    Hej Boia,
    Kul bild. Du har blivit rätt bra på den här typen av enkla iakttagelser i vardagen, lite i samma stil som vår tyske vän. Damens öl ser verkligen lite avslagen ut jämfört med den jättestora på affischen. Absolut en bild med en liten knorr.
    God Jul till dig också.

    Hello Anna,
    I wish you too Happy Holidays. You send us very nice greetings with this fine building on a perfect day in winter. The few colors are beautiful and the sharpness is perfect.

    Hello Ourania,
    It's a pity that the neglect of the building has been allowed to go quite a long way. This must have been a beautiful building with those bright colours, and in a way it still is. The humble Christmas decoration shows that people here still care at least about their own apartment. It sends a message that where there is life there is hope.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Romano,
    A fine photo with superb colours, contrasts and sharpness.I hope this fine old industrial building will not be destroyed or too neglected. So many have been beautifully converted into hotels, shopping malls, conference centres or art galleries. I like that much better than the total decay.
    Kind regards,

    Hi Frank,
    I am surprised to see so much snow, but of course this is at a very high altitude. Here in Gothenburg we have absolutely nothing... Checking the map I realise that we have been here, but at a very different season. This view is also very beautiful!

    Hello Craig,
    This is a fine combination of well known elements of Oia and ordinary life in the street. It doesn't matter that the lady is looking away, since she doesn't do it in a very obvious and "provocative" way that could have spoiled the photo. Both of them serve their "purpose" as props very well. You didn't have much time for this but at least enough for a decent exposure in the difficult light.
    Best regards,
    Gert

    Hello Leslie,
    Except for the cars and some minor details this view couldn't have changed very much for the last half century. It looks like the eternal English small town. Very nice and cosy, especially at this time of the year with the Christmas decorations and the cosy yellow streetlights. Just for once the wires obstructing the view are well used.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hi Harriet,
    This is indeed a very grey picture but I can find some colour spots on the boats here. I can agree with you, November was certainly a very grey month, but in my experience, it always is! A very good picture with the long lines of poles in the calm water.

    Hi John,
    I guess we are all dreaming of springtime now, when days are so short. But soon we will see the sun returning. A very beautiful view indeed, I was here in 1958 (but that particular day it was raining...) I particularly enjoy the red flower that breaks the green "monotony".

    The strong blue wall and the bright green window shutters are important parts of this picture but the inclusion of people really enhances the scene.

    Hello Ryszard,
    Staircases are a very popular theme here. This is a good one, mainly thanks to the very fine light, but also because of the two persons in blue and red, as well as the paintings on the lower wall. The sharpness is also outstanding.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Luciano,
    The title already says what needs to be said. Colors and life. I can add that the couplers are very pleasant, partly thanks to the cloudy sky, and that there is a lot of life here, of all kinds. The church and the other buildings are all remarkably beautiful. This must be a great place to go looking for street-shots.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Carlo,
    A fine photo of tired tourists from an unusual POV. Everyone who has ever done any sightseeing knows the relief to sit down for a while. These people seem to carry so much with them. No wonder they need a rest. The diagonal position of the bench is another reason why this is such a nice composition.
    Kind regards,

    A great photo of the beautiful church, the bridge and the ordinary houses, which also look very nice. The colours are good, although the light was getting weaker. It's just a slight pity that there are so many wires going across the view.
