    Hej Gert,
    Det är säkert en bra ide att ha en elefantgud som övervakar vetenskap etc. Intressant bild med ett fint budskap.

    Hej Gert,
    Extrabilderna med juterullarna får mig osökt att tänka på all juteväv och jutefilt som vi använde på Forshaga. Jag förmodar att dessa rullar luktade likadant. F.ö. fina och intressanta bilder.

    Hej Gert,
    Det är faktiskt imponderable att du har så otroligt många bilder att lägga ut på TE, över 1000 "reguljära" foton och förmodligen lika många workshops. När tar bilderna slut? Som vanligt en intressant bild men jag tror att jag själv hade valt bilden med flickorna som huvudbild.

    Hello Kasia,
    This is a remarkably ugly place for Kathmandu, and indeed for Durbar Square, but the ugliness couldn't suit your hardship series better. This kind of hard work, for ridiculously little money, is one of the ugliest features of the world. On the other hand, strictly artistically this is very good, with the two men looking so similar, walking across the tiled ground in front of a wall of corrugated iron. It's plain and simple, which I like, and maybe there is a kind of symbolism in the fact that we are looking down at these poor fellows.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Serghei,
    As a work of art the sculpture in the WS looks fairly uninteresting, so this is a much more attractive photo. I always like photos of people "at work", in this case a woman taking a photo. This one is very good because of the way she is standing, and also because of her black and white clothes and black and white belongings against a green background.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    PS How very strange. When I look at the beta.trekearth there is a different photo, with the same title. How did you manage that?

    Another well timed photo of airplanes in action. This looks quite dramatic, and above all it's a very eye-catching and attractive photo, very nicely composed.

    Hello Mesut,
    This is almost as old as the oldest photo I ever posted here (from 1964). It's amusing to watch these kids, looking excited at having their photo taken, and imagine what has happened to them during the past 50 years. Did any of them lose their jobs recently for being members of FETÖ? ;-)

    Hello Pierre,
    The attractive church is very nicely presented to us. It is beautifully framed by the trees, and the white flowers create a superb foreground. The photo is perfectly exposed and the colours are carefully saturated.

    Hello György,
    The people on the sides create good depth to the photo and drag my eyes towards the children at the far side. Their hopeful, hungry expectancy is quite obvious from their faces. The red dresses, warm light and the darkness outside create a very cosy atmosphere. The workshops are interesting too, but the meat offered by the Uncle looks rather heavy for the stomach.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Will,
    I think you interpreted the Estonian words quite correctly. I suppose her mother would rather have seen her daughter smiling when being photographed, but crying somehow seems more "realistic", along with the realistic look of the rather battered gate, wall and letter box. It was a well spotted brief moment and you show it in fine black and white tones.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Ourania,
    Back to a quiet and sunny day. The pretty boats are safely anchored in the harbour casting fine reflections among the very gentle waves. They look very similar but have their own identities by being slightly differently painted. I like how you cropped this, because the shapes and colours are more important then seeing the entire nearest boat.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    These fruits were very nicely displayed by the salesperson, but you also had a good idea for an attractive composition. The close-up from a low angle created a wonderfully bright and colourful photo.

    Hello Rob,
    Same as yesterday but differently presented. And again it's fascinating to see the sculpture from different engles creating different images because of the light. The note helps me to see clearly the pregnant woman in the photo to the left. Especially I like the different colours of the "hair", changing from blue to grey and to white.
    Kind regards,

    Hello Paul,
    I think you have made it an occasional habit to post your photo just before midnight American west coast time, so you can easily add two more workshops a few minutes later. It's smart, but at that time I am still having my breakfast, so it would be too early for me.
    These five photos are all interesting and well taken, although some of the workshops are slightly "nothing special", just adding further glimpses of street life. This one is no doubt the best composition (along with the view of the statue from above). The tree to the left and the domes of the cathedral provide a good balance and the people are nicely spread out, giving an impression of something going on in every corner. The light and colours of (probably) late afternoon are enchanting.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Claude,
    Seeing something from above usually creates nice effects, often graphically attractive. That is certainly the case here, but even more interesting than the view of the boats are the reflections of the sun among the waves left behind. There is a lot of action in these waves.
    Regards,
    Gert

    Hello Ryszard,
    The marina is crowded with small boats of different kinds, most of them looking quite simple and not very luxurious. What really makes this a stunning photo is the forest of masts, which create a great pattern of vertical lines and diagonals. The dark clouds are perfect for this kind of photo.
    Kind regards,

    This is also a nice photo. The scenery is attractive and the colourful line of anglers are beautifully reflected in the water. Fishing is not one of my hobbies, but these people look very good in a photo.
