    I like Drizzt's Cool pictures from around the world concept. I'd like to throw out another interesting request. I'd like everyone to post a picture from their front door, looking out. Just stand at your front door with your camera and shoot. I think it will be interesting to see what each member sees through their eyes each day as they leave their home, condo, etc. Here's mine.

    Do you live inside or outside the new 'Driving' zone? I'm curious how everyone likes it? I'm also curious what tricks everyone has come up with to beat the system or at least make it work for them.

    I live, for the most part well outside of the congestion charging zone, in Virginia Water, Surrey. The home pictured, in Belgravia is also ouside the zone, but only slightly, and they are planning to extend it to cover that area as well.

    I don't think anyone likes it, except real environmentalists, it is very stupid, and it has just made more traffic on the inner ring road, traffic in mayfair, soho, and the city is still the same.

    There really are no tricks except two, the best way is to have your car registered with a home inside the zone so that you do not have to pay, or walk, taxi, tube etc. but that is still going to cost you, and in the case of a taxi well over a fiver.

    Here's a shot off my balcony, with the camera I picked up today, a Nikon Coolpix 5400. We'll see how it works out.

    This is a shot from the golf course on Easter Sunday, not relevent, but nice. By the way, shot an 83, not bad for wet, and not playing since August.
