It has been incredibly hot but so enjoyable! I had almost forgotten what it was like to dine out in the garden!
You had incredibly beautiful weather on your trip to London. Tower Bridge is an amazingly beautiful, as well as iconic structure and looks so good when the blue of its supports link with a bright blue sky!
I have taken many shots of this bridge and seen many shots but none from this angle, with the added interest of people relaxing with cooling drinks. I do think their interaction adds something special to the f/g before the almighty presence of THE BRIDGE takes over.
A really well conceived photograph with lovely shadow details.
Have a lovely day,

Lovely picture, it is really blue voyage:). Very romantic with the full moon.
PS. I can't understand what is the sense to show the photos with so many pixels. In www version it is very small and in beta is too big - it is impossible to see the composition and usually the sharpness is gone. And it is difficult to see the note and the picture in the same time when opening new window. In my experience, 1600 pixels is optimal - the whole screen and easy to read the note.
Have a nice day, it will be probably hot but no problem on the water.

Washing day also here. Now I can also have washing day in my garden, it it hot and no rain is expected. But I have no such an old tower close. For us it seems incredible that these houses and towers are centuries old, the people who are living there are used to it. Nice opuntias, and the place looks cool in the hot day.

Lovely street scene, with wonderful Mediterranean mood. How nice to sit in the shade and enjoy the holidays time. Pretty houses with pastel colours, interesting tower in the end of the street.

Hello Chris, Now you are moving fast from one place to another. New towns, new countries. Lovely picture from Sarajevo. Nice composition, charming river and houses, pretty colours.
I was in Sarajevo in 1968 with my mother, my first encounter with muslim world. I still remember how fascinated I was seeing people in Turkish traditional dress and on the cemetery. What a pity there were no digital cameras that time. I couldn't believe in what I saw later in media.
Have a nice trip Malgo

Hello Jean. Ah, what memories! The first British TE-Meeting was in Keswick and I had a great pleasure to be there. I can imagine that it can be very touristy, better to find a quiet place like this one. Nice picture from Lake District, walked somewhere near this place too, I suppose. attractive trees, still leafless in spring.

Haha, It really looks like fort in India! Amazing regular shape. No wonder the name of it is Castle Valley. As for nature views, the best in the world is Utah, so various and unique. The brown colour seems a bit strange, I remember more vivid red rocks.

Hello, Indeed, As an old woman I have no problem with making photos like this. But you made nice quick shot. The kids have fun, and so we do. It seems that Chicago is well worth seeing and there are sometimes nice offers for a relatively cheap flight but my visa has expired already and the new one is expensive.
I go to the lakes with LF on Friday and then in less than three weeks for my short (but I expect intensive) trip to Lofoten.
Also in Warsaw the hot days are coming, but I can stand home and it is quite cool inside. And I survived brazilian heat, so I am used to it.

I bet everyone would love to have the view of this beautiful structure in the collection. I had a plesure to visit it a while ago but without a proper camera and in the pre-digital times. So I am jealoussly looking at your picture here. You had a great sky: often in Athens the sky gets so grayish but you had a wonderful blue with touch of clouds.
Great light and colors.
Very well done,

I have travelled south from Porto through Coimbra and I don't know how could I miss Aveiro which I have seen afterwards so many beautiful photogaphs from.
This one is quite encouraging too.
I like very much those Portuguese pavements -so simple yet always beautiful and impressive.
The buildings around are also stylish and very pretty, great presentation from an intersting angle.
