And i still get to see such photos on TE, makes me smile brother, you talk about charm, i can feel the mood here, subtle in light and shadow, in textures of the wood and the stone below. the man stooping in the glow makes this just so cinematic, a start to an interesting story..these are the ones that count..
have a great year ahead, in health and happiness.

The surreal saturation of the wall give evokes such feelings. similar to the alleys seen in morocco. i just wish they could keep these places vehicle free too like the Fes-Al-Bali which boasts of being the world's largest car-free urban area (would that be carbon-free ? i wonder. i can almost smell the gasoline and the warmth of the sun in this one. perhaps the alleys are just wide enough to put it to good use, practical use. how long would you have to stand to find your subject, this photo is begging for one. this takes me back, for a brief but delightful moment, thanks Klaudio.
Wish you and the family good health and an eventful new year..

Strange if you preferred rome to iran, i think it would put you into a dilemma. which would feed your senses more ?
i like the use of the little girl, but just too many people you know at these places, would i wait for a woman robed in black with her daughter ? probably yeah :) Less is always good. having said that i would prefer a higher 'f' ;)

So a short hiatus always does good, i didn't miss much did i, how are you Klaudio ?
I start with this one, something i have never seen earlier, i have seen the stained glass from all over and have seen the beautiful colours off it, (i miss the stained glass window in my house staircase, similar arch) but never seen art and optics used tastefully, so creatively.
i prefer this photo in its purest form, the man couldn't be avoided i guess. but gives a sense of scale.
the new year is around the corner, gearing up for it, or travelling to quench the soul ? ;)

Voilà un endroit qui me parle bien !
Humahuaca pour tes 7 ans sur TE, c'est un très bon choix et tu as manifestement vu ce site bien mieux que moi
Bises à tous
J'ai un mal de chien à reprendre la litanie des commentaires sur TE !
Faudra qu'on se parle prochainement

I could hardly not comment this one of course !
I was quite unfortunate not to be able to do the trip up there. Really too bad !
Great light and colors in this nice view. You were very courageous to go close to the sulfur pot of gold
Have a nice WE

Whoopsss...i love this photo for the expression on the woman's face, it is priceless. The common pedestrian, returning from the super market, obliging with a photograph, i think she has a great attitude, not many would do that. Or perhaps a beautiful woman know how to respect the camera, that of an overseas tourists'. Or maybe she just respect you, the photographer. I think you were someone who could be trusted with a photo. So many ways of looking at this.
That probably is a "bobby brown" or a "chanel" red, the scarf causally flung around, colour coordinated dark tan bag, i think she is very conscious and confident woman who wants to get it right, she knows the fashion, hence the composure, the demeanour, the strong exterior which comes out so beautifully on her face.
I am guessing it was overcast, the photo begs for more sharpness, 1/25 with iso 100, but thats ok since this was more of a reaction photo.
For the eye contact, for a documented photo of a beautiful Iranian woman, i love this photo, show me more of this Klaudio. Ordinary moments from daily life because the ordinary can be just as beautiful.
Enigma, if she came in your dreams, she would definitely be an enigma ;)

That's one and a half feet tall, we call it the "tandoori roti" back here. "Tandoor" is the oven and "roti" is bread. The biggest I have seen is the size of a frisbee. Soft to be dipped in gravy and relished. Are you into into Indian food yet ? Or is just too much of spice and masala ?
That's alright, without the foot. I think bread is that part of the world is harder than here. I can tell you for sure not many Indians will get through that easily. I think it is the flour and the temperature which is responsible.
And hey, I just celebrated my third anniversary, so this dedication comes at a fitting time.
Thank your very much.
