To ChrisJ: prayer calls

Thanks Chris,
Only one or two mosques in Sweden have prayer calls: once a week, for the mid-day prayers on Friday, and those mosques are located a good distance from the nearest residential areas....

To macjake: light pole

Thanks Craig,
For all that I know it's a light pole standing there. One of the workshop photos shows several of the same kind along the street.
It happens very rarely when I take photos in crowds...

To adramad: ruin

Thank you Luis,
It's good to hear that there is probably a new building where the other one was burned down. The Google street view still shows the ruin, but that was from July 2014, just a year...

To PaulVDV: lamp

Thanks Paul,
Although I don't actually see a bulb inside the ornate top I can't think of anything but a lamp post. They are seen all over the city, along the streets, at least in the finer areas....

To Royaldevon: litter

Thank you Bev,
Your last paragraph reminded me that I had forgotten to mention the litter, but maybe it's just as well that I ignored it. I decided that cleaning the ground by clone stamping...

To macjake: snapshots don't wait

Thanks Craig,
I don't remember if it would have been possible to find a place exactly opposite this, but I know for sure that if I had tried to find one, this moment would have been lost by the time...

Cheating on voting day or during the counting of votes is usually not the problem. Much worse is the control of media and ruthless scapegoat propaganda during the campaign.
Thanks for your critique...

To Royaldevon: sweet

Thank you Bev,
I wasn't really sure if they were sweet potatoes or maybe some other tropical plant. But if you say so...;-)
Have a nice week,

Palestine would be safe for you but too boring with all those time-wasting roadblocks. Mongolia? Sri Lanka? Kungsholmen in Stockholm? :D

To kasianowak: Safer alternative

Thank you Kasia for all your kind words.
Djenné is no doubt a safer alternative to Timbuktu since it is some distance away from the heartland of the extremists, in an area largely controlled by the...

No language is perfect. In Swedish we probably have at least a dozen ways to spell the sound "sch" (as in German, or "s" in Hungarian). The "best" language is probably Turkish, where every sound was...

Thank you Murat,
If you move the little yellow man to the marked spot you can "walk" along the street, turn back and see the partly charred wall of the green house. You can of course also walk all...

Thank you Kasia for your kind words and for adding this to your favs.
