The impressive structure dating back 140 years is beautifully explained by your note. It's evocative of the equipment I saw in Belfast two weeks ago: shipbuilders Harland and Wolff, had built huge slipways and graving docks to accommodate the simultaneous construction of Olympic and Titanic.

Forty-one years and counting. In this impoverished land, people eked out a living. But then the imperial powers moved in, made the Taliban possible. The magnificent colossal statues in Bamyan were destroyed after standing sentinel for 1500 years. Maybe this young man foresees the devastation of his country, and the insanity to visit it.
I find the scan exceptionally good. The subdued colors, the textures of the cart and wheels are entirely realistic in appearance.

A fascinating note and an interesting survey. I'm surprised that Seattle, Washington, whence Starbucks, Pete's and Caribou coffee all sprung, would have been among the leaders, and New York would not have been far behind.
The photo demonstrates excellent quality. I have not been able to read the name of Golf Club in the spoon, but the definition nonetheless is first rate.
PS Between 13-20 November, we will be in New Zealand. I plan to peruse you photos to get an idea of what to see.

Painters who painted realistic images of scenes had to take their time to compose their creation. It took days or weeks to produce the final product. Modern photographers can click away at random, and by the scatter shot process perhaps produce a good composition. This could not be better composed! It's a beautiful photo of a beautiful scene.
