It is good to see this image shot on 25 May and posted on 13 June. The colors are splendid, as is the sharpness. It feels as if we are all going back to a time-capsule 166 years ago. The woman's bright outfit, the highlights in her hair, the woodwork, the stonework (in the fireplace) all collaborate to make this a special photo. Incidentally, I just sent you a friend request on Facebook. I am inviting my TE-friends to join a new closed group, National Geographic Friends, but we must be friends on FB.
Has your son retired from Trekearth?

This is a wonderful composition showing the parallel tracks veering, crossing... echoed by the cables suspended to power the cable cars. Serghei is a good friend of mine from TE, and we got together a couple of time in the United States — once in Washington, DC and the other time in Los Angeles. He is gracious and kind.

The simple symmetric presentation of the interior of the Cathedral is well chosen. I especially light the bright sunlight filtering through the crack left by the doors slightly open. Excellent note as usual,

A timely shot for the 4th of July! Having not visited the 9/11 Memorial, I had no idea that there was a mote-like design, with the massive drop separated from the visitors by that low wall around the periphery. That has to be a very long wall circling the fountain, considering the number of names inscribed, only 3-5 lines high.

Hello again Ike,
I wonder what the graffiti artist wants to convey by making the impish character on the right, cigarette in hand, so colorful while making the robotic creature on the left, tethered by the ankle, knee, and wrist so metallic and monochromatic.

Hello dear Malgorzata,
Gert-esque or Rob-esque, the architectural edifice comprised of glass, steel and concrete makes a good picture. I wonder if it would not be somewhat better with the color vibrance reduced.
