    Hi Krzysztof,

    The pictures you sent me must have been inspiration to find this one I hadn't yet commented on in your gallery here. :) An necessary, and vital part of Chicago...also a quintessential subject that depicts one of the major aspects of big city life, public transportation.

    Love the black & white for this shot, feels "old timey"...which is fitting of course, as these elevated trains have been around for quite some time and are well known throughout the States...the "El" instantly brings Chicago to mind.

    Great positioning for this one, leaving just enough space between the top of the train car and the platform rooftop, which creates a strong converging perspective. The diagonal arrangement also gives the visual a more dynamic appeal. Limited space to work with on the quai's, but you made work in your favor none the less. Have a good one amigo. Take it easy.


    Cheers from the desert furnace,

    J

    Guten tag Wolfgang,

    Aside from the sea urchin, this looks to be a wonderful bath indeed! :) If that's the worst to worry about, you're in good shape to enjoy this simple pleasure. Certainly looks like a nice place to cool down and enjoy nature...or simply wade around and look for other interesting bits of life. :) Whatever the case, I'm glad you had the chance to enjoy it. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Ana,

    These old windows may never open again, but you've effectively given them new life through your lens, as many can enjoy the simple beauty that lies within this framework for many more years to come. This has always been one of my favorite subjects, the weathered and worn textures are a virtual gold mine for photographers. Better days have passed, however, it's created a nice opportunity to capture its spirit and character. Enjoy the new day. All the best.

    Friendly wishes,

    Hi Miro,

    No worries about response times...if anything, I'm jealous of your travels. :) Glad you found some time to stop in for a quick bit, always good to hear from you, and I hope you're having a great time. My first thought when seeing this picture was of the Old Town in Bern, I really enjoy this close grouping of rooftops. Seemingly a "no-rules" configuration, so many different angles and directions, but it all comes together neatly and well organized...just like the country in which they're located. :) Lovely light to accent the strong shapes and architectural design, and plenty of detail and textures. Travel safe, and stop in again when you can. Take good care.

    Friendliest wishes,

    Jason

    Hi Mesut,

    Indeed, they do look like they would be comfortable to wear...in fact, perhaps so much that you wouldn't even want to bother getting dressed and leave the house!? :) This is a fun and colorful arrangement that has strong graphic appeal with the patterns. There's also some nice light to accent the frame. A well chosen, and well taken subject. Enjoy the day ahead. All the best.

    Hi Bev,

    Being that my last run of pictures have been from New York, this one of yours caught my eye as I've been trying to get caught up in your gallery this evening. :) I have also taken a similar picture with these old posts.
    They sure make for a fascinating and inquisitive subject, yeah? :) I see that Brenda has explained their history, and it's sure fun to try and think what they once supported.

    Always nice to see something out of the ordinary, especially from a place so well known in picture. Hope all has been going well. Take good care.

    Hi Murat,

    You may have noticed it regardless, but isn't it great when the simple things come to light when the surroundings are slowed down and the relative quiet and calm take over? I wonder how many people would see this every day nautical theme and objects as a nice photo op...you did, and it paid off well. Love the colors and varied textures, and that small portion left along the top for added context. Hope all has been going well. Have a good one.

    Salut ma chère ami,

    Bien au vue panoramique! Ce serait une décision difficile, rester ici avec cette vue splendide, ou la tête en bas et profiter de la plage...ou, encore mieux...les deux! :) Il semble comme si tu étais en plein cœur d'une forêt, avec juste assez d'espace pour regarder dehors et de réaliser à quel point celui-ci est à la mer. Quel que soit le cas, c'est une belle vue pleine de couleur et ambiance chaleureuse dans la mesure où l'oeil peut voir. J'espère que tout s'est bien. Tous les meilleurs voeux.

    Good evening my friend,

    Amazing site, these formations are beautiful. Nature sure can work magic to create such effects, and you've done a great job in putting them on display. Wow, 60 million years ago...how in the world can anyone put a number on that? I mean, it's not a redwood tree...they can't cut them down and count the rings inside?? :)

    You caught this at a nice moment of light, giving a solid showing of detail and texture. I also like that you filled the frame with these "rocks," but still allowing for plenty of interest in the background as well. These would definitely fun to explore, and must be fun for rock climbers too. Take good care.

    Friendly wishes,

    Jason
