Great photo and note. When I first looked at this building I was thinking that it was rather simple for a President's house, then I realized through your note that I wasn't even looking at the front! I like the chosen angle, with the bunch of red flowers in the foreground. I like the WS photo, too! You actually got to meet members of the President's family. :-) The dogs are adorable; I don't think US presidents let their pets meet the public. :-)

This is a lovely capture. The actor has quite an expression on his face, and his kimono is stunning. I especially like that there is actually a painting on the famous Kinkakuji temple on it. The colors in this scene are so vivid and beautiful.

Nice capture of these musicians on their way to play some tunes. I don't mind graffiti if it matches the character of the neighborhood, and in this scene it adds extra splashes of color to the already colorful wall. If people are simply defacing a clean residential building, then I don't agree with it. I don't know if that's the case in this particular location. It's a nice daily life scene anyway.

I've seen this funny man before here on TE, and I like that you captured this smiling woman posing with him. I actually don't mind the red backpack because it compliments the other bits of red color near the doorway. It's a fun photo.

I like this alpine architecture. It mixes traditional details with what looks like modern comfort. The woodwork is lovely, and I like all of the greenery surrounding these houses. It's a charming scene.

You were courageous to take photos in Zimbabwe. A good friend of mine is from Harare, and most of her family has had to leave due to the current situation. Sadly, the Zimbabwe she grew up in was prosperous and the people were happy. Things have gone backwards... About your lovely portrait, this man manages a smile, even under difficult circumstances. It's a realistic look at daily life in a country that we don't get to see much of these days.

It was a pleasant surprise to find your name under a photo of flying planes. It's definitely something different for you. :-) I think you did a great job capturing these three beauties. The different designs on each plane are interesting, too.

Welcome to TrekEarth! Your first photo here is truly beautiful. I like the colors in the sky, and the calm reflections. The small fisherman's house and all of the branches jutting up from the small pier are a wonderful subject. As the sun rises, everything is slowly illuminated beautifully. Very nice! :-)

This is definitely an adorable portrait. The child sees you, and is happy to smile for your camera. :-) His hat is so intricate and beautiful, and it's nice to see the traditional clothes of the adults in the WS. Lovely framing and colors, too. You captured a very sweet moment.

This is a curious double scene. There is so much activity outside of the arch, with lots of color and old architecture. Then we see those two mysterious people on the inside. It's like seeing two different worlds at the same time. You handled the difficult lighting very well, too I like it. :-)
