    Hello Will,

    Framed by the dark foliage, this is such an effective presentation of the little hamlet. The note is complementary and much appreciated. The villagers must take pride in keeping the place so neat and tidy, a veritable miniature village in this photo.

    Warm regards,

    This beauty came up quite by random. You haven't been very active lately on Trekearth, I hope everything is alright.

    Hello Ike,

    This is one of the best shots of the amphitheater in Ashkelon. I knew about the dig, and it has restored the structure very quickly. There must be so much more in the surrounding area that an aerial infrared photo would reveal.

    Hello Malgorzata,

    As I read the note, it sounded more and more familiar. When Leonardo applied to the Court of the Sultan Beyazit II, he did introduce the idea of the pressed bow design. A scribe in the court, instead of identifying Leonardo the Florentine, described him as Ricardo the Genoan, and an entry calls him "Kafir," (unbeliever).

    Great shot. Where you on a ferry?

    Warmest regards,

    Ciao Romanoi,

    A wonderful capture of Bugs Bunny playing the accordion! Was he good? Of all the street musicians I've supported with my change, I heard one in Cadiz who was a spectacular guitarist. When I took out my wallet, the smallest bill I had on me was 20 Euros. The poor man said, I will give you change. I gave him the entire 20 Euro currency. We were both happy.

    Warm regards,

    Like a triple window, a triptych into a magical garden, you've captured a very beautiful scene with stained glass windows as the crown. This is lovely view.

    Hello Pavle,
    This is a fantastic private collection of old and curious things, truly a kind of small museum. You show us five excellent photos from this fascinating room with the fireplace. They are all very well taken with a very good light.

    Hello Ourania,
    Welcome back. I was worried something terrible had happened. Computer failures are annoying enough but not the end of the world. Just almost ;-).
    What a very nice view this is. I think the owner of the cute little boat asked himself, while painting, if there was any colour he still hadn't used, and then he added that one. Maybe it doesn't look artistic and sophisticated, but it is certainly a sight that makes me smile. Lovely light and colours generally, and boats and buoys nicely spread out.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Miro,

    With extreme sharpness this makes an eye catching image. The dome of the stupa appears to be covered with sort of animal hide.

    I am looking forward to one of your shots of a rope suspension bridge from Katmandu.

    Hello Costantino,

    Each photograph you send from the coast of Volos brings a happy smile to my face. I remember walking along the same coast in 1999, after returning from a drive to Meteora. This one has special magic with the red filter and a silhouette.

    Warm regards good friend,

    Hello Rosemary,
    If ultra conservative Christians had their way and we would follow the Bible strictly, "we" would probably be as cruel and crazy as the "Islamic state". Actually, the Church of Sweden now has its first female arch bishop. There have been "ordinary" female bishops for several years.
    As for the photo, there is good light at the end of the tunnel (or maybe it's just a well lit section), which could also be interpreted any way you like. In spite of the brightness of that part you managed a fine exposure all over with good contrasts between the light and the dark figures. The tiles and the line and symbols on the paving create a good graphic effect.
    Kind regards,
    Gert

    Hello Eleu,
    Did you know that there is a small area in Nepal called Mustang? A former semi independent kingdom on the border with Tibet. I imagine this place near Las Vegas would actually look fairly similar, except for the cactae. Wild and rugged and snow covered mountains in the background, and a few horses running freely. Imagine how much one learns about the world through TE!

    Very effective shot and unusually good light management. It's evocative of a scene from the 1970s film, "Clockwork Orange."

    Hello Ana,
    This is one of the very famous places in India that I have not seen. Unfortunately that country is just too large for anyone with just one lifetime. It's a very pretty view showing India from its nicest side: quiet and rural and very relaxed. The colours are superb too.

    Hello Nicolas,
    This is a fine composition, the kind of street-shot that I like very much. The five joggers are seen in beautiful surroundings with trees and lawns. The road and the benches give the composition excellent depth and the mild colours are beautiful.
