    Bonjour Denis,

    The crowded view of beached boats is genuinely eye-catching. Moreover, the depth-of-field is excellent, in the foreground and the distance all in focus.

    Hello Paul,

    This is a beauty! I am not surprised that one would see an eye-catching flower arrangement in Belgium (and Holland) the perspective you've chosen shows the originality of the display. Moreover, the exposure is ideal.

    Hello Lars,

    The light following a shower is frequently the most desirable for photography. This is a beauty, revealing the details of the windmill a relative teenager at 106 years of age, although the infants of the technology are the Millennial Giants (e.g. those in Palm Springs, California).

    Hello Stephen,

    I like this image of smoke, fire, and a favorite nut. I have never seen the process of harvesting cashews, although I must admit that the cashews I had in Thailand were far tastier than those I've had in the United States (that is also true of pistachios from Turkey and Iran compared with those of California). These cashews are most likely similar to those in Thailand.

    In seeing this photo of the far north islands of Faroe... when I see this image, I think of Viking longboats and terror emerging from the fog. Great photo.

    Hello Gyorgi,

    This is a gorgeous panoramic view of the flowers and fields, but perhaps the most dramatic aspect is the direct capture of the sun without creating a silhouette of the foreground.

    Dear John,

    A colorful carpet of tulips, sorted by color. Sometimes there is so much political correctness. I wonder if anyone will call this "a segregation of tulips by color." It is also a very good demonstration of one point perspective.

    Hello Jean,

    This is a wonderful photo of the most photogenic city in the world. I've been there at least a dozen times and can't get enough of it. You had a wet and overcast day, but even under these conditions, the place has its charm.

    Hello Ray,

    As always, your note is informative. I had no idea that Spain turned over authority to Mexico in 1818, presumably in most of California. As I look at the style of Carmel Mission I see that it looks more modern than most of the other missions. The Quadrangle and bell tower are indeed missing.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Alexandre,

    A wonderfully color shot from Northeast Brazil. The unusually shaped sails appear to be from bending of the top of the mast. They appear to be extremely shallow bottom boats. The photo is ideally composed.

    Our recent visit to Brazil included Recife, Salvador da Bahia, Fortaleza, Iguazu and, of course, Rio de Janeiro. I was supposed to give a talk at the University of Sao Paolo, but it fell through because of incompatibilities in our schedules. We loved all that we saw.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Craig,

    It's a pleasure to see the city from this vantage point, very close to where my friends live. The beautiful harbor, I believe, is where the tall boats dock before one of their races. I look forward to seeing some of your other photos from Norway.

    Magnificent photo, Silvio. The red poppies in the foreground serve to introduce the ancient, octagonal bell tower. I want very much to visit Spoleto and see some of the sites you have treated us to over the years.

    Hello Gert,

    Showing just the rise (at 52) of the edge, along with the crowd of visitors comprises an excellent composition. It was the precision in squaring off the building blocks that has allowed these edifices to survive over 4500 years. Your photo shows the rich colors and texture of the scene, one can appreciate the size of the massive stones. I have visited the site three times as a child, as a post-doctoral member of the Physics Department at U-Cal, Berkeley, and as a retired professor of physics just three years ago. A photo of me and my parents, sitting on camels six decades ago, was so exciting for the camel herdsmen on my last visit, that they collaborated in recreating the scene of my wife and me on camels.

    Here you have juxtaposed the colorful and the dark (purple flowers and the silhouette of the barbed wire), the fragile and the solid (petals of flowers and the wire), signs of life and the deadly (the bees and rusted barbed wire)... Very effective, Paja,

    Hello Ally,

    Although I visited several cities in China, I did not get to TianShou to see the Ming Tombs. So this is the approach to the area of the tombs where thousands of pottery soldiers stand guarding the Emperor. I understand, they know where the Emperor's tomb is located but have not excavated it yet.

    Warm regards,
