The geometric patterns of parallel and oblique lines, some creating squares and rectangles, the others creating triangles and rhombuses, are on full display with the beautifully sunlit scene. I like very much the way you have composed the shot, with the man just in front of the doorway.

Hello Takero san,
The young boy is very happy first, because he is able to wear this traditional costume and participate in the festival, and second, he is able stay up well past his bedtime. How can life be any better.

Hello dear Serghei,
This is the 7th anniversary of this excellent photo from Petra. I am very sad to see how much of the world has declined in the past 7 years, with the latest insanity in the Middle East and Europe, especially in the latest incidents of bombings and the shooting down of the Russian plane two days ago. The first week of December our friend Berni Franklin, orthopedic surgeon from Los Angeles, will be in New York.

This is beautifully composed shot, with the three individuals walking along the balustrade on the coast of Livorno. I know the site, from my own visits to Tuscany. the young woman is snuggling her mobile phone speaking to a close friend.

Whipped up by the wind, you had a most picturesque day, with the waves breaking on the pier. I see that the direction of the wind is from the right-to-left. On the distant shore the waves are not splashing at all. The bicycle rider is wise to keep a safe distance.
Learning about the world by mkamionka (33643)

You had a bird's eye view of the busy street scene in Madrid. Malgorzata, one of the busiest travelers/photographers at Trekearth has assessed the situation well. Unhappily, many people have left along with the old enthusiasm. I wonder if part of it is due to the general frustration and pessimism about the world in general. There is an insanity sweeping the world, it seems, with many of the world leaders playing leapfrog at the edge of the chasm!

This photo was posted exactly a month ago, and unhappily I had missed it. You had a beautiful day in October, with enough wind for the flag to wave majestically, and for the crowd to add scale and color to the building. Thank you for sharing this superb photo and the history of the White House.
During the summer of 1972, when Richard Nixon was the President, I was sitting at the spot where you took this photo. I was there to do a drawing, but in perusing my gallery of "architectural portraits," I just realized the drawing was never posted.
Warmest regards and Happy Thanksgiving,
