Another lovely Carnival photo. I like that this time the mask is being held, and we have the person's hands in the frame. The wood stick and interesting costume combine with the mask to create an authentic view.

Cute little house, with interesting shapes. It almost looks like some sort of wooden mushroom popping out of the white landscape. Maybe it's better you didn't find out what was inside...there may have been some strange experiments going on, and they would have grabbed you and Tosca like in some bad horror film!!! (I recently saw a movie about tourists who disappeared, so you'll have to excuse me on this one!) LOL!

I'm stumped! I keep looking at these buildings, but they don't ring a bell. If only I could make out the logo on top of the bottom right one...It's nice to get a skyscraper view without having to strain my neck this time. :-) I like the space between these buildings, and the different forms and windows.

A very interesting note and photo. Visually the photo has a nice effect, with the homes climbing vertically, and the nice red color. The living conditions in that area, though, are probably not the best. Thanks for sharing this image, and using it to tell us about this situation.

I like aquariums - and aquarium photos. :-) This one is great. It seems like the entire wall is a giant window, and there are so many interesting creatures inside. The shades of blue are beautiful, and the assorted silhouettes on the bottom complete this wonderful scene. You even captured some fellow photographers. :-)

You were brave to go out taking photos during the polar vortex, but you captured a great one. :-) Even though the sun shines brightly, it's no match for the frigid temperatures. I really like the mist over the water, and the bit of clear land with branches on the right. The whole scene is beautiful, even though I know how uncomfortable you must have felt. Let's hope spring is finally on the way!
Coming to America by jcpix (8296)

"...on the boats and on the planes, they're coming to America..." :-) Your recent photo titles are making me hear music! That song was the first thing that came to mind, but the movie was cute, too.
I like your attempt at an old-fashioned feeling. I also like it when we are looking at people looking at the main subject. It's as if we are peaking in on their private moment. Gotta love Miss Liberty, too. I think this experiment was a success. :-)

Gorgeous cathedral, with an excellent presentation. I really like the way you used the arch as a frame. The blue sky, beautiful architecture, and creative POV, all combine to make a great photo.

Africa is so full of colors. I really like the inside walls of this shop. The blue color is especially bright. It's a treat to see this dressmaker at work, and get to study the details of this small shop: the sewing machine, a mirror, a certificate of some kind. It's a lovely daily life scene.
