    Hello Will,

    This is indeed an excellent contribution to the theme of Old Doors. An indispensable part of any architectural edifice, except in one of the earliest cities ever, in Catalhuyuk, where the inhabitants would climb ladders and enter through trapdoors in the roof.

    Hello MAriusz ,
    I'm not a fan of places with too much tourists (even i'm one , too) , so i'd never wanted to go to Eurodisney . But i think that is an error , especially for my daughters ... but they are too old now .
    Kitsch , may be , but attractve building , perfectly framed from a good pov .

    Bonjour Serge,

    This is a spectacular action shot of the gaggle of geese taking flight. I'm surprised that in mid-November, they are still in Canada and have not headed south yet. We have a pond behind our house, a pit stop for Canadian geese flying south for the winter, like New Yorkers heading down to Florida.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Olá Neyvan,

    You had a superb vantage point to present this street image of SÃO PAULO. When we were visiting Brazil in late December 2015-early January 2016, I had a chance to take a trip to Visit the great city and to give a lecture at the UNIVERSITY OF SÃO PAULO. Unhappily, the students were just returning from summer vacation and we could not extend our stay in Rio. One day, I hope...

    Warm regards,

    Hello Will,

    This is a wonderfully engaging shot, with the little child in tears at an old door. The Old Town Section of Tallinn became a favorite area for me after a visit to Estonia in 2010. I just stored this photo in the group gallery Old Doors. I know that you like B&W, but those old doors in Tallinn would work just as well in color. What augments the photo, of course, is the presence of the child. But you've inspired me to submit an old door or two.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Rob,

    What an intense red on the roof of Auberge du Trésor (I like your description "screaming red"). My guess is that the cable draped in sine-waves serve as a heating element to melt snow, and let the water flow into a gutter.

    Hello Lars,

    I'm glad to see this photo, and to read the dedication the to Brenda Elaine, Trekearth's nominee for the "Queen of New York." We have all learned so much about the monuments and slices of every-day-life from her photos. Carol Jean and I had the pleasure of meeting Brenda a few years ago and celebrating a micro TE-meetings. She knows the modern center-of-the-world, better than anyone else. You had an excellent vantage point to see Union Square, with the Empire State Building looming in the distance. I was wondering of the subject of the Equestrian Statue. So it is George Washington. If you wandered to Central Park South, you probably saw the remarkable display of fathers of Latin American Countries also.

    Warm regards,

    Bulent

    Hello Alexandre,

    At the outset, thank you for the correction in my last post, Recife's location being in the state of Pernambuco instead of Bahia.

    Meanwhile, this is an engaging shot, with the pair of sea lions sunning themselves in a water taxi, with a third one having climbed into the workshop. So, these massive creatures actually climb into the boats without any invitations extended to them. The subdued yellow is seen in so many contexts in Brazil, has here found itself on a taxi. I imagine, the other water taxis have the same colors and similar markings.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Klaudio,

    Having just critiqued the portrait of the dancer, I wanted to see the detailed shot of the falconer with his prized bird. The composition with the dark background behind the bird and the light background behind the man presents an interesting compositional effect. These birds of prey have evidently developed an extraordinary technique in attacking their prey. Spotting their prey from a significant height, this bird initially gains speed by flapping his wings while keeping his head and beak cocked forwards in order to minimize the air resistance. As it swoops downwards at increasing speed, the trajectory describes a logarithmic, converging spiral. Usually, the logarithmic spiral is seen in static shapes, horns of rams, the shell of the chambered nautalist, the human ear... But here it is the dynamic trajectory of the bird attacking its prey that describes the shape. If this is a peregrine falcon, it is the fastest species of any animal on earth.

    As you know, birds can see only see sideways. He is looking at you!

    Regards, Klaudio,

    Hello Klaudio,

    This is a fabulous portrait of the young dancer illuminated with soft light of flames. The light management, the details of her costume, and the lack of any blur suggest you captured her in a fleeting moment when she was still. Moreover, your note is excellent, as always.

    I like your bio page photo with the falcon on your arm.
