    Dag Paul,

    U speelt heel mooi met licht en schaduwen met een mooi zicht op de bergwanden.
    Dit moet spectaculair zijn om daar te kunnen wandelen.
    Ik begrijp wat u zegt, schrik zou men niet mogen hebben maar, voorzichtig zijn is de moeder van de porselein winkel nietwaar!
    Hoogte vrees heb ik niet maar misschien ben ik nog nooit zo hoog geweest of wat ik zie op het wandelpad tegen de rotswand.
    Heel mooi foto werk, bedankt.

    Groetjes,
    John.

    Dag Jan-Willem,

    We hebben twee Nobelprijs winnaars met naam in deze straat, dit is enig in de wereld.
    Het moet u plezier gedaan hebben om daar te kunnen wandelen, ik zou een beetje het zelfde gevoel krijgen, maar ik reis niet dus geen mogelijkheid om dit te beleven.
    Goede foto werk met al de bewijzering met ook de bekende namen.
    Goed foto werk, bedankt.

    Groeten,

    Hello Ali,

    Mosques are almost always very nice buildings, almost all religion buildings are built with a lot money and care for a nice architectural heritage.
    The market place gives very quiet place with the shop and different visitors.

    Hi Craig,

    So, it would seem you've jumped in Gerts time machine for a ride back to the 60's...love and peace, ya' hippie! lol

    Never been to Cuba as you know, but this picture sure does have that feel of a bygone era. Too bad that woman passing by in the foreground couldn't accommodate your vision here to recreate the decade. C'mon lady, wear the proper clothing to fit the scene...now let's take it from the top...take two...aaaand, go! :)

    Contrary to the quaint old town type of streets that are much more "cozy,' this wide avenue and open space gives off an entirely new vibe to the city. We still get the old classic cars though, linking us back to your previous pics and the nostalgia of times.

    A well layed out composition that takes us off into the distance. Neat to see how this contrasts with your most recent upload of Chicago, a completely different style.

    Alright, here we go...one last round. Play ball! Should be a fun series, I'm pulling for the Royals...gotta' keep it with the American League. :) Have a good one amigo.


    Cheers from sunny PHX,

    Jason

    Privet Maria Elektrozavodskaya,

    You know, it's amazing how engaging your Russia pictures have become since being there myself...but I guess that would only be normal, right? :) I liked them from the first view, but I know have a greater understanding of the visuals and people involved...and seeing a local woman dressed in this manner really has a strong impact in my minds eye. Your note made me laugh too, I'm sure there aren't any sitting around playing cards or out golfing...what a sight that would be, yeah? lol

    Just a day in the life of a hard working Russian woman, tending to her garden. Her brightly colored clothing sure stands out against the varying shades of green which fill the frame. A simple moment captured, but a telling look into the real side of life far from the big city. Молодцы, мои коллеги-русский переводчик. (works best in Google. jaja) Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.

    Cheers from sunny Q.C.,

    Yes ma'am, Tony Gunk at your service. ;)

    What an interesting mix you've come across here Brenda, your curiosity to investigate has paid off well. Had you not mentioned it, this could easily be mistaken for some Photoshop trickery...combining two completely different halves into a single frame. Don't believe I've ever seen such a distinct side-by-side construction, and to top it off you have two different colors of graffiti that break at the same point where the brick splits.

    Perhaps not the most aesthetic of "art," but an intriguing collection none the less. As its said, All in the eye of the beholder." Happy to see a new pic posted. lol enjoy the rest of the evening. one last hurrah for the season...play ball! :) Take care. Let me know when you find Larry, would ya'? :))

    Friendly wishes from out West,

    Bonjour Didi,

    I like what you've done here with this compressed perspective, layering the different shapes of rooftops with the linear grouping of boat mast's. The blue and white colors in the harbor contrast nicely against the rustic tones of the houses and natural greenery of the hillside. A well planned arrangement with some beautiful sunlight to accent the entire visual. Have a great day. Take care.

    Amicalement,

    Jason

    Tu sais, je pense que la première ligne de tes notes dit tout...tout ce que nous devons savoir et comprendre est bien véhiculée par cette belle image. Je ne veux même pas ruiner le sentiment en essayant de détail quelque chose en particulier, oui, je vais simplement m'asseoir et prendre tout en visuellement! :) Just lovely! Bonne journée mon ami.

    Hi John,

    You say the weather was not excellent, hmmm...I see nothing wrong with it here...if I'm not mistaken, that's the sun shining over the canal?? :) The courthouse sure stands majestic over this section of town, and I really like how it fuses with the classic architecture in the background. Looks like a nice day for a boat ride, despite any dealings with cloudy skies, the people look to be enjoying themselves out standing on the boat as it passes by. Nicely timed to catch this little journey, and as always, a strong composition to enhance it all. Enjoy the new day ahead. Take good care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Murat,

    Can't say I know much about cars, but I can sure appreciate their beauty...and this is certainly one that fits that bill! A classic in style and grace, with the luxury of four wheels. :) Although I'm not that "car guy," the front grill of this one sure looks like it would be fun to photograph. A well taken angle to present this fine automobile, I'm sure the car lovers had a heyday here! Enjoy the rest of the evening. Take it easy.

    Hi Ali,

    I really like the sense of late night atmosphere under the warm glow of artificial lights in the market scene. I'm intrigued by the varied products on display, or perhaps it's because they're shiny and caught my eye. :) This gives us both a look inside from the outside, a nice mixture of space and people going about their shopping and leisure activity. Enjoy the rest of your evening as well. Take care.

    Hi Burak,

    A fun comparison between the figure in the advert, and those in real life emerging from the metro. A well designed photo that draws instant interest to the human elements. Each man looks to have somewhat of an intense expression, but I really like the gentleman with the razor scooter in hand, there's a touch of unexpectedness from a "professional" businessman. Great candid shot from the streets of Paris. Enjoy the rest of the day. Take care.

    Friendly wishes,
