Thanks. I see a lot of good mornings when coming in to work, I hardly ever take a picture though.

Always question all authorities because the authority you don't question is the most dangerous... except me, never question me.

A beautiful autumn day in Seaham on the north east cost of England about 90 miles north of where I live.

Crikey! That fourth image are my lower dentures I lost in 1986! :o

This is one of my three websites http://portraitsofalpineplants.com/ All photos taken by me unless otherwise stated.
I have a Nikon D90 camera with various lenses, a bit dated I know!

I like your photos Tank. What camera system do you have mate?

Those were a Fujifilm X30.

Main camera is a Sony A68 and various lenses.

That's a really cool sculpture. Looks like formed sheet metal stitched together.

That looks like a shark's vertebrae. I used to have a necklace like that when I was little.

I had a D90 before my current (now oldish) D600. The D90 was a nice camera, except for its high ISO noise in low light scenes. The next one is probably going to be a mirrorless camera.

It is. Details can be found in the link at the bottom of the post.

It's also a good photo.
I like the patina that COR-TEN steel develops when exposed to the elements. I've seen it used quite a bit recently in local buildings, even in domestic projects, which makes sense from a maintenance point of view.

I took this close-up photo this morning. Can anyone guess what it is?



The lighting isn't very good - just window light without flash. No lens hood, so the contrast could have been better.

Is it some sort of cake or bun?

It is something many of us eat every day, but smaller than a bun.
