I could also recognise this one before seeing your name - but by the title, rather than the picture! The picture itself is very spacious and those lamp cables meet nicely above the tower. And yes, that little fellow seems to have a sufi style hat on. Strangely enough, the young man having a drink is what draws the eye, with his red jumper. Wonderful light and shadows and the intricate beauty of the architecture.
All is well here. Have a happy Xmas with the family, and maybe we'll get together next week or in new year.

A very sharp looking landscape taken against the sun. Very good exposure considering the contrast and the need to control the highlights in the foreground. But the snow has excellent detail. A delight.
Happy Christmas to you.

Some problems with the image quality here, but I expect it's a crop or perhaps high ISO and slight focus or movement blur. But that's not important, as it's a very stiking image, with great contrast in colours and patterns, and a strong sense of movement conveyed by the woman. Terrific daily life image.

A rather gloomy but atmospheric winter photo of this old church. How deserted it looks, and the cracks made by time. A stark but effective 'full frontal' shot against a dull sky. A Christmas time shot with a difference.
Regards, and Happy Christmas

A pleasing nautical photo captured with great timing. It's nice to see the blue sky and clouds in the rippling water, and one has a sense of time standing still. A slightly different angle and you wouldn't need the horizon at all - to my mind it's a little too high.
Happy Christmas and new year to you.

Great colour in this daily life scene, winter still hanging around. The cafe looks inviting. Glad you included some of the blue of the next door shop, and the man in the warm overcoat.
and happy Christmas,

Hello Noel and happy Christmas.
Very nice well saturated shot, making great use of the bright colours and the diagonal line the houses make, and they seem to be the 'meat in the sandwich' here. Great name for this terrace, too.

A very nice composition, with the windy road laid out behind the donkey rider as he makes his way slowly towards the camera. The green grass certainly softens the landscape. This one has a timeless quality.
and best wishes for Christmas and new year.

Nicely composed and well controlled exposure and highlights under a polarised sky. I like the look of it, the tone, well produced to convey a strong sense of the decaying industrial architecture. The perspective view is very strong and I like the presence of the person on the path.
