Bonjour chere Cri Cri
Oooh la la! There are so many elements in this photo which strike me. Wonderful vivid colours, beautiful nets scattered around the characteristic boats and amazing light on the water. The architecture in the BG is enchanting, beautifully rendered.

I often say this, but we are born in prosperous, peaceful countries by sheer luck, an accident of birth. Not by good management or cultural superiority. Yet there are so many of us fortunate people in this world who are conditioned to blame the poor for their poverty or the afflicted for their affliction. It helps us to turn a blind eye and ignore the fact that our wealthy fortunate countries have exploited those less fortunate, of their resources, wealth and humanity. This disconnect stuns and saddens me, and makes me angry. I'm re-reading the Open Veins of America by Eduardo Galeano at the moment, and he puts the case so much more eloquently than I have. But I think you understand what I'm trying to say. So whilst I see the incredible beauty of your photo, I see so much more in its symbolism and note. The hall-marks of a successful photo, one that stays with us.
My heart goes out to this lady, working herself to death. Whilst the 1% grow richer and even more uncaring from her toils.
The technical beauty of this photo is beyond dispute. But the emotions it evokes are so much more important.
Thanks for sharing

Ciao dear Brenda
It looks like a still shot from a movie. I love the vibrant colours and the poses of these New Yorkers going about their daily business. The colours are not what I picture in my mind when I think of the NY Subway, where dreary colours come to mind. So thank you for dispelling that. Thanks for sharing and I wish you a beautiful day.

Hola dear Angel
A timeless scene from this delightful town. Andalusia is famous for its horses and I am so happy that you have shown us this side of Spanish life. Wonderful colours and sense of movement and excitement. Excellent work.

Ciao dear Jean
You are making me homesick for Bella Napoli. I know this street well, in Spaccanapoli, God how I miss it. Excellent vertical frame, good tight cropping, you have captured the frenzy of a Neapolitan street perfectly.

hehehe un titolo piena di mistero. E che bella la sorpresa dentro il WS. Hai fatto bene notare questo bello guaglione. Ottima la foto dei cipressi e la strada bagnata. Mi piace molto la prospettiva e colori ricci. Una foto divertente ed affascinante.
