    Hi Boa
    great looking shot from India.
    love these busy street scenes.
    there's always something to spot and to investigate.
    the old cars surprise me a bit as the photo was taken in 1989, not 1959!
    awesome post

    love the height of it, love the colors, love the fireworks and the bridge is the icing on the cake.

    Hey Jason
    well, look who's back on the prowl...like a cougar searching for a cub...and i'm not talking about the animals lol

    good to have you back on TE again.

    I guess this is the real life of today, in the 21 century isn't it.

    I still believe in my heart that THIS WILL PASS.
    in the future, say 100 years in the future, we will ALL be laughed at - sort of how we look at the medeival times today.

    These cell phones are just the beginning...and something much better, even more interactive is going to rear its ugly head - making the 'cell phone' look like a bow and arrow to todays soldier.

    know what i mean?
    what do you think?

    fun capture though, brings up alot of discussion...which is kinda ironic because nobody is talking in the photo lol

    Titans are looking good for a top 5 pick in the draft!!!

    see you around

    Hi Serghei
    this is one of those cute everyday life street shots.
    very cool indeed.
    I like how there are patches of bright colors, and it looks like they're mixed with alot of greys.

    funny hot its seems like most people in this scene are looking to the left...whats going on to the left that has everyone's attention?

    fun shot

    Hi Vincent
    yeah, he's not looking too pleased with you at all.

    was it a tele lens? were you far away from him?

    the look on his face is priceless.

    Hi Gert,

    Sounds quite like a trip anyone would enjoy, virtually footloose and carefree. :) Isn't it amazing how much more is extracted from the experience when it's not as stressful or under a time crunch?

    A beautiful shot, full of interesting details surrounding this lovely local, right down to her bowl of soup. And I couldn't agree more, I too find these simple, unassuming daily life images to be the most intriguing...and I'm glad you've shared so many of them here for us to enjoy as well. Hope all is going well. Take good care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Ciao Luciano,

    Ahh yes, this is a "lousat" kind of scene/subject for sure! :) And why not, it's beautiful. When nature provides the canvas, it makes our jobs easy, right? lol Palm trees, blue sky, sand and surf...you bet, not a surprise one would want to photograph a place like this. Plain and simple, and the enticement is well conveyed. Hope all is well. Take it easy.

    Friendly wishes,

    Hi Saša,

    As the saying goes, good things come in small packages. :) A beautiful close-up of this little guy, the sharp focus and detail is impressive. And the shallow depth of field keeps full concentration on the birds features and colors. Something we see every day, but when presented as a main subject, takes on a new appeal. Very well done to catch this opportunity...these little ones are always quick to move! :) Hope all is well. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Bonjour Claude,

    This is undoubtedly a shot which is instantly recognizable as yours from the gallery. :) A simple daily life scene, but seen and presented with much more than a snapshot of interest...you have a great ability to take the "routine' and make it appealing. Love the strong combination of colors and human interest. As always, tres bien fait! Hope all is well. Take good care.

    Amicalement,

    Hi Danos,

    A defiant pose from this mannequin, and it's a good thing he's been placed outside on the balcony to get some sun...looks rather pale, don't you think? lol

    A fun shot, something out of the ordinary which infuses some humor into the every day life of passers by. The touch of graffiti and broken facade gives this a rugged appeal. Nicely spotted and taken. Hope all is going well. Take care.

    Bonsoir Jean,

    Always a challenge to photograph something so iconic in a new way, but this accomplishes that feat with great allure. A beautiful spread of seasonal lights to accompany the hint of the Eiffel Tower. Instantly recognizable, but framed and taken with fresh intrigue. Hope all is well. Take care.

    Hi Gerrit,

    I often see many people selling oranges/fruit along the sides of the roads where I live, but they're usually confined to the bed of a truck...this is a much grander and widespread display. Quite the spread, and surely makes for a colorful scene of daily life. Indeed, looks like a good harvest, I only hope his sells were just as much. A fine angle taken to show the vast amounts of product. Hope all is going well. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Gert, Impressive view of this old cannon and other staff left from the war. maybe not as dangerous as the landmines in Laos. The guy probably forgot about the cruelties of the war and can smile.
    I prefer in fact the Workshop photo, the broader view with some women in lovely conical hats.

    Hey Lisa
    so sad, no words will be able to put it into the correct context. to be honest i'm even struggling for words right now as i write this note.

    One of our soldiers died a few weeks ago as you've probably heard, in a similar type of incident.

    is it just me or was the world NOT like this about 10-15 years ago?

    Hi Craig, Burano is so photogenic that you could post hundred photos easily. I am surprised that there were only few people there. You chose nice quite square. Nice hydrangea and strane this pump here. Do the people take water to homes or is it only to water these flowers. Burano is so unique that even no need to give the name - one sees it at once. But it is impossible to get lost in Burano, it is small charmer.

    Hi Paul
    another beauty from Tokyo.
    as much as I love the city scenes, these unique shots are just as great.

    the black areas of the frame are actually the most important, it allows the lights to shine and shine brightly.

    and I really appreciate the curve, the flow of the lights in the frame too.
    excellent shot
