    Howdy Takero,

    Interesting and classical Oiran Procession for the elaborate costumes and makeup from traditional history.
    Colorful and nice detail.

    Howdy Ike,

    Excellent view of Katz Schloss on its craggy mountain perch overlooking the Rhein.
    Cruising the Rhein even if my auto along the river road, is a wonderful journey.

    Fine candid of the industrious mechanic and repairman, surrounded by his subjects.
    I donate my material belongings to Hospice or Cancer Research after I no longer use them.

    Attractive high definition and color saturated panorama of the Riva waterfront. The canopies beckon visiting and the Hotel Sole must be a fine place to stay.

    Atmospheric and appealing light house, classical construction and surrounded by dramatic and colorful sky.

    I would truly enjoy staying in one of the cottages and soaking in the ambience and history.

    Howdy Serghei,

    Clever long exposure without a tripod, perhaps overcrossing railing?
    Dynamic light show, headlights left and tail lights right, and throw in some star bursts for a bonus.

    In SoCal we name our freeways. This is the 'Harbor Freeway' route 110.
    Have a safe return,
    Cheers,
    Ray

    PS: My image of Saddlebag Lake was indeed a slide film capture, then scanned to convert to digital. Back then I was working on writing magazine articles and they preferred slide photos.

    Howdy Noel,

    Very artful stain glass entry, then the wonder of the beyond interior, a tease but obviously worthwhile to visit in person.

    Most people need sanctuary. In my youth it was the library, and now it is wilderness.

    Howdy Rosemary,

    I am attracted to the unique bridge design with the single arch starting below and rising above the span, and the craggy cliffs it crosses. Looks like a good place to perch on top of and enjoy the scenery.

    Appealing view of Motsameta Monastery, rock pathway leading into the entrance, attractive ancient rock and mortar construction and obviously well built to survive all these centuries in such fine shape. And surrounded by landscape instead of crowded city.
