    Hello Gert,

    Thanks for sharing the excellent photograph as well as the information. It appears to be a marble statue rather than bronze, and much more difficult to create. Almost sixty years after he passed away, I imagine the woman on the phone is neither in awe nor in fear of the personification of evil. His daughter Svetlana married an American architect and lived in Charlottesville, Virginia the last couple of decades of her life.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Rob,

    I've seen this building a number of times in my visit to New York in the last couple of years. It is strange design because of its overwhelming simplicity. Do some floors have more than one apartment? I recently saw a program in which the incredible nouveau rich population in such buildings have an elevator for their cars. One apartment owner owned two Lamborghinis that were transported up by elevator to the owner's floor, and stood sentinel behind glass wall... but part of the apartment. Could it be this building? In a way, the building evokes memories of the tragic World Trade Center's Twin-Towers, and is also vulnerable. I don't think I could live in a building like this, but I don't expect anyone to ask me.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Bev,

    This is the best photo I've seen of a drone in midair. We see photos of military drones, toy drones in commercials... but this is a grown man's version, especially with photo capability. I will try to find the photo that your husband posted on Face Book. Better still, do you have a facebook page?

    The sunset creates an idyllic scene, just as you suggest, and the presence of the two pairs of individuals adds a touch of human presence. I like it very much.

    Hello Stephen,

    You've chosen a good vantage point to show the vineyard. The precisely planted array of plants in the vineyard, I wonder why there are labels for each column. The plants look identical. Freiburg is famous for its ancient university, it is a town I would love to visit.

    Bonjour mon cher ami, Philippe,

    The color of these biscuits suggests an orangy taste, but that is because I have never seen anything this color that was not orange... or pumpkin. It immediately beckons a visit.

    Hello Ike,

    In this well-composed ecclesiastical scene, the 19th-century church of Saint-Peter Russian Orthodox Church looks very different from the onion-shaped churches seen in Russia. I think I've seen this place among the sites I've visited in Israel.

    Hello Takero San,

    Windows, doors, balconies... all make eye-catching scenes. You've produced an excellent photo containing all three elements I've listed. Oaxaca was an area of Meso-America that had a Pre-Columbian culture of its own, and just as grizzly as the Aztecs, Mixtecs, etc. And the people seem to adhere to Catholicism as well as their original Gods.

    Hello Murat Bey,

    It's an eye-catching sight, and I put it in the group theme of Mobile Phones. The large screen certainly provides information about the transportation service, who knows what they are looking at. As for your comment on my last post, I did indeed check out the car that has been leveled by a boulder. It is a 1999 Ford Festiva. When I was gazing at the car in person, I thought it might be a Yugo, which was called one of the 50 Worst Cars of All Time.

    Hello Brenda,

    Do they actually perform, or are they "living statues," frozen in place. It's a very good photo. The presence of the two strolling people in the rear creates a contemporaneous rather than posed photo.

    Ciao Luciano,

    You captured the waterfalls in a fleeting instant when the waterfalls are seen resembling cotton wool, bunched together. Sharp, well illuminated and featuring excellent composition. I am nervous of such a flimsy rope keeping the viewers away from the edge. Fantastic shot!

    Hello Gert,

    The quartet on a bicycle is destined for a future life in Cirque de Soleil in Las Vegas. It's a very good photo, colorful, well-composed and sharp revealing the debris on the street. Wasn't "Uncle Joe" Stalin from this area?

    Hello Ourania,

    You captured an excellent moment, showing a candid "Italian moment," where Italians more than anyone else gesture with their hands. I love this colorful scene, the young sailor from a mariner school and his friend are trying to resolve some abstract issue. The colors of the wood are warm with freshly applied varnish, the jeans on the woman offer a competing cool color.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Subho,

    When I am hungry, scenes like this appear especially appetizing. You've provided a highly informative note to complement this excellent exotic menu of delectables from West Bengal. In 2010, I visited New Delhi, Agra, and Chandigarh (where a university buddy from ancient days lives) but unhappily did not make it to Kolkata.

    Hello Sergiy,

    How nice to see you are still taking photos and have returned to Trekearth. I remember well your photos from bicycle road-trips to rugged and largely uninhabited areas of Central Asia. This photo from Tajikistan is first rate, showing a slice-of-daily life scene of the group of cyclists.

    Incidentally, my physician in the United States is a young woman from Kharkiv, half-Russian, half-Ukrainian.
