Hello Chris, What a beautiful view. The bright colors and warm lighting are really nice. That one boat passing by creates a nice sense of motion, and I like your POV. The water is also a stunning shade of turquoise. The small mosque, and your accompanying note, tie this presentation together perfectly.

Hello Craig, This looks like a charming and scenic place to stop for some photos. The dry-docked boats create a nice foreground view, too. Thankfully you survived the challenging driving. :-) I remember the first time I went to Japan. Every time I crossed the street my impulse was to look to the left, but cars were coming straight at me from the opposite direction!

Hello Sergei, Congratulations on ten years! I also celebrated my tenth TE anniversary this year, but I did post a special photo. I miss Japan, so I'm always happy to see photos from that beautiful country. There are nice colors and good activity in this scene. It's also funny that the cafes behind the demonstrators are all in English. I hope we will enjoy TE for many more years. :-)

Ciao Luciano, Very nice job capturing this amazing ceiling. Your camera was pointing straight upwards, and I can feel my neck straining as if I were also there looking up. :-) Every September there is a large San Gennaro festival in Little Italy here in NYC. I guess many of the Italian immigrants in the area were originally from Naples.

Ciao Carlo, I love this kind of photo! This giant looks like he has run away, and is trying not to be noticed as he sits down on the roof. It is very funny to see him on top of a small building like this. Thanks for the smile. :-)

Hello Malgo, I think you should publish a photo book about architecture in Astana...it is definitely surreal! This tipped over jar is so unique, and you captured it perfectly. I don't think I'd like to eat boiled meat either. I'd have to stick with rice dishes if I were there. :-)
Green on Top by macjake (68458)

Hello Craig, This is different. I think I even see a tiny person walking on some of that "roof grass". This complex is very industrial-looking, and the greenery on top makes it stand out even more from the traditional architecture behind it. Next I'm waiting to see a fully-functioning farm complete with animals on the roof of an Edinburgh building. ;-)

Hello Bev, I guess everyone loves some bagpipe music. ;-) I like your framing, and, of course, the gentleman himself. This photo reminds me of a recent experience in Union Square, one of my favorite spots here in NYC. One day I stumbled upon a quartet of bagpipe players who were performing pop music on their instruments. They told the crowd that they came all the way from Scotland, and they were really good. I thoroughly enjoyed their performance. :-)

Hello Gert, This does look like a nice place to relax. Sitting near any body of water is soothing to me. It's an interesting mix with the scenic river, and also some urban grit on the left. I like the WS photo of the impatient duck. I often feed the turtles in Central Park's largest lake, and sometimes the ducks show up wanting the food. At least they're not as pushy as the geese. Those birds can get very forceful when they're hungry!
