Hello, dear Gert,
Oh, yes! It could be very amazing postcard from this city. Anyway I also have a few photoprints from my visit of Amsterdam in 1999. And I really like this kind of urban transport, but I can't leave my car, 'cause I need high speed and some volume for my equipment, shoping etc.
Have a nice time!

these are fun shots to take, especially when you see them on the backs of the camera :)
the final result is one with lots of silhouettes, but the colours in the clouds up top are the best feature.
love the large patch of blue in the middle too. fun atmospheric shot

Wow! I do remember these buildings too. This place is just impressive contrast with the desert behind the city. Perfect graphic, amazing reflection and very nice evening colors of the Phoenix's downtown. Thanks for memories! This photo brings me back to Arizona.
Best wishes from sunny Ural!

I like how you always show us more and more cultural images from your country. This is a totally new one in my opinion.
a very different type of festival.
I wonder what the various colours mean?
thanks for this one again, excellent compo and exposures
macjake (67100) 2016-05-29 11:28
oh man, this one is all about the composition, its beautiful!
so perfect, so symmetrical and the first impression it makes is quite the impact.
and then when you add in the blue and white colour combo its even more striking. great TE post

how could I possibly pass up on this one?
wonderful post card type of views.
and look at the clouds, wish I could have those clouds in all of my shots haha
I like the little splashes of yellow, they pop against the blues and greens.

Hello, dear John,
This kind of the street photos is one of my favorite. We can see the architecture, the weather and daily life and characters of the people on the foreground. As always perfect quality and interesting note.

thanks for the added into about the history of the door and its purpose, that adds to the overall post.
so much history and events have taken place here.
the lady up top adds a bit of spooky atmosphere haha

Hello, dear Mariusz!
If Arizona is The Grand Canyon State, so Utah is Beehive State. I don't know about the bees here, but the local landscapes are great. Just no words, I really would like to visit Utah in future.
I like this excellent shot, perfect DoF, gorgeous graphic of the rock structure.
All the best wishes to you and your family!
Have a great new week!
Tomorrow morning I will meet Mike in my city. ;)

I can't even count how many times I've driven down this street and seen this view!
and I've been in that restaurant a few times as well.
great to see the turning W sign so we can actually see the W, and nice to add in the trees up top of the Woodward.
fun shot of Downtown Van

Privately owned, i wonder who lives in it today.
I like the clock, and i like the numerous windows, that's alot of windows!
Too bad we cant get a look inside the Castle/Mansion, that would be fantastic :)
wonderful subject for TE

Hello, dear Takero!
Sorry for my late visit, I really busy last months.
As always, great capture of the festival moment, perfect quality. As you know I was in Nara too. But my photos are simple and not so festive.
Have a great new week!

Ok, sometime I also don't want to post some creative ideas and the postcard style is optimal way to show the travel report. )
Excellent photo from this legendary city with so rich history.
Splendid shot! Thumbs up!
