The title definitely garners intrigue, I like the touch of humor you've infused here. :) Definitely not a lazy lady if she can carry hundreds of passengers and get this kind of lift....up, up and away! A strong angle that emphasizes the raw power of aviation, and the faint vapor trails give a nice touch of added effect. This makes me want to be on that plane right now, off to a new adventure...but alas, I'm stuck at work!? Enjoy the rest of the day. Take good care.
Three Very Different Men by emka (74963)

Hello Miss M.
Hmm, they're not all that different really...I mean, each one of these men has a mustache. :) A fun picture, and a nice tribute to Craig in advance of his trip next year. Also, a nice follow-up on his theme of differences...this is a wonderful trio to analyze.
They all seem to have similar expression though, almost like "deer in the headlights" watching your lens. Funny that you don't remember much about taking the picture, like some of Gerts...but you both come away with terrific results of human interest.
I guess I won't be able to tag along with this one, as I've never been to India. lol Thanks for detailing the background swastika, a very interesting and learned facet of this picture and culture...always good to learn something new. Enjoy the rest of the day my dear. Take care.
Warmest wishes from the hot desert,

For someone like me who is afraid of heights, this gets my heartbeat racing and makes my palms a bit sweaty! It's a great, elevated viewpoint...I'm just glad I can enjoy it from the safety of my computer. :) The inclusion of the beams helps the sense of anxiety, feels like I'm standing there myself looking down...waaaaaay down! Good timing to have that group of people boating the river, a nice touch and bonus effect. O.K., I'm backing away now, thanks for the scare. :) Have a great day. Take care.

I would also contend this is a nice setting for photography as well. :) This slightly elevated point of view and composition draws us in with a wide foreground and then converges into the distance with ease...a nice "flow" from front to back. Simple and clear, it certainly looks like a nice day to be out enjoying the sunny skies along the canal. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take good care.

France? Paris..you say, o.k....I'm listening! :) As a huge fan of this country/city, you have my attention. I think this is a wonderful announcement, and I look forward with anticipation to viewing the city through your lens. A great start, and a timeless classic that I never tire of seeing. This compressed composition gives a strong perspective to the size of the tower and the bustling activity that surrounds this place.Clear, sharp and well detailed. Can't wait for more! Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.
Red carpets, green tea by holmertz (38523)

A very interesting facet of culture here, sitting on these "tables" while having tea. What is common for one may be unusual to another, but that's what makes this big world go 'round, and this is a great learning tool.
What timing too, you caught this at a fine moment with the cup raised to mouth and that connected glance. The curious stare from the gentleman in the background (to the left) is also a very strong point in regard. Probably a good thing you didn't temp fate with any further pictures...good thing you came away with a good ONE though, this turned out wonderfully. Tea for two? :) Enjoy the new day. Take care.

I took a quick look at TE earlier this afternoon and could have sworn I saw a new picture you had posted, but I don't see one now?? No matter, I always enjoy going through your gallery. As I sit here snacking on some dark chocolate, it was only natural that I stopped at this picture. :)
Full of color and sugar, it's got me hooked! lol As you mention, I get a sense of that fun atmosphere from the imagery, especially seeing children and adults alike. The title is also a good reminder of childhood nostalgia. A place good enough to satisfy any sweet tooth, and any photographer, yeah? :) A vivid display of detail and interesting products to scan over...I'll take one of everything please! Hope you've had a good weekend. Take it easy.

I really like the depth of field for this shot, the focus is squarely on the guide, but there's still enough to make out from the lengthy and converging perspective. Quite a corner of color too, the far right dominates against the muted remainder of the frame. An interesting study here, a good mix of graphism and human elements. Hope you had a nice weekend. Take care.

Wow, 3,006 organ pipes...geez, I can hear them from here! :) I'm sure they make a lovely sound, and would certainly be a fine compliment to the charm of this town. This is colorful alright, varied shades of yellow, burnt orange, touches of red, and a clear blue sky...it's a painters paradise. Or in this case, it's a wonderful palate for a photographer. A fun, bright and lively mixture put together. Oh, and i almost forgot the greenery. :) Have a great week ahead. Take it easy.

Glad you decided to make a trip back through your archives to find and share with us this fine picture of Westminster. She's a beauty alright, and this rendition gives credence to the striking visual and stature of this cathedral. I wasn't so lucky with the weather on my visit, nor with the traffic passing in front...you've come away with a clear and grand result. Looks great, and imposing...but in a nice way. :) Have a good day ahead. Al the best.
