    Hi Takero
    now this is another one of those interesting Japanese festivals, hard to imagine participating in one of these :)
    I have a question....how DO you get to participate in them? Do you have to sign up? is there a limit? Is there preparation involved?

    wonderful capture of human emotion, this is what you're best at. Too bad you can't photograph them this year though.
    cheers

    Hi Huub
    nothing better than this right?
    these old historic towns and cities are just begging for photographers to spend time here.
    love that you decided to leave the sky OUT, and just focus in on the homes and the boats. So much historic charm and rustic elegance here. Its a lovely shot
    cheers

    Hi Jan
    what the heck is this!
    It would be cool to get an inside view of this Expo as well, but its just as cool to see the outside structure.
    Looks like SpiderMan was here not too long ago :)

    fun post, something we don't get to see very often at all on TE.

    Hi Marisuz
    Edinburgh! A city which I want to see and to explore.
    Interesting story and history with the name of the Hotel, I like to live a much more simple sort of lifestyle :)

    seems like the Family life is really making an impact on your photography, you mention it alot in most of your notes.
    Family comes first right! and now i'm sure the subjects of your photo shoots change as well.

    cool post as you look UP, even in this harsh lighting it looks fine. See you around!
    Cheers

    Hi Mesut
    I'm sure this was a proud moment for the man :)
    and it looks like the children are having lots of fun too.
    a fine family moment. I wonder if they would actually like to have a copy of the photo! I bet they would.
    cute post!

    Hi Ourania
    I like how you described this as a rich blend!
    Athens is a very densely populated city, and here is further proof of that.
    this collage-jigsaw-puzzle format is the most fun way to examine a photo. There is so much jam packed into the frame, so much to take a look at from each corner.

    fun capture all around

    Hi Eleu
    we don't get to see many of these nature type of photos in your gallery, so this is a sweet surprise.

    I like how the scene fades away into the depths from the left to right, its very attractive that way.

    wonderful looking clouds too, and the reflections a total bonus. Hope your surgery went well.

    Hi Malgo
    great to see that you were able to find some sort of Internet access in Cuba...its very difficult isn't it! :)
    strange that such places still exist in todays world!

    wonderful looking natural shot of these school children enjoying a true heart felt moment with you.

    great to see the different facial expressions on each of the four girls. Have fun!!!!!

    Bonjour Jean,
    very challenging light but a very impressive effect! The shaded area have such pleasant well saturated colors. In particular reflection is so vivid and feels so real! The sun lit fragment which appears behind is an anchor with reality.
    Fantastic composition with well thought through foreground and nice diagonals in the distance. In between we see lovely tree silhouettes.
    Excellent work!!

    Hi Ana
    this old event is getting more and more creepy with every photo! Its hard to even imagine such a festival. And how did the locals react to these weird people messing up their village? so strange but well worth the photos and history tour!

    Hi Abmdsudi,
    it was quite a challenge to balance the exposition in those two such different worlds. You managed it very well: we can appreciate some ornamental details of the interior and the outer world. Great idea indeed. The photographer always adds a nice touch.
    Excellent work,

    Oh man, I love this one. I wish we could see more photos like this here on TE, I think they are under appreciated.
    crusted walls, tonnes of texture, lots of history, abandonment, it has it all. fine post

    Hi Jean Claude
    its almost like you LIVE at the Fairgrounds :)
    you enjoy posting these shots, and I enjoy viewing them.
    No movement in this one, but its a complete full frame view from side to side and top to bottom. With a hint of blue hour along the bottom it adds a bit of colour, sweet shot
