Catching a bus, or an acid trip...this is wild! :P Loving the composition, the tight crop really makes this come alive with intrigue and color.
My eyes don't quite know where to begin looking this over, but I'm having a fun time with it! Terrific observation and smart concept which puts the brain in motion. And to top it off, I believe you've even managed yourself to be visible?? The gentleman in waiting is the perfect addition of human presence and contrast. This is almost like a Fun House mirror. :)
Great shot, this is a feast to analyze. Have a good one. Take it easy.
Cheers from Az.,
Admiring the Taj Mahal by macjake (58992)

What's new bud? I took a quick peek at FB today and saw this shot, so I thought I'd take a gander on the TE pages to see if it showed up here as well. :)
What an original way to showcase the Taj Mahal, and without it being the featured subject. Brilliant idea to use it as such a strong and distinct background element, and not stealing any attention from the locals in the foreground....well, and an apparent tourist also. lol
Loved the black & whites you posted also, killer shots all the way around! Crazy how people are so consumed with today's technology, seemingly oblivious to the surrounding hallmark architecture. Amazing what we take for granted, yeah....like the Grand Canyon!? Oops!
Hope all is going well. Always anticipating your next IG pic. ;)Have a good one. Take it easy.
Cheers from Phoenix,

How are you, my friend? I can't help but laugh at this picture, I love the humor and cultural aspect of this shot...definitely not something you would ever see around Arizona, yeah? lol
An unexpected surprise and a great way to learn about a different, and from my perspective, an unusual "visitor" to the streets. :) It looks like there are plenty of products for him to choose from, but I wonder what deer prefer the most...perhaps the ice cream treat? :) Hope all is going well. Take it easy.

Meeting in Tuscany by Gigidusud (17327)

Salut Miss Gigi,
Absolutely wonderful! Although I am currently taking a break from FB, I kept watch for the surprise, as I knew it was coming. ;) A delight that you were able to meet and have such a great time together...I only wish I could have been there as well. I'm afraid I don't speak Italian though, but French would have been o.k. :)
I've enjoyed following along with the pictures from your meeting, and it would surely seem that Carlo is a great host to his beautiful country! Thanks for sharing the experience with us. As for this picture, bright blue skies and lush green fields....simple, and simply enticing for the eyes. Bon weekend mon ami. Ciao.

poppies carpet by COSTANTINO (57993)

A fine manner in which to give dedication to the month of May and the Spring season. A bright, cheerful and colorful carpet of poppies to admire, filling the frame with a fresh sensation. This is they type of composition and subject which would also work quite well as a painting.
Not much is needed to say for an understanding of its appeal. Simply beautiful! :) Hope all is going well. Take good care.
Black Swan by Noel_Byrne (26121)

O.K., this really drives home the point that one truly does learn something new every day. Perhaps it's common knowledge for most, but I had no idea there were such things as black swans...this is, well...to be simple minded of sorts, cool! :)
Regardless of color, it's an elegant creature, and this darkened appearance certainly gives it a completely different look and feel...leaning more on the side of their ill tempered personalities at times. lol
A wonderfully clear and precise shot, this is a delightful profile with great detail and texture. Very well done! Hope all is going well, and you're enjoying those traditional Irish blue skies and sunshine. ;) Take it easy.
Cheers from the desert,
Ladies and lions by holmertz (43293)

I'm glad you decided to post a few more pictures from this country despite your aforementioned lack of enthusiasm after the devastating natural disaster. It's not only a continued interest and cultural learning experience for us as viewers, but I believe it also helps keep the people of Nepal in our thoughts and prayers.
As I've mentioned before, much in large part to TE influences over the past couple of years, I have found pictures to be much more significant when people are included, particularly the local population. I completely agree with your notes, it has been like a "gift from above." :) Yet another prime example of that mindset in a picture such as this! Thanks for continuing to provide these visual insights and personal experiences. Hope all is well. Take good care.
Friendly wishes from Az.,
Baby is angry! by worldcitizen (7323)
jcpix (13724) 2015-05-03 10:24
This is awesome, I'm loving Baby Hulk! :) What a terrific, and super colorful shot of NYC city streets. I was just about to log off and thought I'd take a quick peek at the main gallery, and needless to say, this jumped off the page!
So much to take in here, and I love the fact you included a couple of people to have that human element and integration with the big, bold backdrop. As I had just mentioned to Serghei, you never know what you may come across with big city life...and that's what makes roaming the streets so much fun, and opportunistic with camera at the ready. :) Hope all is going well. The countdown clock is surely ticking. :) Take it easy.
Cheers from the West side,
PINK LIKE ... SAKURA by serp2000 (41424)
jcpix (13724) 2015-05-03 10:18
Hello my dear friend,
Pretty in pink? I suppose that's decided upon each individuals preferences, yeah? :) Although I can't say I'm a fan of the fashion style, I love this kind of daily life showing. That authentic, local culture and "life on the streets" once again shines through in your photograph.
What's also very interesting is the collection of other people and their choice of dress, great to see the differences. These two young, pink ladies sure stand out in contrast though, huh? :) Another wonderful shot of reality and personality. Big city life has it all covered, and it's fun to watch! Hope all is going well bud. Take it easy.

A charmy chapel by danos (88923)

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.
