    Hello Kasia,
    My latest photo showed just a nice street, this on shows just a nice family. It's a good photo which seems to have captured their individual attitudes and characters very well. It becomes an interesting photo, more than just a family portrait, along with the note. They probably illustrate the problems facing so many families in this region, where very ordinary inter-marriages have made lives complicated because of political developments. I can sense the woman's worry at being a refugee with her kids, having her husband in the not very capable Iraqi army.
    As usual your WS photos are also very nice. Among them I prefer the one with the kids at the citadel and the view of the city. It gives us a little of everything.
    So now you are off on another journey again, and you only had time so far to post one single photo from Nepal. You are almost even more hopeless than Malgo. ;-)
    Have a good time, and stay safe.

    Hello Danos,

    This is exactly as I imagine Greece, when I am back home; a mixture of rocky outcrops and greenery, delightful old buildings with warm coloured roofs and a sea the colour of aquamarine. It's so warm and welcoming.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)
    How do you feel about the new Prime Minister? Is there a new optimism in Greece?

    Hello Daniel,

    This is an interesting slice of Paris, with details of land and its transport, and the river and its transport, whilst the bridge creates the link between the two.
    It's nicely composed, with a strong f/g triangle and easy guidance around its features.
    There is no doubting the importance of the river, a sense of which pervades the scene, with its wide span and accumulation of transporting barges.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Silvio,

    This is definitely a wintery scene, with a sense of mist hanging over the houses, preventing the bright colours that we normally see in the sunshine. Despite that, the details are sharp, the mood is tangible and the composition, as always, is of a high quality.

    Kind regards,

    Bonjour Roland,

    Yes, I can see how the link to five fingers was created.
    The road gives a nice separation line and a suggestion of depth, as we proceed over the railings to the slope, beyond, where the houses progress up the hillside like a series of steps.
    There is a lovely sense of movement, from left to right, across the frame; the details are sharp and the colours well saturated.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Ciao Caro Carlo,

    I really like this, where you have combined the geometric shapes of the various buildings and features, into a close-up, almost abstract, picture. There is a sense of welcome from the open shutters and a friendliness from the bright colours.
    The contrasts of light and shadow show depth and create a very 3D effect.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jorge,

    I must admit, I was surprised to see so many trekkers in this wild, open country, though, like you, I know many people love this sort of a walk. The figures work effectively as leads, gently guiding, with a sense of perspective, from the rocky f/g, via the greenery, to the waterfall and, eventually the distant peak. The clarity is good and the colours natural.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Bonjour Serge,

    This is a fine close-up of as gannet.
    The attitude of the bird is something I have never seen photographed before.
    Your shallow dof is perfectly implemented, capturing wonderfully sharp details of the plumage and, even more importantly, its facial features.
    The oof b/g supplies an excellent impression of a large, crowded colony.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hello Jean,

    The street is certainly attractive, with its cobbled pavements, its open air shops, its coloured buildings and fairy tale turrets. The whole is made even more attractive by your use of the brick archway, which frames the scene and draws the viewer beneath it, to participate in with the other figures.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Mike,

    Your first post from Australia.
    I wondered what you would find!

    This is a fine abstract.
    The b&w treatment is stark and raises recollections of a game board.
    The non-conforming sections, nicely placed, are curious.
    What is the purpose of these disks; do they have a purpose or just for decoration.

    Kind regards,
    Bev :-)
    By the way, did we mention to you that you were arranging the TE get-together this year!

    Hello Craig,

    Trams are like trains, they seem to cast a spell over us when we see them ... we have to photograph them!
    Well, a red one is even more of a treat!

    This is a fine composition, capturing the mood of the busy street and the enviable recklessness of young boys! I see where you got your title from!

    The Metro (tramway) is an important method of transport in Manchester, now. The trams are quick clean and efficient. When I visited the city last week, I noticed a large part of the centre was under development, to install a new Metro station.

    Thanks for sharing this,
