Hitting Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge a bit earlier this week as Wingate & Finchley have a long away trip tomorrow and then I’ll have the match photos to sort out afterwards.

Bearing in mind that Cee was thinking of summertime and colorful photos, I’m digging in the back catalogue to find something suitable. Here’s an October shot of some trees on Hampstead Heath…

Clouds were part of Cee’s offering, so here’s some of mine – Kew Gardens with an Airbus A380 in April…

…Got some shrubs and small evergreen trees in there too. Or, if you prefer, there’s some late evening clouds and blue sky over Marbella in December…

Aeroplanes can be found in the clouds – this Bae 146 painted in blue and white, is company demonstrator G-SSHH…

…Photographed at Hatfield in July 1982 – a summer shot at last 😉

Finally a current shot, taken last week – Blue sky, a large Buddleia bush and three Sparrows catching the early morning rays in a bid to get warm after a frosty night…

For Brian’s Last on the Card challenge this month we have a juvenile Herring Gull…

…It had been playing with the water bottle on the path but as we approached it stepped back behind the rope fence. It then started pulling at the rope, so I took some shots of it playing. This was the last one and I think we’d both had enough of the game by then – I was probably already mentally taking the camera away from my eye as it has camera shake 😉 Taken at Kew Gardens with the Fujifilm X-Pro2 on 21/09

Last shot on the Canon 5D mkIII was taken at Bromley FC’s ground where we had just completed a 5-3 win over Cray Wanderers. It shows a group of our players approaching the fans…

…Shared congratulations is good for morale 🙂 Photo taken 29/09.

Missed out on taking part in CMMC recently – blame the Wyoming release in American Truck Simulator. At least there’s a O in the middle of Wyoming 😉

Lets start with a herb – a very poisonous herb…

…Monkshood (Aconitum napellus). The root can be boiled and made into a tincture for external use to combat joint pain. Otherwise, it’s just a pretty garden flower but wash your hands carefully after handling it!

Football – Here are some members of our Youth academy watching a 1st Team match…

Here’s a tree in miniature…

…An example of Bonsai

Finally, sitting on my fence and hoping for more food…

…A Wood Pigeon.

All the photographs in this post were taken over the past week 🙂
