This shot is how I know Luxembourg: hills, lots of green, a river, everything is clean and well maintained. The last couple of years I went to Luxembourg a few times to run the (half) marathon. I think it is pretty unique because it is a 'night run'. It starts at 1800 which means the slow runners (myself) finish when it is dark and cold. You run the streets of a city but they are empty. Its a lonely race... but I keep coming back...
Again, your shot is how I know Luxembourg: emtpy streets, cold, dark, lonely.

I haven't seen this building before but it looks a bit like the top of a hotel that I've seen in cape town. Very clean shot. You really have your own distinct style here on TE. I have been away for some time but your photos are of high quality. They are always 'clean' and have sometimes symmetry. They look simple but I can imaging it takes a LOT of effort to get them.

Interesting architecture indeed. If feel that the picture is a bit too strong in color, contrast and sharpenning. Interesting that you took this in portait instead of landscape, that would have shown more of the square.

Beautiful shot of these balconys. It looks very 'professional'. The only distracting is the plant in the bottom right corner. If I had such a photo, I would enlarge it and hang it on the wall. Very well done.

Incredible shot of the road. It kind of reminds me of a road that leads to the top of the Etna vulcano. That was black gravel and also zig zaggy. You need a 4x4 with jumbo tires to get anywhere. That road is only fun if you can drive yourself.Gilbert

I love your 1970s series. I will check all of them coming weekend. Panama is on my want-to-see list (which country isn't?) but Syria is higher on that list. I like the Middle East, I feel at home there and the ME countries I have visited, local people thought I was from there.
Years ago I flew from Amsterdam via Prague to Beirut. In the plane almost all people from Syria. I was the 'stranger' in the plane. The guy next to me asked: "where are you going?" Me: "I'm about to run the Beirut marathon". We started chatting. This was right after the Hariri bombing. Then suddenly I asked: "How's the relationship now between people from Syria and Lebanon." He looked at me thinking, you are too far from this conflict, you don't understand and said: "You must just run, it is not of your concern.". The conversation stopped. Walking out of the plane, he wished me good luck for the race.
I like what you've done to the verhicles and people. TFS, Gilbert
