Big thanks to Gaucho

Great day with great company as usual and the out of character weather was marvellous 8O

I will not be carrying that bloody telephoto that never left the bag on the next one :roll:

Took a few but snaps but its been awhile and I'm out of practice with both camera and getting my eye in. Anyway a few of my better efforts, not that they are any good just the best of a bad bunch :oops:

Ok found out the problem with my resize, I thought they were 800x534 as this is what Photobucket shows as the default in the editor, when in actual fact they were 1024 wide, so re-cropped to 800 wide and they now come up in full frame

Nice pics OJ.

Thanks to Guacho for organising the Crosshill wander. I think that was the best weather we have had on a walk for a while. As always, great company, interesting chat and something new (my first time inside a boxing gym).

Here are a few photos from the walk (you can see the rest if you follow the link to my flickr page):

Anyone know where this fountain came from? It's near Waddell Court in the Gorbals by the river. Dated 1996, but I suspect that's a later addition
