    Hello dear Didi,

    As I see photos of the Loire Valley I have an irresistible urge to visit, especially to see Amboise, where Leonardo lived the last three years of his life. I like this photo very much with the old mill, and in my mind's ear I can hear the water running.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Constantino,

    I have been away from TE for a month, and I am happy to be back to see some of your marvelous shots of the Aegean Islands. Shot just 9 days ago, this image gives us a weather report along with the inviting scene.

    Hola Maria,

    Recently I saw a photo book of Buenos Aires that a friend had created. the street art is really very impressive, created by talented artists. I like this composition very much, with the young man perfectly integrated into the mural.

    Hello Noel,

    I have a dramatic shot of the two smoke stacks from the sea as our ship sailed out of the harbor. It was the end of the day, and the structures presented a gorgeous silhouette. I will share the silhouette shot as a workshop. Thanks to you, I now have the specs and the full history of the eye catching stacks. The young woman with the dog adda colorful highlight. Excellent shot, Noel.

    I am trying to convince my son and his family (wife and children) to take a week's vacation in Ireland.

    Warm regards.

    Hello May,

    The legendary Italian proclivity to build vertically, clinging to the steep walls of cliffs is no better illustrated than in this shot from Liguria. Is the town illuminated by the setting sun or rising sun? (Most likely for me, it would have been the setting sun.) What I particularly like here is the freshness of the photo, like a fresh baguette just retrieved from the oven, shot and posted on the same day.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Brenda,

    Now, who would expect to find this massive statue outside South East Asia... except in New York. The Smithsonian describes itself as "America's Attic." By extension, we might say that New York is the "World's Attic." It is good to know about this Buddha in New York.

    Hello dear Gigi,

    The man wearing in a brilliant red shirt is immersed in a sea of red tulips. It's a very good photo, eye catching and energizing. I will see the ws also.

    On 12 October we may come to Marseilles for the day. I will contact you in advance.

    Warmest regards to the family.

    Bonjour mon cher ami Philippe,

    So this is la Châtellenie de Montrésor. I had heard of it, but had never seen a photo before. It is an imposing structure that has seen a great deal of history. Your photo is first rate as usual, and complemented by an informative note.

    Warm regards and best wishes for a restful Sunday,

    There is definitely drama in the dialogue, and I imagine there can be as many interpretations and speculations as there are viewers of the scene. Excellent spontaneous photo,

    Hello dear Takero,

    I have been away from Trekearth, and I've missed seeing your marvelous photos from festivals. The beautiful Sakura Trees in Washington, a gift of the people of Tokyo to America in 1912 also blossom in early April. I saw them just last week and thought of you.

    Superb composition, Carlo. The young child at the top of the steps, photographed from below, and the couple on the side make an eye catching image. I have not visited Warsaw, but would love to see it. Have a good Sunday,

    This is a creative group photo of the young people in traditional dress, appropriately framed. The colors and resolution are excellent, but the best part is the collection of spontaneous smiles.

    Hello Stephen,

    You've presented the scene with excellent depth of field. In the foreground the water is crisp and clear, and the scene fades into the distance with good resolution. I've been to Porto in Northern Portugal, but Lamego is new to me. As usual, you've presented an informative note. Have a good Sunday,
