    Hello Wolfgang,

    It's a wonderful shot, with you woman approaching from the rear. I have fond memories of wandering around Copacabana Beach, site of our hotel, the Arena Nacional, from 11 months ago. This particular vendor I do not remember seeing, but scores of others I do remember. I also remember a man approaching me and telling me to hide my watch, "They'll kill you for that watch."

    Warm regards,

    Hello Kasia,

    This photo came up in the random order you've selected for your photos on your profile page. Shot in 2010, posted in 2013 and going into my gallery of "favorites" in 2016. "White Wedding" or "White on White," by any other name is still a rose. I fear, if I am not more selective, I could fill my entire allowance of favorites with photos you've taken. If you get a chance, take a look at some of my earlier selection of favorites. There are some beauties by Trekkies who appeared and disappeared, like this one: "World of Tomorrow."

    Hi Krzysztof,
    Indeed it's a lovely view to see that boat floating on crystal clear water and it's shadow a couple of metres below the surface. Such an isolated island would be a great place to visit. You present the ambience of Comino well.

    Hi Brenda,
    It's a huge task to move such a big model railroad to a temporary display. Just wonderful to see it there. Certainly a place I'd like to see some day. Fun to compare level of detailing between smaller structures and those tall buildings.

    One of the strangest jobs I've seen. And this landscape looks so out of this world. Touching view of this extremely hard work.

    Hi Lisa,
    Those eyes indeed have devilish look. And no doubt goats can be quite fierce on defending their territory. I have no own experience though. Dry hay, stone fence and stone chimneys look all very Scotch to me.

    Stylish carpets make fun contrast with those beaten mailboxes. You have perfect timing here. And indeed a bit of luck too with the cat passing by.

    Hello Erling,

    This is a lovely shot from the shores near Bergen. The surface of the water is as mirror-like as I can imagine. I hope that if I visit your beautiful city again (the last time was in 2010), I will get to meet you in person.

    Warm regards and have a good weekend,

    Hello Benny,

    This is the type of photo from Athens I also like very much. You captured the guards in their traditional outfits against the white marble walls. Your note is highly informative. I see that they have civilized hours to stand guard, and not eight hours at a time, every day of the week.

    Warm regards,

    Merhaba Sevgili Mesut,

    Frequently, we see photos from Gert's archives that have unusually good color and resolution, but they are Kodachrome slides. This is an excellent shot from 35 years ago shot on Ektachrome 100 and just good. Do you have your slides scanned or do you perform the process yourself?

    Warm regards, dear Mesut,

    Bonsoir Serge,

    I know the exact spot you took this photo 10 years ago. I was there last year. Cinque Terra is certainly some of the most interesting landscapes in all of Italy, and we went there from Livorno. This is a beautiful photo, with good color and resolution,

    Ciao Silvio,

    It's a wonderful shot of the hilltop village of Poggiodomo, and fresh as a loaf of bread just pulled out of the oven. I get a sense that it should be rotated about 0.1°clockwise.

    Hello Abmdsudi,

    I like the composition and the smiles the two subject exude. Pretty faces framed by windows have been subjects of paintings for hundreds of years. Take a look at the 350-year old painting Two Women in a Window by Murillo at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC.

    Have a good weekend,

    Hello Bev,

    It's an unusual photo for New York, but showing a location I've seen on the TV-series Blue Bloods. It also reminds me of a scene that takes place on the banks of the Thames in the British film, Match Point.

    Have a good weekend,

    This photo works exceedingly well in B&W, and without your note, there would be no way to know about the tower and height. I have seen some of your photos from this cemetery in the past.
