Epi and I took a longish walk on Sunday in a loop around Mill Hill and Totteridge. We’re a bit stiff this morning because it’s a long time since we did an 8 mile walk 😉 It included a visit to a garden centre which allowed me to capture a couple of close-up’s for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge.

I also found some bracken that was just unfurling its leaves…

…and I may even already have a shot for next week’s CMMC 🙂

Busy weekend so I’m posting my entry for Cee’s Midweek Madness Challenge on the last day once more. I actually took the photos for this one last Friday, so at least they are totally new.

This first shot was difficult because of surface reflections and muck, but here is a Tadpole (actually there are several) and some Algae in a pond at Long Lane Pasture…

Somewhat easier to photograph was this Crate…

…Of course, it counts for Blue too and if you look at the centre panel you can see a stylised E and below that the words ‘Property of Express Dairy’.

Then there’s Long Lane Cafe…

To close out the set we have a One-Four-Three bus belonging to Metroline…

…Whilst it’s not obvious to the non-enthusiast, I can tell you that the vehicle type is an Enviro 200, made by Alexander-Dennis.

Taking possible subjects from Cee’s photo this week’s Midweek Madness Challenge, lets start with wagons. I can’t tell for certain if the one in the photo is a grain or bulk powder car, so I’ve picked a shot of Cement wagons…

…passing through Acton. These are empties that, having delivered a load for London’s construction industry, are on their way back to Hope in Derbyshire for their next load.

Ladders – Finchley’s Green Watch demonstrate using a ladder for a rescue at the annual station open day…

Finally, taking the slogan ‘we will deliver’ I remembered this truck…

… belonging to Stand & Deliver and appropriately carrying a Highwayman logo 😉
