    Greeting Stephen,

    Your postcard-like photo of the monument and fountain is augmented by a detailed note. I like both components very much. How clear the sky is!

    Hello Eleni,

    I like the charming postcard from Ydra. On Patmos and on Santorini, I sympathized endlessly with these animals for the tourists they had to carry up steep slopes. The fatter the tourist, the less they seemed to care about these beasts of burden. What did these creatures do in a previous life to deserve such fates!

    Regards, Eleni,

    Hello Malgo,

    Although backlit, the image is dramatic as an almost-silhouette against the mountains and the the big sky. As usual your travelogue package of photo and note are much appreciated.

    Hello Gosia, my neighbour today !
    The capture itself is well balanced and quite interesting but it would be just great if you could add a little bit more information about what is what. Specially for those (like me) who do not know the christian iconography !

    Hello Wolfgang,

    Your photo, presumably from a cruise ship sailing into Venice, was initially confusing to me, but then I realized the veritable symmetry created by the appearance the Chiesa Santa Maria del Rosario and the Santa Maria di Pieta. Either it was the same architect, or there was conspiracy in creating this symmetry. In any event, I like very much the informative note you've provided for this excellent photo.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Brenda,

    With the Empire State Building rising on the top left, and the gorgeous pink flowers anchoring the bottom, there is a most appealing atmosphere in the photo, maybe the idea that spring is finally upon us. Six months from now I may be envious of friends Down Under welcoming the spring, but in the meantime it is a pleasure to see scenes like this.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Andrew,

    I thought you had been absent for an unusually long period. It's good see you back. Your note here is at least as appealing as this photo. The man sitting on the dock is placed in an ideal spot in the frame, and the B&W format lends mystique to the atmosphere.

    Hello Beverley,

    I like very much the way you've framed the Windermere with the overhanging branches. It is a gray day, and apparently devoid of any winds, but the intrepid sailors are no doubt having fun, but cursing the lack of breeze and the limp sails.

    Regards,

    Dear Gigi,

    The endless rows of tulips converging in the distance are inviting after a hard winter. I see that you shot the photo two weeks ago, and submitted it to TE last week. I am briefly in Istanbul, but am scheduled to return to the United States in two days. I wish I could come through France. My warmest regards to your growing family. And a Happy Belated Easter.

    Merhaba Murat Bey,

    This is the type of photo that Architectural Digest, especially with the accompanying note. There is a relaxed and civilized atmosphere with the open doors allowing a glimpse into the adjoining dining room.

    After arriving in Istanbul on April 17, I gave a talk at Istanbul Modern on April 18. But scheduled to fly back to DC in two days, it seem impossible to include a visit to Dolmabahçe before I leave on April 23. Today I must make a required visit to the Covered Bazaar.
