Hi Noel. A moving tribute to not only the Irish immigrants but also the many others from all over the world who left for the New World. My grandfather and his three brothers were processed on Ellis Island probably around the same time. They worked in a foundry , saved money and came back to Dalmatia to build a family home, buy land and set up a business. When my mother left with my sister and me to join our dad in Paris on board of an Italian passenger ship there were many who like Annie who kept looking towards Genoa (and Europe) as the ship left harbour. I can tell you that as a child I saw many adults crying. For us, like for Annie's brothers, it was an adventure.
A moving and informative note and a touching finale with the finding of her grave and the erection of the Celtic Cross. Best wishes. Klaudio.

Salam Farhat and welcome back. Eleven months to build! Just a few hundred metres from my home several men with modern machinery are taking just about as long to build a small children's playground. Every time I drive or walk past they are either having a break, discussing something or leaning on something. Majestic building, impressive and elegant. i hope the air conditioning is operating for humidity can be a destroyer of things men build. Regards. Klaudio.

Hi Jorge. i was there on the Zambian side but during the dry season and the flow of water wasn't that spectacular. There are deep pools where the white couple is and supposedly safe.From your POV the falls look powerful and majestic.Regards. Klaudio.

A very special shot Serge, especially when the light is so obliging as it highlights the boat while keeping the water surrounding it quite dark and in the distance its lighting up the stacks and the mansion on the mainland. Excellent exposure, sharpness and colours. Amicalement. Klaudio.

To Post or not to Post, that is the Question.One is excited to see such a place and learn about its history and one wants to share it with others and then one finds out that the same sentiments are often difficult to relay in a photo. The photo does give us a good impression of what it must have felt like sitting there on a balmy evening with several hundreds of other people,enjoying a performance. Selam. Klaudio.

Merhaba Ahmet. The Black sea area is very beautiful and today watching a documentary I have learned that all the blue eyed people in the world share one woman ancestor about 200,000 years ago, who had blue eyes and lived in this area of the world.Lovely POV and atmosphere. Selamlar. Klaudio.

Hi Jasmine. The sea is near but to see a boat, or half of it as a garden sculpture is something unexpected. I like this photo the best as it stands out against the sky and also has the green gate for company. Regards. Klaudio.
