    Hi Gert
    I wonder how comfortable that is to wear, I would think its very comfortable...but i'm not exactly sure.

    This is one of those scenes where its very easy to come up with some creative story line as to why he can't get into the store.

    perhaps he's the owner, perhaps he's a customer, perhaps his wife is running the shop and she won't let him in haha
    it can go on and on as long as your creative mind lets you.

    sadly, this man is now more than likely passed on.
    I hope he eventually got what he wanted though :)

    good shot with all the shaded contrasts, and that gate stands out so well.
    cheers

    Hi John
    thats a sweet rose colored blouse :) certainly pops off of the screen, and it makes a strong visual statement, it says LOOK AT ME :)

    another part of the photo which catches my attention are the tiles on the roofline, very sharp and well focused. same with the white painted brick. the arched door looks short in height :)

    thanks for this one

    Hi Malgo
    I've been enjoying your photos of the Eiffel tower on FB, it's making me want to post another Eiffel Tower shot too :)

    This is one of those places in Paris that I didn't get too, there's just so much to see you have to pick and choose I guess. But thats makes it easier to return :)

    cool to see the long straight streets like this, its a view we don't usually see from Cities. its almost like it goes on forever. Was it busy up there? lots of people? does it cost money to go up?

    fun city shot, fun memory and experience too.
    cheers

    Hi Noel
    actually its very cool.
    sometimes the poor quality gives off a unique mood don't you think? yeah so what, its not going to be blown up and framed on your wall, but for online viewing like this on TE its just fine.

    the end result is kinda neat, she looks like an Angel about to land on the ground and her wings are open to slow her down like a parachute :)

    Easy to see why you had fond memories here :)
    and getting drunk i'm sure only made it better!
    cheers

    Hi Silvi
    I'm surprised this photo didn't get more points for you, its well deserving of it.

    the blown out sky on the right actually looks quite attractive bc it makes for a FG/BG type of separation from the town.

    I also like the down sloping angle, thats a nice touch.
    thanks for this one

    Hello John,

    A photograph which captures the neat building with a crisp, clear clarity.
    The lady in pink brings the whole scene to life and guides us effectively towards the opening between the walls.
    The opening and the lady emphasise your understanding of good composition.

    My warm regards,
    Bev :-)

    Hi Daniel
    wow, now that is one very ornate Carousel!
    I have never ever seen one quite like that before.
    it looks like it belongs to the Trump family or something :)
    very cool. excellent post for TE

    Hi Ney
    we don't see these shots on TE very often, if ever, so this is a nice one to add to your personal gallery.

    and I also like the family connection you have with this photo too, that adds a more personal side story to it.

    lovely contrast levels, fantastic skyline with those clouds, and the colours pop. nice one
    cheers

    150cm snow in three days in Belgium is this no possible, I think that everyone must remain in his house here!

    Guten Mittag Wolfgang,

    You show us the Roman Catholic Church of Saint Donat on a very nice way.
    I though an orthodoxe church, but I shall make a mistake.

    Hi Bev
    I have a dumb question, but i think i know the answer...as the tide comes in and the water level rises, that wooden walking path must rise as well right? haha...that would be pretty useless if it didn't :)

    and you're right, you really can see just how high the water can get here.

    the dark posts work as excellent color contrasts, you have reflections, and wonderful weather and lighting to bring it all together. nice shot indeed. cheers

    Hi Takero
    I know that Japan has a fascination with Vending machines, in fact Japan has more vending machines than any other country in the world :)

    Funny to see this one outside like this with snow covering it in large amounts. Now I want a drink :)
    fun shot
