Nice Times Square shot. I like all of the colors and activity. Yes, NYC is full of different people - even Spiderman feels at home here as we can see in this scene. ;-) Thanks for your kind words about my city. :-)

I like this vertical composition. The woman looks so tiny next to those giant columns! I also like the play of light and shadow on the ground. Because the woman's clothes are so bright, she really stands out, and makes this scene an attractive one. By the way, I hope your shoulder is feeling better now. :-)

Thanks for leading me to this photo. I like your chosen POV; in this shot you are facing the World Financial Center to the west. The raindrops on the memorial add even more sadness to the scene. I'm not sure how the memorial looks during winter, but it must be a different feeling when the trees are bare. I will try to visit it then and see...

There are a few Apple stores in Manhattan, but this one is always the busiest. I like this night view with the apples lit up. The red coat in the foreground also catches my eye. I hope all is well with you and your family. :-)

Great photo from your "time machine". I like these faces, and the traditional headdresses. It's haunting to see photos from a place that sadly can't be visited now, and where the citizens are fighting for their very lives. You seem to have been everywhere...

Great atmosphere in this photo! The contrast of the white snow and dark, grey sky is beautiful. The colors of the houses pop out to add even more magic to the scene. This view really conjures up the feeling of being far north.

Thanks for this poignant tribute. It's true that this year's anniversary of 9/11 was very quiet - even here in NYC. Your journal entry is also very thoughtful and well-written. I will also, certainly, never forget...

Me gusta mucho esta imagen de Andorra. La arquitectura de piedra es muy linda, y debe ser muy vieja, también. Con este cielo azul, y la montaña cubierta con árboles, es una escena muy bella. Felicidades en la ocasión de tu jubilación. :-)

I was looking at your four photos of this artwork, and I like this view the best. The layers of green and yellow on the bottom of the frame are lovely, and then those two giant horse heads appear. I like surreal scenes, and things that appear in unexpected places. The artwork itself is beautiful, too.

This is such a beautiful scene. It looks like a fairy tale. I really like the way you used the red and green plants as a partial frame. The small houses and winding road are charming, too. It's nice to see this more rural side of Russia.
