    Hello Serghei,

    We should start a group theme about subjects in windows. Well composed, sharp and colorful shot.

    Warm regards from San Diego, California, where it is 1.40 at night.

    Hello Stephen,

    As I posted my last photo, I realized I was in the company of good friends — you, Malgorzata, Serghei and Philippe... Recently, I watched a documentary about the revival of Liverpool, and this building was among the structures featured. Your photo and note adds to the information that I picked up from the docementary.

    Warm regards,

    Bonjour, mon cher ami Philippe,

    You've managed the light well despite the sunlight coming from the back. It is a pleasure to see you as a neighbor today. I am in San Diego, where it is the ungodly hour of 1.26 in the morning.

    Amicalement,

    Hello Brenda,

    I appreciated this post at three levels: (1) the artistic (or lack of) quality, (2) your essay (excellent), and (3) the observations contributed by my friends. I personally like the colors.

    Hello Eleu,

    This is a gorgeous shot of the 57 year old Chevy Bel Air. I remember it well, although I would have guessed it to be a Chevy Biscayne. The souped up car has the massive carburetor requiring a cutout in the hood. I had never known how such air intakes were accommodated.

    Without the children frolicking at the base of the columns, this would be only an architectural portrait. But it is now a stroll down memory land.

    Hello Rosemary,

    The bronze statue with verdigris patina (my favorite) creates a monochrome photo in the foreground against the rich golden hues of the Cathedral in the background — also in monochrome. It's a well chosen perspective. Your note is first rate, as always.

    A most engaging personal note to accompany the Lilliputian beach huts. It may be at random, and it may still be the ordering by a physicist, but the wavelengths of these colors are from short to long wavelengths.

    Hello Malgo,

    Your essay is thoughtful and engaging, and a highly complementary expression to accompany the well composed shot. I would love to see Lake Baikal in person, and feel like I am just following in your tracks (I am in San Diego, California, on my way to Honolulu and then the interminable crossing to Auckland — first across the equator, then across the International Dateline).

    Hello Paul,

    Your wise choice of a vertical format presents the drama of this rugged countryside. Johnny Carson, the great late night television star, would have echoed the title you've chosen for the scene, "I'm not afraid of heights, I'm afraid of widths.

    The presence of the worshiper in this photo is the clue to its success. Without his contemplative expression, this would be just another architectural photo, but it is much more.

    Hello Brian,

    What a dramatic view of the three tall ships. Instead of the modern architecture you have in the background, if you had just a misty river scene (perhaps hard to find on the Thames) this would make and excellent period painting, reminiscent of a Turner.
