I like the mixture of white waterfalls with all the greenery
After having seen Niagara in canada and Victoria in Zambia, I have to see those in Iguazu to have the whole panel of world famous waterfalls !
A very good one here

Now this made me smile instantly! As soon as I saw it in the gallery I thought "This HAS to be Noels!" :) Right up your alley, and it couldn't be more interesting amongst the ghoulish living. I figured it was a relatively smaller piece, and was surprised to read it's virtually life sized...creepy cool! Loved the detailed note, which made me take a much closer look to see the many little facets in play.
The black & white is a supreme choice for this type of subject, and the raw textures go a long way in the aged appeal. Without being mean spirited enough to mention names, this sure looks a lot like many of the Hollywood type that are uber-conscious about their appearances and taking the diet thing a bit too far...yeah, that's right Olsen twins, I'm talking to you! lol (Oops, guess I slipped on my promise!?)
Now I'm just waiting for this skeleton to peel away like something from The Mummy and start terrorizing the neighborhood. Crazy too, it so doesn't seem like it would fit with the actual house grounds, at least not from your linked picture. No matter the case, he's at least sporting a smile, can't be all that bad. With only ten of these still around, I hope they're protected from vandals...not quite the thing you see every day. Love it! Have a great day ahead. This stone looks like I feel going into a new work week. Ugh! Take it easy.
Cheers from the 48th state,

Quite an interesting study in color contrast. It would almost seem intentional for only the foreground to be isolated in color, but the remainder of the scene also looks naturally faded. I find this very intriguing, and it certainly puts all focus on the string of structures and objects lining the docks. It has a surreal type of atmosphere, almost dreamy in appearance. Love the distinct horizon line separating the background formations, this works well in a panoramic format too. Great result despite the flat light. Bonne semaine. All the best.

Una región de Argentina muy linda! Me gustaria mucho conocerla! Todas las fotos que yo he visto que son sacadas en ella son maravillosas y esta no és diferente!
Me gustam sobretodo los colores naturales y obtenidos, el punto de vista elegido y la composición!
Gracias por compartir!

I would say content and quality are just fine, anyone that can find something of interest to photograph in Winslow gets my admiration! :) There's a whole lot of nothing going on up there if you ask me. I once traveled here every quarter for work purposes, and can't ever remember anything worth while to take my camera...but you certainly found a nice little street corner that makes a super connection to the famed Route 66.
Quite a bit to take in with this capture too...the biker in the foreground, the old truck in the storefront window, the gentleman in passing and the couple dancing upstairs all come together for a pleasing image...real or otherwise. Thanks for bringing a bit of life to this quiet corner of the state. Have a great week ahead.
