I tried here to make a photo Gert style. I was testing if I can find people with matching colours. And it seems it is possible.
Yesterday I met my University friends to celebrate the beginning our studies in physics 50 years ago. it was a great fun to sit in our old lecture hall. I prepared the slide show with the photos of Institute from tat time and also the old black and white photos from the times of study, accompanied with the songs of that time. I think they liked it. There were two lectures and later was o competition who visited the most countries. You can be proud of me, I have no rivals with my 67 countries (they had less than 40). I was crowned as a Queen of Globtrotters:). I will post a photo when I have one.

nice the snapshot from this section of the town with the colourful houses to dominating on the backdrop of the photo.The two chatiing women adds life in the image.I like the excellent light and colour management as the excellent placement of the women in the frame.
Have a good WE,Danos

It's flattering that you try to copy my "style", but I'm not sure I have any. I just try to take any kind of pictures that I find amusing. Craig has claimed several times that if you wait long enough you will always have people passing by a certain house, a car or whatever wearing perfectly matching colours. There are very nice colours in this glimpse from a street, but there are also very nice lines in various directions, including several diagonals.
If I have enough time I will post a new picture today where I found quite interesting colours. If you can wait long enough you will see it :-).

Moje gratulacje Krolowo Globtroterow! :-) 67 to swietny wynik!
Kolory w tym zdjeciu rzeczywiscie bardzo dobrze skoordynowane. Intrygujaco wyglada szara fasada hotelu na tle kolorowych, odnowionych domkow.
Pozdrawiam serdecznie i zycze milego weekendu. No i udanych przygotowan do wyjazdu!

I wonder if this trend of matching colours will catch on,I must be a little more observant...
I do like the warmth of this charming street scene with the couple so nicely placed in the frame with the well lit buildings adding their own interest.
Whow! 67 countries,now that is impressive.
Kind regards Les.

67 countries takes some beating, I am nowhere near that figure even taking into account my globe-trotting days at work! The two ladies chatting makes a lovely focal point in this nicely presented daily life image. Very good colours and clarity.

Well done you! Either travel or matching..and your slide show
The matching colour on this image is beautiful.. one of my favorite colours.. We Chinese call it "Brick red".. no imagination :-D..

J'aime beaucoup ce cadrage vertical qui donne une très bonne idée de l'activité dans ce beau village polonais remplit de couleurs, même si le ciel est un peu terne.

Interesting combination, female attire colors and Chojnice architecture, and the path's patterns.
In reference to your University slide show, I had forgotten how we use to display photos via slide projectors before 'digital' and internet.
Is it possible to share your historical show via You Tube?
Thanks for sharing,

Good tribute to Gert, I am not big fan of this style, but sometime I've use this way to show some street scene with interesting building on the background.
Thanks for your warm words, it was not the first but very interesting experience on TV.

quelle image colorée et vue superbe ces deux dames qui papotent dans la rue et quelle rue superbe ce tons sur les maisons et façades très très belle scène.
Bravo et amitié

A magnificent picture, which reflects the atmosphere, either in a corner of the city, nice colorful facades and a couple of ladies in quiet conversation, denoting a scene, the quiet atmosphere of the place.
You enjoy the weekend.

Now I would have been very surprised if you hadn't won the travel competition, you are the Queen of Globetrotters after all. Wow, 67 countries, that is pretty impressive. If I have counted correct, I am at 33 only.
Funny, how we can be inspired by someones simple idea, like this here with the matching colors. And it worked well, the different reds, beginning with the pavement in the foreground, the first lady's bag, the second lady's shirt, ending with the red house in the background, it comes all nicely together.
have a great weekend

il tuo esercizio sembra ben riuscito, ma il voto deve dartelo Gert che è il maestro.
Complimenti per il titolo di Regina, non avevi rivali....
Bella celebrazione, 50 anni sono molti.

Un des attraits des amis de TE est de nous inspirer dans la réalisation de nos images!Composition sympa avec la participation des deux personnes. Je découvre que nous avons en commun d'avoir fait des études de physique....et pratiquement pendant les mêmes années!

Lovely scene of daily life. The modern ladies talking animated with each other are the perfect eye catchers in front of the colourful houses.
macjake (58160) 2014-08-31 10:22
yes its true. If you do wait long enough, its amazing how people will stand in front of a building with the exact same colors, or something similar that equally humorous.
the longer I look at this one, its clear that you did capture some of the same colors as the home in the bg.
i think the roof matches the woman's purse the best.
fun photo for sure!
Gert it Up! haha

Jak sie spotkaja dwie panie to jest czas aby zrobic foto ;)
Fajna scenka z ulicy.
Pozdrawiamy z Rewala

This is indeed a Gert style photo, and one that I recently critiqued. I can identify with reunions with old (very old) physics classmates. When you mentioned the rivalry about who visited the most countries, I knew this would be have been no competition for you. I would not be able to compete with you, even though the list on my profile page is not complete.
Warm regards, Malgo,
ikeharel (59787) 2014-09-01 8:25
Nice taken the casual meeting on the street, Malgo.
Colors which you refered to, are matching the environment in fine harmony.
I'd be most intriguied to know what they were conversing about... special posture rteveals less than a bit.
nikkitta (15394) 2014-09-02 13:12
I am not Gert, but people attract always my attention, a building is the same, same happens with churches, monasteries, landscapes but people, talking, smiling, working convert a postcard in something personal
Like here also the diagonal and textures of the floor
So ready for the trip, it seems, I recommend you some book of Sylvain Tesson a great traveler

Hi Malgorzata dear
I love this shot of two women talk. Excellent composition. Resolution and colors. Thanks for recording this nice picture
I'm looking forward to meeting you in my town of Gorgan. Regards ...
fabbs99 (16783) 2014-09-03 23:53
Lovely shot of the colorful house and the couple of ladies gossiping.Keep sharing.TFS.
