Salut Nicole. La prochaine double figure sera 22- une autre myriade de photos fidèles à l'esprit de la Bretagne. J'aime la composition dans cette image avec la forte présence de la mer, le vieux bateau au centre et les bâtiments charmants comme toile de fond. Amicalement. Klaudio.

Ciao Luciano. Si può sicuramente sentire la forza della natura qui, i suoi stati d'animo e moto perpetuo, mentre le stagioni vengono e vanno. Ora i cambiamenti vengono accelerati attraverso contributo umano, se crediamo nel cambiamento climatico. Colorazione squisita e anche la luce. Ottimo PdV. Ciao. Klaudio.

Hi Yiannis. Interesting story about human sacrifice. There are similar stories of such sacrifices, sometimes even lovers becoming part of the plan to keep the bridge standing. I heard such stories in Yugoslavia and it involves Ottoman bridges. Lovely bridge taken from excellent POV in excellent light. Regards. Klaudio.[+]

Hi Gyorgy. Charming photo with the contrast between the illuminated background and darker and more defined foreground. A perfectionist would find the electrical wire intrusive and unnecessary. I read your response to Gert with interest and I shall add that Australia has unfortunately become known for its treatment of refugees through its incarceration of families (including young children) on remote Pacific islands with no chance of settling in Australia. It costs hundreds of millions of dollars to keep them there as we pay these islands to keep them there. The children are showing signs of being psychologically damaged by the brutal conditions they live under with guards and barbed wire surrounding them. I can only thanks my lucky stars that when my family became refugees, the French government didn't treat us as aliens from another planet and saw us as human beings- something we do not do with the Muslim people who are being slaughtered as we write these words to each other. If we walk a few steps in their shoes, then we will begin to understand their despair and fears that drive them to risk their lives and leave their ancestral homes behind. Regards. Klaudio.[+]

Hi Ana. Fascinating note and the practice reminds me of the Druid revival in UK. But I do wonder how close the ceremonies are to the original pre Christian ones. Anyway, lovely photo with the devotional silhouettes.What type of God was he/ Like Zeus or Bacchus? The Slavs too had many gods. I know the name of one- Perun. Regards. Klaudio.
