    Bonjour Serge,

    Lovely little canal, and sure enough, a hint of Venice. :) It definitely has a different visual, but the concept is very similar. Even this small slice of the town shows a lot of charm and inviting atmosphere. Well framed to "pull" us into the distance. I'm sure there are more than enough photo opportunities here, must be difficult to walk around and not try to capture EVERYTHING. :) Bonne journee. Take it easy.

    Amicalement,

    Jason

    Bonjour Cricri,

    Je ne me souviens pas avoir jamais vu ou entendu parler de cet arc à Florence, ce qui est vraiment dommage... c'est beau! Cela ressemble beaucoup à l'Arc du Carrousel à Paris, mais n'est sans doute pas le même...si c'est possible. :)

    Un superbe cadrage et la mise en page pour mettre en valeur sa taille dans ce cadre. Le ciel bleu et la piscine verte font de beaux compliments dessus et en dessous de cette arche. On fait vraiment apprendre quelque chose de nouveau chaque jour, et maintenant j'ai un autre élément dans la liste pour voir la prochaine fois que je visite. Profites du reste de la journée mon ami.

    Bises du désert,

    Jason

    Hello Itchy Feet,

    I've had a rough couple of days dealing with some car problems, but seeing your picture(s) put a smile on my face tonight. As much as I like this main post, it's the WS photos that really make that happen. :)

    I didn't know you had taken so many pictures of us, but that one epitomizes just how well Serghei treated us, and as the saying goes "That's what friends are for." :)) Not specifically to hold an umbrella of course, but you know what I mean. ha

    Thanks for continuing to share those, it's fun to see yourself on the other side of the lens...so I now have a much better idea of how goofy I really look! :)

    All of these places I missed in and around Moscow, I'll just simply have to return. Keep 'em coming, and I'll try to keep pace. Have a great day ahead. And with that, I end my day on a high note. Take it easy.

    Friendliest wishes from Az.,

    Jason

    Hey B'vitch,

    Hmmm, is that Russian, or too closely related to "Beavis?" lol If so, I say we team up...I'm o.k. with being Butthead, so we're good to go! :)

    Bet you can't guess why I like this one so much...yep, it's that faint light trying to sneak its way around the building for a peek at your lens. Hey, how does it feel being on the other side of creepy big guy? hehe

    O.K., o.k., I lied, it's all about the blue of course. Wow, kick in the face cool! Not only is the plethora of color right up my alley (there's an easy one for ya'), but this is a quintessential Dentonesque composition. Love the straight edges and sleek viewpoint, you sure know how to take the common and turn it proper! As Craig said, big impact! Awesome result my rain soaked friend, great modern expressionism from your eyeballs. :) Have a good one. Take it easy.


    Cheers from across the big blue,

    Jasonovitch Cowlingski. Da!

    Salut Edward,

    I wasn't sure what I was looking at from the smaller thumbnail image, but the enlargement reveals quite an interesting image that definitely should make one stop and take a closer look.

    Whether this was planned or not, that being this particular gentleman, the reflection really makes an artistic point in this imagery. I find myself going back and forth between that, and the sharp detail of the aqua colored bottles. A fun mixture of elements and colors, well conceived...or just plain fortunate. Either way, it worked! :) Clever title too. Bonne journee. All the best.

    Friendly regards,

    Jason

    Hi Costantino,

    What an endearing photo, and perfect timing to capture this ladys smiling expression. Such dedication to care for her street, and the pride shines through. Although white is the dominant color, the accents of green and blue make a big impact on this scene...but most importantly, it's her presence that makes us all feel welcome. :) Simply lovely! Have a great day ahead. All the best.

    Hi Danos,

    What a gorgeous display of emerald greens and pink hues, this is a delightful color scheme. Not too often we see pictures from here at this hour, so it's a refreshing take on the famous falls. Beautiful and powerful no matter what time of day or night, but the soft light and tones in the sky give this a special enchantment. The boat makes for a perfect additional element in the scene. I can virtually feel the mist from here. :) Thanks for providing us with a soothing visual and a great way to end the day. Take good care. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Burak,

    Before I even noticed the location, I thought "Hmmm, this looks a lot like my region" and sure enough, it is! :) I've seen many views like this, and still enjoy the open spaces...but sure do miss some color though!? Well, there's plenty of it to be had once you reach the canyon, so we know it's close. Thanks for taking us along for the ride. Have a great day. All the best.

    Guten tag Wolfgang,

    After the last couple of days, I feel the same way...but unfortunately don't look as decorative as this cow. :) If I had to wear that thing all day, I'd be pretty tired and want to lay down as well. This is a fun scene, full of many others going about their business on the hillside, like a giant family gathering, and this picture makes me feel like I'm right in the middle of it. Watch where you step though! :) Have a great day ahead. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    a fascinating trip no doubt, and this shot sums up the cold so aptly. It looks beautiful and must have been an exhilarating to experience.

    Wonderful! - just hope the cold stays north of the Arctic Circle this winter though.

    Hello Craig
    Yep! know how you feel about getting up early when in a place like this, especially if the Ouzo was flowing the night before. But when you get results like this it is so worthwhile and the light is all soft and almost cuddly too! Workshop pictures are wonderful and the hotel view just amazing. I stayed in Perissa in the south of the island so did not have a view like this every morning. I travelled only once to Oia in a hire car and despite early morning it was busy and I think I got the last parking space. Would probably stay in Oia if I did the trip again as I have no sunset/night pictures and imagine the place is a tad quieter in the evening.

    Captivating - no matter how many times I see the views from here.

    a great follow on shot from yesterday's post. This is a fascinating piece of engineering and seeing it working here makes it all the more compelling. Must be all the more exciting if you are in a narrow boat negotiating this marvellous way of overcoming one of nature's obstacles.
