A shot from 10 months ago, and a general weathercast for SÃO PAULO in December. Superb composition revealing the beauty of Brazil. The colors and depth-of-field are excellent. Have a good weekend.

Ciao caro Carlo,
First I thought this was an action shot, the helicopter (Bell 1?) about to take off or land. But then I noticed the drooping stationary wings. I see the posts holding it up, hidden by the bushes. Excellent optical illusion. Have a good Sunday,

The areal view of the Tell-Aviv-University shows a huge growth since I visited in the late 70s. I will look at the ws version also. You must have had a ball exploring the area with a pigeon's eye view.

Hello Takero San,
Your photos more than those of anyone else brings a smile to my face and genuine admiration for your photographic skills. This photo of boys being boys shows the enthusiasm and exuberance in each face. The lanterns they hold in their hands are eye-catching additions.
Warm regards, and have a good Sunday,

Superb shot of the painter plying his skills, making a copy of the painting on the left. Did you ever figure out whose work this is? Even if this man is a restorer, I think this still belongs in the theme Pictures at an Exhibition II.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend,

It has been a year since you posted this photo, and I don't see any more from entries from you. I hope you will end your sabbatical and return. Valetta, the city on the mighty rock of Malta has many hills, and here with a long lens, you appear to have compressed "a dip" in one of the undulating hills and valleys. I see that it is also a one-way street, as it would not allow for sizeable cars to pass each other.

That was the night of the lunar eclipse. It appears that you had cloudy skies, since you are not pointing your camera at the moon. John Cannon (Tyro) had a superb collection of the sequence of moon shots, that I put into the group theme, The Moon....
