This is a very attractive interior. I like the graphism with all the lines and curves. It's also great that you captured someone sitting in those colorful chairs. I do think the photo could use a bit more sharpness, but it's well-seen and composed. A Happy New Year to you!

Some clever lines have already been written about this boy's imminent future, and the minaret tower, so I'll just comment on the photo itself. ;-) That's definitely an interesting outfit, and not one that I would guess was worn for a circumcision ceremony. It has a regal look to it. I like the way the boy, and the women with, him are all walking arm-in-arm. It's a great daily life and cultural photo. Great title, too! :-)

Of course these fireworks were for you; having a TE member visit one's city is a big deal. :-) Fireworks are tricky, but you pulled it off with a sharp and colorful photo. I like the buildings beneath the bursts, too.
P.S. Don't forget that the jokers are back this week with two new shows. I can't wait! :-)

Cool photo! It really pulls us in with the warm lighting and bold colors. I like the traditional architecture in the background, and the way you framed the words. You were lucky to finally get a shot without people, and it came out really well. Your iPhone should be proud of itself. ;-) By the way, why is this written in English in the middle of Moscow? Did they have these same words in other languages, too, or did they just like the way both words ended in "ow" in English? Just wondering... :-)

Another excellent oldie with lots of details to enjoy. I am drawn to the traditional architecture in the background, with lovely artwork on the central part of the facade. The two men, dressed differently, who are looking in your direction, both seem amused by your camera. It's a wonderful and lively scene, and the quality is great, too.

Me gusta esta escena con el puente y el río. El cielo gris no me molesta; un cielo gris puede ser lindo, también. :-) Hay detalles interesantes, como el "water taxi" cerca del pequeño edifico blanco. Si tú y Josep vengan aquí el próximo año, quiero conocer a Uds. personalmente, y pasar algún tiempo juntos. :-)

Great shot! I like this traditional, wooden house; it has so much charm and character. The little girl's face is precious, (even though Craig might think she's a bit sinister...ha ha!), and the splashes of blue jump out at us. There's so much to like about this one. I even like that one vine with leaves on it that's creeping upwards. Cool photo! :-)
#900 on TE - Chicago Train Bridge by macjake (53278)

Happy 900th! It's a beauty. You created an original POV with this raised bridge in the foreground. I like all the city lights, and long exposures always create such silky and lovely water. :-) Nice job getting some major icons together in this shot.
