    Hello Gert,

    I am always in awe of your scanned slides, Kodachrome most likely, no other film has the color fidelity and resilience. In 1983 we were in China, I know the big cities have seen so much building, but I cannot imagine Yunnan having seen that much progress. I enjoyed the other photos you posted in support of this one.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Stephen,

    Old worn, chipped doors, their paint peeling overpainted time after time... have a certain charm. I just put this lovely shot in the group theme Old Doors. What I especially like is the street sign, Rue Blaise Pascal, a great 17th-century physicist-mathematician. You probably already know that the "pascal" is unit of pressure. It's great honor for scientists to have units named after them, e.g. newtons, farads, amperes, coulombs...

    Warm regards,

    Witaj Krzysztof,

    I see that just 12 days ago you were in Malta taking this lovely shot of the harbor. I've visited Valletta several times but did not know about Sliema. The pink car stands out prominently, and I see that people drive on the left, instead of the right as in most countries.

    Warm regards,

    Dear John,

    This wonderful photo of the Venice of Belgium shows a serene scene, a crowded boat, and the charm of this city. I hope very much to visit one day.

    Hello Kari,

    I've sailed to the North Cape along the western coast of Norway, but I know so little about the eastern areas of the Scandinavian Peninsula. I imagine this area is very very cold in the winter and covered in deep snow. Excellent photo.

    Dear Takero,

    You have taken your skills as a first class photographer of rituals and parades to Mexico. This is a lovely, colorful shot of the traditional natives, descendants of the Aztecs, with the Spanish Cathedral looming in the back. I see we are neighbors. Here it is Aug. 24, 2:00 in the morning.

    Photos of social protest are always eye-catching, but an informative note has to explain the context... and yours does! Thank you for this piece of photojournalism from the Manilla.

    Hello Rob,

    You've focused on a detail of the Calatrava creation, and it's really quite eye-catching set in front of massive buildings. We both enjoy good architecture and good art. I imagine you have visited Calatrava City of the Arts and Sciences in Valencia where some of his most organic and original work is on display.

    Now here is a scene I enjoyed for two full days. The rainbow, however, is fleeting, and I could see rainbows forming and disappearing. I would not have thought of taking a time exposure, turning the water into some sort of vapor, but it is original and eye-catching.
