    Interesting Indian scene with the colorful step occupants, ancient wood boats anchored, and the pink tower looking a bit out of place? Then a glimpse of the waterfront architecture fading into the distance.

    Well done,

    I like this diagonal view of the Miami enabling longer inclusion of the classical Moorish structure. The pointed arches dominate, and a glimpse of a octagon tower in the back.
    Certainly artistic architecture worthy of protecting and saving.

    Interesting blend of medieval castle ruins being taken over by Nature. The trees are covering every possible living place including the ruin tops. Sometimes letting Nature reclaim territory is a valid and worthy way approach.

    Interesting Dublin scene with the orange Beetle dominating the grey toned antique brick road lined with classical buildings.
    My first car was a 1967 Beetle, with the classical chrome tubular bumpers.
    In California our license plates are 7 digits in a mixture of alpha and numeric codes. They are assigned by time, with the codes in ascending order as they become available.

    Fine view of the electric historical trolley car, looking sturdy and reliable, with bicyclist following.
    In the future perhaps a self contained battery electric tram will be created? These guys require overhead electric lines for power.

    Fine view of the century old Earnslaw, looking regal and still fit, moving on Lake Wakatipu waters.
    I am attracted to historical boats, ships, and anything transportation, etc.
    Would enjoy traveling on this classic surrounded by Nature's scenery.

    Gidday Cottesloelisa,

    Once again I am impressed by one of your surf clubs' architecture, enhanced by the golden light upon the classical structure with steps leading towards the sea.

    In California our surf clubs are often 'on the go' meetings at a sandy beach, or at a restaurant, or simple apartment.

    The rock boulders and ancient pier with classic Vespa, create a fine foreground, then the water crossing to the mountainside of Leros classical buildings, with a relaxing fishing boat.

    Howdy Gert,

    I do notice in your pier side view of Sinop, a glimpse on the right of what appears to be of more ancient construction?
    Too bad Sinop doesn't take advantage of its wind and build off shore electric wind mills. But then this would reduce the excitement of a nuclear generator?
    Well done,

    Excellent dunes view, with the sand textures and details up close in the foreground, receeding into the smooth hills, then topped with the dramatic colorful cloud sunrise.
    By getting to the Dunes at sunrise you can photograph the patterns of Nature, minus human footprints, etc.

    Another Leros attraction, the fishing boats with nets and gear, and kids, lining the dock, then the classical buildings going up the mountain side.
    Santorini gets a lot of advertising, but your Leros views stimulate urges to explore.

    We normally only get to see the iconic Leaning Tower of Pise, and you give us a treat with the Dumo, ancient and very elaborate, pyramid facid of columns and arches, and topped with dominate artistic dome.

    From the thumbnail view I thought you had captured the family in silhouette on a hill top, looking into the harsh sun. Well I was right, exept for it being a larger than life statue depiction. Regardless of the politicking, it enhances the landscape.
