Wow, what a surprise! Not being overly active here, upon stopping by yet again, I find that one of my favourite photographers from earlier times has started posting again.
True to your style, new variations, new topics. Strange thing here is that man at the top looking out to this right...I wonder what he's caught his attention...
...but I know what's caught my attention here!
Jump for joy!

Grainy picture at high ISO, but I like the result. I especially like the bands of ceiling and floor at top and bottom, and the guys in blue who form a great focal point to lead us into the architectural scene.
A memory of Palmyra ... by grigand (19673)

With the pictures of Nepalese architecture before the earthquake, and now Palmyra before isis TE is becoming like a shrine for beauty lost. Perhaps lost, I should say, because there is still hope, always.
Great picture, wonderful shadows. The camel ride is perfectly placed.
have a fine weekend
Peeping of balconies by Graal (99162)

Tight composition, the intruding bit of church (I suppose) doesn't disturb. In fact I even think it's a plus here.
This type of scene always reminds me of "Rear Window", the Hitchcock movie. I always expect an intrigue to begin to develop... "Rear Balcony"...?

Great bl/w nature shot, with a poetic sense of minimalism to it. The only thing I'm not too crazy about is that bit of tree that creeps into the frame on the right and catches a lot of sunlight there.
truck passing the dirt roads by Gerrit (50748)

Een kleurrijke en vrolijke foto. De mensen op de truck reizen in moeilijke omstandigheden (zowel door de truck als door de weg), maar dat is geen reden om te mopperen, nu even toch niet... Zwaai, zwaai...
children of a lesser god by bostankorkulugu (42160)

Your note about the colourful mural makes the choice of bl/w (though in style, of course) a very bold one. Even if this one is one of the empty walls, I wonder how it would be in colour...then again, the picture in itself probably is stronger in bl/w. And the bl/w also fits in with the excellent title you picked.
Just enough sharpness & motion blur on the swinging child, and a careful composition does the rest. Great picture.
