To jean113: wood or stone?

Thank you Jean,
I'm not really sure of the material of the ceilings but I would suppose they are made of the same stone as everything else here. I just found an interesting information that all...

So you actually celebrated the arrival of the new century and millennium during the night to 1 January 2001? Did you stubbornly refuse any celebration of the year 2000? ;-)

To PaulVDV: nandu

Thank you Paul,
My diary mentions "a huge black stone cow cut out of one rock" in the middle of the courtyard, but strangely I have no pictures. Maybe the light wasn't good.

That small piece of...

Thank you Mariusz,

No, I wasn't aware of this possibility, but it's very interesting. Grey and unremarkable in 2012, so maybe also in 2014.

I have only noticed many times that travelling along...

To kasianowak: afghan

Thank you Kaisa,
Have you got access to Netflix? I'm presently watching a documentary series called 'Turning Point: 9/11 and the War on Terror'. It's quite good, giving plenty of evidence of the...

To Royaldevon: attention

Thank you Bev,
I should say, in defence of the students, that they had been there quite a long time and may have been excused for losing attention. Perhaps I took the photo at an unfortunate moment...

To PaulVDV: my personal opinion

Thank you Paul,
I don't particularly like those towers either, so that's why I was anxious to point out that they were designed by a Dutch company. Blaming foreigners. ;-)
But they have been...

To lousat: modern art

Thank you Luciano,
I think Leonardo would actually have approved of Plensa. Maybe he would have found these heads slightly strange, but walking around them, seeing how their expressions change from...

Hello David,
I may have taken one or two photos in Bridgnorth but I haven't scanned any, so they were probably not very good. But a couple of years ago I posted a few photos from Ludlow and other...

Thank you Paul for your long critique and for adding this to your favourites.

I wouldn't be at all surprised if this kind of open air markets have been eliminated in an ever richer and ever more...

Dear Pierre,
I have no right of any opinion on your sightseeings, but you seem to take photos of practically every item in every church you visit, but you "probably" saw some of the finest mosaics...

But did you actually visit the real Santa Maria Maggiore and didn't see the mosaics that are among the finest in the world?

Hello Pierre,
Those two mosaics are from another church. But take a look at Wikipedia:

and scroll down a bit until you find the mosaics. They...

Thank you Paul,
I had a look at the photos you referred to. Especially the one by Marlene is very good.
In my early years of scanning I usually only picked a few photos from each country or each...

I agree with Brenda that those two features are quite useful. They should be just as easily fixed as the others, so I hope the techs will take care of them soon.
Thanks in advance,

To GyurMaster: canon

Thank you György,
I think I used a Canon FTB in 1976. Or possibly I still had the Canon FT QL I bought in 1972.
Have a nice weekend,
