This is a blast from the past! The quality might not be good, but I like it anyway. :-) I love seeing older photos of NYC, with the old model cars and different styles of clothes. With this photo I can see all the changes that have come to the giant tree over the years. It looks like there are actual ornaments and light bulbs on this one, while now there are energy-efficient LED bulbs that twinkle and flash. You must have been in one of the office buildings to get this POV; it's different than what we usually see. Thanks for pulling out this oldie, and also for adding me as a favorite. :-)
Winter in Chisinau by ChrisJ (99140)

This is a nice winter view of a city we don't see very often here on TE. Thanks to your note I also know the correct pronunciation of it now, too. :-) I like the small bits of color- the cars, the kiosk, etc. - and the tracks in the snow. The high POV is very nice, as well.
vaporetto di venezia by batalay (35723)

I like this alternate view of the vaporetto passengers. Even though your camera is facing the mirror, one of the passengers still seems to sense that he's being photographed. The man with the dark sunglasses appears to be looking right at us. :-) This is a nice combination of reflection and actual background. In my humble opinion, I might add a bit more contrast, but it's a lovely photo as is. :-)

Nice to see you back here on TE. :-) I was looking through your gallery, and found this gem. I love this view! I have a similar photo in my gallery, but with a longer lead-in, and a wider POV. I go to Grand Central Frequently, and I love this combination of the Beaux Arts terminal, and the modern skyscraper above it. Every summer there are a few weekends when Park Avenue is completely closed to vehicles, and you can actually walk up this elevated section that wraps around the terminal building. You can get some cool and unique views. Great photo! :-)
Snow monkey 2015 #4 by bukitgolfb301 (36206)

I really like all of your snow monkey photos, and this one is especially sweet. I can feel the love the mother has for her baby, and baby is so cute. It's interesting to see them clinging to a pole instead of in the water. They look comfortable, even though they must be holding on tightly.

This is really a charming photo. I like all of the different textures and earthy colors. The large jug itself has so many lovely details. Is it used for collecting water? The goat seems happy to pose for you, and makes the scene even sweeter. Very nice! :-)
Leslie Dan Pharmacy Building by bbarna (824)

This is a very interesting interior. I've never seen anything like it before. The giant pod is very futuristic. At first glance it didn't look large enough to hold so many people, but it must be spacious inside. Nice POV, showing some of the lobby and the activity inside. Thanks for the WS photo, too.
Cream Tea Time, Perhaps! by Royaldevon (30145)

This is a lovely daily life shot. This family looks like they are enjoying themselves, although they are eating ice cream, and not the tea and scones mentioned in your note. The scones with cream and jam sound delicious; I'd love to have some. :-) Seagulls can definitely be aggressive, but so can hungry children! Ha ha! It's sweet that the father has his baby in a pouch in front of him.
Lombardy's winter 5 by lousat (77792)

I was looking at your older photos, and found this one that is perfect during our snowy winter. We just had another storm today. I really like the simplicity of this view, with the tree trunks and shadows creating an interesting pattern against the snow. This is a very artistic composition.
Stained Glass Artworks - X by mesutilgim (85318)

I like the sea shell design on this particular window. The way you have the natural background blurred behind this artistic piece of glass is very attractive. Sometimes these small stained glass windows can be just as beautiful as larger ones.
