    Hello John,

    I can feel the frigid temperatures and hear the howling winds conveyed in this image shot two years ago. Indeed, northeastern United States, New England, is feeling the brunt of this storm. And yet in the mid Atlantic States (here in Virginia, for example) we've had only a dusting of snow.

    Hello dear Takero,

    Your brilliantly colored, high resolution photo depicts a scene from a tradition that could be hundreds of years old. Absolutely fantastic!

    Dear Gigi,

    This is one of my favorite shots in all of Trekearth. Leonardo once said, "Observe and ponder and the commonplace will become wondrous... and the wondrous commonplace." This is a simple scene, a slice of everyday life, washing day, but it features brilliant colors, ideal resolution, and very sharp resolution.

    Warmest regards, Ghislaine, incidentally, in mid-October 2015 we hope to visit Marseille.

    The spectacular sunburst effect highlights this photo, with the prominent silhouette of Brentor Church. The murky sky adds mystique to the atmosphere.

    Ciao Luciano,

    I don't know how I missed this beauty. Busy market scenes are some of my favorite scenes, and you've captured one of the best colorful, crowded and sharp. And with an informative note, this is a first rate package.

    Hello Will,

    Framed by the dark foliage, this is such an effective presentation of the little hamlet. The note is complementary and much appreciated. The villagers must take pride in keeping the place so neat and tidy, a veritable miniature village in this photo.

    Hello Ike,

    This is one of the best shots of the amphitheater in Ashkelon. I knew about the dig, and it has restored the structure very quickly. There must be so much more in the surrounding area that an aerial infrared photo would reveal.

    Hello Malgorzata,

    As I read the note, it sounded more and more familiar. When Leonardo applied to the Court of the Sultan Beyazit II, he did introduce the idea of the pressed bow design. A scribe in the court, instead of identifying Leonardo the Florentine, described him as Ricardo the Genoan, and an entry calls him "Kafir," (unbeliever).

    Great shot. Where you on a ferry?

    Ciao Romanoi,

    A wonderful capture of Bugs Bunny playing the accordion! Was he good? Of all the street musicians I've supported with my change, I heard one in Cadiz who was a spectacular guitarist. When I took out my wallet, the smallest bill I had on me was 20 Euros. The poor man said, I will give you change. I gave him the entire 20 Euro currency. We were both happy.

    Hello Miro,

    With extreme sharpness this makes an eye catching image. The dome of the stupa appears to be covered with sort of animal hide.

    I am looking forward to one of your shots of a rope suspension bridge from Katmandu.

    Hello Costantino,

    Each photograph you send from the coast of Volos brings a happy smile to my face. I remember walking along the same coast in 1999, after returning from a drive to Meteora. This one has special magic with the red filter and a silhouette.

    Very effective shot and unusually good light management. It's evocative of a scene from the 1970s film, "Clockwork Orange."

    Hi Chris,

    A very effective and timely post. That this level of crime against humanity could have occurred in a highly sophisticated nation, and so recently has to be a lesson that we do not learn from history. The very bright light could be emblematic of more hopeful times, light at the end of the tunnel, so to speak, but I don't think so.

    Regards, Chris,

    A nicely composed and framed photo sowing the Viana do Castelo. The presence of the woman in the foreground, presumably on her mobile telephone adds to the atmosphere, the juxtaposition of the old and new.

    The low angle of the sun accentuates the topography of the hills very effectively. Now is this shortly after sunrise or shortly before sunset?

    Hello Rosemary,

    This may be the first time we are direct neighbors, and the truth is, this is one of my favorite photos from your gallery... and it is not from the African hinterland. It works perfectly with B&W, with the eyes being drawn out to the opening of the tunnel, and the shapes and patterns emerging as more important than the colors.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent
