    Howdy Silvio,

    Fine up close view of the antique San Cristoforo Church, simple design yet classical presentation.
    The lack of windows would probably make for a dark interior?

    Interesting scene with the first people entering Red Square, a vast wide space, and the deep red 19th century Moscow State History Museum dominating the background.

    This classical wood schooner perhaps decades old, would be fun to sail on around Leros. Just the opposite of the huge commercial cruise ships, and more adventurous.

    Good to see this classical steam locomotive still operating, and ironically hauling cabooses which the RRs abandoned decades ago.
    Would be enjoyable to experience in person.

    Impressive central rail station interior, back when trains were king, the neo baroque architecture of ornate columns supporting arches and art base relief on the arched ceiling, with huge chandeliers is enhanced by the yellow coloring.

    Howdy John,

    Fine vertical view of the Smailholm Tower, still impressive and appearing 'rock solid' after all those centuries of conflict. And obviously boulders drop from this height would do some serious damage. In history classes, I also read that pots of boiling oil were poured on invaders from towers and high walls of defensive castles/forts.

    Howdy Will,

    Interesting positioning viewing the antique brick cottages uphill across the brick pavement, enhanced by the subdued lighting and use of monochrome, revealing details and textures rather than the bang of colors.

    Teaching photography must have been challenging but rewarding?
    I had a degree in history and minor in biology but the Vietnam War screwed up my plan to be a high school teacher.

    This vertical view of Ruta del Cares is an impressive trail on the cliff edge, certainly not advisable for those with vertigo. The scenery is rugged and magnificent.

    Thanks for sharing,

    PS: I have never been to the top of El Capitan. I have hiked the trail as far as the overlook of Yosemite Falls which is a strenuous multi mile steep trail.

    love this! It is a perfectly composed shot with sleek lines and yet gentle undulations to enhance the effect so sweetly. I love the textures and symmetry too! An arty and wonderfully observed piece of imagery.
    Can I see a pair of feet in the glass reflection?
