Good morning....
Thank you for your continued support ....also a big thank you to Maureen (HarrietH) for her UA...much appreciated.
On Friday I spent a wonderful day in the company of our "green" Isabel (Chinga)...she took me to Holland park which had lots of green and we spent some time in the Japanese Kyoto garden. one of the most beautiful gardens I have been to.
Apologies for the big upload but so many images to share
You will notice the heron in V1 looking longingly at the Koi in V1
The last two versions are of Isabel
We are leaving London today for Marrakesh in Morocco...I have had a wonderful time here...great epz friends, nice restaurants and three theatre shows.
Have a nice dayGrinGrin

Excellent variety Colleen, V3 for me. You certainly are not skimping with your camera. Enjoy Marrakech, fascinating especially the night food market at Place Jemaa El Fna. (use high ISO setting and be careful, they can be verbally aggressive to image taking use a long lens)

What a wonderful looking place this is Colleen Smile A great set of images, thanks for sharing these - and your other London images - with us Smile
Enjoy Marrakech, there's lots to see and do, especially around Jemaa El Fna - but don't be getting ripped off by those snake-charmers, or lost in the maze of alleyways in the nearby Souks! Wink A visit to the Majorelle Gardens north west of the Medina is a must, it's only a couple of minutes walk from the hustle and bustle of the traffic, but is so peaceful Smile
