    Hello Engin,
    With this photo we can remember the warmer days of summer. :-) It doesn't look too crowded, but the sand also seems a bit rocky. It's nice to see some buildings in the distance, and all of the colorful umbrellas on the shore.

    Ciao Luciano,
    Bahia looks like such a colorful and vibrant place. I remember becoming interested in this part of Brazil after learning about the great singer Caetano Veloso, who is from Bahia. :-) I like all of the activity, and the charming, colorful facades. The old church is also very nice. I'm sure there were so many things to photograph in Bahia.

    Hello Costantino,
    It's true that the spirit of Christmas and the holidays can lift our moods. Your photo shows some of that spirit, with the red decorations on the tree, and the red carpet on the sidewalk. I can even see the red Coca Cola sign that matches the Christmas colors. :-) A very Merry Christmas to you!

    Hello Craig,

    This photo is definitely fun, both because of the pink color, and the two woman hanging laundry at the same time. I see there is also a purple house next door. Those colors are not my favorites, but they make for a good photo. :-)

    BTW, I saw that you have a photo dedication from Greece. I don't want you to miss it. :-)

    Hello Murat,
    This is a lovely view of all the trees. Here in NYC many people buy their trees from open-air lots around the city - even from vendors on the sidewalk - and I was thinking about tree buyers around the world. I like the small path in the center that leads us further into the room. Everything looks so festive. :-)

    Hello Aleksander,
    What a fun idea! I think more cities should have giant, living snow-globes like this one. :-) I like the small child in the foreground who is admiring the scene. This brought a smile to my face. Merry Christmas to you! :-)

    Hello Mesut,
    What a strange detail! It does have a graphic quality, and it tells us something about society: there are still many smokers, and they put their cigarette butts in unusual places!! I like the square presentation, with all of the tinier squares inside.

    Hello Eleu,
    This is a beautiful winter shot. The horses are so majestic, and I like the warm sunlight. I'm guessing that the main horse is actually on lower ground, or else he would be sinking into a giant pile of snow! It's amazing that these horses can survive in this wild and challenging environment and look so strong and healthy.

    Hello Serghei,
    That's an interesting POV. Were you down on the floor?? I'm sure some of the passengers must have wondered what you were doing. :-) The train doesn't look too crowded, and that one leg sticking out is an amusing detail.

    Hola Pili,
    Como mucha gente aquí en TE ya sabe, me gustan mucho los reflejos, especialmante los que se encuentra en la ciudad. Tu composición, con la catedral muy linda y la lámpara, es muy buena. Tiene un sentido surrealista, como un sueño. Me gusta mucho. :-)

    Hello Ian,
    I saw this sea of flowers on television, and it is very poignant. Thanks for also showing it from your POV. I'm so sad for the two innocent victims and their families. It was such a senseless crime...

    Ciao Luciano,
    It was great that you noticed the colors of this facade. We can tell right away that this photo is from Spain. :-) The black shutters and old-fashioned street lamp are also very charming. Beautiful sharpness and a nice crop, too.

    I like this modern view. The skyscrapers are very attractive, with all of the glass and clean lines. I also like that you included a bit of greenery at the bottom of th frame. Nice reflections, too!

    Hello Ra,
    The distortion caused by the rain could be a metaphor for life. Each one of us sees the world through his or her own filter. Sometimes a point of view can also be distorted. There is something very artistic about this photo. It seems more like a poem than a photograph.

    Rome is a romantic city, so why not smooch on the famous Spanish Steps for everyone to see - and photograph!? :-) It's fun to look at all the different people. I'm also drawn to the woman in the middle who's trying to get some nice photos of her own.

    Hello Boa,
    This is an interesting oldie with lots of action. I especially like the old blue car, and the ad on top promising a free cassette with each purchase. I still have a box of old cassette tapes, but they will probably never be used again. :-) I hope you're having a good holiday season so far.

    Hello Malgo,
    This landscape is amazing. It almost looks a monochrome, except for some muted colors, and the cemetery gates in the foreground really grab my attention. I'm not sure if those are bare trees on the closer mountain, but whatever they are, the dark bits with less snow on them are really interesting. I like the wide view. This may be a postcard view, but it's a great one. :-)

    Hello Jason,
    I was wondering where you've been lately. It's nice to see a new photo, and this one definitely shows how so many people have become slaves to their iPhones and other devices. I like the POV; it's like we're sitting at the bar with you. :-) The money in the foreground is a nice detail. Hang in there...don't let the stress drive you completely crazy!! P.S. "stressed is desserts spelled backwards, so when stressed out, eat some cake or donuts. ;-)

    Hello Tiffany,
    The colors are definitely amazing in this scene. I love Japan, and fondly remember my two trips there many years ago. I like the circular window in this photo, and I don't think the white sky is a negative. In this particular case the sky compliments the temple, and makes the color of the leaves jump out even more.
