessing some time after 9?  Or very early morning.


    Here's something you don't see every day - a pair of Canadian National locomotives which made their way down to Tampa Florida last month.  I chased this one into the night, and it wound up stopping just outside of the port entrance, beyond which absolutely no photography is allowed.  Talk about luck!

    Been such a busy few months with work and life! I have started playing SC4 again and have some new content to showcase in the coming weeks. 

    In the meantime, I was 30th on August 12th so my partner and I went to New York to celebrate. He proposed as while there....so double celebration :D

    Here's a few snaps

    Roseville isn't quite known for a lot of things aside from a mini-golf course with a waterpark, some shopping, or the chance for trainspotting at the junction yard. One of it's hidden treasures is the types of cars you may see if you look close enough. This is a small selection of cars I have taken photos of with my phone.

    Great pictures everyone! 

    I haven't gone anywhere special, all these pictures are within a couple miles of my house. I've got more pictures on my flicker if you're interested enough: https://www.flickr.com/photos/47757922@N06/

    Hope other people most more of their photography, this thread has slowed down too much. ;)

    I am by no means a photographer but I do enjoy taking pictures on my travels. It's all on my phone camera so it's nothing impressive, the sights are though!

     

    view of Coit Tower- San Francisco

    Here's a random townhouse that I thought looked nice. It looked very Belle Epoque to me

    Norway is very pretty.  If I had the means I'd like to visit it someday.  I saw some scenery like that when I played Geoguesser.
