    Bonjour Claude,

    I'm not sure if I'd like to be listening to the Rolling Stones when I'm out for a walk in the countryside - I prefer just to admire the surroundings and perhaps listen to some birdsong - but I can appreciate how that song fits in perfectly with your lovely photograph of two of your walking companions taking shelter unfer their colourful umbrellas.

    And these umbrellas are indeed colourful - and multicoloured - and complement well bright red clothing of these two ladies too. I like how the two ladies are looking down at you and I also like how, between them, we can just see a little chink of the countryside and path along which you were walking: the weather doesn't look too good!

    A lovely well composed and close-cropped photograph with lovely soft light and fabulous vibrant colours (doesn't dull wet weather really bring out the vibrancy of colours?), perfect exposure and stunning depth of field and sharpness.

    Fabulous!

    Amicalement,

    John.

    Hi Craig,

    I'm not sure how I missed this one - or, rather, these three lovely photographs.

    Those old red tramcars really are a delight and you have made the very most of them in this trio of pictures. Pity about the lack of snow but there's not a heck of a lot you could have done about that.

    All three are delightful compositions and, though I'm impressed by your HDR image, I think I prefer the other two actually. But all are perfectly and pleasingly composed and in each the red tram takes pride of place and, also in each, the inclusion of lots of interesting people adds to the appeal.

    Again, lovely light and colours and exceptional technical quality.

    Brilliant!

    Cheers,

    John.

    Hi Craig,

    As always, you've written an interesting note and so now I'm looking forward to seeing some pictures from that old abandoned factory as well as some old cars too.

    But this is a delightful shot which is actually enhanced by the dull weather and the dark and moody sky. That bright blue and white boat stands out beautifully against its much darker background and its reflections on the calm water in the foreground are divine. Have you ever noticed how dull wet weather really brings out the saturation of colours?

    A lovely shot with gorgeous soft light, fine vibrant colours and exquisite details and sharpness.

    Beautiful!

    Kind Regards,

    John.

    Another fine shot of a structure standing tall against a splendid sky. Fine details and composition. Good match in colours between the man and the tower- both sporting black and white. Regards. Klaudio.

    Zdravo Kasia. Sweet family shot and inshallah the kids will grow up with a father, although I do worry about hid level of fitness compared to the lithe IS types portrayed on the propaganda film clips. Excellent outdoor family shot that shows affection and a bit of bravado. Pozdrav. Klaudio.

    Hello Kasia,
    My latest photo showed just a nice street, this on shows just a nice family. It's a good photo which seems to have captured their individual attitudes and characters very well. It becomes an interesting photo, more than just a family portrait, along with the note. They probably illustrate the problems facing so many families in this region, where very ordinary inter-marriages have made lives complicated because of political developments. I can sense the woman's worry at being a refugee with her kids, having her husband in the not very capable Iraqi army.
    As usual your WS photos are also very nice. Among them I prefer the one with the kids at the citadel and the view of the city. It gives us a little of everything.
    So now you are off on another journey again, and you only had time so far to post one single photo from Nepal. You are almost even more hopeless than Malgo. ;-)
    Have a good time, and stay safe.
    Gert

    Hello dear Mesut,

    What a very appropriate photograph and note to post on this, the day of the 70th anniversary of the liberation of the Auschwitz death camp.

    The dull and dreary weather adds to the atmosphere of this shot as also does the solitary figure standing amidst the rows of concrete "stelae" but, as you say, the lines of bright, fresh and colourful trees in the background do indeed breathe an element of hope into this very thoughtfully taken image.

    Perfect!

    Kind Regards,

    John
