The few people you met must have raised their eyebrows when seeing a living sandwich walking around own during the hottest time of the day :-). Good for you you found these shady lanes where the large windows capture the reflections of the opposite side very nicely. You handled the difficult light very well.

not as bad for a first capture in low-angle- photographing.. like such experiments, too!
Perhabs a more milky water reflections due to a longer exposure-time would have helped a bit, what do you think?
thanks for sharing, see you around, cheers Bernd

Another nice oldie from the days when Skoda cars were not so much respected on Western roads. Today it's a different story. A few decades can create an aura of nostalgic beauty to almost any product. As a photo this is very attractive with so many colourful persons watching the green car.

This is a simple but delightful composition of few but distinct features. I love the soft tones of blue and grey, and the diagonal of the mountainside balancing the straight lines of the water and the quay. The woman and the red "thing" (I don't even know what it's called in Swedish) are very nicely placed on thirds. I also like the invisible contact between the woman and the "dear one" outside the view.

Was this 400 years ago designed to be beautiful or just functional? Whatever the answer, it certainly appeals to most of us today. I love the shapes of the rusty bolts and locks and the well worn pattern and texture of the wood.

All these photos remind me of how eastern Turkey looked in the 70's (and probably still does). In spite of the billions of dollars streaming to the ruling families in Baku most of Azerbaijan still seems to be a very traditional country, where charming photos like these are still possible. The little boy sends you a nice smile and he is probably very proud of riding with his dad.

This is an excellent composition with fine colours and you looked around well for the perfect POV. The combination of space needle and glass flowers (or whatever they're supposed to mean) is very amusing and extremely eye-catching. This is a smart photo that makes me smile.

A very elegant composition of yellow, green and blue, with fine lines and the distinct features of the bales which have been placed irregularly on top of the hill. An agricultural landscape seen through the eyes of an artist.

An attractive minimalistic composition of black, blue and white. The jet stream creates a superb, diagonal balance to the dark mountain, where the summit is catching the first rays of the sun. Very simple but as always very smart and elegant.

I like how you included so much how the wall. It creates a space around the elderly men sitting closely together in the corner, near the bust of Emanuelli. The ochre colour also makes this otherwise rather discreet somposition quite eye-catching.

Hi Malgo. For a moment I thought you were doing the Silvio thing- houses and no people but I do see two persons wandering about in the heat. Yes, the reflections are a nice element to the composition where the light is lovely and colours vibrant. Pozdrawiam. Klaudio.

All we need now are the delicate notes of the santuri or of a bouzouki softly strung.beautiful element Ourania and lets hope that the seas of the Mediterranean are not in so sad a state as many ecologists are telling us.Enjoy your weekend. Klaudio.

Bonjour, cher ami Danos,
Un grand merci pour l'invitation à prendre un verre. Par ces temps chauds, ce n'est pas de refus. De plus, découvrir cet environnement de toute beauté n'est pas pour déplaire.
Très jolie présentation.
