    Howdy Serghei,

    Interesting perception of Pasadena, the last leaves on the barren tree branches.
    Many, many moons ago, I lived in Pasadena and worked in downtown LA for the Calif. State Dept. of Transportation, before being transferred to HQ. in the State Capitol - Sacramento.
    Pasadena will have its huge and very popular Rose Parade of Floats coming up soon on New Years day. It is a very popular televised event and I rarely miss watching it, and have even slept overnight on the sidewalk New Years Eve to have a good spot to watch the Parade. Now it is easier to see all the floats the next day on exhibition, but only one day before being dismantled.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Cheers,
    Ray

    Howdy Luciano,

    Idyllic Bahia beach scene, Palms next to the sandy beach, and ocean waves.
    And good to hear the increasing efforts to protect Sea Turtles. Too often these gentle giants are killed only to sell their shells to tourists. It is illegal in the Hawaiian Islands, but I suspect some are still senselessly killed by stupidity. I enjoy snorkeling with them and it is a unique experience.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Have a fine weekend,
    Cheers,
    Ray

    Howdy Malgo,

    Attractive vertical of the very ornate white classical Russian church architecture, especially not only for the unique domes, but also the pavilion octagon with arch tops, and then the corner red trimmed structure. And a bit of tourism with the man pushing the infant in the carriage.

    Well done,
    Cheers,

    Howdy Gerrit,

    From your tree top view of the African Fish Eagle, I do recognize similarity to our iconic North American Bald Eagle (which is symbolic on numerous U.S. structures, coins, stamps, etc. etc...).
    This species has the dominate white head, yet more slender, but does like to perch in tree tops, providing a commanding view.

    Thanks for sharing,
    Cheers,

    Howdy Jorge,

    Interesting Frisco scene (Los Angeles folks enjoy calling San Francisco "Frisco", because it drives them crazy, in return we are called "LaLa Land").
    Anyway...the highlighted fabric windmills dominate the view with the light subdued Chinatown shops behind beckoning shoppers.

    Well done,
    Cheers,

    Une belle image avec les blocs de glace à la dérive, les maisons aux formes très particulières. C'était en juin, une région qui ne doit jamais connaître la chaleur.

    Ciao Romano
    a wonderfully original view of this amazing little town. Your POV is perfect at showing up how it is perched up so high on the cliff, with the houses clinging to the very edge. It looks so historic and amazing.

    a wonderfully expressive and original night shot this. It looks like a beautiful place and the long exposure works perfectly, the waters are almost flame-like.

    Hello Craig
    strange how laundry is a popular theme here on TE. I suppose it is an everyday chore the world over so is a bit of a leveller. This is a wonderfully characterful shot and a double whammy with laundry on all sides. Not sure how quickly the washing against the pink wall will dry, depends on the sun here I suppose rather than the breeze.

    Howdy Yves,

    "What is better than a rainbow?....a double rainbow of course."
    And your creation also displays fine light management, and composition with the light brown field foreground, and distant silhouettes.

    Well done,
    Cheers,
