What a great view! I like the bit of water in the foreground, and all of the vibrant colors. The architecture really is beautiful, and there seem to be a lot of people enjoying the sunny, blue skies.
Cooling off with a Beer, Tower Bridge by tyro (21726)

This is a beautiful combination of architecture and daily life. The sharpness and colors are wonderful. The details on the towers are really great; I don't think I've seen them from this close before. Since we don't have any bridges like this here in NYC, it's very interesting to actually think more about this kind of construction, where you essentially have small buildings sitting atop a busy bridge. This is a really great view. :-)

Hello Mr. Creepy, ;-)
I've heard about the high temps in Washington state, so I guess BC is having the same weather since it's just to the north. This fountain does look very refreshing. I like that there is one boy by himself on the left side. The splashes made by the children's feet are also a fun detail. Stay cool. :-)

I like what you created with the curved platform. I'm always looking for these kinds of shots when I'm in the subway, but usually the lighting is terrible, or there are too many people in the frame. I'm surprised that a station in Japan would seem so empty. I remember visiting Kyoto in the past, and it being a beautiful city. I hope all is well with you and your family. :-)

I like this interesting photo, together with the informative note. The tight cropping allows us to really see the textures and colors of the rocks. I also like that you included a bit of the blue water in the upper left part of the frame. Mother Nature definitely creates some wonderful and quirky things for us to enjoy.

This is an interesting title for an interesting photo. Not only have I recently learned about these hot springs, but now I see that people actually cook in them. I guess it's the easiest way to boil some eggs. :-) The woman doesn't seem bothered by all the steam. I like the different foods on display for us to see. Thanks for the WS photos, too.

I've been enjoying your NYC photos, but I picked a Canadian one to critique. :-) I really like the blue light, and the patterns on the ground. With the longer exposure we get some ghostly people walking by, which is always nice. :-) Colorful night photos are fun to take, and to look at.

The Blue Lagoon is such a magical place. So far I have only seen it through TE photos, and it's nice to see it again. The color of the water is so unique, and it looks great against the stark white and gray landscape that surrounds it. I've seen lot of photos with people enjoying a dip in the water, but this view with no people has a special feeling to it. It seems like you've found a hidden planet where nobody lives. Really we know that there are lots of people close by. :-)
Obashi house by PaulVDV (24189)

I was lucky enough during my two trips to Japan to actually stay with four different families in their homes. One house looked very much like the one in your photo. I ate at the same kind of table, and slept on a futon over a tatami mat. They even had a similar garden. It's great to see this traditional interior once again, with the added bonus of the colorful fabrics hanging in the middle. I do miss Japan...
