What a picturesque setting for this small chapel! This would make me actually want to attend, if for nothing else, to soak up the scenery and sea. :)
Tucked away into a cozy corner, this looks incredibly inviting, and as you mention in the title itself, quite charming. Fresh, bright and filled with scenic beauty. Very nicely presented. Hope all is well. Take care.

You know how much I like this one...and all of 'em of course, but this certainly is the show stealer for me. :)
I wouldn't be able to pass this up either! Funny how the mindset changes over time, eh? :) I think both of us would have overlooked an opportunity like this not that many years ago. Having the inclusion of this gentleman is key to bringing it all together, regardles of whether or not those are his materials.
A simple scene by nature, but one that tells, or can create a story of your own imagination. Great observation and lots of neat details and rustic textures to enjoy in this shot. Outstanding take of a "routine" moment on the streets! Hope you've been able to re-adjust to the work life routine. lol Have a good one bud.Take it easy.
Cheers from down South,

Heartbreaking to see the images on t.v. and knowing the loss of life and history from the earthquake. Your pictures can at least keep in mind what was for many of these places with fond memories, a record of the past, despite the current conditions.
An impressive site no doubt, and we all hope and pray for a quick recovery. Thank you for sharing these photos, it's our small way of supporting those affected. Hope all has been well. Take good care.
Friendly wishes from the desert,

How are you doing? I've enjoyed being able to follow along with your pictures from Japan that you've posted here. This is definitely one of my favorites, i love these types of "every day" scenes. So much authenticity and character outside of the usual and more popular tourist spots...although, I'm always a sucker for those too. :)
This tells a simple story of a local man going about his daily affairs, and I applaud him for still riding a bike...he's doing much better than myself. lol
Many details and a fun visual snapshot of a day in the life. Very well constructed and timed perfectly to capture this moment. Hope everything is going good on your side of the world. :) Take it easy. All the best.
Cheers from Phoenix,

Quite an impressive view, I'm sure it's even more breathtaking to see in person. I can only imagine it just seems to go on forever, the city lights are endless!
This vantage point surely offers a wonderful panorama and gives us a good idea of the cities dense and mass layout. Having the use of your tripod paid off well, this is very well exposed and sharp...never hurts to carry that around, yeah? :)
So glad you were able to meet with Takero and have such a good time on your visit, this will be a nice memory to keep in mind. Only too bad you weren't able to meet up with Krzysztof as well.
A city this size must be exhausting, but this is sure a great way to end the day! Great shot my friend. Hope you're having just as good a weekend. Take it easy bud.
Cheers from sunny Phoenix,

Not the most attractive of graffiti, but hey...it doesn't take anything away from what you've captured here with the play of light and shadow! This has very much the look of many European street scenes...or do they have the look of a NYC street scene?? lol
You just never know what kind of little gem you might find by simply wandering the streets, and this one sure paid off. Never hurts to get lost sometimes either. :) Hope you've had a nice Easter weekend. Take care.
P.S. Check your e-mail when you can. :)

As relatively close as I live to this area, I've never been for a visit!? Until then, I will gladly enjoy this bright, colorful and vibrant visual of the lake and its surroundings. :) The deep blue of the water and yellow blooms compliment each other quite well, making for an appealing scene under a sunny sky. Spring time fresh! :) All the best. Take care.

So often it's the little things such as this figurine which are the most attractive qualities of a given town. This lend a good idea to the character and charm of what we don't see here, making this all the more interesting.
Not only does this little flute player bring a smile, but the wonderful rich colors and textures of the framework amplify the sentiment. Hope you've enjoyed a nice Easter weekend. Take good care.

How on Earth did we ever survive before the digital age of photography, huh? I just took a quick 2 day getaway and snapped off about 500 pics...crazy how times have changed! :)
Well, you certainly made the most out of your limited film and turned out a wonderful shot here. Despite the cities small size, you've captured a large amount of interest and activity. I'll continue to say it, your scanning quality is top notch...this looks incredibly good for its age! Hope you enjoyed a pleasant Easter weekend. Take care.

Such a delicate beauty and presentation you have given us with this shot. For something of a perceived "common" type of subject, that being flowers of course...this has a wonderful sentiment of peace and love. And speaking of which, I love the sharp attention to detail and clarity, allowing this to lotus to shine brightly...and far from anything routine.
Now, the pagan side of me is off for some chocolate. :) Hope you enjoyed a nice Easter weekend. All the best.
