Great macjake 2014-05-06 10:24

Hi Gert
well, i certainly didn't expect to see that sign in the WS photo! just think...the fact that they even HAD to put up that sign tells you alot!!!! yikes.

but as you say, it's a fairly common occurance, thats too bad.

but it does make for a wonderful real life cultural photo.

Personally i've never heard of this city before, maybe i'm showing my ignorance there?
I'm a big fan of the grunge and grime, so these type of city scenes appeal to me. and if you can capture brightly colored apparel than thats even better.

lots to keep me interested, scanning the scene from side to side. another fine post.

leaving for Istanbul, Athens, Santorini, Rome, Venice on thursday :)

Default To macjake: big city

Thanks Craig,
No wonder you didn't hear of Hyderabad. It's only about three times as large as Vancouver

Wish you a great trip to Europe. It will be a tough challenge to find original pictures from Santorini, which is possibly the most "overexposed" place in Greece. It looks fantastic but it's dreadfully touristic.

Default santorini

Hi Gert
i totally agree with you about Santorini, and the same goes for Venice.
But i guess there are some places in the world that are almost must-see cities.
for me personally Venice fits that mold, Santorini looks so beautiful its also a must-see at least once in a lifetime.

And you're also correct about finding it hard to produce a unique photo of both places...but you know me, i'll give it a darn good try. Especially with my wide angle views. Hopefully i can pull out some surprises haha

Stay tuned!
Thanks again
