Sunday Selection

River always does a Sunday Selection with photos she has taken and not used, but with her online photo storage issues, I don't know if it will appear today. Ah, her post did appear.

A green flying thing on our balcony. No idea what it is. The new camera automatically chose macro when I was taking the photo.

 Cards done and dusted and cards from friends have begun to arrive.

 What was this bloke doing with an Australian flag and some kind of device below it.

 It wasn't Australia Day, if that is what you are wondering.

 As I was about to step inside from the balcony, I thought, that view might look ok in a photo.

For years window cleaners have complained  about the system on top of the building that they connect up to to before abseiling down the side of the building, cleaning windows as they go. This device has now been installed on part of the building. It is a track so that they can move sideways while they are suspended. It looks a little too light weight for my taste.

  1. I'm so glad you've joined us for Sunday Selections.
    That green bug looks similar to ones that have been getting inside my flat somehow. Always only one at a time and when the lights are out I hear it make a click sound as it jumps. So then I get up and smack it with my slipper for disturbing my sleep.
    The view of your room from the balcony does look nice.

    1. River, I did do one earlier. While the bug is green, it does not look so different to a click beetle. Never bothered us inside.

    Good post.
    1. The bug as River says should be immediately sent to the "bugs Happy Hunting Grounds", wherever that may be??
    2. Shade of Hyacinth Bucket in Keeping up Appearances - the smartly addressed red envelopes.Indeed impressive, did you like Hyacinth use a ruler??? ha ha.
    3. The flag jockey: Well he may be extra patriotic???
    4. Inside your place, very smart indeed.

    Now in between the heat, I must rest to prepare myself for Audrey fforbes-Hamilton.
    Most of her male, if not all co-stars, I think are dead???? Maybe the co-star of "To the Manor Born, Peter Bowles, who plays that wretched Czech greengrocer, Richard DeVere, may still be on planet Earth????

    1. Colin, I don't use a ruler for stamps, but I keep a keen eye. Brabinger is dead, but I reckon Bowles is still alive. Do you the Irish RM, which he starred in?

  3. yes the balcony view of the living room is inviting, and that little bug sure can fly.
    The window-washer thingy does not look sturdy enough to me. I hope they get danger money, but their insurance probably causes your body corp rate to skyrocket. Flagman remains a mystery.

    I have a moth photo I want to put up but AOD blog won't load, and it won't let Coppy comment. i despair.

    1. Ann, that Coppy can't comment is not our doing. Some porn site has locked her out from blog comments. She can't comment on mine either.

      I so much want to see a photo of your moth. I am a versatile kind of guy.

    Your living room: banal. Visual musak.

    Souless. Poor taste.

    1. I heard on the radio today Fen, that they are in plague proportions, but quite harmless.
