Hello Malgo, I always enjoy seeing colorful, Baroque architecture. This looks like a beautiful street. I really like the green building behind the Plague Column. It's interesting, and also sad, to read about these columns. So many lives were lost during the Plague. It must have been a terrifying time in Europe.

Hello John, What a lovely portrait! The warm smile of this man is very nice, and I like the small details of his costume, too. The small, wooden shoe holding his red bandana is very sweet. The buttons are interesting, too. Very nice. :-)

Hello Gert, Gritty, urban street scenes are definitely my taste. :-) It's fascinating to see all the bottles and cartons in the large windows. The red and white sign also catches my eye, and that old wooden door is great, too. With the woman and dog passing by, you captured an intriguing scene.

Hello Vasilis, Happy TE Anniversary! :-) I like the colors created by the setting sun, and the way they reflect into the water. You must have been with someone else, or had two cameras with you. Either way, I like the inclusion of the camera and tripod very much. We have the same scene again in miniature to enjoy. :-)[+]

Ciao Luciano, This view reminds me of Niagara Falls. The power of the water is very clear, and the color is lovely. Too bad there were no people or structures to compare the size with. It looks very large, and it must also be very loud. :-)

Ciao Carlo, I recognized that this was Calatrava's design right away. It seems that he likes to use the same kind of material for each train station he builds. :-) I like these modern waves, and the beautiful, blue sky behind them. A train station in Belgium, and now the new one here in NYC, have a similar white "skeleton:, and it is very unique and attractive.

Hello Manuel, I like silhouettes, and you captured some great ones here. The colors are beautiful, especially the blue in the center, and I also like the reflections on the shiny floor. We can see just how large this centerpiece is, since the people look small in front of it.

Hello Lars, It's been a while since I visited Independence Hall, but I remember meeting Benjamin Franklin outside. Well, it was a man who was dressed like him anyway. :-) Nice presentation of this historic building. I like the contrast of old and new with more modern buildings in the background. The red, white, and blue bunting adds extra interest to the scene. I hope all is well with you. :-)
