    Hello Terez,

    I've been enjoying your photos from Fort Smith, Arkansas, after seeing your photos for years of classical archaeological sites and artwork. The note is just as comprehensive. The 19th-century furnishings are beautifully exposed, despite the backlighting. I was in Little Rock in 2011 to give a talk at the Arkansas Art Center, but did not make it to Fort Smith.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Gert,

    Fantastic shot of the book stall. I think the presence of the woman reaching to the upper shelves makes the picture superior to the other photo you had contemplated posting. The viewer is immediately pulled into examining the titles, mostly engineering, mathematics, medicine... by the shelf.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Mariusz,

    Thanks for treating us to a superb photo and an exceedingly interesting note. I did not know about Deacon Brodie, the inspiration for Jekyll and Hyde. Indeed, we take things for granted, especially in areas where we live. A highlight of my visit to Edinburgh was passing by James Clerk Maxwell's house, and a few of the sites of interest Robert Louis Stevenson dwelled. If I am in that beautiful Scottish city again, I will recognize this pub.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Serge,

    This is a spectacular detail shot from the great Cathedral of Milan. In my two books on Leonardo da Vinci, I wrote extensively about Milan. And of course, this magnificent edifice was there during Leonardo's years in Milan (1482-1499). There is statue of the great artist/engineer/scientist.

    Hello Malgorzata,

    This is a beautiful symmetric presentation of the staircase, similar to your presentation of the staircase in the bookstore in Porto. I know you are galavanting in some exotic spot on the globe. And yet, I had not see this photo (nor the real thing) in your neighboring Baltic. I had no idea when I visited Stockholm on several occasions that the Royal Palace was open — of course to select guests — but those who pay in Kroner!

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour Jean,

    One should not be surprised to peruse your latest posts and find another beauty, indeed, this would a special postcard from the pristine Pyrénées. Normally on the pages of Trekearth I am not impressed when a photo is called postcard-like, but in days of analogue photography when top photographers shot a finite number of photos for calendars and postcards, this is the type of photo that would be presented. Indeed, this is a first class calendar and postcard photo.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Ann,

    As a lifelong admirer of the poetry of Robert Burns, "the Bard of Ayrshire," I love seeing the world that inspired him. The photo is itself a piece of poetry.

    Merhaba sevgili Mesut,

    Given a choice between studying the faces of innocent young people and weathered older people, I would always prefer the innocent youth. You made a good guess about this child's thoughts, sweet and sad. It is not easy to grow up!

    Hello Gert,

    The three Baltic states, Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia have always been a source of interest for me, although I've seen only Tallinn in Estonia. And this scene resembles the Old City part of Tallinn. I met a number of ethnic Russians there, from the days of occupation. The doors in these old cities are all original and reinforced.

    The young man playing the violin may not have been very good, but anyone making an honest living I do sympathize with. I don't think I've passed a street performer within making a small contribution, and I don't think I've walked out of a books store without purchasing a book.

    Regards,

    Bulent

    Ciao Silvio,

    The narrow alleys, stone walls and towers characterize medieval Italy, as they characterize Renaissance Italy. This is an excellent shot with very good depth-of-field, with the foreground as sharp as the distant wall.

    Greetings Nicolas,

    The cascade of water roaring down the waterfalls creates a refreshing and serene scene. The shoreline of the waterfalls creates a diagonal structure from corner to corner. I like it very much, especially the brilliant green grass from late spring.

    This is a very clever composition, tightly framed, colorful. Without your explanation, however, it is an open-ended piece of art, leaving it up to the viewer to interpret.

    Hello Pavle,

    It looks like a bone-chilling day in Cuprija. In my visit to Belgrade and Zagreb 30 years ago on the same date, I remember there was quite a bit of moisture in the air and it was bone-chilling cold, penetrating cold. The curving swath made by the river cuts along the diagonal of the frame. Very good composition.

    Warm regards (pun intended).
