TRue, I just wondered if it was CV or somesuch. I needed to change the front diff on the Disco but couldn't face stripping back to the CVs to ease the drive shafts out.

I was always terrified of spring compressors on the range rover springs. The tension in those springs was enormous, they were +2" heavy duty springs and they took some compressing to get on and off. If they let go never mind the cat I'd worry about the wall.

I think we have lost the plot here, it was supposed to be about World Pentax Day, photos taken yes photos taken on World Pentax Day, you can still upload your photos taken on the Day.

Losing the plot is always fun but Dr Mhuni has us back on track with a good shot. I'd have cropped the trees at the top off but that's my very black and white approach to things. Here I'm taking a picture of a wall so those trees can shove off!

I tried this but decided it lost something by cropping the trees off. I like the juxtaposition of different vegetation, and the light on the greenery (as elsewhere) is really nice. Still, not sure I'm entirely happy with the shot - though it was shot on Pentax day which is why it's here.
