Please note: I HAVE ALREADY SIGNED THE PETITION!! DEAR PANO FRIENDS, IT'S WITH A LOT OF SADNESS, I HAVE DECIDED NOT TO CROSS OVER TO VIEWS, AND TO SAY GOODBYE TO PANORAMIO. I WILL LEAVE MY PRESENT IMAGES UP ON G/EARTH UNTIL THE DEATH OF PANO. I BELIEVE NOTHING WE CAN DO WILL SAVE PANO. THE ARGUMENTS PUT FORWARD BY GOOGLE HONCHOS ABOUT NEW TECH AND SYSTEMS ARE SADLY LEGIT AND PRETTY MUCH IRREFUTABLE. THE KILLER IS THAT THEY ARE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF RUNNING A PHOTOGRAPHY SITE. BECAUSE MY 'OTHER LIFE' HAS BECOME EVER BUSIER, I'VE DECIDED IT'S TIME TO MOVE ON. SUCH IS LIFE. LIKE SO MANY OF MY PANO FRIENDS, I HAVE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY ON PHOTO GEAR FOR PANO (JUST PURCHASED A NEW $800 LENS). I CAN NOW NOT JUSTIFY THAT. MAYBE I WILL LOOK AT OTHER PHOTOGRAPHY SITES. FOR MANY OF US, THAT WILL BE A BETTER OPTION THAN 'VIEWS', AND BEING SWAMPED BY SECOND-RATE IMAGES. LOVE TO YOU ALL, THANK YOU FOR YOUR KINDNESSES, AND BEST OF LUCK TO YOU, JOCK.

Thank you very much, Timek

Hello Roger and Jock ... apparently, in OZ, some things are hard to resist: lighthouses, red light districts, and salacious puns ... Y'all have a great day, Wally

Greetings and best wishes, Pa.

Like 76...splendido scatto!

Magnificent piece of kit! I remember a great line-up of traction engines in one edition of the 'Allo Allo' series. A real treat. I suppose being a good Christian fellow you wouldn't have watched that series Richard. Bit naughty it is :-))) But top Brit comedy in the old style.

Traction engines are very thin on the ground around these parts. :(

A great little tank loco. We didn't get many with internal Stephenson drives on the west side of Oz. Quite a few over t'other side tho..

You talka my language here Richard. Steam.. and a 50's look to the shot! Lk of course!

Extra dreamy.. with those perfect reflections.. Very fine work!

Canal life seems great up your end of the globe Richard. The push-bike thing is novel! Lk this!
